As many of you know I started posting daily for this month. A challenge from “The Awesomization Nation “ (on facebook). It’s not unlike I would place one difficult task to complete each day and make it number one. It worked for things around the house, at work, with my wife and kids and so it went.
Those were my awesome days not unlike many I see for many participating in this challenge.
I am recalling and passing on things I have learned over a half century. Great Marketing hasn’t changed, but just uses different mediums. In fact it has made more marketers think harder beyond their copy and pasting up ads with wax. That’s just one thing.
I sadly am still tied up more in my work than anything else. In the process I have missed many things, but gained wisdom along the way ( I hope ).
I have been ‘told’ I need to write and clean about 17 months ago. I’m doing writing everyday now and I am thankful! That’s awesome in fact. Cleaning … well it’s been a year since I could vacuum to any good extent as I am unable to.
For almost a month or so I was beginning to be able to, but my WC treatments were taken away and my abilities declined. Now over a year later I am still focused on the wrong thing partly by choice and forced to if I wanted to get better all over again. I needed to ramp up my anger as it helps me to gain strength and help me. All anger isn’t destructive or bad … something else I have learned.
After thinking about Kitty (check out April 24, 2015 Friday – Why Kitty?) I don’t want to miss another minute if I don’t have to. She makes me smile about today and helping me to be in the present and make goals. Everything can be awesome, as everyday can be awesome! Today I made up my mind to clean whatever I can and do little things.
I will shop for sneakers as I need a pair – not want but need. I am going to move forward on being as smart as a smart phone. I am going to buy a couple grocery things I like and not worry that I can’t afford them … I can afford them once today! I am going to start the bathroom shelves and then start to do floor maybe today and work on it tomorrow.
I am happy I took this challenge though at first didn’t know what to do with it .. Every time I just do it over these past 30 years things work out … but if I don’t then things get worse! We both should think about that. My brother did and it started to go better for us both and then he died at 49 and I still don’t know the ‘reason’.
I’m off to do the ‘little’ things! Rick =)
PS got back about 10 PM and in pain with a bad stomach now too! It’s ok.
