If you want to see just how small
our problems really are go for a walk
on the mountains.
Talk about getting some perspective.
This picture was taken somewhere
up in the Arizona mountains. NE of
Phoenix. I know that my mind was
heavy with issues and this trip help
me get some perspective.
Things will happen and how we react
will have a huge impact on everything.
I know my reactions have affected my
health, emotional stability, stress levels,
and so much more that I, and you should
know better but it don’t always works that way.
I guess what I am trying to tell you gang
is that in order to protect ourselves and
so be able to be the best we can be,
we must “kind of” stop every now and then.
Think before reacting. And yes some times
Shut The Heck Up.
Gang let us do the best we can for all but
specially for ourselves.

This post Alex came from a place of reflection. A time long ago when I was in a place so dark that I was not able to see a way out. Walking has always helped me to clear my mind but this time I had to get away in order to gain some perspective. I know that even when I wanted to do the best I could I had fell short. I knew that regardless of my best intentions and desire to be and do good and maybe even great I couldn’t. I was falling apart. I learned that I had the desire and the drive and I also learned that I had to let go of the past in order to move towards the future. With all that I started a process that has taken me years. I was never afraid to put the work or the time. I was never worried about my ability to push more and harder but I had first to let go of the past. Forgive my self and forgive others. Work for me but also pray for the others. The hardest part for me was to accept that after all I still could find meaning and then happiness. Not a day goes by that I do not work on me and on more. Every day I try to be a better person. Every day I try to learn something. Every day I ask for peace and forgiveness and every day I give peace and forgiveness. Every Day I Try.
You, Me, everybody, We are just humans with flaws and shortcomings. I no longer judge anyone. I no longer expect perfection from anyone. All I can do is offer a hand and hope for the best. I hope this helps. I hope you have peace in your heart as it will make a world of difference on the daily road of life.
You sound young. I am 52 years old. I hope this does not sounds preachy as that is not my intention. I do not know you but I wish peace for you. That has been the greatest gift I have been granted.
I do not know you but know that there is someone in Mexico praying for you.
