We can’t give any of these things to you. These are all things that only you can give yourself.

You’ve got to have a vision for yourself and then you’ve got to put in the hard work.

Because when you do, when you use self discipline, you don’t just achieve excellence, you get the rewards that come with it.

Do the hard work and the doors will swing wide open.

Happy Thanksgiving!

It's that time of year to give thanks, again. I know I try to give thanks more than just on Thanksgiving.

As Thanksgiving creeps up on us in just a couple days, I thought I would give thanks right here, right now.

I am thankful for my children. I'm not sure the woman I would be without them but I know who I am with them. My kids keep me focused. I try to see things in their eyes and try to feel what they feel.

I am thankful for my friends. Old and new, you are all close to my heart. But, I'm sure you already know how I feel about you....I'll say it again, I am blessed to have each of you in my life.

I am thankful for the not so simple things in this economy....A roof over our head, a place to lay at night and the food we have to eat. Honestly, everyday I hear more and more stories of good people losing their homes and having a hard time feeding their kids. It makes me so sad! And to think, I could be right there among the many. Yes, I am thankful!

I am thankful for being here one more day... Good or bad, I am here to embrace it.

I am thankful for my readers and followers. You let me know that you must like what I have to say or you would not come back. And for that, I thank you!

From my family to yours...I wish you love, happiness, peace, health and prosperity.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

Don't Sweat The Small Stuff!

A father was passing by his son's bedroom and was astonished to see that his bed was nicely made and everything was picked up. Then he saw an envelope propped up on the pillow that was addressed to 'Dad'. With the worse premonition he opened the envelope with trembling hands and read the letter.

Dear Dad:

It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with mom and you. I have been finding real passion with Stacy and she is so nice.

But I knew you would not approve of her because of all her piercings, tattoos, tight motorcycle clothes and the fact that she is much older than I am. But it's not only the passion...Dad, she's pregnant!

Stacy said that we will be very happy. She owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. We share a dream of having many more children.

Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn't really hurt anyone. We'll be growing it for ourselves and trading it with other people that live nearby for cocaine and ecstasy.

In the meantime we will pray that science will find a cure for AIDS so Stacy can get better. She deserves it!

Don't worry Dad. I'm 15 and I know how to take care of myself. Someday I'm sure that we will be back so that you can get to know your grandchildren.

Your Son, John.

P.S. Dad, none of the above is true. I'm over Tommy's house. I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than a report card. Which is in my center desk drawer.

I Love You... Let me know when it's safe to come home.

Busy, Busy, Busy

A big hello to my followers.... So sorry I have been slipping on the blogging lately. I guess you could say it's bittersweet what has been happening.

I've been dealing with more and more people lately that have lost their job and are looking to work at home now. It really is terrible. It does not seem to matter where you live... Washington, Texas, Maryland... So many people can't find a job out of the house. It's as if hiring is on hold everywhere unless you are a real young candidate. Companies know that they can pay them a little less and get twice as much work out of them than say, against, someone like myself who places a little value on what I know I am worth. And what I need to live!

So I have people contacting me like crazy lately... Asking the obvious questions of course:

1) Is what you do legit?
2) Do you really get paid?
3) Does the BBB back you up?
4) Do you get bonuses?
5) Do you sell?
6) Do I have to take orders?
7) Do I have to approach my friends and family?
8) Is there a big start up cost?
9) Is there training?
10) What's the catch?

The Answers:

1) Yes
2) Yes
3) Yes. Not only backed, but awarded.
4) Yes
5) No
6) No
7) No
8) No...Absolutely not.
9) Way too much to mention
10) No catch! Just serious people...Not curious.

There are so many scams out there....Please be careful! Just know that there is also legit companies as well.

Have a great evening!
