Look For This Sign

If you travel the same road long enough, you will begin to recognize the signs. The problem is, seeing the same signs too often can be an indication that we’re going in circles.

To achieve our destiny we must be brave enough to veer off course. We can’t allow monotony and routine to steer our ship. We were born for more. We know it with everything in our being.

There are signs that indicate we are going the right direction: The unexplainable joy we feel out of the clear blue. The uncontrollable emotion that suddenly overwhelms us when we tell someone what we do. The indescribably peace we feel even in the midst of our greatest tribulation.

I can’t speak for you, friend, but I can speak for myself. All of the signs I’ve been seeing lately point to one direction: my destiny is straight ahead.

I encourage you, friend, press in. Now more than ever we must stay focused, set our heart and face like flint in the direction of our dreams, and remain unmovable, unshakable, until the very end, knowing IT IS OUR TIME NOW!

Sitting on the Fence Too Long Gives You Splinters In the Butt.

Are You Stuck?

Have you ever been stuck between two opinions? And worse yet, both of those opinions are yours?

Life is too short, and happiness is too free not to take full advantage of what belongs to you! But it will take you getting off the fence in order to get it.

Make a decision. Remember, sitting on the fence too long gives you splinters in the butt!

We are living in a world where we are able to form a virtual reality presence on a number of different platforms. Currently, we have YouTube, Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook and numerous other social media and dating apps available to us. Many of us use these apps recreationally for a healthy amount of time. Current research shows that 88% of 18 to 29-year-olds indicate that they use some form of social media, specifically, 78% among ages 30 to 49, 64% among those ages 50 to 64 and 37% among Americans 65 and older. It is estimated there will be 2.67 billion social network users by 2018.
