Those three words were on an advertisement for a new attraction in town, “Escape the Ordinary”. The brochure I had picked up caught my eye as I was getting out of my car.
“Escape” from what we do every day, “the Ordinary”.
I started thinking about that statement and realized, I don’t like it….at all. We do too much escaping the ordinary, don’t we?

Each of the trees were green and strong. Oaks they were and strength was something they were proud of. The trees talked with one another and compared how strong they were.
A small acorn grew and grew until it had become a young tree. His branches were green and wide. He had the tallest branches and greenest leaves of all the young trees.

It’s the truth. I don’t have a masters in the English language. In fact, I hated English class. I’m not a huge presence on social media. Often times, I’m not sure what’s going on. I’m not Max Lucado (my FAVORITE author). In fact, I feel like he’s Picasso and I’m using a box of crayons.
But, you know what? It doesn’t matter. I’ve discovererd I have a “little” talent so I’m gonna use it the best that I can. I know I can help someone and I know I will. I’ve also found that my harshest critic is me. I want everything perfect, but I know it probably never will be.

The photo above is my four year old cousin Liam right before he drew out the name of the winner of the $30 gift card. Congratulations to Jon Cagle who learned about the contest through the Facebook group “30 days of Hustle”, sponsored by author and blogger Jon Acuff (www.acuff.me).
The contest to name my website was awesome! There is nothing better than to hand an idea over to great creative people to see what they can come up with. Thirty seven different website names were submitted. It was a tremendous success. I thank everyone who submitted an idea and even the ones that just thought about it.
I ended up choosing a name I came up with before the contest. I will reveal the name of my site in the coming months.
We each have dreams. We have things we know within our heart that we were designed to do. When we were kids, we believed in those dreams. Then “experts” told us to wise up and face reality. Well, I disagree. You know who I think has it right? Liam. That’s right. Look at the picture again of Liam right before he drew out the winning name. He believes he can do anything? And you know what, I believe he can too.
Let’s be more like Liam.
