Quick Thinking - I Would Like To Be

These are the kind of articles I love to read. To still see goodness in the land of the living brings a smile to my face. Okay, enough sap, but please read the article. You won't regret it.

Restored Sunshine now has a Facebook page. You can view it by going here. I'm very excited. This page will just be a place where you can drop a friendly note to anyone or say things like, Thanks to the guy who kept the elevator door opened for me. It meant a lot, thanks!

I know it makes me feel good when I have helped someone else. Or that someone thanks for something I did. I didn't do it for the thank-you, but it doesn't mean I don't appreciate when someone takes the time to say thanks.

So, be that person. Say thank you and "restore" someone's day.

In case you were wondering, this is just Day One of the ideas I have swirling in my brain. I hope you all follow me on this journey.

Thanks for taking the time to do so now!

So, I've Said it Before...

I know I've said the following before, but never have I had it with such conviction. Restored Sunshine is finally going to take off. You will soon be able to be a fan on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.

So, what is going on you may ask. Since I've come back from Mexico I've been drifting. I haven't been very sure of what I've wanted to do and quite frankly scared to embark on anything else. That is not the norm for me. Sure I get scared of doing new things, but usually I enjoy a new adventure. My usual MO is to jump in feet first and then take a look around.

Thankfully though, I've been reading several books and my pastor has been preaching a series on Bridges and the risk involved. That's what I need to do, take a risk. As I watched a hockey game this became even more clear. The winning team had not only made the most goals, but it had taken the most shots at the goal. For their 122 shots at the goal they only had 4 go in, but the other team only had 110 shots and only 1 go in the goal.

I find this true with life. Sure, because of the risks I'm taking I have every chance of failing, but if I don't try, then I'll never succeed. There is nothing to say that this new venture won't be a success. Maybe this is finally me finding my purpose and passion. The truth is I'm okay with it failing because my worst fear is not failure, but a wasted life.

I will make the most of this life while I'm here and do what I can with what God has given me. So, today, which is also a Monday, I present to you the future, my future, which will include a new company, new project, and new idea: Restored Sunshine.
