I would like to clarify that I am good fired up, not angry, just fired up about life. I'm a big believer that life is really what you make of it. My Aunt has a blog titled, "Life is simple, just not always easy" Or something along those lines....and I believe that to be true. Life is simple, or it is at least meant to be simple. Period. There are things that are going to come up that will throw you for a loop or that will toss you off course, but ultimately, it is simple.
Bad things are going to happen and you are the one that chooses how you react to those bad things. Want to be angry and pissed about those things? Fine. Go ahead, but what a waste....while you are focusing on these bad things that are happening, you are totally missing out on the good things in life that are right under your nose.
Some people are afraid of success. Others are afraid of being happy. These types of people don't want to succeed because they are afraid they will ultimately fail. These same people are afraid of being happy because they are convinced that something will make them unhappy again.
"Whether you think you can or think you can't - you're right" - Henry Ford
Instead of saying, "Why me?" say, "Why not me?" Everything we go through is a learning experience. It may not be a pleasant experience, but it is a learning experience nonetheless. And the person you are today is shaped from those past experiences.
The phrase, "Do not be afraid" appears maaaaaaaany times throughout the Bible. Being afraid is easy and in a sense, lazy...anyone can do it. It takes a strong and secure person to turn that fear into something else. I choose to be fearless.
This post was inspired by a client at the studio who had me fired up about life earlier....and apparently still fired up. Thanks for inspiring me to look on the bright side.

Oh, and he's still absolutely adorable....
