Being truthful with yourself

Leave a comment

Today’s Bloganuary question was “What’s a lie you tell yourself?” That is an easy one today. I’ve told myself I’m fine to work the last few days when I’m sick as a dog. I’ve told myself that lie for years and sometimes I pay a higher price. I often just power through it and come out fine on the other end. But I’m in my mid-60s now and this isn’t intelligent any longer.

So I’m thinking of putting myself on the bench for the next couple of days and see if I can get rid of this nasty cough and the elephant sitting on my chest.

My apologies for such a short answer. I probably tell myself a few more lies than that one but time is short and I wanted to finish a post today.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • We are a short distance away from turning this whole country back into the days of the Wild Wild West.
  • Seeing my grandchildren should restore the smile to my face.
  • Unless you’re working for yourself you’re working to make someone or many others rich besides yourself.
  • And there are very few of those people who give a rats behind about you.
  • There are a few exceptions to the previous two statements before this one but they are very few and far between.
  • Sorry, I get a bit negative when not feeling my best.

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.
