Hopelessness

John Marine | January 20, 2018 | | | Be the first to comment!
Hopelessness is as exactly as it sounds. You just have very little reason to believe in anything anymore because you lack hope and encouragement. Hopelessness can lead to low self-esteem and depression. A lack of hope means you are unable to do anything with confidence in achieving a positive outcome. It is tough to do anything or think in any manner because the inevitable happens (at least, what you consider inevitable)- impending failure and disappointment.

When you are hopeless, there is almost no point in trying something because you are bound to fail. This is the kind of feeling that dooms most individuals even before would-be failure happens. You learn to give yourself hope in anything and everything you do. When you do not have this hope, all you are doing is wasting your time and energy trying to make the impossible possible. Hopelessness is wanting a plant to become a huge tree, but unable to because one doesn't think it will ever be at its best. Hopelessness is teaching your child how to be a better person and learn concepts in school, but unable to because you feel that child will bring home bad grades or get into trouble. Being hopeless is basically reverse encouragement. Where we try to give hope and endorsement that things will provide a positive outcome, it ultimately leads to a totally lost cause as inevitable failure happens.

Having hopelessness take over your mind is a feeling of self-doubt and weakness. You can't smile or feel happy about anything when you feel nothing ever goes right for you. It is mind-numbing to imagine you can never become the successful individual you know you can be. It is okay not to think you are going to fail. That is natural. However, you try to defy any feelings that you will fail by doing your best to succeed at whatever you think you are going to fail at. Giving yourself hope and believing in hope helps you feel better and become more confident. Certain external factors also contribute to giving yourself hope. Even things outside of your control can be factors in hope.

The feeling of hopelessness can lead to feeling like nothing good ever happens. Most of the time, nothing good ever happens because one doesn't believe anything good can ever happen. You have to believe in yourself and your abilities. You can always teach yourself to do a task better, or gain some support from other people. You may even need other people to help encourage you if you lack hope. The moment you give up trying to work for a positive outcome and a positive future, that is where hopelessness hits you the hardest. Do whatever it takes to try to get yourself motivated and confident. You are not a weak person just because you require assistance from others. I have said this for the longest since first starting "John's Life Space."

If you find yourself lacking hope, learn to become confident and able. Even if you are not overly qualified to accomplish a task, at least give yourself a chance that you CAN pull through in the toughest of times. If you don't give yourself that chance, congratulations- you let failure win.


Bonus Material!

Here is a powerful video I found online if ever you feel down on yourself. I looked this up almost randomly preparing this blog post on hopelessness. Take a look:


^ WHEN YOU ARE HOPELESS - Inspirational Video (very emotional!)


Maybe this will help all of you to become better people and fight off hopelessness.





I often hope I am providing hope for others with my blog posts and my advice. Life is too short to think we all feel as if we are just living to die when we have the chance to live to live. Just remember:

Keep hope alive!

Anniversaries

John Marine | January 20, 2018 | | | Be the first to comment!
Anniversaries mark when certain instances happen. There are anniversaries of good moments and bad moments. Anniversaries are special in relationships. Better not forget your lover's anniversary! Anyhow, anniversaries are great to remember because it is special seeing just how far times have changed since such moments occurred.

Do you know what today is?


Tony! Toni! Toné! - Anniversary

:) I had to offer some kind of lighthearted approact to this blog post is. Here is another mood-setter...

Happy Anniversary
^ from: (Pinterest) - Anniversaries can be happy reminders. However, not every anniversary is a good one.

For some individuals, anniversaries can be happy reminders or bad ones.


Happy Anniversaries.

Surely remembering your first date with someone with a total stranger whom you eventually fell in love with and married and have children with is a happy anniversary. Remembering the day you silenced doubters by graduating from High School or college is an anniversary to celebrate. You may even remember the day you bought the house you still live in and enjoy. You could even celebrate years at your current job. These are all examples of happy anniversaries. They give you a chance to look back on moments that bring you joy and smiles.


Not So Happy Anniversaries.

Some anniversaries, however, can be bad ones. Bad meaning anything from certain failures to depressing to somber anniversaries. A bad anniversary may be when you can remember getting into that car crash or when you were suspended from school for fighting. You probably got injured on one certain day. Maybe it was a certain day when someone you loved died or was killed. Or maybe you endured a seriously unhappy (or potentially life-threatening) anniversary- in the event of things like a natural disaster, a horrific accident, or some kind of terrorist attack. These are moments that tug at you and test your happiness moving forward.


Indifferent Anniversaries.

Some anniversaries are not related to personal happiness or anything- they may simply be moments in history. For example, there are anniversaries such as when nations were born. Some anniversaries can involve certain landmark moments in history- such as women getting the right to vote or certain ethnicities getting certain rights previously barred from them. It could be the end of segregation in some societies. These are anniversaries that have you either liking or hating. Most of these anniversaries are more just memorable moments that have changed history.


What to Take Away From Anniversaries.

No matter what event(s) took place on a certain day or in a certain year, you always try to look back on how far you've come while also looking ahead to a brighter future. Hopefully a future that involves great happiness and joy ripe for the taking. If you become preoccupied with sad memories, that's all you're going to remember and endure for quite some time. It is good to remember the good and bad moments in your life. These are times that define you as you continually life and learn in making yourself a better person.

So be sure to remember the good and bad times in your life. Praise the good moments in your life, but always be hopeful to enjoy many more happy moments. Recall the tough times in your life, but look to learn from your failures or try to be more careful from such harsh moments. There is still a whole lot of your life ahead of you. Look back, move forward. That is what I say and suggest in regards to anniversaries.





Feel free to acknowledge anniversaries for what they are and what they are for.

What are your thoughts on anniversaries in general?

Thank you again for visiting "John's Life Space." Because... life happens. Thank you for reading! Take care and be well.

Birthdays

John Marine | January 15, 2018 | | | Be the first to comment!
January 15 is my birthday. So for this blog post, I want to talk about birthdays. One thing that is always great is to look back on how long you've lived so far. You may surprise yourself over this. When it comes to birthdays, the first thing that crosses my mind is wondering just what all I have been through. It is as if to say I am not supposed to live as long as I have. However, we all try to live for as long as we can while going through many aspects of our lives. We go through everything from being in decent health to facing things like being sick (or maybe even injured). We go through pain physically and emotionally. All the while, living life as best as we can. To celebrate an occasion like a birthday simply brings joy to all of us. Knowing we've lived so long and to have such opportunities to make the most of each day is worthy of celebration. Because of this, having a birthday and celebrating it brings us great joy.

Only thing more special than celebrating a birthday is having others wish you a happy birthday. It is a wonderful feeling when people take time out of their day and acknowledge your birthday and offer you birthday wishes. People don't have to do this or feel they are required to do so. However, it is a great feeling knowing people care this much. That, to me, is a much better feeling than celebrating a birthday. It is even better knowing you are loved and respected among a vast audience who wishes you a happy birthday. That's why on Facebook, I get so many birthday wishes from my friends. I don't care who offers birthday wishes or who is first to wish me a happy birthday- I am just thankful people think about me and offer their kindest words on such a special day and a special occasion. Even people who usually don't communicate with me online wished me a happy birthday. It is absolutely sweet knowing such people care so much. And once again- people DO care.

If you are reading this and have your own birthday you are celebrating, let me say...

Happy Birthday
^ from: (YouTube) - Happy birthday to you!

:)





Well, let me know what you think:

How do you feel about birthdays?

Thank you for reading! Take care and be well.

InspireU2Action

John Marine | January 04, 2018 | | | | Be the first to comment!
#InspireU2Action is a motivational initiative by Julie Barbera. Julie is the sister of inspirational singer Amy Barbera. The Barbera surname is familiar if you follow my "John's Blog Space" content. Here on "John's Life Space," I am using this blog post to promote Julie's inspirational initiative to all of you. It is a chance to share something with you all that you may find of great interest. So welcome to my life issues blog!

NOTE: This blog post is based on a post done originally on my main blog, "John's Blog Space." But rather than copy-and-paste an old blog post, this is a completely new and different post. That is what I do when making blog posts based on older posts from other blogs.






InspireU2Action


This is a lovely initiative by a lovely lady. Let's learn more about InspireU2Action. I need some kind of way to identify this post. So therefore, I am including this image to set the mood:

InspireU2Action Julie Barbera
^ from: (Twitter) - Julie Barbera, founder of InspireU2Action- a motivational and inspirational initiative.

What is InspireU2Action? InspireU2Action is a motivational tool from the mind and heart of Julie Barbera. She lends her inspiration and motivation to help others to be better people and be strong against all the worries of the world. She does so utilizing powerful messages in her podcasts.

What is important to note is that Julie Barbera provides the basic steps towards being a better person. Everything is built up step-by-step and includes some of her own personal insight. She delivers her messages in a unique and understandable way. Everything is paced at a level to where you know you can be inspired and where you know you can be better. Only thing is, she helps you get started if you are unable to motivate yourself beforehand. That really is the emphasis behind InspireU2Action. If you can not motivate yourself or get yourself motivated to positively change your life, then you will not be able to make yourself better for the future.

When not sharing her messages via podcasts, she shares her insights on social media ranging from Facebook to Twitter to Instagram. If you want to be a better person and look at the world and life in a different way, give Julie Barbera and InspireU2Action a try. InspireU2Action is getting a little more exposure as the site now offers a shop where you can buy merchandise so you can help financially support InspireU2Action.


InspireU2Action Sample.

Here is a sample of Julie Barbera and her motivational and inspirational work from one her earliest podcasts:


^ Power in One Small Step

Besides the advice, how about the sisterly love shown in this video? :) Julie with the advice; Amy with the music. Got to keep it in the family, you know!


For More Information...

You can visit the official home page of InspireU2Action at www.inspireu2action.com/. You can also find a link to InspireU2Action by looking at the "Positive People and Positive Places" section in the sidebar of "John's Life Space."

If Julie Barbera (or even Amy Barbera) is/are reading this, I am hopeful this blog post will help gain you some exposure. Best wishes to you in keeping this initiative going.

And if Amy Barbera happens to be reading this, keep providing the beautiful music you sing. Both you and Julie are wonderful people. You can learn more about Amy Barbera and her music by going to www.amybarbera.com.


Cross-Promotion/Other Reading.

Here is my original blog post on InspireU2Action, in case you are interested: InspireU2Action (John's Blog Space)





This blog is still very young, but I am doing all I can to increase exposure and make it a valuable online resource for those who visit. My goal with "John's Life Space" is to offer a positive space regarding all kinds of life issues from comical to serious. At least let me know that my work means something to the public-at-large. Meanwhile, Thank you for reading! Take care and be well.

The One That Got Away

John Marine | January 01, 2018 | | Be the first to comment!
Ever loved someone who seemed perfect for you? Now you're with somebody else (or still single), feeling like you lost the best partner you could ever have. That ex-lover is "the one that got away." Depending on how much that individual meant to you, you may end up feeling terrible that the one who possibly made you complete as a lover no longer wants anything to do with you. The way I've understood "the one that got away," there is someone out there who makes you complete when you look for love; but when you or that person leaves you, you feel like the best possible person to be with is gone. Almost as if to say you let go of the perfect (or seemingly perfect) lover that you want no one else to want to be with, or you missed out on a golden opportunity to be with someone who could complete you as a person. So you end up feeling like the best possible fit for you is now gone. Basically, making you be relegated to finding second best.

We are always under the presumption that there is that special someone who is the perfect fit for us. Perhaps you get to meet that special someone; perhaps you have to keep looking. If you do manage to be with that someone who completes you and that you can love most, you would hate to lose that person whom you felt the most complete and comfortable with. You want to make sure that one you love is YOURS and yours alone. What breaks you up could be of your doing or of that other individual. The other individual may find somebody else and probably live a happier life with another lover, leaving you in shambles. Maybe you will find some other person to love but never feel completely happy being with that lover as opposed to when you were with your now now ex-lover.

I am no relationship expert, and I have never been in any proper relationship. However, I do gain somewhat a grasp on the concept of "the one that got away." All I can say is that you just keep finding the one who completes you most and who you want to be with the most. Maybe you find that someone but then feel happier with someone else. If you want to be taken and loved, find someone whom you can build chemistry with. Love, though, is not about finding the one who is the most perfect; it is instead finding someone whom you can love for a long time. Perhaps love 'til death do you part. Relationships shouldn't be like buying a new mattress, buying a new computer, buying new appliances, or anything that has to periodically be changed. Yet still, do not give up on love if you want to be in any loving relationship. If you somehow no longer are loved by this individual you fell for and can never find anyone who was seemingly the perfect fit for you, then you really did fall in love with one who got away. And if there is someone who truly got away from you, just try to find someone who is not as perfect yet still loving and caring. Perfection isn't everything.





That concludes this blog post. If you want to discuss this topic, let's do so.

What do you think about the ones who get away in our love lives? How do you deal with the pain of letting "that one" getting away?

First post of 2018 for "John's Life Space!" HAPPY NEW YEAR! Thank you for reading! Take care and be well.

New Year's Resolutions

John Marine | December 30, 2017 | | | Be the first to comment!
To make next year special, resolve to do some things. New Year's resolutions are more like goals for the upcoming year. What can you work on in the new year to make the new year special? A lot of people invest in these resolutions to have some kind of game plan for the future and to live better. Some make a big deal about it; some others not so much. What do I think about New Year's resolutions?

New Year's Resolutions
^ picture credit from: politicsofpoverty.oxfamamerica.org - What are your resolutions for the new year? Should you have any?

To be honest, I don't care for New Year's resolutions because of commitment reasons and simply that simply because life screws your mind in so many ways that even the best laid plans ultimately fail. So one thing I've basically learned is to just live life. I am not saying to not have resolutions- just don't rely on them or bear any extreme importance on them. You can have as many resolutions as you like and try to commit to all of them as best as you can. Your life shouldn't be defined by having and relying on resolutions. You are not a failure just because you had planned on having New Year's resolutions and failing to live up to them or commit to them. It just means life got in the way of your best-laid plans to make a specific year better than you had planned. Sometimes, trying to set up New Year's resolutions only sets you up for failure. So those plans for you to lose weight and develop solid muscle in the new year means you will still have all of those extra pounds that could have been dropped long ago before dining on cheeseburgers and BBQ ribs. New Year's resolutions almost sometimes speak to the level of "oh, this person wants to lose weight. Let's rack his/her brain with thoughts and events to prevent those goals from coming true!" You can always teach yourself to stick to your New Year's resolutions and execute them; but really, and from my own experiences, don't put yourself through the trouble. Just live life and improvise when need be. Or just make that your resolution for the new year- to not have any specific resolution(s).

I am pretty sure this is not as popular an opinion regarding New Year's resolutions. Most of the opinions I make mostly are based on a lot of my own life experiences and a lot of what I have experienced. Take 2017 for instance. My mantra for 2017 was "make magic happen happier tomorrow." What this meant was that I wanted to be more productive while also being more positive and happy. Most of my execution was there... but life happened- I found myself rather depressed when Hurricane Harvey hit Houston, followed by my grandmother passing away months later as well as me having to be hospitalized. I didn't feel too happy in those times. So basically, I stopped caring about New Year's resolutions and just live life as best as I could. If it means I end up living my last days in this universe, then so be it. At least I lived as long as I could in making each waking moment matter. While I may have plans and visions for the new year, I don't RELY on resolutions to help me enjoy the new year.

But again- that's just me. To each his/her own.





Feel free to share and discuss.

Do you believe in New Year's resolutions?

Don't Let Your Failures Define You!

John Marine | December 26, 2017 | | | | Be the first to comment!
Don't let failure define you! While we all will fail at some point for whatever reason(s), we shouldn't let failures define us. If we let failure define us, then that is all we will be to others- failures. Disappointments. People who experience and have to live with being considered a failure are often perceived to fail in critical moments. Failure is not entirely a bad thing. In fact, making mistakes is a part of life. You learn to screw things up before ultimately getting better, granted you work to get over your mistakes. You only become successful when you learn from mistakes and work to limit such mistakes.

While some people are defined by their failures, the magnitude of failure(s) determine who are we to others. Some of us are failures to others because we made simple mistakes most people in their right mind wouldn't commit. Some others are failures for doing despicable and unforgivable acts (like murder or rape). Many people are defined for their successes and their good qualities, but it can sometimes be the failures and negatives that offer more concrete impressions about ourselves in the eyes of others. Those negatives could make some of us be thought of in a light different than how we want to be perceived. Some negatives can make role models and heroes seem like absolute fakes.

Regardless, you still can't let yourself be defined by your failures. Use failure as a means of making yourself a better person. We learn from our mistakes and make these opportunities to make ourselves better for the future. Maybe you should do the same if you let certain failures define you. Good luck in trying to make yourself better. And remember- you are NOT a failure. You can always be better even in your worst moments and in your darkest times. Do NOT let failure define you!

Here is a picture quote that may motivate you if you are facing these issues...

define failure
^ from: (Pinterest) - Do not let failure define you!

One website I came across in researching this topic offers some great advice to help you realize that your failures do not define you. Visit here if you are interested: Margie Warrell | Your Failures Don't Define You.

"All You're Ever Going to Be..."

John Marine | December 21, 2017 | | | Be the first to comment!
All you're ever going to be... is something less than what you actually are. No matter how much you try to improve and get in the good graces of others, you keep being downgraded and disrespected. Like you can be only SO good. Being talked about in this context makes you feel you can never be better than what you can be. Basically- why try to improve for someone who believes in you only so much? If you can be the highest elected official of your city or nation, at least be regarded and believed in at this specific level. At least believe in someone to that level to where someone can go above and beyond to be at their absolute best. But, no... some people only have so much faith in someone to where failure is inevitable. So in this case, why bother trying to encourage someone who isn't capable of so much encouragement? It nearly defeats the purpose of helping someone be their absolute best. If all ever someone is going to be is something less than what they are capable of or potentially capable of, knocking someone down to such a low level makes that person feel worthless.

Certain factors always get in the way as to someone being better. For example, someone may regard someone and believe in someone to do something successfully, but that one encouraging person thinks the one he/she is encouraging has a habit of not being able to complete tasks successfully or giving up in crucial moments. Everyone has their deficiencies. Surely I have not been perfect or successful doing things. However, I'd rather have my issues and shortcomings rather than have someone feel only so confident in my abilities. Someone can always push to be better; but if you are going to kick somebody down because they will ultimately fall short, then why try to encourage someone? If a teacher or a professor does not believe his/her students will learn lifelong lessons and make themselves better, then why would such people still give lectures and lessons? Why doesn't the teacher/professor just fail all of his/her students and move on with their lives? Would the coach of a sports team encourage his/her players to fail because that coach only thinks so much of that team and its players? If so, the players would have left a long time ago because they would hate to play to fail.

So where am I getting at here? Simple- everyone can improve to make themselves better. Do not talk about someone like they can only be SO good. When I look at certain people, I think they can be capable of great success. Reaching that great success is different for everyone. You at least need to have enough heart to believe in someone to where they can reach those great levels of success. People being encouraged do not have to be perfect or adept- they just need to perform like they are capable of almost anything. You can't do that when you keep thinking of people ultimately becoming failures. What is the point of encouraging someone when you think of and regard people as failures? So if you are going to encourage someone, help that person to realize what he/she is capable of. Make that person have to seek his/her greatest qualities to accomplish tasks rather than hate them for their flaws. If the goal is success and promise, give people a chance and let them work to become as successful as you think someone can be. If you think someone is ultimately going to fail, either change your expectations or do a better job helping someone become better. The world's problems are not going to solve themselves. You have some sort of influence to help make things better. Why not take advantage and build a relationship that will pay high dividends and make a difference? It's up to you...

These are all depressing thoughts, but it feels so terrible to only be given so much credit and only be given so much of a chance when we can be capable of so much more.

Kindness All Year

John Marine | December 17, 2017 | | | Be the first to comment!
Kindness should be all year- not just Christmas. Don't be nice to everyone just because it's Christmas time. Try being kind and respectful all year. Better kind all the time than being a jerk every other day. We don't need holidays to all of a sudden make us want to show kindness and respect to others. You know, don't just be nice just because it's one specific time of year. Almost as if to say it is one specific time where being respectful is mandatory. If you can make a difference in someone's life any time of year, go make it happen. Who cares what time it is or what time of year it is, and why should it affect when you should be kind and respectful? Speaking of making things happen, great for you if you can provide meals or gifts for others while it is Christmas. I salute everyone who tries to make times better for others- let alone during Christmas time.

All I am saying is... it is always great to show kindness. However, don't just be nice to others just because it is Christmas time. Try being respectful and kind all year long. Make yourself a better person by making life better for others. Make kindness an all-year deal, instead of just being kind one time of year and being a jerk every other time of year.

Boredom

Being bored is pretty normal. What happens, though, when you are trying NOT to be bored? Battling boredom can be simple or complicated. Whatever makes you bored can play how you fight out of it. If there is anything that can be done to help you feel motivated and excited again, you'll surely do whatever you can to make it happen. I'm glad you've taken time out of your day to visit "John's Life Space." Let me make it worth your while with this post.






Boredom


boredom
^ from: historytech.wordpress.com - Boooooring... Being bored can be unhealthy. So finding ways to battle boredom can help you feel better when life lacks excitement or intrigue.

What happens when you get bored? When you are bored, you simply just live in times where you have no reason to be happy or entertained. Looking at boring things or having boring experiences means you simply aren't enjoying life. While you are not sad or depressed, you are not very entertained either. What most people do (especially on social media) is simply post anything they want just to draw a reaction or make a release. While I don't condone posting anything completely random, if it helps you to battle boredom, go for it.

Boredom can stem from a number of sources. I felt overly bored and disappointed in 2016 during Christmas time because my family had a Christmas party. Keep in mind that this Christmas party was NOT on Christmas proper. During this time, I was basically told in the sense that I already know what I got for Christmas, so there was not much need to feel festive or surprised. It was one of the most boring Christmas times I can remember. The whole thing seemed boring as I felt disappointed. I admit I don't have true Christmas spirit- caring about things other than gifts, but I at least see Christmas as a joyous time of year. Even my old self should be able to have the same Christmas fun even in my youth.

So what is the takeaway from my previous paragraph? If you let certain things bore you, they will drive you up the wall and make you feel unable to enjoy life. Boredom can lead to depression if things fester. What you want to do is look for things to give you happiness and keep you entertained. It can be ANYTHING- even if it is something that isn't wholesome. The most important thing to do when battling boredom is to find things that make you happy and keep you entertained. Play for favorite video/computer games for a good while. Read your favorite book or magazine. Exercise. Anything that makes you happy is what you should be doing to battle boredom. Even at times, what you do to battle boredom still may not be enough. Just keep trying to come up with things to help save yourself from being bored. The more you feel entertained and engaged, the better you will feel about yourself and living. If you still feel bored after doing and thinking entertaining things, you may simply need to find some other activity or try harder not to get bored so easily.

Maybe this will help you out if you're dealing with boredom.
