The One Where I am Listening (49 / 365)

Seriously, we are talking about SkyRim?  Again?

Seriously, we are talking about SkyRim? Again?

My son, the 15 year old, loves to jibba jabba, especially about video, board and Youtube games.  You could leave him talking, walk into the bathroom and he would politely wait until you came out and pick up where he left off.

One thing I noticed about this pic is that I am holding my wedding band.  This is a habit I have picked up when I am listening or thinking deeply.  Why is it off my hand you ask?  Well, I had gone from 245 to 277 by our wedding and now am hovering around 360.  I do not want the ring to get cut off my hand, so I wear it around my neck.

One of the things I hate bout this is that if I get into a hurry taking my shirt off (you should know by now I love to be shirtless), I  catch the ring and do not realize it.  I m not good t keeping promises, so the ring is my reminder of the major promises i made Amanda on our wedding day and how important they are to me; she has taken me for worse, now my commitment is for her to love me for better.

Cant wait to have the ring back on my finger.

Namaste.

Yo, yo, yo peeps.  MC MadDisaster here in the scene looking to be seen…

OK, that is just dumb.  I was having a conversation with someone online today and it revolved around why we were part of this “support” group on FB.   I had mentioned the negativity we all began our posts off with, including myself, like:

“I’ve only lost 1 pound this week”
“I totally failed this week”
“….Do better next week”

What I and these other folks were missing was that there was a lot of positives as well, the person that lost “ONLY” a pound should share how she did it with the person that gained a pound.  The individual that filed should see it not as failure, but a lesson, you tried this way and it didn’t work so try this.  Or probably more close, I didn’t try at all.  And finally my favorite, I will do better next time or start tomorrow or how about NEVER?

I stressed to my friends that negativity is how I go to where I am today and I will only be celebrating the positive from THIS moment on.  It will take a lot of work, as I am a natural cynic, but I am going to really find the lesson in all things, listen more and try to be positive.  Otherwise I will be as silly as a one dollar bill in a mad wad of Monopoly money.

Namaste.
