Ain’ That The Truth

Some sayings I see hit the nail on the head on how I’m feeling. 

Thought of the Day

Saw this posted by a friend on Facebook and wanted to share it. 

Not sure why my mind has been spinning around so much lately. Too many things that I’m trying to grasp and understand. 


Not sure what I need to do to get myself centered again.  I wish I had someone to tell all my thoughts to, but I would probably scare them away. 

Until then, I’ll take a deep breathe and take one step at a time.

Hello Josh! 

Blessed


This past week, I was having a “Pity Party” for myself. I was questioning my value of an employee and compared by myself with others and it made me sad… mad… and confused. 

Why did they pick me? Why does so and so get everything and I don’t? When will I get what I’m worth? 

But after talking to a friend about it, he made me realize that I am valued as an employee and that my skills and experience are the reason I am where I am right now. He also Le me know, as a person, I am valued as a friend.

So after hearing this, I was able to take a step back and realized that things happen for a reason, my time will come and I am truly blessed. 

I may not be rich or be the perfect person that people want, but I am blessed. I have  he richness of knowing that there are people out there that value me as a person, a friend. And at the end, that is how I want to be remembered. 

So the next time I have a “Pity Party”, I will not compare myself to others and count my blessings. There is a reason things play out like they do. There is a reason I am not picked for a job, a reason why I’m not with that person. 

I am thankful for all I have and blessed to have the people that are in my life. I am where I need to be and have the people that I need in my life. I just need to enjoy the journey and things that should happen will happen. 

Make it a great weekend.

Hello Josh!

It’s Been A While

Well, life has been a little crazy these past couple of weeks. Work is getting a little bit more busy (which is a good thing), stuff is happening in my life  (car problems, planning a trip…) and thinking of certin people. I’ve been lazy on posting on my blog.

Here are some things that have happened, quotes/sayings and pictures that I’ve seen posted.

R.I.P. Muhammad Ali

Well, half way through 2016 and we have lost some great people in the entertainment world and sporting world.

On June 3, 2016, Muhammad Ali, past away at the age of 74.

Muhammad Ali (born Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr., January 17, 1942 – June 3, 2016) was an American professional boxer, widely regarded as one of the greatest and most significant sporting figures in history. From early in his career, Ali was known as an inspiring, controversial and polarizing figure both inside and outside the ring.
(From Wikipedia.com)

He was a larger-than-life person who followed his own path.

One of many memories I have of Muhammed Ali is from the 1997 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta.

image

On July 19, 1996, Ali emerged as the final torch bearer at the Atlanta Olympic Opening Ceremony, lighting the cauldron for the Centennial Games. It’s one of the many indelible images of the great Ali.

While I was reading the posts on Facebook and the post of Twitter, I was amazed at all the quotes by Muhammad Ali.

Here are some of them.

Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.

He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.

Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.
He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.

The man who views the world at 50 the same as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life.

Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.

I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was.

Age is whatever you think it is. You are as old as you think you are.

Hating people because of their color is wrong. And it doesn’t matter which color does the hating. It’s just plain wrong.

R.I.P. Muhammad Ali… The Greatest, The Champions, The Louisville Lip.

May your actions and words live on forever.

Words To Live By

I got some news the other day from the doctors and I had all weekend to process it. 

It wasn’t what I was expecting, but it’s something that I need to deal with and take care of. 

So I remembered the Serenity Prayer and thought I would say it to myself when I need a little boost. 

Make it a great day!
