So who is a hero? If you read my prior journal entry, you’ll know I am. And so are you!

Hero, noun from Dictionary.com

1) A person noted for courageous acts or nobility of character.

2) person who, in the opinion of others, has special achievements, abilities, or personal qualities and is regarded as a role model or ideal: Examples: My older sister is my hero. Entrepreneurs are our modern heroes.

Are you an Entrepreneur? A role model to anyone? Have done things you are proud of?

Then you are a hero. Every story of accomplishment has a central figure who showed courage by stepping up and doing what they knew to do. Showed courage in the face of opposing circumstances and kept going on to acheive whatever the goal is. This is something anyone can do.

We each have things we are better at than others. We each have failings those others do not seem to have. None of that matters.

What matters is that we keep on keeping on till one has done all one can do.

I am posting from my Samsung Note 8 again. Blog posts from the phone are ever so much harder than using a computer especially whenever one’s vision is blurring in and out.

All seemed lost when my car window was broken thousands of miles away from home, letting in the cold, wind and rain. Computers were stolen, money gone. Insurance said that and the earthquake damage to my property back home were not covered.

Despite thoughts of failure, depression, hopelessness and being alone, I struggled forward anyway. A week later some money I was owed showed up, with it I fixed the car window and got caught up on my PIF. Yesterday a friend called and said he’d like to loan me $2000 with no definate payback date. The exact amount needed to replace the new computer which had been stolen with an identical model.

I may still have the computer I wanted before the vision board deadline. I await with anticipation. I’m hoping this computer lasts me 10 years, just like my older one did that was stolen at the same time.

What a ride life can be.

  1. Marcos as I understand it, your home was in an earthquake. Insurance is not covering it. You are living in your car. Stuff got stolen from you car. Itโ€™s winter so you are freezing.
    And you still carry on as though nothing has happened.
    YOU ARE A TRUE HERO MARCEL!

    I wish you blessings and a quick manifestation of your DMP.

    And so it is.

    • As a Blog Rover, Marcam22, as often as I’ve had to deal with this same issue, I must admit it’s never been due to problems involving cell phone voice recognition. I could chalk it up to an active case of DD (Davene Dyslexia), however, I would then need to further admit that there’s probably no connexia. LOL ๐Ÿ™‚

    • No problem. Call me anything you like… Except “late for dinner”. Yes, it is snowing back home. Fortunately I am in Portland Oregon where it is rain not snow, my car is equipped for a road trip, and the thief settled for the computers rather than everything else too. As difficult as it has been, there are many people living on the street here in Portland with far less than I have. I only had part of my car soaking wet, and it hasn’t even taken mold Some of them were completely drenched, still surviving. In many cases clearly keeping their ethics even as they had to dig in trash cans for cast off stuff to try to turn into money. In one case I saw even protecting the property of a complete stranger (who never even knew it) from being broken into by another. When the Condo I just put on the market sells, I’ll be back in business. I doubt that particular hero can say the same.

      • Just the fact that you asked this question has already improved my day. Thank you. I’m still struggling with my old blueprint that says I’m the one that is supposed to be the helper, not the helped. And honestly while the answer is probably yes, I haven’t a clue what would be reasonable to ask.

  2. Yes, life can be quite a ride, Marcel. Based upon this description of your recent adventure so heavily involved in dealing with the consequences of both mother nature and human nature after doing some of their malevolent worse, I’m inclined to re-name you “Bronco Billy.” Yet Clint Eastwood has already taken that name, so that would be kinda silly. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Meanwhile, my congrats on providing evidence both in the way you turned your hardship into a “Hail Mary,” and look upon Google’s scrutiny as a positive thing called accountability, rather than a treacherous act to rally the troops into mass mutiny. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I must further congratulate you for following around 290 people. I’m not sure how large your hands are when brought together to create that church with its two-fingered steeple; nonetheless, I’d like to bring my hands together loudly, because there could be mass this Sunday to honor you as if “A REBEL WITH A CAUSE,” so worthy of my applause that I must point to it quite MKE proudly! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you for your kind comments. Speaking of Clint, Clyde may do for a name ๐Ÿ˜‰ Certainly resembles me at times. Unfortunately, the all the “following” hasn’t been possible to keep current with just the phone. Looking forward very much to having that new computer.

      • A blogging hint… no problem putting your new link in reply to another reply such as mine. It adds links to both your and Mark’s blogs raising the social status of both.

      • Here is how: Open your blog, in another tab or your browser, cut the URL for your blog from your browser’s address field, then paste that web address into your reply here.

      • When I went to blog roll to hit my blog it took me to my blog. I have no clue how to cut from the URL.

      • See the place on your browser, a little below the top of the browser window where you type the web address you want to look at? That is the address field The address you type is the URL. When your blog is displayed click on it, then mouse right click-> Select All, right click again -> Copy. That puts it into your cut-n-paste buffer. Then in the comment reply here,, as you are typing click where you want to paste the URL, then right click -> Paste. URL simply means “Universal Resource Locater”, in other words, the web address.

  4. Wow, you are a great example of resilience! I understand about blogging from a phone. I blogged from my tiny iphone last year for almost 2 months almost daily in Spain. Then came home and re-formatted most of it.

    • Sounds like I’m not the only resilient one. You must have far better eyesight than I do. At least I had a decent size screen on my phone, possibly three times the size of the original iPhone. I may also have to do a bunch of reformatting. I haven’t even looked at that yet….

  6. Truly a hero is what you are! I admire your perseverance and your outlook. Week 18 will remind you to live each day as if it were your last. Not as a negative but as an opportunity. Somehow I believe you already do! Cheers! May peace and love be in your heartโค๏ธ

  7. Definitely not what happens to us but how we choose to respond to it, has been my lesson. Prayers for you and gratitude from me for you… blessed to be on this journey with you… also, as are so many others showing their kindnesses.
