More Jesus – Day 2

It’s always the same thing. We see something, we want it, we get it, we end up despising it. Repeat cycle. Dead ends, false starts, hopes that continue to be crushed by those we should not have put any hope in. When does it end? For many, it's a never ending cycle of frustration where...

More Jesus – Day 1

Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. :: Psalms 127:1 Who secures you? We all want SAFETY from The Lord - that feeling that no evil will occur while the power of The Lord surrounds us; this...

Day Two

2013!! It's the start of a new year and I have to admit that for perhaps the first time in what seems like an eternity, I'm genuinely intrigued by the potential of what lies ahead. Last year this time I wrote about my desire to stick to one particular route in terms of my blog...

Dead ends, false starts, hopes that continue to be crushed by those we should not have put any hope in. When does it end?

Day Two

2013!! It's the start of a new year and I have to admit that for perhaps the first time in what seems like an eternity, I'm genuinely intrigued by the potential of what lies ahead. Last year this time I wrote about my desire to stick to one particular route in terms of my blog and online identity; to this end, I was able to decide on aldanzopratt.com as my...

Repositioning

There's a measure of clarity that comes when you're on the 5th night of working past 4am on a project. That clarity pertains primarily to the idea that I am doing work for the sake of saying I'm working instead of working towards a goal. And, upon further assessment, I can genuinely say that I am working on a project that I'd rather not be involved with and in doing...

Learning

I've thrown away all of my journals. For as long as I can remember, they'd been a part of my life, my closest and most trusted friend. They served me well through the years, on days when I felt on edge, or felt like crying, or laughing, or like simply sharing the mundane... It's always been a part of my life. But, I haven't written a journal entry in a...

Day One

Simply put, it was the best year of my life.... In 2011, I made a promise to be kinder and gentler, to reach out more to people and allow my feelings to show. I feel like, as I assess the year that was, those qualities allowed me to grow as an individual and therefore allowed me to move past the old me; but, it's time to evolve from last years...

Getting Married

No, Not Me! I guess, after this entire process, I've come to a greater appreciation of what it actually takes to put together a wedding ceremony.

Change

I weighed myself this morning... As I stood on that scale and realized that I had gained another 5 pounds, and that now I was a healthy 215 pounds, I couldn't help but think it was finally time. So, I decided to finally cut my hair. I cut my hair, and it felt awesome, because for the the first time in too many years, I didn't feel like I needed...

Never Too Busy – Day 31

Day Thirty-One: Create a list of 31 things you’re grateful for. God. Life, Health and Strength... Food, Clothing, and Shelter. - Wait, is that cheating? Peter Earl - At the end of the day, there are very few opinions that matter to me. And, his is the most important. We're nothing alike, but then, we're everything alike. My Mom - She's been my best friend since I was a kid....
