The awesomely destructive force of a tornado will quickly remind us of what is really important;and, how precious life and relationships can be gone in less than a moments notice.
We go through life stressed about things that are not important and put those things that matter on the bottom of the things to do list. Let us learn from the horrific tragedy in Oklahoma and grab our families and friends and forgive an heal wounds that are old.
Today’s society is filled with man made disasters and terrorism; we really don’t know where the next tragedy is coming from— we just know it is coming. Be prepared to loose yourself from some of the needless material comforts we have grown to overly love and devilishly desire; and, turn our attention and focus on the precious moments we have and maximize the time we have, whether it be 80 years or 80 minutes, beloved.
The Bottom Line: appreciate the moment by understanding what is really important. And pray for our friends in OK and pray they will be OK!
Blessings and Prayers

One cannot abandon their gift just because it is not appreciated or applauded.

Filth lives in the dirt. Clean house, clean car, clean heart. Clean it up and keep it clean.

You would not call a student dumb for going to school and learning from a teacher. When we see an older person go back to school to get an education because they blew it the first time, we applaud them because we know how hard it is and the courage it took for them to start back.
Then why do we call people who go see a therapist crazy. Therapy is just another form of learning. A life coach to help equip you through life challenges. Mental Health should learn from schools. Lets start early and we can reduce some preventable problems.
Just as stupid as it would be to call someone dumb for going to school, it is silly to call someone crazy for seeing a therapist. In fact, by going to school it makes you smart. And, by going to therapy it makes you more sane.
Bottom Line: If crazy is the term we will use, then only crazy people do not have a mental health practitioner to see on a regular basis.

To climb steep hills requires a slow pace at first. — William Shakespeare
To run a marathon, one may practice by doing sprints. However, if you begin your race in that way– you are destined for failure.
In this case, failure is the inability to maximize your potential. If we used this as the new definition, many people would find themselves unable to brag on what they did accomplish. If one can get an A in a class, a B is not something to brag about or be proud of, my friend. Just as school has markers, we have other real markers in life, but sadly we are content if we have more than others or more than what we thought we would initially get.
In this case, it is okay to get greedy. DOuble up on the crap table of life and go beyond what you even chartered or imagined. Success can never truly be measured until you are dead. The question becomes, Did I do enough with what I was given?

Unmotivated people make excuses why it never happened
Unmotivated people have plenty of time to waste
Unmotivated people live inside the box
Unmotivated people are content with 4th place
How does one let a glimmer of hope
fade away and not fight when it is choked
Gasping for air, while dreams and ideas fade to black
the unmotivated silently watches and placidly sits back
Controlled by an external locus of control
They ride shotgun just happy to be in the front
Content to be invisible in the middle of the bunch
Hope is not lost, dedication and inspiration evolves into motivation
Most people are unmotivated because they chase a dream not their own
Motivation can not be to please others, even those in your own home
Motivation can be external, but if the internal motivation is not larger
the unmotivated may achieve, but the tracking on that road will be harder
Unmotivation can not live long with the motivated
Opposites attract but do not last.
Unmotivation lives on the peripheral of greatness
And dies in the valley of unfilled promise.
Not alone, but along with other underachievers.
