Finding Worth in the Middle of the Earth: April 1st – #Easter

On this day I am reminded not only of the sacrifice of our Savior but of the meaning that it holds. So many times in today’s society we recognize that the ability to love and be selfless is lost among us. However, this spiritual leader gave his life so that we all may have the opportunity to live a life free of sin and pain. Unfortunately, achieving this in our lives have been a difficult task due to our own issues. The work that we must be willing to put in is the reflection upon ourselves and the spiritual work involved in that. This week I am working on something different in my approach and in the way I pray and praise.

There are some things in my life that I must be willing to sacrifice in order to achieve and reach what God has for me. Calvary is the symbol of sacrifice and the unconditional love of Christ, meant to represent the love that Jesus had for us. Although this post is crafted towards those in Christian leaning belief systems, the message to take from this is that we all need to be more giving and willing to sacrifice things for the greater good. What are we willing to do for each other? Are we willing to do what is necessary so that not only our needs are met but those of the ones we love? Today I ask that you not only reflect on the sacrifice of Christ but his resurrection. Just like in our own lives we must be willing to sacrifice our old self and be prepared for the resurrection of our spiritual being.

Luke 24

Fly off the Mountain

Feel the breeze blowing under your arms, imagine giving into it.

You don’t have to stay where you are, you are only limited by the cement that you pour on your feet.

Instead of allowing that to prevent you from taking that step, maybe choose to fly.

Maybe choose you, for once in your life.

Lift the weights that hold down your arms, that hold down your mind.

Maybe choose you, maybe fly off the mountain.

 

Peace and Love,

Every day presents new opportunities and I’m ready…

Stuck between what I want and what I need but never for the reasons one might think. In life we all are afforded some sort of opportunity, some are good and some are bad but at the end of the day, it’s a chance to do something completely different. The question is not the nature of the opportunity but whether or not we are open to the idea of completely changing something in our lives. There is fear that exists with the uncertainty of any opportunity, hell, the uncertainty that the day could provide. But what is life, if we don’t take chances if we don’t choose to be uncomfortable?

Don’t get me wrong the goal is to be comfortable right, in your finances, in your home, in your job but what if we stopped seeking comfort and started seeking more. More in our finances, more in our homes, and more in our career but we have to have a plan of attack. Don’t allow for anything to prevent you from making a difference in your life. You must evaluate the opportunity and see if it will work for you where you are in your life today. All of us have many factors that we must consider when making these sort of decisions whether family, geographical location, benefits, etc. Again, it’s important to note that all opportunities are not good ones but it’s definitely worth researching any new opportunity before acting on it. Every day presents new opportunities and I’m ready to consider them at least for now.

Peace and Love,

God… I just wonder when it will all make sense. I know that in time things will unfold as they should, all the pieces will fall into place as they say but when. This week has been filled with the normal ups and downs that are associated with working a 45-50 hour work week, trying to build a Lifestyle online presence and following, and still keep my career goals at the forefront of my mind. You know the normal stuff. What I have to keep reminding myself is that anything I do or attempt to accomplish is within my power. If I am only able to put 30% towards it that day, at least I am trying.

We all place limitations and pressure on ourselves, the pressure to be our best and our greatest without understanding that things won’t come together overnight. “Rome wasn’t built in a day” has never rung so true. I have health goals, career goals, relationship goals, spiritual goals, goal goals that I want to reach and what I’m learning is that it is all in God’s timing and my willingness to make it happen.  As I enter into this new week I hope to keep the same attitude in all that I face this week. I hope that you do the same.

Peace and Love,

Rocky Bridges

Can We Make it Across?

Tumbling stones slamming against the trail that we attempt travel.

Journeying through this mountain together understanding that there will be some obstacles in our path.

We come across a bridge that tests our strength and balance.

Can we make it across? What is it that stops us from trying?

Is it fear?

Fear of knowing that if we try we won’t succeed or fear that we will.

You have to try because we can’t keep playing around on these rocky bridges.

Peace and Love

Falling For You

Falling for you was easy but falling wasn’t the plan.

A Plan to fly and float failed.

A realization that I couldn’t fly or float if I wasn’t willing to fall.

You have shown me love that works for me.

Even in the hard times, I recognize the importance of a late night phone call.

What’s better than being able to fly and fall at the same time?

You being in my arms and I in yours recalling how life was before we had it all.

Falling for you feels like fountains flooding with love.

Love flowing through and in between mountain peaks.

Lead me to your fountain so that my love can flood you.

Falling for you, falling fast, falling forever.

Happy Valentine’s Day!! Spend time with the one(s) you adore. ❤️😉

Peace and Love

…sharing the load makes the plight a little easier.

When life throws you unexpected turns and crisis, how do you cope? You have conversations about these things before and discuss how you would react in certain situations but you never know until you know. You cannot expect the unexpected, it is not something that you can truly plan for because life doesn’t grant you the peace of familiarity.  It’s important to focus on trying to find a solution but sometimes the solution is never the right one. You don’t agree with others when making this decision and sometimes you do but we all struggle with the uncertainties of the decisions we’ve made, that one thing is king. There is always the opportunity to be better than the choices we’ve made but what can we do when all we have left is our word. We must stick by these choices we make because dependability and our values in something are what makes us human. I’ve been having to deal with a lot of decisions lately as you can imagine with the entire point of this post some uncomfortable and some that I was not ready for but what I must do is stand by them.

As I’ve traveled on this road of life, I’ve been faced with many tragedies and decisions and they never seem easy or manageable. However, sharing the load makes the plight a little easier. All I can do is reach out to God for the answers and pray that he will have mercy on me even when I don’t give myself the same room for error. If I am to be all that I aspire, I have to choose to make some hard decisions and pray that it will all be worth it in the end. Have you been dealing with a tough decision lately, comment below? Additional tips and help are on the way as I make a choice to do something new in my life, my blog, my lifestyle.

Now that all the ” Happy New Years” are out of the way, I can finally get back to maintaining focus on my goals…

Here I am, it’s almost the end of a new month of the new year and I feel something just not exactly clear on what. Now that all the “Happy New Years” are out of the way, I can finally get back to maintaining focus on my goals. Although I’m not exactly where I want to be in my career or in the career I want exactly, I am grateful to have a career at all. Wow, where does the time go? I’m sitting here thinking of all of the exciting things I want to do, not just this year but in general. With all these goals and things I want to achieve, I don’t know where to place my thoughts. I’m figuring out an organizational tool that works for me but now it’s about making the time to actually get those things completed. January has been … an interesting month, nothing crazy and nothing bad… just interesting.

This month has given me a few smiles and jolts of energy but it’s up to me to bring that positivity back in my life. Work trips and turnover in my team, you know the normal stuff has me searching for ways on how to deal with these unwanted obstacles in my life. However, I believe that I’ve found a solution to it. I’m learning how to appreciate it and to deal with it because it could be worse and it has been worse before. Some days I feel … I feel… peace because I believe I deserve it. I have to become better at maintaining it, I have to achieve it even when life tries and present me with nothing but chaos. Health, mastery of where I am now, peace with myself and my significant other, and the push to constantly strive for more are continuing goals going forward.

 

Let me know how you’ve been so far this month. Comment, like, and share!

 

Peace and Love,

It’s arrived an amazingly spiritual day that is filled with joy and love for your fellow man…

It’s arrived an amazingly spiritual day that is filled with joy and love for your fellow man. Each year on Christmas I make sure that I thank God for his blessings past, present and future. Are you ready as I am to start this new journey, a new year, a new chapter? I am preparing each day because I know that the clarity won’t come over night.

Faithfully pushing towards what God has for me. I believe that it shall manifest itself in my life. Today gives me the understanding of what it truly means to be grateful. For I am not obsessed with the gifts I received or upset but instead thankful that someone thought of me. This time of year should inspire you to not just text and connect with friends and family this day but throughout the year.

Peace and love,

Michael Anthony
