Beth and I have been discussing a few questions that can affect life.
How can they apply to your life?
Write answers to each how you can.
How can you put these into practice—NOW?

  1. Is there anything you’ve longed to do with your life, yet you haven’t?

  2. What’s the most important value you would teach to a young person?

  3. What advice would you give your younger self?

  4. Are you “truly” happy?

  5. What makes you get out of bed in the morning?

  6. Where do you feel most at peace and east outside your home?

  7. What’s one quality you wish you had that you don’t?

  8. What is something you try to actively avoid in life?

  9. What change did you make in life that you are most proud of?

  10. At the end of life, what’s one thing you’d regret not having accomplished or lived?


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 and ideas 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, determines 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!

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.

Having passion in life can add so much to your life. Have you ever developed a strong passion for something? While being passionate about something obviously makes you curious to know details about it, the same holds true that you can spark interest in something. Use your mind to find the right passions to pursue.

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!


8/1As I have written before, at times I like to attend a church and see what they have to offer. Journey Community Church in Evans, GA was calling, so away we went.
Being as many of the other churches I go to, this one had nothing new to offer. 

Perhaps you know from my past writings, after attending hundreds of church services in various faiths, I have never heard anything that sank in to change my mind to the idea that there is a god overseeing humans.

Beth attended church for much of her young life, she fell away after she carefully read the bible and truly thought about the idea of a god.

Great to see the joyfulness and passion in most people at Journey Church. Organized religion is a nice social connection for people; a good thing.

In talking with believers worldwide, I have not found anyone to answer these two questions, can you?

  1. Please tell me the five best realistic proofs for your God?

  2. Let me know five reasons I should believe in your God?

In your answers, you cannot refer to any religious books or texts.

8/2—Beth and I surveyed the yard to see where we want to start our vegetable garden (do you have one?) American’s love their lawns—I think it is a waste of land and time. If you have kids, yes, a yard is a great resource for kids to play on. Instead of a lawn, if everyone grew vegetables, there would be plenty of food available for everyone.

8/3—Visited the horses next door along with Jemma the dog. I don’t think she had ever come nose to nose with a horse, good to see.

8/4—Did things to improve the home we live in. When was the last time you worked on improving your home? It does not take much money to improve things, do it, it will make you happy.

Also today, I made a batch of my chocolate chip cookies. I put together a good recipe for the best cookies. The recipe below will make many cookies, you may want to cut the recipe in half. Let me know how yours turn out.

Chocolate chip cookies

4 sticks butter

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 1/2 cups brown sugar

4 tablespoons Kahlua

2 tablespoons vanilla

4 eggs

5 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

4 cups of chocolate chips


325 for 15 minutes

8/5—Hope this day went great for you.

8/6—This evening Beth got together with four other ladies for a “Ladies Night Out.” I wanted to join them so I put on one of Beth’s dresses and went with her to meet with them. Comedy for everyone.

I would love to hear from you!
Either through Facebook or email –

Seems that things might soon be closing down again. Before they do, go to a nursing home, with flowers, and visit someone. This might be the best thing that happened in their life in months.
I need to get out to the wilderness, somewhere.
You will learn how I found this.
How can you find this freshness of nature and the wilderness for yourself?
