i am courageous. i will not give up. step by step my courage grows deeper and stronger. i embrace the new and unknown. my courage makes me brave. i explore what iis possible without hesitation. the wisdom of others inspires me daily. i have the courage to let go of who i am for who i can become. ever onward!...my strenght and resolve run deeep. i boldly ask for what i want. i surround myself with courageous and passionate people. i follow my heart. i give myself permission to be courageous. i act in spite of my fears. i choose to live filled with courage. i look ahead and go for it. i am no longer afraid. i choose to be powerful.
the above affirmation is written on a blanket it's called an affirmawrap these blankets came into the office earlier this month and the office crew went crazy for them we didn't know they were coming for our transformation team ordered them for fundraising for our move to our new church of course i had to get girlfriend M one in her favorite color purple and affirmation of abundance i gift wrapped it and gave it to her immediately, but it wasn't until last nite that she finally opened it she was estatic she loved the blanket as much as i did i bought me the one on courage anyhows it was a great Christmas gift that came in unexpectedly i had already bought her a book for the holiday, but this was even better there are other affirmawraps and i hope to also buy the one on serenity don't know where our transformation team ordered these, but way to go!

Boise State U ...i was reading the sports page this morn on aol reading about BSU and their bowl game coming up it brought back memories of when i was there i attended BSU for a year this is when i really got into photography taking 2 black & white classes that was the good thing that came out of it i remember i was so gun ho about going to school, now it seems almost secondary i didn't know what i wanted to study at the time so i was doing the requirements plus some Boise is a nice little town and the state beautiful in its uniqueness the decision i made to leave there was a good one, but i wouldn't realize that til much later not that heading to California was a whole lot better, but all part of the journey my journey in life i was wondering for a moment where would i be if i had stayed and completed my degree now i still desire to complete my degree or two, but it isn't as pressing now i have more perserverence, patience and durability to complete that journey the journey of school again is coming together this next year for sure funny how my interest has changed as well i have changed much, but i'd like to go back to more of my spunk i had back then does age really mellow you it seems it has for me anyways....
