Life According to Mark | My Random Thoughts
I’m so glad that you took a few minutes to drop by. I created this website to share thoughts about life, faith, and lessons that I have learned. I began writing several years ago and discovered I love to write. Writing enables me to communicate thoughts I otherwise have difficultly articulating.
Many of my thoughts you will read here are based on lessons I have learned throughout life. I feel that anytime you can help someone by offering them wise counsel, you have done well. Life has a way of teaching you lessons the hard way as a result of mistakes made. I have made many mistakes in my life that have taught me some tough lessons. If I can help someone avoid the mistakes I have made by offering them wise counsel through my writing, I will consider that a win.
I live in a small town in the Foothills of the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee. I love the mountains and the beauty of the surrounding area in which I live. There is nothing more relaxing than taking a drive through the Smoky Mountains. There is such tranquility, peace, and beauty in the rolling mountain ridges, it is almost medicinal. Some of my posts may include pictures of the natural beauty that surrounds me.
If you read something in my posts that encourages you, inspires you, or you simply enjoyed reading, I would love to hear your comments. At the end of each blog post is a form to submit comments. I would love to read your feedback on my thoughts.
Thank you for visiting my website. Remember to always strive for higher heights and never give up on your dreams. As Walt Disney once said, ” If you can dream it, you can achieve it.”
