Here and Now

tumblr_navmpw7U4D1r5gmiko1_400Anton Chekhov once wrote that any idiot can face a crisis – it’s day to day life that wears you out. And he was right. I believe that most of us are strong enough to conquer the reality we live in, but so few of us are actually in control. It’s the ups and downs that make life interesting, to say the least. The struggles, the fights, the losses. Continue reading

Focus Fox says:  Wayne Gretzy said, “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take”. But if you take all the shots then have a barf bag handy and do not drive.

Levels

It’s safe to assume that the vast majority of you played a game of some sorts at least once. Computer, console, smartphone, it doesn’t matter. Or practiced a sport, tried to develop a certain skill or learn a craft.

Remember when you tried for the first time. Remember how bad you were. Then, if you kept at it, you became kind of good. As you progressed through the levels of this game, even though the difficulty increased, so did you skill. A beginner watching would find this as magic almost. They are unable to exhibit the same level of mastery as you.

The point of all this, you ask?

Well, it’s the same way for everything in life. Everything! Continue reading

“I had no idea what a reblog was but it certainly peaked my interest. I knew that I wanted to grow my audience, and yes, I had no idea where to start. Something about this reblogging idea kept pulling at me. I knew Cristian Mihai had a successful blog with over 120,000 followers. Why not? I thought. Why not invest in myself. I love to write and if I could invest a small amount of money to watch my stats and followers grow, wouldn’t that be money well spent? I decided to take the plunge and give it a try. Let me tell you, I was not disappointed.Having Christian reblog my posts gave me the opportunity to experience growth in my blog traffic that would have otherwise taken months, maybe even more than a year to replicate. The boost in traffic on my blog has reignited my passion for blogging. Thank you Cristian. I’m sure I’ll be purchasing more reblogs from you in the future, you have given me the opportunity to share my voice and thoughts with the world.” – Erin Cooper Reed

Hemingway’s six word short story

six_wordYeah, I know there’s no proof that he actually wrote it, but it’s still one of the most impressive sentences ever written. When I first read it, I spent half an hour imagining all sorts of plausible scenarios. I even thought about expanding the thing and write a real short story.

Maybe that’s one the most impressive qualities of art: makes your mind wander, makes you imagine and consider things you normally wouldn’t.

The Promise of Joy

Right before Thanksgiving I was speaking to a group of students on thankfulness and how to live a life that in gratitude to God for all He has done for us. I admitted to the students that I was amazed at how many people on social media jumped on the bandwagon to post “30 Days of Thankfulness” declarations on what they were thankful for during the month of November. My amazement came not from the fact that people jumped on the bandwagon to be thankful, but amazed at how quickly people forget the other 335 days of the year. It was as if so many had nothing to be thankful for the rest of the year. The students laughed. One student even said that he was saving up all his thankfulness for November so he could be SUPER THANKFUL. I am not quite sure I understand that, but I went…
