Intro to this week >>
Each Friday for more than a year I have gotten my blog out to you. I hope my words and photos have inspired you and brought your life up to a higher level.

I am, once again, awaiting mail coming in, this time to the house of my juggling friend, Jim and his lovely wife Julie Mackenzie in Spring, Texas.

Not special things happened this week, therefore no new photos. I am going to include a few of my favorites, hope you like.
Words to inspire you!
From my book series, “Beyond Your Potential”

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, too.

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.

Sorry to say, it seems to me that many of the people in America have settled with being “average” and living ordinary lives. We all should aim higher (and then higher and higher) to be (as they say in The Marines) all that we can be.

This is about going beyond being normal to becoming more and more. Being average never caught anyone’s attention or found them the excellence that they may crave. No one ever says, “I want to grow up to be average” when they are a youth, yet so many people end up there.

At any age, you can make the change and aim your life anew.

As you live your life, develop a purpose for living and understand why you want to be alive. Once you discover and understand your purpose, muster up an intense passion toward the end result.

This will give you stability in your life and help to make things more solid for you. People without a passion in their life lack energy and will often go nowhere—quickly.

Having passion will give you energy. In your life, you must love the journey as much as you love the destination you are aiming toward. Find your purposebring on your passionand you will live the life that you want.
2/29—I seem to go from city to city, yikes. As you know, I do not like cities. In Austin for five days was enough for me (thanks for letting me stay over, Darren and James.)

To the east, I headed, to Bastrop State Park. But, not so nice, placed between two highways, much traffic noise. Yet, it is a Saturday and the place is pretty full up. Just one night here and off I will go.

3/1/20—Slept well last night, after all, could not hear the traffic, it was nice. The campground was full, I slept in the parking lot. In the morning I used their shower and got clean, feel better.

Journeyed on to Houston, I need to have some work done on my bike. I had the bike on the bike rack wrong and the back wheel got tweaked. So, I think I will need a new wheel. I will find out and let you know tomorrow.

For tonight, I found a place to park in a residential area away from traffic. Seems that it will be dark and quiet; nice. (did I use that semi-colon correctly?) Typing to you on battery power offline, do you like?

Today I went to some food banks in the area. At this point, I have enough food to last me for at least a month. In a library in downtown Houston. I will just leave my van parked in the lot and sleep here, a library is quiet, after all.

3/2-4—I’ve been in and around Houston, as I await some more mail, this time coming into my friend’s house, Jim and Julie Mackenzie. So, a few days with nothing going on. There is rain, too, so no juggling in the park for me.

3/5—At a library most of the day. I watch videos for education and write words, like right now. A special dinner tonight >> I had fajita chicken meat, already cooked and cut, I mixed in some good slices, along with fresh-cut onion and cheese, tasted great.

I do like this free lifestyle I am leading. I still do not see it ending anytime soon. Although, I am lonely and it is hard to find someone when you are on the move. My passenger seat remains empty, might you have an interest in traveling with me?

3/6—At a different library where I spent most of the day, big and clean, very nice. I miss the wilderness and will return soon.

My Challenge for You this Week >>
As I was walking through the library I saw some scraps of paper, trash they were. I knew I would be passing a trash can, so I picked them up and disposed of them. My challenge for you this week, clean up wherever you can and help make this planet a better place for all of us.
Next Blog >>
Not sure what direction I want to go in. As you might know, I have been through every state. I’m thinking of going along the gulf shore and heading toward the east to New Orleans. Do you have any suggestions for me? =====================
