INTRO TO THIS WEEK >>
Valentine’s Day happened last week. As you might know, I have been quite lonely; looking for love, I am. I thought you might be also? so many of us are. I gathered some ideas that might help you find the love of your life; as I am looking.
Even after my brain injury and 37-day coma, I was able to find love, married, and had kids. So, no matter who you are, there is hope for you, if you are looking.
If you are already in a passionate relationship, use these ideas to build yours even stronger. Perhaps you can pretend you just met and then follow the ideas in the Inspirational Words section.
Did you know I cut my own hair? I just bend forward and use a clipper to cut all the hairs the same length. I do the same thing with my facial hair. I used to have to shave twice a day, now I trim it about once a week. I’ve never had complaints or laughter about my hairdo. Saves much money, which I don’t mind at all. Would you do such a thing?
I am greatly enjoying my travels, you could do the same if you found a way? As I’ve said in the past, “If someone else can do it, so can you!, you just have to find a way.” If you can keep this mindset in an optimistic way, it will make your life run much easier.
It’s amazing how many chickens and roosters inhabit the Keys; they are everywhere. Being here is like being in a large barnyard, with roosters crowing all the time.
Not being careful enough, I guess, I am awaiting a new screen for my laptop, which should be here within a few days. Until then I am using one I bought, which I will return later to Best Buy and get my thousand bucks back. This computer doesn’t have a port to put my photo disk in, so I am including photos I have enjoyed from the past.
WORDS TO INSPIRE YOU! >>
Inspirational quotes and motivational sayings have an amazing ability to change the way we feel about life and can change our thinking.
This is why I find them so interesting, challenging, and important on the path to joy and happiness and finding ways to inspire yourself.
Inspiration >> The process of being mentally stimulated to do a certain thing.
I hope to inspire you with my words.
Words have power!
You see, the way you think and feel about yourself, including your beliefs and expectations about what is possible for you, determine everything that happens in your life. It all derives from your quality of thinking.
When you change the quality of your thinking,
you change the quality of your life,
Just as positive words can make someone smile, and/or, a well-timed humorous quote can make someone laugh, our own thoughts react to the world in real-time. You have this control.
You have complete control over only one thing in the universe — your thinking — and that’s where motivational quotes come in!
To be successful, you have to use each day as an opportunity for improvement, to be better, to get a little bit closer to your goals. It might sound like a lot of work—and with your busy schedule, next to impossible.
But the best part is, the more you accomplish, the more you’ll want to do, the higher you’ll want to reach. So as long as you have the hunger for success, you will always have the power within you to achieve it.
Self-talk is so important—THINK RIGHT!
Motivational words, yes, they’re just words.
But they’re positive words; they will keep you on track.
I hope the words I pick do help you.
BE INSPIRED BY THESE WORDS>>
Valentines Day just occurred, were you with your love? I was alone, as I usually am. It’s OK that you were alone on Valentine’s Day, hope you enjoyed yourself. For me, the day was good excuse to eat chocolate?
Yet, this day might give you a good reason to find your love?
And, these suggestions are for simply making a new friend, also.
And, if your relationship could use some help, these words may help?
1—Go Where People Have Interest in the Same Things as You.
Skip parties if you don’t like them, but, of course, you have to go where you can meet people. Join social groups or meet-ups of your interests; be a participant in a cause you believe in; get involved in politics, if that’s your interest. At the very least, you’re doing something you like and at the very best, you’ll meet somebody like-minded as you.
2—You Still Need to be Choosy.
The, “You’ll find love when you’re not looking” approach usually does not work. Of course, it’s possible, but rarely happens. That is always there, but you must try other approaches, as well. To me, at times, it’s an excuse for not wanting to put in the effort. Yet, don’t be desperate. Put out effort in to find someone, but don’t act like any breathing human will do; be choosy.
3—Become a Hopeful Optimist.
That perfect partner is there for you, you must continue to be open for that. Always have that in the back of your mind. Love is meant for you, let the world know! Keep meeting new people and be open for anything. You have to embrace the process of dating, so choosing a “Hopeful Optimist” mindset will make it more fun once you’re convinced true love is really out there for you. If nothing else, you’ll be making new friends. Make this your main aim in life if finding the right partner is truly your goal. In your mind tell yourself you are “making new friends”, and that should be your first aim. Save sex until you are committed in a sole relationship with someone.
4—Don’t Seek Romance, Seek Friendship First.
Romance is for dates, you want more, though, and you know that. It’s part of your relationship, and it’s the relationship that will get you through the rough times. Don’t look for someone to sweep you off your feet. You might take a big fall if you do that. Look for someone who likes give-and-take, who seeks your opinion and considers it, who cares about what “you” want, too.
5—Get involved in life, look up from your phone.
Your new partner is everywhere — if you’re looking if they’re looking (and they are). People often complain they can’t meet anyone, but then go out and keep their heads down the entire time, staring at their phone. Wherever you are, be present and look around to see who is looking at you. Make eye contact with the cute stranger and smile, that could lead to something — that’s an invitation for her or him to come over and talk to you.
6—You are You.
It’s important if you are getting out of a bad relationship to take some time to be alone. Take some time to be happy by yourself, or, at least, learn to. If you feel better about yourself you will have better feelings to find the right person. You will be in better shape to meet the ‘right’ person if you have time to heal, spend time alone to figure out who you are again, reflect on what went wrong in the past, so you don’t repeat the same mistakes over and over again.
7—Happy people (like you) attract the same!
Think about who you want to be with, and then be that person. The trouble, often, is you may not be feeling good about yourself. The key might be to like yourself better? If you’re not a self-confident, happy, positive person, you cut your chances of being in the right attitude to find the right kind of person,” Change needs to be in your forecast.
8—A Quick Sexual Attraction Often Fades.
Most good love starts slow and grows. It’s a slow sizzle — it takes a while to create. Attraction is important, but if you don’t have to feel it right away since that instant spark is usually more about lust and less about the stuff of real relationships. Emotion can change and deepen over time, so give people (and yourself) a chance.
9—Beware of the ‘opposites attract’ theory – it’s not true.
At first opposites attract, but oven they face major trouble down the road. The more you see eye-to-eye on, the more you are alike, there will be less to argue and compromise about. People who are like you are easier for you to be with and that makes for a far more healthy long-term relationship.
10—What do “You” Need?
Do you need a lot of love?
Do you need lots of affection?
Do you need help in your life?
Do you have to know what’s going on all the time?
Figure out what you want out of a relationship. And, of course, satisfy their likes and wants and needs, too. Whatever your manner is, it’s alright, but you need to know it and be able to communicate it to your future lover or spouse. You can train each other if you both know what each needs.
I love you>>>>>Kit
Now, it’s time to get out there and do
something incredible that you can rejoice in!
MY DAILY JOTTINGS >>
2/13—So, I came to see sensei Soto or some lessons in martial arts. The first night I parked about a mile down on his Road for sleep. At 11 p.m. a cop woke me up and told me I had to stay at a campground or a motel.
There was absolutely no one in the area, it was all wilderness. I was about to ask the cop, “what harm am I causing?” But, I didn’t.
He said if this happens again, I’ll have to give you a misdemeanor. I could have said, can you also give me a Mrs. Demeanor? Or how about a mister meaner, boy, you could be him? I could have said these things for comedy, but I didn’t.
I just moved on to a different Key and parked where I saw others parked on the street. Feel safe here, as I write this at 1:30 and night. Hope you slept well.
2/14—Happy Valentines Day—I Love You!
Got down to Key West. When to use my laptop and the screen is not coming in clear. I use my computer constantly, I’m going to have to head 100 miles back North to go to Best Buy how about fixing my computer or getting a new one. I was also looking forward to staying here for a month or two.
At Best Buy I bought another computer to use until mine is working again. This one is superb; at a thousand bucks it should be. A nice temporary use of a nice computer.
This evening back at a library I have been at before. There is an outlet outside the library, I can use that. This is in a shopping center, so many are coming and going.
2/16—Good thing I carry tools, including a drill, with me. My shelves needed work, so this morning I applied myself to fixing them. Turned out great, everything is working well in my van.
96 degrees yesterday. I heard it was ten degrees yesterday back where I used to live in Pennsylvania. I am so glad I made the drive down here. I believe I am going to go swimming in the ocean this afternoon, want to go?
It was delightful to be in the ocean, and I was able to park right next to the water. With the temperature of 96, it was a good day to go for a multi-mile bike-ride, so I did. When I got back the ocean was calling, so I had to go in. Afterward I jumped in the shower with a washcloth and soap, so a clean Kit once again.
I met Bible Bill today at Mallory Square through Will. Bill runs a church near Key West and, for many years, has gone to Mallory Sunset Celebration to attract an audience for his Sunday church. His church is about seven miles away and he is allowing me to park in his lot for overnight sleep.
2/17—His church is right off the main road into Key West, so I heard traffic, but not through the night.
Traveling with Tina
2/18—The library for Key West is still not functioning for inside visits. I am at a McDonald’s, where I can plug in and get online.
I will be getting this blog to you tomorrow. I hope it comes out the same as usual, since I am using a different computer. Be sure and let me know what you think.
On GPS I searched for parks in the area, and I’m glad I did.
First was Little Hamaca City Park. This park is quite large and interesting, and also happens to be right next to the airport. Heard a few take off, I knew I could not sleep in a place like this.
Here is me in New Zealand, I loved it there
Key West Wildlife Center up next, so I went. In the magnificent place they have native flora and fauna and animals of the Key West Area; quite interesting it was. Any damaged or hurt animals or foliage they help and get back life. Rescues and rehab are their virtues.
keywestwildlifecenter.org/ take a look!
Still looking for somewhere to rest my head for the night, I turned at Steven Avenue (who is Steve, anyway?) I parked in a place that was on the passenger side fence and wilderness behind, the other side did not have residential. So a perfect place to spend the night.
I should sleep well tonight, hope you do, too.
2/19—What a great sleep I had.
At a McDonald’s right now getting this out to you.
I’m lonely out here, I would love to hear from you.
Either through Facebook or email, firstname.lastname@example.org
MY CHALLENGE FOR YOU THIS WEEK >>
Bring joy to at least five other people this week!
Even look for that love who is awaiting you.
Right now I am hanging out in Key West because I am awaiting two things that are being mailed to my friend’s house, Will. Not sure where to go after, it is cold north of here (here being in the 90s during the day. Help me decide.
