Your Mind: What is it soaking in?

Just a quick refresher and reminder that all us humans on this earth need to be very careful what we think and what dominates your thoughts.

I was reminded of this a couple times this weekend and realized we all can slip into the gulf stream of thoughts that are not productive.   Soak your mind in what you want, what you desire how you want life to be.  Your actions to achieve that goal will arrive eventually.

I have had the good fortune to read great books on personal achievement in my formative years and I KNOW it helped me greatly.


We all need to head back to the grass hill & blue sky.   

I see others around me struggle with finding a happy place for their mind to park… they have to change their thinking!!

I know EXACTLY the road I want to travel, and am going to refocus 100% on that. There are always hurdles to your goals, but think about it: no one gets up in the morning dedicating their life to personally stopping or wiping you out.  You have no one standing in the way. And none of us are in that position!

It is tough to get someone to change their thinking… but all you can do is help them see that they are soaking their minds in the wrong thoughts if asked. I did that this weekend and time will tell.  But in doing so it woke me up to a few things.  Just focus on what you want, ditch the negative thoughts.  They serve no one well.

We don’t beat the Grim Reaper by living longer, we beat the Reaper by living well and living fully, for the Reaper will come for all of us.

The question is what do we do between the time we are born and the time he shows up. It’s too late to do all the things that you’re gonna kinda get around to.

P.S.  The nicest person I have ever met  in my 46 years passed away yesterday.  I just found out today.  RIP Christine.  A true earthly saint if I ever met one.




A Smile On A Terrible Day

A Canadian Soldier from Hamilton, An American young lady – taken aback by his rugged good looks, she couldn’t resist the picture with him. This was on Sunday. This is our city.  This is our country. It makes me smile, because they are smiling. God Bless You Cpl. Cirillo.

That kid is getting wise and scholarly!
