day 1827 – quick reminder

thank you for dropping this quote off on my desk because it saved me from going down a rabbit hole. i have always been a firm believer that discipline is what got me farther than i would have imagined and this time is no different. coincidentally it’s the turn of a calendar month which is the perfect time to pick myself up and try to turn things around. i’m set on making august a good month and get back to where i need to be – my top form

day 1350 – on my feet

just as i thought the days couldn’t get rougher, more misfortune hit me hard early this morning. i was depressed and ready to pack it in but he reminded me of the positives. at the end of the day, fortunate to know that he’ll take the time to make sure i get back up on my feet. the company i received while doing something i enjoyed helped destress and lifted my mood; realized there’s still a reason to smile. this might be the last time i wear these skates; next time i lace up, i’ll be starting off fresh

it was new years day and i just wanted to be home so i could be antisocial. being rattled and feeling unworthy in so many ways. my disappointment and discomfort loomed over, i didn’t even make it into the gym. instead, i rang in the new year with all sorts of organizational work and kept myself as busy as possible. i worked like a robot and had a productive day, but i didn’t feel much satisfaction. i spent the night spilling my thoughts on the keyboard to erase today and start again tomorrow

killarney taekwondo term was over last weekend, meaning my first real weekend in far too long. spent the day reorganizing my workstation, discarding unwanted material and relocating things to other places so my work area is less cluttered. it also meant throwing out a lot of old junk and dusty paper weights. this is a good reset for a fresh start and be ready for the new challenges i decided to take on. hypothetically, the three monitors should make my productivity go up

take the good with the bad

note that not everyday will be the best day of your life because there’s only one in a lifetime and one must live through its entirety before recognizing that. everyone has a different standard and perspective on what good is, it is just a matter of coping with what’s granted to us because most likely someone out there has less than you and is still content with what they have. i must learn to stay positive even at times when it seems like nothing is going right. always be reminded that one bad day doesn’t stay that way because there will a chance to start off fresh the very next day. as long as the good days outweighs the bad days, there’s nothing to complain about. after all, it’s your life and it’s what you make out of it

day 240 – early morning

need some time to adjust and get my body clock working properly since i haven’t had such an early morning in very long time. thank goodness for the invention of caffeine solves many problems. having some much needed caffeine and coffee art to go along with it to start off my day and keep me awake throughout a super long day. i already can’t wait until i can go home and rest

day 154 – onto a new year

i cant decide whether i should be happy that the year came to a close because time is passing by so quickly. truth is, 2013 has been a rather horrible year for me with many rough times, tough decisions, lost feelings and endless uncertainties. the start of another year is the start of something new. its time to make the changes, take chances and live the life i want. let’s make things happen and make 2014 an unforgettable year
