One screwed up society and it all starts with we the people………

I just came home from a week within Mother Nature, what beauty she had in store for me,  then I come home and back to society? With all the hatred, the ugliness and the corruption, I see why we are having quite a few natural disasters and it’s because God is upset at the way we the people are doing things down here and it is not the climate change.  All the issues within this society are the fault of we the people and nothing more, we are the ones bringing real pain and hurt to each other, we are the ones picking up that gun and pulling the trigger, its not the gun because the gun will not fire if a person does not pull the trigger, contrary to what some may try to sell you? Violence just doesn’t happen, it is we the people that bring violence to each other, as we become so full of rage and hatred, this is what happens when you take God and Jesus out of everything within a society, as we then lose sight of what true love is, then fill the void with unnecessary drama  and hatred.

Just look at our so called leaders in Government, plus the ones out there running for the office of President in 20/20, seriously!!! it’s still a ways away and the candidates are smearing so much hate you can cut it with a knife and its only going to get worse the closer the deadline gets. A true election is never about pointing the finger, or maybe smearing hatred all over, it is never about attacking your opponent to try to make yourself look good, it should never be lying to the ones who vote you in, not just because it will back fire at some point, but it will also lead down a road of being in denial, as the lie will become reality in your own head. Not just the so called called candidates running for an office, but the politicians in their respective office now, are so far in denial that they all have lost sight of what true reality is. Our so called leaders are suppose to lead and right now they are doing nothing, except maybe becoming lost within the clouds of their judgments. becoming so far within the walls of denial that everything out of their mouths is a lie, which the only ones that believe the lies are they themselves, because when you are in denial you have zero clue of what true reality is.

 

” If you can’t run for any office and do so on your true merits, then maybe you shouldn’t be running at all”

 

The beauty of Mother Nature with this running water flowing all through it, this is true reality as you look all around and see the beauty, through all the hatred and ugliness within this society you will never see any beauty around you, as it is all flowing away from you with all the ugliness and the hatred covering all that is in front of us. We the people are our own worst enemies and until we all come out of the clutches of denial, the hate and the ugliness will continue to cover, with the beauty becoming buried even deeper within us all. We the people are totally responsible for all the ugliness and hatred the time is now, to stop pointing the finger, stop attacking one another, get back in touch with your true inner feelings, your true love that is deep within your heart and soul, love is so much easier to share with each other than that of hate, but within this screwd up society and the fact that we are all so divided, we have it backwards instead of the way that Jesus taught us, when he came to us and walked his path through this journey of life.

 

” A week within mother nature I so recommend for all, as it is the true healer of everything within your mind, body and soul”

 

” Denial is a force all on its own but we can defeat it when we stay true to who we are”

 

” Finger pointing or attacking someone never proved anything, as answering all questions truthfully and with honesty and integrity, will have the real answers for all the questions right in front of you, showing you also all the true beauty all around you”

The Fire in the sky………..

What a beautiful sunset to cap of a beautiful day within nature. The sky is burning in the flames of the sun, just as the fire burns within each of us, we all have that flame within us, to achieve all we want to achieve, as we get older that flame seems to die out a bit, but does it really die out? It only seems like it does, because we loose our focus, we lose the drive to keep the flames burning within, we then get so caught up in all the crap around us, we then forget to stoke our own fire, we look at all around us in a different way, the focus we once had becomes clouded as we do not see things as we once did. Life is not all as soft as a Rose pedal, or the path we walk is not always paved, we always have to work hard for what we want and there are no exceptions, even the filthy rich have to work hard at keeping their wealth, or their wealth will disappear as quick as it came.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, we have to work every day to make the path as smooth as we can, the one thing we can not do is, count on another to help in the up keep of the path, unlike some might think like one of those Socialists types, you can’t take from one to help another along, especially the fact that those you may be taking from, are out there working hard to keep their paths clear, so why should some not have to work at clearing their path? Why should some take something that they really didn’t work for? There is this thing called pride and with pride, it makes you have a good feeling within, it helps you with self confidence to achieve all you want to achieve, without the pride and without the confidence, then the fire within you really does not burn as it should, as a matter of fact, that fire within becomes extinguished, making you cold inside with no true feelings moving forward.

Camping within Mother Nature is a lot more than just setting up a tent, setting up a piece of land just for peace and quiet, the days of camping is to unwind from the daily grind, explore and see things for which you normally would not see, not just see a sunset as beautiful as this, but also a sunrise just as much, there is a lot more to this journey through life, than the usual daily grind we all live, true we can get so caught up in the daily grind, that we then forget to stoke our fire within, which we then forget to get out and explore to see things we never see normally, sometimes we make a choice to stay within the world we are in, then that becomes our choice and we really can not blame another for that choice we have made, nor can we expect another to give up their choice, just because we do not like the choice we have made.

Sometimes life will bring us discomfort, it will bring us things that gives us much pain and hurt, through that pain and hurt is also when we become so clouded within, that the fire within us, will become extinguished like the rain fall over the campfire, when we are within the clouds it becomes very hard to see anything, even the path for which we are walking and instead of working at cleaning up the path, we just wander trying to hide our pain and hurt, so we can look as normal as we can. Sometimes the discomfort is part of what we are doing and sometimes, the discomfort comes from others who will bring it to us, simply because they try to seem more powerful to those around them? Either way it is up to us to clear the clouds of pain and hurt, so we than can feel good of ourselves, feel total confidence in ourselves, so we to can achieve all we want to achieve.

A trip within Mother Nature to explore and see things we normally would not see, is better than any therapy, it will help us unwind, it will help us clear the clouds from our judgments, so we than can see all the beauty around us, as we look out into the horizon and with a clear mind, we than can see that the horizon is looking back at us, we also notice that all our other senses are waking up to what is around us, we find that yes we do have these things of feelings within us, just that they were buried so deep within, that like the fire within, they were lost within the clouds that engulfed us. This journey through life is not about us waiting for another to give us everything, it’s not about just being consumed within the daily grind, there is so much more to this journey, we just have to have the confidence in ourselves to get out there and explore all that it has to offer and with this confidence, we will find that we have these feelings within us, that need to be stoked like the fire within, so as we walk our paths through this journey, we can do so in peace and happiness always.

” As the fire is within the sky, so to is there a fire within each of us as well to fuel ourselves to achieve all we want to achieve”

” As the sunset comes to put the sky to sleep for the night, so does the sunrise come to wake the sky up for the coming day”

” Socialism never works, just look at the current country of Venezuela”

” Discomfort will bring us pain and hurt, but to bring us comfort we all need to work hard and the pain and hurt will get better moving forward”

The making of a Legend and a Dynasty

a man wearing a football uniform: Getty

” Hello Mr. Kraft, my name is Tom Brady and the best decision this organization has ever made”. This is how Tom Brady introduced himself to Bob Kraft when they first met and now, the rest is history.

You don’t just wake up one day and suddenly you are a Legend at whatever you wish, it takes work and not just work but, long, hard, dedicated work. First you have to explore your options, try many things, til you find that one thing you not only love, but really want to excel in excellence at becoming the best at whatever that thing is you choose to be your craft.

Tom played baseball growing up, but being a strong New England sports fan, I am so glad he decided to love the sport of football. Tom’s work ethnic is second to none, he is the first one at practice and the last one to leave everyday, even when he is home, he watches film on the next team he is playing, he studies them inside and out, so he can read them like a book, then pick them apart with great passes to his teammates. Tom may be a gifted Quarterback in the NFL, but that gift came with a lot of hard, dedicated work.

Tom came to the Patriots like all other players in the league, through the draft, but Tom was drafted so far down the depth chart, that he was like an after thought that, hey maybe we can pick him up and put on the practice squad, to basically just go through the reps and maybe see what he can do? Well Tom studied the ways of the Patriots and the league to the point, when Drew Bledsoe went down with the injury, Tom never looked back and seized the day, taking the Patriots to the Superbowl and beyond.

It is not just Tom working hard to become a legend within the NFL and helping the Patriots become a dynasty within the league, that also comes from one of the greatest Coaches ever to coach in the NFL and that is, Bill Belichek. Bill like Tom eat, sleeps and drinks the game of football, he studies the game as well, giving him the knowledge, to create the most high tech playbooks within the sport of football. Now if Bill was a poker player, he would be the best, as he never shows his hand, until the time is right, which keeps the other team, not only confused, but keeps them guessing as well. Bill knows how to recruit talent, just as much as unloading the talent, when they are on their down slide. He loves a player that is not afraid to play any position on the field, as well as……..he is one of the few, that still like the position of Full back on the team and he grabs a player that is the toughest at that position, of which Devlin excels perfectly at the position of full back, for the New England.

The New England patriots the last 20 years have a legendary Coach and Quarterback, that work very hard daily, which has earned them the biggest title of them all and that is, earning the title of becoming a Dynasty within the sport of football. A Dynasty of anything takes a lot of hard work , not just for one Individual, but for many who make up that team. Bill Belichek recruited many different players through the years he has been here in New England, with the top recruit being a guy named………. Tom Brady. These two have been the common denominator on the team, with many different numerators over the years and with Bill putting a great system in place, the rest is history as the Patriots, year after year, have become the team to beat by all the other teams in the league.

” Achieving excellence in anything takes a lot of very hard work and doesn’t come that easy”

” A Dynasty is like and orchestra, with all on the same page and the same note, with a great Conductor bringing them together in harmony”

” You can’t have the dynasty without the legend and without the great supporting cast there is no legend”

” With winning breeds hatred, but if you want to win and become champion, then step up to the plate and beat a true champion”

Knowing what you want is easy, the hard part is to go out and get it………..

” The road of this journey is not always paved and not as green as you may think

***BowlingChef***

Those of this new generation of today, life wasn’t all full of a rose pedal path and as easy as simply jumping into a car and pressing a button to start it. Cell phones…………. These gadgets didn’t exist back in a time where, people didn’t even know you existed, unless you made the long journey into town, either by horseback or you walked which took most of the day to get to your destination, then you had to stay over night in the local boarding house and continue back home in the morning, all just to pick up a few needed supplies for where you lived.

Work you ask? You probably just stayed home to work your farming land so you can have a great crop to pick, as this was like gold to you, because it’s the crop that put the food on your table, with the extra used to barter for more supplies you may need. Barter you ask? This was a way to exchange things with others, with no money passing hands, but in order to barter, you had to have something of value for the person that had something of value for you. It was a whole different World back then, one that the new generation of today and especially when the schools of today do not even teach classes that will teach them of the times where you worked hard, before you even thought about playing hard, or even taking a vacation.

The Technology of today in a lot of ways has made us all weak and lazy. Like right now with the Christmas season upon us, We are all full of anxiety and stress because we get ourselves so worked up, because we can’t find what we want at the store, or when we find that something we literally fight with another as they to grab for that same something? Only we ourselves have to blame for letting the World of today, get as ugly and full of hatred as it has come to. Life way back when it may of seemed to be hard to us today, only because we have let technology control of who we are today. Those who walked this journey back in that time were actually smarter than we are today, they built their homes to stand strong through the test of time and what ever Mother Nature had to throw at it, they built their tools to last for many years, instead of breaking forcing you to go buy more tools, Today in this technology world, it’s all about the money, so the Techy companies can get richer with you and I becoming poorer and poorer.

Power and control is where this journey of life has moved into, with we the people the reason for this power and control. All the corporate companies are not the problem, simply because it takes a team of director’s to rule the company, for the CEO to run the day to day portion of the company, but the bottom line is, the company is a fictitious thing, that is run by people that make the decisions to run the company. Back within the time of yesteryear and the time that you worked hard even before you had your morning breakfast, just may seem too hard for those of today, only because they have let the technology control them, life back then was hard yes, but it was more of a simpler time, with less red tape and hoops to jump through.

The era of yesteryear is gone and is now replaced by the technology era, which makes for us the people to be able to accept and adapt, so we can move forward in a simple life, like those of yesteryear did. To be able to accept and adapt properly you first need to be better and understand what is around you, so your decisions are much more informed, instead of guessing, then making your decision become cloudy with no meaning. We have become so consumed within the corporate world, we have totally forgotten of what the simple life is all about. We all want to be better and advance higher as we move forward in our lives, but if we do not truly understand of what was, then how can we make the what is to become, better for us all moving forward? We the people all have our own brains and mind, to keep them well oiled and working properly, we must forever keep learning and not let the technology do this for us, I get that we want the latest and greatest piece of technology, but at what cost to us and the journey we walk, do we really want the latest and greatest in our hands? With the way technology is going, then pretty soon we the people will be the Dinosaurs of the world and the technology will take over, leaving us all as just the tumbleweeds of the desert, to blow in the wind along the floor of the desert, within this journey through life.

” Technology is good when you adapt and accept, to better understand moving forward”

” From generation to generation we are suppose to be better, not step back without moving forward”

” We all want the power and control, but at what cost will we go to get it?”

” The era of yesteryear is gone, making it more important to move forward properly, to be better and stronger”

The Patriots got “Played” at Hard Rock Stadium




” Superman has the Kryptonite, as the Patriots have Miami stadium” 

                                                                                         *** Bowlingchef ***

 


             This season of the NFL, is one with many flops and turns  by each team. The team mostly in question here are the New England Patriots, as this is my home team and one that I have seen much worse from, than the last few years. I remember this team losing more then they won and the favorite quote year after year was, ” wait til next year”. Now this quote was used by all the Boston team fans, but look at the city now, as they are known for the many titles as “Titletown”, with the Patriots and the Red Sox leading the way. 

      

               Yesterday’s Patriots game…………. True it was a heart breaker, but with all seriousness, it was one of those plays that does and will rear it’s ugly head, on to any playing field, of any sport. Today within all the Sports medias, they are all going to be the ” Monday Quarterbacks”, they are all going to be chatting as if they are the experts and all else are second to them, what I say to them is, it is you and your drama that all the sports can do without, so let the players play, keep the drama to yourselves. 

                  Tom Brady is one of those Athletes that does not come along very often, so instead of trying to predict of his retirement, by being overly critical of each play, simply just sit back and enjoy the ride, for the ride will not last forever. It has been twenty years and counting, that Tom Brady has brought the New England Patriots from a team of, not even mentioned in the sports world, to a team of ” Champions”. Tom Brady and Bill Belichek are Winners and when one makes a mistake of calling for the wrong play, OMG!!! The World is going to end? They are human like you and I, they are going to make mistakes like you and I, it is when we correct our mistakes, that has us grow better and stronger moving forward on our path through this journey of life, with Bill and Tom making fewer mistakes over those twenty years, that has us all in the denial part of admitting to the seasons of New England Patriot football before the Belichek and Brady era. 

                    Sports is no different than any other aspect of our lives, there is no such thing as perfection, there will be mistakes made, the difference between the Patriots over the years, compared to other NFL teams, they knew how to correct their mistakes quickly, so they wouldn’t get in the way of their winning seasons. Those that are very successful in life, they to make mistakes as we do, just that they are the Belichek and the Brady’s of the real world, they quickly correct their mistakes, so they can move forward better and stronger, everyday throughout the journey of life. With this last mistake of guarding against the hail Mary and putting Gronk out there on Defense, yes I can see the theory of having someone with good hands and being tall to deflect and knock down the ball, they did this with success when Randy Moss was on the team, but with this changing NFL, you as well need to adapt and change with it, or become the Patriots of old, when the “L’s” would outweigh the “W’s”. To be a Champion in anything, you need to adapt and change, as the New England Patriots, under Bill Belichek, did this better than anybody, which is why they have five Superbowl victories out of eight trips, Tom Brady with five rings, going one beyond his Idol Joe Montana. Instead of hating on this team so quickly and bringing more unwanted drama too us, lets remember on key thing, ” In Bill and Tom we trust”. 

” Football is a team sport that is a chess match between the coaches, with the players and their talents, helping the coach make all the right moves, with an occasional over looked play, becoming the miracle play”

”   We all have that something that gets in the way, it gets frustrating, by staying true to who you are, we can overcome that something” 

           

A picture with no words…………

Slide 17 of 18: Source:  Newseum

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words? With this picture from the London Times, there are no words. This picture was in the London Times twenty four hours after that tragic day of 9/11/2001. Change will come to each of us as we walk our paths through this journey of life and at different times to each of us, with such a tragic event, change comes to all of us at the same time and so wide spread.

The New York skyline has been changed forever to all of us throughout this world, not just we here in America have been affected by this event, so many worldwide have been affected as well. So many either have perished or are still feeling the effects from this tragic day. America will never feel the same as when we grew up before this tragic time.

For many of us within the last seventeen years, we will never forget where we were, nor what we were doing at the exact times of, not just when the Towers were struck, but when they crumbled to the ground in ruin. With each passing year from this tragic event and the change that has come, the pain will always be there, we just have to learn and change, of how we deal with it, so we than can move forward, better and stronger, to let peace and love overwhelm us, instead of what we see now, in all the ugliness and hatred.

Scars will mark us and remind us of times in our lives, that have brought much pain and tears, but these same scars do not have to stop us from moving forward better and stronger. Scars are the band aid that covers the open wounds, so the wound can heal us from the pain, without the scars then the pain and the bleeding will never stop, leaving us with no where to turn from the tragedies, the scars, the pain and the tears, are how we heal correctly and stay truly of who we are, which is full of the love of God, to share with each other as we walk through this journey of life.

The clouds of dust covering a portion of the city within the state of  New York, showing us just  how fragile everything around us is, where all that we build and in the blink of an eye, it all comes crashing down, leaving not just pain and tears among us, but a void within us all, that will always be there, no matter what we do to try to fill that void. Then as the dust lifts and everything becomes more clear, we then have no words, as the tears cover our faces, from seeing all the devastation and the rubble from such a tragedy. Through such a tragedy we witnessed so many helping others, that is truly of who we are, it’s all the other crap in this society just forces us to become someone for for we are not. America has changed forever and this is not the same America that I grew up within.

Change is all around us as we walk our paths of this journey and as we remember such a tragic event that 9/11 was, truly shows us that change can and will effect us in so many ways, there are various stages of change, with an event like 9/11, being as drastic as drastic can be, true there are some change being real suttle and barely noticeable, but no matter of the stage of change, we need to adapt and accept all change, so we than can move forward better and stronger.

The tears from the tragic event of 9/11 may have flooded our face, but the scars and the pain will never leave us even as we change, the scars and the pain will forever be within us, these scars then become a reminder of a terrible time, so we can change what we need to change, as we move forward better and stronger, as we walk our paths of this journey through life in the peace and happiness, that God envisions for each of us, only if we loved one another more, then the hate that is around us now will disappear, so we all can be at peace, in all we do throughout this journey.

 

” America has changed forever and will never be the same as we once knew it when we grew up”

” Through the tears comes pain and you can’t get rid of the pain without the tears”

” A picture is worth a thousand words, but with some pictures, there are no words”

” When you don’t adapt and except change, then change can bring great pain and tears”

” We are told Lord that it is a privilege to suffer on your behalf, may you receive glory in every season of my life, whether I am enjoying success or enduring sorrow”

Philippians 1:29

 

The New England Patriots, Tom Brady and our President Mr. Donald Trump are kind of like this tree on a little Island, all by their selves, simply because they are alone with all their successes, with all around them doing nothing but hate on them, only because they themselves are too lazy to even try to achieve what they have. It is so much easier to just give up and not even try to achieve greatness, than actually putting in a hard days work, so not only to feel good of yourself, but you as well can achieve greatness, as do the New England Patriots, Tom Brady and our President Mr. Donald Trump.

Success doesn’t grow on tree’s, you just do not wake up one day and ” Poof”…….. You are successful with piles of money, true success comes from very hard work and very hard practice, to make the the work turn into success. With hard work comes a lot of blood, sweat and tears and without them, your not truly working hard, not too mention with the hard work also comes great pain and pain that is, physical in nature, as well as a deep psychological pain that is deep within our souls. Nobody will actually welcome any kind of pain, which is why some will try to take the easy way out and hate on those that are successful, to try to make themselves seem better and more powerful than the ones, who actually have put in the hard work and practice, to be truly great at who they have become.

I can remember growing up as a young child and watching the New England Patriots, this was a team that, unlike today where they win more than they lose, the team back then lost more than they won, they had some great Individual player’s, but never actually had the team play great together, much like they do today, a huge part of that is the great culture that the coach has brought to the team, for the last twenty years. True Bill Belichek is responsible for this culture, but Tom Brady and his strong work ethnic, has become a staple of the team for the nineteen years he has been Quarterback of the team. Tom is forty one going into this season, he continues to defy Father time, but you can clearly see that, he works very hard each and every day, so he can stay on top of his game and with the hard work, comes all the success he has had through his career, But even with all Tom’s hard work, there is a small percentage of others that will stop at nothing to hate on him, simply because they themselves are too arrogant and lazy, to actually work as hard as Tom works each and every day.  Let the ” Patriot way” be a lesson to us all, when you work hard and have a great culture in which to learn, than just maybe all of us can achieve greatness, as Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.

President Donald Trump may be very wealthy, but that wealth didn’t just appear on his lap, he had to work hard at earning each and every penny of that wealth. Now some may make a ton of excuses, as to why they are not wealthy like him? but the bottom line is, they are more lazier than the President and do not want to put the work in. Jealousy will get you no where, as through jealousy only comes hate for all those around you. President Trump said before he won the election, that he would drain the swamp, he is doing just what he said, as well as a lot more. The swamp is really all the corruption within the walls of our Government here in America and if you are, as passionate as I in the world of politics, you can clearly see all the corruption, within the walls of Washington D.C. For which President Trump stands in the ocean alone, among a body of water full of sharks and he is doing a great job at fending them all off. Those on the left may hate on him more than those on the right, but they only hate on him, simply because he is making them look bad with his hard work, while they sit on there hands and continue their lazy ways of doing nothing, or keeping their campaign promises.

When we all work hard together, then yes we can make this society better and stronger, then societies of the past. Greatness never came from any kind of hatred, as hatred will only divide and separate, all that is around us. Hatred is the lazy mans way to try to move forward on their paths, while hard work will always bring you to true greatness, so we all can walk our paths through this journey of life, better and stronger, while we all simply just get along in this society of divide, instead of attacking one another and achieving nothing, leaving us all with nothing  as well.

 

” A strong work ethnic will bring us to greatness, while the weak do nothing making them weaker moving forward”

” True greatness breeds strength, joy and happiness with success for all from the fruits of their labor”

” Hard work never comes easy, but it is always better than the alternative.

” The hard work will unite, without it we then will be divided”

Now if we all took the Robin Williams approach to walking our paths through this journey of life, then just maybe this society would be a lot better for all? This was a man…… Who was hurting real pain deep inside himself, but yet had decided to through his humor, make the rest of us forget about the pain within us all. Robin Williams was blessed with the talent to truly entertain us all, whether it was comedy, or a movie like ” Dead Poet’s Society”, which for me was the best of all his movies. Robin Williams was truly sent from God for the benefit of us all, as he entertained us ( while he himself hurt deeply inside), so the rest of us can find relief from our pain, even if it was for a short time.

It is so sad that, we of this Society will go to any length to bring so much pain toward each other, that we as an Individual have lost totally the true feelings of, love and empathy that is within us all. When one fails at attempting something they are not used to, others will make fun of those failures instead of praising him to keep trying, which leads to many that will always quit, or never even try to make an attempt at something new. Then there are those that are very talented to play a sport, as they then turn professional and receive huge money to simply play a game.

Life within the National Football League is so screwed up today, simply because………. One has started a new thing of, taking a knee in protest, while disrespecting not just a song, not just a flag, but those who have died defending that flag, so the rest of us can live peacefully and as free as we want to be, doing whatever we want to do. Now with that said………. Through the whole off season of the NFL, there was not one Knee taker doing anything about whatever they were protesting to begin with, but now as the first pre-season  game has been played, they start back at taking a knee? The Quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys said it best, ” Football is not the time or the place for anything, other than playing the game of Football”, I agree totally and now have much more respect for Zak Prescott.

Most of us all stop what we normally do on Sunday’s, to watch the game of football the game, not the game of football being a politically ridden agenda, of whatever the flavor of the week may be for their protests. Let’s look deeper and put it a little different, we all go to our jobs each day, we work for a corporate company correct? What would happen to us if we decide to stand on a soap box and bring protest to our jobs? Correct……… We would be fired for not doing our job as we should be doing, well an NFL team is owned by an owner and that Owner buys the team for one thing and that is to make good on his investment, so in essence the NFL team is a corporate company, that pays it’s employee’s to do a job and not stand on, or take a knee in protest. Football is a game of strategy with the best strategy winning the game, football is not a game of protest and nor do the fans watch the game just for the protest, we watch to see a great game of different strategies, being played by not just an employee of a team, but a well trained and talented athlete, that’s true focus is on winning the game and nothing more, which to me there is one more focused on winning a game, each and every game, he has proved it more than once and that Athlete is, the quarterback of the New England Patriots………. Tom Brady.

There may be some that call Tom Brady a ” cheater”? Really!!! Then I shall call you fat, dumb and stupid, simply because you are too lazy to put in the work each and every day as Tom Brady does, to be the best at whatever it is you do. Whether off season or in season, Tom works very hard every day, so he can be as good as he needs to be and his winning ways proves just that. My challenge to all those who feel the need to protest within the NFL is, try working as hard as Tom Brady, focus 100% on the game of football, so just maybe you can be a true Champion, as the G.O.A.T of the NFL…….. Tom Brady already is, forget about the outside crap ( only to be done on your time…not company time), So not just you and your team play a great game of football, but we the fans, can watch a very well played, with very different strategies to winning a well played game, by well trained and talented athlete’s, each and every week of the season.

 

” Any professional sport is not about any kind of outside protest, as it is about showcasing the God given talent you have been given”

” You are an employee of the owner of the team you play for, there is a code of conduct for each corporate company you work for”

” Any success or failure we may have will be in our past, we can learn from the past, but never shall we dwell in the past as it only brings more pain to us all”

” We all have a God given talent and it is up to each of us to find that talent”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Working hard and moving up

” The best things in life are free, the air we breathe, the stars at night, the wonder of Human love, but the greatest gift of all is our salvation, purchased for us by Jesus Christ………….. Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift”

2 Corinthians 9:15

 

Within today’s society of fast pace and full of technology that has made life easy for us all, we have also become lazy with our work ethnic, where we want the world to cater to us, but we do not want to work for what we want? Just like when we take a trek up a mountain, there comes work to get to our destination of the summit at the top of the mountain, yes you have to climb up hill and a lot of the up hills are very steep, as you climb quickly in elevation to get to the summit. Now to achieve the reward of the beauty and the great scenery at the summit, you first have to put in the work of climbing up a trail for which you trek.

Now I am not saying that all of us have lost that hard work ethnic that has made this country great, just that it is becoming instinct and needs to be fixed before it becomes lost for ever.  A good work ethnic is one that, when you start a job within a company, you are not afraid or not ashamed to start at the ground floor and work hard while you climb the ladder of success within that company, as you climb the ladder within that company, also comes the great rewards of pay raises, that simply shows you that, you are somebody of which others do notice your hard work ethnic within the job you do, not too mention of what it does to your spiritual being deep within your soul. This spiritual being is part of our DNA, our make up of who we truly are, this is what makes our self esteem grow, as we then feel good of ourselves, moving forward along the path we chose, through this journey of life.

We all want the toys of life, the material things for which we consume along this journey, but being lazy and not working a job, because we simply don’t like the job, will never have us achieve any success, so we than can buy whatever material item we wish to buy. Bouncing around from job to job, is no way to develop a good strong work ethnic, never mind of not only building a great foundation in your work life.

With a great work life and the starting on the ground floor of your life, is what completes us as a Human Being, we respect all the things around us more as we grow into this world, that little child within us grows better and stronger as well, which then has us on the exterior growing with a strong self esteem. Never think of your job as “work”, only work hard at what you do, so you than can move up the rungs of the ladder known as success, as you not only feel great inside, but it shows on the outside with your true actions, of who you truly are.

Starting out on the ground floor of life, or within our jobs is not a bad thing, nor should it be frowned upon, as it only builds strength, character and helps us grow inside and out, with that little child that is within us all, growing stronger and healthy year after year, as we walk this journey through life. In this country we have what we call the ” American Dream”? This is nothing more than all of us working very hard to achieve great success and when we achieve this great success, we then not only build a strong foundation and grow strong roots, we then accumulate the material things within this society. now sometimes with success we forget of who we truly are? we forget of that little child deep within our souls, which not only leads us to a little child with no true direction,  it will also lead us into a lifestyle of negativity, weakness and laziness, which then makes us vulnerable to all the ugliness we see around us today. With strength come happiness and with happiness comes peace for us all, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” With strength comes happiness and with happiness comes peace”

” We all want great success along this journey, we also have to work hard to achieve this peace and happiness”

” Work ethnic is within each of us, just that some have refused to unleash the hard work part of the ethnic”

” Work ethnic helps us grow stronger while we greatly respect all that is around us”

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Journey of the trail

The journey of the trail, some trails are short and some long, some trails are an easy nature walk, as most will test your skill and endurance, none the less all trails offer you the same thing…………. The fact of getting outside and being one with nature.

Don’t be frightened of how the trail may look at first glance, as you will never experience true beauty, as you would on the trail of your choosing, while you look deeply into what is all around you. The journey of the trail will have you travel along many different terrains, with some being muddy and murky, others bumpy with many curves, then as you climb higher, now you walk among the clouds on top of the rocks, that make up the summit of the mountain.

All trails start with the getting out of your vehicle and putting on your gear, including a good pair of hiking boots. You want a good solid but comfy boot, as this will determine of just how good of a day you will have on the trail. You will also need plenty of water as you will need to stay hydrated on the trail, not staying hydrated will lead to a whole different issue, than just walking the terrain of the trail. Don’t forget the first aid kit and keep it stocked, as you never know for what will be needed, especially on rugged terrain. Then there is the much needed snacks for the trail, as with the calorie burn, you will need to replenish the body with the important vitamins. When you are on the trail, you simply never know what you may en-tale? So it is important to be as ready as you can be, for what ever that the trail may have in store along your journey.

Hiking along a trail can be the best and funnest of times, as it can also be the hardest and worst memory of your life, which makes it even more important to be ready for whatever you may come across, to minimize the worst and greatly improve the best of times, you never forget the camera as well, so you can keep good records and good memories, not to forget that, you can capture some really good pictures of many different kinds of animals and plant life, that you may normally never see, in your everyday world. of the 9 to 5 and go home to sleep for the next day.

While there may be many different hikes out there, some being day hikes and others over night hikes, the one that really grabs me is the Appalachian Trail, at just over 2100 miles, ranging from Georgia to Maine and all the states in between, this hike takes six months from start to finish, through all different terrain and all different kinds of weather that Mother Nature may throw at you, but none the less, when you complete this hike, it will not only give you a sense of accomplishment, it will give you a huge confidence boost, that will have you feel like that is nothing you can not do.

Within this broken society for which we all live, sometimes we get so caught up in things that drag us down, instead of pick us up, that we forget about doing things that make us feel great. We are afraid to do things that we think others will poke fun at us, so we then lose sight of just doing things that makes us happy, as we than can walk our paths of this journey through life in peace, so we than can feel good of ourselves, regardless of what others may think of us? Life is too short not to live as we want to live, but always remember that, when we do it correctly, then life itself will bring us great rewards as well, without being sad or depressed for living a life of regret, because we were too afraid to simply be ourselves, be the true person of who we truly are and not the fake person that we hide in plain sight within this broken society.

 

” The journey of the trail encompasses many things, but nothing better then making us all feel good of ourselves”

” When the terrain becomes rugged and steep, is when we are at our best along the trail to persevere and complete the trail”

” Never forget of truly who you are, as this will always help in us feeling good of ourselves, within this broken society”

” The trail may be long or it may be short, it is still a trail that we can walk, to help us all in being truly of who we are”
