We Have A Lot Of Catching Up To Do (Part Two)
"God willing and the creek don't rise..." (Note: Someday soon, I'll be sharing a bit about two wonderful women who used this expression before I began using it...) ... This will be the day that I go viral in a way that will make a positive difference
in a lot of lives.
With some, the positive difference experience will happen right away.
With others, it might take a little longer than right away but will still be happening very soon.
As you will see when it happens, part of the experience will be the coming true of a dream that began in 2013 -- and a considerable amount of it even before then by years and even decades.
Anyway, I would like to invite you to visit my last entry:
as we definitely DO have that (needing to play catch-up) going on!!!
The truth of the matter is that I had actually thought that I'd be writing the second part of this series much sooner. Just look at how far apart this entry is from the last one!
I mean that today is September 3, and my last entry was on August 21.
The last entry before that was made on May 4, 2016.
Of course, this hasn't been the last time that I've done anything with this website -- simply, the last time that I did anything with this section of it.
Anyway, here are a few of my goals:
1. Officially do the going-viral-of-my-dreams before the close of September 3, 2017.
2. Be back here tomorrow evening (September 4, 2017) to write and post the third part of this series.
3. Unless I can't get online, post a MINIMUM of something new in this section of this website at least once-a-week.
4. Continue to add new content to various parts of this website several times per month.
To sum it all up...................
I have a lot of loose ends to tie up as fast as I can -- yet, doing it as carefully as possible.
This reminds me of a friend who bought some property "as is" but didn't realize at the time how "as is" it was.
It's like something you might watch on I Love Lucy and laugh at (things like finding that the toilet doesn't work, buying a brand-new toilet -- which ends up not working because a lot of the plumbing has to be replaced -- and/or turning on the furnace and having your whole house fill up with smoke) -- but is actually ANYthing but funny in real life for the simple reason that it's costing her more money than she has.
This woman is one of the people I'm taking with me when I go viral tonight.
Just read a beautiful writing by an inspiring man who will be 72 this November. He's had a rough life and spent most of his younger years in this or that institution -- starting when he was a preschooler for the "crime" of being an-orphan-by-abandonment -- where he was repeatedly physically, sexually, verbally, and emotionally abused at the hands of various ones who were supposed to be taking care of him.
While all of this was going on, there were countless people in the state of Florida who could have stopped all of this from continuing to happen but weren't...some out of fear...some out of personal gain from not doing so...some who were in denial that this could be going on right here in America.
He didn't suffer alone but was one of hundreds of children and teens who suffered abuse -- and, in several cases, got
murdered -- over a period of a century, give or take, while hundreds of people (upstanding citizens) chose the easy way out of wearing blinders because they just didn't believe that it concerned them.
As an adult, he went through several failed marriages before finding his wife-for-life.
He's now married with children, grandchildren and furchildren, and he lives in his own home instead of in this or that institution.
But he hasn't forgotten where he came from to get to where he is today.
He has taken part in exposing the past while paving the way for a better future.
The story I read by him today was how he got the chance to encourage a woman to pursue her dreams of becoming a writer and, then, slipping away before he got caught leaving her the note.
Tonight, I want to go viral with the beginnings of introducing a growing number of people with dreams, needs, projects, talents waiting to be shared -- plus, I'm also going viral while writing my memoirs...funny ones...serious ones...inspiring ones...happy ones...sad ones...those about me...those about friends and loved ones with some of the events taking place even before I was born.
But, before all of this can happen most effectively, I need to bring some
of my blogs up-to-date and get other areas tightened up, too.
There are also stories I'm still writing that I want to be part of the grand opening.
To make a long story (somewhat)short(er).......
My work is cut out for me today and in need of your prayers, love, and positive thoughts.
That's all for now.
Part Three of this series will be posted tomorrow.......
