Today’s World can throw anyone over the edge if we allow this to happen.

Expectations and comparisons are two of the biggest pains of today’s world. Each day someone is faced with comparison to someone who we think has it all put together. While others are put under pressure of reaching other people expectations which can be unrealistic or become unbearable for many.

It makes many wonder why depression, violence and hate is so strongly existence in our world. Many have become frustrated with there day to day lives they cannot stop to think of another feelings. Many cannot even stop to help a neighbor or worse yet a stranger because we are so caught up in our lives. Trying to meet today’s world expectations and comparing ourselves to almost everyone who seems to have it all put together. When in reality non of us have it figured out because our world changes daily and we have to change our outlook at our lives.

We have to change in small ways that can build a better world. Changes start with each one of us, first accepting we all have different life paths. This will help us stop comparing ourselves to one another. Second small change can be setting our own expectations and letting others know what we can contribute to change situations around us.

Speak up and let your voice be heard even if it stirs up a room. In the end you will be heard for your views and set a tone in any situation that can allow you to have some control.

One of my hopes for 2019 is for peace, happiness and love within our world. Many of us are surrounded by so much hate we have lost ourselves. So many have become so drawn out by our lives we can no longer smile, enjoy a meal with family or find our inner child within us anymore. We have become so caught up in wars, politics and negativity. No wonder so many suffer with anxiety and depression rates are so high around the world.

One accident changed my life when I was at rock bottom. My world was surrounded by trying to get back to my routine not knowing this routine was killing me slowly. Change is never easy and starting over was my biggest fear. But when your biggest fear watches you straight in the face sometimes it can be a blessing in disguise for the best. We are given choices in life and I always believe what we choose determines our life path and future. Growth takes trust that the universe will work everything out for the best no matter how difficult it may seem at the present moment. Each moment is a blessing to grow, love and build a deep awareness of self and truly learn to appreciate each moment in this life. This year was a tough one,it built me and broke me. In the end I learned some hard lessons, had some tough changes and faced some of my fears.  Now I will be able to say to anyone who may feel they lost a part themselves  or cannot deal with changes to embrace the moments and know there is  always an end and sometimes we have to face these difficult moments to truly appreciate life in the present moment.
