What is Holding You Back?

Do you know someone that always talks a grand plan, but never makes progress and often their goals change as often as men in command of the remote control? One of our daughters was seeing a young man with a plethora of honorable goals though he was not taking steps towards achievement. I cautioned our daughter who was a bit enamored with his plans that he might be a “gonnabe.” She questioned what is that? I answered, “he’s going to be this he’s going to be that, but never does anything “ 

ears loweredSaturday Carey and I saw a buddy of mine I have known since he and I  were twelve. Someone in the room asked what year I was born? Carey answered and Tim exclaimed, “64! He has told you a whopper if you think David’s under 50!” His old man hearing incorrectly heard my wife, but the thought consumed me that these two little boys I can still clearly picture are over fifty! Definitely not a matter of vanity, I’m proud of my expanding forehead and what hair that hasn’t turned loose is turning gray. Doctors predicted I would not see thirty. I cannot believe how quickly time has passed. I am not where I want to be, am I a gonnabe?

Time is the most precious asset on earth. I started this post Sunday morning with no idea that twelve hours later my life would take a dramatic change. I have to say goodbye to blogging regularly, because after 22 years I am coming out of retirement. A dear friend visited yesterday and made a proposal I could not refuse. My friend purchased Words+, the company that created E Z Keys, the augmentative communication software I use. Things are still coming together, but the owner is a genius, innovative and compassionate so expect the impossible. E Z Keys for Windows 8 is coming first, cutting edge computer interface and it looks like the wheelchair driving system I designed has found a home. I will be helping others have a voice. What could possibly be better than that? I will keep the blog online and post updates occasionally.

When it seems to continually hit the fan, give it a day or two or three…….. I really appreciate everyone that has visited the blog, the numbers have been phenomenal. The unexpected destination continues. Thanks for reading. Have a great day! dj
