How do you deal with life’s problems?

Hi friends! As I constantly say, we only can totally control our inner mind. The problem is we can’t control our outer happenings. So there is so many things that can happen in our day to make us angry. Just when we decided to be happy we lose our car keys and spill coffee on our shirt. Now we are feeling like we are definitely in for a bad day!

anger-794699_640

But, the Fortune of the news is that you can manipulate any situation you want. There’s always two sides to a coin. The good side and the bad. When you find yourself in a ” bad” situation, calm down and see if can find good in the situation. Yes, I can’t find my cars keys, but perhaps I’m being protected from a potential car accident or something else God doesn’t want me to run into. Also, it’s a good reminder to find a particular place to keep your keys for next time. Yes, you spilled coffee on your shirt, but you can use this as an opportunity to inspire you to keep spare shirts in your bag or car. Or maybe it was time to get a new shirt anyway. Now you find out that your girlfriend wants to breakup. It’s unfortunate, but were you really compatible? Doesn’t this make room for someone who will appreciate you? Or, a loved one finally passed away from sickness. Were they really suffering? Perhaps it’s better to finally give them peace and no pain. My examples can go on forever. Your reactions to life is your Territory . Are you going to let life’s situations rule you, or are you going to rule it? I suggest you grab life by the horns because life will always throw curve balls. Why? Well, not because your life is cruel and unfair itself. It’s because we live on a huge playground called planet earth and it’s full of other’s and their realities. We can’t always escape the influences of other’s or the problems they can inflict on us and our life, but we can definitely decide how we’re going to react and handle outside influences. If you don’t try and look at the up side of your problems, it will overtake you.

You can choose how you interpret any situation. You can choose to become angry or tolerant.

As Long as We Got Each Other Lyrics by Steve Dorff and John Bettis

Show me that smile again. (Show me that smile)
Don’t waste another minute on your cryin’.
We’re nowhere near the end (nowhere near)
The best is ready to begin.

As long as we got each other
We got the world spinnin right in our hands.
Baby, rain or shine, all the time
We got each other, sharin’ the laughter and love.

We’re Not Gonna Take It Lyrics/Twisted Sister

Oh We’re Not Gonna Take It
no, We Ain’t Gonna Take It
oh We’re Not Gonna Take It Anymore

we’ve Got The Right To Choose And
there Ain’t No Way We’ll Lose It

you Don’t Know Us, You Don’t Belong

oh We’re Not Gonna Take It

oh We’re Not Gonna Take It Anymore

oh You’re So Condescending
your Gall Is Never Ending
we Don’t Want Nothin’, Not A Thing From You
your Life Is Trite And Jaded
boring And Confiscated
if That’s Your Best, Your Best Won’t Do

oh…………………
oh…………………
we’re Right/yeah
we’re Free/yeah
we’ll Fight/yeah
you’ll See/yeah

Symbiosis

This daily prompt is weird for me, hopefully I used it right!😆

The memory of you is Symbiosis , you drive me to psychosis, I’m under hypnosis. My mind you rule, I become your footstool, I’m surely a fool. Why can’t you go away, you insist you stay, you hunt me day by day. You’ve now become part of me, never will you flee, inside me you will be. I keep you in my mind, I can’t leave you behind, your love mine all mine. Without your love I will die, I look up into the sky, I wish I could fly. Now God’s angel you are, shine like a star, with me you left a scar. Please get out of my head, I wish I was dead, only if I left instead. You feed off my mind to live, and my life I will continue to give. We co-exist now as one, life for us has begun, this feeling I will no longer shun.

Meaningless

Why does life feel so Meaningless , living life so defenseless, life is so senseless. I’m living an endless dream, I search for someone supreme, I look unto the sun that gleam. Does my life have a purpose, it feels like a circus, I continuously run a circuit. God please tell me where you are, maybe you hide in the stars, you can’t be that far! I guess I live to die, angel wings to you I will fly, to this life I say goodbye. I hope you exist, this meaningless life I won’t miss, heaven has to be bliss. To be covered in love, from angels above, this is what I behove.

Song Challenge Day 2 and 3

Hi friends! Shame on me. I’m late with my challenge, so I’m giving two days worth. But, here it goes😊.

Where Everybody Knows Your Name Lyrics by Gary Portnoy and Judy Hart Angelo

Making your way in the world today takes everything you’ve got.
Taking a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot.

Wouldn’t you like to get away?

Sometimes you want to go

Where everybody knows your name,
and they’re always glad you came.
You wanna be where you can see,
our troubles are all the same
You wanna be where everybody knows
Your name.

CROSBY, STILLS, NASH & YOUNG 

“Our House”

I’ll light the fire, you place the flowers in the vase that you bought today.
Staring at the fire for hours and hours while I listen to you
Play your love songs all night long for me, only for me.Come to me now and rest your head for just five minutes, everything is good.
Such a cozy room,
The windows are illuminated by the evening sunshine through them,
Fiery gems for you, only for you.Our house is a very, very, very fine house with two cats in the yard,
Life used to be so hard,
Now everything is easy ’cause of you and our—

What Does your Inner World/ Mind Consist Of ?

Hi friends! I wanted to give you a basic understanding of our minds and the path to happiness. I see our minds as billions of individual unique universes coming together to co-create on this outer reality called earth. Like I said in a previous post, this outer reality mostly consist of things that other people thought about and manifested into our outer reality. Our life experience comes from within. We have never experienced life from outside of our own body. We only see life from the window of our own eyes. That’s why we have our own perspectives, beliefs, and points of view. A perfect example of unique perspectives is looking at a picture of clouds.

clouds-1439324_640

From my point of view I can see a fluffy dog in the clouds. But if you look at the same picture, you’ll probably say where the heck did you see that at?! It’s just
Ordinary clouds. But, that’s my unique perspective. Or perhaps what you see is a face, and I’m left saying, where? This analogy goes with the fact that everything within us is about our personal perspective and experience. No two minds is exactly alike. We all consist of our own personal reality. My question to you is, how do you perceive things in your inner reality? Are you constantly perceiving things in an negative light? Do you never try to perceive things in a good way? Have you created your own inner hell? If so, you have to stop looking outside of yourself for your problems. Because let’s face it, at the end of the day, all you have is yourself. No matter how many people that love and care about us, we have to answer to ourselves first.We only have the medicine for our Symptom . That’s why it doesn’t matter how many people say you should be happy, your inner voice has the last say. When you wake up in the morning, and go to sleep at night, your voice (thoughts) is the first and last one to speak to you. And you’re either allowing it to say positive or negative things to you. If someone was able to crawl inside of your head, what would your inner world consist of? Who would be the greeter at the door?

zombie-2054181_640

Is that who would be the greeter? A monster who is ready to devour anyone who is willing to come in?

stairs-735995_640

Is there a whole half a universe in your head that consist of hell? Is there a gate that consist of a heaven, but you won’t allow yourself to enter? Do you often visit your inner hell at night through dreams/ nightmares? If someone was to walk in ,would there be loud voices saying the following:

  • You’re ugly!
  • You’re fat!
  • Nobody loves you!
  • You’re disgusting!
  • Nobody should love you!
  • You’re dum and stupid!
  • You never get anything right!
  • You’ll always be poor!
  • You’ll never get well!
  • You deserve to be sick!
  • You did something to deserve this!

But, there’s this gentle quiet voice coming from that far away gate saying you’re loved , that’s not true, don’t say that, and you’re beautiful? Whoever enters your head would probably be overwhelmed and frightened of the dark side of you and run to the beautiful gate for refuge! Did you know that none of this negative stuff is true? This is only your own twisted perception of your life.  This perception can’t be changed by anybody but you. Understand that there isn’t a line of people in your outer reality that is sharing your sad perception. The only people who share in your perception is those who are also tormented, or those that you convinced  that it’s true.

Are you going to finally run home to the light, or will you allow the monsters/ yourself to keep you chained in the dark?

Let the world around us
Just fall apart
Baby, we can make it
If we’re heart to heart

And we can build this dream together
Standing strong forever
Nothing’s gonna stop us now

And if this world runs out of lovers
We’ll still have each other
Nothing’s gonna stop us
Nothing’s gonna stop us

This song is one of my favorites! Very inspirational for me😊.
