Life Is Mostly Overwhelming

What?
What?

Life. We love being alive.

We dread dying.

In between, we have to carve out our life.  A life that hopefully allows us to not only survive, but also to thrive somewhat.

To have mostly good days, a fair number of “bad” days, and occasionally a few great days.

Bad, good, great.  We will each define these differently, no doubt. That’s okay.  It’s all relative anyway.

So what’s the point?

The point is, what will today be?

Bring It On

Today.  This morning.  Right now.  Bring it on.

What does that mean? Who am I talking to?

First and foremost, I’m talking to myself.  Journaling is a world-class way to self-awareness.

Self-awareness is the most important step towards self-improvement.

My (life) pace does not lend itself to either.

Which is why I write five blogs every day.

What was once impossible, is now business as usual.

Are You “On Purpose”?

The reason I write five blogs (every single day) is because I believe life offers us four big choices.

So, there’s a blog for each of life’s big choices, plus this one.

This blog serves as an Internet storefront, a warehouse, a gathering spot, headquarters, corporate, etc.

Yesterday, I was asked if I’m spread too thin.  Heck yes.  Most people who are employed are spread incredibly thin.

I’m thankful for the thinness.  Hope it doesn’t last forever though. There are too many people who need jobs.

And when you are writing for your young son to discern life’s four big choices, the writing comes pretty easy.
