One Moment

READY... “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but the moments that take our breath away.”
AIM…  Twenty-four hours a day.  Seven days a week.  Can you do it?  Can you stop long enough to hit the pause button in your life for just one moment?  One moment.  How long is that really?  Is one moment the same as one second or is one moment one minute?  No matter how you interpret it, one moment is all it takes for you to realize your life could be over in one moment.  One moment is all your need to recognize you are blessed with many of life’s conveniences that others cannot afford.  One moment is all you need to give thanks to God for the loved ones you are surrounded with who care for you day after day.  Yep, that’s all it takes is one moment. 
Life is zooming by at lightning speed.  It could all come to a screeching halt in one moment.  Let’s take one moment to breathe; be thankful; think of those who are less fortunate; love with all our hearts.  And maybe, just maybe, we’ll realize that moment by moment, life is just too precious not to appreciate our moments and savor every single one.
FIRE!   Here’s your one moment.  What will you do?  Ready?  Go…
Be Excellent!

Lost In The Fog

READY... “It is not the clear-sighted who rule the world.  Great achievements are accomplished in a blessed, warm fog.”  ~ Joseph Conrad

AIM…  Slowly, the cloudy haze rolled in across the grassy field.  Moment by moment, the mist crept closer, sweeping my face with sprinkles of the wet air.  Soon, the fog enveloped my entire being.  I could no longer see past the end of my outstretched hand.  It surrounded me.  I was lost in the middle of what seemed like a vast nothingness. 

Ever feel like you’re caught in the middle of a huge brain fog?  Yep.  That’s been me for the past few weeks.  I apologize for not keeping my loyal readers stoked with inspiring messages.  I’ve literally been lost in the fog. 

So much has been going on in our media I wanted to address.  But with the sensitivity of the topics, what would be appropriate?  So many exciting things are going on around me.  But what should I share and what’s been overdone? 

I’m stepping out of the fog today, ready to recommit and challenge my readers.  You may like what I share, you may choose to disagree.  That, my friends, is what makes this world interesting.  We all have voices and we are all entitled to share our views.  My hope is that your view is steeped with integrity, good moral fortitude and a passion to change the world.  Are you ready?  Let’s step out of the fog together.

FIRE!   Being stuck in the fog is not fun.  You can’t see in front of you, behind you or even on either side of you.  Today, shine your light and step out of the fog.  Make a commitment and let’s go for it!

 Be Excellent!
