I’m home again after being at the hospital since the 8. of June. I came home late Monday and now I try to find a new rhythm in my new life
As many of you know, my daughter was so kind to update you about, what was going on with my health, for what I’m very grateful and huge thanks to my dear friend Amy for her kind help with posts, while I was away
I don’t have much energy or abundance yet, but I wish to let all of you know, that I feel very grateful for all your love, prayers and kind wishes for both my family and me
For describing my health simply, when I went into the hospital; I got an serious infection in my lungs and my other organs were close to shot down too. The doctors told me, that if I was…
That amazing future and glorious tomorrow. Always enticing us to move time forward so that we may rush what is now for a moment much more beautiful than this. A tomorrow much more gorgeous and radiant than the present. The present. What of this? What of now? What of our quest for some rare and perfect tomorrow when today is already a precious gift? Today is normal but it is here and living and present. We know not what the future holds. In fact, we know nothing but now. This moment. This treasure of breath in mouth. Today is good.
A few years back I made some drastic changes. In 2013 I decided enough-was-enough and I went through a revolution of my mind and habits. Here are a few of the things that I stopped doing which made me a happier person:
It’s not always easy to endure, but may today be different. May the seeds of goodness root themselves in your souls. For without seeds the earth is barren land. Do not worry then if things do not start out as tree stumps, for even it started first as a seed. From there the seed grows roots and they lock and load themselves into position, like protest hands before the face of Civil Disobedience, we shall not be moved. Roots are the key, for once the roots have super glued themselves in good soil a seed gives birth and a tiny plant eventually breaks through. When this happens, we say that a seed has sprouted. And so, today, may your seed sprout. May it become one with the soil in which you’ve planted it, and may it root itself. Understand that it must first start off as a seed. Tiny. Unnoticeable…
I finished up with a late-afternoon appointment with Seven Jars Distillery. (click to check out their website). I’m going to be helping them with their marketing and the owner gave me a great bottle of wine. It is peach-apricot Chardonnay and it is delicious. The perfect ending to a great day!
“Passion will move men beyond themselves, beyond their shortcomings, beyond their failures”. – Joseph Cambell To have a passion, is to live life to the fullest. With the energy and the zeal to fully enjoy each day. To wake up and do what you love and what motivates you. But sometimes we can feel like…
Sometimes success isn’t found when you find the right path, but in finding the right person. For me this was definitely the case. I spent many years throwing ideas against the proverbial wall only to experience failure after failure. I lacked focus and ambition. I was a wisher, not a doer. I saw things I wanted, but was not able to construct the path to get to the goal.
All of that changed when I met my wife Evelina. In her I found my focus and successes would soon follow. I cannot explain why this happened except that she believed in me more than I believed in myself and she did not allow me to make excuses.
All those years I was looking for the right thing to do, when all along I needed the right person.
A few months ago I formed a networking group with an old friend and golf pro friend of mine, Scott. Today we are meeting for lunch at this nice little spot, Duckworth’s Grill, in south Charlotte. Networking is crucial in business as it is often “not who you are, but who you know”. Now it’s time to find a healthy food option!
