what matters

Over the years I have come to believe that our thoughts determine our actions and our actions determine our results. The six phrases I have listed above are the thoughts that I go back to over and over again, especially when times are tough or I feel like I’m losing my way. In my experience dreams are the goals that our subconscious mind is directing us to achieve. Believing in yourself is the necessary courage that it takes to pursue those goals. Often the dreams that we have involve doing something that you love. Whatever that is, it should be a part of your life, whether it is a profession or just a hobby. No matter what you do, there will be trials and tribulations that can overwhelm, but the focus on having fun no matter what the circumstances, is good for your brain and good for everyone else around you. I also believe that doing something for someone other than yourself and giving back to the community will reap rewards far beyond what you give. Finally, if it is important to you, then never give up. Life is all about the journey and the satisfaction of knowing that you never quit on yourself.


Steve Pool Comedy ! ?

You may have noticed that I have not added to the blog very much over the past couple of months. As many of you know it's been a challenging time for me, in a lot of ways. But now I'm finally feeling that I’m getting my feet underneath me again and I thought I'd get started with some comedy. Now I'm not a comedian, so imagine my surprise when I found out that there is an entire comedy troupe in Seattle calling themselves the Steve Pool Comedy Review. Despite the fact that they didn't run this past me before hand, I was still intrigued. So I went to see them. Catch the whole story in the blog.
