we rise towards the sun
leaving the bleak behind us
The daily adventures of owning a pet monkey. 🙂
“August! You better get down here!”
“Why won’t you listen to me?”
“You sure are a cheeky monkey!”

our allotted time
in the moments
when we expand into them
opt for significance
Expand into your uncomfortable zone.
Relish the anguish.
Capture your strength.
Propel into your future.
Just because you dared.
I’d like to rub elbows with as many determined experiences as my life can possibly contain.
There will likely be uninvited events, surely wounding me.
But sandwiched in between, moments of soothing and reflective downtime.
Bring it on, life.
I’ve never been more prepared.
My process is to Read, Think and Write. You might say it’s quite simplistic, but you’d be wrong.
The only effortless part of the process is reading. It’s a joy to immerse myself in others’ thoughts, get to know them through their words. And they spur me on towards my musings about things. Their things. They create an interest in me I need to discover further and intensely.
I think diligently. Mull their things over inside my brain and insides. What does it feel like to them, what does it feel like to me? What do I think about that as it presents to the world? Would I do/feel different or do I agree? Does it propel me into taking the next step to evaluate it on paper? Is it a stepping stone, and does it catapult me into furthering my own greatness? These questions, this wrapping myself up in their writing allows me to discover another level of myself.
I am but the person who takes the intentional influence and runs with it. Every thought gives me new reasons to soar with the eagles.
Read… Think… Write… That’s living.
And that’s succeeding in my book.
