Life Lessons

Posted on

The greatest lessons we may ever learn are the simplest ones we learned early in life.

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…” 
― Dr. SeussOh, the Places You’ll Go!

“Why fit in when you were born to stand out?” 

― Dr. Seuss

I Look Into The World

Posted on
Waldorf Morning Verse
 
I look into the world
In which the sun is shining,
In which the stars are sparkling,
In which the stones repose;
Where living plants are growing,
Where sentient beasts are living,
Where man, soul-gifted, gives the spirit a dwelling place.
 
I look into the soul
That lives within my being.
The World-Creator moves
In sunlight and in soul-light,
In wide world space without,
In soul-depths here within.
To Thee, Creator Spirit,
I will now turn my heart
To ask that strength and blessing
To learn and work may grow
Within my inmost being.

The Sound “Om”

Posted on

“It is believed to be the basic sound of the world and to contain all other sounds. It is said to be the sound of the universe.”

“The entire universe is moving. Nothing is ever solid or still. Everything that exists pulsates, creating a rhythmic vibration”

“Chanting Aum allows us to recognize our experience as a reflection of how the whole universe moves – the setting sun, the rising moon, the ebb and flow of the tides, the beating of our hearts.”

New Year

Posted on
For the past few years my New Years Resolutions have been focused more on acts than getting rid of bad habits (example. stop eating unhealthy shit, quit drinking.. workout more..) basically all the things people say their going to do but by March or April have already gone back to all their old habits. Last year I chose to do Random Acts of Kindness. Although I may have not gone as out of my way on this as I had intended I did have this thought in mind all year  and will continue this act through out 2013 and every year after that. 
 
This year my focus will be on not holding back, not letting anything stop me from whatever it is I want to do. Not letting myself say “No” when I know I can, not worrying about being the best. And remembering that its better to fail trying than to not try at all.

Looking back on last year there were many times where I went into a situation expecting to fail. Even the simplest things I made hard for myself. Two things that stand out are #1 Jury Duty… was it really THAT hard? No… basically you get paid (very little) to sit in a room that’s 2 degrees and listen to a bunch of lawyers use big words and say the same thing over and over 5000 different ways. Seriously trips me out the amount of $$$ they are paid an hour to be there and not ONCE were any of them on time… Moral of the story.. I’m $188.08 richer than I would have been if they hadn’t picked me after 3 LONG days choosing their Jury. I hope I NEVER have to have my fate decided by a jury.. AND I’ve been on time more than some of the greatest lawyers in the Country! =) That’s pretty awesome.

The second thing. Working at 24 Hour Fitness. Yep most of you don’t even know I even worked there. But I did! One whole.. LONG month. I’ve been stuck with a bunch of credit card debt for almost two years and needed to pay it off but was barley breaking even with what I was making working part time at Pure Barre. Basically everything I made was just enough to cover food, gas, and ONE manicure a month. What like I’m not going to get my nails done? … yeah right… The rest went to my credit card bills leaving me nothing left for fun and shoes!! =( Anyways.. I was so scared of messing everything up while I was there. Learning a new POS system, opening, closing procedures.. sounds hard right? Really… I acted like someone had asked me to be the freakin president and was beating myself up cause I didn’t know how. But when it came down to it I’m at a point in my life right now where I just have to follow my heart and I don’t work for $8.00 an Hour!! That is crazy.. My time is worth so much more than that and more importantly my heart just wasnt there. But with that being said, I have nothing but good things to say about the Pasadena Halstead 24 Hour Fitness Team. They are great, friendly and welcoming. Which is hard to find when it comes to retail/service jobs. And although my time there was short and sweet… I paid off TWO credit cards and was able to start off 2013 credit card debt free. =)

More to come… Happy 2013!!

The Road Not Taken

The Road Not Taken
BY ROBERT FROST
 
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
 
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
 
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
 
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
