We are starting a new promotion. The person who is our 105,000 will wins some nice prizes. It goes very fast so don’t miss out.
Doug Bolton, the founder of Signs of Hope, is writing a new book, “Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.” It reaches out the military and veterans who may be battling anxiety, fear, depression, addictions, rejections, PTSD, and many other usual suspects. There are 22 military connected suicides every day. That is almost one every hour. We need to help stop those statistics. Be looking for more details about the new book. Look for updates here.
+ Update! The book has been sent to my editor this week. Now I wait and see how many red marks she will have in it. 🙂
The saying, “Time flies when you are having fun,” sure fits my life right now. My life right now is like going faster than a race car, and I am holding on for dear life. Here is my agenda the last week or so:
- Put out posts on three blogs or websites, every day. (www.dailysignsofhope.com, www.dougbolton.com, www.victoryforveterans.org.
- Connecting with thousands of veterans on RallyPoint (A social network just for veterans) You can join yourself at www.rallypoint.com/join/spc-douglas-bolton.
- Writing my book, Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life. I just sent most of it to my editor. Still doing some interviews of veterans for the book.
- Staying close with friends and family. A must in anyone’s life.
This keeps me hopping like a cat on a hot tin roof!
Do you get so busy you don’t know what end is up? Have you forgotten more then you know because your list is too long?
We all need to know that it is OK to slow down. It is OK to pause. We live in an intense rat race, but know that even rats rest.
Think of the tides of the ocean. They come in in a furious pace, and go back out at the same speed, but there is one point at the peak where they do not move for a few minutes. That is called high tide. So even the oceans rest.
Stop! Stop, and think about life. God says, “Be quiet and know that I am God.” He even wants us to concentrate on Him, and not of this worldly havoc.
Take time off for you. Take time off to take a breath. Take time to make sure you are OK and not wearing down. Rest is a marvelous healer.
You are never alone.
You are never forsaken.
You are never unloved.
And above all…never, ever, give up!
