Make it happen

Leave a comment

I may seem motivated. But I’m lazy. Might not appear that way to the outside world with being gainfully employed, raised a family, keeping the bills paid, but I’m a bit lazy. But today I’m not going to be. That’s a start to overcoming it. .So I started the day getting back to work on my photo site. Uploaded about a hundred images and hope to do hundred more each day till I’ve got that library completed.

Waiting its turn.

I feel like I’m finally building on something this year. Each week I’m trying to do more in all phases of my life. Still a ton of room for improvement but I don’t feel like I’m treading water in the same place. I don’t even feel like I’m in water anymore. Some days like today I wake and realize I have no Nobel Prize winning thoughts to share. That used to panic me and stunt effort and creativity.

I would beat myself up for using an old photo. But I’m content with myself finally. Took some decades but better late than never. So while today I could have accomplished more, I maintained a balance between all the important things in life.

Well, time to go do some fresh images. Have a good week ahead everyone.

Random Thoughts of the Day

Today was the Daytona 500. I used to be entranced by this sport. Watched it for decades but having trouble hanging onto all the new names and the fact my favorite driver has retired. I was encouraged to see all the fans out today. Maybe it is poised for a comeback.

I have a strong feeling its going to be a good week. Well except for the sloppy weather on Wednesday.

The NBA All Star game is an interesting exhibition. But isn’t that what the skills competition is?

I worry about some friends who work so hard. In some ways it keeps them alive and sharp. In other ways I worry it’s shortening their lives.

I’ve got a few old work friends I need to touch base with this week.

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.
