For a 💡dose🍊 of motivation:

My 👓Must-See👀 💿DVDs📀

  

Get Coached is a collection💾 of 🎬segments🎥 from 🌠winning🏆 🏉football🏈 📣coaches📢

  • 4 NFL head coaches, including 2 Mikes ~ one (Singletary) who played for another Mike (Ditka) & the father (Buddy Ryan) of another featured coach (Rex Ryan), + another one (Sean Payton) who I actually reported on for one of my last doctoral classes
  • The Florida State Seminoles former coach (Bobby Bowden)

 

I also am including how their speeches🎤 ~ which are relevant not just in terms of athletic leadership, but 👔corporate💼 🏣business, as well ~ tie in with the 🌈exemplary💭 leadership theory that I’m exploring in my doctoral🎓 📜dissertation.

📢Cheers👏🏽 to 🏉NFL🏈 Preseason I 🎊2015🎉 👟kickoff!

All Day I Dream💭 About SOCCER⚽️

SI USA

World Cup Champs! 🏆

After all, how’d I land my muscular legs?

Actually, although folks have pointed out how I could pass as a kicker, I didn’t play fútbol, but I’ve surrounded myself with many fellows who 💕💞💓💗💖💝love💟❤️💛💚💙💜 the game, including

Don’t use this peak 🌅summer🌻 😅heat💥 as an excuse not to kick around the ball. You may have an indoor field ~ just like the one in the city where I’m pursuing my PhD which is happens to be run by someone from my hometown (how’s that for a small 🌍world?)!

FYI: All Day I Dream About 💡Scholarship🏤

And I’m taking those steps👣 to follow through toward scoring my goal!

Just like in soccer!

Angelic Annie is the prayerful† pet ~ reverent with our Rosary!


This glow-in-the-dark Rosary goes well with reverent Angelic Annie‘s green eyes ^_^

Last Memorial Day🇺🇸 weekend, I longed to stay home🏡 and relax with my Double A😻 ~ to play and pray✌ ~ before teaching this summer☼ and my work trips🚘 slated for next month!

 
To kick it off, my bestie‘s family held Mass💒 at their new blessed 🏠home! Her always generous mom was sweet🍭 enough not just for the food🍛 that she cooked🍗 and baked🎂 for their guests, but also for sending me home with plenty of leftovers🍱 and one of the beautiful flower💐 center pieces! 

  
Before I followed in my mom’s lead by bringing them to the 🙏Virgin … 

 
        

… My 🐱girls🐯 and I enjoyed 🌺them, and I made the most out of my QT with my ♥cuties! K&K‘s💪 FFF book📖 (2015) cited research🔬 from 📙Journal of Evolutionary Psychology that revealed how fresh flowers🌷 provoke 🌻joy!

 
        

FYI: Due to my the heavy load ahead for my remaining dissertation🎓 work ahead, I may not post📓 on here as much. Best wishes of blessings† to all who stay in my loop📳 as I deliver the scoop🍦 … and I seek y’all to please send good vibes☺️ and lift yours truly in ☝prayer, thank y’all! 

Thirsty Thursday: Pray Hard

Play as hard as you work.

My techie buddy has advised me to do something to this effect, to which I said, “not until I become doctor.”

Dr. Dispo

Throwback Thursday: Pie Chart to track my PhD progress & Doctorate pen to sign when I pass my dissertation defense to become Doctor

Since I’d prefer to stay close to †GOD† and pave my way to Heaven, I’ll switch it up a bit …

Pray as hard as you work!

Now that, I can do. Lately, I’ve noticed myself feeling more inclined to stick with working on my studies than leading a social life (I’d leave parties early, cancel outings, etc.) ~ the one interruption from my dissertation would be a welcome one:

to pray, or ♪♫sing♪♫ a ♫♪hymn♫♪ or a ♫♪Psalm♪♫, which pretty much still will be to pray anyway.

Dr. Díaz pointed out that his own research was something that he happily woke up to and fell asleep dreaming about. My AF pilot friend suggested that my Catholic school goal could almost be an obsession, or at least a positive pursuit that consumes my soul ~ my Ph.D. has been my life and the major step toward that ambition, yet it has been a most prayerful part.

Rather than praying for my own wants or needs, I keep seeking GOD‘s will†
