Frey Freyday- Hope

(Frey Freyday is simply a bunch of inspirational, motivational and other quotes meant to make you think, reflect, smile, even laugh a bit. Hopefully helpful, useful stuff….)

Hope- [hōp]- hopes (plural noun)-a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen:

Where there is no vision, there is no hope. George Washington Carver –

Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen… yourself, right now, right down here on Earth. Bradley Whitford –

Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness. Desmond Tutu –

We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope. Martin Luther King, Jr. –

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning. Albert Einstein –

WORD TO LIVE BY:

HOPE- Hope is about keeping perspective. We’ve all had good and beautiful days before and we need to remember that they will come again. It is the remembering, the perspective and the focus on the good stuff that sustains our hope.

Remember…..if you’re in a tough spot and struggling, think about those times when things did go well. Remember those you surprised yourself with how well you did something. Remember how kind you were or how kind others were to you. Recall those good times, those times that there was success, those times that good things did happen. Give yourself some credit. Give others some credit, too.

Author Brendon Burchard says, “Look at nature and realize how lucky we are to be here. Go for a stroll outside and look at people as they smile and realize how lucky you are to be here. Walk into a restaurant and see people flirting with each other and having fun at dinner or celebrating, and you start getting a different sense of life. Sometimes you have to get out of your house to feel hope, to keep perspective.”

From time to time we can all become myopic to our own ego, emotional reality, and little worlds. We can miss world all around us.

In my own instance, when I feel down or lose hope, I step back, and really try to look at my life and give thanks. You can’t be both grateful AND hopeless. Also, it helps immensely if I go and do something to help someone else. I see that others may not have it as good as I do, and my actions create good feelings, goodwill and by my own actions, I create hope.

Remember one more thing: Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people, just like you, who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all. –

Frey Freyday was actually born out of something I created called “Words To Live By” (WTLB). Going forward, I will now not only share the quotes, as you may be used to receiving, but also a related (WTLB). In 1999, when we had our first daughter, I was contemplating how I would raise my new beautiful child, and I was thinking about how I can best educate her and my other children about values, morals, and other key thoughts about life. School offers education. Religion offers some values and morals. Parents offer most of it, sometimes intentionally, sometimes accidentally.

So I created a (WTLB) book, like a dictionary, which lists things like honesty, love, persistence, etc. with a definition that I created, with my wife’s input. I then turned it into a workbook with one word per page and space below for notes. For years we would discuss with my two daughters and they would draw pictures and make notes in the blank space. I may share some of those images with you. As they got older, they were less inclined to draw and more open to quotes and references from adults, hence where Frey Freyday came from….

Inspiration from within

It doesn’t matter if you’re 18 or 80 – you still need something to drive you forward.  The inspiration you seek is found within, waiting to be called upon by an unforeseen challenge or inspired request. -Tony Robbins

Frey Freyday – Music inside

Music inside you  – whatever you think about, your interest, passion, purpose- regardless what your ‘job’ is……

Don’t die with your music still inside you.Listen to your intuitive inner voice and find what passion stirs your soul. – Wayne Dyer

WORD TO LIVE BY:

 

So what does it mean, “Don’t die with your music still inside you”? -Basically, it means to listen to your intuitive inner voice and find what passion stirs you.

This means that maybe you always wanted to paint, write a book, go travel somewhere, start a business, talk to someone, resolve something, achieve something – whatever! Go do it. Now.

Can you imagine being on your deathbed knowing that you always wanted to write a book and not having even tried? (to try and fail is OK) Some say the regrets from not doing something are much greater than regrets from doing something. To have a dream or passion and ignore it will eat at you until you die.

But sometimes fear stops people. Fear of failure, embarrassment, even fear of success.

If we feel fear, a few things a person can do to erase fear include: being thankful, thinking from the end as if you already have it, put ourselves in a good emotional state and focus on action steps that we can take Now, today.

It’s been proven that the thoughts we choose have everything to do with our emotions. I can tell you that a commitment to feeling good can take away a stomach ache, fear, depression, sadness, anxiety—you name it.  .

Frey Freyday – Moments

(Frey Freyday is simply a bunch of inspirational, motivational and other quotes meant to make you think, reflect, smile, even laugh a bit. Hopefully helpful, useful stuff….)

mo·ment-[ˈmōmənt]- a very brief period of time:

Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life. Omar Khayyam

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment. Buddha

No matter how dark the moment, love and hope are always possible. George Chakiris

If you carry joy in your heart, you can heal any moment. Carlos Santana

You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Henry David Thoreau

Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have. Make the Now the primary focus of your life. Eckhart Tolle

WORD TO LIVE BY:

MomentsSmall points in time which we can intentionally enhance. These moments define our own experiences and the experiences of those around us. In the moment, can intentionally enhance our own lives and the lives of those around us.

Think about a memory. Any memory, good or bad, old or new. You can basically put yourself in that moment; you can feel the emotion, maybe even recall the sounds, smells? You were present in that moment, you were aware and living. At that moment, you weren’t worrying, you weren’t anticipating something in the future, and you weren’t looking into the past. You have that memory because you were ‘in that moment’.

Moments happen ‘to us’ in life. Sure. But we can also create moments. We can create experiences.

Let’s face it, moments and experiences are our lives. Our memories are moments and experiences. What else is there? Things that happened in school, with our parents, tough times, good times, playground things, moments with someone we like, moments when we feel fear, moments of joy and bliss.

We live life in the moment. When we worry about the future, or anticipate it, or when we ponder over the past, we’re not able to see the moment, we don’t have awareness of the moment, and we miss it – we miss life.

There are moments in history, in sports. These can be defining moments for a person, a group, a nation.

We can think about a moment in politics, in civil rights, with a sports team at school, on TV – in a moment something happened, and then things were different. One minute a group felt one way, and then a few minutes later, the consensus changed, consciousness elevated. We can make those moments happen in our lives, too.

Our lives are very different from one another. However, how we experience a moment is the same. We can learn to create moments. There’s a book that breaks down moments; The Power of Moments, by Chip Heath and Dan Heath. They state that, ‘our most memorable positive moments are dominated by four elements: elevation, insight, pride, and connection. If we embrace these elements, we can conjure more moments that matter. What if a teacher could design a lesson that he knew his students would remember twenty years later? What if a manager knew how to create an experience that would delight customers? What if you had a better sense of how to create memories that matter for your children?

This book delves into some fascinating mysteries of experience: Why we tend to remember the best or worst moment of an experience, as well as the last moment, and forget the rest.’
Today, as you go into the world, be in the moment and look for ways that you might be able to create a defining moment for yourself, for loved ones, for others.
