Memories are the bridge between our heart and our mind.  We seem to live in the middle ground between the two.  Memories hold our vast catalog of knowledge, learning, and experiences.  They are our resource to the tools that we will need to engage life, to be successful and find happiness in life.

The mind uses our memories as a reference when we make decisions, create change and looks to our heart to guide our emotional well being.  We need both our heart and mind to balance how we engage life.

Our memories hold our journey in life, our greatest joys, our fears, our courage and our love.  It is like studying history in the hope of using our past as a foundation for our future.  Intuition may even be the mind and heart working together to determine the course of life we may take.

We need to always be learning, always growing as the world is ever-changing and for us to stay relevant we must use our mind as a change agent.  In order to change, our mind must seek knowledge and act with innovation.  Our heart must be courageous and strong so we do not shy away from taking dynamic action and change.  We can use our life journey and business memories as a catalyst to give our mind the foundation to continually seek new memories and grow our mind’s resources so that we may engage life mentally and emotionally strong.

Point Of View

I see the mind and heart as two friends walking down the dirt road one talking about the wonderful places they have been and of the knowledge and wisdom they have gained.  The other friend is talking about the road ahead and of all the new memories and experiences to come.

Together they are strong, fearless and capable of creating amazing things.  Up ahead another joins their journey to balance the heart and mind, their new friend wisdom.

Awaken the possibilities … then unleash them. After 55 years of successful retail management, I have returned to my passion of writing. I write Poetry, Storytelling, and Short Stories. As a child, I grew up on front porch storytelling. I would sit and listen to my Dad and his brothers tell these great stories that were captivating, and I always wanted to hear more. I wanted to experience the things they talked about. I started writing at a young age and reading everything I could get my hands on. At twelve years old I started a storytelling group and several of my friends became writers or poets. At 16 I hopped box cars and worked the tobacco fields, orange groves, picked cotton, and spent many nights around a campfire listing to life stories. Someone once asked me why I wrote. It consumes an amazing amount of time and I assure you it is not going to make me rich. I write so that my children can touch and feel my words telling of the ones that came before us and the stories they told me. These are the chronicles of our family and even though they come from my childhood memories and are deeply rooted in a child’s remembrance at least they may feel what it was like in the time before them and cherish the things the elders left behind. I am a Columnist & Featured Contributor, BIZCATALYST360 and I have The Writers Café, a group on LinkedIn that features Poets, Writers, Artists, Photographers, and Musicians . On Facebook I have two groups and one page; Dirt Road Storytelling, From Abandoned To Rescue Dogs And Cats, and About Life, Love And Living. As writers, it is true that we honestly do not know what we hold within us until we unleash it. When our words inspire others only then will inspiration return to the writer. I will spend my twilight years in search of the next story, the next poem, and the next image. I will take the time to enjoy my Wife, our Dogs, and Cats, and our amazing new home and I will always find the time to walk down a dirt road I truly hope is that I never have to read another book on Leadership, be on a conference call or see another plan o gram as these were the tool for what I did in life and not about who I am.

  1. Wisdom is the ability to choose and want in a rational manner, a valuable aid for future decisions, a cue to act and think properly.
    We become wiser as years go by.The aging process is the journey of each person through the experiences, between memories and perspectives, doubts and certainties. The acquisition of self continues throughout life, there is not a default term to learning. Every day you can learn, enrich your history with new meanings. We do not become wise by chance or good fortune, suddenly; but we learn constantly, even from negative events, painful. By learning to live, we learn the routes, itineraries to wisdom, knowledge, understanding of ourselves and of what happens to us. We become wise learning, ever since we are young. We become wise if we give the right importance to training, to learning, to memory, to health, to creativity, to exercise, to environment, to research, to details of the life.
