Blast From The Past – Be The Change

I mentioned previously in a post: I’m in a really good place at the moment and I feel there is a lot of good heading my way. A lot of things have changed and will continue to change and I’m so ready for it.

While change is not always easy, it’s necessary. Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it feels easy but most of the time it’s also scary. It needs a little push, a deep breath, maybe you need to close your eyes and “jump”. But once the first step is made things start falling into place. I like to share a post from a while back with you sharing some thoughts about change and how you can be the change…

Honestly, I am not sure what kind of change my blog would make in your world, in our world. I guess if I can make you feel better because of a post of mine, then I am super happy.

Writing this blog has given me personally so much and has made a big change in my world already. I feel like I achieve something and I share this achievement with you.

I want to let you know, that we all struggle, that we all have our ups and downs. I decided not to share my downs with you. Not because I don’t want to share it with you or because I think you are not close enough or not worth it. Simply because I believe in a positive attitude. Yes, I ramble. My “down moments” though will be all mine. As I want to move forward and want to stay positive and I know you have your downs. So why put more weight out there instead of trying to lift it in staying positive?

If it helps you, if it makes a change for you, if it takes only as much as a single gram off your shoulder, then I have achieved a lot. And by doing so, I have definitely made my day better.

I believe that you are in charge of your life, that you can decide if you want to live a happy life or not. There are tons of things we can not influence really, but what we can always control is our take on it. And my take on a difficult situation is “Fuck this shit and move on!”

All the issues we struggle with, the things that pull us down, can only pull us down as long as we let it happen. Look at it, acknowledge it and then use it to move on, to make the best out of it and make the next step.

Sometimes it is harder, sometimes it is easier. I am not saying it is always a smooth ride. Hell no! I for sure know well enough that it is not. But we have power to decide if we want to make it harder on us or easier.

Well, that is what I believe. So if I have provoked a thought or two with this, then I probably already have made a little change in someone’s world. And that thought just made me smile a little bit brighter 😉

Have a beautiful (rest of this) day everyone!

  1. I’m doing some changes of my own! I’m going back to work in the near future. It will be a large adjustment but I am looking forward to it.

  2. I’m all for the positives, too! Except, I do share some “downs” of parenting, my woes with the boys, if you will, because I also like to show that’s it’s not all sunshine and rainbows around here because parenting isn’t easy. Love your blog!!

    • You are right. Parenting is hard. And more often than I like I wonder if I’m doing it right. And then your kids shine and you know you’ve done it right. Parenting is a tough job! But I think you guys are doing a great job. Seriously! You can be proud.


      • 🙂 🙂 I’ve read that some people get depressed because their life “isn’t as good as others” when they’re comparing social media. So I like to point out that sometimes it sucks and that’s okay. Doesn’t mean we’re doing it wrong. Just means we’ve hit a speed bump. I think I sense a post brewing… thanks!
