Changes and 2019

The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward. – Amelia Earhart

As 2018 comes to a close I look back and see just how little I did with my blog, and my website. I let life get in the way of the really important elements of existence. At any rate I will not let small issues interfere with my goals as they have changed for the better. Continue reading

Denying Reality

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word. — Martin Luther King, Jr.

This election has proven to be very interesting in more ways than one. First let me be very up front with this: I voted for Donald Trump. I support him and I believe in him. Continue reading

Values: The Concept Part 2

Life’s up and downs provide windows of opportunity to determine your values and goals. Think of using all obstacles as stepping stones to build the life you want. — Marsha Sinetar

Previously on GPMCC – Values:

We of the human race are dreamers. But some are doers.

Some are content to dream, but never do while others not only dream, but do. Those that do often become rich while those that only dream continue to live in their dream world and remain stagnant, and often poor.

As we approach this political season, the midterm elections, I find that I am inundated by lies, more lies, and every type of lie conceived by a politician. But I think the most egregious lie concerns the so-called Tea Party. Of which I admit I am one. Continue reading

Being Different

Learning to live what you’re born with is the process, the involvement, the making of a life. — Diane Wakoski

Are you different? Some of you may say yes, some say no, and the rest… well the rest don’t know what to think. Rest assure, you are different, each and every one of you. Continue reading

A Thanksgiving Wish

If a nation expects to be ignorant and free in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be. –Thomas Jefferson

What does Thanksgiving mean to you? Is it just a reason to have turkey? You can have turkey any day of the week, so why is Thanksgiving so special? Is it just an excuse for a day off? Just a regular holiday? Or could it be something more, much more. Continue reading

At the Mercy of…

Do for yourself or do without – Gaylord Perry

Do you feel like you are being manipulated, controlled, and told what to believe and what not to believe? Join the club. So, what is the truth? What is the lie? Can I trust the main stream media? Who can I trust? Why are gas prices so high? Why am I unemployed? Why is my life in the toilet? Why is my country in the toilet? Why do I feel like crap? Continue reading
