The Beginning

I start today like I start every day and that is with a choice:

Should I play the same record over and over or should I change my world?

Growth comes through change.

Today is the beginning of the rest of my life. All I have to do to change the world is to start by changing my mind.

 

“The Beginning”

This is the beginning of the record you like
Over and over, over and over!
This is the beginning of the record you like
Over and over, over and over!Breaking up, fading out,
Holding on until tomorrow!
Shake it off, turn around,
Won’t be long, till is a brand new day!

[Chorus:]
This is the beginning, the beginning!
This is the beginning of the rest of your life!
This is the beginning, the beginning!
This is the beginning of the rest of your life!

You better get it – get it (get – get) get it – get it – right – right
That was then, this is now.
Here we go starting over

That was then, this is now,
Here we go starting over!
You decide, change your mind,
Miracles happen every day!

[Chorus:]
This is the beginning, the beginning!
This is the beginning of the rest of your life!
This is the beginning, the beginning!
This is the beginning of the rest of your life!

You better get it – get it (get – get) get it – get it – right – right
That was then, this is now.
Here we go starting over

Change the world, change your mind,
We defy space and time!
Change the world, change your mind,
We defy space and time!
Change the world, change your mind,
We defy space and time!

[Chorus:]
This is the beginning, the beginning!
This is the beginning of the rest of your life!
This is the beginning, the beginning!
This is the beginning of the rest of your life

 

San Diego LGBTQ Pride 2018

It’s here. It’s already here.

San Diego celebrates in July. After the other two large cities in our Golden State take the last two weekends in June, San Diego gives everyone a couple week break and then  continues the celebrations.

I’ve been celebrating Pride since the first one I ever had the opportunity to attend. That particular pride was Seattle Pride 1990. I have been out of the closet since I was but a teenager however the place I lived had yet to have a pride celebration.

What Pride means to me is simply that we can be and are or authentic selves. In that we respect each other and support each other in living authentic lives. We celebrate and embrace diversity, acceptance, understanding, respect, affirmation, love and freedom.

Pride is, and should always be, a place of safety to simply just be. Just be. Be without judgment, discrimination, hatred and intolerance.

Be authentic. Be real.

Angels Amoung Us

So I’m listening to a podcast this  morning, Ru Paul: “What’s the Tee” with Michelle Visage, when I was suddenly contemplating Angels. Michelle stimulated that contemplation with her mention of her belief in Angels.

Do Angels live amoung us? I believe so.

I believe that the spark that is life which resides within us is divine. I believe that spark is magical for it gives us life. This spark is energy and consciousness. I believe that the spark is from something greater than myself. The universe is greater than me. I didn’t create the earth, the oceans, the tides, the sun or life itself. I am of the earth, the oceans, the tides, the sun and of life. I am not the universe but am of the universe.

Angels are magical. Angels are good. Angels give. Angels save. Angels help.

Is it possible that fellow beings are possibly Angels? Is it possible that you and I could be Angels for others?  Or even each other?

I know that when I needed help, guidance or an uplift that somehow got it. I got it when I was vulnerable, honest and asked. Help arrived somehow or someway and someone or something was there and I made it through. I gained strength or ability or insight or stamina to get through.

As I drift off to sleep tonight I will contemplate the blessings of my life that I can’t explain. I’ll contemplate whether maybe a few Angels have helped me along the path that is my life. I will choose to be grateful for each one.

Upon awaking in the morning I may contemplate where I may have been an Angel in the life of another. I will ask myself how I might be an Angel to someone I know right now or may meet as I move through the journey that is my path.

I know for sure that all my dogs throughout my life have been  Angles to me. I hope that I was an Angel for each of them as well.

What about you? Who has been and Angel to you?  Who might you be an Angel for?

Reading List

In August The Better Half and I will attend Brian Buffini’s Mastermind Summit. This is an event we attend together annually for two and one half days. It is a bonding time for us to set goals, grow, think and learn. We find inspiration from not only the presenters but the attendees and each other.

In preparation I will begin reading prior to the event. Two of the recommended books authors will be presenting. Much of the material we receive will have been inspired by these three books. Besides now that Ru Paul’s drag race is over reading will give me evening activities.

Time for me to learn and for Fearsome to grow.

One thing we learned from Ru Paul’s newly crowned winner and the next drag superstar, Bob The Drag Queen, is always…always enter Beard First!

The Realness

Ru Paul does it again

Fearsome is on Team Kim Chi.

#TEAMKIMCHI

I have to admit that so am I.

Tomorrow is the final episode of Season 8 Ru Paul’s Drag Race. It’s been a great season and all three finalists are amazing. However Kim Chi caught our eye before the season started and when episode 1 hit airwaves we were ecstatic to see Kim Chi was a contestant.

She has not disappointed. She is truly an artist of illusion.

“What actually is the function of worry?”

That quote comes from the 2014 season of Ru Paul’s Drag Race. It’s quite profound.

Adore Delano asks Courtney Act “What do you worry most about this competition?” To which Courtney replies “What actually is the function of worry?”

Ok… so first Fearsome has a couple of indulgences other than Major League Baseball, Comic-Con and Led Zeppelin. One of those other indulgences is he watches Ru Paul’s Drag Race. He got hooked the year Chad Michaels of San Diego was a contestant. Besides what could be equally an example of comfort with your own masculinity than having a beard? Wearing a dress? Well the point of this post is not to debate that, but to contemplate Courtney’s statement.

“What actually is the function of worry?”

It doesn’t accomplish anything actually. It takes time and energy. It causes stress. One can become obsessed with it. It doesn’t change an outcome. It can ruin your mood and your day.

Sure we all have negative thoughts that can lead to worry, but why worry? Why not let that negative thought pass and focus on a good outcome? Take a step in the direction of where you want to go? Get in the game of life and work to create something wonderful?

Fearsome believes it’s what we choose to focus on. How we each decide to look at it. We have the ability to choose, so why choose worry?
