I’ve been trying to wrap my mind around issues buddies of mine have with being “broke”. Not physically, but in the wallet. It truly baffles me when a buddy will call or message me to catch up and they are telling me how bad life is for them. I try not to offer the “quick fix” but it usually heads that direction. Most the time the issue is money. They can't pay their rent, house payment or other bills. I’m thinking, “Dude, you’re 43 years old and you can’t pay your bills? Why”?
Over the past few months I’ve been doing some major restructuring in my life. I’ve changed my social activities, who I surround myself with, who I strive to emulate, what I read, what I watch and how I live life daily.
I enjoy writing because my mind is like a freight train chugging across the country. It never stops moving. In my world everything I think is important. Many times it’s just a thought that passes by but sometimes I really feel I need to share it. Enter…WordPress.
Reading about fatherhood this morning in The Way of the Wild Heart by John Eldredge. I read Wild at Heart about 10 years ago. Well, most of it. I need to go back and reread it. These are both great books for men to read, especially fathers.
July 17, 1992 I was 17 years old. I’ve known I wanted to serve in our military pretty much since I was born but finally deciding I wanted to join the Army when I was 12. I couldn’t wait to get out of school and never really cared about school cause I knew the Army would teach me what I needed to know.
For years my wife and I have continually expanded out knowledge on supplements and the ingredients that make up those supplements. Years ago we sought after the notion to improve our health by “eating clean” and to educate our kids on that knowledge gained by our own personal research.
I welcome struggle. Too many people fear struggle. They wish “life were easier”. People say life is so hard. No, it’s hard work. We should celebrate struggle cause only then do we get stronger. You want to be tough? You wanna be hard? Push thru struggle, see it thru to the other side.
I've spent the past couple of months researching various natural remedies to issues I've had with chronic pain due to arthritis and aging. Through my studies I stumbled upon a a line of supplements whose products are packed full of goodies. One of these all-natural goodies is Tocotrienols.
I have a hard time staying in bed in the morning. My mind races and the thoughts begin to flood my mind. I toss and I turn. I kick the sheets off of me then pull them up to my neck. I start to get angry then I throw the sheets back with a WHOOSH, sit straight u then spin to the right. Once my feet are on the floor I begin to move like the house is on fire. Sometimes my wife says, “Come back to bed. You need to get some rest”! “Nope” I say, “Time to get to work”.
Many people choose work, money, travel, sex, drugs, alcohol, gambling, adventure, etc. to fill them with that peace. The funny thing is, once you have peace on the inside those external acts will become unnecessary. That doesn’t mean you have to stop doing the things you enjoy but they are just unneeded.
