Thoughts on Getting Well


Thoughts on Getting Well

I’m coming out of a one-year ordeal in dealing with my heart and having heart surgery. 

I have a choice in the thoughts I think about these past twelve months.  I could reflect on the inconvenience, the uncomfortableness, the bloated feelings, the shortness of breath and such.

I could dwell on those thoughts, you know.

But rather, I want to dwell on the good that has come from it all.  I breathe easier, I weigh less, I feel much better than one year ago.

I’m ahead of the game, and I choose to think about that. 

I have a better knowledge of foods to eat, an exercise plan, and time to execute that.  I have a work schedule that suits my body and condition. 

I’m better than I was twelve months ago.  And every week I get a little better. 

I’m healing, I’m being healed, and I thank God and I thank modern medicine and well-trained medical professionals. 

I’m in good condition for the condition I’m in.  It’s an attitude kind of thing.

Are you getting well?


This is what is

Destroying Illusions


Destroying Illusions


Oh my.  What have I opened? 

This idea takes some consideration, doesn’t it?  If we dare to get honest with ourselves, we have to deal with this.  Truth is truth, regardless of which side of the issue you are on. 

We love our illusions.  We love our own thoughts and ideas of how things work and how they should work.  But what if those idea are wrong?  What if the people we are following have it wrong and don’t care that they are leading us astray?

Lest you think I’m taking a political stance here, I’m not.  My intent is rather to say this: “Stop.  Take a deep breath.  Get a grip on reality and consider whether what we are following is truth, half-truth, reality or fantasy.”

Do you still believe in the magic rabbit’s foot?
Do you still search for four-leaf clovers?
Is your lucky sweater clean and still wearable?

What illusions are you holding to?

And why?

Really, really … just think about this whole concept of truth versus illusion.


This is what is
on my mind today.

Put It Into Words


Put It into Words

When we put our words together in the right way, we could move the world.

We could change a life.
We could make someone’s day.
We could inspire someone to a new level of greatness.
We could take the blinders off someone’s eyes.
We could extend a life.
We could be the catalyst for good in someone or something.

Oh my, another reminder of the power of the right word given at the right time.


This is what is
on my mind today.
