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

The Best Days


Be like a duck. Calm on the surface, but always paddling like the dickens underneath.” Michael Caine

Even youths will become weak and tired,
and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
 They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:30-31

Vigorous: “strong, healthy, and full of energy” New Oxford American Dictionary

Sir Michael Caine is a British actor famous for leading roles in movies like “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,” “The Italian Job,” and “Secondhand Lions.” Many people don't know this about him, but Michael Caine is a Korean War veteran. In an interview I heard recently he said he experienced things in Korea that made him realize the great things in life, things that made him want to live life to the fullest. So since the age of nineteen that's what he's been doing. I think there's a lesson to learn from that. So many of us live waiting for life to begin. When we're in grade school we can't wait for high school, then we can't wait to get a job or go to college, then we can't wait to earn better wages and buy a house. The list goes on and on till we're elderly and telling our grandchildren to enjoy life cause it goes by so fast. Whether you're reading this and you're eight years old or eighty, right now is the perfect time to start living life to the fullest. If you don't start now, you'll always look back wishing you had. Right now provide the best day's of our lives if we choose to appreciate them.

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