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.
Six years ago I registered a domain and hosting with WordPress.com planting my flag in this great blogging community. Thanks to all who have found their way here in one way or another. I appreciate your interest and curiosity. The connections I have made over the years has expanded my horizons and understanding of life in general
I am not a big fan of Tuesdays and this particular one wasn’t the best, just like last Tuesday. Can Tuesday’s be removed from the calendar? It turns out that some Monday’s are actually better. Go figure.
My domain is renewed for another year of blogging and fun. Sure, WordPress has had some interesting developments but I am good to roll with the punches. Connection, communication and conversation are important things when blogging and I am glad I have a platform to do all that here.
Thanks to you all for continuing to support me, like my posts and connect here. Keep on blogging good people. Love and peace.
Today I was looking at my blog and I discovered I haven’t written a long-form post in awhile. Usually, my posts are short and concise because I am not a prolific writer. Sure there is plenty to discuss in the world but maybe there is too much to chose from. It’s my goal to chronicle and curate the sacred, serious, and silly things going on in my head.
Sometimes that means a picture, a video, a quote, or other sorts of media that can get my point of view across. Paying attention to stuff can be the best inspiration for my blog posts and I do hope they are interesting or at least tolerable to the reader. I do try to be aware of the fluid attention span of those who visit.
I enjoy stringing words together to form sentences like the next person but sometimes it can be tedious to write for writing’s sake. I do have a post about talking rattling around in my head and the irony there is that I am going to write about it. Let’s see how that goes.
This post is not even as long as some I come across so you can see what I am talking about here.
All any of us can do is to keep on blogging, keep on writing, keep on posting. As in life, we have to keep on keeping on.
To all those connecting here I appreciate your time to visit this small part of the blogosphere. You are always welcome here and I hope I am welcome on your screens of all sizes. Let us all keep on blogging good people.
Forces in your life will destroy you. Well not kill you but shape you in such a way that changes you for the better. Everyone is being destroyed by something that is making you who you were meant to be. Those are things that impact your whole life and everything that makes you the person you are.
Good destruction means allowing yourself to be transformed into someone better and to come into good forces that will show you a new way forward. Love is a good force that destroys and builds back better.
Your identity is being formed as you go through this life and hopefully, good things are influencing you. It’s incredible how a wrecking ball can take away the things that are doing bad stuff in your life. What is that thing that is making you that person you are supposed to be?
