If we could go back in time

If we could go back in time to some point where we had made a critical decision that changed the path of our life. If we could just go back and change the decision we made so we could take  a different life path

Ideally, we could pick a point in time where we feel we may have made a wrong decision and if go back to a place in time where we could change that decision. That, in fact, could be a GAME CHANGER.

Remember to PLAN AHEAD

Image

PLANNING AHEAD

Image

Planning ahead for the next day, week, or even just for the next hour is very important.

Image

I try to make long range plans of what goals that I would like to reach for this year and next year.

Image

I believe that it is important to plan long range goals 2 years in advance,

Image

I will also have a list of what short range goals that I want to accomplish for the next day and for the next 2 weeks.

Image

I will include any  appointments and important places that I need to go to during the week, so that I can make progress in achieving my goals.

Climbing up the ladder of success

The pathway to success

Image

Climbing up the ladder of success

Image

It may not be an actual ladder, but more like stair steps, where one climbs up one step at a time.

Image

Each stair step climbed represents a separate goal on the pathway to success.

A moment of Inner Peace and Solitude

Image

A moment of Inner Peace and Solitude

Image

One fleeting moment of inner peace,

A brief glimpse of a world at peace with itself.

All is quiet now except for the chirping of a sparrow.

Far away from the ROAR of the city traffic,

away from the hustle and bustle of the big city.

All those the Father gives me will come to me,

and whoever comes to me I  will never drive away.”

Blessed by the BEST

Image

This article is about the book that I am writing called Blessed by the BEST and is dedicated to Brother Ed and the Long Beach RESCUE MISSION

Image

Brother Ed Robinson is a manager for the bed guests of the Long Beach Rescue Mission and is the man behind this book Blessed By the Best. I feel that I have been blessed by the best to have known someone like Brother Ed and I describe in detail how he enriched my life. I stayed at the mission as a bed guest from December 2013 until early April 2014. I looked forward to Brother Ed’s daily sermons which were held in the chapel at 5:30pm just before dinner time. His sermons provided us with guidance and the inspiration to look forward to another day. Brother Ed always had a smile on his face and an upbeat attitude on life even though he had been diagnosed with STAGE-1 bone cancer in January 2014. He often discussed his experiences of living on the street in South-Central Los Angeles before coming to the mission himself as a bed guest a few years ago. He spoke of his addiction with crack cocaine and his dependence on the Pusher-Man. His guidance reminds me of the lyrics in the song Amazing Grace “I was lost but now I’m found….I was blind but now I see” I thank Brother Ed and the staff of the Long Beach Rescue Mission for helping me to move forward in my life enabling me to see a much clearer path in front of me. This book Blessed by the Best details how I became homeless after traveling from Texas to southern California and shows how the three homeless shelters that I stayed in helped shape my life.

ImageThis book will show of my interaction with other homeless people who stayed at the shelters as well as those who slept out on the streets. I describe about the pros and cons of being homeless in Southern California as well as how I eventually made it back to the Rio Grande Valley in Texas to start a new life. If you would like to help me fund my book and be sure that it gets published . You can help by donating to my KICKSTARTER project account: I will have the link posted shortly. Thanks in advance for your cooperation to help make this book possible.  I am hoping that this book should be published sometime during June of this year.

I can also accept donations by PayPal,  sent to eastern.sea.star@gmail.com on the Paypal website.

music that has no boundaries

some music can transcend space and time.  It can seem as current today as 30-40 years after it was first released

 

Now That We’ve Found Love – Third World (1978)

This reggae  song seems just as relevant today as 36 years ago!

Gil Scott-Heron – Johannesburg (1974)

doesn’t seem possible that it was released 40 years ago!

The late great Bob Marley released  The Sun is Shining in 1974,  seems just as recent today as 40 years ago

Isaac Hayes – I Never Can Say Goodbye

a great SLOW JAM from 1972!
