Are you tired of hearing about how thankful and how excited I am? If you are, stop reading this now! LOL
I begin every morning reminding myself of all there is to be thankful for and that just generates more excitement.
Last week I was able to spend even more time with my father helping him around his house and property, going out to eat with him and joining him at his doctor’s appointment where we received a great report on his progress. I was able to finally join my neighbor for a round of golf and got to know him so much better and followed that up with a little trip to the Outer Banks where I golfed more with a great friend there. On Saturday I went to a pool party with friends and we got to let our hair hang down, cut loose and be silly.
I’m living! How could I not be thankful and excited about that? Well, I could dwell on the lack of money I have to buy the many things I would love to buy, I could be upset about the goals I didn’t achieve and I could continue to make a long list of things that didn’t go my way. I used to be in a place where I focused more on those things but I made a choice to instead focus on what is good and low and behold, I found that there is a whole lot of good in my life.
I want to see other people happy but in order to do that, I had to make the choice to make my own happiness a priority and I have made that choice and I did so without most of the things I used to think I needed in order to be happy.
This week will include a lot of work, a little bit of golf, some quality time with father and my son and then a week in Myrtle Beach with my lovely bride. If you read this again next Monday, I may just be a little more thankful and even more excited.
Have a fantastic week!
