    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...

    Things fall apart to make the right things fall

    in place. At times I want to throw my hands up and give up, but god gives me the strength to stay strong. As bad as things are at this point, I finally got some great things happening :) I went out of my comfort zone and my future will thank me for that!

    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...

    There Are No Coincidences

    I was getting ready for a teaching session.

    Got to work early so that I have enough time to go through my .ppt slides and match the sequence with my handouts. I wanted to have it all sorted and in my head, so that I would coordinate my lesson smoothly. In the back of my mind, however, I sensed that I was preoccupied...

    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...

    You asked, "When did you find yourself?

    " And I simply said, "When somebody loved me." Until now, I didn't realize how true that was. Thinking back, I wasn't afraid of loving him or being with him. No, I was afraid of losing him when I let myself go, when he took a good look and saw the real me. That I wasn't what...

    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...

    I believe that things happen
