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 you all see a year of optimism and opportunity.  To gain as much as you can from life out of this year.  Not only to speak your dreams, but to take action to your words so that your spoken dreams can become your greatest realities.  

Thank you to all of my readers for your all of your support in 2106 and I wish each and everyone of you a successful, healthy, and optimistic 2017 ahead!

  1. Jeremy, I too am looking forward to what 2017 will bring! Health and happiness... and inspiration. We don't know why the things happen to us... but we have to believe that there is a reason. And it's up to us to live that purpose. Happy New Year my friend!

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.

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…
