The Final Destination



Always galloping-

trying to reach the destination.

Often turning corners-

attempting to make the journey at ease.

Stepping high, taking quick strides,

and speed trotting-

but it seems at times,

moving forward is like moving backwards.

Gaining speed is like moving too slow.

You’re always aiming to get there,

always trying to get it right,

always thinking limiting all

the wrongs would work.

But whether it’s all in stride,

running free, or lagging behind-

keeping it moving,

reaching the end

 is always a few miles away-

getting there is the race.

Spring Forward


Spring is fast approaching.

Daylight savings time is near.

Pollen, allergens, all are signs of Spring

in the air.

Busy bees, insects, and pests

are moving about with prominence.

The signs of life are prevalent,

and all are indicators life moves on

and move forward.

So, get into the flow and spring forward!

Renew, rejuvenate, replenish,

and restore if you must.

Whatever you do,

come alive!


and propel your dreams.

It’s your life.

Spring forward!

A Salute to Bloggers


Bloggers do not always get their deserved recognition for providing others resourceful information. Not only are bloggers creative, they are unselfish, dedicated, passionate, visionaries, and motivators. Many are from various walks of life. They generally do not allow their cultural difference whether philosophical, political, or religious to affect the way they demonstrate transparency, candor, vulnerability, honesty, un-bias perspective, and wisdom.

Whenever time allows, take a little more time in a supportive effort to show appreciation, spotlight, comment on, or inform others of a noteworthy blog or writer you admire. After all, in the blogging community we are all in this together. We share a common cause and are inter-related more than we realize.

This year, I am trying something fresh and new. I will occasionally spotlight others, share some of my favorite blogs, provide informative information I’ve researched, explore other writing styles, and challenge my writing capabilities in ways not yet explored.

I’m reaching new levels and broadening my vision. Like Jabez, I’m claiming new territories in 2017. I’m aiming toward endless possibilities!

Believe in Yourself!


As I’ve become older and more self-reflective, I’ve learned there are differences in self-centeredness than self-reflection. Wisdom reveals  growth. One must possess open-mindedness and the ability to embrace a different perspective without bias.

In other words, one should possess a healthy perspective of life and purpose. Achieve a comfortable place where success is measured by a sense of self-accomplishment not resulting from the standards of others.

Do you have any goals or dreams bigger than yourself? Well, you should. Some goals and dreams are achievable and others are in the category of things desired but not achieved in the present moment.

What stops us from achieving our goals? One of the reasons, we lack belief in our ability.  Yes, we may miss the mark sometimes, but we can always strive to aim at the target.

Years ago I heard an instructor say, and I’ll paraphrase, “children think they can and learn they can’t.” This statement is a powerful revelation. It’s true, generally children are  fearless about their abilities with minimal reservations about their inabilities. Later, they are trained and taught their boundaries.

Well, like eager children, we must return to the natural child-like inner knowing “we can” and resist the hesitation “we can’t.” Let’s start believing in our potential again.

Believe in Yourself! Pursue your passion, dreams, and goals!

Today commemorate a milestone for me in a career move. It is another step in the right direction.  Milestones, what are stay? They are really reminders we have moved forward in achieving goals and aspirations. They’re not the finish line.  They’re markers.


For who are milestones? They’re for us. They remind us with persistence and determination we’ve the fortitude to accomplish what we start and go beyond.  Milestones, are they necessary?  Not really. Living life in the moment is a major occurrence, but it’s  nice looking back at them and seeing hurdles we’ve gotten over. It’s nice knowing the ones we’ll face are only stepping stones.
