After failing to meet my prescribed goals a week ago, I’ve decided to try again, starting today. Fittingly enough, my birthday and exactly one year prior to a deadline for meeting one of my bigger goals, my weight loss goal. So, let’s journal today and see how far I can take this, shall we?
Yesterday was a good day, in preparation of my birthday I acquired some fine cigars to enjoy when walking with my two best friends Copper and Patrick, aka the best dachshunds in the world. I was able to take them on a long walk, about a mile and a half or so. While enjoying a Kristania robusto from Kristoff cigars. While on our walk a ball came flying over a fence to one of the housing developments across the street from our usual route. So, we walked over and tossed that back into the yard it came from, the ball was wet with what felt like dog slobber, so that was slightly unpleasant but it does mean someone will be able to continue playing with their dog today. I’m sure that makes the dog and their owner very happy.
I’m particularly grateful to the rollers for Kristoff cigars and those under the employ of Don “Pepin” Garcia, I love their work and that hour or puffing on a cigar allows any stress I have to float away. A lot of people will say that smoking cigars is bad for my health, and maybe it isn’t good for my physical health, but it does wonders for my emotional and mental health so I call it a win either way.
I am also grateful for the other bloggers using WordPress, for giving me insight on things I have no real experience with. Things that I’m interested in, like fitness and healthier dieting, but also those things that while I’m not interested in. Things that I feel I should understand more, because they are issues that many people deal with (such as eating disorders and the like) and if I take the time to understand it, I might be able to help someone along the way find a healthier balance in their life. I appreciate that information being out there, and visible so I can learn about it from a less… clinical view.
I think though, that today I am the most grateful for my luck. I’ve been on the planet for 35 years today. I’ve been lucky, I’ve had some friends and acquaintances who didn’t make it this far. I’ve had some who made bad decisions that changed their life, and even though they seem to have come out of it okay, it made things more difficult for them. I’ve been lucky, lucky that not only have I made it this far, but that my bad decisions didn’t lead to any serious new difficulties in my life. Having a poor job history isn’t nearly as bad as going to prison for several years. I can still get to where I want to be, and I can get there relatively easily. I know how lucky I am, and I know that as long as I continue to have that kind of luck, and I put in the necessary hard work that I will be successful and that is all any one can really ask for.
Thank you for taking the time to read my words today.
