Mesquite Undeveloped Land

This is off of Cartwright in Mesquite, Texas

I have lived in Mesquite for five years now, and it has grown on me somewhat. I now envision what it would look like with added additions to my own neighborhood. Although I must be perfectly transparent here, I know nothing about real estate or it’s the industry. Nevertheless, there are some things for which I believe would benefit, if only someone had the vision, the tenacity, the incite, the finance, the boldness, and the influence to make things happen.  

I believe this to be off of Military Parkway in Mesquite, Texas.

My first order of business would be geared for the next generational kids and young adults. What I mean by that is, it would be great if someone used the undeveloped land to build a complex or building that can house a training facility for kids to learn real-world skills and be trained or receive help with their studies. Of course, since it will be a training facility, it can and should be able to assist older adults with guidance on new career training as well.

The kids of this generation can use a little more interaction and exercise. I believe there should be physical training, such as martial arts, gymnastics, and video interaction entertainment that gives them a learning experience as well as, a chance to exercise their muscles and get their blood circulating. This facility should give kids and young adults real experiences for career choices to help them make better career decisions for their future.

The learning environment should take on real scenarios that people face in the world today with full out-come interaction as if they were going through it at that moment. A facility that will also have a large auditorium with a professional stage for inspiring artist for all genres of music, acting, and poetry. This should also be a breeding ground for the young inspiring scientist and researchers of the future. There are so many kids in this day and time that don’t have a clue to what they would like to be in the future. Providing our kids and young adults with ground-breaking next gen thinking and training will be unheard of.

The developers and investors cannot do this out of the kindness of their hearts, they would need to see a constant return on their money spent. After all, this is a hefty investment package undertaking. So, what I suppose is to have this building be like a sort of mall atmosphere that provides a shopping and dining experience like no other. It should have a twelve-movie cinema that provides next level three-dimensional viewing experience that incorporates vibrational movement in the seats for certain viewing experiences. They should have a separate entrance for an aquarium of a next-generation viewing experience for families to enjoy and learn from.

I suppose a cashless atmosphere. This mall type experience should be next generation technology solely on facial recognition or some sort of card payment interaction where you swipe a card displaying a certain amount of credit and access area. The price tag for such an experience will soar into the high hundreds of millions of dollars. All this does not have to be in the same building but complex or campus. A series of complexes joined together which will make one insane experience for families learn and enjoy.

What area would be large enough to house such an astronomical goal with this magnitude? What group of investors would be willing to soar into such a project and make it happen? This will be a project where great minds from all walks of life, backgrounds, and experiences would have to come together for a common end goal in which can be agreed upon. My imagination is small by comparison. But I can dream, I can envision what it would look like right down to the lighting arrangement in the auditorium to the palm trees and waterfalls on the outskirts of the buildings.

There are so many undeveloped areas that can be put to good use. I am not naive to know there are many people who would punch holes into this dream on why it should not be. Again, I can dream.

Take my immediate area for an example. There is a large space of undeveloped land that was once considered by a large international company as a prime location for one of their facilities. However, it would have meant competition for the existing companies in the area which may have felt threatened.

The big surprise to me was, to hear how the people who lived in the neighborhood are the ones who lobbied against this well-known establishment possibly preventing the company from staking a claim to the undeveloped land. Subsequently, the deal fell through. I want to be clear here, I don’t know what the final decision was on why the deal did not work, but I sure wish it would have succeeded.

People have their own opinions and concerns and are free to voice them. We live in a country that makes that possible and I love it. What I find as sad is, people not willing to accept change out of fear.

Why Are You Here?

Many people often wonder to themselves, why am I here? I wonder what my life’s purpose is supposed to be? I for one, am very interest in hearing from the people who have found answers to the question.  I want to engage my audience with this question to hear their thoughts and opinions on the matter. Will you, my reader answer the question?

Your answer, thoughts, and opinion could benefit other readers.

Is It Really Worth Being Covered For Accidents?

I use to wonder why a person would spend money for accident insurance. First off, let me make this clear. I am not referring to auto accidents, although they would be inclusive in an accident policy. You must have auto insurance by law. What I am referring to is a sole accident policy that covers a person for any type of accident. Whether you were reaching for something in the cabinet and slipped and fell, or outside gardening, or as something so simple as stepping off the curb and braking an ankle or experiencing a sprain.

Most light accidents we don’t even seek medical help. We temporarily become self-appointed doctors and come up with our own remedy and weather the storm of pain. Can you remember the last time you had an accident and had to go seek medical assistance? It’s probably been a long time, right? Well the truth of the matter is very simple, why a person would carry accident insurance can be summed up in three simple words. “Just in Case.” Yes! Just in case of an accident.

That is the sole purpose of insurance anyway, wouldn’t you agree? To have the ability to transfer risk, we must be able to find a company that would compensate us in the event of a catastrophic event of loss. In this context, an accident.


The truth of the matter is this, we cannot tell the future and in the event we, or anyone of our love ones were to experience an accident that demanded we seek help from the medical community. We need to focus on getting well and not have a financial hardship of the accident hinder our recovery process. Does that make sense?

I know, you have never had an accident in your life and don’t plan on having one. I would agree with you if it were based on sound judgment. However, we cannot tell the future and the raw fact is this; anything can happen that is not within our own control. If you have kids, you would know they experience bumps bruises and minor accidents all the time. I am not referring to every single child. But, enough to warrant concern and statistics.

Did you know on Stamford Children’s website they posted statics about accidents with children? (Excerpt) “Each year about 100 children are killed and 254,000 are injured as a result of bicycle-related accidents.” The link to read the full article is here;  https://www.stanfordchildrens.org/en/topic/default?id=accident-statistics-90-P02853

Non-auto accidents are quite common, and in fact, you can have an accident just waking up and getting out of the bed the wrong way and pulling something maybe considered an accident. Slipping, breakage, and the list goes on.

Let me ask you this; if you or someone get hurt and you lose time from work who will pay the consistent monthly bills that keep coming. Sure, major medical may lessen the financial burden for the doctor and hospital bills. However, there are millions of Americans who are not adequately prepared with savings or credit cards to help them stay afloat in the event of loss of income.

There are so many Americans living paycheck to paycheck who may face devastating consequences should an accident occur in their family and were left with the inability to pay their living expenses. I want you to think for a few minutes about, what if this happen to you. Are prepare to pay your bills for a month or three months should an accident put you out of commission for a period of time. NO, SERIOUSLY, STOP RIGHT HERE AND THINK!

My question to you is, are you prepared? I heard many people say they cannot afford it. There have been people who have lost their jobs and had to move in with other family members, creating an enormous of amount of stress on both families. When all of it could have been avoided.

It sounds to me, you cannot afford not to be prepared. Find a reparable company today and see what your options are.

Lost For Words

It’s been sometime since I have written in my blog.  Not for laziness, but a lack of something other than health to talk about.  Is it possible to get bored with your own content?  I wonder!  Suddenly, I find myself lost for words or anything relevant to discussed inform, or share.  It feels somewhat like conversation has just vanished.  I sort of feel like an artist staring at a blank canvas uninspired to paint the master piece hidden deep within the dungeons of creativity.

Life has stalled for me.  I just realized as I am typing this post I am at a cross roads.  Have you ever tried to start your car but, it just did not turn over?  It may have sounded like it was about to start but just appeared not to get the gas or some other mechanical issue prevented it from starting.   That is how my life feels.  I just came back home from assisting my sister in New York for eight months and now that I am home I am starting life all over again.

Hence, the cross roads I referred to earlier.  See, I have been a sales person, a contractor, and help desk technician for the past 28 years.  In the last month I have taken care of my sister and forgot all that I ever did in life.  Literally, for real!  I cannot remember any of the technical trouble shooting I performed nor, can I remember any of the professional sales techniques to get back in the game.  How is that possible?  I feel like a dinosaur. 

Time to learn new skills, but what should I learn to be of value to others and earn a decent living.  After all the bills keep mounting up and I feel like there is no time to waste.  My lost for words suddenly is replaced with a cry for help or to others, like some wasteful rant wasting space in the ether.

If you read this far, thanks and I wish you a fantastic day!

Just Sharing a Thought

I often wonder about each individual here on this medium.  People often tell you what they think people would want to hear or believe.  But, the true essence is within the truth of an individual, the good and bad.  I enjoy hearing the stories of people’s lives from all walks of life and found myself intrigued with people from different cultures and backgrounds.

One thing I have found, is we all have one thing in common.  We all want to be happy about something, want something better, long to be in love, or be loved, as to love someone or thing.  Sure, there are so many similarities we all share and that makes us what we are, human.

I write to learn, to learn from others, their thoughts, feelings, ideas, aspirations, and sometimes desires.  But, most of all, I write to learn how I might become to be a blessing to someone and visa-versa.   I am here to serve and I believe that serving others I will achieve the greatest joy that life can offer.

That is my own opinion I want to share with all who read my post.  If there is anything I can do for you please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.  One of my greatest attributes is the ability to listen.  I never knew until just a couple of months ago why I really listen.  It’s because my heart yearns to serve others and I realize it’s time for me to change my life and do the things that will increase joy in my own life as well.
