When one door closes, God will open another.

I have only quit one job in my life and I celebrated when I was fired on another job. I am about to have the same dilemma again.

You have to know your value, if a job feels uncomfortable to you there a reason.  Have your planned reaction ready.


Dilemma: a situation in which a difficult choice has to be made between two or more alternatives, especially equally undesirable ones.

We will have to say goodbye to many things in life.

Never can say, “Goodbye.” Jackson 5, Michael was about 10 years old when the song was written. It was a hit.  I loved to sing the song at a young age of about 10, not thinking I was actually going to have to say goodbye to many things through life whether want to or not things will change.  The weather will change, the people you hang around will change, and the ones you are close to will one day will not be there.  You will say goodbye to many things as time goes on, places and people are the hardest.  Many people have a hard time with the loss of animals, it can hurt as hard as a parent or child.

It’s true, you never can say goodbye because there will be pain and heartache that will follow you.  However, as time goes on, you will have to also.






Will you be ready to say, goodbye, to people and things in your life?

What are their things that you can’t say goodbye to?

What will cause you pain and heartache in your life?

What you never earned.







You can’t cry over what was never yours, Be envious over what was never yours, Disappointed over what you never to yours. God gives and takes it away.

Blessing come from God, and what you earn you have to work for.  These days alot of things get taken for grained.

You can show others how to live well.

Does your life have a meaning?  We all come into this world the same way, and we grow with every experience that we have in life.  We can show others how to live well, when we are happy and enjoying life.

Most animal will protect their territory and their young, it means everything to them. Your values are an example of how you lead your life.









There are things we want in life, however, are their things that you will and will not stand for also.  They can dictate your choices and what you want for your life.   Your values mean something your choices.

Who can see great things from you? You just have to be living and showing others how to live well.  A person who lives well will be showing others by their values.

The people who inspire me are the ones who always have something going on in their lives, the ones who are always looking for the next opportunity, someone who has a plan in the works, a person who is down for whatever comes their way.  I admire people who love are happy in the good and bad times.  They are the ones who are always doing something toward the future which is what we all should be doing.  Your future is what you want it to be, it has to have value and mean something

A rainy day in Southern California

We have been waiting for this rainy weather all week-long, in fact, most of us probably didn’t believe it would happen. Last week I purchased new windshield wipes because mine were worn out, but I waited until I saw the rain to put them on. That is what living in California mean, we don’t expect bad weather here. Last time I went out to do some things, when it was raining, I saw a few people in short pants and flip-flop shoes. I have walked out with no jacket or umbrella when it was raining. I love the sun but I also love the rain.

Change is good

It is a new day.

A new beginning.

Life is good.

You get up every day and prepare for a new day.  We change are clothes from what we worn the day before, we shower and comb our hair in order to look fresh for a new day.  It is a new beginning that comes along with a new day.  Life is good when you know that you can start again.  What is it that you would want to change from the day from before?

We should never hold on to issues that we can’t change.  It is hard to sleep when you can let something go.  You won’t move on if you are stuck in the same place.

I was given some good advice from someone one day.  I thought this person knows, so I went to work to make some changes.  We all are never to old to changes.  Listen when someone tells you something with an open mind, it may be important and just what you need to know.

We will move on in life. You get many choices.

When my son learned to play the drums at a young age, every chance he got he would play. He went all over town, seven days a week, if you called him, he would be there. He would walk through the house, stomping his feet, and banging of things with the drum stick as if he was playing the drums.  Then he joined a car club, I don’t remember how many times he came home with another car that he put all his money into only for it to be junked. One day he made another decision, to leave it all and . We all have to make a road for ourselves through our lives. There will be many choices, not just one.

Is it your child’s dream to be president one day?

I wonder if Obama ever thought of be president when he was a small child?  I remember playing with the other kids when I was a young child, sometimes we would play as if we were in a classroom, someone always wants to play teacher and teach everyone.  A lot of kids like to play doctors and give out medicine.  Most boys want to play being a soldier, police officer, or fireman, girls like to play with dolls, being the mother. Most boys will play sports and think about become a pro when they get old, girls dream of becoming singer, or fashion model.  I don’t ever remember anyone saying I want to be president.   

Of course, many kids at a young age play sports with friends, like kick ball, track and football, hope to one day become a professional.  How do people decide they can be president and run a country.  It not like running a business, or even being a Judge, like some kids like to play.  To image yourself at a your age thinking of ways to cut the budget and spending for the world is something else.   

My son did not decide to go to the military until he was in his last twenties, my friend’s daughter join the military at eighteen.  Every child will see a direction for their life as time goes on.   

 With the drama involved in politics today, does any young person want to take on, thinking that they can do a better job?  Is there a future President in your child?  Do kids today even set their goals that high, at young age?

What have you done to make life better for other?

We all have to look the mirror at where we were and where we are going in life.  This year there was a large stand with the #timesup movement and the silent breakers.  Many big name people donated to the case including Oprah.  If you have ever seen or experienced sexual unfairness on the job then you know why it is a worthy cause.  Of course, it would not have happen if one person did not take a stand.  One person was willing to stand up and tell it like it is.  Every time someone brings up issues that we know about, but are too afraid to speak up about the in justice, it shamed us all.  Think about all the years when those white only and black only water fountains exited.  There are many people including Dr Martin Luther King who step and said no more of this in justice.  Happy Birthday Dr. King, we honor you the standing up.
