A New Day, A New Perspective

Month: August 2012

Quote 8-29-2012

“I’ve been getting rid of some clutter, anything that doesn’t serve a positive purpose in my life and making room for things that feel happy to me.  Because I get to make my life whatever I want it to be.  I get to make the room feel however I want it to feel.  I get… Read More ›

Passing Judgment

Passing judgment, we all have been guilty of this at some point in our lives.  I think one time I know I was most guilty had to do with a book signing that happened with Robert Schuller back when I worked at B.

Trip Back in Time

I remembered a conversation I had with my dad when I was about eight years old last night.  It was a warm summer day and daddy had been working on the car all afternoon.  He was in the backyard and scrubbing the grease off his hands using the water hose.  I had been playing on the swing… Read More ›

Keep Going

“A lot of people give up just before they’re about to make it. You know you never know when that next obstacle is going to be the last one.”  – Chuck Norris

Monday Smile

“I think it would be cool if you were writing a ransom note on your computer, if the paper clip popped up and said, ‘Looks like you’re writing a ransom note. Need help? You should use more forceful language, you’ll get more money.”  – Demetri Martin


Making Your Mark

What are you doing?  It’s a simple question really and one most people answer by telling what they are doing at the moment, so let me ask it another way..  Michelangelo painted the Sistine Chapel and left us sculptures that are with us still.  Leonardo DaVinci was a great inventor, wild dreamer, and painter of many… Read More ›
