Riders: liketoride, fustercluck, and SchralphMacchio Captured Memories: Schralph 2011 Happy Place Trip Music: Talking Heads – Once in a Lifetime [youtube:2f73ero4]I1wg1DNHbNU[/youtube:2f73ero4] Find Your Happy Place, 2012 Edition I do ask myself, “How did I get here,” and if much has changed in my life in the last year. Still at the same company, still a weekend warrior, still single, still getting over some kind of random health issue … But I’m also still pushing along, still getting after it, and still taking steps, to go somewhere I am pretty close to being recovered from my shoulder injury, and I haven’t had any lung issues in the last 2 years. I also just got a huge promotion at my company to become a Director last week, so things are looking reasonably good. For some things, being the same as it ever was is a good thing. As long as I have this place to come back to, as my center, I can continue to push forward in other parts of my life. I have learned that if you keep up with things that you love, and work hard to do them well, that people will notice … … because it’s pretty hard to ignore dedicated acts of passion. So I’m back to my Monday morning city life – a full day of meetings and phone calls … Back to needing to hit the gym next on weeknights so that I can keep up on the weekends … Letting the days go by, water flowing underground … But I’ll always know that after the money’s gone, I can always go back into the blue again. Be Happy!
