Are You Going To Step Up To The Plate When Life Presents Major Opportunities?

Are you going to step up to the plate when life presents major opportunities? You are in control of your own destiny. I always thought that having a destiny in life means your life is predefined. But of course, we know that life is what you make of it. You can have extreme fun or have extreme sadness. You yourself are responsible for how well you do.

It’s funny to think about how much worth you should put on learning as you come up in life and the benefits. When you come from a household where your parents didn’t go to college you kind of don’t take it seriously. Personally, I’ve gone pretty far in my student days but didn’t take too seriously at the end. I’m very grateful for what I’ve learned because it is keeping me afloat at present.

What do I want for my life?

There’s always room to grow though and that’s my goal. I want the better things in life and I’m not afraid to work hard for them.

Drive the fancy car.

A nice living environment

The great life long companion

Good clean living

Over 10 Years Without Sex and I’m Not Crazy

I’ve gone over 10 years without sex and I’m not crazy. Do I want to have it? Yes of course. Will I settle for just anyone? No.  I hope I meet the woman of my dreams but I seem to be looking at the world through jaded glasses of 10 years ago. It’s just like when you search for a job, that expectation of not knowing what’s in store and hoping it’s the right fit. That proof you want to prove to yourself and others that you deserve it. I’ve been focused on that one big push and that one big goal and I’ve haven’t been able to smell the coffee and take in the sites.

What if I never reach my goal? I would be just reaching and never achieving. I’m using sex as a literal meaning and a metaphor of life and wanting to use my skills for what they’re supposed to be used for.

Sugar is So Dam Addictive!

Sugar is in everything!

You can’t get away from it. It’s in foods, preservatives, drinks, alcohol, etc. I wonder if the food industry heads sit in a dark backroom planning to see how next to hook new people for their foods. Once you get on the ride it’s difficult to get off.

My particular weakness is Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice Cocktail with 25 grams of Sugar per 8 ounces of serving.

 

I wonder if the companies that make fruit juices and foods with sugar, know that you can’t stop before devouring these in one sitting? Maybe they’re planning and counting on this? I know the key for me in losing weight is to control the input of sugar. Easier said than done. Right now I can go maybe a couple days and then it hits me I have to have it. It’s like having a crack addiction.

For now, I’ll roll with the punches and work on putting this addiction on hold.

 

Wish me luck!
