Taking the Time

Leave a comment

If you can help someone or many people have a better life then there is no better gift that you could give yourself than to just do it. I know the days I do something like that, it makes my day feel more complete. It feels like accomplishment even though you have nothing tangible in your hands. Well, sometimes that hug and handshake go a long way.

Taking the time often entails you giving up something most precious to you. Yep, you have to take your time and give it to someone else. Sometimes it tough while you are actually doing it. Sometimes it’s not fun. Sometimes you cross the balance of doing too much by delaying other important things. But that payoff at the end is nice.

Keeping your sense of optimism each day is important.

This is kind of funny because the line above is where I left off writing this post earlier. I was all excited about some pictures I took this afternoon but I believe my oldest digital camera may be on its last legs. I could get the images off if I had a card reader but its download ability seems to have disappeared. I’ve spent some time troubleshooting but without luck so far.

So I’ll reread that line above where I left off earlier to make it to the end of this post because I’ll miss that old camera if this is it – Keeping your sense of optimism each day is important.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Experiences in life aren’t always fair says everyone who ever lived.
  • I thought about taking some snow pictures tomorrow morning but it’s cold outside. Well maybe I’ll go outside, but if I do that cover your ears.
  • I think I’ll go take some steps tonight. Yep, the treadmill comes alive.
  • One good way to make people happy is to listen.

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.
