Will it be a good day? Not something I wake up often thinking about but for some reason that thought stuck with me a bit this morning. What makes a good day for me depends greatly on what happens to the people I love. My thoughts are always with them first. My day is predicated on what I can do for them even if it’s just going to work each and every day to provide for them.

If they are happy my life is pretty great. If they are suffering my life isn’t firing on all cylinders. Today it seems to be a mixture of both.

So my thoughts turned to how I can make it better so I got to work on a horse carving for my granddaughter that she has been wanting and if that makes her happy then that will in turn make her mom happy. So let there be sawdust.

Other things are starting to come into focus a bit. I’m at peace with the changes happening at the job. I’m feeling more confident each day that I have found things that make me happy to carry me well into my senior years. I’m doing some things that are healthy for me that I didn’t know were possible. I’m seeing people more clearly than ever. The more relaxed I am the more creative I get.

I’m more at peace with myself than I have been in a long time. I’m touched by people doing great things and hope I can contribute in a positive way. I’m less nervous about my health, at least for the next few months. I don’t let days of pain ruin my day. They might pause it, but not ruin it.

I’m trying to choose to be happy instead of sad. Well, at least the rest of the weekend.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if everyone were happy all day all together one day? That would be a nice wish.

Now is now and life is great –

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.
