During my first year in college, I remember someone telling me that the most important thing about life is the journey and not the destination. I didn’t fully appreciate what he was saying until a few years later, but it is something I now think about every day. By living in the moment and enjoying the journey, I am better able to appreciate all the wonderful people and experiences in my life. Bon Voyage!
Seeing positive images of LGBT people is so important in our lives. It reminds us to celebrate our love and relationships, every day. Here is one of my favorite images: two young men, a simple kiss, an expression of love and affection.
Never underestimate the power of love. Your love means so much to your family and friends. It has the power to heal, and to bring much happiness to yourself and others. Give your love freely and enjoy life to the fullest every day!
“There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved.”

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart.”
“Until the great mass of the people shall be filled with the sense of responsibility for each other’s welfare, social justice can never be attained.” (quotes by Helen Keller)
Because I believe in the power of positive thinking, and in an unselfish effort to help others, I propose the following basic human rights be part of every country’s constitution:
1. Universal Health Care; 2. Affordable Housing; 3. Low-Cost, Renewable Energy; 4. Full Employment; and 5. Equal Rights for every man, woman, and child.
Some countries have already implemented many of these goals, but most have not. Selfishness and greed must end for these goals to be achieved. The future of mankind depends on what we do today as individuals and as citizens of the world.

Starting Here, Starting Now, is the first book in a series that Robert is writing about how to achieve your goals and find personal fulfillment. According to the author, "Life is filled with abundance, joy, and love, but many of us are too busy to appreciate the opportunities we have. In this book I offer, simple, straightforward advice to help everyone live life to the fullest every day!"
