Beautiful heart shine brightly with a smile
I know my place
It’s a fantastic day to be freakishly awesome!!!
Are you with me?
The word enthusiastic popped into my head today. I gave some thought about how many of us attempt to break away from the mundane day to day by initiating change. You know? The thought of changing jobs, friends, relationships, etcetera. This poses a couple of issues
1. The devil you know is better than the devil you don’t know.
2. The grass is always a little greener on the other side of the fence. (Until we secure the property and stop maintaining it)
3. it’s likely our change will put us in a similar situation as we’re presently in.
This is what came to my mind next.
Let’s make everything we can better where we are by bringing positive continual effort to all of it!
My own life prompted some of this in part by recently acquiring new home owners insurance. My roof is 20 years old (in good condition) and many insurance companies won’t cover it with out a new roof.
I found one that would, but they want to perform a home inspection. I asked “What will they look for?” The lady responded basically “Pride in ownership.”
Those words have resonated with me ever since except louder and with more (you guessed it) enthusiasm
PRIDE IN OWNERSHIP!!!!!!!!
PrIdE iN oWnErShIp????
Pride In Ownership…
I looked around and getting ready for THE INSPECTION!!!!!!
I decided I needed to take a little more pride in my ownership. I fixed and straightened a multitude of things I have neglected.
It’s been a game changer!
The results are visible, everything looks great, the whole family has taken a little more pride in their area.
I feel and see the difference in everyone’s demeanor (spirit if you will).
Outside the home front, I’ve been applying those words to my state of being, my position at work and in the world.
I’M OWNING THAT TOO!
I’m going to strive to continually exude a high level of confidence (not cockiness) kindness, generosity and enthusiasm.
I’m going to apply the same level of these attributes to your life and everyone else’s. I’m excited! I see the infinite potential in you and I know what a difference even the smallest things make. (Butterfly effect)
Where there is sadness may we instill gladness, let’s put our smiles on and get into it!!!!
Show a genuine interest, make time for everyone you come in contact with. Let them know they are worth while. If someone provides you a service, you wouldn’t have it if they’re not there “RESPECT!” You’re important to them also, they are employed because of our needs.
Enthusiastic; Having or showing intense and eager enjoyment, interest, or approval
Mad respect for who you are an what you do!
Please recognize you’re significant,

Moonbeams obscured by the midnight flight of a raven
I watch silently in horror of the coming day
The simple comfort of loneliness surrounds me with its sweet melancholy touch
I look into the window of my mind, and the room is empty
Hope has ended
I long for the resurrection of my soul, that I may be whole once more
The dawn comes soon yet I find myself frightened
Deaths touch is not welcomed
I am warmed by the breath of the woman who loves me
The children smile that I might live
The new day is here
I move forward, like walking in a snowdrifts cold
I cannot stop, for I would die
I walk for the warmth of love
To give the strength of giants from the frail weakness of a wilted flower
Child of light coming out of darkness
Living in a world with out end
The new day must begin
And spread goodness
Another day is upon us! Wait that’s not quite right? Another multitude of opportunities is upon us!
The opportunity to learn from days gone by and the challenges of today.
To be grateful in all circumstances even through adversity. I will strive to see the value in all that I do today. I’m going to hit the ground running, like a man on a mission. At my work days summation, I will look at my efforts and appreciate what I accomplished. God forbidding any problems that may arise, I will handle them one at a time and give them no more of my time, thought, and energy they require. If they are beyond my means of rectification, I will accept them and move on. Anyone who comes to me with a problem this day, I will keep in my mind that it is THEIR PROBLEM. I will be conscious not to empathize to the point of hindering my emotional well being and kick ass great mood. (Not to be self centered or cold, only to protect my wellness from bearing the weight of the world on my shoulders.) I will lift up and attempt to motivate people who are down. I will limit my fellowship with anyone content in their misery. Ever conscious that it is easier to pull someone down than it is to lift them up. I will stand tall, understand that we’re human and not place unreasonable expectations on myself or others!
This day is ours, let’s see what we can do with it!
Our world is sometimes limited. Keep in mind despite that you have unlimited potential!
Have a kick ass great day! Jason
