One Day at a Time…..

July 22, 2012

I’ve decided to start blogging .  I’ve never been good at this sort of thing, but like to think of it as a journal that I share with the world.  My thoughts, my dreams, my inspirations.  This is a journey I have decided to embark upon.  To better myself Physically, Mentally, and Spiritually.  Complete balance for the human soul.  What inspires me I will share here.  I am hoping by committing to this task I shall keep my self accountable for my shortcomings and whatever accomplishment I may achieve.  I use to say ‘Nothing ventured, Nothing gained”.  Let the adventure begin……..

It is not the critic who counts………

July 21, 2012

“It is not the critic who counts;

not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles,

or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena,

whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;

who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again,

because there is no effort without error and shortcoming;

but who does actually strive to do the deeds;

who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions;

who spends himself in a worthy cause;

who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement,

and who at the worst,

if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly,

so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

Theodore Roosevelt

Chief Tecumesh Poem

July 20, 2012

“So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.

Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.

When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself.

Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision. When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.”

Native American Shawnee Chief Tecumseh
