This video is amazing, humorous, enlightening, and informative. It can teach us a great deal about life, relationships, work ethic, and how to deal with disappointment and even failure. Watch and enjoy. Thanks for re-posting this Steve Woodsmall!
This video clearly displays the immediate reaction, action, response, energy and mindset that every track and field athlete is taught when we fall, no matter what, no matter the odds, no matter the results, and no matter who’s watching.
Since I first started competing at the age 10 I was taught…We rise and we never ever, ever, ever give up!
This mindset transfers over into every aspect of our life.
I love this video and I’m glad my friend Staci re-posted it on Facebook. Now I can share it with you. Watch this video and then share it with everyone you know.

What an awesome story about an awesome woman, Jeralean Talley, the oldest living American turns 115 today. Read and hear more about Jeralean here.
I was just walking out of a store and I noticed a car slowly approaching me. A man driving a new Bentley Continental GT was staring at me. I kept walking and while trying to get my attention he turns his car but he never turns his head (his eyes instead stayed fixated on me), until he hears the blaring sound of a truck horn…this man had come within inches of hitting the truck. Now that would have been a doozy!
I looked at him and then noticed his wedding band on his hand. I rolled my eyes, shook my head, and kept walking. I was already annoyed before I left the store, so seeing him in his attempt to ‘holla’ at me (and not just admire and keep it moving) really ticked me off.
Look, but don’t try to get at me and you’re married. He obviously didn’t see or didn’t care to respect my wedding ring. He was just in pursuit mode. Like a hound dog.
How could he explain to his wife what happened to his car? That would be one of those…”Uh, I was looking at the radio not paying attention” or “Uh, see, I was texting while driving and wasn’t paying attention” or anything else but the truth.
Driving distracted can be tragic, costly, and painful for you and those involved directly and indirectly. If you want to check out the dude or chick, stop your car. If you want to grab something off your floor, stop your car. If you want to text or draft that long email, stop your car. Nuff said.
Have a great day and keep your eyes on the road, or pull over and stop. If you’re married, take your raggedy butt home to your spouse!

I’m smiling because I’m blessed and no one, and nothing can ever change that. It’s me and God rolling through life together each day!
Read this post and then share your thoughts. If anyone gets offended, then you’re probably the cake eater. I’m just saying!

I read this blog post by Chump Lady and laughed so hard that it took me awhile before I could stop and craft a post of my very own. It is a well-written and very colorful, let’s say, viewpoint that I just felt moved to share with all of you. If you want the chance to chuckle or say, “Amen” then here’s the article for you! Okay I think I will check out the rest of her site so that I can see what else I can gasp over. Here’s to some honest, in-your-face-telling-it-like-it-is writing!
