I held the pen when I wrote 'Uncle Tom's Cabin;' God dictated. Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.
-- Harriet Beecher Stowe

A Slight Turn

 

Some people don't naturally see the good in life. It's not that it's not there for them to see; they're just looking in the wrong direction.

I was out on a walk with Tamara the other night and I noticed this.

The clouds were kind of drab. Kind of bluish-gray. It was an Eeyore sky.

If I turned slightly to the left, there was a dramatic difference...

Color and awe. It's amazing what a shift in position can do. It can "pink up" your whole outlook.

It's not why the idea can't work... it's how the idea can work.

A lot of people are familiar with Michelangelo's quote:

"The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark."

He also said this:

"Lord, grant that I may always desire more than I can accomplish."

Birth never happens unless you push.

Push hard.
