Today I listened. Not in the typical way. I listened to my body today. Usually I ignore it as much as possible because it can be limiting some days. But today I listened and gave it a bit of rest along with a little exercise. That part of my life is out of balance. As I told my manager last week I’ve been working through times when most would take off sick. I’ve been doing it for decades at my own cost.

Well today I have a new mindset for both work and outside it. Not because of any event. Not because I’m jealous of others taking time. I’m doing it for myself. I’m giving myself permission to be selfish with my own health.

Which reminds me I have to schedule a few appointments with the guys who are the experts in the field of health. Well at least my experts and they have done pretty well so far. But its time for me to help them out. Hope I’m not starting too late but as the saying goes, its never too late getting moving in the right direction.

Random Thoughts of the Day

I take full responsibility for the rain this evening. I went out and washed my better half’s and my car a few hours ago.

You know I want my children to know that I’m the luckiest father in the world to have them. I thank them both for all they do for me.

I treated myself to a mid day nap and now I’m feeling better for it. Hint to self, take a few more.

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.

One thought on “Listening

  1. It is important to do this regularly. If not, sometimes. But not never.
