Dance In The Rain
I dance in the rain with thee.
For your mind and soul set me free.
Laughter and love on this night.
Together, we will not be fright.
Standing against the storm.
This is how love does form.
I cherish this moment for all time.
And hope I never turn into a lime.
For when that happens, all is lost.
Love is always the last to be tossed.
I will always remember you.
Even if it means, that I’ll turn blue.
Despite the fact, we’re worlds apart.
Only you can have my heart.
Changing Winds Prevail
The world around me is narrow and thin.
This is not something, I can easily win.
Chaos and the hectic abound in this wood.
Though I look around and see much good.
People are skeptic and thus they can’t see.
The world around them is already free.
From the lies and turmoil of their lives.
The passion and love, that’s what drives.
For they know the secret, from within.
That the thoughts have always been.
They strive for all they’ve done.
All you can think of is a pun.
Open your eyes, so you can see.
Change always starts within thee.
You’ve got that idea and you want to make happen. How do you go about it? Well, sitting on your butt all day won’t help.
It helps to get out of the house once in a while. Give yourself some time away from the computer or what ever you happen to be doing. Go for a walk, bike ride, or run. It’ll help you cool off and relieve stress. This tactic works for me quite often. I feel exhausted but refreshed at the same time. If you know what I mean.
After a short break to rest up, I’m ready to go back at my planning.
Now that you’ve had a chance to relax and do something different for a change, it’s time to start putting things all together. You need a plan to help you get that plan going. In other words, you have to create a plan to get yourself off the ground. This is the second step and very important.
Without a strategy to get off the ground, you may as well hang it up. This is where a lot of people fail. Trust me, I know a thing or two about failing. Idea after idea, excuse after excuse, and what do I have to show for? Nothing. This is my attempt at actually making something work for a change. Now I need a strategy.
Where do you want to go?
First off, we have to figure out where we want to go. I’ve decided on England. I want to see various parts of England, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland. The UK is a great place to start. Lots to do, lots to see. When I’m done with the UK, I’ll head off to Scandinavia. Very beautiful country lies in Scandinavia. Much untouched beauty there.
Not only do we have to know where we want to go, but we have to know what we want to do. The basics I know. I want to immerse myself into the cultures, taste the food, experience the life of the people, learn their language, etc. It will be a whole new take on a journey that will be filmed and photographed for the world to see.
How are you going to fund this project?
I don’t know if you’ve noticed or not, but traveling is expensive. Filming and Photographing foreign lands, takes a lot of money. I think a great place to start would be Kickstarter. Many shows and films have got off the ground via pledges through Kickstarter, not just films though, art projects and many other things as well. Just about anything you can think of.
The problem for me at the moment is going to be coming up with a Business Plan. That’s basically what I need to succeed. I need to figure out what kind of equipment I’m going to have to take with me, the associate cost with traveling, how much I’ll need to spend on food, any clothing expenses I’ll incur, sleeping quarters, and even how I’m going to put all of that together.
Where to go from here?
From here on out, there’s no looking back. I’ve got to make myself get up each day and do some research. Find out as much as I can about what I want to accomplish out of this journey. So, I’m committing myself to at least two hours of research every day to gather the information I need. I’ll come up with an estimated cost of this trip and I’m sure it’ll add up. Documentaries aren’t cheap. Once I’ve gathered all the information I need, I can head off to Kickstarter.
It’s all uphill from here. Strap yourself in for the ride.
There is a great quote that was shared with me this past week. ”If you don’t risk anything, you risk even more.” by Erica Jong
This has a lot of meaning to me in the recent days. This quote can be taken in several different ways. It can be taken in a Psychological way, or a Physical way.
What this means to me is that you have to put yourself out there. You can say what you want to do all you want. If you don’t actually get out there, nothing will ever happen.
Why is this important? It’s everything you will become. It’s your future.
My plans to travel the world have taken a full turn. Instead of being lazy about it, I’m taking charge. I’m not going to sit here and be a lazy bum the rest of my life. Never.
I now have a goal. We can’t make that goal happen though without dedication. So, what am I doing to make it all happen? What’s my dedication?
My dedication happens to be the fact that I know I’ll never get anywhere if I don’t do something now. So, why wait around for things to happen right? In order to get some where, you have to have a plan.
Goals are useless without plans. That’s one thing that’s been holding me back. They say that realizing there is a problem is half the battle. I’m moving ahead at full speed now.
I’m inspired. Thanks to Social Media and the connections I’ve made, I’m able to push forward. And Kickstarter is going to help me get there.
My goal now is to do a bit of research and make a plan to make my dreams happen. Then it’s off to Kickstarter. I’ll get enough Pledges to at least get me where I need to be to get started.
What is my goal? Simply put, To Travel. My goal is to immerse myself into the world. Not everyone will have the opportunity to do so. I plan on making that happen.
Where there’s a will, there’s a way. I’ll find that way. Success is around the corner. Just in reach.
What are you going to do now, that you’ve been holding off? Are you going to let that last second slip away? That last chance?
We’ve all heard that little Pun, “A little hard work never hurt anyone.” Yeah, but I bet those people who made that statement, didn’t know anything about the world that we know now.
We should work and enjoy that work. We should work hard but not over do it. Over doing it creates injury. Much like I have now.
Some of you know this, some of you don’t, but I have a Hernia. Doesn’t hurt,so I’m not really worried about it. I’ve also used it as an excuse to become lazy. No more.
Working hard feels great, many fitness trainers can attest to that. What doesn’t feel good, is working yourself so much that you’re exhausted at the end of the day. You know what I mean. Working 10-12 hour days, come home, then all you want to do is eat and slep.
If you workout too hard, you could end up getting a Hernia, or even a herniated disk in the spine. What about knee injury? What about hip injuries?
Even just plain hard work can cause injuries when you’re not careful. Depends on how fit you are and how active you are. This is why it’s important to work your way up at a pace you can handle.
How does this correlate to lessons in life? When we’re trying to become successful, people often work long hours, even swing shits, this puts unnecessary strain on the body. Take a break, take a step back. Let your body rest, or at least build up your endurance for such task.
Working harder, for longer hours, isn’t always better. That’s not getting you ahead. In fact, it may even be pushing you back, taking years off your life. There is a great quote……
“Work smarter, not harder.” Take that to heart.
Silly puns. Don’t even get me started on “The Lord Is My Shepherd.”
What are some of the puns that you’ve noticed are silly? What are your favorites? Some of them are actually funny jokes. Go ahead, make us laugh.
There are many things that are necessary for Humans to exist. Touch, Feeling, Experience, Love, but what about Communication? We all need it to exist, but are you getting enough of the right kind?
Stem Cells…..Upon the moment of Conception, a Human Being starts to develop. But, what many people don’t stop to think about is the fact that how many Stem Cells it takes to get the job done. From day one, Stem Cells are working inside the Human to be, simply to make it all possible.
Millions of Stem Cells are required to get this massive job done. Imagine, Millions of little things, working together, communicating on a scale that is unprecedented in all of the Human History. We’re talking about communication on a level that is hard to even imagine.
What’s so special about this? The communication that takes place in order to tell which group of Stem Cells becomes the Heart, which group becomes the Brain, which group becomes the Liver, and so on. If you really think about it, it’s mind boggling.
So, here’s my dilemma. If these Millions of Stem Cells can work together to create a human, with no physical errors, or any major physical errors. Then why is it that two Humans often have a hard time communicating? More specifically, the Male/Female relationships?
You always see people ignoring each other, neither one wanting to sway to one side, some even throwing stuff, while others merely just avoid the situation all together. Seriously? What’s the big deal?
Someone, please explain this to me. Chances are, you probably can’t.
Still, It’s food for the thought. Enjoy.
