    Wow, How Things Change From One Minute To The Next.

    I wrote on here on April 23 about my wife having an affair and how it has completely turned my life upside down.  Today, a friend I have not seen since I had come home on leave while in the military contacted me.  The feeling I had when she told me who she was is just...

    Find The Reasoning.

    There have been so many negative things that happened in my life that actually turned out to be great. I believe things happen for a reason. If something bad happens to you, then you learn to appreciate everything else a little more. I always try to see the meaning and...

    Sometimes we have an experience

    that we don’t understand, but if we look deeply, or wait long enough, a reason for that experience will usually reveal itself. All the events in our lives lead to other events, and all that we have manifested in this present moment is the result of past events and experiences...

    The strangest thing happened today.

    .. I thought I should tackle a task on my to-do list. After doing an online search, I found a notebook that seemed like a suitable buy and checked where I could do a hands-on inspection in a city store. After noting the route and opening times, I set off on a pretty long trek...
