Strip away the layers and reveal your soul

Give yourself up and then you become whole.

I wanna be the one
When all is said and done
Who lived a good life, loved a good wife,

Always helped someone in trouble
On the day they lay me down
I want everyone to gather ‘round
And say he was a father, brother, neighbor and a friend
He was a good man!”

~Emerson Drive, A Good Man


Best start putting first things first.
Cause when your hourglass runs out of sand
You can’t flip it over and start again
Take every breathe God gives you for what it’s worth.

~Kenny Chesney Don’t Blink


Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off the goal.

~Henry Ford


There’s a world outside every darkened door
Where Blues won’t haunt you anymore
For the brave are free and lovers soar
Come ride with me to the distant shore.

Life is a highway.

~Tom Cochrane


Time spent wasted is not wasted time.



People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.

My next thirty years I’m gonna settle all the scores
Cry a little less, laugh a little more
Find a world of happiness without the hate and fear
Figure out just what I’m doing here
In my next thirty years.

~Tim McGraw, My Next 30 Years


We’re so busy watching out for what’s ahead of us that we don’t take time to enjoy where we are.
