Have a little faith

I’ve been absent for a few days because life has just been one chaotic mess. If you don’t know, my husband and I are selling all of our things, leaving our jobs, friends and the city of Austin that we love dearly, to move to Hawaii to open a Krav Maga/CrossFit studio. Long story short¬† – Krav Maga and CrossFit are our passion and we can’t wait to change the world through through fitness and self-defense! www.alohakravmaga.com

ANYWAY….

I have been absent because moving to an island in the middle of no where, trying to get a loan to start a business and figuring out how to ship our FIVE dogs over there, along with working my full time job still, has been very time consuming. And to top all of that – the Universe has been pushing me to my limits. Not a single thing has gone right in the last week. Nothing can just work the way its supposed to, it seems like everyone I interact with is incompetent in their jobs or someone didn’t pay attention to details, which leaves me completely screwed.

Needless to say, I am exhausted and have broken down many times over the last few days – all the while questioning why the universe has to make everything so freaking difficult! Why can’t anything work the way I want it to.

When I take a moment to step back and look at how things are working out –¬† I realize that the power of the mind really does work, I am still achieving what I have put out to the Universe, just not the way I thought I would.

The only time we are dissapointed in someone or something is when they do not meet our expectations.

If we accept people for who they are, and not who we want them to be, we would not have to go through the initial phase of dissapointment, only to later find out – they were perfect just the way they are – if we could have only accepted them that way in the first place.

And another thing…

Everything really does happen for a reason. Think back to a time something went wrong and you wondered, why you?

My boyfriend cheated on me two years ago, I was devastated. How could anyone treat someone that way?? But it also happened to be the first time I was single since I was 13 and I also just happened to be going on a cruise the following week. The same cruise that I met my husband on….

My point is, I have wasted a lot of energy being upset with the Universe this week (and this life), just to find out that it is working with me, not against me.

Keep your eyes on the prize, do everything with good intentions and hold tight to your faith, the Universe is listening…

I’d rather be poor

Poor is a relative term.

It’s ironic really, what society has turned into.

Have you ever been to a low income community. Everyone is always outside. Adults are listening to music, barbecuing and watching the kids play at the park. Kids are outside with other kids and bikes and dogs – not inside glued to their flat screens and ps3s.

Then you go to the middle and upper class neighborhoods. Occasionally you’ll find someone outside washing their car, but no community BBQs, no kids riding their bikes. Maybe an occasional house mom running with the kids in the stroller.

These aren’t stereotypes people – this is the reality of the world we live in, don’t believe me? Go check out these neighborhoods for yourself. I dare you, go above and beyond just looking around. Trying stopping by and joining either one of those communities – assuming you can find anyone in the upper class neighborhoods to talk to.

Where do you think you’ll be more
welcome?

I live in a middle class neighborhood and I’ve seen maybe 3 kids out on their bikes since I moved here 6 months ago. Do I want to be social and get to know my neighbors? Absolutely! We are meant to help each other survive, to learn, to grow together – yet we hide from each other.

When did society take this turn for the worst? And how do we get back to our true nature of love and selflessness?

My only suggestion is one step at a time. One day at a time. One smile at a time. One hug at a time.

You could even start with something as simple as “Hello”
