About

Hi! I’m Allen! Al or Bigal to some. I am a student of life. Born and raised in Philadelphia, Pa. I transitioned to the midwest where I attended college. Over the years, I worked a variety of job assignments, only to end up in the position I am in now. That is in a position of motivating and encouraging others.

Sure, I do have a steady job but my passion is in motivating and encouraging others with a kind word and powerful smile. So far it has been an interesting journey that gives me satisfaction when one sees life as a learning transition we all must go through.

No doubt we all go through at some point. Much like how one travels through the desert yearning for water to hydrate we all go through this life transitioning from test to test hopefully gaining knowledge along the way.

The Watering (W)hole is that spot where you can connect and be rejuvenated. So, whether one is battling physical vices or simply experiencing mental challenges The Watering (W)hole is the place for you. Come and drink!

I am linked to popular social media outlets and welcome comments, critiques, and of course encouragement.

      1. Thank you much for your very kind assessment. Yes you are correct! My hope is for one to come and receive encouragement leading to ideas that propel them through lifeโ€™s challenges. Thanks a bunch for the read. ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ

      2. You are very welcome, Allen! I actually made about four comments on your blog but for some reason, they don’t appear after being submitted. You might want to check that my comments have not been mistaken as spams or junks. For example, one of my previous comments reads as follows:

        Hello Allen,

        I concur with lifejourney4two! I would also like to congratulate you but fear that this comment may also not get through, as I have attempted to leave a comment several times at your “About” page as follows:

        Hi Allen,

        This is my third try at leaving a comment. The first one does not seem to have gone through after being submitted.

        I agree with geno! There is considerable wisdom in your summarizing the life’s journey that you have taken. The Watering (W)hole is a fine analogy, perhaps even a wellspring of ideas!

        Happy August to you, Allen (Al or Bigal)!

      3. Hmmm. ๐Ÿค”Yes I need to check that. Thanks for the heads up! And sorry for your trouble๐Ÿ˜”
