Listen to Words Of Life…Spoken Word by Mike Anthoni 

Hey let me know what you think by commenting.  I have been out of spoken word for a while.

What Will Your Legacy Be?

What legacy will we leave behind?  This is something that I think about a lot.  As a father of three I often find myself in deep thought on what will be my narrative. How will I be remembered to the ones that matter the most? 

We often try to leave a legacy for people that matter the least. We seek to save the world and totally miss the value of building up our homes and the ones that are closes to us.

Don’t get me wrong everyone is important but not everyone is your priority.

Our kindness should extend to our families first before the stranger can benefit from our patience and smiles. 

Our spouses should get the best of us not the rest of us, after we have given our all to those that matter the least. 

 What I am trying to say is people that matter the most (Your family, significant others, friends) shouldn’t take a backseat to strangers.

We must mine the relationship that are the closes to home.  Build a legacy with those that will benefit more from our love and life.

 God help us to leave a lasting legacy to those the matter most and if there is time to those that are outside as well.

Abundant ThinkersĀ 

A replica plane that the Wright Brothers Flew.

We journeyed to Kitty Hawk N.C to vacation.  While on vacation we embarked on a life changing mission to see where the Wright Brothers changed history forever.

This is a marker of the first successful flight..

The Bible says, “don’t despise small beginnings.”

 This is where I had to improve my thinking.

 I use to equate success with fulfillment.  However, this concept of thought is flawed and dangerous.  True success is built from many wins and losses.  When we fail if we are wise we will look to see what could we’ve learned from our setbacks? And how much success did I achieve in my attempt to succeed?

Yard Marker two the flight was only 5 seconds.

Yard Marker three the flight was 10 seconds longer then the first.

Yard Marker four the final test was 59 seconds.

I believe it is not until we appreciate our failures as well as our successes that we can start experiencing true and lasting progress in our endeavors.  The Wright Brother’s figured this concept out.

 They realized that as long they were progressing forward toward their goal they were truly having lasting success.

She Takes My Breath Away

My wife taking a picture of the D.C. life.

I was captivated while catching my beautiful bride capturing the beauty of the landscape.  I think the best pictures taken are the ones we don’t see coming.

When I took this shot she left me breathless for how could I capture such beauty a second time…Wow!  I guess we were meant to be.šŸ˜¶

Let no one define what’s beautiful to you.  Never alter what God has already made to capture that one that is worthy of your fullness!
