One Day at a Time

These are interesting times for me. The normal grip I have on my life, controlling all aspects, is seemingly covered in grease. Defying my ‘order’ to remain in control and obey my command. The harder I squeeze, the less I can retain control of and slip. But I need to listen. I always need to remind my self of that. Understand how to solve the slipperiness for the solution is there.

All three sides are imbalanced as of late but I will right this ship. I have always checked bravado and ego and now it seems I need to check it even deeper. Pushing forward on career fronts is slow and even while I remain excited about things to come, the horizon seems to push itself out every day a little bit farther. Or stays positioned in the exact same place every day which makes it impossible for me to see my progress, or my regress.

What this does to the mind is troubling. Nothing tastes sweet as the stress from my core seems to strip away anything worth tasting. My parenting suffers. My being the best husband and making my wife laugh often suffers. My ability to stay focused…or just have fun…on the bike suffers.

But this will pass and I will succeed.

I am taking a breath, cycling the rich air through my lungs. Fortunately, it is this air that I can taste. It is sweet. I am alive.

Glad I'm not the only one, running at the same speed as the horizon.
Small moves, man, it'll all come around. I'm still trying to make the first ride of the year. still can't justify it, yet.

Yo, Greg, I know this sounds like a tremendous cliche, but in times like these it really helps to live in the moment. Not that you don't make plans and work toward your future, but it does no good to lose months of your life in a blur of stress and confusion. You've got a lot great things in your life; be sure to milk them for all they're worth!
