I can’t help but get stressed out when people close to me encounter tough times. Got a few of them right now going through changes. But that is life. Change and how we react to it. Each day is like a box of chocolates. Sometimes life greets you with an empty box.

At times things that seem to be catastrophic become a blessing. I once got what I thought was a good job. It lasted about 3 months before I found out what it really was, a nightmare. I then got a job that has been a wonderful opportunity that I have embraced. But after 20+ years that has also gone through several changes, not all to my liking at times so even good things change and morph.

I deal better with change now than I did before but I’m far from perfect with doing it. I do know the more flexible I am the easier I can make adapting to a change. Glad I learned this lesson now instead of fighting it the rest of my life.

I’ve always done well with change professionally within the job. Hell, I’ve driven some of it at various times. But I had issues with the change I did didn’t agree with or understand. I also have trouble having the confidence to make job changes.

I think I’ll learn more if I adapt to change better.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I actually felt bad about not doing a post yesterday. Its because I felt bad.
  • It’s getting sad when we just blow off these mass shootings or even the daily individual shootings each day because another one comes the next day. I’m beginning to think that only when the number of people affected by them outnumbers those who aren’t will there be any action taken.
  • I live in District 7 of Maryland and I’m human and I like living here. Are there sections that need help? Yes. But look at the country as a whole and a lot of it needs serious help. Oh and statistically there are more rats in NYC and Washington than in Baltimore.
  • Let us see, he has called me less than human because of where I live. He has called me unpatriotic because I’m a Democrat. He has called me the enemy of the people because I work in the publishing industry. He knows nothing about me.

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.
