Tuesday Afternoon Thoughts on “Moving Forward” 03/13/12

My my my where did the week, let alone the weekend go. It seemed as though the week seemed to breeze by as I swear that it was just last Monday a day or so ago.  I guess time flies when you are having fun, so I am probably having the time of my life right now.  I haven’t slept a lot the several nights, so I decided to put my time to use and put my thoughts on paper.

Although the weekend went by fast, I do think I accomplished a lot. I built a few new relationships and had some great conversations visiting with my brother and mother over the last couple of days.

Seems like no matter where I go, I find myself engaged in conversations that are related to a lot of my thoughts these days. I assume that reason is that I have a lot of experiences to share on the topic. Maybe there are takeaways or others or even that I can learn a little something from their situation.

Have you ever been in a situation where you felt it was difficult to move forward?  Does it feel like you have gone through life and become stuck in a moment?  Position? Lifestyle? Environment? Relationship?

Interestingly enough, I have been asking myself these questions quite a bit lately.  The more I talk and share with others, the easier it is for me to see all the lessons that are present in every moment that we live in.  The difficulty of anything is that most people hold onto the moments too long and often get the lesson later on instead of in the moment. How different would things be if we were able to move forward in “Real Time” and not at a later time?  I think we can, but it takes really being in tune with ourselves to focused to not allow a moment, people, or situation to keep us from moving forward.

If you look at the world, there are several certainties that will always exist no matter what happens.  Time does not standstill and is always moving forward so it is in our best interests to keep our moments in real time.  In addition to time, our thoughts will always exist and we need to be carrying the right thoughts forward.  Our thoughts are very infectious that’s why the phrase, “Positive Thoughts Breed Positive Actions,” exists.

I could sit here and tell myself that I am always moving forward, never looking back, or never getting stuck in a moment, but I would be lying to myself. What I can confidently say is that I have found a way to move forward anytime that I get stuck in anything/moment.  If you haven’t figured it out by now, sharing my thoughts is very therapeutic for me.  I am not going to say it is always easy, but I do know that it is possible.

So I challenge you to figure out what that thing is that gives you that push or that little bit of encouragement when you are stuck in a moment, negative thoughts, or a situation.  No matter what it is, it doesn’t matter as long as it works for you.

I bet that if I told 100 people that there was something amazing waiting for them if they just opened the door, 40% of them still wouldn’t be confident enough to walk through it.  What about you, would you move forward or just wait until someone else opened the door?

There isn’t a thing in life that we encounter that isn’t infectious. Remember that it all starts in the mind and you can do amazing things if you allow them to happen.  Adopt the #PositiveMovementsForward lifestyle and watch how things start to change for you and everyone around you.

Take a moment today to send positive vibes out through your actions, conversation, and your smile.  It is not hard to live life and be amazing.   Is there anything holding you back right now? People? Relationships? Job?  Are you ready to move forward?    Do you need any help moving forward?  So now its up to you in order to move forward to make it happen.  If you are ready, let’s go!!!!!!

About thejrchronicles

What can I say about me? I want to be very careful and not come off as conceited or anything, but I guess this is one of those times where I have to toot my own horn. OH BOY, where do I start. I guess the easiest way to put this in perspective is to say my experiences in life have allowed me to become very cultured up to this point and prepared me for the future. I was born in Mississippi, but had the opportunity to spend 12 years of my life living in Germany. For those of you that don't know, that was an interesting experience. If ya wanna know more about that one, just ask. Believe you me, I got stories!! Now, I guess I am grown and working in corporate america! Boy is that fun! I am enjoying what and do and look forward to being an influential leader in the business world someday! At least that's my plan! Being around people that genuinely care about me. When you go through a few rough times in your life, you immediately learn who your real friends are. Sometimes it takes a few rough spots in your life to happen before you truly know who you can count on. I enjoy being around people that enjoy being around me.
