Grew up here, age 5 – 23. My Mom still lives here.

The most organized people are the ones who are irrationally passionate about being organized.

Disorganized people (i was one) claim being organized is too difficult. Having been disorganized and organized, i have found that the effort is similar but the hope and freedom are polar opposites.

To be disorganized, for them, would be trauma to their home.

Now that i’m clear

quote about independence
With God as my witness, this is a screen shot from an hour ago. i believe my wife and son always deserve an explanation.

Now that i’m clear, i feel a lightness that is literally indescribable.

Wow.

So cool.

Thriving to the next level.

Life is hard.

i get it.

i’m an alcolholic.

Probably addicted to sugar too.

And i used to smoke cigarettes, but only when i drank. And for 28 years, i only drank twice a week, on weekends and weekdays.

Dysfunction is nothing to be ashamed of.

It’s widespread.

But carrying some (self-imposed) unnecessary burden that it’s my job to fix it was unreasonable.

Ever hopeful. 

Optimistic to a fault?

Then the creative year-long effort to reveal the obvious.

Change can only come from self-motivation.

Let’s just admit where we stand and then be willing to accept it and let go of things we can’t control.

 PS. Facebook does not a solution make. Too public. Too impersonal. Like the dictatorial boss who thinks she can send memos to change her company’s culture…

PSS: Context – this post may seem hypocritical, like the boss writing the memo. Not everything is as it appears – private efforts remain private. i am at peace with the personal face-to-face and voice-to-voice efforts i have made in the past. Moving forward, these are always welcome. And i have retired from initiating them. Not initiating them in 2018 was the equivalent of the USA imposing economic sanctions on a country that takes USA’s generosity for granted, meaning a mental health professional agreed it would be a legitimate approach.

Organized to meet some people

Organized to meet some people.

i know, big deal right?

Mom’s surgery is tomorrow (Wednesday).

Have appointments Thursday and Friday with York College and York Chamber of Commerce while i’m there.

Doing work that matters isn’t for everyone. You have to talk to a lot of hopefuls before you find the few that are committed.
