12 Years in the Making
Ever since becoming an involuntary member of the “Life-Changing Events Club” in 2009 when my daughter lost oxygen to her brain for 6 minutes,
I have viewed life with a new perspective.
That new perspective has been the greatest gift of my life.
I believe in life’s ordinary events there is extraordinary meaning.
I believe within our lives there are many life lessons which, when applied, can vastly prepare us for what is to come in our lives.
I believe everything we do and everything that happens to us in our life – happens for a reason.
I know the reason may take many years to come to the surface.
But it most certainly will.
And, I believe, if you are paying attention, you will realize the magnificence of how the universe works.
Here is my vision for my life and for this blog:
To improve the quality of other people’s lives by converting my life experience into the seeds of love, kindness, gratitude, and appreciation which I will plant in the soul of others.
I will be present and nurture this new spirit during chaos and crisis and share in and enhance the bloom of this spirit during accomplishment.
To live in a manner and way which will inspire those I serendipitously share paths with to live their version of the same in their lives.
That is the vision for my life and for this blog.
Thank you for your support.
Everyone can use a little awe in their lives.

The Way You Think. That is the most important aspect to improve on in the off season.
Welcome to TODAY. The absolute most important day of your life. It is yesterdays tomorrow. It is tomorrow’s yesterday. It is now. There is one thing that I know for sure, and that is one day you will wish you had another today to live. Today is that […]
As a child I learned how to count by adding and subtracting. As an adult I learned how to count by impacting other peoples lives.
Jazz Chisolm of the Marlins, with 12 HR & 10 SB, is on pace to become only the 44th player in Major League history to go 30-30 – 30 SB & 30 HR in the same season. To put that into its proper context –There are approximately 400 […]
No one can build you the bridge on which you, and only you, must cross the river of life. There may be countless trails and bridges who would gladly carry you across; but only at the price of forgoing yourself. There is one path in the world that […]
