You Never Know…….

You never know the impact you may have on the life of a child. A rightly spoken word or a timely action, could literally, alter a child’s life. As we shift from adolescent to adult, as the years go by, most of us tend to lose the innocence, the beauty, and the purity of childhood. […]

Chop The Tree

The axe is clean.  The axe has been sharpened.  It is ready for use.  I take my axe, and set out to find the largest tree.  No one is around.  The sky is clear, pure blue.  The sun shines brightly, the heat is intense.  I stand shirtless, axe in hand, focused on the task before […]

Rebuild #2

A little over two years ago, I was discharged from the Navy.  At that time, I came out of boot camp fat, and out of shape.  I very rarely find myself in this type of physical state.  I hate it.  It’s not me, who I am, or who I want to be.  Before I shipped […]

Detach

Remove yourself from your feelings and emotions.  Step outside of yourself in order to think, see, and hear clearly.  Too often, we are lost in ourselves.  Lost in our feelings, emotions, anxieties, fears, and sorrows.  Too often, we can’t get past the inner self, in order to accomplish the tasks to reach our full potential.  […]

Fake

There are a lot of fake people in this world.  Fake in what they say, fake in what they do, and fake in how they portray themselves.  It’s pathetic.  People are trying to be something or someone in order to gain some kind of recognition.  In order to gain some sort of financial backing.  In […]

Change

One of the most difficult endeavors in life is change.  Naturally, none of us likes change.  Our mind wants to live life on auto-pilot.  Our mind will fight to keep us on cruise-control.  Doing the same things, the same way, over and over again, day in and day out.  Our mind will fight for routine, […]

Held Back

I will not be held back.  I will not be held back.  I will not be held back.  I will not be held back.  I will not be held back by my fear.  I will not be held back by the fear of what other’s may think about me.  I will not be held back […]

You Don’t Know

You don’t know, if you don’t try.  You will never know, if you never attempt.  Allow yourself to try.  Allow yourself to attempt.  Allow yourself to fail.  Allow yourself to succeed.  Allow yourself to learn.  Allow yourself to grow, mature, and become better.  Allow yourself to be vulnerable.  Real.  Raw.  Authentic.  What burns inside of […]

The Crowd

When you follow the crowd, you die by the crowd.  Is it important to have connection with others?  I believe so.  We need connection.  We need interaction with others.  We need community.  But, we also need to be cautious.  We need to be aware.  We need to know who we are as an individual.  Otherwise, […]
