Power through


Was not the best start to the day and it didn’t improve physically, but we are forging ahead. Kind of using that logic about a lot of things and I find it working out, both in my personal and professional life. I feel like I’m now in charge. I didn’t have the right attitude for a long time. I was bouncing and letting life take me for the ride instead of riding the wave of my choosing.

It’s also helpful in staying focused during what used to take all motivation away. I’m very proud of getting things done during the most difficult times. Not using excuses to let the day slip by. Only looking forward to what I can do. Today was adding a few hundred images to my photo site and hope to do a few hundred more this evening. I’m also going to warm up that printer and do some 8×10’s. I had wanted to do so much more. I wanted to get out this morning. I wanted to get a few days blogs started. And a dozen more.

Honey, I think we’re going to need a wider lens.

The hardest part when not feeling well is concentration. My mind is all over the place. Constantly trying to refocus. By staying busy at something I enjoy, keeps time moving during difficult spots. Like tonight, I don’t think I’m going to spend hours fighting to find a comfortable position, I’ll just work through it and maybe catch some short naps.

I hope tomorrow is better, but the elements aren’t going to be cooperating. And cold just seems to aggravate any aches and pains that come along. I just thought of several things I’d like to accomplish so I better stop this and get up and to them.

Random Thoughts of the Day

I think I’ll eat another slice of pizza.

Time to mentally prepare myself to help do taxes.

I wish we could have some peace here at home but I don’t see it coming anytime soon.

Hip Hip Horray pain in my hip.

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.
