I’m kind of proud of myself. I wish I had learned some important lessons at a younger age but better late than never. A day like yesterday might have stuck with me for weeks or months. But I’ve let it go today because there are many more positive things in life to focus on and as I’ve learned there probably are many more negative things coming to deal with.
So instead of getting myself in a knot, I’ve turned a corner and I’m back on track within 24 hours. A bit less actually. I regret the time I’ve wasted in the past in anger or worrying about what people who I don’t respect say or do.
So today I’m minimizing the unpleasant parts of the day and maximizing those that I enjoy. Not always an easy task but if that is the focus its something to keep coming back to when it gets out of balance.
The amount of people pausing over the death of Kobe Bryant is impressive. What is more impressive is the conversations about family and friendships and people helping each other strive to become more and better.
Random Thoughts of the Day
- Hi, I’m Mike – I’m a packrat. Not a hoarder, just half that.
- Time to heal, time to feel, time to kneel, time to reel. Yep, the fishing bug is biting again.
- The favorite part of my car during the summer is the convertible top. In the winter it’s the seat warmers. A heating pad on wheels.
- Two nights in a row of 6 hours of sleep each. I know my body likes it and my mind is saying yeah, give me a few more.
