Goodness

In Uncategorized on January 8, 2013 at 3:02 pm

what does that word mean?  Why is it important, to have goodness inside of you?  These are two important questions that only you can answer for yourself really.  But i will discuss me a little so you may better understand for yourself.

     Well if you don’t know me yet you will in a minute, I have many bumps and bruises,replaced acl,plate and six screws, couple sets of stitches as well as mental fatigue from a life lived.  My heart has been broken and I have broken a few hearts as well…

     But through it all I choose to move forward and be better than yesterday, as long as that is my goal and I choose to act on it then I can live with Goodness in my heart.  I have chosen to accept people for who they are not what I could hope for them to be.  Sure I make mistakes, take wrong turns but you can always double back or take a road that leads back to the one you were on.  There are no excuses in life just hurdles to be overcome and all it take is time and patience to figure it out.

  How about a story to give you an example, I was 4 and my family had moved to NY City and my mom was late for an interview as a dental assistant, so she ran inside to let them know she was there but she left my little sister Alison and I in the car while she did.  But I was a little pyro and she was a smoker which is not a good combination if she leaves her cigarette case in the car with the matches in it.  so I needed something to pass the time so iI grabbed the case and took out the matches, struck one love the ignition of the flame and the smell of the sulfur as well.  But it burned my finger so i dropped the match on the VW Bug polyester carpet under the front passenger seat, but as I watched it hit the carpet it looked like it went out so i went on with playing with my sister in her car seat but less than a few minutes later I smelled something burning and looked under the seat to find a blazing inferno so I looked at Alison said we need to get out of the car.  I got her out of her seat,put her over my shoulder and out of the car we went onto the sidewalk and just waited for Mom to come out.

  Ya I was 4 and sometimes there is goodness cast upon us whether we like it or not or we can learn that goodness is a choice that we can provide ourselves and the world with by making a conscious effort to change our attitude and our direction forward.  It is totally up to you now isn’t it.  don’t point blame, find the strength inside yourself to make the changes you want to see in the world in yourself!Image
