Enjoy Time to Enjoy

Enjoy Time to Enjoy

We take the time to “do” things all the time. Most of us either forgot or never knew that the word “enjoy” can be used in place of many action verbs. A politician can “enjoy” time in office just how I can “enjoy” a cup of coffee. Is life something we “live” or something we “enjoy”?

That is what time off is for—enjoyment. It’s not just about resting from what we “do” day in and out. Time off can reinforce our perspective that life isn’t just for living, but enjoying. It is an opportunity to practice how to enjoy.  · · · →

Patience Is Your Evidence

Patience Is Your Evidence

We are indicted or acquitted by society, not for evidence or truth, but for our reactions. A calm, upbeat answer will get the most dangerous people off the hook with friends and enemies alike. In many ways, its unfair—or is it?

Society falls apart when the masses go hysterical over petty matters. We get polarized and divided over non-essentials and non-issues and things that really don’t matter. That is a real threat to society. So, proving to not go hysterical when facing the heat makes society like you. It’s not always good, but it’s a reality you can muster.  · · · →

Nacho Sauce

Nacho sauce makes nachos boss.
What do yours wear so they never get lost?

Whatever you toss with your macho bits,
it’s not your loss how my nacho sits.

Take them as creamy, sort them all nice,
cook them up steamy, or even with rice!

Eat them in Italy, or in a hickory,
or in a slippery, flickery wok!

Nachos with salsa are saucy and glossy,
cheesy and gleamy feel flossy and outright naughty!

Don’t show a care what your nachos must wear,
rated or baited or eat them plain naked!

Cilantro avocado or ranch El Dorado,
freshly or oily or smeared guacamole!

Olives, onions—red, green, black, or white,
no telling what makes your nacho delight.

Drape them with beans or beef that’s not lean,
jalapeños that scream and then make you dream.

Cheddar or mozz, or Swiss if you’re bold,
Colby or Jack, or both if you’re told.

Microwave’s easy, just turn them each minute,
or bake them ‘til golden in brick ovens molten.  · · · →

Head Always Up

Head Always Up

Lasting growth can’t happen without a generator. To progress, you must maintain a positive posture in the face of the highest rejection, and then keep going. When your happiness depends on results, your results will spiral. Actually, your results depend on your happiness, so you must keep your happiness independent of results.

This wisdom goes back to Genesis, when God gave the first business advice. He told Cain that if you do well, your work will be accepted, but if not, be careful because sin is waiting to catch you. That’s why the successful keep their heads up no matter what.  · · · →
