Just Glad To Be In The Building

This is a day and weekend that we honor a man who wanted and fought for equal rights for all. Strangely enough, his dream is still unfulfilled. 

He did get minorities into the room though and that has helped matters greatly. 

Sometimes you have to see where you are and enjoy it before moving on to the next destination. Embrace it, it's good to be where you are.

Many people like to complain of not getting invited to a party or dinner. Now if it's super exclusive or you're not that close to those people, you shouldn't be angry. Sometimes you just have to be grateful for where and who invites you out.

Again, it's just good to be in the room.

Only 4 NFL teams remain now with the Super Bowl 3 weeks away. Will the Pats get #6? Will the Vikings be the first NFL team to play for the Super Bowl in their home dome?

Either way, it's good to just be in the room still, as these four teams are.

You have a job, a car, money in the bank and clothes on your back. You are definitely still in the room, although it might not be where you want it to be. 

Your 2018 goals still can come true. Did you fail at your first of year fast? Try again. Make new friends if the current ones aren't compatible.  It's ok to not make it the first try.

You're still in the room, right?

Addiction: it's real and it's terrible

We start off this and each New Year with optimism, joy, and hope. Many set goals short and long term.

Addiction, in any form, can be dangerous. Whether be drugs, food, or even crafting (and I like crafting), everything should be in moderation.

If you want to lose weight, start by eating less and better. If you want to save money, spend less. You may need assistance and guidance to form better habits and behaviors.

It takes 21 days to change and create a habit so be patient. Utilize every resource in your arsenal.

You can beat any addiction, big or small. Don't be afraid to ask for help or seek out a professional. RISE above it and become the change in your life!

This way, all of your New Year's goals and dreams can come true, and you can be clean of all addiction..
