With less than 24 hours before kickoff to Super Bowl #49 (yea, I didn’t do the Roman numerals thing cause it was too much trouble to figure it out and I am too lazy to look it up), I give you my top 5 reasons to like the Super Bowl from least important to most important. So, to not keep you waiting and guessing, here we go!
The Seahawks are playing in back to back Super Bowl’s, and yes I live in Washington so you know who I am rooting for. Go Hawks!
Football is an okay sport, and watching with a group of friends is fun especially if a team you like is playing. Go Hawks!
The Super Bowl means football season is almost over and too much of a good thing is not necessarily a good thing.Go Hawks!
The end of football season means spring is just around the corner and … well I think you probably know what that means, warmer weather! Go Dodgers! Go Mariners!
Yep, that’s right! #1 reason I like the Super Bowl is that Spring Training and finally after a long winter, Baseball season is almost here!!! Go Dodgers!Go Mariners!
Sometimes saying NO to things is as important as saying yes to the things we wish to pursue. Saying NO, frees up time to focus on our priorities and limits the distractions. Because I am saying NO to the unimportant distracting things here are some things in the very near future that I will be saying yes to.
Things To do:
Prepare for speaking and reading my poetry at a healing prayer ministry class in February.
Complete and submit a postcard for the Twitter Art Exhibit-Moss in March.
Update and refresh the Fine Art America site with new art.
Finalize the edits to the 2014 novel for first round of a beta reading critique.
Begin assembling my poems for a poetry collection to submit for publishing.
Love God, others and myself; allow God, others and myself to love me.
What do you have upcoming that you need to commit to do? Better yet, what do you want to truly do and how can you say no to the distracting things so you can say YES? I encourage you to choose wisely and be…
It was a dark and stormy night. A time when writer’s will write deep into the fading light. Fumbling over the words on paper that somehow dance and sing. A Masterpiece or not may be created out of seemingly nothing. The winds may howl and blowing rain splatters the window pane. As the dark night begins to wane.
As Halloween approaches how would you finish the sentence
– It was a dark and stormy night…?
Scary/Suspenseful? – It was a dark and stormy night and the shallow light of the moon cast haunting shadows across the floor. He knew this was the moment as he stood before the door his hand on the doorknob. Holding his breath he slowly began to turn the knob and as he did he heard the screams …
Humorous/Funny? – It was a dark and stormy night and the chocolate stains at the corner of his lips was the only evidence left behind from the chocolate pie and whipped cream midnight refrigerator raid.
Peaceful/Contented?– It was a dark and stormy night, the warmth of the crackling fire cast a peaceful glow across the room. She silently stared at the pictures in the photo album, remembering the past with a smile on her lips.
Please share your thoughts, how would you finish the sentence? It just might be the next great novel!
In the beginning the lines we draw around our lives serve to define and differentiate us, and then over time they come to limit and isolate us. To experience the relationships we were meant to experience with God or other human beings we must hug those lines and even be willing to cross over and color outside those very same lines.
We often draw lines in our lives, setting boundaries all in the name of trying to keep ourselves from being hurt. In the end they keep us from experiencing all that life as to offer. Free will allows us to be the artist of our lives and to create a life’s work that is uniquely us. We only reach that place of breakthrough when we move past what is comfortable, what is known, what is expected and into the absurd. We must allow the colors to run, to mingle and mix with the colors of others creating new hues and shades.
From fearful to FEARLESS, is a shorter leap than most would think.
I recently read a post by Tara Reed on theArtLicensingBlog.comentitled“Comfort or Courage?”A great post that it all comes down to a choice between being comfortable and or being uncomfortable for a while when you chose to be courageous.
