The Journey Day 62 02.11.20

Day 62. Day 59 of #75HARD. I’ve got 17 days of #75HARD left and my sphincter is tightening up a little more every day. So much shit is out of our control. All I can do is hope to wake up. All I can do is pray that I’ll make it through the day. All I can do is what’s in front of me. All I can do is pray for no injuries, no sickness, no personal life mayhem. And if all that falls in place, I’ve GOT TO GET SHIT DONE. Can anyone relate?

“We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.”
– Thornton Wilder

Don’t overcomplicate matters or confuse yourself with fearful beliefs.

Be aware when little changes begin so that you will be prepared for big changes when they come.

Adapt fast. Or do not adapt at all. Someone else has designs on your parking spot.

I think I could turn and live with animals. They do not sweat and whine about their condition. Not one is dissatisfied. 
–Walt Whitman

Listening to and reporting on the talk inside of my head:
I’m stronger today than I’ve been in a long time. I feel more resilient. The Bob Seger song, Like a Rock comes to mind. I haven’t felt this way–10 feet tall and bulletproof–since I was in high school. I’m ready to take on the world again, and this time I’m not a snot-nosed kid without a clue. I’m a bad-ass motherfucker with a shit-ton of world experience ready to take territory and stick a flag in it for as long as the good Lord will let me stay on planet earth. Let’s go!
