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.

Image



Still at the same company, still a weekend warrior, still single, still getting over some kind of random health issue ...

Image



But I'm also still pushing along, still getting after it, and still taking steps, to go somewhere

Image



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.

Image



For some things, being the same as it ever was is a good thing.

Image



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.

Image



I have learned that if you keep up with things that you love, and work hard to do them well, that people will notice ...

Image



... because it's pretty hard to ignore dedicated acts of passion.

Image



So I'm back to my Monday morning city life - a full day of meetings and phone calls ...

Image



Back to needing to hit the gym next on weeknights so that I can keep up on the weekends ...

Image



Letting the days go by, water flowing underground ...

Image



But I'll always know that after the money's gone,

Image



I can always go back into the blue again.

Image




Be Happy!
