The greatest day

of your life is the one on

which you decide your life

is your own. The gift of life

is yours - it is an amazing

journey - and you get to

determine the quality of it.

Live the next five years on

purpose. Now is the time.

Imagine the possibilities.

Go places, have adventures,

make a real difference, do

what you love. Follow your

dreams, they know the way.

"Dan Zadra"

A book simply with the number "5" as the title with a sub heading that reads
"Where will you be five years from today?"
caught my attention when I put it up for sale as apart of our new merchandise for Thanksgiving season at Starbucks. We only received two copies and I bought both of them. One for me and one for Alex.

Friday Night, Alex and I went to my Starbucks and just
C H I L L E D.

We had an awesome conversation which brings me to why I bought this book. We wanted to write a song. We didn't know what we wanted to write the song about until I started to unload my feelings on her. Everything that I have been feeling for the past couple of days. ((hence my quote,unquote "depressing/emo" statuses.)) She started to write ideas that spurred from our conversation in a random blank journal. We came up with an idea...

"The pain from a RISK taken and failed will last but for just a season. The regret from not ever taking that RISK will be forever."

That brought me back to when I first read Dan Zadra's quote as I put the book on the shelf. Life is happening now. And right now is a good time. "5" is a book about life. A book that asks you the simple question: "Where will you be five years from today?"

This is your life, your one-and-only life. Over the
next five years, what do you really want to do? What
do you really want to have? What do your really want
to be? Where do you really want to go? There are no
rules here. this is not a work book, it's a play book.
This is not a "here's how" book, it's a "why not?"

book. So be daring, be bold and be true to yourself!

I have always been asked the question "Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?" And I intend on finding the answer and taking "that" risk. All with the focus and intent of staying in God's will and not my own.

I want to make my life count.
I don't want to regret not taking that risk.
I will dream and I will dream BIG! ((why not?))







Can you tell that I like this book? And all I have done is skimmed it. So go to Starbucks and get this book. I will leave you with one last thought:

You will never have more time that you do right now.

Many of these quotes in this post were written by "Dan Zadra"
Thanks Dan.

Question #3

What is the best/favorite way that YOU like to worship God?*

And don't tell me what I wanna hear.
Be Real. 
If the way you worship best is serving others then say that rather than "Oh lifting my hands in the air... " ((not that doing that is bad in any way shape or form))

Question #2

This may sound like a stupid question and very shocking for some people that I may be asking it. But look at this question as if someone you never knew who just became a new Christian came up to you and asked you.

"What is so bad about cursing or swearing?" "What is so bad about saying 'bad' words?"

Question #1

Why do we as human being feel we must look, act, be a certain way?
