As some of you know my life has been through a lot of changes as of late. Let see in the past few 5 years I was diagnosed with Crohns disease, Had 1 meter of my small intestine removed, medically retired from the USAF, Moved to Nebraska, moved to Florida, Been through a divorce, dated a handful of (not too many) of women re-introduced myself to running not to mention trying to raise an incredible young lady.
Now I am still at my job after 4 years. I am not thrilled with it and I know many people don’t love their job so I try to remember my job does not define me. I wouldn’t mind it so much but I feel as though the people I work for don’t care about my needs and I am just seen as a number. Sometimes it is tough to work for the government. Whenever I want to complain about my job I remember a Drew Carey skit I saw. It goes like this:
“Oh you hate your job? Why didn’t you say so? There is a group for that. Its called everybody! They meet at the bar.”
But, things aren’t all bad. My daughter is fantastic, My girlfriend is great, I have a nice little apartment with a pool , I live 5 miles from the beach I have some new opportunities on the horizon and I am pretty fit. And, I don’t always recognize that but when when I seem overwhelmed and I go out for a long run Things always seem to be clear again. I really needed a long run today so I set my alarm for 4 o’clock and I was psyched to wake up early and get out on the streets. but I woke up at 6:20am and upon further inspection I set my clock for 4pm by mistake. Anyway, I went running with Jordan this afternoon and although we walked a lot we talked too. And that was even better for me than a run. However, I did set my alarm for 4am for tomorrow morning.
I’ll let you know how it goes.
