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

New Vision, New Direction

Ok I don’t know about the direction part but for sure a new vision. After much consideration I decided to go with a new theme. Now I know it needs some work but the prospects are very promising with this theme as it allows better viewing on a mobile device and will allow me to become more creative. Continue reading

Our Worthless Congress

The only difference between death and taxes is that death doesn’t get worse every time Congress meets. — Will Rogers

Since February I have been threatening to write another blog, but I let life get in the way. Or maybe it was just apathy. Sometimes I just get confused, like members of Congress.

Anyway I used my health as an excuse for February and March, but it was just an excuse. After that I just never wrote. Which is my loss and my fault. But unlike Congress I own up to my undesire to excel. Continue reading

The Dream

“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” –  C.S. Lewis

It has been said by the many self-improvement experts that one should “dream big” in order to move ahead.

Well enough I suppose but there is a lingering question that never seems to get answered: How does one “dream big”? Continue reading

Values: Vision Part 1

Here are the values that I stand for: honesty, equality, kindness, compassion, treating people the way you want to be treated and helping those in need. To me, those are traditional values. — Ellen DeGeneres

In this installment of the Value series I want to discuss the value of vision and how it affects us as a nation.

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. If not poor, then living from paycheck-to-paycheck, always tight on money, always fearful that some issue may happen to upset the delicate balance of their life. Continue reading

Values: The Concept Part 1

All life demands struggle. Those who have everything given to them become lazy, selfish, and insensitive to the real values of life. The very striving and hard work that we so constantly try to avoid is the major building block in the person we are today. – Pope Paul VI

I’ve been doing a lot of research and study about values, what they are, how they affect us, and how they control us. Continue reading

Why the Tea Party Will Never Die

Political language… is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind. — George Orwell

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

The Greedy Rich

One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying. — Joan of Arc

Are you rich? If not you should be. This article isn’t about getting rich rather this article is addressed to those who are rich, those who have money already but feel that something is missing from their life. Continue reading
