Reinvention.

Pretty powerful word, if you'd ask me any given day at my whopping 48.

I've been up and down and all away around in my life. That's why I named my blog,  Believing, the Ups and Downs of Life.

All of us strive or want to strive on becoming better people.  More accomplished, successful, some might want to be rich, others may want recognition, or just want to do something different with their lives.

All I want to do is basically find purpose.

It's not that I don't have purpose in life because I certainly do.  My family life has always been straight and center for me.  When I married twenty-eight years ago, and then became a first time mommy almost twenty-five years ago everything changed for me.  Running my home like a fine Swiss watch has always been my pride and joy.  But, I want a bit more for myself now.

The thing is that,  when you are turning fifty the vibes you get from the people who sometimes surround us is that basically life is over.

What!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't like when people say,

"You know, what can I do really?"  -  "I'm almost fifty."

Well let me hand you the memo, you can do a bunch of stuff, that's what you can do.

We have the power of changing  whatever we don't want in our lives.  The only thing we really need to do is believe we can, and go ahead and do it.  Most of the things we need to make those changes are just right inside us.

Not everything has to do with how other see or think about you,  it's more about how you see, think and feel about yourself.

Some people complain about their weight, others about their job, others about church, others about their families, others about their finances, but really guys, at the end it's all about just that complaining.

Most of us don't do hoot about resolving the issues we complain about.

Today is a new day, full of opportunities to make all those little changes that can lead up to huge ones that will impact all aspects of our lives.  The first thing I need to do and probably you can also give it a try is,  to change the way I think. 

Let's free old grudges, restore relationships (that are worth it) or move on to new ones, embrace life with all its mishaps (we can't control), and basically try to find happiness and above all hope.

This doesn't mean everything will be fine and dandy because they are times when we are just pissed off, but we have to learn to handle that last part.  Being angry isn't even such a bad thing because positive things can come out of it if we learn to use its energy.  Just don't hurt anyone in the process.

So, you see "mis queridos amigos" hope and believe are two simple commands that can make a world of a difference.  Today is a great day to reinvent yourself even if it's in a small way.

Never stop believing.
