A Quote for the ages……….

” You beat life by how you live, why you live, and in the manner in which you live”

Revised quote of the late Stuart Scott

By: Bowlingchef

 

This quote by the late Stuart Scott is such a great quote simply because, with just a quaint little change, you can have this quote mean something totally different than what it originally meant. We all walk a path through this journey of life, what most really lose sight of is, life is really what you make it if you make it hard then life will come down hard on you with each step, just as when you make life as simple as you like, then life will reward you with greatness and a path well walked.

Throughout this society of today, we get bombarded with messages, TV ads, voice mails, emails, junk mail, etc… All this can persuade you as well take away from you actually walking your path for you, with all the crap we may see throughout this society, all this may trick us as well into thinking that, the road to happiness might be paved with possessions or money,  all this may play with our esteem as well, like have us think we may need all the power or sex just so we can function in society? It may seem hard to resist these things as our esteem has been lowered and all for the wrong reasons, But God says our thinking should be shaped by his truth and not of all the crap that comes to us throughout this society. What the world calls valuable, God calls worthless, but in this society, we do not see it that way, only because we all have wandered too far away from the house of God.

Within this society of Political Correctness today, we can not even live as normal as we can any more, now we have to worry about offending someone even if what we are doing is correct. We can’t pray in public as our beliefs will let us, but those around us will not because they are offended of what you are doing if we speak the truth and those around us can’t handle the truth, now we are the ones getting scorn simply because they are too weak-minded, God forbid if we should fly the American flag on our property, like someone walking by will complain as this offends them, even though you had a family member be taken from you because they had fought for this great country. There are some that will try hard to put their stamp on this society within this journey, while they try to erase all the other stamps, simply because they are the only thing that matters? This is the true reality of this society and this is where we all have gone wrong, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

When you get caught up in all the drama in this society, then your life will be full of drama as now you know nothing but drama and anything else just isn’t normal. when you let the offending of another bother you, now you will only be walking on eggshells along your path, as now your journey becomes one that is not true of who you are. Sometimes we need to accept the fact that we just may not leave our stamp on this life, not everybody gets that opportunity only a chosen few get that chance and there is nothing wrong with that fact. We need to understand that for this journey to be a success for us, we need to walk our paths through this journey, just simply being of who we truly are and not anything more, if we let ourselves be someone for who we are not, now we are not walking this journey for ourselves anymore and we ourselves do not even know who we are walking it for? This journey through life really is not that hard, it is each of us that make it harder than it really needs to be.

 

” Life is like a game and to be a success at the game, just be who you are without being someone you are not”

” With all the different quotes that have been created over time, this one is the best as you can change a couple words and have it mean a whole new meaning”

” Political Correctness has made us all weak, with the weak-minded becoming even weaker and more unstable”

” The drama should be kept to the theatre, as it has no place within a society or even within this journey through life”

Take the time to stop and listen

time………… No one takes the time for anything anymore, everything is rush and I want it now. Family dinners? Nope a thing of the past now, as people don’t take the time to sit and eat anymore, well okay they are sitting at the drive-thru in their cars at the local burger joint. Family dinners had a whole different meaning back in the day, it was time for the family to bond and come together, to help build that strong foundation moving forward, it’s the family bond that gives you the strength and confidence to enter into a society of many and be successful. You always had family to lean on when things got a bit rough, they guided you, they gave good advice and always gave their unconditional love without blinking an eye. The family never judged and always supported no matter the circumstance, without family our paths through this journey of life, would be a lot rougher to walk, with a lot more scrapes and bruises, giving us more pain and hurt.

The only time you see a family sitting together for their dinner is on the television show Blue Bloods, I love that show and I love the family dinners.  In this society of broken homes and broken families, it is sad that the family dinners are a thing of the past, simply because it is these dinners, that bring us together instead of dividing us. As much as these so-called Politicians point the fingers at each other and say that the other is dividing us, it is the fast-paced society, the no more family dinners, and the broken homes that are dividing us greatly today. The problems of this society belong totally on each one of us, we are the problem and we are the solution to fixing the divide in this society and all we need to do is, stop, take the time and listen to everything that is around us.

Our forefathers are turning in their graves at the way we are screwing up this society, they worked hard setting things up and writing of the Declaration of Independence, so we of today could have it easier, instead we would rather get rid of the things in the past, simply because we would rather have our five minutes of fame, instead of doing it correctly.  I would hate to grow up in the household of some of these Politicians, as the pressure would be unbearable, there would be no proper discussions, simply because they would always end in an argument, just watch the Democratic debates and they will show you nothing but arguments and the attacking of one another. Don’t know about you but our current President is more Presidential than any one of these knuckleheads.

Time is precious but yet no one takes the time anymore, we are all so much in a hurry, that we don’t even know why we are hurrying? We get into our vehicles and want to do a hundred instead of doing the speed limit, while we are speeding down the roads, we then proceed to chat or text on our devices, then wonder why we are off the road in an accident? Everything needs to be done now and nobody has the patience to take their time and do it correctly. While we are always in a rush, we all have forgotten to hold ourselves accountable for our actions, we take no responsibility for anything anymore and always point the finger of blame, even when we are the ones to blame. All these issues simply stem from the no more family dinners anymore, so not only to bond with those closest to us but build that strong foundation as we enter into a society of many, you think those in society that we do not truly know, really care for what we do? They could care less and would think nothing but to step all over you when you fall, as all this goes back to the no family dinners, for any of us to truly chat and have a good conversation, to not just chat, but too truly communicate properly with all those around you. We all walk a path through this journey of life and unless we do it correctly, the journey will be rough on us all, with no peace and happiness so we can simply stop, take the time and truly listen to all that is around us.

 

” When you take the time to listen and learn all that is around, you will notice things you normally would not notice”

” Family dinners are the key to all our happiness as we walk through this journey of life”

” Family is the strong bond that builds a strong foundation, so we can achieve all we can and be truly successful”

” Arguments don’t solve a thing, as a good discussion will help us all communicate better with each other”

 

 

Living the Dream………….

” Living the Dream”? What exactly does this mean? I have been hearing this a lot lately, now I know this saying has been around probably for as long as Mankind? But seriously what exactly does it mean, especially when we all have different dreams from each other.

For me living the dream would be on my own little Island with all I need and away from all the chaos, ugliness and hatred, that is within this society of today. Maybe for someone else it might be, being free to do whatever they want to do and whenever they want to do it, just maybe someones dream would be like the American Dream? Which consists of, a house, a white picket fence, a family and a pet, now what most take for granted is, they both still are a dream and we all dream differently, with no two dreams being alike.

Do dreams really come true? Well……………… The jury is still out deliberating on this one, only because everything that comes to us, is there for a reason, everything that happens to us happens for a reason, it is just that we have to find that reason, so we than can move forward on our paths of this journey, better and stronger than ever before. It’s the reason part that we take for granted and most of us, never truly understand this part, so we usually skip this this and move on to the next part of the journey, which then has us all never finding any kind of reason for anything at all. As we walk through this journey. People and things come across our paths, they all have a reason for crossing our paths and will just never…. Just happen, for instance………… Someone wins big on a lottery scratch ticket, this doesn’t happen just because you picked the right ticket, it happened for a reason and it’s up to you to find that reason, so you than can truly understand the phrase of ” Living the Dream”.

True that living the dream is a form of reality for us all with different outcomes for each of us, so now the next time someone says to you ” hey how are you doing”, you can respond in a different way with the same words of living the dream, as now you actually mean what you say, with a true reasoning for whatever dream you are living.

Most dreams usually happen at night while we are sleeping and when we wake, we usually do not remember what we dreamt of while we slept, so as we say to each other the words of, ” living the dream”, how can we actually live a dream if we are awake within reality? With a dream we either do not remember, or it is something fictitious that never really happens. I think maybe we all get so caught up within our own little worlds, with these worlds becoming our own little safe havens, that we then look at them kind of like being on our own little islands, as we try to escape all the ugliness and hatred that is around us today? We can day dream of something, but mostly of what a day dream is, we are escaping the ugliness of what is around us at the present time, either way we look at what a dream is, it is still something fictitious, so we than can escape whether for a short time, the reality of our paths we walk, through this journey of life.

” Living the dream is something we say to each other as it is only a fictitious reality and not true reality”

” Some may be fortunate enough to actually remember their nightly dreams, as most do not, a dream is still just a dream and not true reality”

” A day dream is our way of escaping our realities even just for a short time”

” Everything that comes to us and happens to us there is a reason for it, it then lies on us to find that reason so we can understand better our realities as we walk our paths through this journey of life”

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”

Be prepared and ready for all that may cross your path

a pile of snow with a mountain in the background: APTOPIX Everest Death

The World’s highest peak that is mount Everest is a mere 29,029 feet, but what is even more important is the death zone of that mountain, the zone where you need to be prepared and totally know of what you are doing is 26,000 feet, at the death zone elevation is where anything can happen and you need to be hyper-vigilant of your surroundings at all times, not too mention what is happening to yourself in the way of elevation changes as well. There is no messing around hiking this mountain and at no time, should this mountain be used as a conversation piece to brag to others that, ” I have done something you haven’t”. even those in the most tip top shape have struggled hiking this mountain, simply because the elevation is the biggest factor in being totally prepared to hike this mountain.

Hiking this mountain and being above the 26,000 elevation mark is, kind of like a diver in the ocean going below a certain depth, the diver gets what is known as the Bends, when he surfaces he then has to get within a decompression chamber to decompress from the ” decompression sickness”, from ascending to quickly, even with the oxygen or the nitrogen in their tanks they still get this sickness, which is something that nobody climbing mount Everest even thinks about when they climb the worlds highest peak.

Right now the deaths on mount Everest is at an all time high and the Government of Nepal is not even thinking of making any changes to the rules? Right now if you show up with the $11,000 they will issue a permit to you, without even checking your mountaineering skills, or even the health condition of your present self, it is like all things today and about the money, especially for the small country of Nepal looking to survive within today’s world.

I put the blame squarely on all the social media platforms out there and the fact that people hike within areas without being totally prepared, just to gain a bigger presence on these platforms with more followers. Let’s look at a page on Facebook for instance, this page is called I hiked the 4,000 footers club in New Hampshire, this page has people posting pictures and bragging of their hike, with a lot of these hikers, not wearing the proper foot gear, or even carrying the proper equipment to be ready for whatever they may encounter, let’s go one step further here and the fact that, there is not enough adequate parking for all, so they park on the side of an interstate highway, just so they can put pictures up on their Facebook page or whatever social media platform they are using. Hiking anywhere within the white mountains of New Hampshire you need to be prepared for anything, especially the sudden changes in the weather, it can and will snow on the top of mount Washington in the summer and when you can’t find the trail because of the snow, then you need maybe a compass and even be able to see where you are just by looking at the sky, or just maybe remember your surroundings for the return trip. I noticed on my hikes a lot of times, people are looking in front of them for a trail marker and not looking at what is around them? What happens if that marker is not there for whatever reason? What do you do then? When you are above the tree line you see a pile of rocks, what are they? And what are they called? They are Carns and they mark the trail for you to follow.

This picture of the people climbing mount Everest, what is the biggest problem of this picture? If you said the line of people and being way to close to each other, you are 100% correct, because if one of them misstep and fall, now you have a domino effect of all going down and with the cliffs on both sides……………. Well with common sense you can see what is going to happen there. Even with the oxygen they are breathing from the tanks on their backs, that is still not enough at the altitude they are in, then you add in the fact that, when these people get to the top they want to take a ” selfie” and most definitely, they want people to see who they are in the picture, so they then take off the mask of oxygen for the picture, but they don’t realize that, even the seconds that the mask is off, is seconds to long at that elevation. Your body at that elevation is already changing and parts of the body is shutting down, because we are not cut out for this type of rigorous endeavor, no matter how much in shape you think you are? Just like all the deaths happening on mount Everest, there are deaths happening in the white mountains of New Hampshire, simply because people are embarking on these hikes without being properly prepared, for what ever might cross their paths, whether it’s the proper foot gear, to enough water to stay hydrated, or even the proper snacks for protein, or even carrying the right gear in the pack, just in case your stuck in a weather condition that changes drastically, no matter what the hike, you need to be well prepared and ready for anything that you may encounter along your path, of any journey you embark on.

” Be prepared is the biggest of the Boy Scout’s motto and something we all need to adhere to within the journey of life”

” A traffic jam of people on the worlds tallest peak, is something that should never be and dangerous for all stuck within the traffic jam”

” Just because you have $11,000 should never be all it takes to hike the worlds tallest peak”

” Social media platforms are being used in a way they were never designed to be used, because we the people misuse everything we touch without thinking through the ramifications of our actions”

May the 4th be with you…….

May 4th will always remind us of the movie Star Wars, as it will have us thinking of the force and maybe one day we will understand of how it truly works. Maybe it is just a movie thing, or maybe it is actually real? If we want to truly believe? We may think of the force within the movie as something that is not real, but the real force is within us all, it is deep within our true feelings and emotions and when we unleash this force, there is nothing we can not do. First we need to have complete faith in ourselves and when we do, the force will fill us with the confidence to do whatever we want to do. May the 4th may be just a date, but it is a date that can remind us all, of not just a movie, but remind us deeply that when we have complete faith in ourselves, the force will give us the confidence to do whatever we want to do.

The one thing that will most definitely keep us from feeling the force within, is this thing called Denial. Through Denial we lose all sight of what true reality is, Denial will have us become someone for who we truly are not and when we are in Denial, then the clouds of our judgments will keep us from having any confidence of not just ourselves, but keep us from any confidence in anything we want to do. Denial will feed any addiction and when we are in denial, there is no kind of addiction that will take over our force and totally control every fiber of our body. Through any kind of addiction, no matter what the addiction is? We will only see the addiction and never see anything else that comes before us, whether it is good or bad, addiction is what feeds the denial and the denial will eat it up, to keep alive the addiction.

Through Denial we will never see true reality right in front of us, because that reality then becomes clouded within the clouds of our judgments, this is no more closer to us all than within the walls of Washington DC, these so called Leaders who we have voted in, are so far in Denial, that they can not see any reality, even if it jumped up in front of them and slapped them in the face. Especially those within the Democratic party, these Individuals are so far in denial, they all have become clueless on how to do their jobs. These Individuals think that by attacking one another, they come across as being stronger than all else and they think that, by attacking each other, they then become more powerful than all those around them. I got a news flash for all of you, all you people are is truly nothing but a clown and you all belong in the Ringling brothers Barnum and Bailey’s circus, as not only are we the people in this country laughing at you, but so is the whole world laughing at you as well.

To truly feel the force within us all, we first have to let go of the denial, clear the clouds within our judgments, be truly of who we are and not attack one another, so we than can move forward in clarity, move forward truly feeling the force that is within us, move forward with complete confidence and faith in ourselves, so we than can be truly of who we are, while we share our love of each other, without this hate anywhere to be found. The force is there within us, when we let ourselves truly feel it, is when we all can walk our paths of this journey, in the peace and harmony that we all so deserve, plus it will also bring us even closer to Jesus, who showed us how to be truly of who we are, while he walked his journey here with us. The force that is within us is so much stronger than the force in the movie Star Wars, but the problem then lies with each of us, as we simply do not let the force drive us to be better and stronger, instead we get so wrapped up in this Denial, that we then forget of truly who we are.

” May the 4th be with you, as the true force within us all, becomes stronger moving forward”

” Denial is only as strong as we let it, when we don’t trust the force that is within us”

” The Democrats are so far in denial, they truly can not see any reality that is right in front of them”

Abuse of Power is damaging and painful………….

Robert Mueller wearing a suit and tie: In a 2013 file image, former FBI director Robert Mueller attends the ceremonial swearing-in of FBI Director James Comey at the FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C.
” Knowledge is power and can make you better, but the wrong kind of power will hurt you and those around you” I bet we the the people are so happy that this so called investigation is over, but is it really over? This was the biggest waste of money in the political world to date, this proved nothing, especially the fact of what it was set out to do, which was the taking down of a seated President. President Trump gave up his Billionaire dollar lifestyle, to truly help us all the American people with the America first attitude. President Trump came into office with large pockets full of money, to which all the lobbyists hate, simply because he can not be bought, but yet some others get elected into office within the Senate and the Congress not as rich as Trump, but all of a sudden they are now extremely wealthy, as they have been bought by these lobbyists to vote a certain way. What the so called Media will not report on cause it is not in their agenda is, the simple fact that even through this witch hunt of an investigation, President Trump has accomplished a lot of good for this country and the people. Now very true that our President may say things he shouldn’t and maybe offend some, but this shows of how he does not believe in this political correct world that consumes us today, the one thing that this political correction does is, it makes us all weak as we fear most of not offending anyone, for the pure fact of any harm coming to us. Gone are the days of actually looking someone in the eyes and actually interacting firmly without fear of repercussions, especially when there is this thing called social media we all hide behind today. Knowledge is power yes, but when you use the power to take someone down, or bring harm to another, that is not the kind of power we need. Now if your working within a company and you want to move up within that company, then having knowledge of everything that company does can and will benefit you greatly, but now where there is no more true loyalty anymore, this kind of knowledge is far and few between. There are still some out there that have great knowledge of a subject and are willing to share their knowledge with you, but in this world of ” all about me”, those ones are hard to find today. The sad part of this society today is, we are all guilty of having our agendas very much like the the media types have their agendas as well. Today within the walls of Washington DC and over the last couple years with this so called investigation, the one thing that it did bring out is the fact that, all our elected officials are not only corrupt, but they are also driven to gain all the power over everything they can, just so they can basically try to have full control of everything around them. If you try to get elected and don’t know how to play the power game, then you will get eaten up within the walls of Washington DC, then you become none effective and a warm body sitting in a chair. We all walk a path through this journey of life, but when we move forward with no empathy or compassion for each other, then the journey becomes clouded and we all hurt real pain, with no true feelings to soothe the pain. President Trump has been elected to the highest office on the land fair and square, now we the people need to except that fact, except that he is our seated President, so we all can move forward better and stronger, while President Trump lives up to his promise of, ” making America great again”. It really does not matter what political party you belong to, as this journey through life is traveled by each of us as an individual, that looks to try to walk our paths in peace and harmony, but when we are attacking each other, then the peace and harmony are no where to be found, then we become blinded by the clouds of our judgments, of which then we all become none effective in the pursuit of, peace, happiness, empathy and compassion, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. ” Knowledge is power, but not when you abuse the power for self endeavors” ” The political witch hunt is over, but what kind of witch hunt will come next?” ” The Washington power game has become so corrupt, that there is no true power anymore”

The making of a Legend and a Dynasty

a man wearing a football uniform: Getty

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Having an Epiphany or an AH!!!! HA!!! moment…….






” That moment when you finally see what was already there in front of you, that is having an Epiphany”

There were many of these moments as Jesus walked his journey here with us, but as we do here in today’s Society, we don’t look deeply enough, nor do we look at what is right in front of us, instead we only see what we want to see, only because it is whats conveinant at the time, with no effort at all on our part. With Jesus walking his journey so long ago and we in this society, not making into the house of the Lord as we used to, makes for a society in denial of who they truly are. Jesus is always right there not just in front of us, but within us all, with his love for each one of us, but with we as a society not entering the house of the Lord as we should be, makes for a similar Epiphany for us all.

With all the ugliness and the hatred around us today, only proves further that we all need to have this epiphany, so we all can get back to who we truly are. When Jesus walked his journey here with us, he didn’t do it for the power or any amount of money, he did it for us while he showed how much he loved each one of us, he died on the cross for each of us, then rose from the dead to be seated at his Father’s side, showing us all that, when we to walk the path of righteousness, then when this journey ends, we also can live within Heaven. Jesus never failed us, only we failed ourselves, simply because we have wandered away from the house of the Lord and not truly seeing what is right there in front of us.

With we of this Society wandering away from the house of the Lord and forming our own opinions of the truth, will only lead us into a world of lies, hatred and ugliness, as you can see from today’s society, then through all the crap, we have spun everything in a political way, even a walk to the local general store, will get spun in a political way, this is who we have become, simply because we have wandered away from the house of the Lord. Those so called Leaders that get voted into office by us, can not even look each other in the eyes and do the job they were voted in to do, simply because they spin everything in a political way, instead of sitting down to simply talk eye to eye. When we share the love of Jesus within us, with each other as Jesus wants us to do, then all this political spinning will disappear, with each one of us having that Epiphany, that is really right there in front of us all.

You can either just watch the water flow over the rocks and down into the pool below, or you can truly see a stream flowing through the landscape, then falling over the rocks, forming a waterfall making a pool at the bottom. The Epiphany will have you see the waterfall as you look deeply into what you see, but when you are shallow, than you will see everything just as shallow as you are. Jesus doesn’t want us to see his power, he wants us to truly feel his love within us, so we can share that love with each other, as we walk this journey together, with no ugliness or hatred. Instead of just spinning everything in a political way, let us all have that Epiphany and truly walk into the house of the Lord, to see what was always right there in front of us, the love of Jesus Christ for each of us not just to see, but to feel deep within, everyday of this journey.

” Let the water fall on your head so the cold water can wake you in the true Epiphany way”

” The political way is not the right way, as the right way will give you that AH!!! HA!!! moment”

” When the leaders of today can not see eye to eye, then maybe it is time for the Epiphany to snap us all back to reality”

The Patriots got “Played” at Hard Rock Stadium




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

                                                                                         *** Bowlingchef ***

 


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

      

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

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

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

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

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