Staying Alive in year Two…Zero…One…Five
I know I am not the first to write these words, but I can’t resist writing them here and now. Happy New Year, Profound words, I know. All is well in my little side of the planet and I hope that you are experiencing the same peace, joy and love that I enjoy. Right now, it is half-time of a good football game and it is nice to watch a clean, well-played game where I really don’t have a rooting interest. I am actually pulling for Ohio State just because it will send the television pundits into a mass hysteria if Alabama losses.
Everyone is always talking about and making New Year’s resolutions. I am not too big them because the resolution usually represents a want to change something but it doesn’t have the staying power to enact true change. I have found in my life that when I set a goal, it becomes an all-consuming mission that must be completed but if I make a resolution then it dies off a fast death and I return to my normal lazy, neutral position. But I do have an on-going, ever-lasting goal that so far I have been able to continue to obtain.
I always strive to wake up every morning on the right side of the dirt and the goal for the day is to go to sleep on the right side of the barbed wire. I have found that if I can wake up every morning and go to sleep a free man, then it was probably a good day. The trick is to string 365 of those days together and that makes a good ending to the previous year. I hope that we all can continue to string some good days together and make 2015 a wonderful year.
The game is back on and it seems that Nick Saban is still wishing he had recruited a quarterback. OSU is starting to pull away from Alabama. I better get back to the game.
Until next time, keep on rockin.
