“The first thing you notice about a person is their shoes”

A strange title for a blog post I know you are thinking that.

It came to me while I was watching the GREAT Movie

 

Kinky Boots

 

 

You know what?

It’s funny but I don’t notice shoes… ever.

Is that weird?

When it was said in the movie I thought on this and was worried that I don’t notice shoes .. was I being rude or not paying enough attention?

Then I went further and went into my lack of noticing the ceiling the only time I notice the ceiling is when company is coming and then I look up.

I started to think that I really was not paying attention to my life if I never looked up or down what was I doing?

I notice out in front.

I do see where my feet are going … I see to the sides and out in front.
Being a country girl it is wise to always be looking out in front searching for the perils of nature such as snakes, ants and spiders or even sticks and rabbit holes.

 

the famous blue tongue

 

So where do you look? Have you ever stopped and thought about it?

Maybe it says something about us where we look in everyday life. I don’t aim too high just a few steps in front , cautious in every one but never standing still looking at where I am or looking behind at where I have been.

This may be a good thing … I don’t think it’s a bad thing …. Not going backwards is good not standing still also good but only seeing a step or two in front??

Need to look a bit further in front and high into the sky a bit more.

Another quote from the movie was …

“Maybe you shouldn’t judge it in brick Charlie, Maybe it’s what you inspire in others”

This was telling Charlie that he shouldn’t think of how much material things he was leaving as a legacy but of the inspiration he was leaving on all his staff in his business.

I liked this because it is true we are all searching for these $$$ amounts to make us happy when leaving a lasting legacy in our peers and our children is a much better thing to be remembered for.

 

 

If you haven’t seen this movie it is a great inspirational movie with a good dash of comedy it is not completely on the mark compared to the actual true story but I think if it makes you laugh and gives you a great message then it is a worthy movie to watch.

Do you know any other GREAT movies that are inspiring and are entertaining as well??

Would love to find them out comment below and I will do a blog post later on with the list of everyone’s great movies as well as my list of favorites.

How to change your outlook when your standing still

Today’s oracle card was

Mists of Change

Description of sunlit oracle card :

your sunlit memory today is asking  you to consider the MIST OF CHANGE each day the sun rises and sets but each day is unique with time comes change it is up to you if it is to be a big change or small  you will never know the beauty of your life if you don’t get out there and live it from every different angle and along other avenues you can’t get beautiful dappled light in your life unless you surrender to a new change of view.  Time to find something new in your life and pursue it.

 

This card is telling us that no matter where we are in life there is always room to move and change.

You can always change you view even when your stuck in the one place.

 

Try this little exercise …

Go stand out in your back yard or in a park in your local area.

Once your feet are stable in a spot don’t move them.

Now look around how many different angles can you see the view from.

Crouch down …. Look up … twist to see the view behind …

Do you see all the different views?

Are they not all beautiful but different in their own way even though you are standing in the same spot.

When you feel like you are stuck and not moving in your life there is always a way to see a different view.

You don’t have to move mountains or across the country or change jobs to change the way you look at life and the joy and excitement you get out of life.

The other amazing thing is if you took that exercise and got the whole family to do it or a group of friends and got them all to write down or tell everyone what views they saw everyone would have different answers because everyone is unique and sees the world from their own view to start with.

So what way are you viewing the world?

Is there room for some change in your view?

Do you catch yourself thinking the negative about everything you see and hear?

When you see a beautiful beach scene do you think “paradise” or do you think “hot sandy and sharks” ?

It’s all in your attitude to your view and it is so easy to change that view.

The first step is to be aware of how your internal voice is talking to you.

Is it being a good positive influence on your life or is it always negative.

This can change your life just by catching yourself and saying something positive about every situation .

The second step is to actually physically change your view the sun will follow you wherever you go and it will still be the same sun but it will give you a different light in a different spot just like in today’s oracle card that dappled light was only possible by trial and error and moving my view to the right spot to get that light right.

You don’t have to move far or make major changes to have a BIG change in your life.

Try it today … would love to know about your experiences and what you saw when you tried the exercise.
