It's All About You.

What's up once again people? It's your main man Brad H. coming back at you again with another edition of "Brad H's Perspective". As always, I want to thank everyone who takes out the time to check out these posts and have left positive feedback. It's always great to know that there are people out there who embrace and appreciate positive thinking. Before I get into this week's discussion, I want to give a shout out to a friend of mine in the Philippines named Marie. She has a blog titled "Lets Inspire", and a few weeks back, she invited me to contribute a post to her blog. You can find her blog here at this web address http://www.lets-inspire.com/. I felt honored that she asked for my input, and I'm even more honored that she invited me to contribute regularly based on the first blog post I had written. Gotta love how the Internet connects like-minded people from all walks of life. Anyway, check out her blog if you're able to. Alright this week's post is "All About You".

What do I mean when I say "It's All About You"? I mean that your life is all about you; literally. I was having a discussion with some friend's of mine last week, and we were talking about how people are always going to have something to say about you. It doesn't matter how good or bad of a person you may be, people will always have an opinion regarding you. Whether you're doing too much, or not doing enough, people will always find something to say about what you're doing, or what you're not doing. You can be the most popular person in the world, or you can keep yourself isolated from others, people are going to find something to say about it. The bottom line is that there is no way around it, people are going to talk about you. Guess what though; It doesn't even matter! All that matters is how you view your own life. It's all about you.

A lot of us get caught up in that frame of mind of worrying about what others think of us. Some people allow it to consume them to the point where they try living up to what others think. Now it's natural and quite normal to worry about what others think to an extent. Just because people talk and have an opinion, doesn't mean that it's always bad. When someone compliments or says something nice to us, it definitely has a way of changing our perceptions for the better. However, no matter whether opinions of others are positive or negative, they shouldn't determine nor play the final factor in deciding how you view yourself. You are the only person who has to be happy and content with who you are, so how you view yourself all depends upon you. Think about it like this. There are 24 hours in a day right? No matter who is around you or for how long, you're going to spend all of those hours with yourself regardless. In a way you can say that you're stuck with yourself, so you might as well focus on what you think rather than others.

So to sum it all up, just remember that it's your life, and it is all about you. Let people say whatever they want about you. You can't stop them from talking, but you have complete control over how you choose to react. A good portion of the people who say negative things about you aren't going to confront you about it, so try not to sweat it too much. Well that's all for this edition of "Brad H's Perspective". Thanks again to everyone for the continued love and support. I definitely got more ideas churning in my head, and more content coming. Be sure to stay tuned. Remember that none of us are perfect, and that many of us are a work in progress. The idea with this blog is not to judge or criticize, but to motivate myself and others as well. Till next time, Brad H out!

It Will All Pass Eventually.

What's going on people? It's ya man Brad H coming back at you once again with another edition of "Brad H's Perspective". Like I mention always, thanks a lot for tuning in. It's been a couple of weeks since I wrote an original blog post. Last week was my godmother's birthday, so her and other family members came into town to celebrate. We had a great time overall. I'm now looking forward to Thanksgiving this year. We had a great one last year, and I'm hoping this next one will be even better. Alright enough of all that, it's time to get into this weeks discussion. I'm titling it; "It Will All Pass Eventually".

Bad news, bad incidents, and troubles are all a part of life. There is no way of getting out or around it. Any person that is alive and under the sun, is bound to have bad things happen from time to time. Often times we may receive bad news, or get hit with something negative. It's only natural for something bad happening to change our moods a bit. I mean you can be having a great day, and then someone can come along and ruin it for you. Now being that we're all different and react to things differently, I'm not suggesting that everyone allows others to ruin their mood. Some people have extremely thick skin, and don't let anything or anyone affect how their day is going. However, no matter how tough a person is or claims to be, everyone has a breaking point in life.

No matter how hard times get or how bad things tend to be, just know that it will all pass over eventually. None of us can control what anyone says or thinks about us. However, we can control how we choose to react. You can either let bad things and what others say get to you and break you down, or you can choose to let it roll off of your shoulder. Pain is a part of life, but it doesn't have to control and dictate your life. Things may hurt or bother us for sometime, but they will eventually pass if you're open to moving forward. I had a conversation with my godmother's husband a few months back, and we were discussing a serious topic. He said something to me that has stuck with me since that conversation. He said something along the lines of "It's okay to cry tonight, but it's all about what you do tomorrow." Pretty wise words if you ask me.

So the bottom line is that we need to keep our minds and hearts open to moving on. Life is all about progressing, so we gotta do what we need to in order to keep moving forward. So to everyone that got fed some negativity today, or may be having a lot of bad things happening now, it will all pass eventually. Just remember keep your head up, and try to keep a positive outlook. Like that old saying goes; "Tough times don't last, tough people do". Well that's it for this edition of "Brad H's Perspective". Remember that no one is perfect, and we're all human beings. Uplifting and encouraging one another is the way to go. That's exactly what I'm trying to do with this blog. More content is on the way, so stay tuned. Thanks for tuning in, and we'll see you in the next post. Peace!

NFL Fantasy Football 2012: League Basics, and Week 1 in Review.

NFL Fantasy Football 2012: League Basics, and Week 1 in Review.

What up people? It's ya boy Brad H. coming at you once again. It's been a couple of weeks since I've last posted. There has been quite a bit going on, so I haven't been updating. At any rate, things are fairly back to normal now. I'm super late with this particular post. Anyone who knows me, knows that I play fantasy sports year round. My favorite fantasy game to play is fantasy football. I decided that I was going to do weekly reviews on how I perform in the various leagues that I'm playing in. We're already in week 7 of the NFL season, so I got a lot of catching up to do with the updating.

This is the first article that I wrote regarding fantasy football. It's a review of the leagues that I'm playing in, and a review of the first week. I'm writing these articles though Hubpages, so feel free to click on them and check them out. I'll be putting the others up as soon as I'm able to. I'll be hitting you all with a regular blog posting sometime this week. Well I'm out, so thanks for tuning in.
