Trying to focus

Leave a comment

Seemed like a good title (trying to focus) for today’s post. As I was squinting through an old pair of glasses I thought about my eyesight, and whats left of it. At least the eye doctor said it hadn’t gotten worse in my last visit. But I’m having trouble focusing and writing the last few days. Maybe I just need to clean the glasses.

Today another school shooting depressed me. There are a lot of sick people with access to guns and I see no end because people want their guns and will fight to their deaths to keep them. So if we can’t take away the guns, how do we identify these people? And I don’t mean after the fact. It seems like this is just another thing in a huge pile that we can’t even discuss. And it scares me to death.

I’m also having trouble focusing because of several things of concern that are working on my mind. Been a while since having those feelings and thoughts. Ain’t life grand?

Maybe I’ve just worked to long without a break. I should focus on some good things going on and let that carry me.

Random Thoughts of the Day

I’ve got news burnout again.

Advice to young people – Start doing what is your passion at an early age and you will have less regret.

Do you ever feel so far behind, that you can kiss your own ass.

What do I want to spend my time doing is a good question to ask yourself each day.

Wow, if only I could focus. I’d do a few hundred more words.

Kind of interesting when tools like spell check disappear. Maybe I missed the memo WP.
