Important Things # 22 ~ Be open to new ideas

Not everything is at it seems… sometimes they are better.  Sometimes they are not.  However unless you are willing to be open to new ideas – other than staying stuck in the same mentality you have about any given topic… you will not grow.

Not everything is beneficial to you.  However, it IS beneficial to keep an open willing mind to hear new ideas.  To hear another person’s thoughts and opinions.  Move on from having a teenager’s mind-set that you actually know it all!  LOL  Because you don’t.  You will thank the day that you grow up enough to listen to and respect the input of others.  Even if that input gave you no additional information…….. you at least gave that person the respect to hear, and that alone built them up, which means that you did a good thing.

I am thankful to my friends, family, and the numerous new people that step into my life – whether it be a cashier at a check-out counter, or if I make a new friend.  Everyone is valuable.  You know that you want and adore the times when another person or people are genuinely interested in you and your thoughts and input.  They may never use what you say, however the fact that they cared means much.  Besides, you never know what amazing nugget of gold you may actually receive!

I dare you!  Be open to new ideas today.

I am a very unique breed of person. If you ask my mother, she would say that I am a very old spirit who should have been born in the 40's or 50's. I love old womens' fashion...when women dressed like women! If you ask my daddy, he would say I am the biggest dressed up tom-boy he knows, who is way too into cars and climbing trees! I was a ballet dancer and choreography major in college until 20yrs old when I retired due to a neck injury. Besides still dancing through ballroom, latin & swing styles, my current passions are cars (seriously...I took 4 yrs of auto shop, and drool at the sound of a loud engine rumble!), fashion & interior design, and creating moments that last!

I love helping people find their strengths! Finding their happiness and their smile! (Everyone looks amazing when they smile!) I love showing people how to be genuinely happy by simply changing their mindsets and attitudes. I do these things in as many ways as I can, using many mediums. As well showing people how they too can do something they may not have thought they could. there's a will, there's a way!

I am a mother of two (2) amazing children, who make my life beyond blessed, and I always do my best for them. I love to spend as much time with them as I can and want them always to be learning... I am very proud of them! And, GOD comes first & foremost in my life!!!

I am...
Sonya Mae aka SheIdealist
