Pure Perfection

MONDAY MOTIVATION




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.

Getting Back Up

It's important to notice and remember how we get knocked down.


It's just as important to see how we pick ourselves back up again and be even stronger than we stood before.







I was even more proud to be a New York City resident on September 11, 2001 to see the millions of us bundle together and stand strong against the forces of core evil to help each other and rebuild to something even greater.  We shall never forget that.



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…

She's on her way!

FRIDAY FOTO

It's Friday and the weekend is here.  And yes, Darby is on her way for another visit.  I see her flight on the stormy horizon which will be coming to our West Michigan mailbox soon.  A flight, we have been waiting for, for a very long time.
We are proud to say, that we've made an extra room for her in our library among the series next to "Flight For Control", "Flight For Safety", "Flight For Survival" and  next to the motivational work "Flight To Success: Be The Captain of Your Life."
Also sitting in our office library is "I Am Awesome! The ABCs of Being Me" a children's book which not only will be sitting in our office library, but in the library of some of the local elementary schools in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
"Flight for Sanity" has just been released, but to get the full effect of it, it is highly recommended to read the first three in the series.  For sure, leaving a comment of each of the novels …

An Open Mind

Have a great week, (Shavua Tov) everyone!

Second To The Right

Second To The Right by Zach Neuman
Genre: Fantasy Rating 5 Stars

To the other orphans, it was paradise.  To David, it was a prison.  Behind the dark walls and black bars where Latin might as well have been the official language, David knew that his fate was sealed with a seal that he knew he had to break and break quickly.  He was determined to see the sunlight that was being blocked by the walls of St. Augustine's.  Father Kenneth gave him the throttle for his plan to escape - to take off.
What lay outside of those walls he was trapped behind was an unforgiving world to which he would have to learn new skills in order to survive.  Skills which in his wildest dreams he never thought he would never have to learn, nor use.
What was most enjoyable about this book is the fact that the story about David's determination relates to many aspects of some of my personal life journeys.  Some of these journeys I have written about before, others, I will leave to your imagination as to what t…

Better Late Than Never

It's the first end of the month for the new year of 2017.  As the phrase goes, "better late than never."  We saw a 2016 pass us by that was turbulent with much loss.  Loss of loved ones, loss of jobs, loss of pretty much everything in between... even our sanity.  The souls we've lost could never be replaced, however, 2017 is going to bring promise because I always love to think that when we loose, we always have something better to gain in order to replace it.  Whenever there is a sunset, there will also be a sunrise.
I am personally looking forward to what 2017 will bring: high flight time, many viola practice sessions, this summer and being able to get out and enjoy nature, perhaps a trip up to Interlochen, Michigan where I used to work every summer after high school.  Out of all, I am looking forward to the optimism that 2017 will bring.  Not only how many doors are hiding behind 2017, but how many will open, because, opportunity will always be knocking.
I hope y…
