This Journey through life

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

We choose our path we walk through this journey, sometimes the path is a bit rough and needs some work, sometimes along the path it becomes out of focus, there will be many obstacles to over come along the path as well, or quite simply………. The path may not look passable at first glance. No matter of how the path looks, we need to work hard so we can move forward, without going backwards along the path we choose, because when we move forward with our hard work, it will always give us a feeling of accomplishment, a feeling of pride and raise our self esteem to levels of we then feel great of ourselves, without being so sad or depressed, for the direction we are going along our path through this journey of life.

Like in this picture all our paths a little rough and it is all because some within this society, can not see clearly enough to continue forward by working hard, instead they simply are giving up by bringing much hatred to the rest of us, to make all our paths look harder than they really need to be. Those on the left being the Democratic party, are the ones that clearly can not see the true reality, they refuse to except President Donald Trump as the President of the United States and are doing all they can to get in his way of progress and get in the way of him delivering on his promises, to all those who voted for him. All these so called leaders are doing is quite simply………. not living up to their campaign promises that they promised to each citizen that voted them into their office for which they hold. The time is now for each member of the Democratic party to grow up, smell the fresh brewed coffee of reality and live up to all their promises of their campaigns, or simply step aside, let our President do his job that he promised all his voters, so we all can move forward with our hard work, while we leave the rest of you in our dust, as you fall backwards in your own little worlds.

No matter of how ugly the path looks, no matter of how rough the path looks, no matter of how impossible the climb along the path seems, with real hard work and determination, there is no path that can not be conquered, as we all move forward along the path and reach the summit of the path, then we all can feel the true feeling of accomplishment, see all the true beauty at the summit, making our hard work to get  there well worth it, then look even further down the path with so much pride, that no matter where the path turns from there, we will do so with gusto and strength, as our confidence will be so strong, that we will welcome any challenge that may come along the path we choose, so we than can move forward in peace and happiness, without any hatred like we see now, making this journey through life, a journey well traveled.

Just maybe we all should take to the mountains that are around and not just look at them from a far, but actually put on a pair of hiking boots, pack a backpack to put on your back with needed supplies, and take that trek that you think you can not do, yes it may be a bit rough at the beginning, but as the hike moves forward, as the hike moves upward to the summit of the mountain, you then change yourself, you begin to think more positive like, hey!!! This isn’t so bad, maybe I can reach the summit and before you know it, you are there seeing all the true beauty all around you. Being one with Nature and hiking a mountain to the top is more than just hiking to a summit, it can also be a life lesson that can help us all change for the better, because at the beginning we all will be a bit negative with our thoughts, then as the hike moves forward and upwards, we then change our way of thinking from negativity, to positivity and confidence. So instead of being so negative at our great President Donald Trump, give him a chance to do as he said, so we all can change for the better and reach for the summit of life along this journey, for which we walk our paths.

 

” Mountain climbing up any mountain may be a bit rough if you are not used to it no matter of who you are, but hard work and determination will help us all accomplish reaching the summit of the mountain”

” We all need to end all this hatred and negativity, so we all can be positive within peace and happiness”

” The path we choose may not always be smooth and easy, it takes hard work and determination to make that path as smooth as we can”

” A true mountaineer will struggle from time to time, but with hard work he achieves the summit of his journey no matter how difficult the path so he can keep moving forward”

The longest day……… 6/6/1944

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

The water’s are calm now, but back over 70 years ago, we owe a huge debt to the men and woman, who fought the good fight, with many not making it past that day. These men and woman should never be forgotten, as if it weren’t for them, we of this Society may not be free to roam as we do today? This country just might of been a bit different today if it wasn’t for these brave hero’s of that time. These men and woman didn’t ask for this fight, but yet they showed up and fought the good fight, simply because it was the right thing to do, for all who walk a path through this journey of life, on the soil of the great country called, the United States of America.

The men and woman of our Armed Services sign up and become trained to help keep America great, they may not receive big money unlike those within the world of sports today, but these men and woman most definitely earned every penny they earn. The actions of our men and woman of the military goes without saying, as the actions of some of the men and woman within the world of sports………….. Well let’s just say, could be a bit more respectful for the ones who fought the good fight, so they can earn the big bucks, playing a game that they love. These men and woman of our Armed services just do not get enough respect for what they do, or have done, some go off away from their families for long stretches of time and some either don’t make it back, or come back back within a casket, or even worse……….. Missing parts of their bodies. While those within the world of sports cry over a hang nail, or whine over an official making a bad call, really!!! We of this Society are to blame for this, simply because we have lost our way along this journey and have mislabeled our priorities, from what we think is important, to what should be important.

We of this Society have changed so much compared to the Society back some 70+ years and a lot of ways, we have changed for the worse, taking big steps backwards, instead of moving forward, like those of our military’s past, present and future. The most political of all the wars……… Vietnam, these men and woman went and fought the good fight, even though they may not have agreed with the decisions of them being there, but yet still fought bravely, then they came back to American soil and are treated like low class citizens and some even being homeless, with no place to sleep or eat like those of us today within our homes, only shows just how screwed up we have become, while we live our lives today.

These men and woman of our military and how they get trained, are so disciplined, they think nothing of going to battle, so we can be free to roam and live our exotic lifestyles, we owe them a great deal of gratitude, but how do we pay them back? By some within the world of sports taking a knee, instead of standing tall and proud, showing great respect for them, as our countries National Anthem is being played before each sporting event. Those within the the world of sports just might not be playing for the big money that they get, if it wasn’t for these brave men and woman, these are the real Hero’s and not, the ones within the world of sports.

Respect is a two way street and there is no sign that reads ” one way” on any of the streets of Respect, those within our military don’t join to get our Respect, but with their actions they earn our Respect in many ways. While those within the world of sports think that they deserve our Respect, even without doing a dam thing, or worse, doing things that are just plain and simply stupid and uncalled for. Those within the world of sports think, that because they get paid big bucks, that they are better than the rest of us? They think that because of their big money, they can use their playing fields as a platform to Preach to the rest of us? I got a news flash for all you within the sports world, you are an employee of the game you play, just like the rest of us are an employee of the company for which we work our jobs. While you are an employee you have to abide by the rules and regulations of that company,  we all have to answer to somebody and there is no other way around it. Now you can have your opinion yes, we all have our opinions, but never forget that we all have the right to our opinions and no one can take that from us, no matter of who you are.

Those within the world of sports think that it is their right to go visit the President after they have won a championship in the sport they play? I have another news flash for you, going to visit the President is not your right, it is a privilege and an Honor, if you think other wise, then you need to rethink your way of thinking. Now you within the sports world may not like the President for whatever reason, just as many of us have our likes and dislikes, but to disrespect a sitting President, is just as bad as, disrespecting our men and woman of our armed services, as you take a knee, during the playing of this countries national Anthem, maybe we all within this country should boycott the sport you play, so you then lose that big paycheck, leaving you with no platform for which to speak? We all walk a path through this journey of life, when we walk it correctly without stepping upon another’s shine, this journey will reward us with great things, it will bring us each much respect even when we don’t go looking for it, but when we preach to other’s and demand their respect, now your looking at a journey that becomes very rough, that can bring much pain and hurt, for which will affect us all and keep us from enjoying true peace and happiness throughout the journey.

 

” America’s military are the real true Hero’s within this country and should have all our Respect for what they do for us”

” The water is calm compared to the day of 6/6/1944, but these men and woman of this day have earned our Respect now and forever”

” Sports and politics do not mix, now get back to playing the game that you get paid greatly to play”

” Those within our military may not get paid big money for what they do, but their actions get rewarded with our respect”

 

 

 

 

 

An Anniversary of Good versus Evil

 

 

 

” May the sun always shine on the Boston Marathon, the sun showing good with no evil present”

 

Despite the weather, this day of the Boston marathon will always be more than just a competition of running. Five years ago two Brothers decided to bring hatred and evil to all that were at the marathon, but quickly found out that, no matter how planned out you thought you were, the good will always win out over any evil. You hear more about the different charities a lot of runners are running for, yes all the runners start out with the same goal and that is to cross the now famous finish line of the Boston Marathon. Some may not finish as their bodies become overwhelmed with exhaustion, some may feel the true warmth of God’s love no matter how cold the weather, when a fellow runner stops and either helps or carries them across the finish line and yes, the true competition may be in the front of the pack, with the ones who want to finish first, but the real competition starts from the middle to the end of the pack, with all the love and empathy showed of each other, not too mention all the charities being run for.

Five years ago there was very ugly tragedy at the finish line of the Boston Marathon but through that tragedy, there has been so much good that has come from it, that it just fills your heart with the warmth of God’s love and willing to share that love with each other. We the people need so badly to realize that, we don’t need evil to find the love, simply because the love is within us all and all we need to do is, just reach down deep within ourselves and truly feel the warmth of the love, then share it with our good and thoughtful actions, instead of letting evil turn us into someone we truly are not.

With the ones who perished five years ago at the marathon, especially one eight year old boy named Martin Richards, who was full of life and with his sign that read, ” no more hurting people…………. Peace” we will never find out, of just how much good could of come from this young innocent boy? Those who perished and those who survived the terrible tragedy, are now victims from the terrible day and that will never change throughout their lives, they can either let the victimization stew within their thoughts throughout the rest of their journey’s, or they can move forwarded better and stronger, by who they truly are from such a terrible tragedy, showing nothing but good and a smile everyday, as they walk their paths throughout this journey of life.

All versions of the media want nothing more than to hold onto all the ugliness and the hatred, as this is what makes them money and keep s them creating all the drama around us, simply because it is their agenda and they don’t want to waiver from it, what the media tends to forget is, they are not as powerful as they think? The real power belongs to us the people, as we are the ones that can turn them off and ignore all that they are about. The problem now is, we have forgotten how to turn them off and we have become too addicted to all the drama around us today. Only if we get back to truly of who we are, then and only then, will we the people not only control who we are, but we then will take back control, of what the media has taken from us, with all their agendas and their fake news/ drama. Let’s get back to looking at events like the Boston marathon with the eyes of good, so then there will be no room at the Inn for any evil of any kind,

It’s too bad that we within this Society think that we need tragedies to see any good, we also make fun of others pains, just to forget our own pain, it doesn’t have to be this way, only if we had more faith in ourselves and in Jesus Christ, if only we made more trips to the house of God, then just maybe all the good will flow from each of us, with no sight of any evil anywhere within our futures. Our destiny’s are not about any evil, our true destiny’s starts within ourselves, as we truly feel the love of God within us and as that love warms us, then we can share that love with each other, instead of showing hatred or attacking one another with much ugliness. We all walk a path through this journey of life, we all start out the same at the beginning, as well as finish the journey the same as well, but what lies within the middle of the journey, lies completely within ourselves and the actions we take and bring to each other. The good versus evil talk lies completely within ourselves and until we get over ourselves and realize this, then we will always have evil to get around, on all our paths of this journey.

 

” The good will always win out over evil, we just have to have complete faith in ourselves as well as in Jesus Christ”

” When you look deeply into what you see, you can clearly see the good with no evil in sight”

” Five years since the terrible tragedy at the Boston marathon, shows just how good always wins over any evil”

” it’s the media that keeps the drama of the tragedies alive with their agendas, time to see clearly through the drama at the reality of our paths through the journey”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Peace for the World…….Peace within the World

With another Lenten journey upon us, time for my little friend……… Martin Richards, to once again make an appearance. ” No more hurting people………Peace”, this is a great quote by an eight year old boy, that was taken from our Society way too soon and in a way at the Boston Marathon bombing, that was totally an act of two Sick Demented Cowards.

Really!!! Do we need this amount of hatred that is around us today? We all tend to forget that, hatred is learned and takes great amounts of work to keep it going, while Love is deep within the hearts and souls of us all and really needs no work at all to spread among us all. School shootings, ISIS, the fact that we are way too negative of each other and now more recently, placing bombs in packages, like what is happening in Texas right now. COME ON PEOPLE!!! TIME TO WAKE UP!!! Before we ourselves destroy each other and this planet Earth, becomes nothing but desert land with nothing around.

We all hurt real pain in many ways and at different times within our lives, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. Sometimes the hurt is brought on by we ourselves and sometimes by others, who bring us this pain, just to hide deeply their pain and hurt. The only way to truly fix ourselves of our pain and hurt is to, address it, keep asking ourselves why over and over, til we actually get a truthful answer, but even more so, we totally need to simply accept our faults, accept responsibility for our actions and truly, accept of who we are, so we than can get back in touch with our true inner feelings of, Empathy and Love.

Empathy and Love are within the hearts and souls of us all, with the pain and hurt that comes to us, we then have the tendency to bury very deeply these two feelings, like they are not even there? Then as we do this, we learn from others around us, of how to hate and be very negative of each other, We are so afraid of what others will think of us, that we then become someone for who we truly are not. God did not creates us to be hateful or attack one another, this is on each of us as people, who walk a path through this journey of life. Responsibility of our actions goes a long way as we walk our paths and when we are responsible, we than can earn each others respect, which will further us in, walking this journey in the peace and happiness, that God envisioned, when he created us all.

It is totally okay for us to cry when we hurt with real pain, just as it is totally okay for us to, reach out when we need a helping hand, this is what helps us fix what we need to fix, so we can move forward and not backwards throughout this journey.  There is a great quote from the movie Forest Gump, ” Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know of what you’ll get”, So is this journey through life like the box of chocolates, as there are many paths to travel through the journey, you never know of what is waiting around each corner, we just have to stay true to ourselves, truly feel the love and empathy within our hearts and souls, so we than can move forward better and stronger, as the peace and happiness surrounds us, with no sign of any hatred. Then we can be in true peace, as God envisioned and Jesus taught us, when he came to us and walked his path with us, though this journey of life.

 

” Peace on Earth will eliminate and unlearn all the hate we have learned”

” The love along this Lenten journey, is our true love deep within our hearts and souls”

” Hate is learned and love is within each of us, keep saying it to ourselves, so we can truly feel the love within us”

” Pain and hurt will come to each of us at sometime, we just have to learn how to address and fix it to be better and stronger”

 

 

 

 

 

The competition will always take a back seat to true friendships

”  Throughout the clouds and no matter of how rough the waters, when we pull together, we come together in unity showing our love of one another always”

*** BowlingChef ***

 

The darkness from the darkest clouds will never last and they will only last as long as we ourselves let them last. We all walk our own paths through this journey of life, but that don’t mean that we can not walk together in harmony and unity, so we than can be better and stronger with every step. We all have our quirks as well as we all become set in our ways, but when we put all that a side, find common ground among each other, the sky is the limit as to how far each of us can not only go, but grow along this journey of life.

We all have our things we not only like to do, but what we enjoy doing as well, it is when we get away from these things that makes us feel incomplete. With the feelings of incomplete, we then become lost within the darkest of the clouds and the waters then churn up and become rough, as travel along the water will then become difficult to navigate. With the rough waters and the dark clouds, this journey of life will seem very difficult, but with clear skies and smooth waters, then this journey becomes as smooth as silk, as we then glide along our paths with no worries or troubles. We all have our troubles and deal with them in our own way, then as we realize that when we find common ground and come together in unity, then there are no troubles or worries great enough, to bring us down and stop us from walking our paths through this journey of life.

Some may look at a sporting event as great competition in which you have to beat another to move on? Okay part of that is true, but what we tend to over look and never look deeply into what we see is, that you can still compete against one another and still be great friends with each other. Competition will only bring out the worst in us, when we don’t look deeply into what we see, as when you can compete against someone and whether win, lose or draw, you are still the best of friends, now you can no matter what and no matter of how hard you compete, still find that common ground of togetherness and unity, in which to thrive always.

We in this Society are so lost within the dark clouds of the storm, that the rough water has swamped us all. we can not compete in a healthy  way against each other anymore, as all we want to do is pretty much hurt each other badly, or we don’t feel like we are competing? True competition will have us wish each other well before we compete and when we are finished, we then shake hands and congratulate for a game well played. True competition isn’t just competing against each other, it is the coming together in unity, for a game well played, as we then walk our paths through this journey of life in the peace and happiness we all so well deserve and as God wanted us to do from the very beginning.

 

” True competition has no pain as it brings us together in unity and helps us all become successful along this journey”

” The darkest of clouds from the storm are only temporary, the rough waters will never last, as our true spirit of competition will bring us together in unity always”

” Through the dark clouds and the rough waters there is common ground for which to stand, just that we have to look deeply into what we see”

” A Society with no competition is a dull society, but competition done correctly and on common ground with each other”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Words of Wisdom through all the real pain and hurt

1398913762364

 

My little Buddy needs to make another appearance with his words of wisdom, so we can get away from all the ugliness, hatred, real pain and hurt. The time is now to show the empathy that is within us all, share it with each other, so we all can walk our paths of this journey in the peace and happiness we all so deserve. Martin Richards had a heart of Gold, an innocent young eight year old boy, that was tragically taken from this Society, by two sick Individuals who were in need of some major psychological help. During the Boston Marathon bombings……… #bostonstrong  one of the bombs were placed right at the feet of where he was standing, he had no chance to avoid what was about to happen.

 

” We all have felt some real pain and hurt at sometime, but we have never let ourselves truly heal fully from the pain and hurt”

 

Since this #meto has been on twitter then with the way and the speed it has gone viral, clearly shows there are more than we ever imagined, that feel this real pain and hurt deep within. We have all been a Victim of something along our paths, whether from sex abuse, a Bully, or maybe been robbed and your personal belongings taken from where we live? Whatever the case may be, we have all suffered being a Victim of something, but instead of understanding our situation and fixing whatever we need to be better and stronger, we have gone totally in the other direction and deeply suppressed our true feelings and emotions to the point of, we not only lost our true empathy, we have lost what it feels like to truly feel the love of God, deep within our hearts and souls, so now we can’t share with each other.

Because of all this pain and hurt, there is also no trust of one another anywhere. It used to so that you knew your neighbor next door, now not only do we not know who our neighbors are, but we do not know of who anybody is anywhere, from where ever we may go. We have gone from walking our paths peacefully, to walking with chaos and crap all around us.

With all these Celebrities being outed for all their deranged actions, shows that the rest of us have no clue, of just how many Victims that has been created? Plus the ones who created the Victims has no clue of, just how much damage their actions have done. Denial may just look like a word, but it is a strong word, that has us rationalize away our actions, so we can make light of any heavy situations. Shame also may be just a word, but it is a very strong word, that will control every fiber of our being, if we really let it. Through the Denial we simply do not take responsibility for our actions and then rationalize them away and deflect them from ourselves, through the shame we then bury very deeply our true feelings and emotions, as to try to keep the real pain and hurt from affecting us anymore, we do this all within our subconscious, so we then can try to move forward in the reality of our Society, to show on the outside that we are as normal as normal can be, so others around us will think we are normal. We all walk a path through this journey of life, nobody is perfect along this journey, but when we respect and trust one another, then this journey will always bring us the peace and happiness we all so deserve.

 

”  Denial is a way to rationalize away any actions so we don’t have to take responsibility for the action”

” Shame is very powerful and forces us to deeply suppress our true feelings and emotions, to try to deflect the pain and hurt”

” Victims need the time and space to truly heal from the wounds, so they can move forward better and stronger”

” Before you take action to the action, first you have to think through the action in order to not bring the pain, hurt and shame, to those around you”

 

 

 

 

 

The Thrill of Victory……or the Agony of Defeat

IMG_20150104_124946

To honor the late Stuart Scott and to pray for all those who suffer this dreaded disease, plus with Breast cancer awareness this month, I thought this great quote could  rise once again. Stuart worked for the sports station ESPN for a long time, before this dreaded disease, finally took him from us. This quote by him was said during the yearly Espy awards, which he was honored with the lifetime achievement award. What makes this quote so great is, the fact you can tweak a few words and the quote takes on a whole new meaning.

Take out the first line and replace it with, ” To win playing the sport for which you love”, now you have a quote that will always live throughout the test of time, There are a lot of good quotes out there, what makes a quote great is, the tweaking of a word or two, giving the quote a whole new meaning, to inspire us as long as we walk a path through this journey of life.

Nobody ever wants to go through the Agony of defeat, but in able to experience the thrill of victory, you first have to be able to lose correctly, then you can respect the win, with a feeling of  pride.  True competition is missing within the World of sports today, it has been replaced with the feeling of ” I play for me so I can be rich” Yes sports today has become ” the world of Greed”, as the loyalty for players sticking with one team, just isn’t there anymore, then you have the owner’s of the teams dishing out big bucks to bring in certain players with good talent, so they can win Championships. True winning of Championships goes a lot deeper than buying a team, true winning of Championships gives you a feeling that is second to none, when it comes to having pride at what you do and when you learn to lose correctly, you then respect the winning, all day everyday.

With all the Hatred and the Ugliness that has consumed us all today, maybe a little theory here. that could be quite possibly the culprit of all the negativity? Sports is supposed to unite us as one, so we can be a Champion at whatever we want to do, but instead of uniting us, it is dividing us, with all the greed there is to be had, for playing a simple game, of whatever sport you chose to play. Then when you win multiple Championships, now others become jealous and will hate, just because you win all the time, now when you play a sport you love and you become great at it, others then get jealous and whine at every chance they get.  Is this fair treatment of each other? Absolutely not, Although if you want to try to be the best you can at whatever sport you play, then work hard, in becoming the best you can within the sport you love.

There is only one player today that plays his sport for the love of the game, has true loyalty for the team of which he plays for and isn’t in it just to get a fat pay check, Tom Brady is that player, he has only played for one team and brought that team five championships. so instead of other teams trying to dethrone the champs, they then take the easy way out and drive a wedge of hatred into the sport, which then divides further all who play the sport.

Sports when played the right way, brings us all together in Unity, players who play a sport for the love of the game, instead of the fat paycheck, then become role models to the young that watch them and then, try very hard to be like their role models, so they also can play a sport for which they love.

 

” The agony of defeat is what gives you the good feeling of the thrill of victory”

” Some quotes are a dime a dozen, but a great quote will always be priceless”

” Play a sport for the love of the game and unite all that are around you, instead of being consumed by greed and dividing the sport you play”

” Sports is supposed to be called the great unifier, but instead they are known as the great divider with all the hate and the ugliness”
