Where Is Your Energy Going!!!

So…I was sitting here on the computer finishing this program that I am going to implement with the kids that I am working with at work, but I can’t focus because my mind keeps wondering off. As some of you know, I worked at a youth camp last summer in NY. Working there for the summer was one of the best experiences that I have ever had. I took myself outside the box and was willing to do things that I never saw myself doing.

I camped outside for two months…slept in sleeping bags, went hiking, cooked over a man made fire, learned how to swim(a little bit), taught basketball and tennis, taught an educational club and got to meet a lot of great people. I got to experience these new adventures in my life while working with youth from the inner city.

Working at this camp last summer allowed me to sit back, evaluate my life and be thankful for all the blessings that I have. The camp site is so high in the hills and mountains that you have no cell phone service, the air is supper clean and at night the stars look close enough to grab. It made me re-evaluate and recognize what’s important in my life. Right now, I focus my energy to being the best man of God that I can be. I give energy to loving my family to the fullest. I give energy to being the best friend I can be, and I give energy to giving back, serving people and helping youth! When is the last time you re-evaluated your life…are you giving energy to things that are necessary?

..here are some pictures from the summer camp

Peace and Blessings!!!

Yeah man... directing your energy in the right places is kinda hard sometimes, but that's the game of life anyway. Good to have you back posting, can't wait for the rest. One!
