Lead with Your Heart; Never Slow Down

“Four steps to achievement: Plan purposefully. Prepare prayerfully.  Proceed positively. Pursue persistently.”  - William A. Ward

I am trying to live my life with the quote of William Ward deeply seeded in my consciousness. I allow myself to participate in activities because I believe that the mind works better when it is stimulated in many different areas. I go out fishing from time to time because I feel that I freely think when I am out on the water. I am planning to keep up with my life and try to remain positive.

I know that there is a whole segment of the population who has sustained brain injuries and they are looking to proceed forward with their lives. It’s okay to be scared, but you have to continue moving forward. This year I am trying to remain active in the colder weather and I am doing a good job. Just because the weather gets colder does not mean that your activities in your life need to slow down.

Every activity that you take part in should serve to aid you as you plan your days ahead. I enjoy people and I like to do things with people. I greatly enjoy fishing in the colder weather. I will include a picture from my most recent trip. When you are out on the water you are able to momentarily step away from your responsibilities and truly allow yourself to enjoy the wind and the water. I reflect a great deal when I am out fishing and there is plenty of time to allow your mind to wander and enjoy. I feel that I am far more prepared to tackle my work when I have a good balance amongst my days. I am taking part in many activities and I feel better able to do my job when I have all of my experiences to share. A big part of who we all are is a sum of our experiences. 

I went to a charity function last night to support the Cerebral Palsy Foundation. It is important to always remember that somebody has it worse off. We all have our challenges and we all have to be there to support one another. I am a huge proponent of getting involved with local charities and opening your heart up to other people.

We were all put on this earth to help one another. My nephew has a huge heart and he and his sister are both going to do great things for people. I am excited to see how they both develop and where they will go in life.

I thank you very much for reading and would love to read any comments that you may have.
