Staying Positive

1

Sometimes forces in the world can be overwhelming. We find ourselves second guessing ourselves, doubting our abilities and losing faith in our beliefs. In those trying moments, it is important to remain positive, and to stay positive.

Here’s a few things you can do to help stay positive.

1. MEDITATION

Meditate for 10-15 minutes

Meditation is amazing. It helps to create positive energy in your world, and teaches you how to reinforce the balance you’ve had in your life. 10-15 minutes of meditation a day can have lasting effects on your self-esteem and spirituality.

2. RUNNING

Run 3 times a week

Running helps the mind release endorphins that help to counter stress. Going for a run a few times a week is a great way to reinforce positivity, and is also very healthy for the body.

3. SMILE

Smile!

Smile more. It seems simple, because it is simple. Regardless of the circumstances, smile. It takes very little effort to smile, and the benefit is instant gratification.

4. BE KIND

Be kind

Being kind is a great way to reinforce positive vibes in your life. Giving to the needy, volunteering at a shelter or donating clothes to Goodwill are all great ways to be kind. Even holding the door open for someone, as a courtesy, will go a long way.

5. THINK POSITIVE

Think positive

Think positive, and put a barrier around your negative thoughts. When you find yourself feeling helpless, train your mind to think about positive places, positive people, and overall positive things. Your mind has a lot of information, and not all of it is bad. Pull out the good stuff, and keep doing it.

6. GET PROPER AMOUNT OF SLEEP

Get 7 to 8 hours of sleeo

Getting the proper amount of sleep can be very important. Some people find themselves overworked, and they eventually burn out. Reevaluate your sleep schedule, and make sure that you get enough daily sleep. After a few days, you’ll find yourself much more positive.

7. TAKE A BREAK FROM SOCIAL MEDIA

Take a break and do something else.

It is easy to get swallowed into to social media, and sometimes that can have very negative effects. Take a break. Put down your cellphone, close your laptop and go for a walk. Go to bookstore and check out some new novels. Go try a new entree at your favorite restaurant. There are countless things to do, and social media isn’t going anywhere.

They are coming. Your best days are right ahead. Don’t lose hope, don’t let your faith in yourself dwindle. You are capable of really great, and amazing things.

Yes, you can!

You can do whatever you put yourind to. You are a winner, and even when you fail, just know that everyone fails. Falling short of your goals does not make you any less of a person. Failing can be a humbling experience. In those moments, we learn to conquer adversity and we regain the spirit to triumph.

Don’t quit on yourself! Continue to dream!

You are an amazing human being, capable of insurmountable feats. As you approach your best days, know that they will be plentiful. Enjoy life while you are on your way there. Exercise. Learn. Love. Teach and encourage others to do the same. Instill in friends and family that they are winners, just like you. Create a culture of champions. Lead the way. Take charge, and don’t be afraid of risk.

Be yourself, enjoy your life and live to the fullest. Your best days are right ahead.

The Party of Abraham Lincoln

0

For what it is worth, and I am sure it is worth more than words can summarize, The Grand Old Party, formally known as The Republican Party, is truly the party of Abraham Lincoln. He was elected in 1860, and a quick one phrase summary of his Presidency would say with grand resolute, that he helped to defeat the Confederates, and he paved the ultimate pathway to free the slaves.

Always and forever will the Grand Old Party be the party of Abraham Lincoln.

I myself have been a Democrat most of my life. I am, because I believe my family members are, and more so because of my upbringing, it always felt as though that party was the one that had the greater influence on me and my surrounding society. I am an African-American, and I grew up in an urban environment, so like most in those environments, I registered to vote as a Democrat. Luckily enough I even got to witness, the first time around, an actual black man being elected President of The United States of America.

It was monolithic moment, and a true testament to just how far this great nation has come. But regardless of how important of a moment it was, it still doesn’t change what I said. The Republican Party, The Grand Old Party, is still the party of Abraham Lincoln. What Lincoln did for this country, is perhaps as important as any great deed ever done by any man in this nation, and yes, that ought to include George Washington, and all of the founding fathers.

The Emancipation Proclamation effectively acted as legislation that denounced slavery, opening the gateway for many enslaved Africans to gain their citizenship, and fight against the Confederates, and although this act could in no way remove the hundreds of years of injustice The USA and other nations had inflicted upon those slaves, it did essentially help out every African in the long run.

Thanks to the courage of a man like Abraham Lincoln, my ancestors and those I stand amongst now have more of what we call, freedom.

I say all of this, as a reminder to myself, and to any readers that I may have, that regardless of what side of the political aisle you may stand on, don’t let our currently leadership force you into believing one party stands supreme over the other. Regardless of the media backlash against Donald Trump, our current President, I do feel deeply within me that he not only stands for good, but for the safety, aid and security of all citizens in the USA, and not just the wealthy. I do not believe that he has a chance as becoming as great a man as Abraham Lincoln, for the emancipation proclamation did as much justice as writing the country into existence, but that does not mean we are all to write him off for his own personal troubles and gaffes. The man has a purpose, and is to serve the nation. Don’t let his ego get the best of you, for I am sure there are perhaps enormous characters flaws in every former President.

We ought to hold him to the same standard as Lincoln, and in this moment, this is where I will begin to do so. I’ll say again, I doubt that he can do anything for society as great as what Lincoln did, but he has a way of saying he is amongst the best. Remember, always remember that The Grand Old Party is the party of Abraham Lincoln.

Earlier in the week, The FBI submitted their investigation of Donald Trump and his associates. The investigation has been the talking point, and primary focus of many news agencies.

President Trump, despite several of his colleagues and campaign associates facing legal troubles, continues to call the overall investigation a witch hunt.

Now, news agencies and The American People, and President Trump, await the release of information in Robert Mueller’s investigative actions against the President.

A Long Time Ago

0

A long time ago I had the pleasure of serving with very great men. Not a day goes by where I can’t remove the memories of our training and field experiences. Often times, the memories can be a bit too much to handle, but again, not a day goes by where I don’t miss it.

Sometimes I feel like it wasn’t even real. I mean, I never went to war. Was it a dream?

It wasn’t a dream. Thanks to training, we were in my mind The Best.

I still feel like we had the best gun, despite various levels of competition. Some memories are vague, but boy was competition fun!

The weapon we all worked so hard to maintain and fire, Blitzkrieg, was, and I am sure will remain, the funnest and most exciting thing I have ever had the honor to work with in my entire life.

It was game changing, it was fun, invigorating, and all around the manliest thing I may ever do. I have left behind memories, and grit. I still have some, but I left most of it there. Well after leaving, to this day and beyond, I’ll never forget being in the accompaniment of such great men, and such a fantastic weapon system.
