Some were never so lucky to make it to 40. As for others 40 was only halfway. Although I am not much into the actual number of years I have been alive but I do have that feeling of being blessed as I turn 40.

I remember being 12 years old mowing yards with my grandpa and aunt wondering what I’d be doing at their age. I was always curious about what the future had in store for me when I was a kid. I never really was much to plan for anything and have taken the approach in life as more of an experience.

Reflecting back over the years people tend to think of the different choices they could have made and the different outcomes those choices would have produced. I truly believe the choices I have made have lead me to be who I am today. I have experienced a life only unique to myself.

If you have been part of my journey in anyway over the last 40 years I’d like the opportunity to say thank you. I have so many memories and look forward to making so many more.

Life is a blessing we only experience once so go out and live.

Random thought

Teach children to love one another by showing love to one another. Let them love. Children follow the examples set. The only way to change our future is through changing the way we teach our futures. Let’s be better by setting the example. We each have the ability to make a better future for our children but we have to start with making ourselves better.

Just a thought

Expect failures to happpen through out life.

Never accept the failures but use them to learn from and prevent them from happening again.

We didn’t start walking before we learned to crawl. We didn’t didn’t start walking before we experienced a few falls.

Build in the expectation of failure and use those situations as tools to build off of and grow.
