Life has several different ways of slowing us down…and getting sick is just one of those. There are times when life can be rather hectic and we can find ourselves running here and there, to and fro. It’s all a part of modern life and it seems a faster pace is required for most allContinue reading “100 Days of Writing – Day Sixty-Two”

100 Days of Writing – Day Sixty

“You cannot push the river.” I was reminded of this quote today in a counseling session and it really hit home with me in my recent mode of thinking. If we are at a point in life when we feel like we’re swimming upstream against the current, it’s likely because we’re going against the naturalContinue reading “100 Days of Writing – Day Sixty”

100 Days of Writing – Day Fifty-Eight

I’ve always been fascinated with numbers. From a young age, I was drawn to them and what they represented. Now, many years later, I still notice numbers, regardless of when and where they appear. Today reminded me of my fascination with numbers and their possible meaning. Today I rolled into the McDonald’s drive-thru for myContinue reading “100 Days of Writing – Day Fifty-Eight”

100 Days of Writing – Day Fifty-Seven

It’s been a good long while…. It’s been a good long while since I’ve posted any writing in this arena. My interim teaching position took a great deal of my time and energy, but now that it’s done, I can come back to write from time to time. The interim position went well. I wasContinue reading “100 Days of Writing – Day Fifty-Seven”

100 Days of Writing – Day Fifty-Six

I saw this quote just yesterday and was reminded that both faith and fear share a lot in common. The basic premise for both is that we’ve chosen to believe in something that we cannot see. Sometimes that’s a bit hard to wrap your mind around until you consider that all that we can seeContinue reading “100 Days of Writing – Day Fifty-Six”

Maslow’s Hierachy of Needs comes into play…. One of the things I remember from my education courses in college is Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. I’ve become acutely aware of its truths over the past week or so. I do see that if one’s physiological needs are not met, all else in life can be thrownContinue reading “100 Days of Writing – Day Fifty-Five”

100 Days of Writing – Day Fifty-Four

One step at a time,,,,one day at a time. I am reminded in one of my daily readings this morning to take life one step at a time, one day at a time. I can look at the days ahead and be overwhelmed by all that I perceive I have to get done. The mind’sContinue reading “100 Days of Writing – Day Fifty-Four”

Random thoughts on this day…. It’s been over a week since I’ve last written in this series and I’m not focused on any one train one thought. Instead, a myriad of thoughts come across and through my mind this day.

100 Days of Writing – Day Fifty-Two

Jersey swap,,,a college jersey and neat story. I recently purchased a Lenoir-Rhyne University baseball jersey, one that was actually worn by a Bear baseball player. When attending the opening game of the football season with my wife, I decided to wear the jersey to support the home team. While I was waiting in line forContinue reading “100 Days of Writing – Day Fifty-Two”

100 Days of Writing – Day Fifty-One

In a get-together of like-minded friends, we discussed resentment and the power it can have in all of our lives. And perhaps most importantly, how to rid ourselves of it. Resentment is a feeling most all of us have had at some point-in-time,,,,or perhaps at many points in time. Someone has done something “to us,”Continue reading “100 Days of Writing – Day Fifty-One”
