Simple does it


I was just sitting here thinking about expectations of myself that started to gear up as I’ve been feeling a little better again the last day or two. It seems the more I think about expectations for myself the less I get done. The more I think and then act the more I get done. Just repeating that simple approach, to keep moving forward, the more I’m accomplishing and the less I have time to think about expectations.

Things are looking up.

Because then I can look back at each day and feel good about what I’ve got done instead of looking at a long list that I always make impossible for myself to meet.

If I can get some new images posted, along with a few thoughts then I’m moving forward.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Hopefully, I’ve cut the yard for the last time this year.
  • I wish I could talk without coughing.
  • I have a taste for pizza, is midnight too late to cook one?
  • I’m proud to have a mower that is at least 21 years old. Yeah, it’s going to need a little work this winter but it still runs like a champ. And yes it has some duct tape on it.
  • Make life work for you.

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.
