Quote about persistence

For your consideration

The pause on most of my social media feels good.

After a day or so it appears to me that the hiatus from most of my interaction with social media is very relaxing. No postings except this blog and the notifications are turned off on everything else. Where this will lead me, at this point, is an unknown.

I have a tendency about me that can be unhealthy. I take on more than I can handle sometimes and adjustments become necessary.

Sharpening the saw sucks for me

With my lack of patience, I probably would beat the tree down with a dull axe, maybe not smart, but I know me. It would be a battle.

Do I need rest? Is my body yelling at me, am I losing my will, or is a little bit of both? Either way, it has a bit of yuck to it!

How high can I fly?

“No one can tell you how high to fly or how much to dream. It’s different for each eagle. Only God and you know how far you’ll go. You alone answer that. The only thing that limits you is the edge of your imagination” from the book Momentum by Mark Bravo

Ultra Parents . . .

Triathletes, marathoners, trail runners, a bunch of that stuff, but that was before the two babies showed up. Now they are “Ultra Parents

Lizards, snow, toy trucks, butterflies, fishing, lots of dirty clothes, fruit loops, waking up at night and the list goes on and on.

Any “me time” is carefully constructed around them babies.

These parents are some of my heroes.


Having regrets is what made me who I am today . . . A person that has stuff that he did, that he now wishes he didn’t do.Yeah, I have regrets!

But I have a list of stuff that would choke a mule that I don’t regret doing.

Life is Great!!

Still operating the blog

I will continue to blog.

Here are the words that were posted on Facebook and Instagram this morning, by me.

Goodbye for awhile. Social media has been, for me, a wonderful vehicle that has far surpassed what I thought it may do to help distribute my thoughts and let me view the thinking of others. Way to numerous are the blessings I have received from participating, to describe them. My, what looks like a pause, has come about because, plain and simply, a tiredness has set in that I must address. That tiredness manifest from adjusting to an ever changing role that is top priority, it’s a personal situation, my responsibility. I am grateful for social media and extremely thankful for all the folks involved, you.

Besides resting from the diligence I put into every social media post, this will also let me focus sharper on losing a bit more weight. There are a lot more miles out there with my name on em, mountains that need climbing, forks in the road to ponder, mistakes to be made and life to be lived. I will deem it all a success if I give each attempt my all!!
Life isn’t just good, Life is Great!!

Walking with wolves – Netflix

Once upon a time there were three brothers. When it came to sharing there livestock, one of them was betrayed by the other two, out of greed. This one brother cursed the other two to roam these lands forever, and took to the forest. We are those roaming the world, and he shadows us in the form of a wolf. He keeps coming back, in his wolf skin, to take his share and remind us of our greed. After all, the wolf is our own brother. How can we kill, or even hurt him?”
