Wednesday Motivational – Have No Regrets

All of us have differences of opinions at times.  We get into arguments with one another.  We get angry.  We say things sometimes that later we wish we hadn't said.  Or maybe things that actually needed to be said but weren't well-received and we've upset someone else. That's just how life

Wednesday Motivational – You Be You

For many years, most of my life actually, I lived in fear.  I don't mean fear of physical danger or anything like that.  But fear of what others thought or felt about me.  Fear of what friends and family expected from me. Fear of what I thought of myself also, if

Wednesday Motivational – Deal With It

Life is hard.  That's never going to change.  That's just life. I've been dealing with a lot of things lately.  Some good, but mostly bad.  They've gotten me down.  I've had a difficult time with certain issues lately. But I've dealt with it. If I hadn't, it would have been much more difficult. Deal

Wednesday Motivational – Part 3

"The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows.  It's a very mean and nasty place.  And I don't care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently....  If you let it." "You, me or nobody, is gonna hit as hard as life.  But it

Wednesday Motivational – Part 2

FAIL BIG. Don't be afraid to fail big. If you're not failing, you're not trying. Nothing in life is worthwhile, unless you take risks.

Wednesday Motivational – Part 1

I've been listening and reading a lot of motivational things lately.  I won't go into the details of why. This particular one is Les Brown speaking. You've probably never heard of him, but he's a pretty amazing guy.  I hope to meet him someday. He had a very difficult life in his upbringing. 

Wednesday Motivational – Take A Chance On You

Wednesday Motivational – What If You Could?

Don't ever let anyone tell you that you can't do something.  They don't know you as well as you know you. If you believe you can do it, then go do it. Let me tell you all a quick story... When I first started High School my freshman year, we had to meet

Wednesday Motivational – Remember The Hard Times

Life is always going to give you some difficult stuff to deal with from time to time.  Yours, mine, everyone's.  And some is more difficult than others.  Just depends on what day it is. Some folks I know try to avoid that aforementioned "difficult stuff" and hope it goes away.  And

Wednesday Motivational – How Ya Living?

I very reluctantly listened to this speech. I didn't expect to be moved to tears by this one.  But I was. I'm not going to make any commentary.  But this is a great speech.  Please......Listen to it. - Next week will be the last of this series.  I bet some of you can guess

With the NFL Season approaching, you jerkweeds have had a lot of kontent this week.  So I pushed this back until midday today. - When No One Is Watching I've had a difficult go recently.  In many ways.  But the reasons don't matter.  And I don't have illusions.  Many people have it worse
