A great quote to consider today…
Independence Day here in the US is our annual recognition of The Continental Congress declaring that the thirteen American colonies were no longer subject to the monarch of Britain and were now free, and independent. We celebrate it with days-off of work, cookouts, fireworks and maybe some cold beer. It’s a great Holiday and I enjoy it for sure.
July 1, 2019 is here, marking the beginning of the second half of the year, 181 days of 2019 done and gone. A few questions to ponder—if you want—are: Do you know where you’re going? What needs to be real for me and my family and life come December 31, 2019? (This is your vision.) What do I need to start doing (and how do I need to start thinking?) that I’m not doing now?
I never used to meditate when I was growing up. I’m not sure I ever even heard the word in early life except maybe in vocabulary class. I certainly didn’t know what it meant, or what it was. As I grew older, I realized the power of the connection that occurs with the energy inside us when we shut out the energy outside us.
As I celebrate my 24th Father’s Day, I recall that as I was growing up I never even thought I’d get married, let alone have children. I sure am thankful this is not the case; I cannot imagine life without our three wonderful kids; Luke, Joey and Lizzy.
I like most types of music. Country is my favorite as I’m attracted to the storytelling element of many country songs. I was driving to the airport this morning and heard a new song by Lady Antebellum called, What If I Never Get Over You. Now as you’re likely thinking, this song is about the end of a romantic relationship, and you’re right. But what caught my attention this morning as I heard the song for the first time was one line: what if time doesn’t do what it’s supposed to do?
