  • Fail

    I have not failed. I’ve just found 10000 ways that won’t work. Thomas Edison Edison’s thinking was optimistic. It was progressive. It makes sense. Without failure, how do we learn? The key is to overcome the failure. We must be willing to fall 10000 times. Developing the tenacity to accept failure is a challenge today. […]

  • Failure is Good

    What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything? Vincent Van Gogh How many are paralyzed by the fear of the attempt? What greatness is never achieved because someone did not try? Where would life be? We are called to greatness. We are called to live. Life is experienced. It is experiences. […]

  • Seeds

    We tend to value the things that we can take home. Things that we see immediately and can benefit from possessing it. If we go about it this way, will we ever possess enough? Does the pursuit of the harvest ever end? We are looking at it wrong. We are looking at life as it […]

  • BYU, BYU, oh BYU

    Recently, the BYU women’s volleyball team hosted the Duke University women’s volleyball team for a match. During the match, members of the home crowd hurled racial slurs at a member of the Duke team. Nothing was done to stop the attacks. Apparently, security was assigned to Duke’s bench because the player’s safety was threatened, yet […]

    Often injustice lies in what you aren’t doing, not only in what you are doing. Marcus Aurelius   Take a moment to think about those words written centuries ago. What are they saying?

    My heart aches. It seems impossible but these events continue to happen. Day after day the news is filled with stories of needless violence and the death of innocents. Society gasps and offers a moment of silence but since it does not affect them directly, they go on with their life after offering encouraging words. […]

  • Scraps

    I look around myself and I found scraps of incomplete thoughts jotted down on paper or in a document. It seems like my mind cannot commit to completing a thought or formulating an idea or a transition phrase. I think it is more of an indication of where I am as a person. I am […]

  • Hope

    If I am ever asked what my favorite flower is I respond daffodils. Most assume that I like the yellow color of the flower. That is true to an extent although green is my favorite color. The truth is what the flower represents to me It represents hope. The first time I noticed daffodils was […]

  • Change

    It is not a secret that we need to change. As an individual, I must change some of my habits to make me a healthier and wealthier human being. There are changes needed to make me a better human. Making these changes depends wholly on me making the decision to make the effort to make […]

  • For Granted

    We spend so much time of our lives accepting the little things. At times, we offer our appreciation in passing but not really paying attention to them or really acknowledging the sum of the little things. When forced to accept that the little things are gone, we realize our mistakes. Take the time, to say […]
