Rubber hits the road....

Actions or words?
I had an issue today at work that got me upset and even defensive, but I needed time to think about it. I then looked at it again as an opportunity ---- to finally put into action all of those nifty sayings, quotes & statements about excellence, achievement and endurance.....instead of just using them to fill up wall space like I believe most people do.

It is easy to do, say or even think the right thing when you are not under the gun, downtrodden, criticized, or even challenged. It is when you have to deal with adversity that you truly see what lies beneath your own skin. I think I am growing stronger with each event and by acknowledging your own faults through accountability and moving forward with new commitments, you can continue to grow and mature. (at least that is my goal) :)

Somedays, it is perfect takes all you have just to stay in the game.

New Laptop & Blog Writer --- Dell M1530 & Windows Live Writer?

Amazingly, I got a new laptop to use for work and it an incredible Dell XPS M1530 running Windows Vista Home Premium. I absolutely love this laptop and Vista. (at least it is stable at this point --- hehe) --- I really like the fingerprint scanner to protect and auto-logon to sites such as banking, blogspot etc....can never be too careful, right?

So, what about Windows Live Writer? It makes so much easier to use --- it is like a live editor with so much better functionality than the generic "" interface. It basically does everything behind the scenes and just lets you focus on writing, posting & then it sends everything locally up the blogspot site.

Pretty nifty.....huh?

Here is a picture of my new laptop & Live Writer! Cheers!
