I’ve heard before that you’ll never find a rainbow if you’re looking down. I second that notion. I raise the bet by saying that a rainbow is and means different things to different people. Is there really a pot of gold at the end of every rainbow? That’s up for interpretation and all about perspective. I believe there is. Rainbows are in fact, by definition a phenomenon.

“Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.” -Maya Angelou

“Somewhere over the rainbow skies are blue, and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.” -Lyman Frank Baum

Meaningful Scribbles

& never forget that. Whether you’ve prayed, meditated, subconsciously or consciously and deliberately manifested it, what you are experiencing—-living, is a representation of where you’ve been and a glimpse as to where you are going.

Instead of letting trivial things escalade into serious issues, attack the iceberg one small chip at a time, as an artist carving a sculpture out of a huge block of material. Sometimes we as people allow things we have no control over to overwhelm us. Do what you can, and let the rest go. (more…)

Progression

The funny thing about setting a goal is if you chip away at it enough-little by little, you’re bound to overcome it. Motivation becomes dedication, then evolves into discipline, and that’s when the magic happens. I’m a big believer in documenting progress. Most of the time you don’t realize how far you’ve come until you look back. There’s a quote I like that basically says never look back unless it’s to see how far you’ve come. I kinda like it. In lamest terms, you are your own worst enemy. You are your biggest competitor. You are the only person that can hold you back from becoming better than you were yesterday. Don’t cheat yourself.
