living: DONT PLAY HIDE AND SEEK WITH LIFE BE FOUND - 05/05/13 06:40 AM
Remember the game...? Sure you do. A most excellent adventure and it costs nothing. The thrill of trying to hide while someone is counting down. The additional thrill of staying still and not attracting any attention. Finally, the seeker gives up and you have won the game only you don't know it. You hid so well, no one can find you WHERE WERE YOU....? WE LEFT WITHOUT YOU So it is with life. To hold things in, to go into yourself and...... not come back is..... not a good journey. You don't get to get out there and experience life to (14 comments)
living: BELIEVING WITHOUT SEEING IS CALLED - 04/24/13 02:21 PM
It is called faith which simply put is to believe without seeing. Believe what you may ask? Life is a mystery and we keep trying to make it as predictable as possible. Why not just live it? Those that succeed in making life into a formula are not happy with the results. I know of people who have made a good living through traditional means but remain unhappy and not fulfilled. LIFE IS MORE THAN SURVIVAL They may have succeeded in maintaining a safe and reliable life with the traditional food, shelter and clothing in place, but remain poor in other (3 comments)
living: WHATS THAT SOUND IN AND AROUND MY HOME - 04/23/13 02:20 PM
When I first moved into my present abode......I had to become familiar with all the sounds that accompany the home. I am a light sleeper and will awaken to a foreign noise or something that is not quite right. It probably is linked to caveman DNA from a lion prowling around camp. I hear things and I need to know just what they are. My wife takes full advantage of this and sleeps deep knowing I am monitoring HOUSE SPEAK
There are some parts of the house that give off sounds as you walk through them. You can easily tell (7 comments)
living: WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? - 04/19/13 07:16 AM
Who do you think you are has come up for me on many occasions but that is not the question. The true question is..Who do you think you are. There is no greater peace or contentment to be found at any price when one knows who they are, where they came from and where they are going and more compelling ...what they should be doing between now and then..It is called your purpose WHO ARE YOU This subject should haunt you, disturb you or beckoning you softly but firmly with the intent of awakening you to your potentials. Remember those type (6 comments)
living: WHAT CAN WE EXPECT IN REAL ESTATE 2013 - 01/02/13 08:52 AM
Whatever takes place, we can be assured that the Real Estate industry is alive and vibrant. That was and is a good way to exit one year and start another. We have strong reports of lack of inventory, multiple bidding, low interest rates and talk of appreciate in many parts of the country. WELL LOOKY HERE Even new construction has raised its head up and is looking around for a foot hold too. What stands out for many people after living through this last year is what to do and what not to do and it is very plain and clear (2 comments)
living: STRESS CAN HELP OR HINDER - 08/20/12 03:30 PM
Circumstances can produce a stress and that could be a good or a bad thing depending on how you respond. There are positive stresses that when harnessed... do good things. The stress applied to the wings of a bird causes it to lift off and fly. We took that stress and created flying machines. There is also a stress that gravity puts on the ocean that keeps the shores coming and going consistently BATTLE GROUND THE BODY Stress can also kill because we do not handle it correctly. Most of the time humans tend to hold it in or mis-handle it causing it to grow into something (8 comments)
living: THE SIMPLICITY OF IT ALL - 07/24/12 06:55 AM
Life is not complex. We make it so. The coming and going of a human being on a daily basis consists of going from different point A to point B's over and over finally ending up where we began at the end of your day. Going to work, taking the kids to school, beginning a project or managing ones affairs shouldn't be routine and should take a back seat to our enjoyment of it all REMEMBER TO ENJOY Isn't that what a vacation or (for many) a week end is all about? You leave behind the routine and all its demands and you (7 comments)
living: ALL OF US ARE AUTHORS EVEN BEST SELLERS BUT YOU GOT TO PARTICIPATE - 03/01/12 04:43 PM
Did you know that all of us are AUTHORS? Make no mistake, your life story is being written every day by YOU and YOU have the starring role in it. Will it be a page turner? Will it have chapters like, love, service, adventure, mystery, humility, mercy, charity, and sacrifice? Make it a book that someone can't put down RESEARCH AND MATERIALS Write it one moment at a time. Relish the content and be generous with the contributions. Honesty, sincerity and humility will all help make it a best seller. Gather your research going from one situation to another, one person (5 comments)
living: THE HUSTLE BUSTLE CAN STRAIN YOUR LIFE MUSCLE - 02/28/12 01:48 PM
The hustle bustle of everyday life is upon us now more than ever. When we wake in the morning, our minds race to meet up with our thoughts and we go through mentally where we must go to physically and then we prepare for the journey. We jump in the shower, do the the necessaries, dress for success, coffee up, and then hit the road. TYPICAL DAY What I am describing above is a typical day in the year. Is there anything that makes it special or stand out from let's say the day before or last week? We find ourselves (5 comments)
living: LIFE INVITES US TO ADVENTURE EXPLORE & PARTICIPATE I ACCEPT - 02/26/12 10:16 AM
In the world of yes or no, where simplicity and honesty reside, if you ask the question; Is life good?....the answer can only be yes. Our circumstances that change from day to day, week to week or even yearly should not change this answer in any way. CHALLENGES COME AND GO Many of us face challenging obstacles and new growth that we didn't see coming or that appear to be overwhelming. Some of us worry and think way too much into the future. While it is wise to be aware of what is coming up and its consequences, let us not (8 comments)
living: ACTION PLANS MOVEMENT WITH A PURPOSE - 02/25/12 09:04 AM
Life is to be lived. Why do you think you wake up in the morning? Its a call to action if there ever was one. Every waking hour of the day is a precious one of a kind gift that most people aren't aware of until its too late. An action plan whether it is personal or professional is a good way to get your day in gear and you with it GET GOING There is a valid and lively saying that goes like this..to do business you must be in business. How about to to succeed in anything, one must (10 comments)
living: THERE IS NOTHING HOLDING YOU BACK - 01/11/12 03:21 PM
Anything you set out to do will be done. People practice this on routine everyday matters. There is absolutely no reason why this would not work for larger matters too. First, we were not put here to be defeated. Second, in America, you go until you had enough. Lastly, watch out for things that tell you otherwise or cause doubt PRIDE, EGO, AND OTHER THINGS.... Blaming others or having excuses are robbers in disguise. They are deceivers too because they would have you believe that someone or something is keeping you from succeeding. Nothing has the power to stop you and (2 comments)
living: THE DREADED CHOOSING A SIDE - 01/03/12 01:17 PM
You see you can go through your day and even your life and not choose a side and live a life that is questionable. WHY? Because things are designed so that you must choose a side and failing to participate makes you out of order and not reward-able. Things that need support need you and they will be presented to you. After that, its up to you CHOOSING A SIDE MAKES YOU STAND OUT You go on record for something and human nature logs it in. If things go well, you are praised for it or at the very least, not (0 comments)
living: SIMPLE LITTLE THINGS THEY ARE SUFFICIENT AND HOLD - 12/12/11 04:43 PM
I am relaxing on this day, in this moment deliberately set aside for myself to enjoy and behold. It is raining here all day and is quite pleasant to behold and receive. I complimented it with a nice warm fire (SEE BELOW) and my wife is in the kitchen and all over the house enjoying herself while Christmas music plays...I'LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS
This scene has roots that go back, way back in time think: men and women, camp fires and a safe place to spend time...add a little chanting and some food...well its called simply.....LIFE Happy Holidays (0 comments)
living: KEEP IT SIMPLE AND SIMPLE WILL REWARD YOU TURKEY EGG BURRITOS - 11/29/11 04:43 PM
My friends, it is time to suck the marrow literally out of my turkey and I have reached the point where I now have it different ways. Today's devouring moment will consist of Turkey Egg Burritos with a smoothie chaser. Easy to prepare, fun to eat and it is good for you. I have included several pictures to help set the mood and instruction BELOW; YOU NEED A TURKEY CARCASS STRIPPED CLEAN
BELOW: TORTILLAS ON DECK...

living: SLOW DOWN LONG ENOUGH TO OBSERVE AND RECEIVE TODAY - 11/18/11 09:52 AM
Instead of making your day a mission based one, make it one where you are touring the surroundings while coming and going. Be aware of things outside of your field of vision. Pick anything and it becomes the focus of your world and most worthy to have been seen. Slow down long enough to see that you are seeing PEOPLE MAKE IT WORTHY Take the time to notice your fellow travelers too. The other day, I bought somebody their lunch who was not expecting it. Because I was paying, they were able to have something they normally would not have bought (2 comments)
