There could be a hundred positive news stories and one negative one and the news channels would pick the negative one. I’ll try to post some positive stories on here to restore faith in humanity and help you find your smile!
I did this Walk For Hope last year and I’m doing it again to raise funds for Common Hope, check out my fundraising page or commonhope.org for more information on the organization, but they are helping Guatemalans get a quality education, something that they are succeeding at in a very very large way. I’m aiming for raising 2000.00 at a minimum this year, but I could use all the help I could get. Thank you VERY much ahead of time if you feel inclined to donate or else if you could share my page on your social media and with your friends/family, that would be very helpful as well!
Thanks for joining me as I attempt to change the world, one person at a time…
I have one dream that stands above the rest of them. It is to have an overflowing funeral with people I have helped in one way or another. I hope some have come to know Jesus from my life, but as my life is going right now, I’m assuming that won’t happen sadly. I want there to be a celebration after a short sadness that might come from me not being alive anymore. I used to suffer from depression and in reality, I feel like I still have some of that depression still in me, because I really don’t think I have that much time left on this Earth. I try to make every moment count, but I fail more times than I care to think about. There’s so much negativity that is spread throughout our world, I’m sure there’s positive things that happen, but of course you never hear about any of that. It’s such a sad, sad world we live in.
There are some songs that fire me up, some songs that make me feel like I have wings again and that I can conquer the world. I wonder if anyone else has songs like that in their lives, I’m sure you do. I so badly want to change the world, and yet I keep doing stupid things that prevent me from succeeding at this task. My selfishness continues to hinder me in creating a better world, a more vibrant world of hope and love. When I was in middle school there were a few people I would call “Earth Angels” because they seemed to have such a positive impact on me during some of my dark moments. I think there are “Earth Angels” everywhere, but we never take the time to point them out when we see them, point out those people who are truly changing the world for the better. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE if you are reading this, comment below/email me/tweet me or whatever stories about these type of people in your own life. I would love to add them in this blog and let their stories be known.
One Dream. If my life doesn’t make it to much longer, I hope others will continue my dream, continue to get up and dust themselves off to become a better version of who they are and create a better world. We have it within each of us to do amazing things, we just need to believe.
This world is going from bad to worse, the people have forgotten how to love, how to create peace and spread hope. Instead we find that hatred, greed, violence have grown more abundant and started overflowing. I really had hoped that we would come out of this pandemic closer, but the opposite has happened. May God bless us all…
I don’t write on this blog as much as I would like or as much as I maybe used to do. I want to remind you that you matter and that you are an awesome person. I hope that you are using your life to spread positive change instead of adding to all the negativity that surrounds us today. I feel like we are heading farther and farther into darkness instead of searching for the light. I’ve been cleaning my apartment lately and so hopefully more posts will come from my old writing notebooks and such. Keep your head held high and don’t forget that you can fly to the greatest of heights if you focus on the light…God bless…. just a quick note this time…
I say this to everyone who asks how I’m doing. Some say it’s fake and I’m a liar. In some respects, they are right, I’m not always living the dream. But that’s only if you look at it one way… is my dream to clean toilets and pick up trash from others and feel like I’ve wasted my life? Not really. But because of the work I chose, I get to accomplish some dreams. Personally, I get to have shelter, a bed to sleep in, food to eat, luxuries like tv/tablets/phones/etc., streaming services, this blog, etc. Other exciting things are the fact that I get to have a ministry that one of my part-time jobs feeds into and I get to give money to things that I care about and that are changing lives. I get to sponsor four kids who I hope will live better lives because the help I’m able to give them. That is the greatest dream. One of my biggest goals in life is to have an overflowing funeral with people that I have helped in one way or another. I am not a good person, I have my own demons I’m fighting day in and day out. I make mistakes, I do stupid things. I do hope that I can do some things though that will make a positive change in the world and I don’t want to just be wasting breathe and waste this life or taking up space in this world that someone better could take. I am grateful for what I have, but I am happiest when I get to spend my money on others. I am selfish though and find myself buying junk I really don’t need but get anyways. What’s your dream? Are you living it? How are you living it?
Someday maybe people will see me and it’ll point them to Christ. They’ll wonder how I can be so happy and find out that it’s because of my faith in God and they’ll want that as well…. It’s a dream, we’ll see at the end if it happened or not.
This is not the easiest thing to do, it is sometimes the hardest thing in the world to accomplish. But if you wake up every day and decide to have a great day, and find the positive in everything that comes up. If you work hard at creating a positive atmosphere, wherever you work, you will find fruit and a new life inside of that. This will create a life of happiness and you will truly live the dream. The greatest power of positivity, is the fact that it can spread like wildfire. One spark can change the course of the day, week, month, year forever. It’s been a blessing to be apart of this and to see it play out in my own life. When I walk into a room, I am greeted with a happiness and excitement, some people actually search me out for my joke of the day and positivity. We could choose to get angry, fight, and be negative…. or we can choose to fight the negativity in the world with positivity and show that the world can change for the better and the world can be changed forever to make it better for our future generations that we hand this world off too.
My entire life from birth to where I am now has been a blessing. God has had his hand guiding me step by step every single day. Obviously, there’s been a lot of those days that I push his hand aside and go my own way and quite honestly, things always seem to start going from worse to even worse when I do it. We are always fighting now, fighting the health officials who tell us to wear masks and stay 6 feet apart, fighting amongst each other because we don’t think we’re being treated right and think the worlds against us, not loving others, not helping others, not being kind to others…. The saddest thing about it all is that this is the world our children are growing up in, instead of showing them that we can overcome this, we are just spreading the same ashes that have been spread for years upon years. Try planting some seeds in the ashes, see if we can grow something and create something better for our future generations. The world has often said it doesn’t want God, but we need God more than ever. Honestly, look in the Bible for gratitude, love, peace, hope, kindness…. it’s filled with those types of lessons to teach us. Instead of trying to push God out of everything, why not just let Him do what He’s done best for the past thousand plus years and create a world filled with hope and love. Unclench that fist and open up your hand for a handshake or a high five, uncross your arms for a hug, open your eyes to the possibilities of what can be instead of always focusing on what has been. The only reason why the past isn’t behind us is because we keep digging it up and letting it repeat itself and show it’s ugly head. We have ALL been blessed abundantly, we still have breath in our lungs, food in our bellies and usually a place to find shelter. We have the freedom to speak what we want to speak, the freedom to be who we want to be, and the freedom to become something better than who we are today. Let’s not waste our lives with spitting anger, let’s use our lives to make the place a better place than when we entered it. Let’s create a masterpiece. May God give you strength and wisdom.
A number of years ago before I sponsored my first kid I signed up with Compassion International for their survival program. It was something I could do to help out and it wasn’t going to be to hard on my finances. Every so often they send me a photo of the month of a baby and mother who were helped out by the program and it warms my heart. It was created to help moms from the very beginning of the journey to deliver a healthy baby that would survive its first couple years and it begins helping the baby while its still in the womb. Thousands of babies have been born thanks to the wonderful work the survival program workers do.
