So I thought some things through last night and crunched some numbers and have made some decisions about my life and where I can be - literally and figuratively - by the end of the year (hopefully) and I'm feeling a lot better as a result. Which means, among other things, if you follow me on social media you should no longer have to listen to me bitch and whine about missing living at the beach, complaining about having to listen to shit neighbor's dogs barking and snarling all hours of the day and night, anything else that pisses me off (and admittedly it doesn't take much) and how miserable and reactionary all this makes me.
The first issue is fixable for a couple of reasons, the second is no longer my problem as I won't be listening to them forever, and those two things will solve the rest.
But before I get to that place, between now and the end of the year I need to make some personal and professional improvements and changes. And I mean I have to actually act, not just think and plan. I don't mean to sound mysterious or weird and I'm not fishing for interest or concern (real or feigned) especially since I've never been a fan of oversharing, or sharing personal stuff at all. But since this is my personal blog and I've often found it to be a fun and useful diary to look back on, I just wanted to mark this as the night I think I figured out some things that are important to me as I embark on the last few decades of my life and try to get myself into the emotional, psychological, creative and physical place I've always wanted to be.
And now, behold a boatload of inspirational memes I've collected. They're for me, but if they speak to you feel free to enjoy! And thank you to the meme creators (as always, if any of these are yours, please let me know so that I can give richly deserved credit where credit is due).
You only live once. Make sure you at least do that. That's what I need to do from here on out. That's the goal. I pray I make it.
The first day went pretty well. It's so nice not to get cranked up about every damn thing.
Now, to straighten my crown and...I guess we'll see.
