Who Will Rescue Me? I Will!!!

We’re our own dragons as well as our own heroes, and we have to rescue ourselves from ourselves.

— Tom Robbins

If it’s going to be, it’s up to me.

Today is the first day of the rest of my life, but no worries, so is tomorrow.

As I’ve mentioned in the past few blogs, I’ve been listening to (via Audible) [amazon-product text=”The Gifts of Imperfection” type=”text”]159285849X[/amazon-product] by Brené Brown.  While I’m not one for hero worship, this is a woman who works every day to be present and authentic.  She is a one woman army working towards helping anyone who is interested in living a wholehearted life.

The term “wholehearted living” is a lot scarier than it sounds.  For one thing, it means Continue reading » Who Will Rescue Me? I Will!!!

If you’re in need of a rescue these delightfully painted wooden bollards won’t be much help! (But these guys and gal might be…)

I’d like to think that I’m brave.
That’s a really wonderful personality trait to have.
I would love to think I’m the type of person to go rescue someone.

— Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

I recently watched a news report about the dangerous riptides that plague our beaches. To demonstrate the risk, one intrepid journalist swam into a rip current and was quickly swept out to sea. The voice-over reporter explained Continue reading » Raise One Arm

In his latest book, Joel Osteen tells of a flight to India that he took with his father.  Doing missionary work in India was one of Osteen’s father’s joys in life.  Sure, he liked saving souls here, but he really loved India.  Every year, the Osteen family would go on mission trips to India.  One year, 13 hours into a 15 hour flight, they encountered the worst Continue reading » 10 Minutes of Turbulence

Life is Good

What a Difference a Day Makes

I like today – how about you?

If today was half as good as tomorrow is supposed to be,
it would probably be twice as good as yesterday was.

— Norman Ralph Augustine

Today I’m energetic and effective and efficient.  It feels exceptional.  Yesterday I was disjointed, dodging and discouraged.  It felt dreadful.

But what really tickles me today is how much I like this sense of being present and accountable.  What happened overnight to effect this change?  Two things come to mind: technology and slipping back into, or at least close to, my comfort zone.

You see, the technology I’ve depended on has been secretly failing, losing one little capability at Continue reading » What a Difference a Day Makes

Friends are born, not made.

Last Wednesday, my friend, Teri, was run over by a car – literally.  It was, in the classic definition of the word, an accident.  The driver and the victim knew each other.  They live just down the street from each other.  Part of the cause of the accident was assuming and the other part was hurry.

The car was parked in the driveway.  Teri saw that her neighbor was in the car, the engine was on and she saw the driver check behind her.  Teri assumed that the driver saw her and that the driver wouldn’t pull out quickly, so she walked behind the car.

The driver was in a hurry.  She looked behind her, saw nothing in her path and gunned the engine – she was running late.  POW!!  Teri was Continue reading » Rescued by an Instant Support System – Just Add Trouble
