Final thought for tonight: if someone else can do something, you can too if you have the will, the drive, the passion, the motivation, the dedication, and the foundational information needed to achieve it. If any of those things are lacking, it will be difficult to model the results you seek.
I know what I’m passionate about. I know what I can accomplish when I set my mind to it. If I want it, I will do it. If I don’t want it or lack the interest or dedication, I won’t do it.
What is it that YOU want? Not your family. Not your friends. Not your spouse. Not your kids. What do YOU want?
What makes your soul sing? When you engage in that activity, do you slip away, losing track of time because it’s a pleasant experience and you’re in ‘the zone’? That’s a hint right there. Whatever makes you feel that way, pay attention to it. Pursue it.
Don’t ask other people’s permission. Don’t ask them what THEY think you should do. It’s not about them. It’s about YOU. Nobody knows you better than yourself.
Unless you’re clear on what YOU want (not what people THINK you should want or be), you won’t accomplish anything near what you wish for. Getting clear is utmost in importance.
I’ve lost some clarity over the years, or sacrificed it for other things and people that were merely distractions from the genuine passion that lives within my core being. But now, RIGHT NOW, I am crystal clear on what I want, and I aim to get it, one way or another.
Colorado Springs Paranormal Association (C.S.P.A.) has been asked to conduct a presentation on the paranormal and paranormal investigation for the main Penrose library in downtown Colorado Springs, Colorado. The date will be Saturday, July 26, 2014.
The event will last for several hours. The presentation will be first, followed by a Q & A session, and a demonstration of investigation techniques as we mock-investigate the library itself.
**THIS EVENT IS FREE TO THE PUBLIC—ALL AGES ARE WELCOME (but remember that, for some small children, discussing paranormal phenomena may upset or disturb them; use good judgment).**
I don’t have a time yet, but it’ll most likely start around 7 p.m. I’ll let you know once PPLD confirms. If you missed our previous events, this is the time to attend. Hope to see you there!
Paul is watching “Penny Dreadful.” Timothy Dalton is in the series and I melt every damned time I see him in anything, pretty much. *sigh* Plus, he’s Welsh.
In the copy of the genealogical papers I have from the family historian on my birth mother’s side, my 9th generation ancestors, William Hughes and (Mary) Molly Daten, married in Surrey, England. Molly Daten was born in Wales and lived to be 87. They had six children: Mary Hughes (1748-1810), Susannah Hughes (1767-1834), Rebecca Hughes (1769-Unknown), Elizabeth Hughes (1774-1870), Moses Hughes (1774-1841), and Milburn Hughes (1776-1867).
I have Scottish ancestors as well (Clan Fergusson and Clan MacNeil of Barra), but I haven’t spent as much time investigating my Welsh, Irish, and Northern European ancestry.
After having my DNA test done, there are so many parts that make up the whole. I love this stuff!
Perhaps when I go back to the UK, I can visit Wales and see my friends Gareth Tamplin and Robin James Ganderton.
When I become highly focused on something I’m working on or creating, I get extremely agitated when I’m interrupted in any way (especially if it’s trivial stuff). I need my Cave of Solitude time. You’ve heard of the man cave? Well, I have a woman cave, and woe betide anyone who bothers me. Many times, I don’t even want to mess with eating or going to the bathroom, but those things I can’t ignore. However, unless it’s bleeding or on fire, it’s best to leave me alone in my Cave of Solitude until I’m ready to emerge and join humanity again.
