Fantastic Reminder

Quick post. It’s important to acknowledge when we feel fantastic. Not just sharing on social media when something fantastic happens.

We know what it feels like to have a blah day for no particular reason. Next time you feel the opposite, when you know you’re going to have a great day regardless of the circumstances, take note.

I had one of these the other day. I was riding in the car and it hit me that everything was awesome, even though it wasn’t. It kind of worried me at first. I immediately tried to think of something that needed to be done or something that was wrong. Even so, nothing I thought of dampened my outlook.

Day 2, we made it!

Day 2, we made it! I’ve felt fantastic the past couple of days. I cleaned a majority of the house Sunday and it didn’t even feel like a chore. I haven’t been smothering myself in thoughts. Make a decision and go with it.

We’re looking at selling our house. We bought ours for $80,000 and the house beside us sold for nearly $200,000. They are similar so we’re hoping to make a lot of money, buy land and a tiny house. All I need is wifi.

Most of my running lately has been easy, just biding time until it’s time to start training. Yesterday I went for 6.16 miles at a 10:38 pace.


Life mirroring the seas’ tides.

Days so happy I never want to die

Days spent in the depths where I’m too afraid to cry

Nights filled with promise of wonders yet to come

Nights consumed with sadness but I have nowhere to run

Evenings lost in thought, happy memories on my mind

Evenings forged in fire with me trying to get by

Mornings bring a sense of breath and freshness is renewed

Mornings dreading all the things a living soul must do
