Colonel Sanders

Published October 11, 2019 by tindertender

At age 5 his father died.

At age 16 he quit school.

At age 17 he had already lost four jobs.

At age 18 he got married.

Between ages 18 and 22, he was a railroad conductor and failed.

He joined the army and washed out there.

He applied for law school, he was rejected.

He became an insurance sales man and failed again.

At age 19 he became a father.

At age 20 his wife left him and took their baby daughter.

He became a cook and dishwasher in a small cafe.

He failed in an attempt to kidnap his own daughter, and eventually he convinced his wife to return home.

At age 65 he retired.

On the 1st day of retirement he received a check from the Government for $105.

He felt that the Government was saying that he couldn’t provide for himself.

He decided to commit suicide, life wasn’t worth living anymore; he had failed so much.

He sat under a tree writing his will, but instead, he wrote what he would have accomplished with his life. He realized there was much more that he hadn’t yet done. There was one thing he could do better than anyone he knew. And that was how to cook.

So he borrowed $87 against his check and bought and fried up some chicken using his recipe, and went door to door to sell them to his neighbors in Kentucky.

Remember, at age 65 he was ready to commit suicide.

But at age 88 Colonel Sanders, founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) Empire was a billionaire.

Moral of the story: It’s never too late to start all over.

MOST IMPORTANLY, IT’S ALL ABOUT YOUR ATTITUDE. NEVER GIVE UP NO MATTER HOW HARD IT GETS.

You have what it takes to be successful. Go for it and make a difference.

Never Giving Up

I may not be cussing the whole time. I fluctuate between swearing, loving compassion, sobbing, and frankly just deciding to be the best version of myself despite the pain, and hoping in this effort to be more than I’ve ever been before somehow, help my brothers and sisters do the same.

Growth Is Not Comfortable

Some periods of our growth are so confusing that we don’t even recognize that growth is happening. We may feel hostile or angry or weepy and hysterical, or we may feel depressed. It would never occur to us, unless we stumbled on a book or a person who explained to us, that we were in fact in the process of change, of actually becoming larger, spiritually, than we were before.

Whenever we grow, we tend to feel it, as a young seed must feel the weight and inertia of the earth as it seeks to break out of its shell on its way to becoming a plant. Often the feeling is anything but pleasant. But what is most unpleasant is the not knowing what is happening.

Those long periods when something inside ourselves seems to be waiting, holding its breath, unsure about what the next step should be, eventually become the periods we wait for, for it is in those periods that we realize that we are being prepared for the next phase of our life and that, a new level is about to be revealed.

You Have The Power

Published September 8, 2019 by tindertender

Apparently countries worldwide are bowing to the authority of the USA. Weather manipulation has been happening all over the world (by multiple countries), suffering has been intentionally created.

Why are the other countries Participating, rather than doing something to stop it? Are they in cahoots with them? Is this a plan to amass wealth and start over? Perhaps this is it … or perhaps they are afraid.

Greed and need for power are a virus in the minds of men, and in the minds of those who are puppeting them. We are all suffering a mental illness, only a few see it, understand it, and know the origins.

Educate yourselves. Stop burying your heads in the sand. At least if you see it coming you’ll have an opportunity to fully love with the time you have left, rather than feed the pain and anger which give these massacrers power.

Claim your life and demand they stop making you and yours sick. Perhaps one day you will recognize that all humans are your brothers and sisters, and the animals are under your care, just as much as those who lay claim to that.

Live dammit! Stand up and claim the love that has been stolen from your heart and mind, replaced by chaos and suffering. This Love is your right! Kick the suffer bringers to the curb and move on … there may still be time to kick chaos’ ass.

And by this I mean, reclaim your energy and pour it into love … loving your neighbor, loving the people you pass on the street by sharing a smile, a helping hand. These are your family … do you not recognize them?

You can exit this world bearing the pain of it, or you can release it and build something entirely different which will accompany you on your way out … and what you will leave behind will be much better than the ‘given’ of current reality.

You have the Power, it is in your mind, it is in your heart, and it is NOT anger, or need for revenge.

Win or Lose? It’s a Choice.
