Watering myself

Leave a comment

No, I didn’t piss myself. Not that old yet. I’m talking about watering my mind and body. Well, I’m doing a better job on the mind as compared to the body but working on both. Getting my priorities straight and keeping my mental health strong against the opposing forces that come my way.

I’ve had an amazing run of time where doing some physical work hasn’t hurt me. Feeling stronger because of it. Learning to work with age. Taking more breaks. Keeping hydrated and not biting off more than I can do. Who knew taking care of myself would be helpful.

I had a wonderful breakfast with some old friends this morning. Good to see everyone doing well. I get great enjoyment from such long term and solid relationships. Laughter and Love, what my can you ask for.

Well we have known each other so long the abuse also is thrown in but its all a great time. That’s the second get together this weekend with great friends. I’m one lucky camper. And of course, I have my Better Half. My best friend, which might make me the luckiest camper around.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • It’s possible to be tired from doing nothing. At least that is what I’ve heard.
  • We had a conversation about sleep today. Kind of makes me wonder if anyone is getting enough.
  • I’m on a mission to make my work week shorter than the weekend.
  • Can I get a do-over on my stupid years?

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.
