Much easier

Leave a comment

Life is a lot easier when you’re approaching it the right way. I’ve fought with the natural flow of life. I’ve gotten tied up in small stuff and wondering about why people do what they do or don’t do. I’ve let my emotions and attitudes get in the way. I’ve let my mind get lazy and instead of thinking about solutions and options, I’ve let problems stop me.

But I got a bit wiser along the way and I’m taking the problem solving mindset that I have used successfully a long time on the job and began applying it to my personal life. I’m looking for solutions and options again. And if I can’t fix it I don’t let it tear me up. I’m staying positive, I’m staying engaged. I’m spreading the news.

There are so many things I wish I learned earlier on in my life. It’s nice to see my kids are smarter than I and not repeating some of their dads mistakes.


Random Thoughts of the Day

People can be disappointing. People can be amazing.

Say hello to an old teacher. You might brighten their day.

Where was the Omarosa tape of the day? Did I sleep though it?

I usually don’t buy the big lotto tickets with the exception of 2-3 times a year maybe. But for some reason I feel compelled to try this week. I’d like to get an early start on retirement and my second career.

My goal is to work from home someday soon.

I wish I had more time to spend with my post today. I’ll do better tomorrow.

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.
