Living for the Good Days

Sunday, December 7, 2014

Yesterday was a good lifting day (lifting = Olympic weightlifting = snatch and clean and jerk). I won’t call good lifting days rare, well they’re rare for a Saturday morning, but they’re not all that frequent on any other day of the week either. I live for good lifting days; literally. They make me feel […]

What makes her tick?

People always ask me why I quit my great job. With this perplexed, but sometimes envious, look they don’t understand how or why I would give up that security; how could I leave the thing that both me and my family had always known. For those of you who know me, you know that both […]

Less Text More Action

I don’t know how else to say it….I HATE TEXT MESSAGING! In some ways, it’s genius. In other ways, it’s the destruction of human interaction; the slippery slope from that which is connected and meaningful to that which is isolated and superficial. The genius in texting is its simplicity to communicate logistics and to provide […]

Let’s NOT “just take a selfie”

How did we become so grossly obsessed with ourselves that we stopped seeing everyone else? Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong, but I think social media was originally created to help us keep in touch with each other, to give us a voice, to share information, to educate, and to entertain. What it’s […]

Who’s the Boss?!

So I’m sitting in my Epsom salt bath minding my own business and relaxing when the phone rings… Mom: “Hey, I’m going outside to pour gasoline in this yellow jacket hole. I have some spray too if they swarm out. I’m wearing long pants and sleeves with towels wrapped around my legs, a hoodie, gloves, […]

Your So-Called Problems

I wonder if people have complained as much throughout the history of the world as they do these days? It’s unreal to me. Griping, belly-aching, negativity, pessimism, aches and pains, busy, stressed, blah, blah, blah… We all have issues. I know that. And we all need to vent from time to time. I get that. […]

Buzzkill

You usually hear from me when I’ve had a bad day. Sorry about that. I’m not trying to be a buzzkill or anything. It’s just that life’s best lessons – lessons I like to share with you – tend to be wrapped up in what is otherwise known as a “bad day”. Today was a […]

Why I Quit Dating

I’m pretty sure God speaks to me through my friend Jeannie. He speaks to me when she’s not around too, but that girl, holding nothing back, will say things that hit me right between the eyes. She’s more concerned with the condition of my soul than whether or not I like or agree with what […]

Random Acts of Crazy

Believing that I should quit my very good, very safe job (last year). Believing that I can snatch more than my body weight. Believing that I will write and publish a book. Believing that I can pass the Series 7 exam. Believing that I can pass the Series 7 exam the first time I take […]

100 Years to Try Again

“Time decides who you meet in life, your heart decides who you want in your life, and your behavior decides who stays in your life.” – Unknown My mom recently shared this quote with me.  I’ve been reading it repeatedly the last few days and always seem to fixate on that last part…”your behavior decides […]
