What I Do

« The Mother of All STORY Updates | Main | Wednesday Morning Run-Down »


I like this! It takes a great deal to bring me down. And when I am, I don't stay there long. If I don't get up, then you know I died.

I remember that quote from my Liberty days when Dr. Falwell would give the "Do not quit" Message at the first chapel service of the semester. I love it and have used it a lot through the years.

Goodness, Ben. This might be one of the most depressing things I've ever considered.

Yet, it's strangely encouraging.

Off to ponder...

Thank you. Needed to read this today.

If this is personal — hang in there. My mentor gave me this great advice, "While in the dark or during change of seasons, do not change your mind and/or make major decisions that you've made in the light."

If this is an encouragement to others — thanks. Love it!

Needed this today - thanks Ben

i do believe this is a falwell quote

thanks for the feedback

Good ole Dr. Falwell! I have that written down - only he would say what it takes to 'discourage' him (while rolling his 'r's a little bit in discourage)...

Thanks Ben. I told my wife the other night that life might be easier if I could just resist the urge to dream...

Then I told her my take on Jeremiah 20:9: "I would quit if I could, but there's a nuclear reactor inside of me that keeps building up energy that I've got to let out."

Thanks again Ben for feeding my dream habit.

the only difference between a dream and a curse is the outcome. until then, they feel exactly alike

"the only difference between a dream and a curse is the outcome. until then, they feel exactly alike"

That's cold water in the face...

I wonder what percentage of dreamers actually see their dream become reality... ?

thanks sir, this was much needed today!

man, dude, i've lost count of the days when i've wanted to stop everything (sometimes I do) and i doubted whether what I was doing was making a difference, then i met people face to face and got feedback...i keep pressing on...i never imagined i'd work so hard in my pajamas...

off subject (a bit), but there's a door opening in your text so here goes "the ask"

would you consider posting a blog of your "favorite" or "top" blogs?

if you've already done this recently, i apologize...just added you to reader and probably missed it.
