Looking at Your Beliefs

What beliefs are limiting you today?

Have you noticed that the beliefs that you cling to and carry around inside determine what your experience in life is going to be?

Over  the past 10 years, I started to look at my core beliefs and have found that my programming had left me with a raft of limiting beliefs that were determining just what the outcomes of many of my experiences were going to be.

I have been carrying around a lot of things that are silly, self-defeating, demeaning and just plain wrong.  It was under these conditions that I determined to see if I couldn’t change them a bit, because as I saw it until they were different nothing was going to change.

Moving Toward the Positive

 

everything you do matters
All of your actions and thoughts determine your experience.

Looking back on my life, it has become clear that a vast array of things exist that I was never taught to think about. Clearly, there were lessons that needed to be taught that I missed out on.  As a young man, I lived life with no real consideration for the impact of my actions or thoughts on the big picture. I had no Idea of the value they could provide or the influence that they might have in my own unique existence. I have often wished that someone would have pulled me aside when I was 15 and told me that everything I did really mattered, for good and bad. Yet I probably wouldn’t have listened anyway, but it would have been good to have the option.

What I Would Do For You

Would you break the law to save a loved one?

by Jonathan Hilton   Day 27

3417346270_thumbs_would_you_break_the_law_to_save_a_loved_one_xlargeAre there any depths that most people wouldn’t go to save a loved one in most cases?  Yet this may not be the best philosophy  to follow in many cases, but we do.

 That is the answer that I am going to give, that I would, but  I am not sure that in all cases it is the best thing to do, because the repercussions may ultimately be a negative for the person you love.  Sometimes loving someone is allowing them to learn the hard way.

I thought, “This looks like trouble.” When I saw this tag game going around. I want to participate and yet I have this daily writing prompt to take care of because I am committed. When I was tagged by the illustrious DJMatticus I had no choice to respond. I don’t have time for two posts today, what am I going to do.   (Visit Matticus Kingdom HERE)

Are You Truly Living

What is the difference between being alive and truly living?

Are you truly living?

by Jonathan Hilton

All people are going to answer this question differently depending on where they are in their life.  To me being alive is a fact of nature, and enjoying life and living for a purpose is truly living.  But how do you enjoy life?

Other people will answer this very differently.    It only takes a few visits to any number of blogs to experience the wide variety of philosophies and beliefs that exist.

The Forty one Year Fight

Mike Martin and I have been friends for forty one years.  There are not many people in the

41 year fight
Even though Mike is always wrong, he still argues with me all the time. He is so stubborn.

world outside of your family that you have known your entire life, and still call them your friend. I am fortunate to have had a friend for most of my life, who is cantankerous, stubborn and is often not right about anything! He would tell you the same thing about me.  We work together right now and that leads to many conflicts about virtually every subject.  When I started this new Picture Project I was in between two of these conflicts, so it only made sense that the first picture should be a symbol of the fights we have on most days.  These “fights” are more philosophical battles, where we do not agree on much of anything.  But when the chips are down, I know I can count on him and he on me.
