ON WONDERFUL ADVENTURES!
INTRO TO THIS WEEK >> As you know, I have been very lonely in my travels. Settling in with Beth went quite well. The love has grown strong and I am quite happy.
We plan to be together until our death, but then again, perhaps death won’t come? Maybe death is just a human habit that people “think” they have to follow?
Have you completed what you wanted to before your demise? We have limited time here on earth, finish what you can before your end. The main thing is, find as much joy as possible, as you help others, and your life will be much better.
This week I did a lot of work on the house. Going from room to room and fixing up each. I’ve seen so many homes that are, basically, a mess; I hope yours is not that. In each room, I am painting a different color and we are changing what is in it, too. I put this floor down, too.
So easy to do, and can be cheap, too. A gallon of paint is about twenty bucks and can make your home a NEW place. Anyone can pick up a paintbrush and paint. Make changes to your house to make your mind start thinking in better ways.
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 our path to joy and happiness and finding ways to inspire ourselves.
Inspirational quotes and ideas provide us with a quick and timely burst of wisdom to get our focus back, offering the inspiration needed for the day or occasion.
I hope to inspire you with my words.
Words have power.
At any age, you can (and should) make changes to make your life better.
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 improve the quality of your thinking, you change the quality of your life—sometimes instantly!
Just as positive words can make someone smile, and/or, a well-timed amusing quote can make someone laugh, your own thoughts react to the world in real-time. You have this control! In fact, you have complete control over only one thing in the universe — your thinking — and that’s where motivational quotes come in!
To keep your motivation, 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 you can do 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>>
From my book series, Beyond Your Potential.
Creative people are people who pay attention to small ideas. These ideas, or combination of ideas, can blossom into a big breakthrough, or something that will take off. Sometimes, what you can do is take the basic idea for one situation and apply it to another. The people who have creative ideas are looking at the same things as everyone else – then they think something different from everyone else.
Learn About Everything
The key to creativity is curiosity. To increase your curiosity and creativity, don’t just be concerned with how to finish first in the rat race or how to beat the system. Be enthralled with the world around you and ask questions. The creative individual wants to know about all kinds of things, such as:
What is life and why are we here?
What happens after death?
What is the natural life of a frog?
What is the lifespan of a frog in captivity?
Is it going to rain today or just stay cloudy?
How does one juggle 5 balls?
Be that curious person. Ask questions and learn all you can about everything. Use your creative mind to put two (or three or five) ideas together to come up with something new. Successes are waiting for you, open your mind and make changes happen in your world toward the success you desire.
A Storm in the Brain
Rekindle your childhood curiosity. Remember the spark that went off in your head when you would see something that amazed you or scared you or just didn’t make sense to your inexperienced mind? Out of your curiosity will grow the desire to see ordinary things in a new way, thinking this way will open your mind. Curiosity, at its hub, is all about noticing and expanding on something that means something to us, that we find interesting, that we can latch on to personally. Once your curiosity is in gear, use the technique of brainstorming to enhance your creativity. Brainstorming is the method of writing down all the thoughts and ideas that come into your mind related to a question or problem no matter how trivial or absurd it might seem.
The Storm Continues
When brainstorming, write or type as quickly as you can without stopping to evaluate what you’ve listed so far. When you are look over what you have written, you will see that some of the ideas were silly and dumb, but many times, even silly and dumb ideas can grow into something good and productive. I used brainstorming to help me to write this book and the others in the series. I started by writing down all the ideas and words that I had and then later developed what I thought was the best material to help you.
Try Different Ways
Be flexible with the so-called rules of life. Sometimes, you will have to break out of one pattern in order to discover another one. You can be creative in just about anything that you do, even if it’s something you’ve been doing exactly the same way for twenty years be it signing your name, taking out the trash, or washing the dishes. You can transform even mundane, dull, mechanical tasks into fun and meaningful ones by simply asking questions, brainstorming, and embracing your creativity. By trying new ways to do even simple things, your enjoyment in life will increase, and you may think of a better way to do something.
You Are Creative, Yes?
Some people are better at creating new ideas than others. Some seem to be born with a natural inclination toward creativity like artists, poets, composers, philosophers, and jugglers. Remember though, that you can develop your creativity. While it may not come as easily for you as for say a painter, remember that even the natural painter will continue to develop their creativity by practicing.
At any age, you can make the change and aim your life anew.
Now, it’s time to get out there and do
something incredible that you can rejoice in!
MY DAILY JOTTINGS >>
No traveling, not much to write about this week.
But, there was this >>
8/8—I completed the new kitchen floor. A used one-foot square linoleum tiles that are sticky back. You peel the backing off of the back and place it were it goes. Make sure things are lined up right as you do it or the end can go bad.
How is your kitchen, do you need a new floor?
I would love to hear from you!
Either through Facebook or email – firstname.lastname@example.org
MY CHALLENGE FOR YOU THIS WEEK >>
Pick out one room in your house that needs it, remove everything from the room.
Paint it a fabulous color.
As you return stuff to the room, separate things that should go elsewhere or be disposed of.
Then, of course, continue to do this through time to the rest of your home.
NEXT BLOG >> Time for me to start juggling again, putting time in to practice. Can you juggle? Below are instructions for you to learn – DO IT!
Chapter 2—HOW TO JUGGLE!
Juggling is easy once you know the secret, although many people don’t think they could ever learn. With a good comedy\juggling act, you can go far in the entertainment world. Having been a professional comedian\juggler for over 18 years, I can tell you that it has added much to my life.
By breaking the skill of juggling down into component parts, almost anyone can learn. It is a matter of breaking through the limits you may have set for yourself. For juggling, it is best to stand so that you can maneuver well to catch the balls. Stay very relaxed and remember that it’s more important to think of the catch, rather than the throw.
Throw one ball back and forth, hand to hand, so that it goes to the same center point. The ball should reach a peak of about six inches above your head on each throw. Only watch the ball when it’s at the top arc, after it is thrown.
Have one ball in each hand. Throw a ball from one hand to the other; when it gets to the peak, throw the second ball underneath so it goes to the same height as the first ball. The balls will trace a figure “8” pattern in the air before landing in opposite hands. The first ball you throw is the first ball you catch. Switch off the lead hand each time you make the two throws. Now, hold two balls in your favorite hand and just throw one to the other hand—this is how you will start your three-ball juggling.
Have two balls in your preferred hand and one ball in your other hand. Start the pattern with the hand that has two balls in it. When the first ball thrown reaches the peak, throw the second underneath that ball back to the hand that threw the first ball. The hand that the ball is coming to you are going to throw with. It’s just like walking–right, left, right, left.
It helps to think of two imaginary points, about twelve inches above each hand, at which to aim. Seen from the front, your hands should throw from the center and catch on the outside. Seen fm the side, your pattern should be in one even plane. Remember, one throw at a time; many people tend to go too fast with their juggling.
MAKE YOUR LIFE THIS WEEK SOMETHING
THAT YOU CAN WRITE ABOUT!
