Recalibrating Ourselves

There are tools we use in our lives which need to be recalibrated from time to time. These are the really real tools you would use around the house or for a job you work. Typically these tools aid in measurement or leveling. I know the app on my phone, which is a level IContinue reading “Recalibrating Ourselves”

We Are Walking The Path…But, Have We Truly Accepted Our Path?

Acceptance. What a word really. It can mean a number of things. I feel it is a powerful word, as it is a declaration of what we want to do or where we want to go. We accept something and whatever that route is, it now lies in front of us. It, to me, meansContinue reading “We Are Walking The Path…But, Have We Truly Accepted Our Path?”

Take It All In: Part 2 (The Mountains)

I learned a lot about myself while we were in Oak Island, North Carolina. The ocean was amazing. So much power and yet so peaceful. Watching the waves roll in and crash on the beach is extremely relaxing to watch and listen to. I enjoyed hanging out with my wife talking and laughing together. BenContinue reading “Take It All In: Part 2 (The Mountains)”

A Message To Myself: Take It All In…It Is OK (Part 1- The Ocean)

I grew up in a family who liked to travel. My parents both are/were teachers (retired now and well deserved) which meant their summers were open and we were not going to waste it. We weren’t the family you’d find staying in a hotel and taking over the hotel pool. Nope, we were a campingContinue reading “A Message To Myself: Take It All In…It Is OK (Part 1- The Ocean)”

I’m Excited…I’m Apprehensive…Wait, What?

There is a song by The Doors called “Not To Touch The Earth”. I would say it is not one of their most well known tunes as it came out with the awesome Celebration Of The Lizard which is a set of poems and songs which all string together to form the Celebration Of TheContinue reading “I’m Excited…I’m Apprehensive…Wait, What?”

What Is Your Super Power?

I grew up a Superman fan. I am “grown” up now and still am a Superman fan. I was never really into the comic books, but when Christopher Reeve donned the red and blue with the “S” on the chest, I was hooked. I had a cape I would wear and run around the houseContinue reading “What Is Your Super Power?”

Maintaining Is Easier Than Starting Over

Running. The ultimate love hate relationship, especially for yours truly. I have been an on-again off-again runner for quite a few years now. During my heyday, maybe around 12 years ago or so, I got really into running. Never thought of myself as a runner per say, but after I started doing it I foundContinue reading “Maintaining Is Easier Than Starting Over”

What Am I Searching For?

Looney Tunes. Hands down my favorite cartoons ever. Without question. The antics never get old to me and it takes me back to a place where I felt good. This old place is based in my childhood, watching Saturday morning cartoons. No matter what other cartoons were on before, I was really there for whenContinue reading “What Am I Searching For?”
