Never Give Up

On Yourself!

Love this quote.

If you take away a person’s struggle,

you take away their victory.

It’s like pulling a caterpillar

out of it’s cocoon before it’s time.

It will never develop into a butterfly. ~Cameron C. Taylor

See the Greater Picture

Take in the Details Too!

With all the craziness going on lately in this world it got me thinking.

Open Minded/Close Minded

Are you more open minded or closed minded when it comes to the craziness and chaos? Do you see the greater picture or focus in on the details? For me I think it depends on the situation and just how crazy and chaotic it is in order to wrap my head around it. Sometimes I feel like sticking my fingers in my ears and saying “I cannot hear you!”.

Do you become desensitized or more aware in your surroundings? For me some things I just have become desensitized to while other things just cause me to be more aware. The one thing that really scares the bleep out of me is that mass shootings seem to be the norm lately and that is a tragedy. There are times when the craziness gets me motivated to take action, but then I falter when not knowing what action I should take.

Explore/Shut the Door

Are you more open to explore or just shut the door and call it a day? I feel a real sense some days of people taking care of themselves and then becoming a community when tragedy strikes. That is just sad because a sense of community should result from good too. There is a real sense of distrust among people and it has become a one on one for survival lately.

Do you look for the potential and/or inspiration among the craziness and chaos? Do you look for ways to make a difference? If so, how do you make a difference. I would love to know!

Please note these are my opinions and ramblings that I share with you. I have tried to leave the questions open-ended, so people feel free to share in order to have a healthy discussion. Please refrain from conflict and confrontation among the discussions unless it is a healthy reaction that adds to the discussion. Thank you!

Here’s a Smile, Please Share It & Spread It to Others! Thank you!
