Haters gonna hate…

I have this going through my head today!  Some people just hate others.  WHY!?!

No matter how much you are loved in this life, I promise you, there will be someone, somewhere hating on you.  They may be just doing it in their brain or actually voicing it to another individual.  It is a given.  They might not even know you.  Maybe they just don’t like your name or see a picture of you that allows them to proclaim a false judgement about you.  (WE’VE ALL DONE THAT BEFORE!)

You CANNOT make everyone happy.  You can try and do whatever you can for others, support causes and lift up those who are down, show people love and strive to put your love into action all you want, but there will ALWAYS be that person or persons who still can’t seem to love you back.  They look passed all the lengths you go to in order to make their life or world a better place.  They just can’t see it.  Who knows why they can’t?  They have their reasons.  They might just like to hate others.  Maybe even hate everything!  (that is so weird to me)  I just want to shake people like that.  That would probably just make them hate me more.  (…and call the authorities ..Haha!)

I used to allow this kind of stuff to bother me.  It weighed on my mind and made me feel like I did something wrong.  I would try to think up ways I could MAKE them like me just a little bit.  I might have even dreamed that perhaps one day they would come over to the LOVE SIDE and really join in the HAPPY CLAWSON DANCE.  (like I really have one of those…haha)

I don’t let that stuff bother me anymore.  Of course, I still hope they choose love over hate, but I don’t allow their choice to effect my choice.  They may be very annoyed at the fact that I’m happy.  Maybe that is why they hate me?  Do you realize how ridiculous THAT sounds?  I finally figured it out!

I can choose to do my happy dance or smile continuously OR look on the bright side of things even amidst the haters.

That word “haters” seems so extreme, but if it’s not love, what is it?

Go spread your hate…

I STILL CHOOSE AND WILL ALWAYS CHOOSE THE OPPOSITE.

Cuz the haters gonna hate hate hate hate hate…

I’m gonna shake shake shake shake shake…

(Watch this awesome video below for a laugh!  2:44 is my favorite second!)

I CHOOSE.

This has been a lovely day. 

Well, in MOST parts. I had happy day wishes and neat gifts, a good breakfast, great church service, Papacitas, sunshine, rain, wind, good music, smiles… The happiness list is long. 

How can one event ruin a day? It can’t. I must continue to remind myself that IT CANNOT do that!  The devil wants it to, but I refuse to allow it. 

I won’t go into the ugliness of this day. Face it, if you look hard enough, you are sure to find some ugliness in every day. I choose NOT to do that. 

I CHOOSE!

I will grab all the happiness of this day and run, arms wide open, through a field of sunshine and sprinkles!!! 

I know, that sounds a bit crazy, but if that is what I have to imagine in order to give GOD all the glory for this day and rip any satisfaction the devil may think he deserves from it… 

Then THAT is what I shall do!!!

BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT…

I CHOOSE. 

Oh Happy Day to All!

And…

Happy Mother’s Day to all you Moms!

I choose to be happy.

There are times in life where sadness overwhelms you.

Things happen… life is a bit chaotic or even uncertain.

Uncertainty seems to make us all uneasy and a bit crazy.  Ok, a lot crazy.

THINK ABOUT IT THOUGH: Life changes all the time.  Why aren’t we ready for it?  We don’t properly prepare ourselves for it.  Do we even know how?  Who knows?  I can’t answer those questions.  They might as well be statements.

I do know, that instead of crying for days or griping about the situation, I CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY.  Is it easy?  Not really.  At times, it’s so hard it makes the heart hurt, but still, I CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY.   I might get sad and even cry some, but I still gotta choose to be happy.  It might take talking myself into or setting my mind on other things like sunshine and sprinkles.  It ESPECIALLY takes PRAYING A TON.

Whatever tactic needs to be taken in order to do it…I CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY.

No matter the situation or circumstance…

I CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY.

The GOOD, the bad and the uuuuuggggly…

WARNING: SOAP BOX TIME!  

We are who we are because we choose to be.  NO MATTER WHAT… You CHOOSE to be the way you are–it is ALL UP TO YOU.

We start our lives like a blank slate.  We arrive ready to be influenced, molded and shaped.  Then, things happen to us.  We are well taken care of, or not.  We are surrounded with good friends or bad ones or maybe mediocre ones.  We have great parents, grandparents, uncles and aunts or we don’t really.  Some of us have circumstances in our lives that are just crazy, chaotic and evil.  We have people that abuse us and put us down.  We have people who use us or leave us out on purpose.  These things happen.  I am acknowledging it all.  I could make lists upon lists of things that happen to us–good, bad and ugly.

We all have  influences, circumstances, people and times.  We all have these good, bad and ugly times.  A lot of times, though,  we look at others’ lives and think they have it great and we don’t, but really, we don’t know their life.  We don’t know what happens in their homes and we don’t know what happens in their minds.  We don’t know their hearts.  We are only responsible for our own hearts.  We are not put here to compare ourselves to others.  We own our story, not others’.

Back to my point—the person you are, no matter what has happened to you in your life, is ALL UP TO YOU.

Don’t blame others for having a better life.  Don’t hurt those around you just because others have hurt you.   It’s important that we don’t get beat down by playing the victim in our lives.  I know we all have different stories and we have all been “victims” of something, but to stay labeled as a victim only allows whoever or whatever victimized us to continue to win daily.

EXAMPLE: If I were to CHOOSE to be an alcoholic–that would not be because my dad was an alcoholic.  I would CHOOSE that lifestyle.  I could not blame that on an alcoholic father or even some type of hereditary gene which says I’m more likely to be an alcoholic.  Everyone has something they may be more likely to be, BUT WHEN IT COMES RIGHT DOWN TO IT–IT IS YOUR CHOICE.

People use excuses all the time.  The media gives people excuses all the time.  Sometimes (and I’m not saying all the time, because I know there are certain situations that would be exceptions–but I believe they are very rare) people use excuses because they are too lazy to stand up and blame themselves.   They are too unwilling to get up and choose what is right.   They are so lacking of inner motivation that they blame it on someone else like their parents or even the government.  Geez.

We all (yes, EVERY ONE OF US) need to stop being- idle – indolent – sluggish – slothful – slack – AND step up and take responsibility for: who we are, where we are and what we have become.  I believe that once that happens, our lives, our society and our world will be a better place to live.

Once we have done that, we can be in a better position to help those around us.  It starts with YOU–yes YOU. (and me, of course) Allow the good, the bad AND the ugly to mold you, influence you and shape you into A RESPONSIBLE, A MORE ACCOUNTABLE AND UPSTANDING YOU.  (not a continuous blaming victim who can’t look past anything that has ever happened…come on—move on!!!)
