When Bad Shit Happens

In the game of life there will good days and days that seem to never end. Some call this the dark night of the soul. This is not because, you did anything wrong. Sometimes it just happens. We are in control of your own lives to a point. Our jobs, the economy and other people’s decisions are things that we have no control over.

The best we can do is manage what we do have control over. There is no way that we can prepare for all unseen events. We can only do what we have control over. This is not to say that you have to be passive in your life. By participating in your own life, living doing things that you enjoy. It allows you  to take back your personal power.

Our Govt & economy seem to be off the rails sometimes with the insane decisions that are being made in congress. One has to wonder what drugs they’re taking or if they’re even of sound mind. Like sending jobs overseas so companies can save money. Reality, the money saved is actually going to the share holders as dividends that the company didn’t actually make that quarter. While the politicians are so worried about these companies. It actually reduces the amount the company pays in taxes and with those employees being outsourced.

Those displaced employees are no longer able to contribute to the tax revenue. This is the best way to self destruct a Govt. This unfortunately might not be a bad thing. Without a meddling govt and rogue politicians. It might actually force a lot of people to grow up to take on responsibility for their own lives and rebuild their own personal dreams.

Because sometimes things just happen. It’s good to own our personal power and take responsibility for what is really ours. The rest of the garbage that happens, we can only wade through it the best we can.

Valentine’s Day

Time to reflect, time to check in and see if your life is the way you want it. If not, don’t panic! You call the shots and you can make changes. This is the perfect day to plan your fantasy day! If your single it’s all about you!!

If you’re in a relationship, it’s a nice time to do romantic or spontaneous things for each other on that day! Each person can help plan what they want to do on that day or not. Think as it as a journey or destination.

Every person has a different idea of what’s romantic or fun! You get to make the rules and have lots of fun on this day. Entertainment unfortunately needs to be planned out sometimes depending on what that means to you. If you weren’t able to do it this year there is always next year.

Plays, concerts, art museums are some fun ideas for some.  Watching that favorite movie and planning a delicious meal are other ways to indulge. What will be your next destination?

Theater is always interesting, especially if it’s a classic where it is imitating the realities of current life. Music and art can be entertainment of the senses.

Whatever you do, make sure to take some time for yourself!

Snow Days

It would be an understatement to say that we’ve had our share of crazy weather. The weather here in Minnesota has had more than it’s share of arctic weather when it’s warmer in Alaska then here that’s definitely saying something. The snow fall has been so crazy that it has made travel a true adventure.

One of the greatest things this weather has been best for is writing and reading really great books. It also makes you take a long needed rest. The snow days have increased more each year. I don’t remember getting this many even when I was in high school. I almost feel like we’re going through a mini ice age.

The nice things about these times is that allows you to take time for projects that you’ve been putting off.
