Random Thoughts From A Frustrated/Prepared Man

Becoming the man I want to be has no end. It is a constant, ever-changing miracle that I'm never quite prepared for. Sometime it's like a broken record, skipping without end. Other times it's a smack to the face when I was prepared for a punch to the stomach. There are answers that float like a feather...gently gliding into my hands. There are answers that dangle just out of my reach like a kite that's broken loose from it's string. You can chase it all you want but you still have to wait until the wind dies down. I'm waiting for the wind to die down.

What's with all the metaphors and brooding emo-talk? Nothing. Things are okay...kinda. One things for sure, I'm not holding my emotions in. Anyone who knows me knows I can't shut up for more than 5 minutes at a time especially when my heart is broken. Right now I talk about the things that are consuming my life ad nauseam. It's to the point where it's almost detrimental to my mental and physical health.

I know I'm alright because I'm waking up every morning and I get to live another day. I know all this stuff will pass. It's going to take longer than I thought, but it will not stop me from finishing my projects. I just take them one day at a time. One project at a time. One moment at a time. Life may throw rocks at me, but in the words of one of my favorite pro wrestlers"Rowdy" Roddy Piper:

"YOU DO NOT THROW ROCKS AT A MAN WHO'S GOT A MACHINE GUN!"

I am scared, but I am ready for whatever comes my way in every facet of my life

Peaceful Things,

Josh

  1. Josh,

    Whatever life throws at you, know that you have an arsenal of friends at your calling with whatever ammunition you may need.

  2. My sweet son: Like any mother, from the minute you were born I intended to always mask your painful or troubled moments with love, happiness, wonderful memories and peaceful things. Always wishing I could fix SO MANY things, always hoping I would prevail inspite of my own frailties, always knowing you were my special gift to care for, always wanting to do my best, always in awe at the love you share with your wonderful wife, always amazed at the man you have become, and always loving you,
