There is no ” I” in Team……..

To be a Champion in any team sport, comes down to the fact that, it’s not about one or two guys, it is totally a team effort and the Boston Bruins have proved that with the great season they are having. On the verge of yet another Stanley cup victory and the way they as a team rebounded from a lack luster performance in game two, they go two games to one in game three, in the best of a seven game series. Game three wasn’t just a win for the Bruins, they did so in the house of the St. Louis blues and in a dominating way, final score was seven to two, while going four for four on the power play also. This team has a good mix of veteran players, as well as great young talent, with a coach that has his finger on the pulse of each game. Chemistry is another part of being a true champion, it is how you are respected by your teammates, knowing your teammates so you can move as one on the ice with pin point passing, as you gain control of the puck away from the other team. The team whether on the ice or off the ice, has to bond together and be ready to battle for each other, like being a family, with the coaches being the parents of the family. These Boston Bruins are a special group, that have come together in harmony, as they put aside the ego’s to work hard at achieving the most prestigious trophy in all of sports…………….. Lord’s Stanley cup.

The Bruins might of dominated in last nights game three match up, but let’s not forget the St. Louis Blues, this team is built very similar to the Bruins, I am sure game four these Blues will be ready to battle once again, the Bruins will have to be ready for the fight and respond as they did in game three. To get this far and be the last two teams standing within the league, with a chance of being the champions of the hockey world, says a lot of both these teams, now with these Bruins being two wins away from the coveted prize, is no time to become comfortable, as the last two wins are just as hard as the last fourteen. For those true fans of the game of hockey, you have basically two seasons in one and we the fans are blessed with such a great game, now through the years the game has had some changes to it, like being a much faster game then years before, but the basics of the game stay in tact, like the first season being the regular season and the second season being the playoffs. With the playoffs there is a slogan we call ” Mission sixteen”, basically we call it that because it takes sixteen wins to win the playoffs and become the keeper of Lord’s Stanley’s cup.

My earliest memory of these Bruins was also against the St. Louis Blues, with the now famous greatest player to ever lace up the skates………… He is Bobby Orr and with an assist from Derek Sanderson, the rest is history with Bobby flying through the air in front of the goalie, for the goal and the winner of Lord’s Stanley’s cup. The Boston Bruins have a rich history and being one of the six original teams within the National Hockey League, not too mention some of the great hockey talent to wear the spoke “B” on their chest, is the reason why I myself Bleed black and gold. With two more wins this special team of the Boston Bruins can cement their names within the rich history of the organization.

Like Tom Brady has become the G. O. A. T. of the football world, we here in the city of Boston has witnessed two G. O. A. T’s of their sports, with Tom Brady and Bobby Orr. There is a lot of sports history here in the city of Boston and with the Bruins on the brink of winning a championship, along with the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots all in the same season, which hasn’t been done since the season of 1935/1936, truly gives this city of Boston the title of ” Titletown U. S. A.”.

I love the game of hockey, played the game when I was younger and with my favorite team so deep in the playoffs, like two wins away from winning Lord’s Stanley’s cup deep, it is very exciting right now, with all eyes on this special team. A team that has battled adversity all season, a team that has bonded together more than a team, they have bonded like a family on and off the ice and has been fun too watch this bonding all season. This team has been resilient all season and watching them in game two and game three, proves just how resilient they are, with an ugly performance in two, and a great performance in three. Would love to see this team finish mission sixteen, as not just for the reward for the players on a great season, but for the third time in the same season, the city of Boston can cue the Duck boats once again, for this type of celebration will never get old, especially with my favorite team.

” In team sports there is never an I, as it takes the whole team to work as one and become a true champion”

” The Stanley cup is the most prestigious and hardest trophy to win of all the sports, which makes hockey the coolest game on ice”

” To be a G. O. A. T. of your sport means that you are the Greatest Of All Time”

” Mission 16 in the game of hockey starts with the playoffs as you are on a mission to win 16 more games to be a true champion of the sport you play and love”

Strong powerful leadership

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

The American Bald Eagle is a big, strong and powerful bird that rules the sky, this bird isn’t our symbol because it is weak, this bird is our symbol, cause it is a true symbol for those of which it represents.  I love this picture on so many levels, but the biggest thing is, just how majestic this bird is, not too mention of how cool this picture is of the Eagle watching out for all that is below.

President Donald Trump last night with his speech, showed just what a true Leader is all about, someone that is not afraid to stand his ground for all who he serves, someone that knows how to delegate and get the job done. Someone who is not afraid to stand up to a Bully or a Terrorist and someone who is smart enough to give our armed service men and woman, the tools and resources needed, so they can do their jobs correctly. You want to end all the ugliness that is around us all today, it starts with a true Leader, that knows how to lead and has all our best interests in mind with his actions.

You want an example of failed Leadership, you don’t have to look any further, then the failed Leadership of the National Football League, here is a guy by the name of Roger Goodell. This guy collects a handsome salary, but yet lacks the skills needed to lead an organization. Right now in the NFL you have player’s that will refuse to stand to the National Anthem? Really!!! These players are getting paid ridiculous amounts of money playing a game. These players are blessed with a talent and the ability to play a sport that they love, but yet they are so dumb when they use their sport, to highlight their platform. There is a time and a place for everything, just that a sporting event is no place to protest against the music of your country, especially when your getting paid big money within that Country you are playing in. I am aware of this thing called ” freedom of speech”, but when your playing a sport you love and for big money as well, not too mention looked up to as a role model to guide the young and steer them in the right direction, you have to pick your battles wisely and do your protests in other venues. Now if the NFL had a true Leader, just maybe these Individuals who refuse to stand for the National Anthem of a Country, who many have died, just so they can get paid big money to play a sport which they love, will no longer get to play their sport. It’s a respect thing and if you want others to respect you, then you need to respect all that is around you. Just maybe the Coaches of these teams should stand up to these Individuals and simply not let them play and have them become a bench warmer, for those who show respect for the National Anthem of the country for which they play.

President Donald Trump is quickly becoming one of the best Presidents of my lifetime. He is someone that does what he says and says what he means. President Trump is a Business man yes………. but to be as successful as he has been, you not only have to be smart, you have to be able to be a great leader, that can adapt to any situation, as well as know how to delegate to those around you, so you can focus on what you need to focus on, then you can walk your path of this journey through life, to be better and stronger moving forward.

 

” Some may be born to be a leader, but a true leader is never born”

” The American Bald Eagle……. So majestic but yet so powerful, a great symbol for America showing strength and freedom, while soaring the skies so graceful”

” Failed leadership will never work, as it will only compound the issues and bring out the ugliness instead of beauty”

” To be respected you first need to respect moving forward throughout this journey”

 

The sun shines over the City of Chicago

With the Chicago Cubs winning the World Series last night and being seventy one years since they have even been on the big stage, plus not winning it for one hundred and eight years, this win is bigger than even the sport of baseball itself.

They say it was the curse of the Goat? I understand the whole story of a person bringing their pet Goat to the games, then being told not to bring the Goat anymore, but seriously, you think a Goat had to do with a team not winning a Championship in over a century? Same thing with the Great Babe Ruth and the trade that had him leaving the Boston Red Sox, to the New York Yankees, then the Red Sox not winning a World Series in Eighty six years? We all can believe what we want to, as we are all unique to each other with our own minds, but to make an excuse over a curse for not winning a Championship, I think we need look deeply into what we see, instead of making an excuse for everything around us.

The Fans of the Chicago Cubs is what this win is all about, as it was the Fans that were caught between the team and the Ownership of the team and being being deprived of what other teams and their Fans have accomplished. It is the Fan that shows up. pays a fee, so they can watch their team win, it is the Fan that roots very loudly for their favorite players of that team, but when the Owner’s don’t pay for the right players (for which the fan pays for), now the Fan has no one to root for. Yes your going to have those die hard Fans that no matter what, will still pay and root for a team, even if they don’t truly know of who they are rooting for. Instead you have the Owner’s becoming more greedy and taking advantage of the die hard Fan, just to line their pockets with more money, so they can live their plush exotic lifestyles.  When you don’t spend the money wisely and get the right player’s for the team and for the Fans who have been loyal to you, you will be the next Chicago Cubs or the Boston Red Sox.

When you want to model yourself after a good Owner, you need to look no further than Bob Kraft of the New England Patriots. He was a Fan of the team before he was an Owner and when he became Owner, he then put the best Management around him to build a great team. then through the Management they went out and got the right players that not only fit the Patriot way, but that would gel together and give the Fans what they have paid for, as they spend a lot of money to enjoy a game on any given Sunday. Now with the Patriots and the last fifteen years, you can clearly see what building a great team will do, as they win more than they lose and through winning, makes it fun to not only play the game, but makes it fun to pay and watch the game as well. Now with the winning part, you will also gain some Hater’s that will try to bring you down with words, this is just that words……..That show nothing but hatred of their own team, cause their Owner’s don’t step up to the plate and reward their Fans with a winning team.

Yes I do congratulate the Chicago Cubs and their player’s for winning the World series, but I congratulate their Fans even more, as now they can see what winning is all about and how winning and sports can affect a whole region for the better. Players like Jon Lester and David ross who are the older guys on the team and have won it all before, both came from the Red Sox, as did Theo Epstein the General Manager also, these are the guys that brought their experience and winning nature with them, as they infected the Fans around them throughout Chicago. Theo was the one that was brought in by the owner’s to give the Fans what they have needed for a long time and finally reward the Fans with this great victory and not just a victory, but a World Series Championship.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, some may get a chance to bask in the glory of this journey, while others simply just walk their path in the clouds of their judgments. Sports and our everyday lives when they come together in harmony, like last night in Chicago, helps us all have a look at the glory part of this journey and can help us all become better and stronger moving forward. True everything has to line up completely, but when they do it is the most beautiful part of this journey through life and is what makes us all walk with confidence, to be better and stronger along our paths throughout this journey.

 

” The Chicago Cubs have finally found success in the sport of baseball, as the Fans have finally been rewarded for their time and money spent”

” This team of the 2016 World series Champs the Cubs, will be forever enshrined in the history of the city of Chicago”

” They say winning cures all, but you can’t win without the right players around you”

” It takes a knack to get the right players for your team, as Theo Epstein and Bill Belichek have perfected that knack”

 

Love, Respect,Rewarding,Hospitality

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

We climb mountains like this, not just because they are there, or maybe simply to pass the time? We climb mountains like this because we Love the getting outside part, we Love the adventure part of the journey and we also Love what our Reward is, when we reach the Summit of the mountain. While Hiking our journey to the Summit, we quickly learn to Respect the mountain and the trail for which we climb, we Respect everything around us like the plant life and the animals that may cross our path. Then we come to realize all the Hospitality of all the other Hiker’s that we meet along the trail, with just a quick simple hello and have a great day, by an Individual that before then, you never knew existed as we walk our path through this journey of life.

I just attended an event which very much had these same traits like, Love, Respect, Reward and the Hospitality. This event was for a sport that I very much enjoy not just for the competitiveness but for the game, this sport is Ten Pin Bowling. Bowling to some may be just a night out, or maybe a game for which to pass the time, Bowling to me is the Social interaction with others, making Friends with others that if it weren’t for the game, maybe you would of never met these People? It is also the fun you have competing with other’s, now some Leagues may be more competitive than others, or maybe you are good enough to compete in some Tournaments? The sport of Bowling teaches us all that, even through the competitiveness, we can still get along and have fun together, playing a game that we all, Love, while we Respect the game and each other, earn many Rewards and accolades, While we simply have fun and share much Hospitality with each other.

Now with all the Crap we see around us today and what the liberal Bias Media would want us to believe so they can sell their print and make money on our account, there are still good people around us and we can still enjoy each others company, without the word Hate even being a thought in anybody’s mind. Even through the competitive part of the game, when the game is over you can still shake hands regardless of the out come. The Hospitality part of Bowling is very seldom talked about, but yet is the part of the game that makes it the best sport out there. The Love and Respect that is shared by each bowler, is the biggest reward within the sport of Bowling. Unlike other sports, when an Athlete reaches a certain point, they lose the Love and respect, the Hospitality becomes non existent and the rewards then never come, which then makes us very Bitter and Hostile toward each other.

This Love, Respect, Reward and Hospitality will never die, only we as the people of this Society and the actions we take, makes it very difficult to truly see the good of these traits, makes it very difficult to receive any kind of a reward, as the Hospitality and the kindness will never be shared by we the people, as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

 

” Love is within us all and much easier to share with all those around us, the hate is learned from our surroundings and harder to spread among us”

” Respect is a trait that when we acknowledge and care for one another, then the feeling within us fills us with great warmth”

” Rewards comes from all our hard work, without the work there are no Rewards”

Hospitality quite simply comes from us being nice to each other, as we share the Love within us with each other”

Karma will always avenge those with false acquisitions

It is sad that in today’s Society some will accuse others of things they have never done…… Why? Your guess is as good as mine, maybe it’s the fact that they lack their own self confidence and this is a way for them to try to move forward, while thinking they are better than you?  Could also mean that they have some hidden issues that they are afraid to address? I get the fact we all have our own issues that we deal with on a daily basis, but when we deal with issues that are brought on by others, that make false accusations, shows just how people in this Society need to grow up, accept the responsibility of their actions, learn how to be confident in their abilities and instead of burying their issues deep within their sole, fix what needs to be fixed, so we all can move forward in peace and happiness, along our paths of this journey through life.

Self Confidence is something we all learn as we grow along our paths of this journey, self confidence doesn’t just happen as it is achieved by the way we learn to be better at all we do along our paths. When we lack this Self Confidence shows that we have become lazy at earning and achieving it, we forget how to practice whatever we need to practice, so we can achieve the confidence to move forward, within this Society we have become so lazy, we forget what it is to work hard for what we want, to work hard to gain our self confidence and when we get that lazy we then get lost within the clouds of our own self doubt. When self doubt enter onto our paths, we then will do anything, in order to move forward, even if that means knocking others down, so we then what we think is moving ahead of them? This is only one thing and that is, the fact that we lack the confidence in ourselves to move forward correctly, so we then can achieve success correctly, while we all become happy everyday of our journey.

Self Confidence isn’t just in the ability of a person that plays a sport, it is within each of us along our paths of our journey, we strive for the confidence to be great at whatever we are doing, when we lack the confidence and we become lazy to work hard at achieving it, we then will do anything to try to achieve it, yes that means we will try to bring down others around us,  to make it seem like we are better, even though they do the job better than I? Simply look at some one like Tom Brady of the New England Patriots, he works very hard, not just at practice, but within the game of football he plays, with that hard work and practice, he has enough self confidence in his abilities, that he is by far the best Quarterback in football, those within the game that chats ill of him are simply jealous and are lazy to work as hard as Tom, not too mention the reason why some hate on him so much. Life along our paths of this journey will go so much smoother if we all work hard and practice everything we do, fix whatever issues we have, so we can achieve our self confidence and be better and stronger moving forward.

 

” Self Confidence isn’t something that just comes to us, we have to work hard in achieving whatever we do to gain the Confidence”

” To bring another down is not the way for us to achieve success, or even move forward stronger and better”

” When we lack self confidence only means we have issues that we need to fix, so we can achieve the confidence to be better and stronger moving forward”

 

To Truly be who you are……

robin

Robin Williams was truly a special Person, he made us all laugh and smile through the years. From his stand up comedy, to his movie Acting whether serious or funny roles, We were all blessed to experience a great man, who we all admired and liked.

While Robin Williams was making us all smile through the years, he was hurting greatly deep inside himself, the Depression he was suffering from, was basically eating him from the inside out. Depression is a Mental Illness, that we need to take care of, as there are more than we care to acknowledge, that suffer this Dreadful Disease.

This Depression can attack anyone and it does not discriminate, it doesn’t care if you are filthy rich, or if you live on the streets and Homeless. A lot of our Homeless People are Homeless because of either, Society has forced them to the streets, or they suffer a Mental Illness that keeps them from walking their paths of this journey through life properly. Our Government just to make their budgets, will cut certain things to save a buck, one of those things is, Mental Illness, leaving many People to fend for themselves, with no where to turn when they need a Helping hand, so they then take to the streets and walk a very troubling journey throughout their lives.

Pauley  Perrette……AKA Abby sciuto the big star of the #1 show NCIS, is a big Advocate for the Homeless and also reaching out to help them by being their voice. Back a few months ago, she was viciously attacked by a Homeless man at knife point, he said he would kill here, so Miss Perrette went along with him and lied there on the ground in complete Fear of her life. This Man was later found and is now in jail, but Pauley was hurting deeply inside from this attack and only now she is speaking out from it. She is in a much better space now, with the help she reached out for. Unfortunately in this Society not all of us have someone to reach out to at our time of need,  so they then walk their journey’s while they hurt deeply inside, “this Depression does not discriminate”, but we throughout this Society do and is why there are many who hurt deeply inside. Pauly is truly a special Person like Robin Williams, whether in the Television show acting, or in life walking her journey. I just read an article of her finally speaking out after her attack and talking of her attacker. Pauley said that she cried real tears and totally forgives her attacker, now if this isn’t true Empathy, than someone clue me in as to what is.

Now if we all were in touch of our true Empathy like Pauley is, then just maybe this Society would be a much better Society for us all to walk our paths of our journey through life. Sometimes in life we come across great People and two of those great People are, Robin Williams and Pauley Perrette.

 

 

” True Empathy is within us all we just have to feel it, then acknowledge it, so we can then share it with all those around”

” Homelessness is a much bigger problem than we truly acknowledge it is, we all have to work together in first acknowledging it, then taking action to fix the problem forever”

 

The Globes…The Grammy’s…TheOscar’s…oh my!!!

 

Looks like this Duck is staring and Quacking up at all of us throughout Mankind, simply because we pay more attention to Drama and Fantasy, than we do towards actually walking our paths through this journey in reality and just being who we truly are.

There are a lot of great movies out there as well as TV shows, you also need people to act a part in order to make them great and just like in life, you do need to reward a job well done, when the person went above and beyond expectations, so others can relax and sit back to enjoy the show, but when the Media pays more attention to the red carpet and the entrances these Actors make, or what they are wearing, just to create much unneeded Drama. The Media does this so the rest of us will live within Fantasy, thinking ” why can’t that be me” and as we do this, then the Media can simply control us, cause we don’t know truly of who we are.

Most of these gowns and tuxedos really belong to the person who created them, as the Actor’s and Actresses are paid to model them along the red carpet through fantasy world. Then you have the Media criticizing all the apparel, just to simply create more unwanted Drama of the event. Then you have certain ones within Hollywood, that will pull out all the stops, to make the grandest entrance that they possibly can, all this just to be within Fantasy World for one night, instead of truly recognizing someone for a job well done.

There are a lot more everyday Folk that work much harder than those within Hollywood, but yet these Folk never receive any award, let alone become noticed in the way of an Actor/Actress. These Folk never ask for anything, but yet still get caught up in the Drama of the red carpet, so they can escape their realities for one night. It is totally okay to escape reality from time to time, so we can destress and unwind, it is when we can’t figure out the difference between the two, that we may portray to others, a side that isn’t truly who we really are.

I get the fact that it is good to escape our realities for a short time, take time to unwind and clear our minds of the everyday mumbo jumbo……..so we don’t become sick from stress, or having stress control who we truly are. Although for me I would go deep in the Wilderness with my pack and my tent, making a camp fire while enjoying the sounds of Nature all around me, as I feel all the stress leave my body, leaving me totally relaxed with no desire to get up and walk around.

We all have our escapes and places for which we go to in order to unwind and relieve ourselves of the daily stress, some like the outdoors, while others take to a movie theater to get lost within the fantasy coming out of the big screen, there is no wrong way if the daily stress simply melts away, like Winter’s ice on a hot day. We all walk our own paths along this journey through life, these paths are our reality, the fantasy comes from inside our heads and what we make of any situation.

 

” Life is like a jar of Maraschino cherries, when the jar becomes broken, OH!!! What a mess it becomes”

” Life is like the great outdoors when we stay focused and relaxed, we hear all the birds around us singing their happy tunes”

” Life is like the light on our front porch, we leave it on to light our way back home and we can shut or turn it on when needed to”

” Life is reality, as Fantasy is made up to whatever we want to make it”

 

 

Good decision/bad decision…Hmm!!!

story idea

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

The decision for Bill Belichek to kick away the ball at the start of overtime in last nights game, totally lies on him to do so and with his track record over the last fifteen years as the Coach of the New England Patriots, who are we to second guess his decision?

These pictures here are of two totally different paths, just like in life you also have different paths in sports to get to where you want to go. with the way the Offense played last night, compared to the way the defense played, clearly was part of the way Bill made his decision and all these theories we are hearing today, totally lie with the sports media, in trying to stir up as much drams as they can, so they can have a job to stir the drama with. Bill has brought four Championships here to new England over his tenure here, why should we stop trusting him now? Even Tom Brady came out and said the defense played better and he is the common denominator in all the different teams that Bill has coached here.

Talk about the media creating drama in sports, there was a report of Peyton Manning using HGH in the year 2011 after his neck surgery, which this report was later recanted when the reporter came out and said he was wrong, but now the seed of drama is planted and a very hard seed to dig up like the weeds in your green grass. Tom Brady came out in total defense of Peyton, as he is going through the same seed of drama with the deflate gate crap and can totally feel what Peyton is going through. This is, what is wrong with our Society of today, here you have two of the best Quarterbacks in the history of the NFL and there are some out there through jealousy, that will try to take them down, instead of sitting back and enjoying the show that they are putting on, year after year.

True we here in New England may not of liked the call to kick the ball away and pass up the chance to end the game with the offense scoring a touchdown like the Jets did, but when you sit back and review the game inside the game, you can see clearly why Bill made this decision, as the defense out played the offense in last nights game, it is just that it didn’t work out for the Patriots like in years past and with all the injuries to key players, shows that even the mighty Patriots fall Victim to the bug of an injury ridden season, like all other teams throughout the NFL.

With Bill Belichek and Tom Brady, the Patriots will always be in the talk of which teams will go to the Superbowl, but when key players around Tom fall to the injury bug, makes it that much harder to get there and that much harder a pill to swallow, for all the fans around New England to accept. The legacy of Bill and Tom here in New England is winning, but without all the key supporting players around them makes it that much harder to overcome adversity and keep the legacy of winning alive, I can say I was disappointed at the call also, but when I looked at the game inside the game, I clearly saw the reason why he made that call and totally respected Bill for making the call. #inbillwetrust Let us all here in New England always trust in Bill as his track record speaks for itself.

 

” just as in life, sports has different paths to follow to get to your true destination, hard work and determination shows you the true path to follow”

” Decisions are made everyday in life as well as sports, just that all the decisions made don’t always work in your favor”

” The New England Patriots with Bill and Tom will always be considered a favorite in the NFL, its the right supporting cast around them that keep them one of the favorites”

 

OH!!!! What a tangled web we weave

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

” OH!!! What a tangled web we weave, throughout this journey of life we all embark on”

 

Life sometimes isn’t all green pastures and smooth meadows, life will throw us curve balls, with a lot of rough terrain, that leads us to a lot of gasping for air with no place to catch out breathes. We all want to walk a path layered with Rose pedals and Gold, be pampered at every step we take, while others serve to our every needs. This kind of stuff only happens in Fairy tales and Fantasy, even when we work hard to get what we want, we still have to keep working hard to maintain everything we have. There is nothing in life that comes easy as much as we may think, sometimes there may be a path that has been cleared for us to walk, we then take everything for granted and  expect it to be like this all the time? We may get lucky at times and wander into a green pasture with a smoother meadow, that’s when we get complacent and fall into a comfortable rut, then have no idea of how to get out of it.

When we do find that green pasture and smooth meadow, it never lasts as when we come to the end of the path, we then have to blaze another path for which to walk, so we then can find another green pasture and smooth meadow once again. The journey of life is like that and it keeps evolving around us, which we need to evolve with it or simply get left behind, with no sense of direction of which way to go. When we get left behind and lost in our own little world, than all the paths we see look like rough terrain to walk, so we then stop walking and explore no more of what is around us.

Life is not for the tired or weary, it takes a lot of work to clear a path of your liking, then maintain that path daily like the green pasture and smooth meadow in our thoughts and dreams. While we are young and learning of this journey through life, is where it all starts for each of us to find our green pasture and smooth meadow. When we are taught more wrongs than rights and are taught of the ugly word Hate, over the beautiful word of love, now you will never see any green pastures and never mind the smooth meadows. Okay…………. Maybe we can get to the green pastures and smooth meadows eventually, but not without willing to work very hard at digging ourselves out from the complacency and the rut we put ourselves into.

When we carve out our paths along this journey of life correctly, is when the really hard work ends and the everyday work of, maintaining what we have begins. Life isn’t always going to be lined with Gold, with Rose pedals to comfort our feet as we walk our paths, sometimes the paths of life will look like this picture, with rough terrain everywhere we walk. When we walk our paths through this journey of life correctly, then we all can walk in peace, as we smile with true happiness always.

 

 

” The green pastures aren’t just for the Cows to graze, it is for us to rest from the rough terrain of the paths through the journey of life”

” When we walk our paths while thinking to much of the Fairy Tales, we then take for granted all that is around us”

” To carve out any path takes a lot of hard work, to maintain the path takes a bit less work, so we can see clearly of where we are going and we can be at peace and happiness always”

 

” The keeping up with the Jones”…

Waterfall

 

Who are the Jones? And why do we need to keep up with them?

Who knows when or even why this saying has been around so long? All this saying does is turn each of us against each other and stops us from truly being who we really are. Just like the saying of ” having the American dream”, we all think we know what this is for example, big house, white picket fence, two cars with garages, wife/husband, children, wealth and our own piece of the pie. Unfortunately throughout this Society of today, this American dream has caused us to step on each others shoe shine, to the point no matter what we do, nothing shines around us anymore. We all have our issues and our struggles throughout this journey of life, we all want the American dream and keep up with the Jones part of the pie, but unfortunately we have all gone the wrong way and find ourselves exerting all our energy at swimming up the stream of the waterfall, instead of making it easy and simply flowing as the current down this stream within this picture.

It is okay for some good fun and competition between us, but when this good fun and competition turns to ugliness, like we see around us today, you think we need to truly change and look deeply into everything that is around us? Competition between two Sports Teams is part of the game and the magic word is “game”. We as Individuals who watch these teams, have taken this competition to an all new level, a level that has turned us all against each other, cause we don’t see it as a game anymore, we see the friendly competition between two Teams and have turned this competition into, an ugly competition that has forced us to walk our paths throughout this journey of life, without truly being who we really are.

We all have a purpose in life, we all set our goals so we can find what our purpose truly is. I understand we all have our issues and struggles along our paths, but when we don’t address and fix these issues, the struggles will never end and we will never find out what our true purpose really is. Life is a journey that we all walk along a path, the journey may be the same, as the path and the purpose are all different to each of us, not everybody has to keep up with the Jones to achieve true happiness, as well as not everybody will achieve the American dream for true happiness also, true happiness comes from each of us, addressing the issues and fixing them, so we all can find our purpose and walk our paths in peace, with true happiness along this journey of life.

 

” The journey through life may be the same, but the path and the purpose is much different to each one of us”

” The struggles and issues of life may have us swimming up stream into the waterfall, but addressing the issues and fixing the struggles will have us swim down stream, making our paths more peaceful with happiness”

” good competition between us is okay, but when it turns ugly is when we have to change the game, to make the competition fun again”
