They will come if we give them what they want

Hannibal had it right

“We will either find a way, or make one.”




Yesterday I suggested that we should not let externally imposed barriers keep us from moving ahead with our lives. When we encounter them we just have to find a way around them, through them or over them. If we…

Make sure you change course if you have to

When you come to a roadblock, take a detour.

Barbara Bush



The other day I suggested that one of the secrets of a happy life was the ability to stay nimble and agile as our world changes. Once we realize that the most practical way to travel is not always in a…

Life rewards the nimble

“I don’t regret the things I’ve done, I regret the things I didn’t do when I had the chance.”

Don't forget to clear your mind

Write a lot, live a little, clear your mind. Make mistakes, be happy, live on edge, and enjoy the ride that life offers.



I have talked lately about how we might benefit if we gave ourselves more time to do things we like by setting priorities and eliminating some of the things we do…

It's never too late

“Everything comes too late for those who only wait.”

Elbert Hubbard



Yesterday I shared with you that I need more quiet time in my life as well as more uncommitted time that can be used as I wish. Later as I thought about it I again realized how time is finite…

Ah, quiet at last

One of the best gifts you can give yourself is quiet time with yourself. If you listen, the silence speaks volumes.



I realized recently that I am not reading as much as I use to and that my favorite periodicals are piling up waiting to be read. I have also noticed that since I got my…

C. S. Lewis



I have been in conversation with a few different friends lately who seem to be reluctant to make any life or career changes because of their fear of what might be the results. Over the years I have…

Oh the heck with it!

“It is fun to have fun but you have to know how.”

Dr. Seuss



Yesterday I wrote that it is fun deciding to live life backwards, thinking younger everyday makes a whole lot of sense. One of the best ways to do that in my mind is to quit worrying too much about…
