Thinking on a Sunday afternoon...

I don’t want to use this blog to espouse my religious beliefs, but there is a concept I hold to be true that I want to speak on here. I believe that every day we wake up, we have an incredible opportunity…the chance to get it right. I don’t know about you but I screw up every day. Far from perfect, I can see at least one major personal shortcoming every day. Not to say I’m all down on myself, just owing up to my own brand of suckiness.

But I wake up again…not dead yet! So this new day is my chance to get right the things I got wrong yesterday. That’s a pretty cool thing when you think of it. I won’t dwell on yesterday’s suckiness, I’ll put my thoughts & efforts to getting it right today. Will I get it right or screw up again…sure I will, time & time again. But I hang my hat on that chance a new day brings me.

Perfect? Nope! Willing to try, you bet…and I will, every time I get that new day.

P.S. 6 1/2 hours later, the garage is clean and the Daddy Wagon is detailed for the first time in a year. I had to take a picture so I can remember how it's supposed to look.

P.S.S. Deschutes Brewery, Mirror Pond Pale Ale is a good end to a day like this.

  1. Totally agree with you. When I wake up in the morning, I want it to be a new day with a new start. Everyday I want to try and progress forward. Sometimes I take a few steps back, but I learn from it and continue to keep going forward and keeping it positive :) I'm digging the blog. Keep it up!
