And then the number changes.

In the past, cynicism and apathy ruled. Rebellion from what everyone else was doing kept me in an aggressive non-conforming state of mind. Fighting the system, only cause it’s there and I was itching for a fight.

The party, and the number changing, was the only thing different about the day.

I half pretend to keep this time, just like last year. The band is loud and I’m wandering the shadows, wishing I was never here.

Somewhere, things changed. This overwhelming hope started to creep in. Little by little, my  disenchantment washed away. Optimism is now first and foremost. The future does hold good things for me, because of the good that chases after me.

I still one better the norm. Resolutions are done away with and replaced with specific goals and timelines.

This is my future and let’s see what we can do with it.

A year goes by and I’m staring at my watch again, and I dig deep this time, for something greater than I’ve ever been, life to ancient wineskins. And I was blind but now I see.

Paying attention while driving

It’s always a good idea to pay attention when you’re driving.

When you don’t pay attention, you do things like smash your sister’s car into to the back of someone else’s SUV.

When you don’t pay attention, you mess up your sister’s bumper and will have to spend part of you savings fixing it.

When you don’t pay attention, people will tease you.

Today was Wednesday (with comments)

It started early (with the dogs).

Breakfast was amazing (with Seth and Mary Beth).

Hanging out was a lot of fun (with the Sponslers).

Talking was a lot of fun (with most of the Sponslers and most of the Harrelsons).

The afternoon was draining (with Karen at Delta Blood Bank).

The late afternoon was not remembered (with a comfy blanket and pillow).

Dinner was a lot of fun (with my Dad).

Worked on a puzzle (with Natalie making zapping noises in the background).

Wrote this blog post (with you in mind).
