It’s Good Friday and I love it! We are having our family get together tomorrow. Everyone will be coming to my in-laws house for a great time and some fantastic eats. Thank you AT (my mother-in-law) for doing all of this. She has to clean, cook, entertain and play with the grandkids. None of this she minds, never complains, but I’m not sure she will ever realize how much we all appreciate her effort and how much we all look forward to being together. Oh yes, and thank you ET (father-in-law) for doing all the outdoor work. Can’t wait.
On this great day, I wanted to take a moment to talk about being trusting your instinct. Not everyone is true, sometimes people are phoney and out for their own gain. I really appreciate people, companies, etc that want to help others. I, in doing this blog want to help others. I am not getting anything out of this other than the kind comments that you all write me either to my personal e-mail or write on this site. Not everything I say will work for everyone, nor do I have the same beliefs of everyone else. Point is, I’m only doing it b/c I care. I’m bringing this up b/c I’ve come across so many kind, helpful people while doing this blog. Others have sent me their blogs, I read them and learn a lot.
On the other hand, I’ve also noticed some that are only out there for the wrong reasons. Please go in to every situation, fad, etc w/ an open mind, but trust your gut. There are some out there that don’t believe in anything they are promoting. If you think it is a product, belief, diet, political view, whatever that you feel would better your life, give it a try. Just do some research and always trust your own instinct.
I hope this doesn’t come off as negative or directed at anyone. I’ve only received positive notes from this end, but I just see so much out there that plays on our emotions. So many of us, myself included, are always looking for that easy way or that miracle that will change our situations and make them all better. Sometimes this just is not the case. I feel we have to work on ourselves to change our situations. Like I’ve stated, do something nice for someone, buy their coffee, call or e-mail someone you haven’t contacted in a while. Eat healthy, try to use natural cleaning substances and cosmetics. Re-connect spiritually and try making time just for yourself. Whether it’s yoga, meditaion, cooking, do something for you. Working on cleaning yourself on the inside, outside and mentally will help you the most in the end.
Trust yourself and follow your own instinct. You need to decide who is out there that will help you go in the direction you want to. Don’t just fall for the next fad. Don’t just believe everything you hear. Treat people kindly and w/ respect and you will generally only get the same back in return. Get to know others and then decide if they are someone you want to get to know more. Don’t judge without giving a chance. Some may fool you. They can be great people or they can be deceiving and only out for their own gain. Start paying attention to your inner voice.
Went to my first auction today (can you pick out the real estate agents?–stand out, eh?) and it was pretty interesting. Can you imagine being able to talk that fast for so long. We have the farm listed for sale that the auction was at, so we went to see what it was like and to be there to answer any questions re: the listing. The Seller was the auctioneer and he had to do this from 9am-5pm. Over 600 people. Well, to a long day mixed w/ autction, showings, listings, hockey and we are going out for the night!
