Happy Memorial Day everyone! Today I quickly decided to post a new wallpaper I've been hanging on to for a national holiday to come around.

This new wallpaper is entitled, "Vigilance", and it is my sixth new release of the year, and the 165th overall to my gallery.

Today, America honors the fallen men and women who served their country in military combat and lost their lives defending America's freedom. I am very grateful for these brave souls who gave up so much to provide so much in return. They paid the ultimate price to maintain our country's freedoms.

I loved this quote I found by Beecher on vigilance and how it also relates to success in life as well. The image I choose to go along with the quote is an image that I had taken a few years back which I felt conveyed the reality, and to serve as a great reminder, that we need to be vigilant in our own lives against opposition that seeks to bring us down and destroy us.

Most of the time, these such opponents aren't people or things, but rather negative character traits like sloth, greed, hatred, jealousy, or even ambivalence. They are much more subtle as they try to creep into our minds which ultimately can destroy our efforts for success in life and bring us down. They are the weeds of life that choke out the seeds of successful living. We need to keep vigilant against such saboteurs and watch ourselves from letting these overtake our hearts and minds.
