Change of plans?

You have everything planned out, you know what you want to do, where you want to live, and a general idea of where you want to work.

Does that sound like you?

If it does you may want to rethink it.

Life hits detours and you can’t really plan for those. Unless of course, you are psychic. And you have to be ok with them.


That really is the only way to move forward with life.

Would you rather be moving horizontally or would you rather be moving upward?

The choice is yours and the people around you may not agree to it but should that matter?

I have had a lot happen in the past few weeks. Besides getting older, I’ve also pushed people away. And not on purpose!

I’ve also given some stronger thought on what the heck I wanted to do with my life. I am blessed to have a number of routes to proceed down.

I could take the paracycling road.

I could take the road of corporate America.

I could take the road of being an inspiration to others who are struggling.

I was taking the road of Corporate America but it is getting me nowhere. So do I change plans?

The choice is yours of which path to take. Make mistakes but move forward.

Change plans if necessary.

  1. To my “cyber-friends/pals” around the world….

    Thanks for the follow/link/like/reblog and/or kind thought(s)

    Hi everyone

    I do really appreciate your liking, linking to and/or following this
    blog (and “writing in”), so “thanks to YOU all for the thanx” (in thought)

    Though my family and close friends say it would be far more entertaining
    with a video-camera* in the “real world”, rather than in cyberspace!)
    * By the way, do they still make them in today’s ever-faster changing
    world..or is it all done with mobile phones?

    (get with the times now,”luddite”* c – it should be a smart phone)

    * or so I was often called by my “my techno-geek” friend, Bill (“the gonk”)

    “total non-techno” c (who doesn’t possess a mobile phone, after a rather
    eventful’ experience some years back, whilst trying to walk, talk and
    chew gum at the same time) #

    Now back to the message I was posting before I got distracted

    enjoy anyway

    “totally impulsive” c



    I’ve had many many hundreds of thousands (even “zillions”) of comments
    on my various other WordPress blogs at
    in recent years …true!). A few of my blogs went “balistically viral” a
    few years back and I got swamped with comments on my various blogs… so
    had to close them all off.

    Obsessive or WHAT! Am really pleased you are enjoying my writings, as
    the reason I write is to share.

    Though I’m rather “driven”, I still get really, really fatigued (there’s
    a few books there). So sorry can’t reply individually to all you good
    people scattered around the planet. As mentioned (stop repeating
    yourself, c – bad writing…otherwise the first signs of approaching
    senility!), I was unable to keep up with the comments and was spending
    entire days just on replies on my various blog pages, so had to close
    them off on all of my blogs, except for one or two of particular
    interest to me.



    Sorry and hope you can understand.

    “As we live and move and have our being, so from this vision, we create
    heaven in our own lives… and perhaps even heaven on earth.”
    – craig (as inspired by Acts 17:28 and the words of Felicia Searcy)

    “Aim at the earth and you may not get off the ground.a
    “Aim at the stars and you may reach the moon.”
    “Aim at heaven and you’ll have earth thrown in…
    and you may even hit the stars.”
    – craig (as inspired by the famous quote by CS Lewis – 24th May 2012)

    “When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with
    your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will
    always long to return.”
    – Leonardo da Vinci

    When (or if ever) you arrive in heaven, let faith, hope and love be the
    wings that carried you there.”

    – as adapted from the inspiring words of Jonathan Edwards, former
    minister in New England, Massachusetts

    “The Greatest Race: Living by (with) faith, hope and love is the highest
    podium any person can reach, God’s podium that anyone stand on.”
    – c

    “Having pursued the goals, the dreams set before us and run the race
    with persistence and endurance, after giving it all. Then one day
    standing on the summit of life, breathing in the pure sweet oxygen of
    achievement, totally satisfied in running the greatest race, the race of
    life one that ANYONE can run and win.”


    “If a man is called to be a street-sweeper,
    he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted,
    or Beethoven composed music, or
    Shakespeare wrote poetry.
    He should sweep streets so well
    that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say,
    here lived a great street sweeper
    who did his job well.”
    – Dr Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Instead of trying to reply to each one of you, I’ll just keep on writing
    (which I’m often told is what is “safest” for me!)

    “If the doctor told me I had six minutes to live, I’d type a little faster.”

    The various books* that Craig “felt inspired to write” are available at

    All proceeds go to the elderly, needy, infirm and mentally challenged – ME!

    “I wish you well on a rainy day
    I wish you rainbows to brighten your day
    To feel your quiet moments with a special kind of warmth
    to remind you that happiness can happen
    when you least expect it.

    I wish you rainbows to make you laugh and smile
    to show you the simple beauty of life
    and to give you the magic of dreams come true.

    I wish you rainbows
    I wish you well.”

    – Larry S. Chengges

    ”Since I can never see your face,
    And never shake you by the hand,
    I send my soul through time and space
    To greet you. You will understand.”

    – James Elroy Flecker (1884-1915
