First, I’m sorry for not being able to send everyone a message, I’ve gotten a bit overwhelmed with the logistics of my trip and didn’t portion out enough time to finish up that task. I’ll hopefully get to finishing when I get back.
Where am I going? Lake Mojave! For boating and sun!
Five days of me being able to read while my friends get thrown off of a floating raft being pulled by a boat.
Should be a blast.
So, this is a random jump, but I was thinking about happiness today. I was asked once what makes me happy and I replied that I’m not ever, if only because it is my personal opinion that the moment I’m happy or content I’ll slow down my goal to make things better. Given that for the last few years I’ve been setting up the foundation for the rest of my life, I saw nothing wrong with my personal philosophy.
Today, I looked at what I’ve accomplished, that I’m a consultant on catering events more than I am a worker, that my head is the tool instead of my hands, and I think I can try and be happy.
First step, the trying.
I’m horrible at keeping in contact with people, often using the excuse of work as the walls of my fortress of solitude. It’s just easy to be alone and see people once a month or so. I actually talk to all of you more often than I see those who are in close proximity to me.
So, to combat this, I had lunch with a wonderful friend. We caught up over fried foods and then just meandered about downtown as I told her my plans to kidnap the actors from the Avengers for her in the near future.
I also got to have a conversation with a wonderful friend whom I probably hadn’t actually spoken to in months. Our conversation was decently short, I’m having issues with my microphone, but I sometimes forget the joy those close to me bring. Listening to her, I could remember random events that were eluded to by her. Thus, thus, thus, we made plans. We’re going to the zombie event going on during Comicon next month.
And tomorrow begins days when I won’t think, I won’t overly plan or worry, I’ll just…be. Happiness, you are no longer the long term plan. I laid down the ground work, it’s time to build.
I’m tired, so I’ll make this short.
Don’t know if anyone noticed, but I have yet to really ever pop up any post of my progress. I’m kind of awkward about how my body looks, especially after I had gained so much weight years ago. I’ve been looking at myself in the mirror lately and I think I’ve finally reached a point in which I like my reflection again. It’s not perfect, but it’s good.
Which means I can still do a lot to make it great. :D
That’s it for me, everyone. Hope you all have a great next few days. See you Monday!
