Pat Surface (one of my favorite singer/ songwriters) wrote a song called Changes. The chorus of
the song begins "There's going to be changes and rearranges". It reminds of a temporary change
I had to make this week.
I had to make the change to a trac phone as my  cell phone is getting fixed. Although I like to
think that I can easily adapt to anything life throws my way, I learned that is not always the case.
The first few days were very hard and I wasn't doing well. I am doing better and have accepted
this temporary change in my life.
A change can make your life better! Really? Really!
Life is all about changes. You have the power to change:

Your career path!

Your situation!

Your Attitude!

Be the Change! Just A Thought!

Star Wars or Star Trek? As long as the science fiction genre continues, there will be this on-going debate.
You may enjoy watching the adventures of Luke and Leia  or anticipating the new Star Trek series.
There are the purists who will support one side or  the other.
There are a growing number of fans who wonder why they have make a choice.

There may be different characters with unique story lines as different as they are.

There is a common theme emerging:


HOPE for a better life.

HOPE in the midst of present circumstances.

HOPE for a brighter future.

Summer is a great time for reunions. There are class reunions, family reunions, weddings, etc. Being raised in a small family and marrying into a large family I have begun to appreciate these gatherings. I am truly blessed
with family and have enjoyed socializing with these people, especially when I make the effort to accept them
for who they are. In "A Very Brady Christmas" all the Brady children come home with their families, friends, and problems. Mike is making a speech about their gathering emphasizing that "we are here and we are family".
His sentiment goes beyond that gathering highlighting the point that "family" are those that will always be there for you! On your journey, remember that those people who are always there for you are your '"family".

Changes rearranges

One of my favorite lines from a Pat Surface song is "there are going to be changes and rearranges" which
is exactly the direction this blog is taking. One of my pet peeves is going to a website or blog and finding it
is "under construction". This blog will just steadily improve and will be a place of inspiration on your journey. Remember "Change" (on your journey) isn't always bad. Time to enjoy your journey!

I often wonder what the future holds for me, reflecting on the past year and looking to the future. I am sure some people maybe be a little cautious or nervous based on what we have heard about the Mayan calendar. Who can forget Y2K? As you travel on your journey, what are you reflecting on and looking forward to? Don't let the external factors change your internal disposition! Journey on!

Time Flies!

As I look out the window, I have realized that I haven't blogged for awhile so here goes. My journey has been very busy and caused me to look at how I was spending my time.I have decided to combine all my blogs which may be great news for you.
Some entries may include items about my Catholic faith, music and musicals, books, movies, etc. You get the point. I hope you evaluate how you spend your time on your journey.
 One of my favorite songs is by a group called Small Potatoes. The song is Time Flies. I hope you give a listen.

Change ahead!

Twice a year, I evaluate my life and look at the things that need to be changed. As students return the classroom, I examine my own life lessons, setting goals and priorities. Personally, some of these changes will be difficult, but most will be fairly easy. For my readers (which I am grateful for), I will be doing more blogging. My changes include the realms of "spiritual, physical, emotional, financial and creative". This blog will also include audio content on occasion, which will allow you to listen and not always have to read.
 In my life, the times I've noticed that my world becomes stagnant or depressing, I have learned it is because I have not been using my "creativity".  I am very excited about these changes and look forward to inspiring you on your journey. My challenge: If your life is stagnant or depressing, a better life is only a "change " away. It might not be easy. It might take all your strength. It might challenge you in ways you never thought possible. It will be worth it. Don't complain about your circumstances, change them. On your journey there will be many changes. Be the Change!
