Inspiration can be found in and comes from the most unlikely places which makes them even more profoundly delectable. Moments in time which house inspiration are shelved countless times waiting for its eventful moment to be snatched once it finds itself again airborne….although some are fortunate enough to be taken straight from the shelves.
When a song plays if the mood is right, the perfect thought will be caught in the mind of one who has homed in on that thought which has braved to be… to inspire, to be that drive….to do that which it has gone out to do…to help promote change.

When or where will your next inspirational moment come from….
A thought just came to me concerning challenges…several thoughts actually.
Sometimes we seem to feel we are challenged and in some cases we are put on the defensive because we may feel it was unjust, creating emotions built on anger.
There are times when stuff pops up when we least expect it and that could cause anxiety…which in turn will bring thoughts that are not quite clear because we don’t have the desire to deal with anything.
Then there are challenges that push us…make us work, think, have that feeling of accomplishment.
So what are the underlying factors behind challenges? Are they tests? Do they come to consume ones very being? Are they meant to build?…or destroy.
Challenges come in all facets through life. We cannot avoid them. One thing they can do at times… frustrate. But I believe in the long run, that builds character.
My vote goes to challenges being an integral part of life unavoidable….like it or not…and whether I like them or not, they teach me and I learn and from that comes growth.
I guess it’s all in how you look at it.
Whatr U Workin On?
I have a few pictures I have taken the past few weeks I’d like to post. But this one I took late evening yesterday.
I don’t know for sure who did this, but I’m guessing the Grands had a hand in it.
The next one was done by DaddyCharles…there was more but in the preview it looked as if it wasn’t showing the letters at all so I didn’t take any more.
Capturing moments in this space in time will be enjoyed in awe in later years in their space in time.

I haven’t forgotten about the meme or the other stuff I’m #workinon. It’s been a rough ride lately and really tough to get the wrench out of the gears.
My previous post was in draft and I had forgotten all about it. I had written it back on May 13th and thought I might tweak it a bit, but set it aside. That must have been the beginning of the funk.
Finding a happy medium in a place that is filled with anything but happiness has been breathtaking…and not as in awe inspiring. It has been a struggle to break through the rut of what seems like, despair. I say despair because it seemed to be relentless. Usually I would find myself dealing with negatives, on a positive note. Noooo…not this time.
I’m angry with myself for allowing this to happen….this is not me. Sure there are times when we fall into doldrums, but I was getting dangerously close to not wanting to write anymore. It was as if I didn’t care…AND I KNOW THAT IS NOT ME!
Going through my mind now, I see some of the things that has brought me to stagnant hood.
Occupation-wise, I have been installing auto glass for 30+ years now….I’m tired. I like what I do….but I’m tired. One of the most rewarding part of my job that keeps me going are the customers we service. It is really gratifying to see the smiles and have a good talk at times while working.
I think I’m burnt on my current occupation and deep inside, crave for change, something new. But we all know that these are tough times and jobs are hard to come by. Watching the evening news and saw that all those people will be out of work once this last shuttle mission is over.
Tough times…nuf said on that.
I bought a used bike this past Sunday. This will be beneficial in many ways. I don’t have to worry about gas. I get exercise. My mind will start functioning again. Can’t go wrong with any of that.
I’m still here and kickin’.

Here are some pics I took while moving things around in the room that is now no longer my man cave.
|The pink you see is not the color of my choice when
these pieces of furniture were purchased.
We bought these from a place that sold used hotel furniture. They had a brown that I preferred but settled on the pink for TheWife.
|A few items set aside waiting
for their new home.
|This is a better shot of the 4 drawer dresser.
We’ve had these around for at least
20 years. They were in TheWife’s possesion
during the separation.
One thing I will say about these…they withstand the test of time.
|At this point I thought I was finally
coming to the close of a long day…
|…until this. This was a heart breaker. In my mind and
measurements, this should not have been a
problem…except I missed a measure or two….
Our minds are remarkable. Each mind different from the next, yet similar in many ways. We think alike, yet we differ in opinion. Even many of our intricate thoughts and views are shared by many, without even acknowledging one to the other. Our minds are always busy thinking ahead and sometimes, behind. We are able to accomplish many things in our minds, long before they are a finished product we see with our eyes, touch with our hands. We multi task so effortlessly in our minds, it has become second nature. A thought can sometimes trigger emotions within us. We create new things, or simply improve the old from a thought. We see things with our minds and that gives us hope. A thought, or many thoughts, create an answer to a question, or perhaps an answer to a problem. When our ears hear music to our liking, it engulfs us into a state of euphoria…causing us to sway side to side, we dance, our heads bob back and forth in appreciation.
We should be thankful for all that we are able to accomplish, simply because we have, Thoughts In Our Minds.
Moments in any given day can and will bring times of laughter. Often times we find we’re laughing at ourselves, which is a good thing. If we laugh at ourselves and others see it, then we are more able to enjoy a laugh at someone else’s expense. It’s all in fun in how you present it or how it is played out. Sometimes we have to find more ways to laugh than to keep ways of making things worse.
