Thoughts Of Encouragement

Good Day, my friends and followers!  Hope your day is fabulous. Today I want to share a little hope and encouragement,  with words from a fellow writer, Lonnie Parker Jordon.

                                    THOUGHTS OF ENCOURAGEMENT
                                                 By Lonnie Parker Jordon

Three Stategies for Success

1.  A big wastebasket- you must know what to eliminate.

2.  Know what to preserve.

3.  Know when to say no, for developing the power to say no gives us the capacity to say yes.

When people think of me, I would like to be remembered as someone who never gave up.  I never lost hope, but more importantly, I did my best; not only when I reached my goal, but also times when I failed or disappointed someone.  Each time it was the same for me, it was the best I had to give.

Total effort, fully expended, in quest of a worthy idea is the key to maximum performance.
                        DON'T let regrets replace your dreams.
                        DO what people say you can't do.
                        KEEP your heart right, even when it is sorely wounded.
                        REMEMBER you can miss a lot of  good things in life,
                              by having the wrong attitude.
If God is your partner........MAKE YOUR PLANS BIG!

The Genius Of The Crowd

Good Day World!  Today I came across a poem by Charles Bukowski that I want to share with you.

                                           The Genius Of The Crowd

there is enough treachery, hatred, violence, absurdity in the average human
being to supply any given army on any given day

and the best at murder are those who preach against it
the best at hate are those who preach love
and the best at war finally are those who preach peace

those who preach god, need god
those who preach peace do not have peace
those who preach peace do not have love

beware the preachers
beware the knowers
beware those who are always reading books
beware those who either detest poverty
or are proud of it
beware those quick to praise
for they need praise in return
beware those who are quick to censor
they are afraid of what they do not know
beware those who seek constant crowds for
they are nothing alone
beware the average man the average woman
beware their love, their love is average

but there is genius in their hatred
there is enough genius in their hatred to kill you
to kill anybody
not wanting solitude
not understanding solitude
they will attempt to destroy anything
that differs from their own

not being able to create art
they will not understand art
they will consider their failure as creators
only as a failure of the world
not being able to love fully
they will believe your love incomplete
and then they will hate you
and their hatred will be perfect

like a shining diamond
like a knife
like a mountain
like a tiger
like hemlock

their finest art

Good Morning World!  What a gorgeous day it is.  Just thinking about all the new and amazing technologies I have witnessed, in the medical industry, in the past year.  I am not much of a "run to the doctor" kind of person, so I wasn't really educated in this area.  For example,  when a tumor was discovered in my eye, I was immediately scheduled for "Radiation Plaque Therapy".  A new targeted radiation that does the least amount of damage to good cells.  Very advanced and amazing treatment.
Then as I had an MRI, the attendants hooked up a port in my arm, slid me into the chamber, took several images,  then informed me they were "injecting" dye for contrast; which they did remotely!  Blew my mind!
Now my older sister just had back surgery yesterday, when before the procedure two young doctors came in to explain that they would put needles in her head, spine, and leg to monitor her nerve impulses on a computer in another room, to assist the Surgeon during surgery! Pretty Amazing stuff!
So the Word for today is AMAZING TECHNOLOGY: Look around you and contemplate the use of new technology wherever you go today!
Have a beautiful and amazing day!
