Go Another Round

With all of the World Cup Hype that is going on, I almost forgot that I needed to reregister with the United States Soccer Federation as a referee.  This is something that has to be done every year; a background check and completing a series of written/online tests and depending on your level of officiating,…

Past That One

Two very special things happened today, that I am so very grateful for. The first is….The United States Men’s Soccer team won their third game of the group stage at the FIFA World Cup Tournament; this means that they now advance on to the group of Sixteen, better know as the Knock Out Stage.  The…

Why Wait

I may wait just to mess with my brother.  If I don’t get this posted by mid-night tonight, I will owe him five dollars; so if this was April Fools Day rather than Thanksgiving Day, I may wait until 23:58 tonight to post this blog. Today is Thanksgiving Day, here in the United States.  I…

Working it.

I recently took a Motivation Quiz for one of my classes that I am enrolled in.  The quiz results were no surprise to me; they confirmed everything that I know about me already.  I will continue to work on my weaknesses or faults and I will continue to progress forward.  If you want something bad…

Turn the Page

And just like that, today, my travel plans have changed, not once but twice for two separate trips.  One trip was for business and the other was for school.  The good news is that I am able to shift, without any major complications, and make some changes in my plans and life continues on. I…

The little things

I am grateful for being able to take some time to spend with family and friends.  We should not travel alone in this life and family and friends are usually there for us.  I had a great couple of days with both family and friends this past weekend.

Bounce

Today I am truly grateful for the ability to schedule this post early or ahead of time.  I know that I will be very busy tomorrow and probably won’t have time or want to write this post then.  So today, a day early, I am writing and scheduling this post.  Don’t put off what you…

Growth

Today I am grateful for the growth that I have gone through this past decade, the continued growth of myself and the people that are around me. It really is great to see the productive movement of a positive life.  It is what keeps me coming back, smiling, each day.  

WOW!

What a week!  I have been in two states, California and Washington, three different regions of California all within four days.  I was able to sleep well last night, so I am functioning well today.  Today has been productive, from kayaking in upper Newport Beach Harbor, (Back Bay), for one class; getting some work done…

‘Bout Time

Time passed so slow when I was younger; now it slips through my fingers and my toes and I am not able to grasp it. I am guessing that as we get older, we become busier and there doesn’t seem to be enough time. Enjoy the little moments where you are happy to let time…

So many

Once again, I will state, there are so many things to be grateful for. If you are prepared to do the work you can do anything that you want. There are so many resources available. I am grateful for all these resources, this knowledge and the drive to change my life and the lives of…

Celebrate

This past Sunday we, my family, celebrated my mother and her love for this world. It was a wonderful three-part celebration. We started at Crystal Cove State Beach, moved to a church in Laguna Beach and finished off at the home of my younger sister in SJC. We, the family were joined by friends and…
