I’m going to change the world! Yeah you heard me, I am going to change the world. I am going to do so by changing my small part of it as I work to improve, rebuild, strengthen and live a better life, for by doing so I can and will inspire others to do so. My world affects theirs, thus change is a chain reaction.
Six degrees of separation, a theory that everyone in the entire world is connected through just six people you know. Imagine if you inspire just six people a day, that would be 180 people in a month. Now imagine that, for that same month, those six people did the same thing and each inspire six people they knew and then those six did the same and so on…just for one month. In ten days that is over ten million people, assuming we can keep the chain reaction going.
Voting and politics aren’t going to change the world. We’re too busy arguing who has the right platform.
Social and welfare programs aren’t going to change the world. We have lots of these already in place and yet the problems increase.
Taxes and money aren’t going to change the world. We’re too busy spending it wrong and it’s never enough for when we spend it right!
War and conquest aren’t going to change the world. Why do we think senseless killing of other nations is going to improve or change anything?
Religion isn’t going to change the world. We’re too busy arguing who’s is right.
We’ve been trying all these things for centuries and the result is the same, a world in turmoil. Nothing changes. True change is within you. Only when a person changes and inspires others to do the same, only then will we see the world change.
I vote for a better world. I will support a cause that truly helps someone better themselves. My money and resources will go to bettering my life and those around me when I can. I will fight against injustice and oppression. Humanity and kindness to others is my religion. It’s time for a chain reaction!

The day will come when humanity will make its last stand. The air raid sirens will wail one last time and then in a brief moment, it will all be over. What will we leave behind?
When the last fire goes out, when the smoke clears, when the dust settles, and the last brick falls, what will be left to remember us by? What testament will be left to tell our story? What legacy will be left as our final message to whoever finds it? Will our story even be worth preserving? How will we be remembered?
I tell you now, this is our last stand! If we fail to change course then I fear the day will come when you will hear the sirens wail, a loud rumble in the sky followed by a bright flash and then… nothing! As yourself: How will you remember me? What is my legacy to those that follow?

When America was founded our founding fathers created various documents one of which is the Declaration of Independence! This document was in itself a declaration of war, a drawing of the line in the sand that states we have had enough! Enough of the government being in our business, enough of being over taxed, enough of limited or no freedom, enough of a specific religion being forced upon us and this was in 1776!
It is therefore my duty as an American to say I have had enough. I hereby state my own Declaration of Independence and therefore remove myself from the Republican/Democrat train wreck and proceed to seek out other, better choices.
I have had enough and draw the line in the sand. Starting this November I will go into the voting booth and start a revolution of real change as I vote for “Other”. The tea is going into the harbor!
You can’t have different voting for the same! At some point you have to say enough and make change really happen. It starts with you!
THINK DIFFERENT…I DARE YOU!
True revolution does not require weapons of war or destruction, but a change in precepts to seek out justice in the unjust and to bring about that which is right from all that is wrong. To bring about true ideals that balance lives of those who live in said nation with values of fairness, justice and wisdom.
True revolution begins in ones heart as the soul wearies of unjust acts by those in power and seeks to correct the destructive course of the nation of which they reside to bring about true peace and prosperity.
True revolution comes when one chooses to rise up and say NO MORE, that this has gone on long enough! When one desires hope for humanity in an inhumane world so inasmuch that one will stand even when at their weakest to bring strength to others just as weak and guidance to those lost of heart and hope.
True revolution begins with the spoken word or the written lines of ideals, hopes, and dreams of those who wish to bring about change, true change.
True revolution begins when we elect true leaders that support the ideals of fairness, justice, hope and the dreams of the nation of which they are to serve.
I now stand and draw the line that now is the time to start this revolution to change the direction of which we are headed. Election day is coming, stand your ground, bridge the gap, and stop letting those in power cross the line.
True revolution begins when we finally decide we want change and work as one nation to do just that. No more racial, political nor religious divides!
We are one or we are none!

I don’t choose a life, I live one. Each day I see an opportunity to not only make a difference in the lives of others, but in my own life.
Each day I look for the chance to do something unplanned and off the wall. Sometimes others surprise me, sometimes I surprise myself. I will plan something, but am ready for those plans to change at a moments notice.
I live my life like the wind at times. While I stay grounded and plan for things that need planning, I am not afraid to change other plans as I go and do something far greater than I originally expected.
In the midst of my fears, anxiety and depression there is a tremendous amount of discovery and courage that has allowed me to face all of my fears and worries. Even being terrified of water, yet there I am body surfing in the Gulf. The fear of not living is the worst one of all and that fear I will defeat.
I live my life, I find my own path and if no path is set, I make one.
I am a leaf in the wind and never know where I will land next!
People come into our lives for a reason, sometimes we don’t even really understand why. My heart is that of a free spirit and wanderer, I have had many come into my life, some have stayed and some have moved on or maybe I moved on.
I have had a few relationships in my life and now being single, I see that they all had meaning and added something to my life, and I hope I added something to theirs as well.
I am a hard person to figure out at times and though my light shines, it shines alone in the dark. But I hope that whatever light I shine it will show someone the way.
I feel everything deeply and not everyone can understand or appreciate that. I see things differently as well and not everyone has or understands my vision. What I see and feel ties into that which I do, my writing, philosophizing and sharing whatever thoughts or stories as they come to me.
There is much I need to do and it requires me to be alone at times to focus. I am alone, but not really lonely as I have many in my life that touch my heart daily. Many of you have included me into your lives as well and it has been appreciated and I have enjoyed my time with you.
Now I must journey this path before me alone in heart, thought and soul, but that which I do will be shared with all and whatever message I am meant to deliver will be there for you to see.
I am reaching deeper into my heart and finding that which has been lost for so long…me. Dormant skills have come to the surface and awakened once again and my life is becoming more fulfilling as I journey forward with all that I feel I need to do.
Maybe one day one will see the light who is meant to follow it and come, but today I shine brightly and live as I feel I should.
I may journey alone, but I am not alone in my journey.
What makes you happy, do that.
What brings adventure to your life, do that.
What heals your heart, do that.
What brings peace to your soul, do that.
But be warned, you can’t have happiness without sorrow, you can’t have adventure without risk, you can’t have healing without pain, and you can’t have peace without turmoil.
But still, do that for it is worth all you experience to get there.

No one is ever lost, we are all on our own journey. Don’t judge someone’s journey just because they’re not going your way or the path you think they should follow.
Most people find their path in life, I make my own. I don’t follow established routes in life, I create my own journey and chose my own direction.
If there is no path in the direction I am going, there soon will be!
Don’t judge my life or journey until you look at your own journey. Look at your life first and make sure you’re above reproach and not guilty of the same thing you judge me for.
I bounced around from one job to another before finding the one I have now and was judged my someone who had just as many jobs in the time I knew them here and they quit those jobs for pretty much the same reason I did.
I don’t follow the crowd, that is for sheep and we know what happens to them in the end. Even now I am making my own path. following my own direction and creating a wonderful life for myself.
The journey continues…follow me if you dare!
Seventeen days into 2017 and am hit with sudden and unexpected changes in my life. Just found out today that the park I live in is going on the market to be sold. Not sure at this time what will happen, but for now I plan to stay until I find the need to move. Some of my life has changed in the past few weeks, some good, some bad, but in the end I do like I do when I work security, I just roll with whatever is happening and take it a moment at a time.
If I had the money or the financing I would buy this place in a heartbeat.
2015 saw a major change in my life as I began counseling and went through a breakup, 2016 saw me rise up and 2017 is challenging me to stay afloat and that I will. I refuse to sink this time, I’ve fought too hard to get to this point. I few bad days, a few bad changes, does not mean a bad year.
I will stand my ground!
My life has always been like clay, buried deep in muck, all polluted and formless, but over time I find my life cleaning up and the dirt and pollution that affected me wash away.
Clay when pulled from the ground, processed and cleaned, can then be sued to make many things and can take many forms. It’s all up to the artist and how he sees to form and mold it.
The clay is my life and I mold it, form it and process as I want to see it become. Each day a little more forms and the life I am building slowly starts to appear. I decide the shape and form of what my life will take.
I am the artist and my life is the masterpiece that I create!
