Re-reading the quote below made me think of those in Turkey and Syria who are suffering from the recent earthquake that devastated their lives and the lives of many others around the world.
My Heart Goes Out to Everyone Suffering.
“Enjoy the special day celebrating life as a living, breathing, human being. No matter how screwed up things may seem, know that there are millions of others who’d love to trade places and to have your problems. That is something I have to remind myself of when disgruntled because the world isn’t working according to Wayne.”
The above quote came from a previous post that rooted in a blog that I sent to my publisher in 2018 to post for me while I was still inside the United States Federal Bureau of Prisons. #Happy Valentine’s Day | STRAIGHT FROM THE PEN.
Well, the world won’t work according to Wayne. That’s okay, because even though things don’t turn out as I prefer on some days, at least I continue to do the right thing and have succeeded at doing many good things throughout my life.
I also feel blessed for having people in my life who love and care for me and who are willing to help me to accomplish some of my goals. And for that I remain grateful and thank my Higher Power, whom I chose to call God, for blessing me with another day to celebrate.
Simple tasks are not always easy to figure out until I stop trying so hard. For instance, when posting YouTube and More last week, I wanted to refer everyone to my particular items for sale on Mercari, but failed to figure out the process I was sure existed.
Too Tired to Think!
Now I know and hope you will check out what I have to sell in the United States by following the link.
Somewhere in the horizon, I see a star that I am shooting for that I know I can reach if I stay focused and do not stop trying to succeed.
Is this the beginning of stardom, StraightfromthePen on YouTube? Maybe, once I learn more about how to use YouTube, and find a house to create a physical YouTube Studio inside of so that I can really focus on what I am doing. At this juncture I am in a learning curve and an experimental stage to learn what works and what does not.
