The Only Constant is Change

The Christmas lights are down. The tree is put away. The New Year’s Eve parties are over. The season is at a close. People are going back to work and vacation time is over. Our son has returned to his home, and the empty nest syndrome fills our lives… Again. Time is moving on and with it changes are happening.

Everything changes, there is no exception so deal with it no matter how painful.

On the personal side this holiday season has been rather difficult for us as a family. Early in December my wife fell and broke her leg just below the knee. We are dealing with the situation and will for several months. At our age bones don’t heal as fast so we have to be careful. Talk about a change, our lives changed in a second, the moment she fell off that step ladder.

Our son came home to help take care of his mother but life is life and he had to get back to work. Our daughters live in the area so they are always here, but our son lives in Nevada, ever since California kicked him out with AB5. (California destroyed a lot of lives with AB5 and now with the $20.00 an hour minimum wage the politicians have destroyed even more lives. Another change for the worse which only benefits the unions and politicians.)


As 2024 moves ahead we are going to see a lot more changes. Most of them will be on the negative side and will probably make your blood boil. I’m expecting it, so I won’t be surprised when it happens. Cannot say the same for many others who don’t even think about the future or what it will bring. I imagine getting laid off because of $20.00 an hour was not what many expected to happen. This change is a classic example of Cause and Effect, which I will discuss in another post and have discussed previously.

In the meanwhile expect to see a lot of negative political issues. People who want to destroy this country are trying their best to complete their task only to find out the push back is more than they imagined. These people see their evil plans for world domination falling apart and they realize their power, their money, their way of life is about to go the way of the Dodo bird.

They see themselves backed into a corner with no way out. Their only recourse is to lash out, call names, push cancel culture, and threaten companies and organizations with empty rhetoric.

These evil spawn will never disappear, the only thing we can do is manage their deadly way of life and keep them buried under the rocks from whence they came. And we are more than capable of doing it.

We will suffer pain, a lot of it, before this mess is corrected. I take comfort in the fact their days are numbered and the evil change they are inflecting upon the good people of this planet will soon be over. The only question is how long we have to endure the agony.

How do I know this? History tells us, it teaches us, and empowers us. The dictators of the past met their demise and thus the dictators of today will follow suit. The human determination for freedom is overpowering and shall never be extinguished. This the Founding Fathers knew all too well, which is why we have a Constitution which guides our country and our lives.


While change is normally associated with the bad, change can also be good, and powerful. I have discovered in my 70+ years on this rotating ball of dirt that change is about 85% attitude and 15% physical. How one responds to change is the main issue.

If your attitude (i.e. response) is bad, your experience is bad. If your attitude is positive your experience is positive, for the most part. If your attitude is indifferent then your experience will probably be indifferent. Same ole, same ole, or so you tell yourself.

There are always exceptions to everything and change is no different. The bottom line is your attitude, a subject we have discussed before and will discuss again.

In summary, change is coming and you can’t stop it. All you can do is roll with the punches. Those punches may be hard and heavy or weak and ineffective. You really won’t know until it affects you. And affect you it will, in fact you can count on it.

Cancel Culture and Christmas

And know that I am with you always; yes, to the end of time. – Jesus Christ

The cancel culture crowd is once again showing their colors. These people actually believe they have the power to cancel Christmas, a move that has been going on for a very long time. And each time it has failed.

Change – The Only Constant

There is nothing permanent except change. — Heraclitus

Now is the time for change, a small change, a big change, many changes. Whatever it may be change is the only constant.

To that end you may notice the blog has changed appearance. As much as I liked the old style it has come to my attention that a change is required. That is something I should have learned at the beginning of this year. I had many plans for this blog then, back in January 2022, but they got waylaid when I came down with covid.

Years End

Government Help

Our government help

Goodbye 2021. You weren’t as bad as 2020 but you still posed problems, problems politicians took advantage of.

As 2022 approaches political fear is the watchword of the day. But… I have a feeling 2022 is going to be full of surprises for the political class. Surprises they are not going to like.

Decisions We Make

Success is simply a matter of luck. Ask any failure. – Earl Wilson

I know better, but I don’t do better. I know I should write more. I know I should blog more. I know I should exercise more. I know I should work on myself more. But I don’t. Continue reading

Making It Count

Force always attracts men of low morality. – Albert Einstein

How does one make their life count? What does it mean when someone says “make it count”?

These are a couple of questions one needs to ponder in today’s world. When I look at what is happening to the country, what we are turning into, I have to wonder why. Where is the universe taking us and what is it trying to teach us?

The answer is simple: The universe is telling us we make our own life. Which means we have a lot of control over our destiny. We become what we want to become, we become what we think about. Continue reading

Conflicts to Come

People like to say that the conflict is between good and evil. The real conflict is between truth and lies. – Don Miguel Ruiz

As 2019 arrives so does the coming disruption of life. With a split Congress it is fairly certain that not much will get done over the next two years. Which means that you are on your own – finally. Continue reading

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
