philosophical Epiphany

            “T-R-E-E” A composition of symbols ever so subtly depicted in black against a lighter contrast. It signifies nothing until it is confronted by an individual who fathoms the English definition of the term. The definition: A woody perennial plant, having a single stem rising to a considerable summit and bearing tangential branches at particular distance from the land. However, when two individuals perceive the word “tree”, the representation etched in their mind is dissimilar from one another. In addition, the cerebral representation may be revised when the term is stumbled upon at a separate instance. The word may not have changed, nor does the sound of its pronunciation, yet the semblance may! How can that be explicated?

As one comprehends the word, memoirs transpire into consciousness contingent on the former encounters. Synaptic fibers discharge through the brain, swiftly migrating through pre-molded neuronal networks; inciting the most vivid memories of that specific object…

Brightline’s Fort Lauderdale train station about to rise

The fast, modernistic Brightline passenger rail line is moving closer to its goal of starting service next year.

A ceremonial cement-pouring took place Friday at the train station rising northwest of downtown Fort Lauderdale. The rail service is engaged in construction work along the 67-mile initial route connecting Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach, with stations rising in all three cities.

The first train, consisting of two locomotives and four cars, will be delivered this fall. It will be a frequent sight on the Florida East Coast rail line in Palm Beach County from West Palm Beach south, as the company uses it for testing and training.

On Friday, public officials carved their names in the cement poured for the first of the towering, 140,000-pound V-shaped columns that will frame the Fort Lauderdale station, a 60,000-square-foot structure going up north of Broward Boulevard and west of the central bus terminal.

What Not To How To

Midnight Musings with Megs

When I was deciding what sort of blog this would be, I briefly considered writing some sort of “How To” blog. A glance at my Facebook newsfeed suggests that How To’s are a big thing.

How To Have A Complete Wardrobe With Only 20 Items

How To Contour Your Face In 5 Steps

How To Shave Your Alpaca From A Distance

How To Paint Your Own Glitter Beard (That’s a Thing, the link is there, and I encourage all bearded readers to please do this. Please.)

So I sat down with the coffee that I purchased because I didn’t know how to make it and considered what sorts of things I could cover in a How To blog. I once tried to write a beginners sewing blog, because I thought it’d be fun for readers to try to learn how to sew while I posted my sewing projects to demonstrate how easy it…

3 Affirmations Successful People Repeat Every Day

“I think I can, I think I can, I think I can…” Success starts with positive self-talk.

I think I can, I think I can, I think I can. The power of belief and repetition are underestimated. Your thoughts have more influence over your life than you realize. Interview any successful person and they’ll tell you how important positive self-talk is to your confidence. You must believe you can succeed.

Here are three great affirmations successful people recite to themselves every day:

1. I expect to win. I deserve to win.

One of the problems many people have in common is low expectations. They don’t expect the best; they don’t really expect to succeed. Maybe they set a high goal but expect only to make it halfway there. Some claim having low expectations saves them from disappointment, but they’re only holding themselves back. You must not only expect to win but feel like you deserve it, too. If you don’t think you deserve it, then you may unintentionally self-sabotage.

2. I will not care what other people think.

Fear of people is another major obstacle on the road to success. If you’re scared about what other people think, then starting that business, training to one day make it into the NFL, or changing careers in your 50s will be extremely challenging. You might not even pursue your goal due to the fear of what other people think. Stop caring what other people think when it comes to achieving your goals and being yourself.

3. I can’t do everything today, but I can take one small step.

In the world of distractions and quickly evolving technology, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. When you set a goal, there seems to be too much to do in order to accomplish it. Just take it one day at a time, one task at a time, and you’ll reach your goal. When you feel overwhelmed, you seek out distractions like social media and other forms of entertainment, which will not bring you closer to living the successful life you envision.

Success affirmations are helpful for changing what you believe at a subconscious level. When you tell yourself something so many times, you eventually begin to believe it. When you start believing, you then start working and becoming focused on accomplishing those goals that you have set for yourself. To get started on seeing more success in your life, repeat these three affirmations every day. It all starts with positive self-talk.
