On Big Dreams.

dream big

All things being equal doesn’t it makes sense to dream big?

It takes the same effort to dream crap than to dream championship.

Like my good friend tells me: “when it comes to the good in life

I want more., I always want more”

I guess I agree. I want more life, I want more health, I want more wealth.

I want to lose more weight, I want to feel much better.

I am ready to put my best effort to accomplish it as I know nothing

worthwhile is free.

How big are your dreams? How great your hopes.

It is up to us gang.

Let’s Go Do It.

A Little Help Please.

DSC_0372This is our ferret ‘Peter”

Here you can see him exploring the

ocean and the beach in Rocky Point, Mexico.

He is the oldest of our ferrets, and he has

fallen ill. This has affected our whole family,

and as we have done before with one other

of our ferrets, we are taking as much care

of him as we can.

I would like to ask of you to please send

good thoughts, prayers and good energy

his way. Our whole family would be most

grateful.  Thanks.

A Good Bye.

 

The passing of a Friend or Friends.

Not too long I found myself at the lake of Davis Dam and

I realized that  it was going to be a bad day.

You see… My sandals that have been with me up and down the Caribbean

had seen their last day in the sun. Why is a pair of sandals so important??

Well it was a present from someone who would never again give me

even a glass of water. On top of that I have trekked up and down the

Pacific cost from South of Seattle all the way to Cabo, and the Atlantic

coast from North Carolina to the tip of Florida passing through South Carolina,

Georgia, Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, California, Arizona,

Nevada, Sonora, Mexico. Sinaloa, Mexico. Baja, Mexico. Chihuahua, Mexico. St. John, VI,

Aruba, Barbados, Puerto Rico, etc, etc.,

I think you get the point.

I wish I had a Human Friend to have gone with me. None the least I will

miss my sandals.

Where have your travels taken you lately?

Let’s make life about getting better and enjoy what we have in front of us.

It is about living life to the fullest.

I gave my sandals a watery grave and went back home bare footed.,

floating on a cloud of memories. About 10 years of memories.

To Us. To Living.

On Partners.

DSC_0052

Remember how easy it used to be to

call on your friends and get to misbehaving?

How come it becomes so hard to find a partner

to work out and hold you accountable?

I have been trying for quite a while to find someone

to go to the gym with me and have been unsuccessful.

For many, what we do is difficult and weird or at least

inconvenient. The bad part is that as we go on

working out and exercising we get used to

doing it on our own and it makes it difficult later to

let anyone in the circle.

An accountability partner is always a good idea

so keep trying to find someone. And be patient

with them by the way. Remember WE are weird.

Keep the weirdness going gang who wants to be normal.

Normal is broke, Normal is fat, Normal is dull,

Normal is what NOT to be.

By the way. Those three monsters in the picture are

my kids Riley, Levi, and Logan.

Very, Very Personal Post.

498 (1)

If for just an instant God would forget that I am but a puppet of time and would bestow

upon me the gift of a chunk of life., I would use that time fully.

Probably, I wouldn’t say all that I think but I would definitely think about all that I say.

I would give value to things not because of what they are worth but because of what they mean.

I would sleep very little but I would dream more. I understand that for every minute we close our eyes

we lose sixty seconds of light.

I would walk while others stop, wake up while others still sleep.

If God would give me a chunk of life, I would dress modestly, lay face up to the sun uncovering

not just my body but also my soul.

To men I would show how wrong they are in thinking they stop falling in love when the grow old

without knowing that they grow old when they quit falling in love.

To a kid I would give wings but let him learn to fly on his own.

To old folks I would share that Death doesn’t arrive with old age but with abandonment.

So much I have learned from men.

I have learned that everyone wants to live a top the mountain not knowing that true happiness

comes in the challenge of the climb.

I have learned that when a newborn squeezes  with his tiny hand his father’s finger

he is trapped forever.

I have learned that a man only has the right to look down on another man when he is

helping him stand up again.

It has been so many things I have learned from all of you but really it will not be of much

use because when I am placed in that big suitcase I will already be dying.

Try to say always what you feel and do always what you feel deep inside your heart.

If I knew that today would be the last time that I will see you sleep, I would embrace you tightly

and pray to God  to allow me and be the  guardian of your soul.

If I knew this would be the last minutes I would see you I would tell you ” I Love You”

And don’t assume foolishly that you knew already.

There is always another tomorrow and life gives us another chance to mend things.

But if I am wrong and today is all we have left I would like to tell you “I Love You and I will never forget you”.

Tomorrow is not assured to anyone, old, young. Today could be the last time you see those you love.

Because of that: Wait no more. Do it today because if tomorrow never comes you surely will lament

the day that you did not take the time for a smile, an embrace, a kiss, the day when you were so busy to grant one last wish.

Keep those you love close to you, tell them to their ear how much you need them. Love them and treat them well.

Take time to say “I am sorry”, “Forgive me”, “Please”, “Thanks” and all the loving words that you know.

No one will ever remember you for your secret noble thoughts. Ask God the strength and wisdom to express them.

finally, Show your friends and loved ones just how much they matter to you.

Strength.

a person who fallsSince we will all fall “eventually”

we might as well plan on learning.

A fall, mistake or lesson is only bad

if we learn nothing from it.

We must remember that either we earn

or we learn. YES it is a win, win so don’t

let fear of failure keep you from trying.

We are on this together so if I can be

of any assistance reach out, write me at

Sharing is caring so please care or share below.

Ceiling.

Dont everEvery day we compromise. We give in a little

and before we know it we have gone too far.

It is not just in the giving but also in the taking,

and accepting that we can find our life taking turns

that we had never plan or even considered.

We must stand resolute in what we want.

We must remain focus and centered so that

our hopes, dreams, and goals stay in the place

they deserve.

Our life is worth of us showing up with our

“A” game. It needs our total and complete

commitment so eventually we can look back

at an imperfect but complete road and be able

to say with pride “Wow, What a ride., I did

the best I could and I am ok with me”

Gang. I am today sending you good vibes.,

I hope truly for all the best for each and

every one of you.
