Sword and Sheild

I haven't been writing on my blog or doing my radio shows for over a month. I have been engaged in a personal conflict, now I know that the uninitiated will hear this and be concerned. If you have been traveling with me on this Journey then you know that conflicts are good for a warriors soul. I have been engaged in figuring out how to help young people educate themselves using the internet. We are living in an amazing time and it is time that we start preparing ourselves and our future for it. I have taken the challenge, and will be successful at it.
New challenges are good for several reasons:
1. They help us find out what we are made of
2. They force us to use our imagination, and channel our creativity into a new place
3. They force us to grow in new ways that may be uncomfortable but good
4. They prepare us for the next step in our life, and in many occasions they open the road for us to take the next step.

For those who are on the Journey find yourself a challenge, something that you are forced to place your wits, skill and strength against. A Journey is an adventure and what is an adventure without challenge. It becomes less of a Journey and more like a route. Something that we repeat over and over, it will eventually become boring and we will either stop our Journey, or fall into the trap of becoming the "run of the mill". This for those of us that embrace the Journey know that we have to avoid becoming regular, "run of the mill", and all the other adjectives that sound and smell like death. We have to be willing to face the conflicts of life. These conflicts make us stronger and better people in a world over saturated with normal.
So sharpen your sword, get your shield, and prepare for conflict. For only through this can we become what we were put here to ultimately become.
