Well, I have more days behind me than I probably have in front of me. I have been blogging for a couple of years, but only recently started my blog, YourSpiritMindandBody.com.
In the past I wrote whatever I was thinking about or feeling at the time. One day you might be reading one of my poems and another you might be smoking meat with me for the day.
As much as I enjoyed sharing some of those things on my old blog, I felt inspired to create a blog that spoke to things that are truly important and things I’m passionate about.
(Since I wore a younger man’s clothes), “I know, a totally plagiarized phrase, but I love the way it sounds”. I have been fascinated by how the mind works and the complexities of our personalities and how our experiences and thoughts affect the direction our lives take.
I have read so many books and listened to so many audios on self-improvement. I have read the biographies of some of our founding fathers, leaders of industry, and people like Napoleon Hill, Norman Vincent Peale and Tony Robbins.
I have considered with great fascination how some people coming from very poor or humble beginnings have been able to make a huge impact on society and even the world. While others who seemed to have everything going for them totally imploded, and threw their lives away.
I have done a lot of reading and study on the subject of the conscious and subconscious minds which has opened my mind to a whole new understanding of what makes us tick. It has helped me understand how powerful our thoughts and emotions really are, and how without gaining control over them we are like a ship on the sea without a rudder.
I have also spent many years reading and drinking in of the scriptures. I find that every time I read through the scriptures I learn more, gain a deeper understanding, and see things I never noticed before. I have also come to understand that a life apart from God is empty with only fleeting moments of happiness that are unsustainable.
I’ve never been an executive of a company, I haven’t written a best-selling book, “as of yet, anyway”.
I went to school for both Business and Computer Programming; and I ended up working construction and the at the front desk of a hotel.
I’ve done my fair share of stupid things in life, and I have done some pretty good things as well. I’ve had my ups and I’ve had my downs. I have never had everything I wanted, but I have always had everything I needed.
I’ve lived, I’ve loved and I’ve learned a lot of things. Some of the really important things I’ve learned are:
- The things that are truly important in life
- Don’t sweat the small stuff
- Self is not the focal point of the Universe
- It truly is better to give than receive
- To have a friend you must be a friend
- True beauty is found on the inside, and not the outside
- The ability to love is the most important key to a happy life
- Relationship with God cannot be compared with anything else in life
So, why did I create YourSpiritMindandBody.com?
I created it to take my three greatest passions; my love for God, my love of inspiring and encouraging other, and my love of writing; and share them with the world.
I am not a psychologist, psychiatrist or counselor, so please do not consider this “professional advice”. I do however feel inspired and lead to write the things I do, and pray that you find and take away some helpful nuggets from them.
May God bless your life as He has been blessing mine!
