Thank you, Jai Smith, for your help in getting me to contact my website host to get help with getting my website running correctly. So, now I can post once again to

The web host I use is excellent. They only charge twenty bucks a year and provide so much. If you want to get a host for a website space, namecheap is excellent.

This week I spent much time around Dahlonega in Georgia. This town is first-class, hills all around, very green and growing, quite nice.

As you remember, I met Beth at the library in McCormick, South Carolina. She just retired after being a librarian for a number of years. I’ve returned to see Beth.

A delightful woman, we are about the same age. I am sleeping in the van as we do stuff during the day. And, I am helping with repairs and improvements to her home, something I love to do and she seems to like what I am doing, much. What a great new friend Beth is.

As I hope I am inspiring you through these blogs, and, remember, your story can inspire others, too! Never feel bad about talking about yourself, yes, you are that important. If we can all help others, this would be a better world.


Inspirational quotes and motivational sayings have an amazing ability to change the way we feel about life and can change our thinking. This is why I find them so interesting, challenging, and important on our path to joy and happiness and finding ways to inspire ourselves.

Inspirational quotes provide us with a quick and timely burst of wisdom to get our focus back, offering the inspiration needed for the day or occasion.

I hope to inspire you with my words.
Words have power.
At any age, you ca
n (and should) make changes to make your life better.

You see, the way you think and feel about yourself, including your beliefs and expectations about what is possible for you, determine everything that happens in your life. It all derives from your quality of thinking.

When you improve the quality of your thinking, you change the quality of your life—sometimes instantly!

Just as positive words can make someone smile, and/or, a well-timed amusing quote can make someone laugh, your own thoughts react to the world in real-time. You have this control! In fact, you have complete control over only one thing in the universe — your thinking — and that’s where motivational quotes come in!

To keep your motivation, you have to use each day as an opportunity for improvement, to be better, to get a little bit closer to your goals. It might sound like a lot of work—and with your busy schedule—next to impossible. But you can do it!

The best part is, the more you accomplish, the more you’ll want to do – the higher you’ll want to reach! So, as long as you have the hunger for success, you will always have the power within you to achieve it.

Self-talk is so important—THINK RIGHT!
Motivational words, yes, they’re just words.
But they’re positive words; they will keep you on track.

I hope the words I pick do help you.

From my book series, Beyond Your Potential

A lot of highly successful people have a continual thirst for knowledge and are always asking questions such as those above. These successful people first think and ask the questions that will provide answers to advance. These people know that it is the people who ask the better questions who get a better life.

Remember, it is often the people who ask the most and the best questions that succeed.

When you start to answer these questions you will produce great energy within your life. Zealous people usually have a lot of energy to pursue what they do.

Passionate people are doing what they love and loving what they do.

We’ve all known people who do not resonate with this passion. A lackluster life at best is how they live. They do just enough to get by and meander through the time they have on earth. This book will teach you how to find this love, apply it to your own life, and achieve the excellence that you desire.

Often, people who find the desire are highly successful and they love their journey toward the end result. Along the way, even though they have not yet arrived at their goal, they constantly fuel themselves with this driving passion.

More importantly, they often bring others up with them.

We have to work together in the world and find success for all of us. Yes, we can all be at the topit will work. Help others to move up and you shift forward and up.

Generating this passion from the bottom of your mind and the bottom of your heart will keep you driving forward. When you develop this love, it will help to build your life, I guarantee it. You can go from average to more than you would ever think.

At any age, you can make the change and aim your life anew.
Now, it’s time to get out there and do
something incredible that you can rejoice in!


5/22—What a fabulous day. But, still deciding what to do, where to go. I am thinking north.

I found a library in Dahlonega that is very large. Strange though, I could not find the name of the library on the front on the building. Anyway, I am in front looking at a huge parking lot, I see some big trees on the other side, I will be sleeping there.

I am able to get on their wifi, and there is an electrical outlet to plug in. There is a very big lawn to work on juggling. The library is closed for the weekend – no people around anywhere. So, all mine for two days! With no one around, I am in paradise (wish you were here, though.)

At the last food bank, I got a whole rotisserie chicken, fully cooked and very tasty. I had chicken on my salad. So, I am eating well. As you know, I keep about a full week of food with me at all times, so I will be a-OK. And, the glass of wine is nice, too.


5/24—Hanging around in Dahlonega for a couple of days. This town is a fabulous place. Quite mountainous around here, I like that. It is easy to find places to park and spend the night in the van.

Today I spent time at Yahoola Creek Park. I even found some videos on the park, a fabulous place. Take a look >>

It thought it time to get clean, so I brought a washcloth with soap on it to the stream and cleaned it thoroughly. Felt so good afterward; I said YAHOO! (Yahoola Creek Park, you know.)

5/25—Went to lunch today with Gary DuTeau, you remember, who I camped with in the past. This town of Dahlonega, where Gary lives, is a delight. I am so glad I came here and spent time with Gary.

This man is so full of knowledge and stories, of the area, of politics, and so many subjects. We spent a couple hours just talking (and eating great food, thanks for lunch, Gary.) I suggested he write a book to educate, he seemed to like the idea.

5/26-27—Spent time with Beth on her yard, trimming bushes and trees and fixing things up better.

Right across from Beth live some horses.
These are huge animals.
They did like the apples I feed them.

But, I’m lonely out here, I would love to hear from you.
Either through Facebook or email,


We all get set in certain ways, which can always be arranged better. I’ve known people who move into a house, set their furniture, and then never change it.

This week, rearrange your furniture in your home in a different/better way. There are always ways to improve your house. Once you do rearrange, it will be like you are in a new home.

Do this especially with your bedroom, you spend sooooo much time in there. Make it better/different, you will sleep better.

Let me know how this helps or doesn’t.

I was going to head toward the north, but I am missing the beaches in Florida and think I will return. Where do you think I should go?
