I can’t tell you how touching it is when readers of these blogs come to me and thank me for writing such positive and uplifting words, so simple and so beautiful, wanting to let me know so that I will continue to write. It is very moving, and I am very humbled to think I might be helping us to put a better world under our feet!

“Thank You!”

Here is an interesting thought, or perhaps a series of thoughts…

There must be something truly amazing and wonderful and magical and powerful about each of us and our abilities to live and create life.


Consider how viciously and mercilessly people are scorned and attacked each and every day by those who think they know better for us than we do. People who don’t want you to think great things about yourself, and others.

What could be so bad about simply living and enjoying being alive?

Nothing really, but I’m sure you’ve heard all the “noise” out there, and crazy talk. For those of you who didn’t follow my advice and turn off the news and cell phones, you know exactly what I’m talking about, and perhaps you should ask those chaos merchants why they don’t want you to do well.  It makes no sense. It’s just wild and insane ramblings that speculate on doom and gloom that was created by those who are speculating!   The media chases it tail, and expects us to, as well!

It was Mark Twain who once said,

“I’ve lived through some terrible things in my life, some of which actually happened.”

Somebody or something out there doesn’t want you to be free to live your life, to be happy and prosper.

Consider the last year or so- everyday governments, politicians, health organizations, and generally “bad” eggs try to make you give up and give in, and yet here you are- still standing, still pushing toward life and being alive.

You know, do yourself and everyone who counts on you a favor, and take a look in the mirror. Take a good, long look and see that thing, that essence that is you. It will make you laugh, and know this…


Look back over the years and laugh at those who tried so hard to make sure you couldn’t.

But here you are, you are doing it- you are surviving! And where are they? Physically, who knows?  But in spirit they are the ones who are telling you, to this day, that you can’t, you mustn’t, you won’t, no, no, no, no, and no!

They were never able to stop you before, and I sincerely doubt that they ever will. Only you can stop you.

Here’s a funny thought… simply be the hungry grizzly bear you come upon in the woods, and DON’T EAT YOURSELF! You should be fine!

You don’t have to do it yourself simply because someone says you should!

It won’t be easy, but you can always survive and do well in life!

Something to think about, and more next time!

Take Care,
