Finding Worth in the Middle of the Earth: 03.18.2018

Every day presents new opportunities and I’m ready…

Stuck between what I want and what I need but never for the reasons one might think. In life we all are afforded some sort of opportunity, some are good and some are bad but at the end of the day, it’s a chance to do something completely different. The question is not the nature of the opportunity but whether or not we are open to the idea of completely changing something in our lives. There is fear that exists with the uncertainty of any opportunity, hell, the uncertainty that the day could provide. But what is life, if we don’t take chances if we don’t choose to be uncomfortable?

Don’t get me wrong the goal is to be comfortable right, in your finances, in your home, in your job but what if we stopped seeking comfort and started seeking more. More in our finances, more in our homes, and more in our career but we have to have a plan of attack. Don’t allow for anything to prevent you from making a difference in your life. You must evaluate the opportunity and see if it will work for you where you are in your life today. All of us have many factors that we must consider when making these sort of decisions whether family, geographical location, benefits, etc. Again, it’s important to note that all opportunities are not good ones but it’s definitely worth researching any new opportunity before acting on it. Every day presents new opportunities and I’m ready to consider them at least for now.

Peace and Love,

Finding Worth in the Middle of the Earth: 03.04.2018

God… I just wonder when it will all make sense. I know that in time things will unfold as they should, all the pieces will fall into place as they say but when. This week has been filled with the normal ups and downs that are associated with working a 45-50 hour work week, trying to build a Lifestyle online presence and following, and still keep my career goals at the forefront of my mind. You know the normal stuff. What I have to keep reminding myself is that anything I do or attempt to accomplish is within my power. If I am only able to put 30% towards it that day, at least I am trying.

We all place limitations and pressure on ourselves, the pressure to be our best and our greatest without understanding that things won’t come together overnight. “Rome wasn’t built in a day” has never rung so true. I have health goals, career goals, relationship goals, spiritual goals, goal goals that I want to reach and what I’m learning is that it is all in God’s timing and my willingness to make it happen.  As I enter into this new week I hope to keep the same attitude in all that I face this week. I hope that you do the same.

Peace and Love,

…sharing the load makes the plight a little easier.

When life throws you unexpected turns and crisis, how do you cope? You have conversations about these things before and discuss how you would react in certain situations but you never know until you know. You cannot expect the unexpected, it is not something that you can truly plan for because life doesn’t grant you the peace of familiarity.  It’s important to focus on trying to find a solution but sometimes the solution is never the right one. You don’t agree with others when making this decision and sometimes you do but we all struggle with the uncertainties of the decisions we’ve made, that one thing is king. There is always the opportunity to be better than the choices we’ve made but what can we do when all we have left is our word. We must stick by these choices we make because dependability and our values in something are what makes us human. I’ve been having to deal with a lot of decisions lately as you can imagine with the entire point of this post some uncomfortable and some that I was not ready for but what I must do is stand by them.

As I’ve traveled on this road of life, I’ve been faced with many tragedies and decisions and they never seem easy or manageable. However, sharing the load makes the plight a little easier. All I can do is reach out to God for the answers and pray that he will have mercy on me even when I don’t give myself the same room for error. If I am to be all that I aspire, I have to choose to make some hard decisions and pray that it will all be worth it in the end. Have you been dealing with a tough decision lately, comment below? Additional tips and help are on the way as I make a choice to do something new in my life, my blog, my lifestyle.

Finding Worth in the Middle of the Earth : 12.24.2017

The eve before this highly celebrated day is not just an eve for the birth of the Christ child but for the goodness that man can offer. Christmas is about giving something more than gifts and cheesy cards. Christmas is about hope and the gift of giving it. Celebrating with family and friends near and far.

Although I was unable to visit family this year because of the randomness of life. I will be spending each day with my love and with myself. This will be a time for reflection and self editing as I finish this year and prepare for the next. There is so much more to this life than many are afforded to experience, it is my goal to not take advantage of my life but to find the meaning in it. 1 more day to Christmas, what are your plans? How are you going to make this day special?

Peace and love,

Michael Anthony


You say that you want to change?Release yourself from the chains? Free your mind from the pain? Release your body from the strain? Then why does this plague you so? What does it benefit you if you choose to not let it go? What peace could you know ? Have you asked yourself these questions? Have you learned these lessons? Or are you still waiting to answer them?

They are not measured by material things…

Thankful, for my blessings. They are not measured by material things. Instead the intangible blessings God gives me everyday. That is what I am grateful for.

Thankful, for my family. Loved ones that are near and far. Friends that are still here and those that are no longer friends. I am thankful for the ability to love my enemies.

Thankful, for my spirit. It is at peace with the things that I cannot control and longing for more power to change the things I can. Strength to travel a journey that has been trotted before but gain new insight and experience.

Thankful, for God. He is my everything and the reason of Thanksgiving.

Peace and love to you and yours this holiday,

Michael Anthony

The peace that I long for can only be achieved through self-evaluation…

The peace that I long for can only be achieved through self evaluation and even more importantly a meditative mind. “Fiercely encouraged” is how I wake up feeling each morning because there is no reason not to be that way. So many different thoughts run through my mind each day as I process the hundreds of things being thrown at me each day and I think “there has to be more than this.” I know that we all must work and must push through any ideas that we have of what our life should look like by this point in our lives. The caveat is to recognize that just because the journey isn’t going as planned that it doesn’t lessen the importance of the journey. This path is what we make it and to keep it short and to the point, this path is necessary.

Peace and Love,

Michael Anthony

Cry Out: Trees

…cry out to be free.

Roots attach yourself to the Earth from which you’re planted and create life that is dwindling. Let the rain hit your leaves and fall down to the ground in which you are rooted. Giving you life and the ability to grow. Touch the sky as you are the natural skyscraper. Longing to stand , to bend, to branch out. We are like these trees crying out to live and to grow. We are a force of our own wanting to cry out. Cry out because of the violence, the negative changes that affect you daily, and cry out to be free. 

Laguna Living : Brunch

The calming atmosphere meeting the lush expression of God’s beauty…

One of the best places to have brunch and enjoy the views that Laguna Beach offers is Las Brisas! The calming atmosphere meeting the lush expression of God’s beauty outside provides an unparalleled experience.  Everyday I’m inspired to work a little bit harder each day just so that this is my norm. It can be yours too with research, hard work and a little patience. Oh and of course some good food.
