Taking Stock of Life & Things including 7 Lessons Learned So Far


Quote of the day: 
If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world. 
-J.R.R. Tolkien






Happy August dear reader. Thanks for the great comments on my last post, and who knows a part two may just be in the offing. One thing I'd like for sure is to be able to travel more, see more of this beautiful world we live in, and learn about new things relating to people, culture, and environment. That being said, while away on my self imposed hiatus, from blogging, I took the opportunity to glance at my goals for 2016, my attempt to accomplish each one so far, my failings and successes, and my outlook for the coming months. I took stock of things, like when you check your supplies at home before going grocery shopping -is the ketchup low enough to warrant buying a new one? Not a great analogy, but you get the picture.


What I've learned so far

1. Although its good to make lofty goals -actually following through is the hardest part.

2. The bigger the goal, the more work and research that is required.

3. The inevitable may occur.

4. Plans may have to be modified at the last minute.

5. Taking stock is necessary, it helps to be aware of the true position of things.

6. Don't do anything you feel uncomfortable doing.

7. Nothing is impossible.

So, when was the last time you truly examined your life, thoughts and goals? We all want to be happy. And even more so, we want the people we love to be happy too. It then makes sense to pause at some point, to focus on the more important things that get us through each day -the moments, friends, family, and dreams. Those things that we hold dear, and which translates into having a more meaningful and purpose filled life -those are the things we should value the most.


Have a purpose filled week!

Peace. Love. Light*

  5. I think Tolkien had it about right - sounds like my kind of bloke. A couple of pints at the Olde Ruptured Ducke (or in Tolkien's case the Eagle and Child) and the world immediately looks much better :-)

  10. I am loving volunteer work since I retired. I can focus on things I enjoy and leave the rest. Adjusting to conditions makes me take stock as I age. Finding new things to do keeps me interested and involved in life.

    Great post.

  12. Thanx for your comment on Ocala and I'm glad you had a good time on your hiatus. Your list reminds me of my bucket list which I've pretty much given up on ever accomplishing. I'm so old now, my number one goal is to get out of bed without hitting my head on the bedpost. (Hey, that could be a country song: "Got out of bed, hit my head on the bedpost" (here a steel guitar would wail) "Felt so good, I knew it would so I made some toast." Well, that's enough of that!) :-)

  13. I love your list. They are so spot on. I especially like #4. Plans are always needing to be modified.

    ReplyDelete
  14. That's a great list. More work usually equals more regard I have found, even if not in the goal, but in the work itself. Hope you get off an a great adventure soon.

  15. I don't set goals for myself. It's like new year resolutions. I'll fail at them every time. I'm a very happy person and I live life on my terms. Although I do for others doing for myself is at the top of my list. Doing for myself takes care of me and in turn makes me happy and able to take care of others.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  16. Dear Mr. Blogoratti, the one thing I wanted to get thru to my 2 children was to set an attainable goal in their life and stay as close to the way to reach it as possible. Both are very successful and happy. To not have a single goal tends to make one stray from one point to another and never reaching their potential.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Point number one is the downfall for so many people. I try to be realistic when setting goals so I can follow through.

    Wonderful motivation in this post!

  18. I am going away...to nature...in a short while. I look forward to the quiet solitude of being me. I need to re-group and re-evaluate....

    Your thoughts are helpful.

  24. Like many others, I can identify with several of the items yiu have listed here. One of the things that is hardest for me is ridding myself of toxic relationshios. By that I mean those people who always want to bring yiu down in some way or who never seem to have time to listen to you, but expect that you will always pay attention to them.

  25. Often times we value the wrong things and ignore the things that are most purposeful. I love that opening quote, very true.

  28. Love this post. #1 and 2 are too relatable to me. Along with #4. I have to had to make a few changes during my 'semi-retirement.'

  29. Hey Mr. B! Long time!

    Truly, nothing is impossible!
    When it comes to goals...I always use the SMART strategy.
    I try not to set unrealistic goals and when things don't go according to plan, I readjust.

    Nice post as always!
    Have a pleasant week ahead.

  31. Best spell caster of the year revealed by google. save your crumbling marriage now.

    BEST AND GENUINE SPELL CASTER ONLINE TO HELP SAVE BROKEN MARRIAGE AND BROKEN RELATIONSHIP
    Am Jerry miler, I live in London, and I’m happily married with a lovely wife and three children. I had a very big problem with my wife few months ago, to the extent that she left the house with our kids to her parents' for almost 5 months. All efforts to bring them back proved abortive. Friends and Family were all in concern and my very close mate gave me an advice concerning a spell caster, and he quote; “There’s someone who can handle your situation, he’s always ready and able to do anything related to spiritual matters, I searched for a spell caster on the internet, his advert was everywhere, i found his number and called him on his mobile number +2347052958531. Although I never believed in spell casting, but he convinced me and I had no choice than to follow his advice, because I never dream of losing my lovely wife and I was desperate. So I did all what he told me to do and i did. He told me that I’ll get my wife back in two days after the spell is completed. I was skeptical. He casted the spell for me and i was so anxious waiting to see or hear from her, until the second day when my wife called and said she was coming HOME…..It was like a joke to me!!! That’s how I got my family back through spiritual means and our relationship is now stronger than ever. One of the price I was asked to pay was to tell it to people around me that problems like this, can always be solved by Dr Ewan. And this is his email too if you wish to contact him and solve your problem too covenantsolutiontemple@gmail.com , my advice to you out there is to visit this great Dr Ewan and tell him your problems. He's capable of handling anything spiritual and spell casting. Thanks a lot for saving my marriage. covenantsolutiontemple@gmail.com. You can also add him up on watsapp on +2349057353987, you can also call him on his mobile number +2347052958531

  32. What else can i say rather than to thank Doctor Okpamen who God used to reunite my marriage. Each day of my life, i ask God to bless Dr. Okpamen for he has made my life complete by bringing back my husband to me and for this reason, i made a vow to my self that i will testify on the internet to let the world know that Dr. Okpamen is a God on Earth. My husband and i had a fight for three days which led to our divorce. On this faithful day, i came across a testimony of how Dr. Okpamen helped a lady in getting back her lover. So, i contacted him and explained to him and he told me that my days of sorrows are over that my husband will come back to me within 12 to 16 hours.. Could you believe it, my husband came home begging that he needs me back. Do you need any kind of help? Contact him now via email: ( Doctorokpamenspelltemple@hotmail.com ), Website: http://doctorokpamenpowerfulspelltemple.webs.com, call and whatsapp him via +2348135254384 OR for more confirmation call or text me on my cell# +1 (914) 517-3229.

  33. I believe in destiny, I also believe I can express my pain or broken heart to anyone whom my instinct guides me to because am not weak or less a human regardless of the criticism I might face from close friends and family. It came to a point in life that I realized I have been losing important people in my life. Just within 3 years, I have already been in 14 relationships and none of them lasted for a month because of my toxic attitude. People keep coming and leaving, and I search for another replacement leaving behind moment we had together thinking that it was the best life to live, until it started to hurt me slowly and making me feeling like am dominated by an evil spirit.
    It is unexplainable how my instinct lead me to King Omituko love solution with this email: |omitukolovesolution@gmail.com| when the future was playing some tricks on me after I was conned by some known spell doctors. I never felt so happy until I tasted the powers of Omituko love spell. Contacting him for help really changed my life and liberated me from emotional bondage. I have now found true love and we have been dating for over 6 months, that’s why am sharing this touchy review. His love spell is simply amazing.

  34. Thank you for your miracle Doctor Osemu Okpamen

    This article is dedicated to the Doctor Osemu Okpamen. I have been married with my wife for 5 years and recently she broke up with me and it hurt me deeply when she told me to leave her alone and that she does not love me anymore when i was always faithful and honest to her. I tried all the ways to get her back buying her what she wants like i always did and she still left me heart broken and she even has a new boyfriend which destroyed me even more until a friend of mine from high school directed me to this genuine spell Doctor called Osemu Okpamen. This man changed my life completely. I followed everything he told me to do and my wife came back begging for me back. I was stunned everything happened exactly like he told me. I had faith in everything he told me and everything was true. Also he was there every moment until i got my happiness back and he also provides spells that cures impotence, bareness, diseases such as HIV/AID E.T.C You can contact him via email at { Doctorokpamenspelltemple@yahoo.com } or visit his website http://www.doctorokpamenspells.com. He will help you in anything you need and quick to answer once you contact him or call me for more info +1 (914)-517-3229...
