Re-inventing myself...

Over the span of my career I have found that I need to re-invent myself. This realization has come to me every few years in my life. Early on in my career I was very interested in Broadway and spent all of my time focusing on that goal. Then I started concertizing along with pursuing the Great White Way! This was great for a while except it took more and more of my time searching for work. In fact, the only thing that was constant in my life was looking for a job. For a while that was enough. That situation has taught me a great deal. For instance, I am not afraid of being out of work. Now I feel like I am ready for another change.

We are living in a very unique time in the US. This time will be written about in the text books of the future. The only thing constant is change. I feel well prepared to deal with this time in life. I will still be singing as much as I can, however, due to the current economic climate I am pursuing many other avenues to support my beautiful family. Albert Einstein said " the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result." It's time for me to find another way to support my family. I'll keep you posted on how it is going!

Talk to you soon.

God bless!

To each his, or, her own

Thanks for your great comments on my facebook page over the past few days. It is great to get thought provoking views from friends. Keep it up!

This leads me to say how thankful I am that I have such great friends that will give me their honest heartfelt opinions on the comments I make as I share with you what's going on in my little world. One or two friends led me to some reviews of the the book "The Secret." The reviews were very interesting. Thanks! I hope all of you know that, since my faith and my opinion is based on biblical teaching, I will always do my best to comment from those principles. Through GOD all things are possible!

That being said, "positive thinking," is a fabulous tool to move ourselves forward through this life. Far too many people dwell in the past, or, on the negative! "I can't do this, or, I can't do that." I Can't, is a thought based in fear or worry. Christ said, "Who of you, by worrying, can add a single hour to his life." (Matthew 6:27) It is my opinion that we are to be living in the present and planning for our great reward in the future! Also, we are here to help each other, I feel we ALL need to be paying more attention to what's going on around us. Get out and do something to help others achieve what they want and you will soon be achieving what you want.

God Bless!

God and me...

Today I want to speak with you about my beliefs. This is an attempt for you to know more about me. I've been speaking recently about keeping a positive attitude. In staying as positive as possible and using the Law of Attraction as it relates to the universe I want to be clear. It is my belief that God created the universe.

Further, I believe that we are created in His likeness for His pleasure. I believe He communicates with us and He longs for us to communicate with Him. In his book, "Hearing God," Larry Kreider says, "we can expect God to speak to us... we'll find that our ears must be tuned to hear Him."

I find that if I spend some time each day trying to speak with and hear God my day goes better. Perhaps you will have the same result! Do something nice for someone today and have a great day!

"This Is A Magnificent Universe!" - Be careful what you ask for, ok?

My inspiration today comes directly from "The Secret," the book by Rhonda Byrne. In the pages of this guide she uses many spiritual and inspirational teachers to lead us all closer to the understanding of this wonderful truth, This Is A Magnificent Universe! Here it is Marci Shimoff, once again, that reminds us of a quote from the great Albert Einstein.

"The most important question any human being can ask themselves is, 'Is this a friendly universe?" - Albert Einstein

It is then Ms. Byrne that adds "knowing the law of attraction, the only answer to give is, Yes, the universe is friendly. Why? Because when you answer in this way, by the law of attraction you must experience that."

So, let's be careful out there and only put out the good stuff! That way all that can come back to us is the Good Stuff! Talk to you tomorrow!

God Bless!

Staying Positive!

Staying positive in the tough times is easier said than done. Does anyone else have this problem? I sometimes get bogged down with the little things. I'm always learning how to let go and and let God take care something else. I will over come this! I will conquer this challenge by continuing to send positive thoughts of gratitude, joy, peace, and LOVE! You will too!

I'm going to continue to share with everyone on a daily basis from various "Gurus" on the subject of inspiration. Eventually I will also be recommending programs by some of these "Gurus," as well as, some products that I have tried and found to be useful and helpful in my own quest to be a positive influence our society. I hope you will find this practice of mine helpful and perhaps useful as well!

"Once you begin to understand and truly master your thoughts and feelings, That's when you see how you create your own reality." Marci Shimoff

Feeling Grateful!

Considering, the challenging time in which we live, today I find myself feeling grateful. Grateful for my relationship with God! Grateful for my family and friends. Grateful for my home. Grateful that, as I awake, I am anxiously filled with love and joy to face the coming day. Grateful that I am an American! Grateful, that, for now at least, as an americans I am free.

I challenge you today and everyday to think only positive thoughts. Only thoughts of love and gratitude for even the smallest of things. Be well and God Bless! -- Mark

"It is the combination of thought and Love which forms the irresistible force of the law of attraction." -- Charles Haanel

Today I find myself in Huntington WV. I am here to attend a dedication of a Running Track. It's not just any running track. This track is being dedicated to Dr. Paul Ambrose. Dr. Paul died on the plane that crashed into the Pentegon on 9/11. He was senior clinical advisor with the Office of the Surgeon General who worked toward improving health care in his country with a special focus on minorities. His parents, Ken and Sharon, live here in Huntington, WV and these types of programs (running tracks in rural areas to enable people to become more physically fit) were what Paul focused on. This particular project is a 26 mile bicycle and pedestrian track and is called the Paul Ambrose Trail for Health

His mother and father were key in getting this project done. These loving parents have been able to take up the cause that Paul worked for as their own and thereby turned this tragedy into great gain for everyone. I was very honored to be asked to come and be a part of the dedication.
