Believe.

i believe

We all have different faiths and that is ok.

While I choose not to push my faith on

anyone I do believe and my faith makes

a difference every day of my life.

Because I know that my faith pushes

me I hope that your faith be it whatever

it might be pushes you to do and be

more and better.

Use it all to make a better you.

Get after it and let us make a difference

for those important to us.

Have You Ever???

Every now and then this thought

comes to mind.

For the most part I feel proud for

those things I have survived like:

being homeless, unemployed, broke,

rich, loved, hated, abandoned, betrayed,

alone, married, divorced, screwed, imprisoned,

left behind and so much more.

I am glad I am here, alive and still pushing

forward in trying to do and be better.

Grateful for my kids those here and those

elsewhere and for my wife and her

simingly endless patience towards me.

For those that left. For those that betrayed,

abandoned, I have just one thing to say

to you:                   Nothing.

Go out there and be a friend.

Go out there and try to make a difference.

A coin, a bite, a hand, anything other than

words and not because words lack value or

power but because words on an empty, hungry

stomach are not much more than noise.

Go make a difference if you can. Find someone

and not necessarily someone whom you know

but someone to who you can make a difference

and take a risk. Not a stupid risk but a risk..

Why do I say this??? Because over the years I have

had lots of acquaintances who have lots of words

and good intentions but no substance.

Be different be better be a friend.

Reality Kick In The Gutttt.

DSC_0429

This is a picture of a while back.

It is me at the beach with the daughters

of a lady friend. The little one Savannah

reminded me on that day why I needed to lose

weight on a hurry. Gang., I could barely keep up

with her and the reason is clear as you look at the

picture.  Between health, economic and other issues

I had once again ballooned in weight and could

hardly do anything.

Things have changed some and next time I will

be better prepared for her.

Reasons. We all have them and we also have

excuses so figure out what is important to you

and go forward with it.

Exercising and dieting are not things that happen

naturally or organically. You have to effect change in

your schedule and routine in order to make it happen.

So I now ask you: How important is this for you?

Your actions not your words will show your commitment.

Working on a better tomorrow see you then.

The Difference Of 1/2 A Pound.

half a pound

“Just 1/2 a pound.”

We at times seem to forget the power of compounding.

Darren Hardy the publisher of Success Magazine wrote the

amazing book “The Compound Effect” a book that I always recommend

to people going through a hard time accomplishing stuff in general.

this book is quite the handbook for change and accountability.

One 1/2 of a pound is a very significant amount of progress and

if you can manage to loose it consistently you are so far ahead few

will catch up with you.

All progress is significant and all progress is good.

Do not let small steps discourage you., instead push to make those

small steps the foundation of your major changes and accomplishments.

If you want to learn more about the book from Darren Hardy

The Compound Effect follow the link to my Kit.com page

and look at that and other books that will push you past

the real and made up limitations that we all have at times.

Wishing you lots of consistency and accomplishments.

Funny Fact On People.

Funny how people

The moment that someone decides to stand outside

of the circle there is always someone to try and drag him

or her right back in.

I have noticed that with weight loss is even worst than

with money or even relationships.

People do not take kindly of friends loosing the pounds.

The first criticism comes as a direct attack of your diet

which ever diet it happens to be.

Then if you dare have any success get ready for the

attack on your appearance. It seems like immediately after

you loose a pound or two you become the living image

of the walking dead or at least that is what folks will tell you.

Remain focus and centered and keep doing what you must

to get to your desired goal.

It is not for them., it is for you.

For continuing the process I salute you all.

Time, Places and living.

Two different worlds.

Same religion

different experiences.

This churches are about 2100 miles apart

one in Columbia, SC the other in

Caborca, Sonora in Mexico.

Four pictures that bring to mind memories

of food, travel, people, smells, conversations

and life. Some fun living.

I had great shrimp and gritts in Columbia

and was shown frienship and compassion

in Caborca. Impossible to forget either place.

So I ask you where have you been lately?

What new meal have you had and what new

relationships have you started??

And more importantly who have you helped.

Who have you been a friend to??

Step out of your comfort zone and go do

some living. Go do some good while

living well.
