The next presidential candidate whom ever they may be!
Has to consider these issues!
The economy, training for jobs, creating now jobs, the increasing the min. wage, provide incentives for people who want to start their own business, consider National healthcare, job training & assistance in finding employment for the homeless.
The list is endless!
But! They cannot do what a congressman did when he said: “I do have a plan but you will have to elect me me to find out what it is!”
Needless to say what happened to him!!
They cannot whoever it is say that: “In my home state I did this & that!”
Because what may have worked there!
More than likely will not work Nationally!
It is up to us voters to decide: “do we want a boy with a toy?” “Or a man with a plan?”
I think it’s because of when I was in Jr. high school.
I wrote a “Private piece” about what was going on at that time!
America was concerned about how our kids were learning and where they were learning in?
I think I wrote it because I wanted to look at it as if to say: “Would I want to read his crap?”
(Keep in mind! This was the 70’s!)
At that time I thought to myself “If I’m going to become a writer i had better get my grades up!”
(I was not an “A” student at that time.)
So I did!
I went from an “F” to a “B”!
But! In comes my mother and she said: “You have to know someone! You have to have pull!”
There went that dream!
As the years have come & gone!
It did not hit me until I found out what the word “Blog” means.
Then! I think I found my calling in life (sort of!).
I write about the “People, places, things, events” in and around our world and across the street.
I think that I give a perception/another view to things.
At times I can write with a passion!
Other times “Breaking even!”
We have all been there!
As most of you know.
I do find words do have a (At times!) powerful impact as to the way we use them.
But at the same time!
I do in a way that’s therapeutic.
It does help me to “let it all out” in a way.
We all have our own “Release valve” within us.
That is why there are journals/diaries in both hardcopy and online.
We all have to let it out somewhere besides the restroom!
Chase down your passion like it’s the last bus of the night. ~Terri Guillemets
Is the one word that has many different meanings/definitions/interpretations to a lot of us.
But! Passion is the one word that I found that can separate us from them!
What is it that to some of us gives us that drive to achieve and accomplish things we like/live/love?
What is “YOUR” passion?
It can be a whole lot of things!
People, places, things & then some.
The people we like/love that are or have come and gone in and out of our lives.
Places that we have seen in some way book, film, magazine.
Or have been to or would love to be there/live there.
Things! That either drive us crazy!
Or can’t get enough of!
Food, comfort food, candy, decadent pleasures, fruits, liquors, drinks, even people!!!!
But! The one thing!
That I think that where I’m coming from is this!
That gives us the desire to drive us to do what we want to do is!
Our work! It may seem somehow strange to some people of what I’m talking about!
But to those who do know.
They are the one’s who have the passion & drive to do what is needed in life!
We all in our own way.
Want the things we do to have meaning in our lives.
This! In itself! Is so very hard to even describe!
But let’s think about what we want to do with our life?
When we were so very young!
What did we want to be when we grew up?
Doctor, police person, firefighter, paramedic (this was created long before the word ever was in our lingo!).
When I was in the 4th. grade!
The art teacher asked the class: “What do you want to be when you grow up?”
Everyone in the class drew a picture of what they wanted to be!
I drew a picture of me being a D. J.!
When the teacher showed the class my picture!
They ALL! Laughed!
But! The art teacher said: “Now! Wait a minute!”
“This is good!”
I think what he meant was: “There is someone who can think out of the box as to what s/he wants to do with their life!”
Do you see where I’m coming from on this?
This! Is what we do with our lives!
Go to school, get good grades, either go to a trade school or continue on through to high school, either find a good paying job, or on to college/university, find something that makes BIG bucks, find someone, get married, raise a family, save for retirement and wait for the grim reaper to come!!!!!!!
I define “PASSION” as being your own person.
You have to be.
It’s because of the way too many doomsayers, naysayers the people we know will tell us: “You can’t do that!” “That’s not you!”
These people get in the way of what it is that we want to do in our lifetime.
Then! It is ever so very true!
That we do live our lives in the shell of what we truly do want to become.
Forget the past. Accept your mistakes. Dare to speak the truth. Be honest to your commitment.
If you have ever felt such tremendous enthusiasm and desire for something that you would gladly spend all your waking hours working on it, that you would happily do without pay, then you have found your passion.
