My Life Before Virtual

Once I was normal. Well not really, however I was not virtual. I did have a computer but the Internet was in “infancy”. I did things, to me, were normal, like interacting with other people in the real sense. But this was my generation…

Once the Internet became my virtual world, which may I add is the opposite of the real world, I certainly became intertwined into it. We tend to incorporate both worlds these days into a woven fabric in time. Surly we are connected in some way to each other because of its very existence.

I can hope that some good has come for it, from me. Admittedly I am a failure. I seem to have a patent on failure. I am really good at it too. But I still try. Not always do I get it right. And you can count on me to keep working at it until it is perfect. That’s what I do.

I find it ironic that I use the virtual world to write about the same world.
How much time do we spend there? I know I have dedicated (truly) a lot of my time, my life, to the Internet. I have gained vast knowledge because of it. I enjoy researching and learning new words. Imagine what can be learned through reading… in as much as you are reading this. Calculate what can be achieved if you spent more time writing, I have. I chose to write. I also chose to read. A nice trade-off for sure.

Being A Clam

Dew

Being a clam only hides oneself. Opening up, letting the sun shine in, provides a reflection. In this reflection, one will see, “I am not a clam. I am a beautiful human being.” — Wade Lancaster

Think of only today… it is the beginning of all future travels.

Life is a journey. A journey never meant to be traveled alone. Seize the day. Look out of every window. Live your dreams. Dwell on possibilities, but not too long. Forgive. A little less worry. A little less hurry. A little more kindness. Embrace the one who loves you today because tomorrow may never come. Memories complete the soul.

Sometimes the hardest things in life are worth doing. Belief is intellectual knowledge that’s a state of mind or assent of mental attitude. Therefore, without acceptance of guarantee for truth it becomes a proposition without full knowledge. So belief without truth is gossip or a flawed sense of reality.
A mental attitude of acceptance or assent toward a proposition without the full intellectual knowledge required to guarantee its truth.

Every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life are based on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving.
Albert Einstein

You’ve done it before and you can do it now. See the positive possibilities, redirect the substantial energy of your frustration and turn it into positive, effective, unstoppable determination.
What you do not seek, you cannot discover.

Relativity is a paradox of constant applicability.
My entire life is a sheet of paper that a sphere passes through.
I am an onion shell personality, yet electric.
Your action never caused me to be a refraction because I never blended.
Going with you to the moon and back is so much better then going alone.
Build your plan because every great journey starts with a great plan.
Act and take the right steps to bring your plan to life.
Develop, grow, and set a course for success.
Network and build your personal brand in places you have never ventured.
Prepare for your future and be ready for opportunities you want to pursue.
Seek and discover yourself because nobody knows you better than you.
The possibilities are endless on what you can achieve.
Further your education, expand your mind, and unlock your potential.
Look into your heart. You have more to give when you embrace internal love.
Mismanagement of ones body and mind is cause for lower self esteem. Be all you ever wanted to be.
Dream when you sleep, release the stress that plaques your mind, and wake each day refreshed.
When you arise each day, be positive, admittance of positive thought make the day positive too.
Surrounding oneself with positive people, positive environments, and positive thoughts make for positive results.

Sometimes the glass is simply half empty,
but most of the time it’s overflowing.

The heart lives inside the body. It can only live outside the body when it is given to another. The heart is the pathway to loving. Follow the path and your heart will set the course. The mind lives inside the head. It can only live outside when it is shared. Open your mind and see… you are more then just a shell. Express your thoughts, you will discover the world known as expression. Take the ladder upward from the cave of darkness. Emerge and see the beauty of the light above. Life is better when shared with someone. Surround yourself with the one who loves you. Open your arms and receive the gift of love. Open your mind and heart, then and only then, can you release your burdens and embrace the wonderment of sharing, giving, and receiving the gifts of love.

We were given: Two hands to hold. Two legs to walk. Two eyes to see. Two ears to listen. But why only one heart? Because the other was given to someone else for us to find.

Let someone love you just the way you are. As flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as unaccomplished as you think you are. To believe that you must hide all the parts of you that are broken, out of fear that someone else is incapable of loving what is less than perfect, is to believe that sunlight is incapable of entering a broken window and illuminating a dark room.

My heart, my life, my soul, she has the key to them all. She has but to turn the key and allow me to surround her with my warmth and love.

Brokenness distills the intentions of the heart by helping us to be more honest with ourselves. We begin to realize that we are more vulnerable than at first we thought; that our faith is not as strong as we imagined, and that our motives are often mixed and unconscious. Illusions are striped away; idols crumble; deeper levels of selfishness are uncovered; the gap between our words and our deeds. If someone comes into your life and has a positive impact on you, be thankful that your paths crossed. And even if they can’t stay for some reason, be thankful that they somehow made you happy, even if it was just for a while.

The woman’s kindness tames and guides the lion. The quiet gentle qualities-courage, faith, forgiveness, love and patience–associated with inner strength are much more powerful than brute force and material power. It is these qualities that help us endure when times are tough. When your enemy is hungry, A good man will feed them. He is a warrior. And because of his woman, he shows humility.

Remembering being mortal; I remember. I do not feel it. I can, if I choose. It is very, very sad being mortal. There is happiness, yes. But mostly sadness. As I have said, “Count only the happy hours.” For mortals, they are all to few. But for me — there is no more feeling. Only knowing. Not quite no more feeling. I still want to win. I want to defeat evil. Perhaps I have lost the feeling for the people, for their suffering. I don’t want that feeling. It is of no use to me. That is no longer what matters to me. I only want not to lose. To lose would be very, very bitter.

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.

How smart are humans? A single minded answer, being humans are the ones doing the definition. Yet, are there any other known species with whom we can converse to define that answer?

A Little Inspiration

You need to be moving if you want God to show you which way to go.

Be a blessing to someone today. -Proverbs 11:25

Knock, & the door will be opened. -Luke 11.9

When you start focusing on a loving God who’s given everything & stop focusing on what seems to be going wrong, you will see breakthrough.

Honesty can keep you safe, but if you can’t be trusted, you trap yourself. -Proverbs 11:6

Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. -Matthew 5:16

He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, & by his wounds we are healed. -Isa 53:5

He who covers over an offense promotes love, but whoever repeats the matter separates close friends. -Proverbs 17:9

Love your enemies. Do good to those who hate you. Speak well of those who curse you. -Luke 6:27-28

Bible Scripture

Women Of Christ

Get rid of your of worries. Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you. -1Peter 5:7

God never promises the absence of storms. He just promises to walk with us through them. Faith does not mean trusting God to stop the storm, but trusting him to strengthen us as we walk through the storm.

My Novel Idea

Friendship is the strongest foundation two people can ever share. A true friend is someone who helps me to be a better person. Be there for me, please?

I Think perhaps it is time to post some of my writings to the wall. Certainly I have so much to say, yet so little time to write. We all have that voice in our head. Not the one that tells someone some psychotic notion to destroy, (yet I know people who are set on destruction) but one that say to write. Heck! It actually screams at me. I am deep in thought even when working. Aside from my constant thought of the woman I love, my thoughts are at most time thinking about what to write.
Thinking about writing, never truly gets us anywhere if we do not place the pen to paper. Or in this technology age, to keyboard. I feel very fortunate to have learned to use notepad (onenote) and voice snips to capture my thoughts. Without these the idea would soon be forgotten or become something I never intended to say. We must make full use of the tools available as writers. How many times have you thought of something brilliant while driving or doing some other hands on task, and not been able to also jot it down? I have found that a Bluetooth headset solves this for me. I can send a text (sms) to myself or save it to onenote. I bought a Bluetooth, when I was driving over the road. It enabled my beautiful woman and myself to talk, sometimes for hours, while I drove. Don’t text and drive Y’all 🙂
So, back to this thought, on writing. I shall create a new page. And herein I will began as chapter one. Then as I build the book, I could make as many child post to the parent. I love creating with @wordpress #wordpress is a very powerful and easy way we can share our thoughts from the mind to the virtual world.

A Word About Publishing

‘It all starts with you. If you’re not ready to wear a new hat or have others help you, then find enjoyment just writing for yourself and your cat’.

Self-Publish, Vanity Publish, Traditional Publish.

When you have spent months or years writing your book, it becomes a novel idea when we decide to put all that effort into book form. So, what to do, who to turn to, where can you get your book published and by whom?

publish
[ ˈpəbliSH ] verb
verb: publish third person present: publishes past tense: published past participle:
1.(of an author or company) prepare and issue (a book, journal, piece of music, or other work) for public sale:
“we publish practical reference books”
synonyms: issue bring out produce print
2.communicate (a libel) to a third party

There are many options today. Self publishing has become the “NEW” way people are getting their book out. Yet it does mean you still have to be able to have the money, method, marketing and warehousing to choose this method.
With the Internet, “The world becomes like a small village.” #quoteofwadelancaster and you can reach a large number in your target audience. However, you still have limited yourself to a small portion of what you can achieve.

I found a publisher for my novel. It is a truly convoluted tale, about a man, who meets a woman, online. His past, dreams and real world experience, the virtual reality sword and how everything ties together. Held only by the thread of hope… will they ever find the destiny of true love and happiness together as one. A vixen, a vampire, a knight, and a geek. Passions and hate mixed with an ongoing attempt to unite the two as one. A truck and travels, a home not secured. Lies and secrets and hidden agenda’s what could become of these. A monster and an angel, a beast and a saint, what a convoluted story, real and virtual can make?

I plan to write a vast amount here, in my blog. And give my view on why you should write. Write from the heart, from mind to pen. The words of your vision, to keyboard you can spell.
