“There’ll be two dates on your tombstone and all your friends will read ’em but all that’s gonna matter is that little dash between ’em.”

— Kevin Welch

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Today’s thought for the day comes from a couple of paragraphs from a book I am reading called, “When the game is over it all goes back in the box.” by John Ortberg. 

In it, he talks about the following.  “You arrived on this planet one day without being consulted ahead of time.  Ready or not here you came.  You did not get to vote on your parents, your birthplace, your family order, or your DNA.  All of these were chosen for you.  You were made the bearer of a human soul, created in the image of God, destined for eternal existence. 

You may be very happy about having entered the world, or you may feel that your life is a crushing burden.  But you should know this: God is very pleased that you exist.  He “knit you together in your mother’s womb.” That year when you were born is one of his favorite years. 

We don’t have much say about when we will die.  This is part of what gives life its urgent value.  We have one shot at it. 

That brings us to the great question:  What are you going to do with your dash?  What will you do with the turns you get to play the game?  That little dash is yours to spend: to shape character, to give allegiance, to chose hope or cynicism, to seize initiative or resign to passivity; to grow or stagnate, to be known or to hide.  

And now – ready or not – you have been given a turn.  The bell has sounded.  It’s your race now.  What will you do with your dash?”

Happy Monday! TGIM!  Let’s make the most of that DASH today and every day!

From Matt

I hope you are a little excited about today because I am.

It is a brand spanking new super fresh day and a great fresh start to your week and to your life today.  It’s Monday!

For instance, you do not know what this day holds for you.  Do you?  Can you predict the future of how many more days you will live on this planet?  Last time I checked I did not know anyone who knew exactly how many more days they had.  So this day and this moment is all we have right?  Are you with me?

So today STEP into your most authentic self and be your most awesome self.  Be who you were born to be.

Enjoy the day.

Keep on doing your thing and exercising and winning in life.

You have greatness within you!


1) I have greatness within me.
2) I give to those around me.
3) I am becoming the best that I can be.

The journey…


“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” — LAO TZU

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:  Have you ever thought about an impossible task before you and been paralyzed by fear?  Sometimes you just need to take the next best step toward that goal or task.  There is always a way or a step in the right direction. 

I would like to highlight my friend’s blog that has a little to do with this subject.  Click here to read it and be inspired. 

Happy Monday!  Let’s put our best foot forward and take some positive steps in the right direction in the journey of our lives. 


I rejoice in the journey that is before me.  
2) I am divinely guided and supported in my journey. 
3) The possibilities of my journey are endless. 

Your Monday morning thoughts…
