Dwayne's World

About a week ago, I made a comment to a dear friend who didn't take it well. They felt I was being too hard on them and treated them unfairly. Whereas that was NOT my intent, it reminded me that the message can often get lost in the delivery. Those of you that know me know that...
Pride. It can be a beautiful thing. It can keep you focused on goals and it can help you achieve what once may have seemed unachievable. But just like ice cream, cookies and cake, having too much can be bad for you. (Ok, can you tell I have a sweet tooth?) St. Augustine said it...
No matter how many years you live, life is short. We often spend too much time worrying about the wrong things....sometimes things that are totally out of our control. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not advocating ignoring things that concern you. What I'm saying is if something...
Ever meet someone who, no matter what you accomplish, always has something "non-positive" to say? I'm sure we all know at least one. Hopefully YOU'RE not that person to someone else. Why is that? Why do people want to rain on your parade? Is it out of spite? Hateration? Or is...

How big is your footprint? No, I'm not asking what size shoe you wear. I'm asking about your footprint...the impact (good or bad, but preferably good) you've made in someone's life.... Also, don't confuse a memory with a footprint. That delicious meal you had on Thanksgiving......
Sitting here thinking about this play called Life. From it's opening act until the final curtain call, its a tumultuous story filled with highs, lows, plot twists, laughs and tears. Although you are the star of your own play, it's not a one (wo)man show. There are co-stars,...
