Whacky Wednesday: 2 rules to a peaceful marriage.

February 18, 2015

As someone who has been married for over 20 years, I have been through the best and WORST of times.

On my wedding day my dad told me what he felt were the two rules to a peaceful marriage, and I have them written down above my desk.

Rule 1: The woman is always right

Rule 2: If the woman is ever wrong, see rule 1.

It has been the greatest source of laughter for me in over 20 years.  On those “rare” occasions when my wife really annoys me, I just take one look at that, start laughing, and I’m no longer upset.

My 5 Year Goals

January 10, 2015

As we begin another year, it is time for new goals to strive for, but this year I’m doing something a little different. I have decided to write (Yes I said write) down my 5 year goals that relates directly to my career choice. During my 2014 research, I discovered that one part of the success process that may have slowed my progress towards my goals, to a crawl, was I never committed my goals to writing.
In an attempt to resolve this issue, I spent part of January 7 writing down my career goals. According to the experts, Jack Canfield, Bob Proctor, and many others, when you make your goals, think big, and be specific.
With all this in mind, here are my five year goals.
By January 1, 2020 I will be making 833,334 dollars, or more, per month. I will do this through writing, photography, music, and videos.
Writing – I will write no less than 600 words each day, and will have articles in photography & nature magazines within one year of this statement.
Photography – I will continue to sharpen my skills with nature photography, and will be a regular contributor in nature magazines within two years of this statement. By January 2020 I will have photographs in National Geographic.
Music – I will be able to perform in front of an audience with my harmonica, and be able to play at any level with confidence.
Videos – I will be posting no less than two videos per week, on both channels, and will have more than 100,000 views daily. I will also have more than 100,000 subscribers on each channel.
These are my 5 year goals officially starting January 7, 2015. If you haven’t seen any of my YouTube channels they are https://www.youtube.com/user/apb148 and https://www.youtube.com/user/NaturallyPhotographi .
If you are able to, I would greatly appreciate it if you would subscribe to these channels.
Thank you,

Day 59: Through the wall

February 21, 2012

Through the Wall

 

I see a garden

At the end of a stone path

And I long to breath in

The aroma of those enticing flowers;

But no matter how many times

I circle the surrounding wall

I find no entrance.

Day 46: Sweet Blossom

February 8, 2012

Sweet Blossom

 

Bees busy themselves about

Collecting pollen from

Sweet blossoms

To share with the hive

To make the sweet, sweet nectar

Honey.

Day 41: Cloudy Day

February 3, 2012

Cloudy Day

 

I look to the sky

At the cloud’s approach,

And think about the rain

That is coming;

How it will clean the air

And bring new life

To spring flowers.

Day 39: The Performance

February 1, 2012

The Performance

 

I perform on a stage

Where barely anyone ever sees.

I perform for others

But more than that I play for me;

Building my confidence

Opening the gate to my dreams.

The only thing to do

Is step through to the other side

Where my real audience

Awaits my performance.

Day 36: Marking Time

January 29, 2012

Marking Time

 

The clock ticked loudly

Marking time there on the wall,

Killing peaceful sleep.

Day 31: My Own Person

January 24, 2012

My own Person

 

I stand alone,

In the middle of the crowd.

I do my own thing,

We do things for others.

I decide for myself,

We follow the rules.

I am an individual,

We are members of a group.

Each one of us is unique,

Yet we are all still members

Of the human race.

Day 30: The Stream

January 23, 2012

The stream

 

The stream passes peacefully

Over the rocks,

Providing water for the weary

And life to the plants it passes,

Before finally joining

The river on its journey

To the sea.

Day 23: The Blessing of Your Life

January 16, 2012

The Blessing of Your Life

 

Welcome to your birthday,

This is not the time to worry

About being another year older;

It is the time to celebrate

The blessing of your life.

Each passing year

Gives you more blessings to celebrate

Not reasons to hide your age.

Embrace your birthday,

And share the happiness.
