A POINT OF VIEW: HAVE A GREAT TIME
As we get closer to the end and farther away from our beginning we start to wonder if we’ve had enough fun in our lives?
We wonder if we’ve done enough, seen enough, been enough places and made enough friends away from our regular circle of comfort.
A while back I was thinking so much about this that I even went as far as creating a Facebook page called Racing The End. It’s a hodge·podge of writings, a journal if you will of stuff that’s not only going on now in my life but things that I’d like do and plan to do.
Many of us have this going on in one way or another. Some in the form or an actual written journal, others in the form of a diary and if your like me you plaster all over the Internet for everyone to judge you because you just don’t have enough grief going on in your life.
I share stuff like my medical issues. This is an excerpt from May 2020; “I spent an hour on the phone with a Doctor Today. They just changed my Diabetes Meds and Now they want to add an Extra one that would cost me $157 a month Co-Pay. Who can afford that? Not Me. Plus they want to add a Statin too. That would make it TEN Pills I would be taking a day. Enough is Enough. I’ve just been to lazy to do the right thing. The Right Thing in My Case is Getting Back and Sticking With a KETO like diet Plan until my Diabetes disappears. YES it can be done. I’ve done it 3 times before just Failed to Commit. This Time with your Prayers and GOD’s will I Will Not Fail. Lunch today was a small steak and a salad. For dinner tonight a KETO Shake, and so it starts. Pray for me.”
Wow, talk about pouring everything out there but it’s not all like that. Lots of it is about fun stuff I do as well. Like going to Vegas recently.
“Our trip to Vegas last week was Awesome except for while we were there they had a Cold Front move through and it was 40 Degrees every single morning. We flew economy class on American Airlines and I’ve got to say it was not the best experience. The seats were tight and rather uncomfortable. On one flight the sound on the seat Monitor did not work and on another flight they had No Earbuds available because no one loaded them on the flight in Las Vegas. We’ll be back in May and are flying United this time. With any luck the seats will be a little larger and more comfortable. We’ll see.”
Do your self a favor and start writing your own race. It’s liberating and can make you feel better.
In case your a Vegasite like me here are a few pictures from our recent trip.
Live, write, travel, have as great a time as you can, you’ll love it. Just another Point of View.
