Thursday

Another day of waiting… So much waiting… Lots to look forward to this weekend though.

I’m rebuilding a swing, maybe some pics coming later. I’m mowing, cleaning, etc. as usual. It’s Erin’s birthday, I probably won’t see her for the first time in 4 years.

Things are odd lately. It’s good though.

Journaling doesn’t have to be deep does it? Just functional in its own way.

A drive to be the best

I like to think that I work hard, harder than most. I think that I constantly strive to make things better around me. I think that differs from most in my generation who seek to have everything handed to them. I know the value of an honest day’s work and the rewards that can come from it.

I’m typing this with dirt under my nails from changing a set of brakes earlier in the week. I spent another day this week working outside, mowing, trimming brush and just making it all look better.

I’m not afraid to work hard, hard work is what gets you where you want to be. Those who simply inherit their status and place in the world will never realize all that they have and how valuable it is. No matter where you start in life I think working your way up a few levels in the world makes you a better person. We can’t control where we start I realize, some of us are just blessed with a great start in life and others are seemingly doomed from the start, but I think that we should all better ourselves in some way all through our lives.

Sometimes you just have to get dirty and get the job done instead of simply paying someone else to do your work.

This post isn’t as long or as thought out as I’d like it to be but I’m going to post it anyways and see if any comments come through. Any thoughts out there?
