About dray0308

I graduated from UNC Charlotte with a BA in Religious History with an emphasis in early Christian origins. I have spent my adult life as an amateur philosopher and avid student of the academic side of Christian origins. My interest in philosophy has led me to observing human behavior, especially as it relates to personal fulfillment and achieving success. It is my mission to help dreamers understand how to become doers. By understanding a few universal principles those that wish, hope, dream, but never achieve can find the personal success they have always wanted.

My Week 195: It’s The Allergies That Are Annoying, Not Me

mydangblog

The other day at work, I was just standing in the kitchen, thinking about nothing in particular, like LITERALLY minding my own business, when the guy who oversees the kitchen things came in and said to me, “Is that your toast in the toaster oven?” And while this may seem like a perfectly innocuous question, like something you would say just to make conversation, there was an insidious undertone to it that you would only recognize if, like me, you work in a place where you are NOT ALLOWED to leave toast unattended in the toaster oven. “Because I came in earlier,” he continued ominously, “and there was no one here.”

I was a little freaked out and didn’t want to be blamed for the toast insurrection, so I immediately said the first thing that came into my mind, which was “No—I don’t eat gluten” to which he replied, “There’s…

The Most Amazing Thing Happened Last Night!

The Most Amazing Thing Happened Last Night…

I ACTUALLY SLEPT GREAT IN MY HOTEL ROOM!  I know this might not seem like a big deal to you, but for me getting more than 4-5 hours of sleep away from home is incredibly rare.  Last night I got a solid 7.5 hours!  I feel completely rested and ready for the day.

Today I have a few sales calls to make with reps, a quick manager’s meeting and then I’ll be headed back to Charlotte for a little rest.  I am not traveling next week which will be a nice break and then I am off to the coast to work with a property for a month.  It will be nice to be near the beach!  Plus Evelina is going to fly in on a couple of weekends for us to spend some time together.

Needless to say I enjoy traveling, but I miss my wife and Bentley.  Tonight we are meeting friends for dinner at Charlotte’s best Mexican restaurant and I’m not sure what I’m going to eat.  Dinner dates are great, but I now look forward more to the conversation and less to the food.  This UC situation is no joke and it greatly limits what I can eat.  I guess it could be worse.

That is all for today from me.  I hope everyone has a great weekend!

6 Tips To Make Gardening Easier When You Have A Chronic Illness

Reclaiming HOPE

Zucchini and Yellow Squash with Text Overlay 6 Tips To Make Gardening Easier When You Have A Chronic Illness https://reclaiminghope.blogEight or nine years ago, my uncle gave me my very first tomato plant — and some horse manure to go along with it. Little did I know that little gift was going to give me a passion for something that I never had the slightest bit of interest in prior to that time. When I was a teenager, we had a garden but I’d do anything I could to get out of working in it. Thankfully, I had a part-time job, so my brothers got stuck helping out in the garden and I was able to escape that drudgery. Fast forward…..well, let’s not worry about how many years….and I was driving home with a tomato plant and a bag of horse poop in the car….

A hug for Saraa…

Cyranny's Cove

Dear Lovelies,

Today I break my blogging-pause silence for a good reason. Not a happy one, but something worth a mention…

As you all know, blogging is about sharing thoughts and stories, but it is much more than that. The Bloggosphere is a community, and a place we come to when we need some support.

This morning, terrible news awaited me when I turned on my tablet.

You might already know Saraa, from It’s me Saraa. If not, you should really get to know the bubbly, witty, sweeter than sugar girl! This bright young woman always manages to put a smile on my face, but not today.

To make a long story short, Saraa’s little brother took his life yesterday. Knowing how important family is to her, I can hardly imagine how painful it is to go through life for her at this moment.

So if you have…

Day 29 – Green Light

2 R Better Than 1

A few days ago, I was searching for inspirational quotes to give to a young lady who doesn’t know the Lord. She has lots of struggles — including depression. As a strategy for countering some of her dark thoughts, her counselor recommended going on Pinterest to find inspirational quotes and memes. I was inspired to help her create a scrapbook to keep at school that she could pull out whenever she feels unsafe. It will serve to remind her that she is loved and valued. In her case, irrational fears and unbelief are keeping her stuck in a scary cycle that’s hard to break without a strong foundation of trust in the Lord.

We are like this young woman in some respects. We want to do what’s right, but we question whether the choices we make are the right choices. So, we ask others for their opinions and ask God…

Blog networking is one of the most undervalued and underused strategies for most.  But I believe it is at the core for growing a blog.

You will find links in this post to help eliminate some of the work; all you have to do is LIKE, COMMENT and FOLLOW others. The more you network with other blogs, the more other blogs will network with you!
