When My Blog Gets Serious

I write about silly and sacred things here. Sometimes serious stuff has to be written about too. Keeping my blog fun and positive isn’t always possible. No matter what I hope you will still enjoy my post no matter the tone or subject matter. Blogging about life’s ups and downs is definitely keeping it real.

Thank you, my friends!

Thought Of The Day 01222022

In life you win some and you lose some. Sport teaches that life lession very well. My team lost today and they had a lot of advantages going into today’s game. It was a weird contest but in the end the better team on this occasion won.

You can’t win all the time but hopefully you give your best effort in the attempt. Everyone has experienced a defeat in something. The lesson you hope to learn is to get back up and try again. Life is a game we play daily. Let’s hope we pickup more victories than defeats in the process.

When You Can’t Think Of A Word

Dystopian… for the life of me I was trying to think of that word today as it relates to apocalyptic imagery. It was inspired by the song “It’s The End Of The World” by REM. Granted dystopian and apocalyptic don’t always have to go together but they do seem like good friends. Dystopian or dystopia are words that are not in everyday conversation, at least in my corner of the world and I am extremely glad for it if you know what I mean.

It’s frustrating when you know a word and it won’t seem to make it to your mouth. I suppose I had other things to be worried about and the word dystopia wasn’t all that important at the time.

Sunday Reflection: Redefining Love Of Country

Now is the time that the act loving your country be redefined. It is easy to wave a flag, go to a cookout, wear national colors. What is more difficult is to serve your fellow citizens, respect your neighbors for who they are and care about their well being as you do your own. It’s more than going to war it also means striving for peace in ones own communities.

Putting in the work to make your country the best it can be tough but through some sweat and sacrifice much can be accomplished. Nothing worth doing can be done with catch phrases and slogans. It requires a lot of dedication and so much more.

All these things can be applied just about anywhere in the world. None of this means being a nationalist because there is a larger global community in which each of us belongs to. No country or its citizens can truly go it alone.

You may have your independence, but you are still dependent on one another. Freedom’s bell cannot ring unless life, liberty, and happiness is guaranteed for all, no matter what.
