I am so happy to rid myself of toxic people and bring some peace to my friends.

Love my job. Today was a fun day. Got to do some new stuff - learn some new skills, add some new experiences. Also got to do the things I love in my work, per the usual. My dog joined me for half the day. Good for him to get out. Next time he may get to meet the "monsters". See how he does with the pack.

Overall - for this moment - I love life. I am happy. I literally have one complaint and it is about my stupid phone which is a minor thing and a great source for testing my Jedi traits. lol Wonderful people in my life, great job, and travel plans this year which I thoroughly look forward to. Gratitude is easy right now. Being a Jedi is easy right now - aside from my phone. So I am using this time to cultivate the reserve. That deep well of calm and patience within. Because nothing lasts forever - this too shall pass - and I want to be ready to face those unforeseen difficulties with the heart and focus of a Jedi.

Tough day today. Not how I wanted to start off the week. Two things to be thankful for. First being that I did just get back from a cruise to Mexico. Got to meet some 49er players and have a pretty chill time. So definitely something to appreciate and be thankful for. I had a good time. But more importantly, on this testing day, is to be thankful for my job (continually it seems). Due to my work I am able to handle this unexpected financial cost. I am not lost, without resources, or unable to shoulder this mark of stupidity on my part. It still hurts, it still is no fun, but I am not in any dire straights or dark hole with no apparent exit. And that is something I am truly grateful for.

Thanks guys for being still here, even when I only come back every few days or weeks or so. Thanks TOTJO for being a place I keep coming back to! And thanks, IP, for keeping me engaged and persistent in thinking things through, and eventually even getting me to take the effort to express the outcomes in my journal. Thank you for the opportunity to do this even in the little time that I currently have left after pursuing all these necessities and priorities of daily life.
