Finally Doing Something

(The following was originally posted on August 21, 2016 under my other blog.)

I created this created this account about five years ago. Today is the first day I have finally taken initiative to write something. When I was heavy into Facebook six years ago; heavy meaning posting, commenting, and liking almost everything I saw or could think of. At that time, many people said that I should write a book. I wish I had then.

Recently; probably a month ago, I start listening to podcasts. Once person in particular, Arel Moodie, has motivated me to becoming the best version of me. I have WASTED five years doing absolutely nothing to advance myself in life. That changes today.

I admit, my family and friends have been trying to motivate me the entire time. For some reason it just didn’t click. That is, until now. I feel good. No I feel great! No looking back. I am going to make little, worthwhile advances daily. I will find something to write about, at least twice a month. Even if it is of no significance, I will jot down something. 

If you are reading this and have been putting off advancing your dreams, STOP IT!. Today is a new day, do something. It doesn’t matter how small, do something. You do not want to look back and think about all you could have, should have, and would have done. Learn from my mistake. Work on becoming the becoming the version of yourself.

Well, that is all I have to write for now. I have to think about something else I can do to better myself.

Peace out,

Just another conversation while at work.

Today I was riding with my co-worker. We normally drive in separate vehicles, but my work vehicle is in use by someone else. We were having regular chit chat and somehow the movie Powder was mentioned. By the way, it was an excellent movie in my opinion. If you plan on watching it, stop reading this now. Go watch it and then check back in.
Anyway, we mentioned how emotional we got watching it. He said that in the end of the movie Powder sacrificed himself. I thought for a moment about what he said. I responded and said, like Jesus. To me, there seemed to be a similarity. There was a scene when the sheriff’s dying mother, unable to speak, was able to let her son know everything was going to alright before she passed. Powder allowed that to happen. He bought a boy back to life. He let a deputy know what it was like to breathe your breathe. Also, Powder asked, “how long do you really think I’ll let you keep me here.” Just like Jesus, he had all power. In the end, things were getting worse in the town. So Powder chose to give his life so everyone would be better off. I will have to re-watch that movie sometime this week to get a better understanding as to why I used the comparison between the two.

Until next time, God bless and have a wonderful, fulfilling day.
