Where ever you want it


I was going to ask where the time goes, but my title says it all. Where ever you want time to go, that is where it will go. The more I get control and think about how I’m spending it the happier I am. And today I’ve made good use of time. At least I felt I did.

Lots of things can get in the way of me using the time I have effectively. Some generated by things outside my control and some of my own making, but of those can be controlled and improved. And the more I practice that now the better I’ll be when hopefully I get the chance to retire in the next decade. That is when a good segment of time will be freed up and under my control again.

The job that pays the bills can really eat up a week and energy along the way. Some days it hard to find a few minutes to ramble on here. I’m trying to make a few more minutes each day now for this and other fulfilling activities.

And while I’d love to start those pursuits yesterday, I also realize I have to plan to survive on less than I’m earning now. The key to life is living long, as long as you can afford to live. Having your health is everything. But not having funds to live off of can quickly impact your health.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I’m down to one pair of reading glasses. I’m one accident away from not being able to read.
  • I wish I became an avid reader earlier in my life.
  • I enjoy working at my Fathers desk. Yes, it’s rather small. It could use a little work. But we are a good team.
  • Sometimes it’s a real challenge to try to keep up with so many people. But it’s a well worthy endeavor.

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. Time is a great paradox. The greatest I think. We have all the time in the world and the only thing we don’t have is time 😇

  2. “I wish I became an avid reader earlier in my life.”, so do I!
