In the Midst of Challenges

God has delivered to me some of my life's greatest challenges over the past five years.  I have experienced what it feels like to be down on my luck.  In the midst of my challenges, the Holy Spirit bestowed upon me some of my life's greatest accomplishments.  Keep your eyes open and aware.  Do not fear life's perceived roadblocks, instead welcome them with opportunity for growth and be thankful when the universe delivers you into a place of calm.

This Is The Moment That Matters

Cherish each moment of your life.  This is easier said than done and rarely are any of us successful at it all the time.  However, it is so critical for us to get refocused on what is important.  We always hear the cliches', "Live for today!", "Live like your dying", "Be in the moment", "There are no tomorrows".

While these are all true, the hustle and bustle of every day life can simply get in the way.  If it is has been awhile since you have seen an old friend, shared a hug, connected with family, taken a walk in the woods, enjoyed the laughter of a child, played like a kid again, loved with reckless abandon, watched a sunset, enjoyed the quiet of the night, counted your blessings, then let this be your moment now to make that happen.

It doesn't take long and the good it will do for your soul will outweigh the time invested.  The reality is.... there really only is this moment.  I always say this recurring statement to my Dad.  "One hundred years from now it all won't matter anyway, so let's enjoy this moment and forget about our worries."

Where have you gone Joe DiMaggio?

Why is it so important for us to always give it our best?  I think Joe DiMaggio exemplified it in his profound statement.  He was asked, "Joe, why do you always play so hard."  His reply, "Because there is always some kid who may be seeing me for the first time. I owe him my best."  We are all role models to children.  When in a child's presence be a good example.  Remember they are always watching and listening.

The Life You Lead

If you think you can, do. If you think you might, try. If you are scared, prepare. If you stumble, slowdown. If you fall, get-up. If you wish you would, accomplish it. If you have, rejoice. If you can, teach. If you know, share. ...Live life free of limitations. Live as if tomorrow may never arrive. Give of yourself freely. Most of all, be proud of the life you lead.

The Steps of Courage

Courage is not the absence of fear. Courage is the ability to act when fear grips you the hardest. Courage is taking action when sitting idle is the easy choice. Courage lifts you out, while fear holds you down. Courage saves lives, while fear destroys them. Where do we find courage? God delivers it through faith. It is our job to execute. ...one COURAGEOUS step at a time!

A Kind of Kind

The kind of kind we choose is either selfless or selfish. One perspective is riddled with agendas the other is packed full of compassion with no agenda for the outcome.

Still Smiling

The reality of life for me is that I am deserving of nothing.  Good things happen to bad people and bad things happen to good people and it will continue to happen long after we are gone.  We just have to embrace that life is an experience.  We are not ever defined by a single moment. No matter how bad that moment is.  Some people spend their whole lives focusing on the negatives, and guess what they get?  Get a person's mind wrapped around the positive, and they will conquer any challenging situation with a head up and when it is all done, still be smiling :-)

Encourage and Love

Always do your best to leave someone in a better place than when you met them.  Encourage as often as you can.  Choose your words with precision.  Most importantly, all people need to be loved, love freely.

Reading is a passion of mine.  I, not unlike many young people hated reading in my youth.  Now I appreciate reading so much more because of the practical application and intellectual expansion it offers.  In the future I will post books that I have either read or am currently reading.  One of my favorites is:
