The weather is beautiful this morning. Temps in the low 70’s. Clear skies. It is going to be sunny when the sun does come up.
Drinking my coffee with nothing that makes noise on.
No fan, no AC, no TV, no music. Just……..silence.
Well, world waking up silence….
And, as my head is wont to do when I have no outside stimuli, my Bitch Brain decides to take me on a journey through the past 7 years.
But in the midst of all all that I stopped and just thought to myself that I have actually gotten what I have wanted for all of these years.
Let me explain.
I have always been a distracted person. I have always needed a direct, well documented path to be successful. I am that person who doesn’t really listen to spoken direction, and in the middle of the game, project, whatever, with a completely confused look on their face says, “Um….I have no clue as to what is going on here.”
And that pretty much sums up my life up to now. Through school, college, marriages, career.
Thank god I have had incredible wives who took over the hard job of raising our children. They did an awesome job. And all of my kids are doing an awesome job on their own.
Anyway, the point is that I have known my life that I wanted to live simply, as I do now. But I tried it differently for 30+ years and it just did not work for me.
Living where I do, in what I do, and working at the job I do is exactly what I wanted.
So take that Bitch Brain!
I am a success after all!
