Life happens

Leave a comment

Had a piss poor day. Not enough rest and things didn’t go right in a few areas but that is life sometimes. Kind of glad I get to spend a few minutes here just to calm down and reflect on the good stuff that happens. Simple things like being glad I woke up and could get around and had food to eat and roof over my head.

Actually things started to turn around after my better half showed me a picture of the grand baby this evening. It’s a good thing I can use those events to keep the day going in the right direction. Used to be I’d use a few negative events ruin my day or week. I’m getting better at letting go of the negative stuff.

One time in my life I used the bottle to deal with negatives. That equation is over thankfully. But that was just a bad choice I made. I could have dealt with it like I am now but I guess I wasn’t mature or smart enough.

Sometimes solutions are right in front of our faces and so hard to grasp at the same time.


Random Thoughts of the Day

This is a chilly start to April and I’m not pleased with it.

My mind is in need of a walk. Wonder if the body will comply tomorrow.

Working is fun, if you have the ability to make it that way. Like the old experienced veterans would tell me, “make it work for you.”

You know I usually don’t take the time to fill out survey’s but they kept sending me email reminders and I was so upset with Verizon, I took their survey. Will it amount to anything changing no. Will it fix the issues I have with service or cut back the rate increase they tacked on, NO. So Verizon, you got my opinion. And when the contract is up you will know this long-term customer won’t be back.

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.
