Lessons Learned

I’m not sure if I’m writing this blog for my benefit or the
benefit of the reader. I mean writing is therapeutic and most of the things I
write come from personal experience or the experiences of someone I know. So
now I’m writing on my behalf mostly for therapeutic reasons on this little ass net
book because my desk top decided to crash on me with 60 plus blog writings. Of
course, last week something told me to purchase a junk drive and back
everything up but I ignored my intuition and now I’m sitting here with a hard
drive that won’t even power on. So lesson learned #1 would be to always back your shit up!

I am what some would call a free spirit, I have many interests and
I start a bunch of projects that never see the light of day. Hell it wasn’t
until I had to renew my hosting fees and my domain name that I even found the
time to use the web space that I purchased last year to start a blog. Lesson #2
never put off for tomorrow what you can do today!

I see the world as a learning experience and I believe that
people enter your life for a reason, a season, or a life time. It does bother
me when things don’t work out with people quite as planned. I’m normally a
really positive person but lately I’ve been slightly down in the dumps I guess.
I didn’t notice the change in my moods, but Saturday I had two things happen
that brought it to my attention. First my sister said to me “your moods
have been up and down, I don’t know what you gotta do to fix yourself but you
need to figure it out.  Lesson # 3 Accept that some people are only meant to be in your life for a season, seasons change.

Saturday night I got dressed went on a date to the movies to see
Tower Heist (which by the way is funny as hell) and then had a late dinner. My
date said to me you don’t seem yourself, you’re too quiet which is not like you
and you seem distant tonight. I was bothered by the comment because yes, I was
not myself mainly because I would have rather been with someone else. Lesson
#5 don’t use people to fill a void.
After coming home, I really took some time to reflect on some things, and
decided that some things and some situations I just need to walk away from. I
fell asleep in my pitch black bedroom and woke up to see sparks. I immediately
thought ok if I’m dead I’m not supposed to be seeing sparks! Needless to say, I
put a 100 watt light bulb in my credenza and it was suppose to be a 40 watt. It
got over heated and decided to give me a fireworks show. Lesson #6 Warning
always comes before destruction, pay attention to the warning signs.

Sunday, I got up and got ready to work out on the Wii and when I
step on the balance board, it called me obese for the 249th time
this year and then told me “I guess you were too busy to workout yesterday,
huh?” Normally, I wouldn’t care but I found myself cursing the Wii balance
board out big time. I called it a mother***** and then realized I was arguing
with something that can’t even argue back with my ass.  Lessons # 7 don’t take shit out on other people…or objects.

As you can see, it is always a lesson to be learned if you
pay attention and the wonderful thing about having a few bad days is it makes
us appreciate the good ones even more.

New week…new perspective

Until we meet again  :)
