How far would you go to love yourself, to follow your heart and intuition, to seek your dreams, to develop yourself inside out, to take the time to get to know who you really are, how much of an investment do you think your worth investing in?
How often do we go above and beyond our limits to help others and our family then forget to take care of our selves or think that our well being is something that can wait. How many more moments are we going to put off with excuses as to why we cannot do everything we ever imagined ourselves to. We cannot afford to nurture any more regrets and what if's, today is the day and this moment is exactly what you have been waiting for in order to make that first move. ~Will "Story" Rivera

Why is it we feel so compelled to prove ourselves right all the time, we allow the slightest difference in belief or thought pattern to turn our reality upside down. There is no need to argue over anything in this world. Everyone we come across and learn about is our teacher in some way shape or form. When we allow ourselves to be open to understand that our truth, points and beliefs are not the only one's with illuminating effects, we in turn encourage unity and oneness. Once we start to believe that we have the "truth" or we are "right" we are done growing spiritually and we become stagnate in our own limited reality.
It all starts out with a perspective, how we choose to see the world through our eye’s, completely unique depending on the experiences on our journey, that is where perception comes in, this is very tricky, our bare eye’s can be deceiving, what we interpret is happening in the world around us is merely based on our belief, and our belief is only an opinion derived from the experiences we have had. Beliefs are literally prejudiced by one’s own point of view which is exactly why the need to stay open and continue listening and searching for “truths” is so important to our spiritual growth. Everyone in this world has their own system of living and seeing things, understanding and relating, no two paths are the only way, until we learn to question our own conclusions, or at least allow the thoughts process of others about our conclusion in, we will stay stuck in our own truths so to speak. Since we evolve and life around us ever evolving so too will our truths and way of life, think of it this way, we don’t stop believing or just drop the belief that has been working toward our highest good for so long, rather we learn how to expand our understanding to encompass more and gain more wisdom from doing so.
Not everything and everyone we meet will be agreeable, I am not saying to follow everything you hear, the point is to reach a point of awareness enough to be open and honest to understanding the other person, understanding what has happened in their life to have led them to live and think the way they do, if we can make it that far in our awareness we will learn to see life through their eye’s, and recognize why they make the choices they have, without judgment, simply understanding and respecting that their way of life is their way, equally as important as our way, no one way has more validity than the other; each one plays a significant role on this earth to both teach and learn from. ~Will "Story" Rivera
A hug can go a long way, you have no idea how much comfort and light you can bring to a soul just by sharing an embrace, be genuine, look deeply into another’s eye’s, look past the words, past the hurt, past the pride, and really feel what is happening to them, the pain they are feeling, the loss of self worth, the battle they are experiencing just trying to find love for themselves. Take the time to read between the lines, every heart in this world has a story to tell us, we just have to choose to listen. Heart Wide Open ~Will "Story" Rivera
Most people complain about their bills. They complain about the struggle and how expensive life is. How they never have any money left to enjoy life. I know because I used to be one of those people.
I've learned to say "Thank You" for having the money to pay my bills even if it leaves me with nothing left. I know what it is like to feel the stress and worry of not having what I need. I know what it feels like to have that sick to your stomach feeling when the phone rings and its the landlord, to not know how your going to get to work because the car has no gas and you have no bus money. I know what it is like to open the fridge door three to four times in hopes of finding something to eat but realizing it is empty.
The attitude of genuine gratitude always makes way for opportunities and roads to open that allow for more blessings to enter. So these days when I get the opportunity to pay a bill, I see it as just that, an opportunity - one that I do not take for granted. Now when I get money in and I know I can pay something on time, I get excited, I say thank you, shoot, when I can pay bill I want to high five the world! ~Will "Story" Rivera
You may now want to wake up this morning, it may be early, you may not be feeling well, you may be tired from a long day of work, you may be comfortable, you may hate your daily routine, regardless - find the will to master your emotions and learn to say thank you in those moments.
Thank you for waking up to another day. Thank you for having the money to pay that bill (even if was the last of it). Thank you that you have family family, friends and pets who are safe and well. Thank you for the warmth, water, clothes and a choice to change your circumstances if you do not like what you see.
Just say Thank you. There are too many moments we take for granted. Too many choices go not chosen. So many others in this world who are experiencing far worse and do not have the ease of opportunity like you do. ~Will "Story" Rivera
