Roz Rambles: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow!

The quotes I chose or write are inspired by life in general, lots of times my own.  I never consider myself to be unique in my feelings, so I figure… “If I am feeling a certain way, so are others, they just might not be as vocal about it!”

YESTERDAY

When I grew up we kept our feelings to ourselves.  Everything was hidden behind closed doors which really made things worse as we truly did feel alone ~ or worse yet, thought “this was our lot in life!”

TODAY

In today’s age, most are willing to share the good with the bad and others of us are feeling that we “really were not unique” in how we were either encouraged, discouraged or abused growing up.  Verbal abuse is abuse too and carries worse scars.

TOMORROW

It is NEVER too late to start new!  Tomorrow is as close as the next second when you DECIDE!

FAILURE

Tony Robbins says:  “If you learned from your mistakes you did NOT fail!” True failure is giving up!  Being flexible and refocusing is NOT giving up!

SUCCESS

I say:   “Challenges are life’s stepping stones to success. ~Roz Fruchtman”

ENCOURAGEMENT

It is said: “Give What You Need and It Will Come Back to You Many Times Over”  ~ not necessarily from the person you give to! No matter what… it feels good to give and I hope that someone will find encouragement and hope through my sharing!  On the other hand it feels good to receive and know that someone cares and we ARE NOT alone!

A THOUGHT

No matter what… “We are ALL people first!”  As we’ve seen many times over…  those with the most money are not always the happiest and too many have gone to early graves because of their unhappiness!

Roz,
I truly love your blog entry today. Well, I am a fan of your consistently positive outlook on life anyway.
“True failure is giving up!” is a statement that too many of us do not see this way.
Some people get discouraged the moment they make a mistake and believe that the fact of having failed is the end to that matter.
I have been there numerous times myself throughout my life, when the mistake seemed big or the matter that was affected by it had a very special value in my eyes that I could not bear to have messed up.
Many other times and more so later in life, I find myself trying to brush off the fact of failure and work on the solution and improvement.
Thank you for your “ramble”.
Mo

Dearest Mo:

THANK YOU so much… for your continued support, but to be quite honest which is the EXACT purpose of this blog ~ I work really hard at being positive most of the time. I always say: “no one knows what goes on behind closed doors!”

I try and find things that will inspire me and ward off the negative and frustrating feelings because they do no good and only cripple us to achieve the goals WE want for ourselves and our purpose in life. We have to help and like ourselves before we can help and like others!

Right now I am dealing with some issues that have been unsettling for me. They are real, and probably I am “what iff-ing” for nothing, but it is the first time I am going through this and it’s the kind of thing where “it IS in someone else’s hands!” So you have to “hurry up and wait!”

I took some action on Thursday and now I’ve done what I can for this part and now I have to wait. MY POINT… ONCE I TOOK THE ACTION my entire attitude changed. It was like having a heavy weight removed from my shoulders. The take-away-is… DO EVERYTHING you can – AS SOON AS YOU CAN – and then move on. There are some things in life we just cannot control.

I’ve lived most of my life worrying about the “What Ifs!” So much time was wasted. None of us know how long we are going to be here, so it’s better to enjoy the time we have and do the best we can. My wish for myself is to be here for a long time to come and make the most difference I can. I would like to be remembered for a contribution of something good!

It is true though… With each failure comes some sort of knowledge! Too bad I did not learn this years before I did instead of taking each failure as “just that ~ a heartbreaking failure!”

Lots of the time we are dealing with other people and we have no control over what happened to them that day or their hang ups or how they look at things. That will be the subject of another blog entry! ;)

It’s not easy, but it’s the only way. I look to find joy within myself ~ ONLY THEN can I have the spirit to hopefully inspire others while I inspire myself. Sometimes “we have to be our own cheer leaders!”

Sometimes people are cliquey and they only inspire those within their immediate cliques. So we need to form our own cliques, even if that clique only includes us! IF WE BELIEVE ENOUGH we can achieve! I have to believe this!

HUGE Luv & Hugs ~ today and everyday!

Roz
