How bad do you want it?

How bad do you want it? I know I promised you content related to my disintegrating concrete driveway but I lost track of time and realized that I am running a marathon on Sunday! Sunday…! Mental toughness…is tough! I consider “How bad do you want it? Mastering the psychology of mind over muscle.” by Matt […]

The frustration of being sick!

Every three or four years, in the spring, I get really sick. It is usually bronchitis that hits me hard and hangs around for weeks. The last time it happened, I ended up in emergency, and took short term leave from my job. It is not fun! I cough non-stop for weeks. My lungs are […]

One semester

I’ve tried a lot of things. It’s fun to try new things. But I’m also a little fickle. So I don’t continue a lot of things. I joke with my close friends whenever a topic comes up: “I did that for a semester”. For example, if we’re in a conversation and martial arts comes up […]

A mid-midlife crisis

I’ve been in a midlife crisis for the last couple of years since I made the choice to be sober. I feel like I’m in the middle of a midlife crisis during my midlife crisis. I don’t love the word crisis so let’s just say I’m going thru a lot of self evaluation. I guess […]

next shot.

I’ve been clean and sober since December 18, 2020. It’s long enough that I’m losing track of how long I’ve been clean. I still feel great.

Living Tired

I’m tired, both physically and mentally. It’s normal for this time of year. I love the summer and I stuff as many activities as I can during the summer months. So when fall comes, I’m tired. This year, it’s more than that. Life is busy. Work is busy and stressful. Relationships are hard. Self care […]

My last post was March 29. I was 49. I can’t believe it’s been a whole month without a post. April flew by so fast. What happened? Well, I turned 50!!! My birthday week in Phoenix was fabulous. Friends, sun, shopping, golf and fun! I went to Top Golf and PF Chang’s for my birthday […]

I’m Hanging in There

When I decided to start a blog post in January 2022, I had no idea what would happen. I suppose I thought I could talk about my most awesome 50th year on this earth and share how I celebrated. I would talk about my favorite things. I would share about my awesome rounds of golf […]
