Question: What do you worry about most when it comes to your environment?

Answer: I’m not one to worry, but if there’s one thing that would be a concern is if we lost our house. There’s a peace of mind when you think about having a place to come home to, a warm bed to sleep in, running water, and food to eat at your disposal. That was not always the case for me in the past, especially when I was homeless that one semester in college and living paycheck to paycheck just a few years ago. I always seem to find a way to get through and manage as best as I can, so there isn’t much time for worry. I would guess that it was more of a concern about 6 years ago, but not as much today, as Rebecca and I have made a conscious effort to be better about saving for the future, which is fast approaching. I’ve mentioned this before, but it’s hard to imagine that I’m less than two years from 60 years old; my mind and body are still as active today as it was 10 or even 20 years ago, so things just seem like it was last year, and the year before, and the year before. And I think that I’m finally over my COVID vaccine shot that had me wiped out for a couple of weeks. Yes, I did my workouts, but they were decent at best, subpar at worst. The past two workouts were more like normal, so that’s an encouraging sign. Anyway, no worries about environment because life is good.


Other Stuff

During my elliptical workout this morning, this is one of the two songs that I will play to end my workout (this one and One Republic’s “Good Life”). If you watch the video and read the lyrics, this song is about second chances. It’s such an inspiration, that’s for sure. Watch it here:

And here are the lyrics:

I was blown away, what could I say?
It all seemed to make sense
You’ve taken away everything
And I can’t deal without, I try to see the good in life
But good things in life are hard to find

We’ll blow it away, blow it away
Can we make this something good?

Well, I’ll try to do it right this time around
Let’s start over
I’ll try to do it right this time around
It’s not over
‘Cause a part of me is dead and in the ground
This love is killing me, but you’re the only one
It’s not over

Taken all I could take, and I can not wait
We’re wasting too much time
Being strong, holding on
Can’t let it bring us down
My life with you means everything
So I won’t give up that easily

I’ll blow it away, blow it away
Can we make this something good?
‘Cause it’s all misunderstood

Well, I’ll try to do it right this time around
Let’s start over
I’ll try to do it right this time around
It’s not over
‘Cause a part of me is dead and in the ground
This love is killing me, but you’re the only one
It’s not over

We can’t let this get away
Let it out, let it out
Don’t get caught up in yourself
Let it out

Let’s start over
I’ll try to do it right this time around
It’s not over
‘Cause a part of me is dead and in the ground
This love is killing me, but you’re the only one
It’s not over

Let’s start over
It’s not over, yeah, yeah
This love is killing me, but you’re the only one
It’s not over
