Don’t despair of your past mistakes or missed opportunities. Learn from them, forgive yourself, provide closure, and move on towards a different yet more powerful you.  

You will have to take action.  You will have to get up off the couch, get out of bed, and put on a fresh change of clothes.  

You will have to face the day with your eyes wide open, ready to take the first step.  We all have pain, unresolved issues, reasons to hide under the cover of the night.  

We cannot always escape with our drug of choice; be it shopping, Starbucks, various abusive substances, casual (sexual) encounters with the same or opposite sex, unsafe sexual fantasies, or online and onsite adult entertainment.  

Sooner or later you will have to throw the trash out and clear your calendar for a new week. 


As a proud graduate of California State University, Chico with an earned BA degree in International Relations, Master of Arts degree in Public Policy, and a past study abroad participant at the University of Tuebingen, education has always been up front and center in both our family and my professional career. My blogging project is an eclectic work in progress and intended to increase global awareness through selections and stories of my studies and travels. As future global citizens we can seek first to understand one another through word pictures and engage our collective creative intellects to change our community; one blog at a time.
