I haven’t had disappointment stop me in a while now. But today it’s getting a win over me. I’ll get over it in a little while. I lose my confidence and respect for people when I feel honesty is thrown out the window. It affects me to the core when it impacts me.

It makes me mad. It makes me lose perspective. But I’m getting better in dealing with it probably because I getting more practice at it than I would like. I guess that comes from being a trustful person by nature.

It’s so hard not to slip back into a cynical outlook and turn into a hard-ass in dealing with everyone but I know that isn’t right. But boy is it tempting after days like today.

Looks like I’m going to have to rely on good old Karma again. So tomorrow we raise the mast again and head out to sea. I say that because there is a lot of water on land these days and lots of pirates to deal with.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I’m a lucky man to have such a supportive better half.
  • Impacts of people aren’t totally apparent all the time.
  • I have to think about eating smart each day to accomplish it. Maybe one day it will be different.

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.
