Finding something new to challenge yourself is an exciting task.
When you start to believe that you can really do anything you set your mind to, the sky is the limit!
How to “tackle the sky” is a challenge for me.
As I pulled into the lot, I saw this extremely gaunt elderly man walking from the parking lot of the Chinese restaurant next door. He was carrying a backpack and three or four brightly colored t-shirts in his left hand.
He was making a bee line toward the CVS entrance.
My first thought was, “Crap. He’s going to ask for money or try to sell me something”.
This is just a simple post of another’s letter. “Father Forgets” was authored by W. Livingston Larned. Struck a chord with me. Please share… Listen,…
My thoughts are all driven by one emotion: Angst.
Mostly I am angry at my life of “impressing others”.
This is going to sound like I’m digging up an old love story about a girlfriend from the past, share how wonderful she was and how that relationship changed my life forever.
Plus, she was 8 years old and hated me.
2012 left this world with some challenges out there for me to tackle.
2013 came roaring in, bringing more challenges with it.
Time to be the captain of my soul…
The “downs” left me asking “What am I going to do?!”.
That question caught my attention…
This is a question that is born more out of desperation and panic than anything else.
I just sat there for what seemed an eternity with my head in my hands, completely consumed with tears of failure.
How could I have come so far and just lose it all?
I lost the trust of my family and children.
I betrayed the families that depended on the success of my business for their incomes.
My dream of being a restauranteur went up in flames…
For the first time in my life, I think I accepted that not everything is because of a me and began to work on how I see things.
I started to view each failure after that in a different light.
Let me first say I truly believe I live in the greatest nation in the world. I’m proud to be an American. My faith in the Red, White and Blue stands strong. Always has and always will.
Let me say secondly, it is time to take this country back.
