Good Evening Everyone,
I have been a person, like many of you – who have always did things, for the most part for the greater good of everyone else. Even if it meant putting off doing what I needed to do for myself. As I look at the world with what appears to be my ‘almost halfway point,’ I want each and every one of you to do something for me. NO! No, not me, but for yourselves.
I want you take this seriously – do think about the one thing that you need to do or really want to do before you leave this world, and I want you to make a SERIOUS effort to do it. We all put things off due to life events, lack of opportunities, being scare, self-doubt, or whatever. NO MORE. I want you to go out and make an honest effort to do ONE THING, that really moves you. The one thing you feel that if you don’t do before you die, you would feel like you have wasted your time.
It doesn’t matter whether or not you succeed, the objective is to DO SOMETHING. But, if by chance you do make it…then share that success and spread that joy to someone else who needs some encouragement and just a little bit of faith. I charge everyone, who reads to this passage. Please, ‘just do something.’ And let us know how it turns out.
So, since I am making this request, I think that it’s only fair to get the ball rolling. For years, no, more like decades, I have only truly wanted to do three things with my life. One of them, is to be a writer. I don’t want to just churn out anything, but to be the best novelist I can be. I have half written articles, some are done, stories I have started and not completed. Poetry I have yet to publish [but I expect everyone to buy at least one copy when I do, 🙂 ]. Bottom line, I need to do this to be at peace within myself and for myself. No one else, but me. So, there you have it. This is ‘my just one thing – of many.’
What’s yours? 🙂

Lifevis short chase your goals and dreams. I am not an artist, but I love the arts.+10April 12, 2017 at 11:52 am #8432Mask AppealParticipant
I echo those sentiments
Just do it!
Fortunately for me I have always and still remain to pursue those ambitious dreams and goals that my heart desire. The one thing that I have learned over the years is that, you dont know the result of your pursuit, but regardless of the result it is the journey that makes it beautiful. One of my greatest fear is swallowing the bitter taste of regret, while saying I wish I would have. The only key that opens the door of changing the future is present.+8April 13, 2017 at 7:30 pm #8564Charles WatersParticipant

Good Evening/Morning Everyone!
Just checking in…and I am working on my one thing of many. I have gotten back into the habit of late nights trying to write before I fall asleep on the computer and everything looks like this: wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. hahahahaha!
How is everyone else doing?+2May 8, 2017 at 1:29 am #9750Mask AppealParticipant
We are on the same accord with the late night operation. The tranquility of the late night silence has always been my sanctuary.
The status of my one thing is that it is a constant work in progress.+2
