Blessing not a Curse

Your tasks today, your job, your chores...they are a blessing not a curse.

No matter how you look at it, the truth is, today, this hour, this moment is where you make a difference. You might not see it but you bring value to all that you do.

Don't think of today as a burden or a chore, but rather open yourself up to the possibility of what could be. Allow yourself to be open to grow and to learn. We will never stop learning until we choose to. It is an amazing cycle, when you learn you grow and as you grow you learn.

Imagine if everything were easy, there would be no sense of accomplishment. I mentioned in an earlier post, if that were true, your life would seem pointless. "A person shows who they are by what they do with what they have been given" Working through each challange and keeping your spirits high is the challange. Anyone can quit...that is the truely easy road.

Whatever you are doing on this day, be thankful that you have breath and means to do it, even if it seems mundane or trivial. Focus on doing the absolute best job you can do, whatever it may be, be it a carpenter, a mechanic, a writer, or a mother.

So brush yourself off, check your attitude, leave your pride at the door and get on with your amazing day. Never forget that you bring value to the table and that what you do is meaningful and necessary. Stop playing the victim and step into the light of being and be.

Until next time...

Feels like a throat punch to my heart

So, I thought today was going to be just another Sunday of lounging around and netflixing.  I don't think I have ever been so wrong in my life.  To start with, Facebook reminded me of my memories.  I happened to click on a friends link and decided to follow another link to my very first girlfriends sisters page.  Its random how I got there, but I blame facebook.

To my shock, I saw that her sister had passed on the 22nd of November.  I was shocked because I knew that she wasn't that old.  I reached out to an old mutual acquaintance and found out it was pretty sudden and unexpected.  That had me in some kinda mood.  Because of that, I began to text and email friends and check in and make sure then were okay.

I got a text message from a close colleague I used to work with at a previous job.

Beck: "whats shakin CB"
Me: "Not much just wanted to say hello.  Had a wake up call today.  Found out first girlfriends sister just passed away.  So sad...she was young"

Just a friendly update on me :-)

Hey everyone

Just wanted to give an update. You may remember that I said I was going to be coming back to California, well it is official.  I am heading down May 1. I will most likely take the train and stop in Napa to visit my cousin Stephen Bordes at his winery for a day or two.  From there, I will catch a train to San diego.

I am currently looking for work and open to any positions that may be available, I just ask that you don't hold it against me because I have a masters degree.  I have seen many companies shy away from hiring me because I have a Masters Degree.  I am honestly looking to get off my feet and find a base of operation. My home is California and I know that now.  I am native and the air, soil and water are in my bones.

I am looking to establish which means I will need to find a place to live (that I pay for monthly), maybe even get a car (down the road) for now I know that I will have to use the bus and I am okay with that. I am nervous as hell about this move …

Movie Review: The Family Fang- 4.5 out of 5 stars

Narrator:  Imagine your dead. Feel yourself go numb. Start with your fingers, move to your hands, your wrists, right on up to your elbows. Everything is dead. If we can imagine our own death, but still manage to come back to life, then it proves we can survive, anything.

Baxter Fang: Don't be afraid. Own the moment. If you're in control then the chaos will happen around you and not to you.

This was one of the best and possibly overlooked movies of 2015 (which is why I am just now reviewing it in 2016) in my humbled opinion.  Jason Bateman is not only an incredible actor, but an extremely talented director.  I was never a fan of arrested development (probably because I never watched it).  However, after seeing Bad Words and now The Family Fang, I have a whole new respect for Jason Bateman
