May the 4th

Sometimes it's difficult to decide which gift to give someone who you feel like they've showered you with so many. Not materialistic gifts such as an iPad mini or a Galaxy S4 per say, but gifts of encouragement,  of motivation, of support, not to mention many others.  These gifts are not only priceless, but they last a lot longer. 

So my wish to give a gift to someone who has given so much of the above to me, is the gift of gratification,  of gratitude to someone who is celebrating her birthday today...:


 HAPPY BIRTHDAY 
KARLENE!
and many more!






May the 4th be with you!


XOXO J.

"Understanding Air France 447"

RATING:

Looking into the eye's of the passenger profile photos of some of those on board after having read this book, I could never begin to understand what was going through their minds during their final thoughts and moments alive on aboard Air France flight 447.

A 26 year old doctor from Ireland, an 11 year old student from the United Kingdom, 29 year old Brazi…

Flight For Sanity

"While it’s tempting to play it safe, the more we’re willing to risk, the more alive we are. In the end, what we regret most are the chances we never took."

FORD INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
Grand Rapids, Michigan
April, 2017

With seconds to go, I was making a mad dash down the concourse.  Of course my gate had to be the last one at the end.  The chances of me making the next flight out after to the concrete jungle were growing very slim.  In the distance, I could hear a small boy ask his mom, "Why is that man running?"  Barely hearing anything over the sounds of rushing blood and adrenaline, I heard the mother explain that I was running to catch a plane.
As I ran, I flew into my subconscious and thought about the times where I wish I had ran towards something, risking everything valuable in life because of something I believe in, instead running of away from something due to fear of how bad it would impact my life.   Risks that were worth taking, that I never…

The Gift of Giving

"In realizing the gifts..I was born with, I.. realize.. by sharing them - I'm gifting a part of myself for all humanity to share."  - Eleesha

This happens to be one of my favorite quotes from Eleesha, because we live in a world of give and take.  As much as I feel guilty of taking from others, I try and replace that with giving all my time and talent that I have to offer.   
As prepare to bring Chapter 39 to a close, and prepare to start writing Chapter 40 of my life today at 2:10 p.m. EST, I remember this purpose quoted above, to keep sharing what I have to offer for others even more so - like I have been for so long.  I am very thankful to have so many gifts that have been given to me, such as 
FamilyFriendsTalentsThe ability to have a moral conscience to discern right from wrong.
and last but certainly not, least - what I, and what most if not, all of us take for granted - 
The ability to wake up each morning and taking our first breath of the day.  To realize that we ar…
