A Few Shots From The Heart

There’s not a thing I write which you don’t already know… it’s all born out of good old common sense. Yes, it’s that intangible one that holds the other five together. For me, it comes into focus when I consciously relax in a quiet moment to just simply… listen.

My life, like yours, is intense at times. Taking a moment as often as possible to decompress a little is sometimes easier said than done. Quite often, I can’t clear my thoughts enough to relax, but every once in a while it works out. I find the stillness of the moment… feel the calm as I hear God’s whisper.

God's Whisper

God’s Whisper

Within that moment, all the pieces seem to fit, and I just know everything’s okay. This ten minute vacation, if you will, leaves me both inspired and motivated as I reenter the chaos of the day. From this renewed perspective, I’m jazzed to write.

A quick word about my blog…

Although I really like the name Dad’s Wisdoms, it may come across a little less humbling than I would like for it to. The fact is… any wisdom I possess is a product of living through, and learning from, my abnormally high allotment of bad decisions, short comings, setbacks, fears, more bad decisions, and of course…undeserved blessings galore. From this concoction, I pour out my shots from the heart.

So… why the name Dad’s Wisdoms?

Early on, because of life’s circumstances, I was faced with the need to learn how to use the power of motivation to my benefit. This revelation was a game changer for me.

I believe, that through motivation, our love for living intensifies… which in turn awakens wisdom.
You see… I figure if I can find the words to motivate you somewhat… it may also serve to keep me on my toes as well. And on my toes is where I’m at my best… and happiest. Therefore, I’ll continue to listen and write… if for no one else but me.

It’s safe to say we all are enamored with the thought of being happy, healthy and fully engaged with life. It’s also safe to say most of us are smart enough to know what’s required of us to get there. But the sad fact remains that far too many of us aren’t motivated, or wise enough, to make it happen.

Hell, I’ve been guilty as charged many, many times. I believe it goes under the heading… I’m just not in the mood.
Get Started Now
This brings me to the underlying theme of every post in Dad’s Wisdoms.

Get Started Now!

These three words have the power to transform dreams to realities… sadness to joy… failures to successes… fear to confidence… you fill in the blanks… I could go on and on.

Without Getting Started… Nothing can happen! Nothing will happen! Nothing is going to happen! You my friend… have to Make It Happen!

Life is too short to wait, and much too rich, to miss.

Whatever it is you want to do with your life… it’s time.

Get started now!

I believe Mick and the boys say it best:
If you start me up, I’ll never stop… never stop, never, never, never stop!
Now… that’s what I’m talking about!

    GET STARTED NOW!! Best advice ever! I wish everyone could read this entry. And my other favorite phrase is: Without Getting Started… Nothing can happen! Nothing will happen! Nothing is going to happen! You my friend… have to Make It Happen!
    I don’t think I have anything else to add to this. So true, such a strong message!
    Thank you so very much for writing it down.
