And just like that it’s November. I’ll be happy to see an end to the political ads and emails!
Last week began with a short hike at Natural Bridge and a visit to the Natural Bridge Caverns before heading a little farther south and hiking McAfee Knob. What a great day of peacefulness, reflection, exercise and fresh air.
On Wednesday I was able to spend the afternoon walking 18 holes at Brookwood with my good friend Scott. The visits to the driving range are starting to pay off, my game is improving a lot. I was able to play this entire round with just one golf ball. Eliminating those two stroke lost ball penalties contributes a lot to lower scoring. I spent a lot of my day Thursday with my dad followed by a surprise date night when Michele’s events that evening were cancelled because of the rain. On Friday I tried something different in the way of exercising, I visited a boxing gym with my friend Aaron. That is definitely a different workout. Saturday morning I attended a humorous, happy hike with the Irreverent Warriors to help in the prevention of suicides by veterans. If you’re a veteran definitely get with me and make sure you do this with me next year. It was fun and the camaraderie was great. Saturday evening was capped off with a party at my friends house with cornhole, lots of food and adult beverages and gathering around the firepit visiting and admiring the full moon. Sunday I helped a friend paint a basement and then capped off the week with another great evening with Michele.
I spent a lot of years working a lot of hours to get to the point where I can enjoy life and spend time with my friends and family and I am taking full advantage of it. I don’t have the materialistic things that most would associate with success but I’d much rather have what I have now. I am thankful to have made the choices I have.
Tomorrow morning, 7:30am eastern standard time, I’ll be hosting a WAM! meeting during which time I’ll be trying to help others to achieve their successes. If you are curious what a WAM! is all about, want to define your success and create and implement a plan to achieve it, email me and I’ll share the link to the meeting with you.
Meanwhile, have a great week and get out there and live, love and laugh!
