Embracing age.

The older I get, the more comfortable I am with myself; the more at peace my mind is with things.  I am happy as an adult, as a father, as a husband.  While I still struggle daily with other things, I feel good about my general well being.  Gone are the days of needing validation from others.  Gone are the days of trying to be something I'm not.  I accept the cards I'm dealt and I am thankful it's such a lucky hand.  Life is a series of moments.  Stop waiting for it to begin and live in the now.  Curl up with a good book, a movie, some music or video game and appreciate what's here.  Spend time with and care for your loved ones, family, friends, pets, etc., because one day they will not be here.  One day you will not be here.  One day I will not be here.  Take the time to enjoy life.  As my grandma would always say, "One day at a time".  I can live by that.

Living.

Taking it one day at a time.  Making the best of every situation.  Learning along the way.  Giving all the love and support I can to my family.  Doing the best I can.

Malaise Burnout & Apathy

Society is crumbling, people are dying and hate is everywhere.  I used to feel passionate about such matters but it seems the problems never end.  I am starting to care less and less about the horrible news in this world.  There's just so much of it.  It makes me want to cover my head with my blankets, hide in the woods, or in a video game.  The world is one big pissing contest that I don't want to be a part of anymore.  I'm focusing on what's good.  My family, friends, career.  You all can go kill yourselfs if it makes you happy.  Societies have crumbled before.  What makes this one so different?

Well hello LiveJournal. It's been a while.

Time has passed.  I forgot you were here.  Looking back, I see things have changed.  Nice to see you, old friend.

Xmas traveling sux.

I miss my cats. I know I will see them tomorrow, but I still miss them.

End obsessed

I am always looking for closure. I am always looking for the end of a period, chapter, era, what have you. It's strange as if I need it. I long for completion. It's comforting to know I am done. Even if I did not succeed in my endeavors, I still feel like there is a finish line somewhere just ahead of me or behind me. I'm coming up on the next one soon. And then... A new chapter.

Finding myself.

The journey to self awareness can be a bumpy one. It's been a crazy 6 months but now looking back I can say I've learned a lot and subsequently I feel I've become a stronger, wiser, and less whiney little bitch.

Feeling better, thinking +

You're not a quitter when you've tried your best. Some times it's good to know when to throw in the towel and opt for plan B. This seems to be easier now.

Thinking of taking a break from music for a while. Just focus on my family and career. I can't baby-sit metal heads my whole life. Why don't you all fucking get a job!?
