June Is LGBTQ Pride Month, Love IS Love – #lgbtq #PrideMonth

To my LGBTQ friends, may this June be one where you are always proud to be who you are no matter what. Celebrate life and the love you have. I love and respect you all! Grace and peace.

Thought Of The Day

As life goes on things change. Family changes too. We aren’t the same as time goes by. I am realizing that as we get older you will face all sorts of things that will challenge you and you don’t feel good all the time. It means you have to rely upon one another more than ever. Really means a lot when you have the spiritual support from friends in the wings.

Something About Desire

Universally we desire love, peace, companionship and comfort. Specifically and individually we have needful things like romance, faith, spiritual awakening and sex. It’s good for humanity for justice and reconciliation. How we realize those desires is a deeply personal thing.

Everyone wants to be heard and we fear these things we want not being realized in our lives. Desire is something we communicate through our words, looks and language. People need things that make life worth living. We feel desire in our bones and in our souls. Let our desire come from a place of goodness and never evil.

The blog is now using the Sela Theme which is very versatile and easy to read. When you visit you see it looks more like a homepage with a very cool look to it. At the bottom of the front page are my most recent articles, my best articles by visitation and a slideshow of what you can expect visually here. The menu can take you to any of the sites pages and other features. I customized the sites cascading style sheet to create a striking dark blue look with white font to make it stand out.

This is what you will see when you visit the site on your phone’s browser. The theme is adaptive and looks good not only on desktop but mobile too. On the phone it has the feel of an app which is nice. You can still find everything easily on your mobile phone.

Seasonally its good to change things up to keep things fresh and interesting. The key is to keep it readable and easy to use. Thank you for continuing to connect with me through my blog. Your friendship and support is appreciated as always.

Friendship Day 2018 #friendshipday

From what Google and Twitter say it’s Friendship Day and that’s cool. My view on this particular day which was founded in part by Joyce Hall of Hallmark Greeting Cards Company. The criticism is that it’s to sell and exchange greeting cards and other tokens of affection. You know what that would be fine with me. We need more expressions of love, affection and friendship these days.

We live in a mean world that needs softening up. Rediscovering tenderness and friendship is important to give us something to keep us going.

Personally I don’t have a best friend but many people I call friends. Those are people who you share a common view on life, you are there for one another when things get tough and people you can confide in. It’s important they are interested in you as a human being. I am blessed with a good family but there are extended family who I have chosen to be in my life. The one thing is that you hope as you are a good friend to others that they return the favor. Relationships need to be a two-way street to be successful and worth having.

Something About Consistently Producing

Without bragging I am pretty good at what I do for a living. So when I struggle as everyone does its frustrating. Lots of people feel this. You know what you are capable of and the level of your production is well above goal on a very consistent basis then it puzzles you.

Of course there are forces outside your control that can and will impact how you do so as the old saying goes you have to roll with the punches. Everyone has a bucket of some sort to fill in their line of work and its great when its filled daily. The goal is to do your best as to fulfill your expectations but never to put your coworkers down in the process.

Keep reminding yourself that tomorrow is another day to get it right and to consistently produce.

Word Of The Day – Daily Prompt: Camaraderie

Camaraderie is important to achieving a group goal or objective. It is also important in establishing relationships with others as you go through life. Whether it be in an organization or a group of pals that sense of friendship, kinship and even love has to be there for it to last.

At work camaraderie is important as you do your days work. You need those who are working toward the same thing to be with you on the journey. This is also about friendship and affirmation of those who you have chosen to be your non familial tribe. Of course you can have camaraderie with your family but there is a different dynamic there I think.

Fellow bloggers I think we have camaraderie as we write to figure out this crazy thing called life. Keep on blogging my friends.
