What if today is really tomorrow and tomorrow is really yesterday? Or maybe yesterday was really today? We spend so much time regretting what we did yesterday and worrying about what we will do tomorrow that in the confusion we often forget all about what is happening in the present.

Impacting Others Along The Way
I had a friend say to me the other day “I don’t know what my legacy will be? How I will be remembered when I am gone?” Most of us wonder about the same thing. Why are we put here on this earth? It is not just about having your name on a building or having viral videos or posts on the internet or sending rockets to the moon, To me it is about in how you interact with and have an impact on the people around you. Your legacy can be found in the impact you made by reaching out to others even just one other person because if you impact that person’s life for the better it can have a cascading effect.
I would like to share some of my experiences in mentoring and reaching out to others and how it comes back to you in ways you never would have dreamed of thereby enriching your own life as well. By sharing those experiences we continue to enrich each other’s lives and inspire others to do the same.

How many people know someone who has died from lung cancer or blessedly made it through… Read More
When I Think of Home . . .
Home for the holidays has many meanings to many people. Thanksgiving and Christmas are the holidays we most associate with that expression and with both fast approaching many of us are thinking of what that means to us. These lyrics of the song “Home” from the movie “The Wiz” say it all – “When I think of home, I think… Read More
Happy Veteran’s Day “After”
I intentionally waited until the day after Veterans Day to add this post. Like with many celebrations – on the day of the holiday we remember with ceremonies, parades and speeches. But afterwards, the sun sets, we all go home or change the channel and move on to the next celebration. Our first responders, members of the military and even… Read More
Thoughts, Words, Actions, Habits, Character and Destiny
“Watch your thoughts, they become your words. Watch your words, they become your actions. Watch your actions, they become your habits. Watch your habits, they become your character. Watch your character, it becomes your destiny.” Dr. Freeman A. Hrabowski Sometimes we never know just who will come into our lives and play a huge part in who we become. We… Read More
