words of wisdom from a YUPPY

happy UNmothers day!
Glorious rejoicing upon the eve of the BIGGEST day of the year ~ mother’s day, the BIGGEST guilt day of the annual calendar year.  More money is spent on Mother’s Day than any other day of the year.


Perhaps it has slid in importance and sprinkled upon our millennial hipsters < the younger version and offspring of YUPPIES>.









I’m the luckiest of all of those others, Queen of the Crestfallen.  My birthday falls in April, three weeks before Mother’s Day, so I can veer off disappointment lane when it’s forgotten.





If the ones you love the most can’t or don’t honor your birthday, the day celebrating the day you were born, the most unique event in everyone’s life:  a birthday.  Without YOU being born, those entitled offspring who rarely appreciate how unique YOU.  One of a kind.  If pushed, the said offspring would acknowledge how little they would change in YOU, their mother.  

You’ve sure done a great job, of raising those young Millennial Hipsters.  So well, in fact, that they calmly accept being the center of the universe, rarely acknowledging the way they were born, or by whom.





I wouldn’t change a minute of it.  Being a mom has made me a lot tougher in so many ways like stifling fear and doing my darnedest to appear strong.  Even when fears before you knew were fears begin to surface.  Being a mom who did an excellent job of guiding her children in the best way she can, not in any singular form of wisdom, religion, experience or philosophy.  





That is a lesson that anyone should achieve.  On every UNmothers day every other day of the year ::… save your money on that one explosive day of feast or famine that mothers of the world unite.  Sprinkle it every UNmothers day with a small bouquet of tulips, or a greeting card with a $5 Starbucks or Tim Horton’s card.  





Celebrate today, this #unMOTHERSday hashtag for the next 24 hours in 140 characters or less on Twitter, include me @optioneerJM with #RT so we REPLY and connect with expanding new followers, unique and special because you share the same spirit and celebrate excellent quality.





Today take the time to do something special to say “Ya, I done good.”  Relish the moment, or take a moment every other day of the year to remind yourself of that.

YOU, too, can be a *SUPERSTAR***





I really like the direction I am going in
after reflection, digging deep down and unmasking some goals, I have started to focus a bit better.


An interaction with someone
who could mentor me caused a chain reaction ::… stepping outside my fingertips and simply taking a stroll around.


What is the main message 
or how have I grown?  That being at the eureka phase of life where a treasure trove of happiness floats.





We can talk about karma
or charisma or vibe ::… falling short on real wonderful qualities that attracts both the gifted and the live-long learner.


The last kick at the cat
is where mid-life crisis collide with diminishing time ::… on the earth.  Can we safely and calmly say that we will leave the world a better place than when we entered it.


Borrowing the theme
from “It’s a Wonderful Life” starring Jimmy Stewart.  My favorite Christmas movie of all time.  WOW, and it isn’t even half way past or to the Holiday Season we acknowledge by “Merry Christmas” greetings.


Let’s borrow the theme then
regardless of age or gender.  Because if you are mature enough to read this PG blog, you should be able to understand the challenge being put forth.





Grab a notebook and a pen
or a tablet or anything with a keyboard that can capture your thoughts. 


Ask yourself this
very important question ::….. if you were no longer here tomorrow, regardless of cause, would you have left the world a better place?


Being honest with yourself
is the greatest gift you can give yourself.
Like one of my father’s quotes:  “U may think ur fooling most of the people most of the time, the only person you are fooling is yourself”.


Do not stretch the truth
if you feel compelled to list your many accomplishments, like having wonderful children, snug with the love of your life, in your big badass house, surrounded by oodles of material “things”.





Will you leave the world
a better place? If not, you better get cracking and get at it.  In the peaceful euphoric world that one could ever imagine, many before have accomplished such a feat.


The few and far betweeners
on a very exclusive and minute list of great and honorable people who put there best out there every single day.   Almost with a goal to make every single today, better in tomorrows, from the being in that day to make that speach or say that quote, that inspires someone, holds the fallen upright, without fear or consideration on how it may affect them, personally, whether by prosecution, slander real or from fame.


The story of humanity 
in their words tell us tales of tribute, gratitude, humility, as they evolve and become storytellers.  Either stories about themselves and/or their great deeds, not dwelt upon their human failings, which we are bade to not judge others from any spiritual guide (i.e. The Bible, The Quo-ran).


Pope Francis
The Daili Lama
Mother Theresa
Nelson Mendella
Princess Diana
Queen Elizabeth
Mohammed
Jesus


Whichever order or fashion  
I didn’t list by importance, just who came to mind.  Then there are those who were more clouded by controversy then the gifts they imparted:


Michael Jackson
Steve Jobs
President John F. Kennedy
Picasso
Matisse






Plenty more unknown to us
step out every day and help others without expectation of any reward.  Some may flourish with wealth and fame, while others toil towards their personalized end game.  Like George in “It’s a Wonderful Life” everyone can leave their mark and sometimes can choose the Epilogue or Epitaph engraved on their tomb or urn or grave.  Who leave the world a better place


My sister, Diana
Gives of her time and attention and holy intervention is helping kids who would otherwise have been cast aside.  Lucky for us, the world no longer sympathizes if anyone is hidden away, institutionalized, or slandered.


Contrary to popular belief
People want someone to look up to, in admiration and not clouded by fame.  


People are smarter
than most scammers would admit.  Are antennae are  on high alert.  More and more each day.


Fearful more than optimistic
looking for someone, some thing, or some event to lift us up and restore our confidence in human kind.


Like the names before us
to whatever degree or shame.  They had faults like the rest of us, yet we held them to a higher standard, demanded perfection from our icons.
