Never Lose Hope

If you’ve never heard Dr. Rick Rigsby, take a moment and listen to what he has to say. Goalcast’s recording of a speech he gave at the school where his father, a third-grade dropout, and worked as a cook …and it went viral.

His lesson is simple, yet powerful. Don’t let your circumstances define you. Don’t let labels that others put on you say who you are. If you fall down, take a moment, but get back up! What’s the problem with trying again? Keep learning. Keep loving. Keep moving forward.

I understand his philosophy. My own father dropped out of high school, yet I that he was one of the wisest men I ever knew.

Don’t want to track him down on Youtube? I’ve saved you a few steps.

Writing with TBI Challenges

Writing isn’t as glamorous as it may seem. There are long hours with no promise of success. You sweat. Dream. You claw your way from one page onto another. You pull words and together then delete others. It can be a challenging process.

Now try writing after suffering TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury).

That’s what Martin Johnson does. Read his guest post on Almost an Author, Writing with a Disability. You’ll want to cry. Then cheer. But one way or another, you’ll see the writing process differently. Thanks, Martin for sharing your journey. You can follow Martin on Twitter at @mtjohnson51.

 

 

Serving Others

Some blogs are so profound they touch your heart. Other blogs stay with you because of their simplicity and honesty.

Cory Lebovitz’s post falls into the category of the latter when writing about serving others.

Thank you, Cory, for reminding us that service isn’t for the lofty. It’s for us all.
