P1010243Have you ever felt the need to challenge yourself?  Of course you have felt that way before.  Well, for me, I more than feel to do so, I intend to give a challenge a shot.  Today, I prepare to embark on a new journey, one that will allow me to explore new life’s possibilities.  A great level of curiosity is what I intend to take with me to that new “classroom” of life.

To attempt anything new requires that we utilize a level of curiosity.  As if contradictory to this, the famous adage that “curiosity killed the cat” comes rushing through my mind with a plan to sabotage my new enthusiasm.  Thinking aloud I shout to the top of my voice, – “Oh thief of fear and doubt, get the heck out of here.”  This thief forgets that I am aware of the other adage that “Cats have nine lives”?  It is with this knowledge of “nine-lives” that I am going to press on toward my new challenge.   Continue reading

How I wish reason could marry reality,
After all, life’s unfolding needs a wife. Continue reading

Still I am happy that I assisted in its most difficult stages, and then in its easiest stage.

It made me think that, life sometimes behaves like a major puzzle. Continue reading

Often we try to live an upbeat life, one where we feel like we are on top of the world, in a place where we can soar above life’s tragedies as if we’re untouchable. Then, you wonder, how realistic is that? You live in a place where everyone around you seems well adorned – they’ve got it all plus more. So you ask yourself, what is wrong with me? Why can’t I be like these people? Why it is my life is so much on the downturn? Can this be fair? Life sometimes sucks at such times. I mean isn’t that the phrase often used in an effort to describe “life”? Many circumstances give us that final determination. One famous predicament is in times when we try to be accepted by people who never will appreciate us. Too often we try to belong in places where belonging is a foreign word. The only choice we have really is to dig deep, and start belonging to ourselves. Continue reading
