UNPLUG the Noise for one day!

Unplug-appliancesMarietta – Darren Hardy (http://darrenhardy.com/) had a great suggestion on his daily blog last week that I wholeheartedly encourage everyone to consider. Today’s political environment is so toxic and draining, it can consume us with noise that distracts us from doing what’s really important: LIVING!  Unplug the TV tonight, read something really good for the mind, listen to some great music for the soul (like Harolyn Blackwell) and do something positive for someone else.  Pay it forward, my friend! I’m sure the political campaign will still be going on tomorrow and you can get caught up if you must.  #NcourageXcellence

Words Matter.

Please remember these words. #EncourageExcellence

“We are what we think.
All that we are arises with our thoughts.
With our thoughts we make the world.
Speak or act with an impure mind
And trouble will follow you
As the wheel follows the ox that draws the cart.”
