The Pool Hall

It’s always interesting to look back at the path that we have gone on to get where we currently are. Often times, it is not the same road that we thought that we would take. It changes course on us frequently, sometimes by our own design and sometimes because of changes going on around us. Continue reading “The Pool Hall”

War of Change

Every person will make frequent changes over the course of their lives, hopefully for the better of both themselves and their social surroundings. This is the way of life. We learn and we change to adapt to our surroundings and then we affect our surroundings based upon the changes that we make. This, in turn, becomes the catalyst for someone else’s change and the process goes on forever. People changing people changing people.  Continue reading “War of Change”

The Best Return on Your Money

I had a friend once who was so suspicious of the banking system that he wouldn’t even take out a checking account let alone set up any kind of savings. He literally kept all of his cash in a jar at his house. I would criticize him at the time about needing to put his money in the bank but the more I think about it, it wouldn’t really matter.

Those jobs were fine. They paid the bills. I definitely was not passionate about them. Continue reading “Start Winning”

A healthier me…. and you.

I have had so many moments in my life (many of them after I got married) where I have decided that I was going to make some changes that I have lost count. Change can be a good thing right? As long as it is a change that is beneficial. Why, then, is it so hard for me to make changes?

Is it too hard? Am I too weak?

Some changes come easy for me. The decision to move was an easy change to make because I wanted to move. The decision to have children (though I was still a little reluctant about the timing) was an easy one to make because I have always wanted to have a family. The decision to marry Elisa was a no-brainer. Spend five minutes around her and you will understand completely.
