Get out and explore………

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Now that Winter is almost fully in the rearview mirror, it is about that time to start switching gears and getting ready to get out within mother nature once again. Enjoying all the true beauty that is around you, enjoying the sweet smell of the fresh clean air, without the smog and funky smells of the city. Get the kayak ready and stretch out the camping gear, plus this season I will be attaching a go-pro to the kayak and taking some great video for my U-tube channel, maybe even attaching to my backpack for some hiking video as well, I also thought I never would, but I have also started an Instagram for another platform to show my adventures in mother nature and share some great pictures as well as videos. so now you can follow my words here, then my adventure trips on my twitter, my Facebook page at tireless freelance writing, my Instagram and let’s not forget some great video on my U-tube channel as well.

I can’t wait to get out within mother nature and leave this broken society in the rearview mirror for a while, spend a week or two within the woods full of adventure without listening to all the drama at every turn, the biggest problem within this society is, we all get so wrapped up within the unwanted print news or the tv news, that we forget there is so much beauty all around us. Then there is this thing called work, yes we all need to work to make the ends meet and take whatever adventures we take, but it is also good to step away from the daily grind, step away from the daily drama and all gossip that we try to avoid, clear our minds of all the crap so we can heal ourselves of our troubles and start fresh with a clean slate, to move forward better and stronger as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

I don’t know about you? But I am done with all this election crap, all the attacking of each other on the debate stage, I mean if you can not run for a public office on your own merits without attacking your opponent, then maybe you shouldn’t be running for any office at all, that is just my opinion. Then there are all the lies and making yourself out to be somebody you are not no wonder why this society is so broken? Now there are some who live for all this drama, the bickering, the attacking and get so consumed with all this crap, that they then forget that there is this thing called life, that you need to actually work at, so you can walk your path as smoothly as you can. Plus there are these candidates that offer free stuff as their pitch to get into office and there are some who actually buy into this pitch, who do you think will actually pay for this free stuff? You guessed it, the ones that actually work very hard and pay their taxes, so those lazy types can buy into all the free talk.

Mother Nature has a lot more to offer you than any so-called candidate, that will offer you the world and never deliver on what they offer, true mother nature can at times show her fury, but also true that she has so much beauty for us all to see as well and even better, with each trip into her back yard, you will always see something different. Then there is all the different plant life, some that you will never see in your daily grind, the so many different species of wildlife for us all to enjoy to see in their natural habitats, now as we venture within mother nature let’s not forget two major rules, 1, we are now in the home of all the wildlife, so we need to respect them as we want others to respect our homes, 2, always leave no trace behind and respect the land for future visits, not to mention so we can always venture into mother nature to see all the beauty and not the crap that some may leave behind. We all walk our own paths through this journey of life, so if we all come together in unity, respect each other, show empathy of each other, then just maybe we can eliminate all the crap, the hatred, and the ugliness, as we all move forward in peace and harmony always.

 

” The beauty of mother nature is all around us we just have to get out and explore”

 

” Respect goes a long way when each one of us does it together”

 

” If you can not run for an office on your own merits then maybe you should not run for that office”

 

” Mother nature is free and unlike what some may say you can actually venture out and enjoy all her beauty”

 

 

40-day journey well worth any sacrifice

 

 

da9b9-lent_2013_40days

 

With yet another Lenten season upon us and as the 40-day journey has begun with us going to church and having the ashes placed on our foreheads, let us all sacrifice something within our lives much the same as Jesus did, showing our faith in the Lord and we haven’t forgotten what he did for us all when he walked his journey here with us.

Jesus also walked this 40-day journey and was confronted by many a temptation, with the biggest temptation coming from Satan himself. We like Jesus get tempted by the power of temptation many times through this journey but as Jesus kept the faith in his father as well as himself, showed to us all that even with the power of temptation bearing down on our souls, when we stay true to who we are when we keep the faith in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, we to can overcome all temptation and no matter how hard we struggle, we can walk our paths through this journey of life, better and stronger and reach for the stars as there is no force strong enough to conquer us as we move forward, just as Jesus did throughout the 40-day journey.

The Lenten season is one of the most special times of the year, but if you have lost all faith in yourself and Jesus Christ, have become a non-believer in any kind of higher power,  then this time of year will have you wondering with no direction and susceptible to any kind of temptation that may come your way. Temptation is a very powerful force that will control everything in its path, yes it can suck you in but it will also spit you out just as fast and it really does not care for the condition it may leave you. We all will be tempted by each other as well. we see one with a lifestyle you dream of, then wonder why you can not have the same? We may try but then end up with much more issues then we can handle, when we just simply be who we truly are, sacrifice when we need to move forward better, so we then can have the strength to resist all temptation that may knock us down and keep us stepping backward instead of moving forward.

Temptation is quite simply Satan trying to take control of us all as well as everything else within this world, temptation at times will come with a sugar coating surrounded by whip cream and cherries, it will promise us the world but never deliver on its promise. When we stay true to who we are, resist all that the temptation may bring to us, never lose the faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ, then we can resist and conquer all that temptation may bring to us, so we may prosper and walk our paths of this journey through life, in the peace and happiness that God envisioned for us all. You can clearly see within this society of today, that there are so many that have given in to temptation, so many that have lost the faith in themselves as well as Jesus Christ and because of that we are all traveling in so many directions, that we all have lost our way and there is no GPS made that will bring us back in the right direction, only Jesus himself can do this, but as we have let Satan control us through the temptations, we do not even give Jesus a thought, let alone even having any faith at all.

So as we walk yet another 40-day journey through lent, let us walk it with a purpose, let us walk it with meaning, as we sacrifice as Jesus did, learn that when we resist the temptation that not all is lost and the world will not end, as with the total belief in ourselves and in Jesus Christ, we can get back to who we truly are, we can get back to walking our paths with confidence, so this journey through life will have a meaning once again, it will have a true direction without wandering in circles, through temptation we become stripped from being of who we truly are and lose sight of what this journey is really about. With the total belief in ourselves and Jesus Christ, we then can truly find that path of righteousness, which Jesus told us about as he walked this journey with us, but right now as we have become overwhelmed with the power of temptation, we are all walking in so many different directions, that we have lost the sight of true reality which will lead us nowhere and further away from, having any faith in ourselves or Jesus Christ.

That old saying of, ” keeping up with the Jones” is so far from the truth, but as we become tempted to do so, we find that what may be good for one, may not be good for another. This journey is full of many paths as well as many temptations, but the only way to walk this journey confidently is, to be truly of who we are and to have complete faith in Jesus Christ, as he showed us in his 40-day journey, just how much he loved us, by the true sacrifice he made for each one of us. It is not about forcing oneself and your beliefs on each other, as it is totally about loving one another, no matter of what may cross our paths and when we walk our paths correctly, then this journey through life will be that of peace and happiness for us all, so as we take stock in our lives in this Lenten season, let us all throw out what we do not need and sacrifice these things, so we then can move forward with what is important, as we then follow the lead of Jesus Christ, away from all temptation, to be better moving forward and as we show respect, dignity, and love toward one another always, throughout this journey of life.

 

” The season of lent is one of sacrifice, much like Jesus did while he showed his true love toward all”

 

” During the season of Lent, we should take stock in our lives sacrifice what we do not need and move forward better with only what we need”

 

” 40 days and 40 nights to get back to who we truly are and move forward better and stronger”

 

” Temptation is a strong force but we are stronger when we stay true to who we are”

 

 

 

 

Sometimes the best precaution is…………..” common sense”

Slide 25 of 50: Workers with sanitizing equipment disinfect at the Shanghai railway station in Shanghai, China, as the country is hit by an outbreak of a new coronavirus, February 27, 2020. REUTERS/Aly Song

I guess you can say that I am with Mark Levin on this one, Mark is a V-Jay on the Blaze with Glen Beck, saying that he would rather take the advice of a healthcare official and not from Pelosi or Schumer. It is pretty sad when our so called leaders have to politicize even a virus, simply because they are so far in denial, they can not see the true reality of anything they look at. Now in this day and age with all the technology and social platforms, it is very true that everything spreads like wildfire in every direction around us, tragedies and natural disasters can be seen within minutes on all the social platforms, then you add in a media that will stop at nothing to achieve their big drama agendas, now you will have anything the size of a mogul, turn into the size of a mountain or even bigger.

Now I get the fact that this Coronavirus is crippling countries with many lives being lost, but unlike what some on the left are saying, there are safety measures being taken by all the countries, but what we of today simply forget is, when we use our common sense, we then don’t need our Governments to dictate what we should do and only aid us all to be safe moving forward. This Coronavirus is spreading around the world kind of like the virus of 1918, true 99% of us were not around then and maybe very few are still here from that time, but either way, we are not going to remember what happened 102 years ago, which makes it that much more important to glance back to move forward better and stronger, as the virus from 1918 took the lives of 50,000,000 people and what the media of today will not tell you is, both these viruses originated in China, so what is wrong with knowing the truth, so we can truly help fix what we need to fix, as we all walk our paths through this journey of life.

Very true there have been many more diseases and viruses that have overcome us throughout the history of us all walking through this journey of life, so instead of being like those on the far left and pointing the finger of blame in any way that they can for their agendas, maybe we should take a look back within history from time to time, so we then can be a bit more informed, use the common sense that is within us all, as we all move forward and not backward, throughout this journey of life. Yes within this society of great technology and the fact that we the people can be so dumb, that instead of using our social media platforms for good and informing us ahead of time for what may be coming, instead, we let the far-left liberal media dictate to us through their platforms of all the drama of everything, whether that drama be true or “Fake”. It is never too late to change what we may be doing, as change is also a huge part of this journey, the change will come to us in many different ways and when we accept change and adapt to the change, then the change shouldn’t be all that scary and come with minimal pain to us all, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” Change can scare the crap out of us all, it can bring great pain as well, but when we accept and adapt to it properly can be just as beautiful than this journey of life”

 

” Precaution is kind of like preventive medicine, we document it within our brains and let common sense do its thing”

 

” Sometimes we need to glance back in time to adjust and fix what we may be doing wrong now moving forward”

 

 

 

America the beautiful

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

America has so much beauty within the borders of this great country, you just have to get out and see it all. No matter where you go there is beauty everywhere, just that within this broken society and with the left bias media spreading its hate rhetoric, it becomes very difficult to see through the clouds of all the crap. Not really are all the occupants within this society all bad, just that the fake news agendas will want us to think that, so they can sell their copies, just to rob us of our hard-earned monies as they live their plush exotic lifestyles.

America was built on blood, sweat, tears and hard work, the founding fathers worked hard at setting in stone the guidelines for their generation and all generations that follow them, so we all can not only experience but enjoy all the true beauty all around us. Right now within this society and what has made it become divided and full of ugliness is, we have one of the two major parties that are so deep within the walls of denial, that they have lost all sight of reality. Now because they are in denial they are trying really hard for the rest of us to follow them within their little corrupt worlds, they have grabbed the media and turned them into their world of corruption and when the rest of us go against or ignore them, we then become an outcast and are now divided from them. I say you know what? let them be all alone in their little world of corruption, so the rest of us join together and get out to see all the true beauty that is around us, so we can walk our paths through this journey of life, in the peace and happiness that God had envisioned for us all.

Very true that there is so much beauty no matter where you go around this planet, but within this great country of America the beauty is endless, especially when you venture out within Mother Nature. Plus we are not the only ones here either, there is so much wildlife around us as well, but within the clouds of our judgments, we only think we are here alone. Our actions of today just may become another’s misfortune of tomorrow? What we do to ourselves, each other and all that we may encounter along this journey does not have to dictate how we walk this journey, but if we treat each other with love, respect, and dignity, then we need not worry of anything or anybody dictating this journey for us.

America the beautiful a country with so much grandeur, you need to open your eyes widely, open your mind without being so close-minded, stop judging each other on appearance without getting to know each other, I remember as a kid we knew our neighbors, not so much now as we walk the streets of our neighborhoods and not only not recognize our neighbors, we do not even give the time of day to each other as well. It is a whole different world today than that of yesteryear and it all starts with, each one of us getting outside to truly see the beauty and not being consumed with all the corruption, the hatred or the ugliness that some may try to force on us. We have to be better than that, so we then can walk our paths of this journey as peaceful and as happy as we can moving forward.

 

” Our actions of today just may become another’s misfortunes of tomorrow”

 

” With love respect and dignity then what may be dictated to us will come in pleasure and not in ugliness”

 

” The true beauty is all around us we just have to step out of the box and truly see all the beauty then appreciate it moving forward”

 

 

Focus in on what is around you

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

With focus comes everything in its place, but when you are not focused then everything becomes in such disarray, everything is like it is out of place and you constantly keep trying to rearrange things, nothing ever is right there in sight and we always are looking for whatever it is we are looking for. Life itself becomes out of whack because without focus, then even as we walk our paths of this journey, everything around us we then overlook and walk right by without looking deeply at what we are seeing.

When we are out of focus even the simplest things become very difficult to tackle, we become frustrated and out of sorts, we tend to lose faith and confidence in ourselves as we think we can not do anything, which leads to our self-esteem to become nonexistent and disappear. Without the focus, we then lose all sight of true success, the true focus isn’t just looking at something clearly, true focus comes from deep within and is what we have so we then can see clearly of everything around us.

When we are in focus as we walk our paths of this journey, we then can walk with confidence as everything we do is at the very best of our abilities, we can truly feel our true feelings and emotions, everything we tackle we do so with the utmost confidence and succeed at everything we do, our self-esteem is at the strongest it can be, as we then will do everything and anything to the best of our abilities, even if we have never done the project before, nothing we will fear as fear will never scare us, we will see everything with clarity as the focus will have us see everything around us.

Very true that this focus can be stripped from us with the life events that may come to us and as these events whether of our own actions or from the actions of another, they will have us come out of focus until we dig down deep and truly fix what we need, to regain the focus to walk in confidence once again. Depending on the event and the pain/hurt that may overcome us, we may never regain the focus as now we procrastinate in order to hide the pain and hurt from each other and we try to escape as much of the pain and hurt we can, nobody ever wants to be in the clutches of any kind of pain and hurt, as it will change us into someone for who we truly are not, but if we only handle it correctly, then we can escape the clutches much quicker, so we can get back to who we are, get back to being in focus, get back to walking our paths with confidence, then we can truly feel our true feelings and emotions and walk within this journey in the peace and happiness, that Jesus has shown us when he to came and walked his journey here with us.

Even Jesus struggled at times, but when he put his true faith in his father, then the focus came back to him as well, how else you think he sacrificed himself and put himself through all the pain and hurt, so we could be free from all the pain and hurt? Jesus suffered greatly so we shall not, but because we have lost the faith in Jesus, we now have to live with the sufferings and become out of focus of everything around us, all we truly need is to get back to having true faith in Jesus, so we then can be in focus and see clearly of all that is around us and be totally in the peace and happiness, as Jesus showed us along this journey through life.

 

” Nothing we will ever fear, as fear will never scare us”

 

” Real focus will have us look deeply into what we see”

 

” Without focus, we then will become someone for who we truly are not”

 

” When we are focused then everything around we shall see clearly as we walk with confidence”

 

 

The Journey to the top

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

The journey to the top can encompass many things, it’s not just hiking within the wilderness and reaching the summit of a mountain, it is also about reaching the pinnacle of your career and working your way to the top within the company you work. Both can and will be a lot of work, one being the hike up a mountain will drain you both physically and mentally, while depending on where you work it can involve more mental than physical? No matter which journey you are on, it will bring you great rewards when you achieve all that you want to achieve, especially when you reach the summit and not only breathe in the fresh air, but totally take in all the true beauty all around you.

The journey through the wilderness on your way to the summit of the mountain will hold so much beauty around you, that it keeps all your senses in tune to everything like the birds singing from tree to tree, the branches whistling as they sway in the breeze from the air, your sense of smell coming alive as the fresh aroma of the fresh air the plants and the wildflowers make your nose tickle with envy, your ears seem to be more active and amplified as all the sounds within nature have them totally in tune with all that is around you and will have you hear even a twig snap from a good distance away, then as you look out at what you are seeing, your eyes then will have you more in focus with all that you may come across as you walk the journey to the summit of the mountain and as you reach the summit of the mountain, now you really see clearly for many miles all around you.

The journey within the path you take in your career choice is a whole lot different than the journey to the summit of the mountain, the drive you have within you so you can work to reach the pinnacle of your career is similar but different as you work hard in your career, you now lose out on the true beauty around you, as you focus solely on the job and reaching the summit within the company you work. Now we all can not reach the summit within our career choices, but we all can reach the summits of the mountains we chose to walk a path upon, within our careers and with all our hard work, now we become too tired to venture out within an adventure, we then stay within our inner circles without getting out within nature, seeing all the same things day after day, keeping the same routines from week to week, then not only taking everything for granted but totally forgetting that there is a whole lot more out there and a whole lot more beauty around us as well. True that we need the journey within our careers to make ends meet, but if we do not acknowledge all the other journeys also, now the path we walk through this journey of life, just may become boring and have us wandering, instead of actually walking with confidence, all the little journeys within this one big journey.

The journey to the top of anything can and will come with some work on our part, but that’s just it, we need to work in order to reap all the benefits no matter what the journey for which we walk. Nothing comes easy and nothing will come freely, which is why we work hard, so we then can reap all the benefits and see all the true beauty that is all around us, at every turn along our paths of this journey through life.

 

” The journey to the top comes in many different ways and will always reward us in just as many ways as well”

 

” There is much beauty all around us with the key being we just need to focus and truly look deeply into what we see”

 

” When we are out of focus then no matter what we look at will never be clear for us to see”

 

 

Within the walls of Washington DC

Slide 8 of 59: In this image from video, Senators vote to table an amendment by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., during the impeachment trial against President Donald Trump in the Senate at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2020. (Senate Television via AP)

Okay, so here we go again except this time we are within the walls of the Senate. Now I get the fact that we need the two-party system in order for all to balance out, but when the two parties just can not get together on the same page and work together, then it is time to change the Individuals within the parties so our so-called leaders can actually lead and work for the hefty salaries they are getting, not to mention the free healthcare as well.

A Politician will say whatever they can to us, just for us to like them and vote for them, then as they enter within these walls, they lose sight of everything especially what they said before we voted for them, they walk within these walls with only one purpose and that is the purpose of themselves and what they can do for themselves, including the fact that they have their hands out to whoever will pay them the highest for their vote within these walls. A true Politician does not start out this way but they learn over time of how to do this and get away with it, as most Politicians are Lawyers, a Lawyer learns over time how to take certain words and spin them, so they can best represent their clients, which they then learn how to manipulate the system the best they can, to reap themselves higher profits as the rest of us pays more dearly then just within our wallets.

Right now within the walls of Washington DC, there are two parties, one that is far on the left and so far within the grasp of denial, that they have lost all sight of true reality. Then there is another party that is on the right, but some are okay and get it, yet a lot simply have no spine, as there is no one calling out or helping these denial ridden people out of the grasp of the denial. ” The entire Democratic party is so far in denial, they have lost sight of all reality”. Simply because the President we have now did not fit their current model of what they think a President should be, you now have an entire party doing whatever they can to disrupt this seated President and totally forgetting on the ones who put them all in the offices they hold. When you are within the walls of denial the power is so great, you then become someone for who you truly are not, you live within this fake reality only because you can dictate better of what you are doing, without realizing that you are only furthering the pain of yourself and all those around you. So until the entire Democratic party wakes up out of the grasp of denial, they will never see reality as the rest of us do, for which they will keep on the road of fake reality and not seeing anything eye to eye with whoever looks them in the eyes.

This is a sad state of affairs for us all here in America, as because of the nonactions from a party so deep within the grasp of denial, they will never do anything to help us be better and stronger moving forward, for they will only try to get us to move backward as they are doing. Common Sense is another thing that while in denial you lose sight of as it becomes non-existent anywhere around you, common sense is never to common when you are within denial, only because you are so concerned with escaping the pain and the hurt, that you only think of that and will do anything to get it done, while those around you become like a figment of your imagination. This entire Democratic party is so far in denial and can only see one thing and that is to end the job of a seated President that we the people put into the office, only because he is not one of them for them to control. Even through all the crap and the denial within the walls of Washington DC, President Donald Trump is still doing the job he promised when he ran as Candidate Trump, not to mention the fact that this economy is booming with the lowest numbers of unemployment in all categories, but when you have one party within denial, no matter what this President does, they will never walk together with our President, let alone walk together with their peers, to actually do the job that they were voted in to do. The time is now to end the time of a lot of the long term Democrats within the grasp of denial, put some new bodies in there that will actually work for we the people and actually help our President to make and keep America great for all that walk this land.

 

” Denial is a strong power deep within us and so strong that it will turn us into someone for who we truly are not”

 

” There is so much corruption within the walls of Washington DC and we now have a President doing as he says when he was a candidate”

 

” We pay our leaders heavily to lead us to be better and stronger, not to fill us with more drama and corruption at every turn”

 

 

Even a Background has it’s Background

 

Just as this picture has a beautiful background full of tree’s and mountains, a  society with all its occupants has it’s background as well. There are so many backgrounds it can be very overwhelming to comprehend, not just we the people of a society have the background to live with, but everything around us has their backgrounds to live with as well, the background is part of our past whether we like it or not?

Now some backgrounds may come with much pain and hurt and some may be as smooth as silk? But the background is a background and they do not have to dictate how we walk our paths through this journey of life. Sometimes things happen in our past whether with our own actions or the actions of another towards us, then as we try to move forward, that makes our past become our background, whether we accept it or not? When we do not accept it and do not fix what we need to fix, now our futures become cluttered with self-doubt, lack of faith in ourselves with no hope, as we try to walk our paths. You can never erase any past no matter what, as the past is part of our background and will never go away. Now if you try to wipe out a past without addressing the background, then you will have many trying to move forward with a lot of unnecessary pain and hurt, not too mention trying to move forward not being true of who you are.

We all have a past that becomes our background with many issues and stuff we may not be proud of, but if we never address these issues and fix what we need to fix, now we have a society with many backgrounds that the pain and hurt becomes so great, we will do anything to rid ourselves from the pain, even if we then become someone for who we are not. There are a lot of good backgrounds out there, but yet there are many backgrounds that none of us can ever be proud of, with that said……… There is no background that can not be fixed, so we then can move forward better and stronger.

Throughout this society of backgrounds and pasts, we will never hold ourselves accountable whether the background was from our own actions or the actions of another, so instead, we then hide very deeply within a background that we are ashamed of, then let the shame of it all, take complete control of ourselves moving forward, when we are shamed into going into hiding, not only do we become fake on the outside, we also become fake on the inside, which then has us losing the feeling of our true emotions, to keep further pain and hurt from coming to us.

To some point, we all within this society have been shamed at one time or another, we all have at least one thing in our pasts that keep us hiding our background from each other, while we let the shame control of who we truly are. Shame is very like Denial and they both go hand and hand, they both will have you become part of a world that is not real, a world that you yourself try to make it as real as you can only to escape all the pain and hurt from the real reality. We become so lost along our paths that we never truly fix what we need, so we can truly move forward in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.

What is truly in the background you ask? There are many different backgrounds within this society and we all have very different backgrounds from each other which makes us all unique to each other. Some backgrounds are not all good with much happiness, most backgrounds come with great pain and hurt, which then has us hiding in plain sight, just to try to escape all the pain and hurt, then through all the pain and hurt we then suffer from the shame and denial of these backgrounds, without trying to fix what we need to move forward in peace, so we then move forward with how we think is the best way, which is the burying of our true feelings and emotions, becoming someone we truly are not, as we then portray ourselves as okay, when in reality we are not.

The many facets of a background may come in many ways and within a society of many, now there are many backgrounds all around, but what we tend to overlook is, a background can be adjusted with the right fix, just that we have to want the fix, so we then can move forward along our paths, throughout this journey of life to be better and stronger with each step we take.

 

” A background is a past and you just can not erase a past to make the background better”

 

” Even Natures background isn’t all Roses, it to will come with some tragic events as well”

 

” We all have our backgrounds and we all have our pasts, they do not have to dictate how we walk through this journey of life”

 

 

The Patriot way……I am a Patriot

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

” They were overjoyed at seeing the star, and on entering the house they saw the child with Mary his mother, they prostrated themselves and did him homage. Then they opened their treasures and offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh  ”

Mt 2: 10 11

 

To all the fans of the New England Patriots, the Eagle has landed. Now this season compared to all the other seasons of the last twenty years was a very interesting season, to say the least. The biggest question to this team going into what is going to be a very interesting offseason is, should Tom Brady retire or leave what has become his home for another team and not just another team, but a team that has much more uncertainty then this team of the 2019 Patriots. Tom’s legacy is the Patriots and to go to another team, could very much damage that legacy moving forward. Now some of your armchair Quarterbacks who think they know the game better than Tom or even Bill, are going to say whatever they may about Tom and this team, they will even argue that Tom has lost the zip on his throwing of the football, but from what I saw after yesterdays game, Tom can still zip that ball with authority and into tight spaces where only his receivers can get it. The Receivers are whats to be really looked at seriously, the only one he has and he trusts is Edleman and when the opponent knows this and takes Jules out of the game, you now have a Patriot offense that becomes very predictable and easy to zone in on. Now yes Tom has made many no-name Receivers into a household name within the NFL in the past, so one will argue that he can not and should retire? If you really look at the game within the game as Tom and Bill do every day, the biggest thing with turning a nobody Receiver into a star is, if you do not trust the one that is the Receiver to do his job then you really can not be as effective as you were in the past. Trust no matter what sport you are playing, in conjunction with having guys on the team that can and will do their job, is the biggest reason why the Patriots have six Championships and some franchises struggling to even make the playoffs.

Now there will be a lot of your drama queen sports media types and your Monday Quarterback types that will say the Dynasty is over? On the contrary, as long as you have Tom Brady and Bill Bellichek, the Dynasty continues just with a much different supporting cast around those two. Tom has made New England his home and Robert Kraft looks at Tom as his adopted son, I find it very hard to see Tom leaving this organization he has worked so hard to help build. It is kind of like we as Individuals being born into a family, we grow within this family and help build a strong bond and a foundation, so to just up and leave that really isn’t that easy. True there will be struggles as the good times never last, but when the bad times come it is very easy to just walk away, but if you want to be better and stronger moving forward, you have to fight through the bad times, fight through the struggles, which not only makes you better and stronger but also makes your team better and stronger moving forward. Then there is the issue of Josh McDaniels, this guy is a great Offensive Coordinator and my opinion of this is when you are great at something you keep doing what you are great at as you receive the Respect of your Peers, Josh left for the Broncos and became a Head Coach and that didn’t work out too good, I say he stays here with Tom and Bill to help build this team with some very different supporting cast members and who knows? Bill, as well as Tom, will retire someday, then you can take the respect you earned and excel as the next coach of the New England Patriots.

Now some of your armchair Quarterbacks will say that football is a game and very different then this journey through life, I say very different as the game of football as well as other team sports only help you grow stronger as you walk your path through this journey. When you are an individual on a team this will make the game very hard for you, just as when you are an Individual walking this journey with no one around you, makes for a very difficult journey with many struggles. Just look at the walls within Washington DC with our so-called leaders, you have two teams that are supposed to be working together for the good of the people in the Democrats and the Republicans, but instead, right now you have a bunch of Individuals who are doing nothing but argue with each other and not doing their jobs. So true you can say two very different ideologies, but in reality, they are very much the same and when you have common sense, you can clearly see just how similar they are. Just as you have a team coming together showing trust of each other and doing their jobs to win a Championship and when you have a Government coming together through trust and unity, now you can have a society coming together in unity instead of being divided with much ugliness and hatred at every turn. Team sports and the journey of life are so similar, but if you never look deeply at what you see, then maybe you should look in the mirror as maybe you have become part of the problem, instead of being part of the solution for each one of us to become better and stronger, as we all walk a path through this journey of life.

 

” The Patriot way maybe for a team in the NFL, but to be a Patriot of a country you have to do it similar as all the other Patriots by making it the countries way”

 

” I know we all have our own opinions but we also all have our own Butt holes as well”

 

” Armchair Quarterbacks and the sports media all have one thing in common,  they both like to create their own drama and bring it to all of us, making them all Drama Queens”

 

 

Small Town America

See the source image

The beauty of small-town America lives in many areas within this great country, now there are many small towns through the years that have not lived on for a variety of reasons and that is sad because small-town America was once the fabric that made this country truly great. A lot of these small towns have become what we know today as a Ghost town, these Ghost towns are deep in history, but once again we forget these places simply because we have become too lazy to learn the history instead, we want to think we are the trailblazer only because we are so engulfed in the idea of being in the limelight, that we forget that America had a past and a great past at that.

I lived in the great state of Colorado for some time, plenty long enough that I explored many areas within this state, whether on the beaten path or off the beaten path, as I had a four-wheel-drive truck, that would get me into a lot of places that a normal vehicle could not go. I drove up across mosquito pass from Breckenridge to Leadville, as high as 13,500 feet, this pass was also the old pony express route that would deliver the mail through all kinds of weather and what took me eight to ten hours, depending on me stopping at the old-time Ghost towns to view, would of taken the pony express two to four weeks to travel depending on the weather. Then there was another Ghost town just outside of Minturn, Colorado that was built literally on the side of a mountain, but people had to leave their homes as the water supply had lead in it, that forced them out. There were many small towns similar all through the state of Colorado it makes for a great state to visit and learn of the true history of America. There is a small town about forty minutes west of Denver called Georgetown, this was once a very vibrant silver mining town, that when times change and the silver wasn’t needed as much, went through some difficult times, a lot had left the town, but the ones who stayed had to think outside the box, as to keep this beautiful small town from turning into yet another Ghost town.

There are many small towns throughout this country of America, some still vibrant today as they had to reinvent themselves to stay afloat, while many others fell to become Ghost towns that are just buildings with no vibrancy or movement from Mankind. Within this society today we take so much for granted and the biggest thing is, we don’t take the time to learn from these pasts, so we then can move forward better and stronger. There is so much we can learn from these small towns, but yet today we are so arrogant that we think we are better than anything from our past? Within these small towns, you had people like you and me today, there are a few who came out of the small towns and made their marks within this country, now some had big impacts and are in the history books, some just for a short time which we do not really look at, then there are the ones who left the small towns to never again looked back? They have forgotten of their roots and have moved forward with only themselves on their mind, we of this society in a lot of ways are doing this now, as when we work our way up within the companies we work, we tend to forget of what it took to get to where we are today. There is a lot more to this journey through life then what is around us at the present time, the problem then lies with each of us not taking the time to explore and see some of what America was, instead we want to think that we are the smart ones and the trailblazers of this country, but if it wasn’t for America’s past and the small towns that built the foundation of this country, then truly where would we all be today?

Everything around you started somewhere, whether a small town or even that technology device in your hand, if you never look back in the past and learn from it, then moving forward will be either difficult or just the fact of, we become wanderers instead of truly walking our paths through this journey of life. For me the best way I have learned of these small towns, was the time spent in the great state of Colorado, only because when I wasn’t working I was exploring and not just what was on the beaten path, I ventured off the beaten path and came across some of America’s smallest towns that are now forgotten Ghost towns, that now is a time that most of us have forgotten with no desire to ever learn from.

 

” The small towns of America which some have reinvented themselves while others have become a forgotten Ghost town”

 

” A true trailblazer of any country will explore all of that country, learn all they can to help the country become truly great in the world today”

 

” The Ghost towns of yesteryear have become forgotten from this society, but at one time it was vibrant and what helped build the foundation of this great country”
