    Transfiguration

    I look at that word in the title, transfiguration, and what do i see? I see the ability for someone to do something better. I was never told I was the prettiest guy, or the smartest, the skinniest, the most talented, and most of all I was never the most exciting guy to be around...

    One Man Army

    It has been proven many times in the course of human history, that one man can make a difference. However, it has been proven both positively, and negativily. Dr. Martin Luther King J.R., he was just one man, but that was all it took to make a difference. Thanks to that one man...

    Just One..

    It only takes one person to completely change someone's life. One person, one moment, can make the biggest difference. They have the power to turn everything around. Inspiration is a very strong thing.

    One Of The Things I Love Most About My Job

    Because I'm Doing It

    Lighthouse

    In pitch darkness a single candle can be seen for miles.  A single, simple act of kindness can change the world for someone.  We never know how far our kindnesses reach, how far our light is seen.  Be a lighthouse.

    Teaching The Dance By Example

    When I first started working for my Dad last summer it was during the busiest part of the season for him. He owns a ready mix/ precast/ rental business and when spring hits he's busy until the weather turns in the fall. He offered me a job because I needed it after I told my ex I...

    In Themselves Especially

    Does it really matter beyond yourself? It shouldn't, don't you agree? For some of us, the greatest difference we can make is within ourselves first, only then can we look to make a difference outside of our own little world.

    Because They Can!

    Anyone and everyone can make a difference, but one person needs to start. This world could be an amazing place, if only one person had the balls to stand out and be different. It only takes one person. But would you do it?

    All It Takes

    It really only takes one person with an idea for change to make a difference. That one person coming up with an idea, and then doing what they can and getting the help they need to make it happen is all that is needed. Small changes or big, it all starts with one person. A lot of...

    It does not matter if you are sad, lonely, happy, excited, etc...it only takes one person with a single comment to turn that emotion around. No matter how bad of a morning I have had I always walk into my job with a smile and say good morning to everyone I see. Nobody else needs...

    A Single Tree In The Meadow

    Remember, You're Never Alone

    It's been said; we are the sum total of our life experiences.  At times, It may be easy to let the negatives outweigh the positives, but I'm sure all of us can point to certain people in our lives who made a positive difference, and no list of wrongs...
