The Good Ol' Days.

Ah, the good ol' days. When we were young. LOL. Remember, those?

Man, I can remember hearing this song and it was just like wow, I can't wait until the weekend and I was like only what?, maybe 13. You couldn't tell me anything though. I was headed to whatever party there was gonna be and best believe that if I paid even just $1, I was dancing the whole night with everyone I wanted to. I wish a muthatrucka would tell me to stand over by the wall and just "look" cool (Shout out to Cedric the Entertainer lol.) See, back then as they say, we knew the value of a dollar. It's Thursday, and I'm already ready for the weekend. What about you?

What was your favorite party/dancing song when you were 13?

Your dreams ain't easy, but you will know.

Ohayoo gozaimasu,

This has been a long time coming and I'm still figuring it all out, but I'm learning more and more each day the value of perspective. Steven Covey talks about "paradigm shift" and how having that can quickly change behavior/understanding. In film, this is known as a "rack shift focus" Behavior change is something we often associate with a long period of time. I wondered why is that so? I think because we usually think about the "hopelessness" of some situations and how nothing has worked thus far. It can't be done and people don't want anything better. Well, I respectfully disagree.

Think about the pebble and the crow who was thirsty.

Think about the man who collected a penny everyday.

Somebody told me the only way to produce more diamonds faster, is to increase the pressure.

Today is Thursday, February 2nd, 2012. Let's have some fun. Comment with your favorite quote, something that inspires you and keeps you going.

Thank ya,
