Balancing act

Leave a comment

With so many things going wrong this week I’m glad I have some good thoughts holding on. Always remember you are in control of your own thoughts. So today I’m going to imagine I’m this guy on the beach walking his dog. That I’m away from the chaos and interactions with people that do me no good.

And tomorrow I’m going to begin anew again because my work week from the job that pays the bills will be behind me and I can get into my crafts again. The growing gap between enjoying one more and the other less is growing by the week. I still enjoy the type of work I do professionally. I still give it a very good effort. But I live for the time to do crafts and spend with family and friends.

I live for my dreams now and not someone else’s who already accumulated more wealth than they need. Another lesson I should have learned earlier in life. Don’t get me wrong. I have nothing against them being wealthy. I have nothing against working for wise businessman. I just would rather work for myself again one day.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Ah, the weekend, just in time.
  • In 12 hours I’ll be hugging my granddaughter and all will be right with the world.
  • Tomorrow is picture day. Taking, editing, posting, sharing and enjoying.
  • If I concentrate on what I’m able to accomplish and not what I can’t I enjoy life a lot more.

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.
