Welcome to this week’s Installment of my Twittering Tales participation for a weekly event from a fellow blogger at:

She does a 280 character challenge weekly where she posts a prompt pic and encourages creativity. Please VISIT her site for an explaination of the rules. Please let her know if you’re participating also and if you could drop a line here too for us to follow, that would be fantastic. As for my entry… Here goes.

The last thing I expected to see was my own advice hitting me in the eyes on my way to the lawyers. But on my way to the lawyers office to finalize the papers closing my business, all I could see was the collection of placards on the back wall. It’s time for me to “Fail Forward”.

Here’s my entry for this week:

Goads of Fun

When all you see around you is kindling for a fire,

Dead, dry, hopeless chaff,

Remember that at least YOU have a good head on your shoulders.

Even if that means others may think you’re just a Prick.

There’s always at least one in every crowd.


Now it’s your turn. Give it a try. -mike

Fear is the Mind-Killer

And Simple Faith is the Cure Killer

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total oblivion. I will face my fear. I will allow it to pass over me and through me. And when it has past I will turn my inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”- Bene-gesserit Litany Against Fear from Frank Herbert’s Dune

Faith is not the Opposite of Fear

It’s the process of ignoring things of which you are afraid, and just simply “Trusting” that “Some How” it will all “Work Out”.

Confidence and Courage in the face of difficult situations is the Cure for Fear and the Opposite of Faith. Be Confident and Courageous for yourself and your future today.
