side notes  
 A question imposed itself in my thoughts today, "Are you living to your full potential?"  With recent events circulating around in the media (heath ledger, britney spears, rapings, abuse, fraud, scams and etc.)  and taking a introspective look at life in general..I realize half of us aren't. That isn't neccessarily a terrible thing, some of us are at a place in our life where we are content with our current state of mind. Some of us don't want to take the risk to progress or strive for more when they've been so acquainted with what they already know or have accumulated. 

Throughout my life I've never been compliant on settling for the ordinary. Not the common faux philosophies, not the belief of words from others, not in extraordinary faith from the books. I've always read the fineprint. I'm beginning to look at the bigger picture and want more for not only myself, but for my family, and my community. I want to lay down this blueprint of complete excellence so when I procreate my children will want the same, if not..even better. 

This entry of sidenotes is just reassurance provided with inspiration for people to encompass all! Not just some! Not to quote the quirky military slogan, but damnit.."Be all you can be" and most importantly do what makes you feel comfortable and happy. 

Some of you may view this and already be forming your tackless and tasteless thoughts and opinions about me and my train of thought. And for that ..I surrender two twin middle fingers because once again, my thoughts overstand you. My train of thought is too deep for you simple minded folks. Go watch jeopardy and get a bang out of life!

I was in Barnes and Nobles the other day and came across:

Am I the only one who didn't know that Jill Scott had a book of her words out? It's a great book, and in it she states how we should write daily. I really want to write daily again like I used to and I found this to be a fantastic inspiration.
