Transformed: My Daughter’s Journey

All The Shoes I Wear

In A Word: Inspiring

It took 6 years after having my son for my memory to fade enough to have my daughter. 23 hrs of  labor is a strong deterrent.  My children were complete opposites. My son who was small, struggled to gain weight.  My daughter struggled with hers.

She was beautiful, smart, strong, a razor sharp wit and full of hilarity. She didn’t let her weight stop her from achieving whatever she dreamed.

By the age of 12, she could bench press 250 and she wanted to play football like her brother before her. She was one of the first girls to ever play boys football, having tried out, won her position as a starter on both offense and defense. She was also the first female to ever attend Razorback Football Camp at the university of Arkansas, Fayetteville at the insistance of famous coach, Houston Nutt who flew his…

I had this in half yearly exam paper, but this is something that needs notice.

Believe

Yesterday I had my english paper and one of the comprehension passages, brought to my notice this thing that is to be known if you havn’t yet. I have writen down the passage that came in my paper word by word and attached the concerned video. Please have a look.

“I took photographs, and Paul recorded video. As the bear approached the empty fuel drums looking for food, I could hear my colleages sobbing.
When Paul posted the video on Instagram, he wrote, ‘This is what starvation looks like.’ He pointed our that scientists suspect polar bears will be driven to extinction in the next century. He wondered whether the global popularion of 25,000 polar bears would die the way this bear was dying. He urged people to do everything they could do to reduce their carbon footprint and prevent this from happening. But he did not say that this…

Tuscan Steak

A Jeanne in the Kitchen

After our wonderful Caribbean vacation, where we ate mostly seafood, we came back really wanting and craving steak.   Like with everything else I cook, I like to make things in a variety of ways to keep our meals fun and exciting, so I am always coming with new twists to old classics.

I used a nice flank steak that I marinated with salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, paprika and Worcestershire sauce.  I let it marinate for about 4 hours before grilling it up.  To me, the best way to eat a steak is medium rare.  That’s when it is really juicy and tender and all the flavors just really pop.  But, as I always say, cook it how you like it.

To make my steak Tuscan style, I used fresh baby spinach, tomatoes, garlic, onions, mushrooms and butter beans.  Normally I use the smaller cannellini beans, but I accidentally picked…

What Is Mass Marketing And Is It Right For You?

IMwithJay

A couple of months ago I was introduced to a totally new concept…

…Mass Marketing.

What is Mass Marketing?

Maybe the simplest analogy is this…

You can fish with a net, or you can fish with a pole. In both cases you will catch fish, but with the net you will catch a ton more fish with a lot less effort!

The goal of most SEOs/Marketers is to create a perfectly optimized page with the perfect backlink profile so that their page will rank number 1 for a keyword phrase that gets 10,000 visitors per month.

They fight to get that ranking, then they fight to keep that ranking.

And when they lose it (which they most certainly will), they will repeat the cycle to try and get it again.

With mass marketing the “goal is volume, not perfection”.

Mass marketers “understand that landing 10,000 longtail listings that each…

Air Fryer Brussel Sprouts

The Pink Herald's Blog

In my goal to be a good, ok, better vegan, I am trying vegetables and foods I never thought I would eat.  On the list of intimidating foods I don’t typically eat are brussel sprouts.

I made them a couple weeks ago in the oven.  They were ok.  Nothing to write home (or on a blog) about.

When I was at church this past week, someone mentioned making them in the air fryer.  Now why didn’t I think of that?  I use the air fryer for almost everything!

As it would happen, I purchased another bag of brussel sprouts a few days ago.  Their health benefits outweigh my desire to forego eating them.  I decided to give it a go in my air fryer.

I quartered the large pieces and halved the tiny ones.  I used a tiny bit of olive oil (maybe two teaspoons – max).  A sprinkle of…

Teens and Suicide Prevention

Peace from Panic

September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) says each year, more than 41,000 people die by suicide.

teens in high school

Last week I went to a local high school to talk with students about mental health. I’m a presenter for NAMI’s in-school program, “Ending the Silence.”

My co-presenter and I spoke to two classes, one in the morning, one in the afternoon. When our first presentation ended, we noticed the teens looked almost stunned. During the question and answer period, no one wanted to say a word. It took some gentle nudging for them to ask us anything.

Then we thought about it… These were incoming freshmen, brand new to high school. Classes started two weeks before. They probably weren’t comfortable yet with their teacher, let alone their classmates.

And they’d just sat through an hour of us talking about a subject that isn’t usually spoken about…

What Do You Do When Faced With a Big Decision?

Danny

What Do You Do When Faced With a Big Decision?

Having options is supposed to be a great thing, right?!  But having options can create headaches as well, especially when an option presents itself unexpectedly.  And even more so when a great opportunity arises, but you are content in your current situation!

So what is one to do?

Any time I am presented with a big decision I tend to obsess for a short period of time and then I get to work on due diligence.  My first step is to mention the idea to my wife and get her gut reaction.  If her initial reaction is 100% negative I would probably not pursue or commit much time to consideration.  If her initial response is to ask questions then I begin step 2.

My second action is to make a pros and cons list.  I will make a couple lists, one for my current situation and one for the new opportunity.  This helps me weigh the opportunity versus current situation and assess whether it is worth considering.  The big question for me revolves around the idea of changing.  Do I feel like changing to this new thing or do I want to stay where am I doing what I’m doing?

The third thing I do is assess the risk.  If I were to take part in anything new in my life, what is the worst case scenario?  If this new thing were not to work out, what could happen negatively.  Could I end up homeless?  Could I lose my life?  Would I have to start over and rebuild?  The possibilities could be endless, but honestly there aren’t too many decisions that are truly life-and-death.  So for me, risk assessment has to do with security, safety and progress.  Will this new opportunity compromise the security of my family?  Will it put me or my family in harm’s way?   And will this new thing hinder or help our progress?

Fourth for me, I will bring these facts and thoughts back to Evelina and we will talk on a deeper level.  At this point the decision-making process becomes less objective and more subjective.

The last step is to ask myself if this new project “feels” right.  It is difficult to put into words what feeling right means.  It is a gut intuition.  If the decision doesn’t feel right then I run in the opposite direction.  If it does feel right AND I have gone through the process of due diligence then we move forward and consider saying “yes”.

Sometimes good opportunities happen at the wrong time and sometimes the timing is perfect.  I think the key is keeping your mind open to all possibilities.  Remember, there was a moment when Bill Gates could have said “No thanks, I’m not interested.”  I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to be the guy who says no to a possible life-changing opportunity!

Have a safe and happy Wednesday!
