Get Your Hands Dirty!

Before Nike came up with their slogan 26 years ago, our dad being a Navy vet always told us to just do it when we had doubts in ourselves. I wished he would have coined that phrase!

I have seen and read quite a few posting on positive thoughts and posts on believing in yourself. At times our greatest challenges in life are conquering our fears and demons. We are afraid of rejection and how it makes us feel, afraid to put ourselves on the stage with the spotlight shinning on us. We may learn some new skills from Hard School Knocks or institution but we don’t use them because the fear or shyness surfaces up. Maybe we do use them behind closed doors Rocky-Balboa-Quotes-Go-For-Itso that no one will make fun of us. I am an advocate of Moving Forward and one of the most important quotes you will ever hear or read is from Rocky Balboa last fight movie in 2006. This one inspirational quote says it all.

Never give up on yourself because when you turn the negative encouragement  or words and turn them into positive enlightenment for yourself, there is no telling what you might accomplish.

I will put myself on this stage, and when you see some of the photos, -I am not Gay! Yes, I sew and quite well infact.

VisualBasic MathIn life we may come across those that say we can’t do something, You can’t do this or that, you don’t even know how to do it. But. me being me, I always liked proving them wrong. If you don’t know how to do something, then learn.

WebDesignWhat if you wanted to try and build your own Website from the ground up. Take a chance and just do it. You might amaze yourself. You have to take risks that get us out of our comfort zone!

Maybe you want to be able to draft you new home or you have an idea for new mechanical part that could change the world. I say, Get your hands dirty.

DrawingWhat about drawing, take the plunge and doodle, there is no one looking at you or judging you. The only one judging you is you!

Most know I have Complex Regional Syndrome which affects the nerves with shooting pain but do I let that stop me. No!

I love the piano and although I may never be able to play the piano like I once did or my guitar, with technology and software you can find an alternate platform to be creative. I recently found a virtual piano for the PC, will take me time to learn how to use it correctly but you have to try and press forward.
