Yesterday, I was immensely tired for some reason, but I did not fall asleep at all.  My body was just telling me "dude! What are you doing! Cmon! Let's just sit back down and finish this movie."  And of course I just gave in every time.  I knew I had to go to work at 4pm, but even when I was super motivated and wanted to wake my body with a boost of energy I was just zoning out.  I even had a cup of coffee and there was still no hope.  It seemed like all hope was lost.  So I hopped in the shower, shaved, and headed to work.

(I work at festival foods in the produce department at the De Pere, WI location.  So if you are ever in there, stop by and say hello!)

As I was walking through the store to my department I just got this strange sense of power that woke me up and gave me the energy I needed to go to work.

I wasn't sure if it was the shower, the shave, or the late reaction to the coffee that did it, but I was just so glad that I was no longer zoning and being lazy.

Life can be funny, strange and revealing.

I guess what I am trying to say is that sometimes I can feel like I am going crazy struggling to do what ever it is I want to do.

Despite the struggle,  I move on.  I somehow manage to make it. 

Life can reveal that no matter how dark the tunnel may seem, light is just waiting for you on the other side.

Be courageous, move on, don't give up, and remember to enjoy the journey of life.

Take Care Everyone

  2. The reappearance of Dave! Just wanted to say, hold it together man! Be thankful for what you have, and remember, at least you're not me!

  3. Glad to see you are doing well.
    Are you participating in No-Shave November?

  4. i like reading these too.


  5. I know what you mean, I'm not a morning person at all and having to get up at 5 just makes the day seem to drag by slowly. But I usually find the energy I need to make it. I also find myself taking a catnap everyday too, which makes me feel like I'm old, but I enjoy it. Keep your head up and in the game and you will make it just fine! ever try meditation? Its hard to do at first but a simple 10 minutes of deep meditation will wake me with a burst of energy and stamina as if I had slept for 8 hours.

  6. Penny - Thanks for spending time to read my posts. Sometimes I don't know if people actually read them or not. The comments truly help! I hope the whole family is doing well. I don't get to see you guys too much anymore. I am super busy with school work and life in general.

    Josh - Thanks man. And being you can't be all that bad. You are pretty B.A. in my book. Shooting your guns and such.

    Random Person - I am not participating in no shave novembeard because I have to shave for work. Can only have a mustache and I will not do that. lol
