Energy and persistence conquers all things.

~ Benjamin Franklin ~


Have you ever heard an inner voice whispering in your ear? I have. The voice’s message is so clear.  Follow me.  Seek me. Ask me. It will be a journey filled with peace and tranquility. Unbelievable as it is, I do not always listen.

I listen to my own voice which tends to bring me storms, tempests, hurricanes, and tornados – many challenges and much adversity.  I must then wait out the storm.  When it finally calms, I realize that I have climbed Mt. Everest.

When quiet and listening to my inner voice, I hike up a sweet, serene, peaceful mountain range.  My outcome remains the same.  The only difference is that it has been achieved through growth, understanding, and love.

Don’t climb Mt. Everest.  Expend your energy and persist to achieve your greatest goal listening to your inner voice.  It will be a protected and shielded journey.  One where you will find solace, support, courage, and wisdom.


Whoever is slothful will not roast his game, but the diligent man will get precious wealth.

~ Proverbs 12:27 ~
