The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”

Why We Need Adventure Packs

Action Time

wd oooHow many great ideas are destroyed before they have a chance to take root? How many are discarded by the neglect of time? Due to fear of failure or a lack of self-confidence? The time to wait is over and the time for action is here.  Taking action is THE ingredient that turns the perfect combination of raw materials into a masterpiece.  A life is defined by the actions one takes or in many cases the inaction.

I wanted to share a few of the things I have learned about grasping your life by the throat through action.  none of them are very difficult to do but they can be daunting. I continually have to remind myself about these things.

Welcome to My Oz

wizaThe Wizard of Oz has always been a classic, because of the message it teaches.   Yearly it is enjoyed by children of all ages, but because of the symbolic search, the characters embark on. The search for personal growth is one that I am very familiar, the ability to think, have a heart, maintain your courage and find a home.  I think we are all looking for the same things. Here are a few things I have learned on my trip through Oz.

love worth livingSometimes life seems to be full of things that are dichotomous to experience. Both bitter and sweet to the senses and often times we have to make a decision if they are worth it or not.

 Love is one of these experience in life. There are so many positive things to it but in the end you have to wonder is it really worth it?  Wouldn’t the time be better spent developing a talent or learning to fly a kite or something?

Can anyone really define their joy as one particular aspect of a day or even a life?

I certainly can’t so when I started to answer this question for today I had many thoughts about what gives me joy right at this moment and in the overall canvass of existence.

Jefferson Writing Challenge

by Jonathan Hilton

T shirt backIt has long been one of my long standing beliefs that people come into your life for a reason and you merely need to allow things to play out to find out why.   Sometimes they come in to stay for awhile, and some times they just pop in teach you something and then disappear on down the line.
