Sometimes you just gotta do what you’ve gotta do! For me it’s taking a few days of my personal leave to focus on administrative deliverables. Folks always think they want to grow and to succeed. They feel in their hearts that they should be in a position of influence and authority. Oftentimes this is only words that seem to sink into the abiss of inaction. This is what my first day of vacation looks like…
For those who have achieved any level of success, you already know all too well that you have to be prepared to “invest” what and when many simply aren’t willing to invest. You see, spending time and investing time aren’t the same thing. One is gone and often doesn’t have a tangeable or risidual benefit (spending time). When you “invest” time, it’s done with care and consideration always weighing the risks against the potential earnings.
These are strategic decisions and not whimsical. They are based on foresight and forethought, imbedded in experience, and emerged in purpose. For me, there are still yet soooooooo much to accomplish and I’m still passionately eager to cease opportunities to build my dynasty….
My current situation on a Friday night. Would have been good to have company…
Judge me!!! I don’t care… I’m headed home soon enough!
I love fried rice…
Plain rice is ok and there are times when it’s all you have. But I love rice with a little pizzas! So here you have brown and black rice seasoned well with fresh herbs, garlic, some habanero peppers (I like it spicy), and spices tossed with fresh shredded carrots, green onions, chopped sweet onions, fresh garlic, along with green, orange, and red bell peppers. Mmmmmmm…. So delish!
But you know such is my life… It’s full of diversities, complexities, simplicities, and a multitude of differences. It’s colorful and I love color. It’s good to my palet and flavorfully impacts all my senses. My life isn’t just a meal it’s an entire experiences shaped in the ambiance of tolerance, friendship, and love. You see it’s a good life because it’s purposely designed to be so by my every , thought, desire, and most importantly, my decisions. I wanna taste this life in all its wonderous change and experience. I’m purposed to uncover all the possible joys to be taken, eaten, and enjoyed as nourishment for my growth.
Guess what, I wanna take all of you along with me… Wanna go? Wanna indulge? Wanna taste, touch, smell, and see? I promise that you won’t be disappointed and dull moments will be rare.
Meet me at the top of the rainbow… I’ll be there lightly packed and ready to depart.
Well I’m on my wa again… I struggled with crossing my legs because of my knee surgery. It was horrible trying to sit normal and take this dang pic. Here is my first one which is my normal pic. The problem is that you can see the knee sleeve through my slacks and it’s apparent that the knee to leg ratio is way off.
So I decided to cross the other way and it was equally as painful. Uhhhg!!! But I managed to get my travel pic so in happy now… So here it is…
Don’t judge me… I’m just the guy that trying his best to “Make Good Donuts”!
So was gonna write something super clever, but for her no words can be adequately descriptive. So basically today I stopped by to drop off a few things and she was in super great spirits with her super cute yellow dress. What you cant see is the super cute yellow flower bow holding her pony tail.
Mama, I love you soooo much!! You’ve done so much, live through so much, helped so many, prayed continuously, supported without ceasing, challenged us allot, listened with attentive ears, and did I mention that you love so many.
You are the most amazing woman I know… Muah!
I find it very frustrating that I have never ever ever been invited to a single Halloween party ever!!!! I mean NEVER!!!
What’s up with that? Am I not worthy? I like to party too. Really… So maybe, just maybe this will be my year. So I’ll just sit here and wait for my invite.
Another insightful dialogue with my teenage daughter.
So yeah… Flooding everywhere and a major rain weather event going on in Columbia, SC. My hotel ceiling is leaking…
It looks like this weather is gonna be around for the next 10-12 hrs…
The news is reporting as if it’s the end of the world. I mean really, I’m from Miami. We deal with storms all the time. And yes even in Miami, folks still try to drive through high flood waters… Duh!!!
But me… I love bad weather. It kind of does something to me. Lol… That’s all I’m going to say about that! So I left the hotel and thanks goodness that Starbucks is open.
So kudos to Starbucks except that the barista wrote my name as “Jonathan” instead of “Johnnie”. Man I hate that!!! It’s really a pet peeve of mine. Anyway, I’m chilaxing and enjoying my headache free rainy morning”double smoked bacon & cheddar” breakfast sandwich and “grande soy caramel latte” at Starbucks while chatting on FB & Twitter and people watching.
It’s gonna be a good day!
I enjoy bad weather but….
Serious migraine today…. I’m gonna put on my Superman britches and push through the day.
I’m built for this…
