Feeling overwhelmed?

The following article is a continuation from a collection of Forbes’ blog page: My Enigmatic Life – entries are dated according to when they were first posted. Happy Reading!

I don’t do healthy well. After twenty+ years of being sick, the thought of finally being well is daunting. In this blog, I will try to explain that as we go. Wish me luck. 6/7/12


As I write this tonight I have many thoughts. We are so lucky. I saw a double rainbow tonight and I finally got my garden in. I can’t wait for fresh tomatoes and veggies. As busy as life gets, take time to smell the roses. 6/22/12

Every day we have our trials…I always remember this phrase. I don’t know who said it, but it is so true. Today is the tomorrow that we worried about yesterday. When you look at life like that, you can get through anything. A day is only twenty-four hours. If you take it an hour or a minute at a time, it seems so much easier. We can get through anything no matter how troubling. 6/8/12

Eppie Lederer, a.k.a. Ann Landers, 1918-2002

“Don’t accept your dog’s admiration as conclusive evidence that you are wonderful.” Ann Landers.

I have been doing a lot of thinking in the few days I have taken off from writing my blog. I met someone the other day who was asking about my leg. She approached me half expecting that I would be offended (I think). Her son just had his leg removed and she was curious about many things. I think that she just needed to know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I gave her my phone number and told her that I make house calls if she or her son had questions or problems that I might have already experienced. This gave me an idea. I’m not a doctor; just someone who has been through a great many things in my life. If anyone reading this has a question that I may be able to answer or just needs someone to talk to, just let me know.

Theodore Seuss Geisel in 1957

I truly believe that we are all put on this earth for a reason and we should all be aware that fact.

The more people that we meet, the more diverse our lives can be. Everyone has value. To quote Dr. Seuss;” A person’s a person no matter how small.”  We can learn from everyone and everything. 7/5/12


F. Forbes Johnson has been a Blue Water Area supporter for as long as he can remember. “I have have seen the good times, bad times and great times and have been lucky enough to have been part of a good many of them. I performed around the world, around the states, and around Port Huron. The blue in the water is in my blood and always will be. From Port Huron High School to Saint Clair County Community College, Central Michigan University to Michigan State. From speaking to singing to masters of ceremony to teaching to singing on hit albums, dancing with Marcel Marceau and National Touring Companies; THIS will always be home. I have been blessed to meet the finest people on earth, work with them, learn from them and find a good percentage of them in this area. To my fellow teachers, former students, performers, and many friends (who just happen to be the best ever) I am the most blessed man in this world. These are the people who have made me who I am. If I can impart any of whatever I have to one person, I will have been a success. Question me, talk to me, write to me and I guarantee an honest answer. It’s not easy but anything can be done with faith, hope and the will to do your very best in life. Anything is possible.”
