Cheynoea`s thoughts blog

 

My blog is called Cheynoea’s Thoughts. This name came from my Native American heritage. I was given this name as my adult native name by one of my elders. It is more like just a nickname because it is not on any of my legal documents. It means White Dove. A dove stands for peace and I am a peacemaker above all else.

My blog does not follow any one topic of conversation. I write what is in my heart and in my thoughts on any given day. This can range from non-fiction, self-help or self-improvement, thoughts about what is going on in the world, true-life stories, writer’s challenges, poetry, music, and even fiction or fantasy.

I think this recent post about my writing journey will explain most of why I write. It is in my blood. In my soul. It is as much a part of me as my limbs, hair, eyes, and ears.

My Writing Journey

I started my blog in 2015. I posted here and there but never really maintained it like I do now. I struggled to obtain followers and became discouraged. I knew and still know very little about blogging. What I do know is that I have a strong desire to share my life story, thoughts, and opinions in a way that will inspire and encourage others to fight through their struggles. I wish to leave the world a better place for our youth. If my writing can somehow do that, I have succeeded.

 

Character is Moral Integrity.

It goes hand in hand with your personal happiness!

If you have poor character, and treat others distastefully,

You will surely be unhappy in life.

If you have a good character, and treat others well,

God will provide happiness in your heart.

LOVE is the most precious Gift you can give to yourself and others.

Brian Lageose blog

Brian Lageose blog 

Brian was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma on a cold January day in 1965.

Clearly, the odds were already against him.

But he persevered, slugging through this and that, and he quickly learned at a very young age that some people can achieve greatness with dedication and hard work, some people are destined to awe the world with their ineptness and lack of admirable qualities, and most people are quite happy to simply plod along in the middle, leading pleasant but mundane lives where they occasionally find a stash of misplaced quarters under a sofa cushion and everybody gets to go out for ice cream.

Brian was not impressed with any of these options. He looked up from his paperwork at the Life Goals Development Center, and studied the applicants around him. Everyone else was quickly selecting one of the three avenues, shoving their completed forms at one of the bored administrative people, and then rushing out the door, because “Charlie’s Angels” was on TV in a few minutes and you couldn’t really miss THAT.

In frustration, Brian turned over his application, intent on writing a scathing missive to Whoever Was In Charge that he really didn’t appreciate the skimpy menu of opportunities, and he noticed a fourth career path, hastily scribbled in by someone with vision: “Some people feel compelled to study the world and people around them, and then stay up all night writing down their thoughts on the matter.”

Brian smiled, checked the box, and added his signature with a flourish. And so it began.
