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

Go Live Life

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” Albert Einstein

And the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside and said, “Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.” John 2:9-10

Animation: “the state of being full of life or vigor; liveliness” New Oxford American Dictionary

“Go live life,” read the note by the door of a Gary's apartment. The man had been an executive for Blue Cross Blue Shield but lost much of his short term memory ability in a car accident and had to use sticky notes to remind him of what to do at certain moments in life. Things like “brush your teeth,” “take a shower,” “or go to bed.” But the most telling note I think is the one to remind him to “Go live life.” I think we could all use that note by our door. So many of us our so busy with work, play, or whatever, that we forget to really live life. So let's get out there and take a note from this man with limited memory, go live life, become animated, and see what miracles we can find.
