This is what we are going to do today

Dear Friends

It’s important to remember the value of living in the now. Yesterday can’t be changed and no matter how much we long for tomorrow we can’t do anything there until tomorrow actually comes. So why not just live in the now, in the today, in this very moment of moments? What other choice do we have anyway?

Today, we are going to grab hold of life and live it to the fullest. We are going to let people know how much they mean to us. We are going to do our jobs to the best of our ability. We are going to support our co-workers, friends, family, bosses and pastors. We are going to give to the homeless and then give some more.  We are going to praise God, pray to God and be a witness to God. Because today is all we have and sometimes this opportunity too, can be taken away from us in the blink of an eye. Just a little something to think about not only today but for always.

What are you thankful for today? How will you make the most of each moment? Do you regret not enjoying other moments in your past? Is there some point of your life you would have lived differently or to the max?

Leave your thoughts via a comment or two 🙂

Never Stop Believing in Yourself

“Never give up on your dream … because you never know what the Lord can bless you with.”
~ Kelly Rowland

“Stay true to yourself, yet always be open to learn. Work hard, and never give up on your dreams, even when nobody else believes they can come true but you. These are not cliches but real tools you need no matter what you do in life to stay focused on your path.”
~ Phillip Sweet

 

Today is the last day of June. It is also the only time we will see Friday June 30, 2017 but even though the second half of the year will start from tomorrow, let’s not be disappointed or depressed if we are not as far along as originally planned for this time. Remember, you are enough! And by extension it is never, and I repeat never, ever too late to work on yourself … because even Oprah thinks this is a good idea 🙂

 

And you thought you had one up on this Granny … definitely not!

You get a news feed from www.bbcnews.com on your instagram account with the following headline:

Hairdryer gran Jean Brooks is ‘national hero’ say fans

You wonder how many hairstyles Jean could be doing every day to make her a national hero. Sounds as though she must be something special so you click on the link to see this introduction:

“A hairdryer-wielding grandmother who became an internet sensation says schoolchildren in her area now consider her a “national hero. Jean Brooks uses the hairdryer as a pretend speed gun outside her home in Hucknall, Nottinghamshire.”

Of course you want to read more! I also wanted to see how well this worked because it was just so far fetched.  The report went on to say this:

“A video of her has been viewed more than 33 million times on the BBC Radio Nottingham Facebook page.  Since her new-found fame, she said she is asked for selfies and fans visit her home.”

Click on the link above to see the hilarious video but guess what? Success was achieved.  It was a serious situation that called for desperate measures and I could totally relate to this as something possibly affecting many of us in other parts of the world.  Here on my little rock for sure, we have stunt bike riders performing wheelies in the middle of thick bumper-to-bumper traffic and in neighborhoods every single day but especially on weekends aka super dangerous but the riders just do not care.

Jean’s streets are much safer for residents now, including young vulnerable children; she is a great granny and an excellent role model. She did what she had to do to restore order, stability and safety from out of the chaos because as they say, ‘necessity is the mother of invention’ and this invention was most definitely necessary.

But what’s your take? Would you have gone to these lengths? And on a scale of 1 – 10 what’s your rating for ingenuity? Let’s start a conversation; share your thoughts in the comments box 🙂
