The Intent of This Blog

This blog is intended to be a tool for the growth of whoever wants to use it. It is a daily journal intended to help us be more introspective. Every day I will do my best to supply a motivational quote, a Bible verse, a vocabulary word, and a personal message from myself. Use these if you like as motivation to improve yourself. Then, simply answer the daily questions provided honestly and see if it has an impact on your life. Zig Ziglar said, "If you don't have daily objectives, you qualify as a dreamer." Lets not be just dreamers but doers. Remember Martin Luther King Jr not only had a dream, he also had an objective. Thanks for reading, Jake

Valuable Ruminations


“A penny for your thoughts, oh no, I'll sell for a dollar, they're worth so much more after I'm a goner. And maybe then you'll hear the words I've been singing, funny, when you're dead how people start listening.” Perry Kimberly (from the song “If I Die Young” by the Band Perry)

My command is this: love each another as I have loved you. John 15:12

Rumination: “think deeply about something” New Oxford American Dictionary

Ok, so I know today's quote seems kinda strange, but I think there's a message in it. So many of us go through life feeling completely ignored. We may be happy one day, sad the next, and nobody seems to notice. And maybe we don't even want people to notice. But we all have opinions we think are important, ideas we believe could improve things, and knowledge we know could change something. Unfortunately, people don't always want to listen. What I want to get across today, is that your ruminations are valuable and they do matter. So keep expressing them, even when it seems like no one is listening. The day will come when they will be valued. At the same time, try to remember, others are going through the same things you are. Here's your chance to make them feel valued.

Daily Journaling Questions:
      1. How did I help someone today?
      2. What act of kindness did I perform today?
      3. What did I learn today?
      4. Who did I love today?
      5. What about today do I want to remember forever?
      6. What are my goals for tomorrow?
Thanks for reading.
