Morning Edition for 5/18/2020 - A Motivational New Day

By
Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509

 

"If you want your life, you have to go out and get it." Those were the words of a mother I saw this morning on a motivational YouTube. Her adult son lost his mouth, his teeth, and all of his limbs due to a different type of virus. For more than two years he went through daily medical procedures. 

 

The young man has been struggling and challenged beyond imagination. Today, he has prosthetics, a wife, and a son. He gets around on a bicycle designed for him. Like many people, I have been wary about getting out of the house and to resume the things I have always enjoyed doing. Before the sun rose today, I was out the door walking on the trails. At 6:28 a.m. I captured the sunrise. It was as if a giant egg yolk dropped out of the sky to give me exactly what I needed - my life back. If a man without limbs can do it. So can I. So can you.

 

As the sun rose higher, I began to see more clearly. In the big scheme of life, there has to be more than a lonesome duck. We are social creatures. Man is not born to be isolated. People derive their worldly views socially in very much the same way each one derives their individual roles and identity. 

 

Like an egg in the eye when you first see the sun, every single emotion and self-interpretation of what's going on around you, your emotions, determination, ideas, and thoughts are predefined by family, education, society, and the culture in which you live. By the same token, so is your cognitive thinking and/or approach to the universe that surrounds you. We are not a one-size fits all world. Social control is stressful. Everything we are learning today is new. Be wary of facts that are frequently based on fraudulent claims. Research and conclusions take time.  Communication can be manipulated through various means of transmission. Creation is beautiful. Conforming to fear, ridicule, punishment, gossip, and lies hardly allows anyone to breathe normally and grow. No matter what, keep going like a duck that paddles fast beneath the surface, but remains graceful and calm above water. ---Patricia Feager

You said a mouthful here, Patricia: Social control is stressful.  Americans are beginning to realize this and are beginning to rebel. One one big reason for the rebellion stems from the "one size fits all" approach to social control we've seen the past several months.

New challenges present new opportunities to learn something new!  I have tried to look at recent social control as an organized focus on the greater good.  In other words, I scratch your back and you scratch mine.  This concept is harder for some than others.

Thank you, marti garaughty - Marketing without fear and keeping consumers and client needs at the forefront gives consumer confidence. Backing off to the isolation theory will not accomplish anything.

Thank you for understanding and for the feature.

Happy Monday, Patricia. I really enjoyed reading your thoughts today, and am glad you got out and about to enjoy the early morning hours, my favorite time of day. I love watching night turn into day, and your sunrise photo is stunning.

Will Hamm - When times get tough, consumer confidence is something a strong business owner shouldn't stop when it comes to marketing and sales. Keeping heads above water helps get you to the finish line while paddling below the surface during stormy times.

Lottie Kendall - We had an overabundance of rain this past weekend - about six inches came down on Saturday and it rained all day on Friday. Yesterday turned sunny by afternoon but the ground was saturated. Going for a walk this morning the air smelled clean and fresh. By the time I arrived at the pond, light fog was evaporating off the pond and then the sun came out. I was in awe! I used my cell phone and took several photos and each one gave me that beautiful glow around the sun. It was as if I was getting a signal - a ray of hope! Thanks for your wonderful comment!!!

Myrl Jeffcoat - I am used to being alone and planning in advance for things I need. It's the people cooped up with children, and both parents having to work from home with kids having to be online to finish school and pets having to go ouside and bark that seems to be the most stressful is what I'm hearing/hearing from my sphere. I see it and hear it on Zoom business meetings too.

Patricia we can't let fear control us.  It is time to start making our way back to the way things were.  The longer it takes us to start, the longer it will take to get there.  In my opinion there is nothing more to be achieved by keeping things locked down.

I am so glad you found that inspirational video, and then went on your walk. Why? Because then we got to read your motivational thoughts. We ARE social beings and need interaction. With each other, with nature, sunrises, ducks and more. 

I hope you enjoy your Tuesday!

It always saddens me to hear about people struggling but it is also very motivational to see them overcome.

Debra Leisek - I thought about sharing the video but it's one of those stories that had a happier ending than the beginning of how his entire body changed so rapidly. It was too graphic and I just couldn't share it. But the positive message was very, very strong!

I hope you're doing great!
