You Deserve a Rest

You deserve a rest from the world.

While the Coronavirus, the Covid-19, or whatever people want to call it are ramping up your anxiety, do yourself a favor and just turn off the world for a little bit.

Don’t just put your phone down and take a nap or go to bed, turn that phone off if that anxiety is getting to you. Your mind needs the rest and by turning it off your mind will know it can slow down. It won’t be listening for a notification, it won’t wonder if a “ding” is coming because your phone is off.

Trust me, the world will still be here a few hours from now.

Be Colorful

Don't Be Afraid to Be Colorful

On a wonderful visit to The Big Island, Hawaii, we took a trip to Punaluʻu Beach, also known as “The Black Sand Beach.”

It was a weird place, especially for me who is used to normal beaches and normal sand. There were turtles, which was cool, but the black sand was really the draw, especially if you have never seen a beach of black sand.

The oddest thing, especially as I started taking pictures, was most everything beach related, i.e, water and beach, appeared to be in black and white. While taking a picture of the waves coming in there was this little girl, off in the distance, in a red shirt and white pants.

The contract of her colorfullness to the black and whiteness of the beach was wonderful.

In a world that can get bland and boring, go ahead and add some color to make the world a better place.

Look Curious and Goofy

It's Okay to Look Curious and Goofy at the Same Time!

People can make the strangest of faces at times. So can the animals. When this nubian goat was looking my way I didn’t know if it was just looking goofy or was curious what I was doing.

Don’t worry if you might look goofy when you are curious, it’s better to be curious and goofy than not curious at all. Then you are just goofy.

Curved Path

Sometimes Your Path Can Curve

Sometimes the path of your life is shady, you may not always see the best place to step. Other times the path of your life may curve. It’s not always bad to follow the curve, maybe even go with the flow for a while and see where it takes you.

Shady Path

Sometimes your path is shady...

The path of your life can easily change. At times you may find yourself going through the woods and it might be scary.

Embrace the shade and enjoy the protection the trees give you. Eventually you will find the forest ends and life opens up again.

Your Imagination

Don't leave your imagination in the clouds.

On a plane one day I looked out the window as I am wont to do. I noticed this cloud formation that looked like a dinosaur. I found it cool using my imagination to see a dinosaur.

Unfortunately a lot of us use our imagination, but just leave the thoughts up in the clouds instead of using them. Let your imagination fly, but don’t always leave the thoughts in the clouds – act on them to make your life awesome!

Be Patient

Be patient, the dead of winter leads to the growth of spring.

There is a time when we get the winter doldrums. It’s fine, it’s normal, and it’s important to remember that your winter will be coming to an end soon. That is when spring arrives and life seems new again.

Be patient, spring will be here soon enough!
