dropping some Jewel dust on you

I was speaking with an old friend who is an Major in the Army and one who has worked hard to achieve his rank and status. He was picking my brain over an issue he was having with a fellow Major and in the midst of the conversation I told him that as long as he knows what he's doing is right and that he's confident in his work and actions, then he has nothing to worry about. In addition, I stated the following:

"A man shows himself in action; not word, knowing that it's what he leaves behind in footprint is what people follow". - BluJewel 2008

After I sent it to him, he replied stating how much he liked what I said and asked if he could use it as his signature. I was flattered and humbled that he found it so significant to use it.

I'm sharing it with you and hope it makes a difference in your lives and actions.

Love!

That is deep and something a lot of people don't realize. You can say damn near anything, but you have to back up what you say with actions. Thanks for the quote.

You know - sometimes we say stuff and we don't even realize how profound some statement are. The other day I said this, "listening is an art; learn how to be creative."

Someone asked me if they could use that - I agreed - lol.
