The most successful people are those who encourage and enable others to succeed....

I just read this on one of my daily motivators and thought about how it applies to my life. I don't have much to give and many of you that know me on a personal level know that I live for right now. I don't like fretting about the future, I dislike worrying about the past. I don't have much material substance to give back, but the one thing i do feel i can give is my ability to believe in people.
I remember growing up that I never felt as if anyone really truly believed in me. My efforts were half hearted and just to go through the motion. As I have grown, I now share the belief that, anyone can do anything they set their mind to. I always want to be known as a source of inspiration to my friends. Our limiting beliefs are our only source of doubt and keep us from not accomplishing the things we really see as important.
I am not able to give lots of money to charities or donate tons of time to a particular cause, but one that I am fond of is you! Because I lived s…

sometimes it just happens...

There is no easy way to go from being an eligible bachelor to dating and being in a committed relationship. I know what i have preached about the joys of being single and my lack of belief in a true companion or as some call it a "soulmate", but things happen when you begin to let go of limiting beliefs. Often times it will happen to you when you don't expect it at all, or you are not looking for it.
This is the case for me and how things happened recently in my life. If I offend anyone in this article, please do not take it personal, it is just a recap of events. I was returning from San Francisco from much needed "okay what am i doing with my life and what is my purpose and where do i see myself in 6 months" trip. I went to stay with my dear friend Judy, who offered up her couch and in a very quick decision i had left by 4pm for my drive up the 5.
Being on the road felt good, i was able to enjoy a beautiful sunset, some great scenery and good coffee and …

Somedays are covered in gray....

I have this insane urge to jump off a bridge and sit at the bottom of the ocean and just watch as my life fades away. Sometimes we get hit with the "we really don't matter" in the grand scheme of things, today is no exception. I have been pulled to a place where i am all to familiar. I am trying to make the switch and come out but as i look around, i feel un-needed.
I give great advice to people and i am realizing that i need to take my own advice. I sit in the midst of an unknown situation, unknown living and unknown work. I tell everyone to hold steady on the work front and that work will appear, yet in my own life, i have no work til June. Some would say that could be a blessing or a curse. Currently with no definite living situation and no steady income, i would have to say, at this moment it sucks. I meander in to the unknown and my life is completely unknown.
We want to put our lives into a little box. We need to be able to classify what our life means i…

The loss of Bob Nanninga...

Wow is all i can say. Again i reiterate my point that life is way too short and we have to enjoy every moment of it. You may recall my post about Bob a few months back. I was elated to have dialogue with him and he even retorted to my comment in his column. I have always respected Bob as a person even if some of his views were far away from mine.

Here is what was written about him:
ENCINITAS ---- The work Bob Nanninga did over the last 15 years to push for more arts and environmental sensitivity in Encinitas has helped make the city a better place, friends, family members and city officials said Monday.

"This town really owes him a debt for what he’s done for all of us," said Councilman Dan Dalager, who had been close friends with Nanninga for the last 10 years.

Nanninga died of pneumonia Saturday at a La Jolla Hospital. He was 45.

His enthusiasm in promoting art and environmental issues was contagious, Councilman Jim Bond said.

"He really walked the walk," Bond said…
