I’m loving this weekend so far. And that is because I’m learning to relax again. One of my many flaws is being intense. Sometimes overly, even when the situation isn’t. It’s just hard for me to change gears like that and always has been.

I guess it’s from habit and really not having much time to relax in my life. And I guess I’m naturally hyper. So I should try to be like this guy on the jet ski riding into the sunset.

It might be a late start but I’m trying to take better care of myself. So an early walk was on the schedule today. Actually, I think I’m going to try to fit in 2-3 walks each day this week. Who knows, I might actually start to jog one day.

Lots of early risers.

I helped a complete stranger today. Now that is a good start to the day. So let’s keep it going and see what I can think to do next.

Random Thoughts of the Morning

  • I need to do more for others.
  • If we all thought we need to do more for others more would get done. And while there still would be suffering, there would be a lot less of it.
  • There are a lot of terrible things being done in the name of good things.
  • I wonder if it’s too early for an ice cream soda?

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 “relaxing

  1. Mike, for as long as I have known you, you have been a very hard worker. Going back all the way to when you got your drivers licensed. You worked to support your family and haven’t stopped in all the 50 years I have known you. That drive has made you the successful husband and father that you are. In that you have modeled this work ethic to your fine children, they too will be highly motivated and successful. Enjoy your vacation you sir have earned it and more.
