I am moving to another blog page

This is the blog page I am in the process of moving to.

Love ..How do you define it?

  In the dictionary love is defined as an emotional feeling , passion , personal attachment. They say love is described as a feel good feeling. To me love is a choice not a feeling.

  When you first meet a person the " emotion" you feel is from physical attraction then the word love is thrown in there as an umbrella statement. When you are told you will be having pizza for supper , you get excited because you like how it taste . Then the word love is thrown in there as an umbrella statement. When you are told you are going to a movie or a sports game you get those butterfly feelings in your stomach. You are feeling excited, happy . The the word love is used as an umbrella statement.

  This how the word love is confused as a feeling. You are using this word when you " feel" an actual emotion and this is the first word thrown out there.

  Look at relationships. When you first meet a person you get all excited from the physical infatuation you have for that person . After a while that goes away because you are use to seeing how that person looks. Then people break up saying they fell out of "love". People break up out of choice. People think that in order to stay in "love" you have to have that butterfly feeling all the time. If you truly care for a person you will choose to stay together.

  If you stop getting excited about going to a movie or sports or eating you still choose to do all of the above because you enjoy it , it's something you like. Even if the last meal , movie, or sports game was boring and you was not excited after the events , you still keep doing them. Why? Because you choose to . Even after the excitement wears off if you want to keep doing them you choose to stay with it. Love has nothing to do with feelings, it's a choice.

  So don't confuse love with a feeling, it's not a feeling it's a choice. So next time you are with that special someone don't say I love you, say " I choose you ". Because at some point that lust will disappear and you will confuse that with the so called loosely used word "love" as leaving.

   When times get tough just tell yourself that you choose to make it work , that is if you really enjoy what you are doing.

  Success has so many different definitions to so many people. What does the word success mean to you ? Is it like how it is defined in the dictionary ? In the dictionary they define it as ; a level of social status , achieving a goal , or the opposite of failure .

  So by those terms you are only successful if you have a big house , a high paying job , and you never fail at what you do. If that's the case , then the political leaders in Washington D.C. or the C.E.O.'s of corporations in cities like New York, Kansas City, Boston, Las Vegas , Los Angeles , Seattle , Miami , Dallas , Houston , Chicago ,Atlanta , Detroit , Montreal , Toronto ......or any other city in this world are successful ( only for them ). To me they are failures because they seam to be missing one word when you see them talk or the way they act , HAPPINESS .

  Happiness is what defines success ( in my eyes ). It does not matter if you have a 1 room apartment or work for $9.00 an hour. If you are happy , you are a success. If you don't run that mile in 4:30 or better or the quarter in 48 seconds or better, but walk away "happy" ( win or lose ), then you are a success. If your whole family is happy then that family is a success no matter what they wear or where they live.

  If you are a powerful person or make hundreds of thousands of dollars, but you are upset or unhappy at the end of the day ( even if you reach your goals or don't fail). Then to me you are not a success , because you are not happy.

  So I guess what I am saying is, do not let a book or a person or society decide of you are a success or not. Your definition of success may be way different then what is in this blog or who or what defines it. But remember you are the one that defines success.

Fallen trees make cash.

  About a month ago our town had a real bad storm. It up rotted huge trees and ripped up signs and power lines came unattached. Well there is this house down the street that had a tree that looks to be 50 + years old ( it was a huge tree ). During the storm it was ripped out of the ground roots and all. This tree landed on the home and about 3 cars.

  As I would drive by the home , each day the home owner would work at cutting the tree into smaller pieces. As time went on he had a pile of logs. And I started to notice piles of saw dust all over the yard. I felt sorry for this family because to me it looked like that they got the raw end of the deal.

  Well yesterday I noticed something. This family took this tree that destroyed their cars and made a mess of their yard and turned it into a great opportunity . They are using some of the tree to sell fire wood, and the rest of the tree they are making furniture and selling it.

  So the moral of this story is what ever fallen trees you have in your life , turn those fallen trees into a positive future . Learn to make cash out of your situation, or learn to make it a new road you will travel down in your life and look at the new landscape you will be passing now. Something good will become of your fallen trees. DON'T GIVE UP.

STOP THIS CLASS WARFARE. I am so tired of hearing this..

  This blog is what I have experienced or have seen from a distance or up close. Remember not everyone sees or expediences the same thing in the same manner. But I want to talk about this "class warfare" I keep hearing some people scream. THE ANSWER IS IN THE LAST PARAGRAPH.

  Ever time someone less fortunate ( lower income ) says everyone needs to pay more taxes , class warfare is screamed ( by the "rich" folk ). The " rich " have this notion that raising taxes on everyone and have social safety nets for those who need them say it's " wealth distribution ". I say helping others who need help is the adult way of living life. When I had a job, even though I didn't make a lot of money I was always donating something to those who had less then me. It was and is the right thing to to.

  Paying more in taxes is easier then being in the military , like how I was in the military. You can't die for your country by paying taxes. Yes you may bring home a little less, but you are making America stronger because the bills are being paid.

  I have had people I have never met before and they tell me that by not making enough money and paying taxes I should not have the right to vote. And these same people never served a day in the armed forces like I did. These are the same people who will cry about taxes yet they will go buy a gadget that cost $1,000.00 and the gadget was never made in our country.

  To me the "class warfare" is being played upon the poor. The poor are the first to be let go. The programs to help the poor are the first to be cut. The only food the poor can afford are the most unhealthy. Yet the rich SCREAM " class warfare" when the word taxes is talked about. Hell most of the people who think they are rich and scream this are no where close to being rich. They have just been brain washed into thinking that because they hear people on T.V. say they are rich, just to get votes.

  On FOX NEWS ( I hate to say T.V. stations on my blog, but I got to this time ), they had this lady screaming and acting so irrational while she said this ; " Don't hire ' don't spend your money , don't believe a word the President says or the White House because they lie, don't invest a dime of your money , and hoard all of your cash ". And they had another person on there saying this  ; " the unemployed people are lazy and do not want to work. We need to stop paying unemployment because that's saying being lazy is okay".

  I would trade places with any of these people right now in a heart beat, and I would be more then happy to pay 40% in income taxes as well. Because that's more then what I got right now. Would any of you " rich" folk trade places with me ? I think we all know the answer to that question.

  Here is the answer to all of this back and forth crap. We get rid of Federal income taxes. We have a 10% consumer tax, and cut Federal spending by 10% on ALL Federal programs. That way there is none of this " class warfare" and all programs are still alive for those who need it. With a consumer tax everyone has a hand in the game .  People from other countries who visit will help pay down the debt, so will drug dealers, prostitutes, and illegal workers ( anyone who works for cash only ). They all spend cash at the local Wal-Mart ( look at the outfits Wal-Mart customers wear ) .
