STANDING POWER: WHAT DOES THE FUTURE HOLD FOR AMERICA

Low Angle View of Flag Against Blue Sky

“The shift has caused conflict, but will it last?”


With all the social issues that have been popping up in the news recently, you have to ask yourself the question. Does America have standing power over the long haul? Because people are getting real antsy regarding the lack of jobs and their lost of freedoms. Not to mention these different regions are preaching sentiments of the past that could only hurt America not help. So what does the future hold for the country? In my opinion, I think that America is just fine, it’s just a rough patch we’re going through right now. But if it is, what is the reason, and when will it end? Or, on the other hand, maybe we just see more today than the past. That could be another reason it seems we’re heading downhill. Whatever it is, it has people off the rails.

One main reason, like I said above is because of the availability of the news in society. In the past, we didn’t have 24 hour news cycles that never seemed to never end. And when there was breaking news, the news really was breaking. Now, if the president is wearing an article of clothing we don’t like it becomes breaking. administration, articles, bankThe internet does not help the situation either; with social media, everything seems so much more worse than it is in real life. If you didn’t know any better you would think that we are on the brink of a major catastrophe. Then when something does happen that is bad, we start to really panic. Because all it does is further validates what we thought was really going in society. But is the news media the only aspect of society that makes you question its longevity.

What about the idea that jobs that have long been the source of America infrastructure have left and it seems like nothing is replacing it. We have so many people in America who only knew the factories, yet now what are they left with since everything is leaving. What are they left to do? Well, if they would educate themselves, there is a lot of money to be made in our country. adult, blur, booksAnd the money lies in this new tech space, yet so many don’t know how to access such information. The answer is to Google, Facebook, Instagram, Yahoo, or YouTube it. Look up information and try to put yourself in the know. But this is tough when the status quo has been the same for so long. Most people get up and work as if there will be a check for them every two weeks. Only problem is that this is not always the case. Sometimes you have to learn new things to keep you abreast of every change in time.

Which brings me to the last reason I think America is spiraling. We need to jump on with this new wave instead of rekindling all flames. American citizens are like someone looking up to see how someone who they used to date is doing. When you should be moving forward in life instead of trying to check on old flames. One U.s. Dollar Beside 100 Philippine PesosThere is a reason it ended, just leave it in the past. And that in the end, is a problem in America. We think by heading backward we can move forward. The problem with that is that we are not in the early to mid 1900’s. This is a global economy, and in order to thrive you have to find your place in this space. Other emerging nations are starting to make their come up and if America does not shift ourselves, we might be left lagging behind. China has already surpassed our economy as number one in the world. So it’s up to us to not only be the change, but make the change as well.

RUNNING ON E: EVER WISH YOU HAD MORE TIME FOR YOU

“Ever need a filler up?”


Have you ever came home at the end of the day and your body was exactly on E. You wake up in the morning on full and by the days end you have nothing to give. Some of us even wake up with equal or less than half a tank of gas. What are you to do to when you have such a lack of energy? More so, how do most people come to this point in their lives of little to no energy on a daily basis? It can be a multitude of issues ranging from children to employment. It can be running an errand or constantly worrying about bills that need to be paid. But for the most part it is children and employment.

Starting with children, children are an adjustment to people’s lives that forces you to restructure your whole entire existence. Especially when the children are so young. When a child is an infant, your every moment you are free must be spent with them to build a form of familiarity. So not only are you trying to balance a job, but you need to spend unpaid free time with a child. You’re feeding them, playing with them, rocking them to sleep. And if they wake up crying you must be the one putting them back to sleep. Is there any other area where people feel they are running on empty? And there is, it’s from the previous paragraph: employment.

When you get up in the morning from the sound of that alarm, the first thing you think is same shit different day. Some of us like I said before are waking up to half a tank of energy. Others are close to E, yet they have to find some form of energy to raise themselves to half a tank or more. So how is that possible? How is it possible that we operate on such a low amount of energy and still make it to work and perform our task? Some people say luck while others feel it is a blessing. But I think it tends to be more than that. It is survival and you’ll be surprised the things you can do, especially in desperate situations. So how do you change course? How do you shift your life so that you can operate on full or close to it?

A lot of us operating on low energy has to do with the quality of life. People with a poor quality of life typically operate on lower levels of energy. But the desperation to survive keeps them going. Hanging on by a thread, but nonetheless still going. Now is that anyway to live, no, but for some it’s the only way to live. Or it may be the only way they know how to live. But it is going to take more than just what you know, to live. Like in a previous topic, I stated tapping into your inner talent. That requires self awareness; the self awareness which will take you from the running on E feeling. But tapping into inner you requires years of work, skill, keeping your eyes open and watching society around you. Nature will show you the way and your feeling on running out of energy will show you how to slow things down.

GETTING THROUGH THE DAY: HOW SOME DAYS ARE BETTER THAN OTHERS

“Everyone has them, very few don’t.”


We have all had those days where we are feeling depressed or some other form of sorrow. It usually starts at the beginning of the day, and last throughout the day. Other times it seems to come out of nowhere without warning; onset depression. You wonder why does this happen, and how do you cure yourself of such feelings. Most of all, you want to know when will it stop and go away. What are the factors that contribute to you feeling this way? Are there internal feelings that seem to poke through when you least expect it? How can you decrease the odds of you feeling such anxiety in the future?

This has happened to me at times in my life. But for me, it does not start at the beginning of the day. It usually happens out of nowhere. Psychologist call it a trigger, and before you know it, you’re full swing into thoughts of frustration and anger. But where does this come from. Usually, there is this underlying feeling that you have, that you don’t act on, yet it lies dormant in your mind. For example, you go throughout the day feeling good and treating people with respect, but you have this internal rage. This rage that translate into negative thoughts toward other people. It’s uncomfortable to talk about because you’re a good person. But the feeling has nothing to actually do with harming innocent people. You have something internally you need to correct with yourself.

These intrusive thoughts plagued us on a daily basis. How do we eliminate these intrusive thoughts and where do they come from? Another reason the intrusive thoughts creep into our minds has to do with quality of life. When your life is in order, you have better days, you sleep better, have friendlier conversations, and just all around good-nature existence. Intrusive moments happen when you don’t have anything going on in life and/or in between good and bad times. That uncertainty is tough to deal with because you feel like a juggler where someone grabs one of your balls, and throws everything off. What’s another reason down moments happen and how do you combat them?

Down moments can also take place with the change in weather. That’s right, when it’s raining you typically fall into a state of depression quicker than when the temperature is 75 degrees and sunny. It’s not the rain itself, it’s that gloomy days are a reminder of tough times we are going through or have experienced in life. And when weather worsens, we are stuck in the house with little to do, almost like a sick day. So in the end, as you can see, there are multiple reasons why someone experience a rough day. Some rough days are easier to combat than others. Obviously when someone close to you is sick, it will cause you to have a rough day. But out of nowhere hurtful days are the ones we struggle with the most. It’s days like these that we need to sit back and assess what’s wrong in our lives that takes our minds to this desolate place.
