I don’t watch as much TV as I used to just a year ago, and that is a great thing. I don’t miss it as much as I thought I was going to. This weekend we was lucky enough to find a Wii Fit and I think it will be dominating the TV for a long time. Not surfing channels all the time anymore prevents me from one of the most gratuitous smirks, every time I saw the show “Touched By an Angel” on the TV guide.
I have a very cynical side despite the fact that I do try to be a positive person and try to make those around me smile. I almost did not post about this because of what the haters might say about self promotions, but haters are gonna hate and well, this is MY blog.
I want to thank publicly my buddy XO for his kind words last Friday. Also Nuke who has left some wonderful comments here and elsewhere that really warm my heart. I’ve had a couple of tough weeks and that post really made me feel like giving it that extra push to try and be happy makes a difference. We cannot all be happy all the time, but I just have to try every single day.
Like I wrote on the comments there, my positive outlook on life does not come from just inside me. I am lucky to have a wife that loves me and has shown me what unconditional love really means. Also having friends that listen to me bitch when things are not going my way. Wook and Protus listen to me at lunch rant about things and it helps me get through the day. Without those outlets life would probably be a lot tougher. However, the important thing to remember when having people that love you around you is that you have to also make decisions about your own life and own them.
I sometimes wish I could do more to help my friends. Watching Daniel go through so much lately has made a big impact on me, because when everything is going wrong we need to remember that life ending is the only problem that has no solution. When a life ends before it even has a chance to start, it leaves a void that its almost impossible to really grasp.
Having a tough time last week was rough, but I made the decisions that I had to change my attitude or it was going to affect me permanently. In the end everything comes back to believing in yourself and being able to put one foot in front of the other every single day.
Banky posted a little challenge that I believe is one of the most useful things I have seen in the Internet in a long time. If you are not satisfied with where your life is right now, give it a try!
So thank you all that stand by my side!
