A fresh start! What will you do today?

It's a beautiful October morning here in Michigan. As I drive across I-94 to Kalamazoo I'm noticing the awesome colors of the changing trees. Just driving and thinking about my family, my job , my friends, the people I interact with, and all the other stuff packed in my skull from yesterday and beyond.

Long story short, I'm thinking of ways I can change my life today for the better. Was thinking about even the small things that help make life more fulfilling, meaningful and with purpose. Life is but a blink and every move counts.

I haven't had an epiphany yet but I sure as hell am enjoying this drive.

What are you all doing with this new opportunity today? How are you seizing the day?

It's good to be here!

unseasonably warm weather this week!

Well, 'warm' by New Hampshire standards...

Today is my day off, so the only thing I plan on seizing is another sandwich.

A signature used to be here!

Good post Dex. I am going to

Good post Dex. I am going to have some coffee at a local shop and then go kayaking on a little man made lake about 5 min from my place. Got to enjoy the weather before the snow is flying...

I will make a few comments here & there

read to my kiddos and take it easy. Not feeling so hot today, so I'm catching up on sleep.

was thinking about a lemonade stand

they're legal now with the shutdown, right?

Thanks Dex

I am heading to the beach with my mom who just came to visit me in Toronto.
This morning took time to compose a poem dedicated to Michael Nystrom:

Nice LL. Have fun

You and Dex have a great day. Taking a ride to the beach myself. (I will try and stay away from black Range Rovers as I see my helmet more as a Government Mandated Pain in the A$$, than a weapon :)

Thanks Dex and Carlsbaddj

Had lots of fun.
24C that's I think 75F?

Good for you, Dex!

I too am enjoying cobalt-blue skies, low humidity and autumn colors...enjoy having good health and the ability to see, smell and feel days like this, as there are many who would gladly trade anything for those sensations again.
As for me on this beautiful day...my daily routine continues, I'm job hunting to no avail. There isn't much out there in a VERY wide search circle. Getting close to the bottom now, don't know what I'm gonna do if I don't land something soon. I can't seem to get a job in restaurant, as a ditch-digger, let-alone in a professional office setting. Over-qualified, under-qualified, too old, wrong gender, wrong color...who knows? I occasionally get a "Dear John" letter but no feed-back as to why.
Oh well...the weather is just perfect...so I'll keep the glass half-full and enjoy it!!

Bcfast I got to hand it to you

I know how you must feel inside. I daydream about all the cool things I would rather be doing but feel like I'm on a hamster wheel. I am a risk taker but the hamster wheel is paying the bills. I just don't want to look back at my life in regret.

Half the battle with us is the ability to stop and smell the roses despite the challenges eh?
