Dare to Dream

Dare to Dream

A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work. – Colin Powell Do you dare to dream? To make your life better and achieve something of importance? I think we all do, in fact I know we all do. The question then becomes do we follow our dreams or not? Life is built on dreams, always has been, always will be. And when those dreams become goals our life, our world changes. Dreams can be…

New Vision, New Direction

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. Now to be honest I really liked my last theme but times change and so does technology. I needed something that could…

Our Worthless Congress

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…

Amazed

Amazed

I transcend earthly bounds. I never cease to amaze myself because I haven’t yet found my limits. I am quite ready to accept the limits of what I can do, but every time I feel that way – boom! – God touches me and I do something that’s even more stupendous than whatever I’ve done up to then. — Don King I am constantly amazed at everything life throws at us. I never really thought about it until recently and…

Meaningless

Meaningless

Anyone who thinks they’re important is usually just a pompous moron who can’t deal with his or her own pathetic insignificance and the fact that what they do is meaningless and inconsequential. – William Thomas As I look around at the chaos I can’t help but wonder why these people don’t have a life. The answer becomes very obvious: They don’t know how to have a life. All they can engage in is a meaningless existence. An existence of their…

Within

Within

The mind is everything. What you think you become. – Buddha One of the basis of self-improvement is the ability to “see” within. So what exactly does that mean and why do I even want to concern myself with it? Ok, fair enough, good questions and ones that I have even asked myself from time-to-time. So let us answer them. The mind is a powerful object and one we are just now beginning to really understand. Now I want to…

Moving the Universe

Moving the Universe

Look at the sky. We are not alone. The whole universe is friendly to us and conspires only to give the best to those who dream and work. — A. P. J. Abdul Kalam There are universal laws which govern the movement of the universe, laws created by intelligence greater than us. We often call this intelligence God. I also use the term Divine Providence, which, for me, includes the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. Related posts: Amazed…

Getting There

Getting There

Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it. – Kevyn Aucoin Sometimes we get confused, well me, I get confused all the time. Which got me to thinking about my future, my goals, and my dismal success record. Well I…

The Dream

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”? Now in defense of the self-improvement experts, they don’t know you or me personally so they must stay generic in their words….

A New Year

A New Year

Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering, ‘It will be happier.’ — Alfred Lord Tennyson As we bid farewell to 2016 I find myself looking forward to 2017. Then I found myself asking a question: What is there about a new year which changes us, often affects us, and sometimes leaves us full of dread? On the calendar, January 1st is just another day. In the life of the planet the sun rises and sets like…
