Can you Share? Giver or Taker?

I had something happen to me recently that made me think of this. Of course, I am always seeing things as a message from God. 
Open your hand and look at it. What do you see? Are you, a giver or a taker? 

 

Give or Take

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some people will say they are a giver; they will say I give all the time to others, and in church, even to a man in the street. However, who will say I am a taker, and I will take advantage of whoever or whatever I can.


It is alright to take advantage of opportunities, but not people. The sun shines on all of us; that is a good thing. Just like we will are look at through God’s eyes the same way.


Shouldn’t a taker give back, and a giver received back the same? A taker cannot handle not being given; however, a giver knows about favor. That somewhere in life, they will get it back in life.  It just may not be from the same person.

Do you need rest, or is it just your life that you need a break from?

We all need a break, that one thing to snap into place.  The one thing that will make everything we do work for the good of our future.  Of course, it will take work and trying different things.  You also need to be driven and a desire to succeed. It also helps if you like what you are doing.

Nicole who is a single parent, she said her son was 16-year-old now. I remembered when she started on a reality show, her son was a baby.  She said she use to be a house cleaner, now look where she has gone. How did she become so successful, it starts with an idea?  She must not sleep, now that her business and shows are doing so well, not to mention having a teenage son.  We need a break,or break through like her.

Ivy's Memory Makers

I am big on making changes in life as you go through it.  By do something different it can serve as the break you need from your daily route.  You have to keep your mind open, so that you can see all the possibilities that are available.

I went to a seminar for house flipping this weekend.  Pathway education had an event for Nicole Curtis, who does a show called Rehab Addict.

I have never worked in home restoring or real estate, I am a writer, or want to be one.  I have many interests including house flipping.  Restoring of anything is what I like, just as Nicole Curtis, it is a major interest of mine.  I have gone to seminars on starting your own business, so they sent me notification for this one.

House flipping may be a little too much work then for me at the moment.  Maybe…

House flipping may be a little too much work then for me at the moment.  Maybe if I was younger and did not have so many things that I am working on, I would have signed up for it.  I am a believer if you were not good in school, why go to college do a trade school at least.  They were having a three-day training on every part of buying and selling real estate.

I am getting ready to do an eight month, three days a week, computer programming course.  I don’t know how I am going to fit it in my schedule, or how I will fit all my projects into the school schedule.  There are some major issues that I am going to have to work through at the same time, including my first adventure on a cruise ship.  Dedication and hard work has never been one of my short comings.

Nicole touch on some things that I have noticed also, that the next generation will have to be a lot more prepare.  You will have to be flexible in the career choose, and of course work harder in the coming up years.  Do you have any interest?  Think about them as your next career.  I am not able to do home restoration or real estate at the moment but who knows, after I complete my class what might come my way.

When you stop wanting to do things for you, your life can start to drag.  You lose the excitement of having something to look forward to.  Even if the opportunity was not for me at this moment, it opened my mind and refreshed my thought process.

Your Dreams can be Lost

dream yourselfYour Dreams can be Lost

I received an email the other day stating that it was the final week on  my online class in computer programing.  I thought I needed this class because it was a requirement for another class would be taking later.  I thought about my plans for the future.  What cause me to get off track is another story.  There is always something that came up and can distract you from what you planned on doing.  What you have to do is work hard and get back on track.  I rush working to complete all the assignment and quizzes.  Then I submitted it just in time to get credit for class.  

Do you have a dream, or plans for your future?  You need to move forward, don’t let excuses or events get in the way of where you want to be in life.

They say a dream is free, however…..

If I worked hard at everything, I did I would be wealthy.  If I did well in everything aimed for, I would have achieved more.  If I followed through on everything, I dreamed of I would be successful.

Are you working and aiming for your dreams?  When did you stop dreaming?

Are you hungry? Man can not live by bread alone.

Are You Hungry?  Man can not live by bread alone.
Is your life being turned upside down?  We can be sad, but don’t give up.  Nothing can be resolved by giving up; however, there is so much to learn.

We learn by our mistakes, no one is perfect.  When you watch a baby learn to walk, how many times will they fall before they can walk?  It is part of the process.

What is Proper Etiquette, these days?

I received a email invitation for a bridal shower.  I emailed back to ask why they mail invitation out.  I might have not looked at the email right away, or even notice who it was from.  If at all, depending on if the email went into my spam account.  I was told that there would not be any mailed out, even though bridal shower the was a couple of months away.   Even though it was months away, and the wedding was in the planning over a year, they did not feel as though they should have to mail invitation out.  I was thinking the entire time impersonal, what happen to the nice things that make up the memories.

What is Proper Etiquette, these days?

” I sent you the invitation months ago,” through your email.

Just because you can purchase paper plates and silverware, it does not mean you do not need to own real one. You can take pictures on your phone, it does not mean that you don’t need to print out picture again.  Because you can send out emails and texts; that  does not mean you never make a phone call again.   E-viting does not mean you should never send out invitations.  What is proper and personal mean these days, if you send it via email or text?

Do you save memories of the special thing like the pictures that you hang on walls.  Your brain holds thoughts, that is not as good as writing a note that you can refer to.  We have e-mails that pile up, then you delete them and spam for the things that your computer marks as junk.  If your invite to a special event went in there would you notice before you click delete.  How many spam things do you look at prior to deleting? 

Personal is personal, use email and invitation as they were meant.  Don’t let in invitation be considered junk.

Comic Con San Diego is over, and as usual I was not disappointed.

Comic Con San Diego comes around once a year.  It followed the San Diego fair, only by a couple of days.  Now that is it over, what is next?  I heard there is an Over-the-line tournament that just started this past weekend in San Diego. That too  is a large event; however, I am still back with Comic Con at the moment thinking about all the excitement.  I wonder did I see any star or would I know them if I did?  Do you think you would be able to recognize a celebrity if you saw one?

Life has those moments that can be filed with the greatest memories.
