Work through it


What ever it is, just keep working through it. It’s when you stop that you lose momentum. I had to pause yesterday and this morning and I didn’t like it. Getting this mind working in the right direction again is my goal today. So I’m back to work, I’m back in slightly better spirits and I’m going to power through.

This was not always my mode of operation. I’ve let things slow or stop me far too many times. But now I’m of the proper mindset to just keep moving forward. Its kind of fun. It’s a mental state of mind. The more I get focused on getting back to work or enjoying things the better my life is.

All I know is I want to get to the weekend so I can concentrate on my own work again. While I’m happy with the effort of the first quarter, I know I can do a lot more. So here’s to getting in gear this quarter.

Random Thoughts of the Day

First ride into work with the top down this year. Looking forward to many more.

The last 2 days here in the great state of Maryland have been wonderful weather wise.

I’m having college basketball withdraw already.

Happiness is having enough to eat.

There is nothing more important tomorrow than seeing my daughter and grand-daughter.

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.

  1. The weather has been nice, hasn’t it? I hope your Wednesday is good, Mike!

    • Sorry for the late reply. Yes my Wednesday was a good one. I hope things are going well for you. And yes it is a beautiful time of year. Warm and just before the pollen storm.

      • No need for the apology, Mike! It has been a busy week here. I agree the weather has been beautiful. Personally, I dread the pollen storm (asthma and allergy issues). I do love how much things greened up with the rain yesterday. Have a great weekend!
