Ever since becoming an involuntary member of the “Life-Changing Events Club” in 2009 when my daughter lost oxygen to her brain for 6 minutes,

I have viewed life with a new perspective.

That new perspective has been the greatest gift of my life.

I believe in life’s ordinary events there is extraordinary meaning.

I believe within our lives there are many life lessons which, when applied, can vastly prepare us for what is to come in our lives.

I believe everything we do and everything that happens to us in our life – happens for a reason.

I know the reason may take many years to come to the surface.

But it most certainly will.

And, I believe, if you are paying attention, you will realize the magnificence of how the universe works.

Here is my vision for my life and for this blog:

To improve the quality of other people’s lives by converting my life experience into the seeds of love, kindness, gratitude, and appreciation which I will plant in the soul of others.

I will be present and nurture this new spirit during chaos and crisis and share in and enhance the bloom of this spirit during accomplishment.

To live in a manner and way which will inspire those I serendipitously share paths with to live their version of the same in their lives.

That is the vision for my life and for this blog.

Thank you for your support.

I Fail so I Can Succeed

One learns from Failure – not from success. Failure doesn’t mean that I failed, It just means that I haven’t succeeded just yet. Failure doesn’t mean that I have accomplished nothing, it does mean that I have learned something. Failure doesn’t mean I was a fool to try, […]

In The Zone

  I have often wondered why I coach baseball. Why am I so obsessed with the sport? Why do I spend an insane amount of time and money just to teach kids how to play a game? What is so special about baseball that I make it my […]
