When I was in foster care, there was this moment that was a bang to my head – literally.

Everyone was getting ready to go out one night and I stepped out the front door. A second later there was a big bang, but what was it you may ask? First let me tell you a little about the house. The house was off the ground and steps led up to the front door. There were no no railings on the steps and next to the steps was a big metal tank, water or something.

Ok, now that you know a little about the house, let’s get back to the big bang.  After I stepped out the front door, I slipped on my jacket that  I had stupidly left on the second to top step. When I slipped, I fell head first right into the metal tank.

Out comes everyone to see what’s going on. They see me lying the behind the tank temporally unconscious. They lift me up and see that I have blood gushing out of my face right of my eye.

They rushed me inside to clean me up and see how bad it was. They ended up having to take me to the emergency room, where I got stitches to close up the opening above my eye. I made it of course or I wouldn’t be here today writing this blog and living my awesome life. Could I be a ghost haunting the world with peace?

The reason I told this story to tell you that the stupid mistake I made almost came back and really bit me in the butt and took my life. Stop doing the stupid/ridiculous things in your life and start living your life to the greatest it can be led. People today are getting themselves into bad things that ruins you are life even more every day. Many drink to much, do bad drugs, smoke, complain all the time how others are ruining your life and more.

Time to get off your butt and start going after the life you always wanted, while busting through the obstacles trying to stand in your way.

This story I shared with you above,  scared the crap out of me and got me thinking about my life. Squeak your wheels and show the world that nothing can stand in your way of climbing the mountain of life!

Helping/Making a Difference in the Community

Do you understand that how you help your community, is what helps this world go round?

There are many different causes and people in the community that could use help. Are you helping with anything, cancer causes, helping people with disabilities, helping children, etc?

I put on The Second Annual Strike Against Cancer event on April 6. This was a great event that raised $546 to help many in our community battling cancer. The attendance was only about 25 which could have been a better number. We did a 50/50, door prize drawing, drawing for homemade cupcakes and of course we bowled and struck against cancer. Next year this will be an even bigger and better event and I know you will show up.

You need to understand the importance of getting off your butt and helping others. We can all make a difference in this world.  Get up and make that difference. You can do things to help as simple as coming to walk the track at Relay For Life/Checking out all the booths. I am not saying that you need to kill yourself doing all kinds of fundraisers, but do something every month to make a difference somewhere in our community.

This is the end of excuses and it is time to start Squeaking Your Wheels!
