Man Alive

Yes, I feel alive today. It’s amazing what a good night’s rest will do for me. And with a weekend ahead my mental spirits are rising fast. I can’t wait to get the camera in my hand and get some fresh work done.

Got a jam-packed weekend so I figure it will be flying by as usual. So I’m going to try to soak up every minute of it I can.

The next few days are pretty stacked with things for others but there are a few hours this weekend that I’ll be doing a few things for me. I’m glad I don’t spend a lot of time worrying about that balance. I feel selfish when I do. Actually I’m enjoying the things I do for others very much. I guess I was wise in choosing whom to help.

I’m so glad I was able to break out of a negative outlook cycle of life. When I look at the mistakes it was related to selfishness. Also not appreciating all the gifts I’ve been given in life. Maybe even not appreciating every opportunity. I try to do better each day now.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • It’s better to just do the difficult stuff and get it out of the way than to look at it and wonder about doing it.
  • Even people you should be able to trust can be deceptive.
  • If I can start and finish each day with a smile I’m doing well.
  • I’m in need of some music, and some dinner.

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.
