Walk Until You Feel There Are No Hills

Walk until you feel there are no hills.

Exercise for a happy, healthy life.

Troubles: You can’t walk away from your troubles but you can walk your troubles away. What do I mean by that? I mean you can exercise your way to a better tomorrow.

If in your everyday life you feel like you’re constantly climbing over hills, you put one behind you only for another to take its place. Then it’s time for you to take a walk, walk every day and when you’re on your walk think of every good thing that has happened in your life. Not only will your body thank you for the exercise, your mind will get stronger too. If you keep the exercising and positive thinking routine up for long enough; you will find all the hills in your life will have disappeared, and your walking will have gotten easier too.

The little things that annoy you today will no longer be part of your life because you will have found better things to concentrate on.

Some people ask me why I walk. The answer is simple; I walk because I want to have a fit body and healthy mind, not only for now but for my future too.

There is Plenty of Time for Everybody to do Everything

A bad day is not the end of the year.There is an appropriate time to experience everything as we go through life; most people will experience all of the following.

  • There’s a time to live, and a time to die.
  • A time to grow, and a time to mature.
  • A time to hurt, and a time to heal.
  • A time to cry, and a time to laugh.
  • A time to defend, and a time to attack.
  • A time to eat, and a time to diet.
  • A time for despair, and a time for elation.
  • A time for other people, and a time for you.
  • A time to crawl, a time to walk, a time to run, and a time to dance.
  • A time to find yourself, and a time to lose yourself.
  • A time for sadness, and a time for happiness.
  • A time to learn, and a time to forget.
  • A time to remain silent, and a time to speak.
  • A time for war, and a time for peace.
  • A time to hate, and a time for love.

We experience everything in its own good time; we can neither rush into the future or stay in the past because life just doesn’t work that way.

The best thing we can do is enjoy the good times, put up with the not so good times, always believing the best times of our life are just ahead of us.

“What’s meant to be will be.”

Expecting People to be Anything Only Leads to Disappointment

Expect to be disappointed.The person who learns to expect nothing from anybody else will never experience disappointment.

  • Don’t expect people to be nice to you just because you’re a nice person.
  • Don’t expect people to laugh at your jokes all the time.
  • Don’t expect people to be grateful for your honesty.
  • Don’t expect people to be beautiful on the inside just because they’re beautiful on the outside.
  • Don’t expect to know anybody else until you know yourself first.
  • Don’t expect people to be intelligent.
  • Don’t expect people to be stupid.
  • Don’t expect manners from young people, or some old people for that matter.
  • Don’t expect people to like how you dance.
  • Don’t expect people to be like you.
  • Don’t expect sadness to last forever.
  • Don’t expect everybody to like you.
  • Don’t expect everybody to hate you.
  • Don’t expect people to understand your point of view.
  • Don’t expect to be happy all the time.
  • Don’t expect the people you love to love you back.

“Expecting life to be fair just because you’re fair is equivalent to expecting a lion not to eat you because you don’t want to eat it.” The one thing most people can expect is.

“Expect to be disappointed.”

Not Everybody is Looking for Signs but Most People Are

Gratitude is an important signIf you’re not looking for a sign from God, you’re more than likely looking at star signs, good luck charms, lucky numbers, lucky colours or any of the myriad of ways you can determine without looking at what you’ve got to determine if you’re going to have a good day.

Black cats and magpies are some people’s favourites as they have special qualities that can make the difference between a good day and a bad day. Of course, these creatures have no idea of the importance of their role; I wonder do the cat or magpie look at humans and think, “It must be my lucky day I’ve just seen a human wearing red.” I doubt it but who knows.

Not everybody is looking for signs because they are too busy living their lives to worry about what numbers are important or what colour jumper to wear; they are the people who understand the only sign they need to look out for is; they have a roof over their head, they are able to wake up in the morning without pain. The have the ability to get out of bed unaided. They have clothes to put on. They know they have enough food and money to last the day. They have people in their lives who make them feel needed. They know their day is going to be taken up with useful tasks that will enable them to do the same thing tomorrow and for that they are happy.

A lot of people take those things for granted until they don’t have them anymore and then they realise how important they were. “Some day most people will realise the little things in life are really the big things.”

Being grateful for what you have today is important because if you spend all your time thinking about what tomorrow will bring, it will bring you nothing but more thoughts. The following quote sums it up nicely.

“Gratitude is the most important sign you need to feel today.”

I Like People Enough to Improve My Attitude

I try to be a better person.Being sensitive to other people’s emotions is the beginning of a life-long battle of; “do I interact with them,” or “do I leave them alone.” The battle does get easier the older you get. I personally leave most of them alone as I have a good understanding of the meaning behind the following quotes;

  • “I love mankind, it’s people I can’t stand.”~Charles M. Schulz.
  • “I like your Christ, I don’t like your Christians.” ~Mahatma Ghandi.
  • “Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” ~Confucius.

To think is a part of me.I’ve spent a lot of time learning to be happy with my own company and thoughts with the occasional conversation with interesting people who have similar values; although in recent times I’ve tried to follow a different train of thought. The following quote sums it up nicely.

  • “When you stop expecting people to be perfect, you can like them for who they are.” ~Donald Miller.

If magic existed outside of Disney movies I would have one wish and it’s not true love’s kiss to be bestowed upon everybody, it would be;

“I wish everybody in the world was happy with who they are, and what they looked like.”

Love is an Emotional Journey of Discovery

Love is an emotional drug.Love is the only emotion that imbues brilliant qualities onto another person which they may or may not have. It clouds the mind into believing they have everything you have been looking for all your life, and your life would be incomplete if they don’t love you back. Of course, this is not true as the divorce courts will testify; love only lasts until you notice the first thing you don’t like about your prospective partner. If it’s a minor flaw you will work around it; if it’s a major flaw it will be the beginning of the end, you may indeed end up disliking the ground they walk on.

Of course, real relationships are built on trust and respect, these qualities are enduring unlike love which is whimsical at best and downright confusing for most people; I’ve yet to see a description of love which adequately describes the emotional roller coaster love creates.

Yes, love is an emotional journey of discovery but it’s not about discovering what other people are like, it’s a journey you take within your own mind to discover one aspect of the real you.

You Are Everything You Are Meant To Be

You are everything you are meant to be.Fate is everything you experience while you are making plans for your future; it cannot be planned for, nor can it be avoided because it was written in the time before your life began that you would experience these people and events.

You will see everything you are meant to see, even the things you’d prefer not to have seen at all.

You will hear everything you are meant to hear; the moment you don’t hear what you’re supposed to hear, out of your mouth will come; “What did you say?

You will touch everything you are meant to touch, even the things you touch by accident is meant to happen. The moment you put your fingers up to your nose hoping for the smell of chocolate is a moment you don’t forget.

Some people are meant to be rich, while other people are meant to be jealous of the rich people. Some people are meant to realise, “Money will not make you happy but it is more comfortable to be unhappy in the back of a Rolls Royce.”

You will experience every emotion possible from despair to elation because you are meant to live a full life, not just exist on the peripheries of life.

Some people are meant to be happy with their body image, other people are meant to be unhappy about tiny parts of theirs while other people just don’t care about their bodies until their body can’t bring them where they want to go, then they join the unhappy group.

Some people are meant to complain until they realise everybody they interact with complains as much as they do, and they decide to change. “You attract who you are, not the people you want into your life.”

Some people are meant to be a worrier until one day they will look back on all the things they worried about and realise very little of what they worried about actually happened.

Some people are meant to be thinkers, they will think incessantly about the meaning of life until one day they will look back and realise life has passed them by while they were thinking about it.

The difference between thinkers and people who worry is one thinks about the past while the other concentrates on the future.

Some people are meant to believe in God because they feel they need to have somebody to blame if life doesn’t go quite to plan. The common phrase is, “how could he let this happen.”

Some people are meant to believe there is no God but they live their life in such a way that when they die and find out there is an almighty vengeful God, he will look at their lives with pride. In other words, they take responsibility for their own thoughts and actions.

You are meant to interact with everybody who enters your life because there are no coincidences, some people enter your life as a blessing, others are there to teach you a lesson; and then there are the special people who in your moment of greatest need will give you the advice you need to steer you back onto the course of life you were meant to lead.

“Fate is neither cruel nor kind, it is something everybody experiences; it just happens.”

You Can Use Your Imagination to Make You Stronger or Weaker

Bee positive....There is no reality, there is only imagined reality. What you think about yourself becomes your reality. If you think you’re perfect in every way; every time you see somebody looking in your direction and talking, you are going to think they are saying positive things about you. The opposite is also true, if you only concentrate on what’s not right with you, when you see people looking in your direction and talking, you will think they are speaking negatively about you.

The best example of this is when you see the headline, “how did she end up with him?” The answer is simple, he thought he was god’s gift to women and she thought she could do no better because of her flabby thighs, which nobody could see except her.

The above scenario is played out in every area of your life. Whether you think negatively or positively about the list is a choice you make, and it is a reality you will see.

  • Your looks.
  • Your body.
  • Your health.
  • Your family.
  • What you thought about the area you grew up in or the country you’re from.
  • The house you live in.
  • The car you drive.
  • The clothes you wear.
  • Your chosen career.

The thing is; “If you can imagine everything in your life in a positive way, nobody can take your imagination away from you so you will always lead a very positive life.”

“Everybody has an imagined reality, people with a positive outlook live in a positive reality, while people with a negative outlook will wonder, “why me.”

I’ll leave you with these quotes,

  • “Aerodynamically, the Bumble bee shouldn’t be able to fly, but the Bumble bee doesn’t know it so it goes on flying anyway.” ~Mary Kay Ash
  • “What you imagine becomes your reality.”
  • “The day you change your attitude is the day you change your life.”
  • “The world is but a canvas to our imagination.” ~Henry David Thoreau

My Memory Does Not Work That Way Naturally

Lyrics are somethingI’d love to remember the lyrics to the songs I love but my memory does not work that way naturally. Maybe one day I will put enough effort into that project but it’s not going to be today.

I have to utmost respect for people who can sit down and sing all night long without a pause for thought, they are geniuses in my eyes.

The following quote is one I will live with for now.

“I don’t know the words to this song, so I’ll just make them up as I go along.”

I project my Good Qualities onto Everybody

A good judge of character.If you fall into the group of people I like, I will project all my good qualities onto you, then it is up to you live up to my expectations or you will be put into the group called acquaintances. I will not tell you if you fail because that’s not your problem or is it a failing on your behalf. It’s one of my failings because I will have projected qualities onto you that you were unable or unwilling to live up to.

I expect people to be positive, punctual, polite, honest, intelligent with a good sense of humour. It doesn’t seem like a list that’s unreachable but you’d be surprised by how many people fall short of what I think is just good character.

“Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters” ~Albert Einstein

Do Not Play with The Emotions of Other People

Do Not Play with the emotions of“Leave them alone,” if your thoughts, words and actions are not going to benefit other people in a positive way; change the way you think, don’t use words you know will embarrass them and don’t use your body language skills to pretend something that you have no intention on following up on.

The benefit of changing your behaviour will benefit you as much as the people you interact with because, when you play with other people’s emotions, you are also sending mixed signals to your own subconscious mind. This causes a dichotomy which will harm your health and mental health in the long run.

The people you interact with will also appreciate your honest friendship instead of somebody they have to be wary of all the time.

If you can’t or will not change, instead of picking on people with insecurities, find somebody with a strong mind who is capable of playing games with you; being on the receiving end may teach you a lesson you can learn no other way.

Never play with the feelings of others, because you may win the game but the risk is that you will surely lose the person for a life time. ~William Shakespeare
