Only Time Will Tell

"If you want something you never had...

      You have to do something you've never done..."

Last night at midnight, I finished writing the 38th Chapter of my life.  Today I started to write Chapter 39.  Thinking positively, I am now almost half way through the novel titled "Life."  One of the factors of life is decision making and being sure that the decisions you make are the right ones.  We all have and experience self doubt when making decisions, especially life changing ones. 

One thing I have to keep in mind, is that whatever decision I make or risk I take, it is the right one, even if it deviates me off the course of my goals - because in the end, it will get me there eventually.

Now that I am in the point of my life that I choose to sit back and take an assessment,, (and doing just that),  What risks I have taken and vow to myself that I will never stop taking risks.  Some risks do not work out the way we want, but time will tell, which risks pay off.  Timing is everything.  Just ask one of the world's most renown authors who was rejected by numerous publishers of her story of a young wizard with bottle cap glasses until she got the right one - and it landed her millions.  Yes, I am talking about you, J.K. Rowling.

March 7th, 1977 was the best day of my life, because it was my first day of life and the first day I could start taking risks.  Since then, I have taken a lot of risks which are too long to list.  Hadn't I had taken them, I would not be where I am today in every facet of life's lessons.

Today, on my birthday, I am thankful to be spending this gorgeous and special today with the best gifts I could have ever received - my family and dearest of friends - you know who you all are.  

As for you, get out there this Monday, this week, and when your gut tells you to do something - do it and do the right thing.  If it lands you in the gutter, then you know that you are on the right path because you know in the end, that risk you first took, in the form of many risks, will eventually land you exactly where you wanted to be, from day one - timing is the best path to success.  Ask any successful person.

Have a great week!



  1. Happy Birthday Jeremy! Yesterday I saw a movie about a young man who had a goal to make it to the Olympics and no matter the risk, he was going to make it. Despite anyone telling him he couldn't. Very powerful. So, keep taking risks and pushing forward. Living your life strong and never fearing to live to the fullest. Enjoy every moment!!! Happy, Happy, Birthday!!!

    1. Thank you so much, Karlene! I saw that same preview and I agree with you it will be a powerful movie. Yes, there is a time and place for risks and will enjoy taking them. Thank you so much once again and for your powerful comments!

"Understanding Air France 447"
by  Bill Palmer


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…

Pure Perfection


One of those most grand moments in life is where we discover and cherish the perfection within the imperfection.

Have a great week everyone.  Take nothing for granted whether its perfect or not.

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."

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…
