September became “Rocky” Month! The “Rocky” films have always inspired courage to overcome enormous odds and to fight for what’s important in life. September’s Monthly Feature talked about taking risks, like my brother David, in trying out for a regional karaoke contest. Most people never step up to test their talents for fear of failure. But David’s risk paid off, resulting in a win that sent him to Laughlin, Nevada for the next round of international competition!
Continuing from the first film, Weekly Blogs focused on what it takes to really pursue a dream. Making Dreams Happen, Part 1 talked about believing that a dream can be achieved, as my wife and I discussed finding a dream home, and ultimately found one the perfect place to meet our family’s needs. Part 2 discussed putting in the work necessary to build those dreams, the way I need to keep working out if I hope to get back in shape.
“Rocky II” talked about putting our family and everyday life first, not neglecting daily chores and the needs of loved ones to pursue a dream as a selfish obsession. Sharing family responsibilities typically results in seeing our families share our dreams!
Finally, “Rocky III” talked about accepting new challenges that push us past our comfort zone, helping us grow stronger to take on more responsibilities, to bless those around us.
Have a great day!
