So I’m not a Monday person

Leave a comment

Yeah, another Monday and its also a gloomy one to start so the only redeeming fact so far is that my work week is one day less this week than normal. And I’ll take that as a positive sign of things to come. But in looking at the “to do list” I find myself wanting to escape that reality before even starting to tackle it. I feel like I had a mini vacation and in some ways I did. And I want it to continue. But life goes on and you have to go through some tough stuff to appreciate the good times.

It’s Monday and it won’t take much to piss me off.

Actually there is much to feel positive about. Had a recharge of seeing my children. I’ve made it to the ripe age of 60 last week. Getting some plumbing issues addressed. Ready to find some more good deeds to do. About to get back into the workshop for some engraving work being we might have a few days of overcast weather.

I’m trying to remember there is always something I can do or turn to stay active and challenged. It’s fun and motivating to have something to look forward to doing each day. So if your job has lost its luster or you just don’t feel challenged there just find something that does and let that drive you.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
