Life Changes

So for anyone who hasn’t read some of my older blog posts, I used to work a security job that I absolutely hated.  It wasn’t a hard job by any means, but the pay was abysmal, and I didn’t support a lot of the leadership decisions that were constantly being made.  Well Thursday was officially my last day.  I received another bogus schedule so I quit on the spot, and I was very happy to do so.

Before anyone decides to bash me for up and quitting my job, I will tell you that I made sure I had a plan prior to doing so.  So about Mid-April I will move up to Illinois where most of my family lives, and will start working for my grandfather’s tree removal business.  I know it’s hard work, but I enjoy hard work as opposed to sitting in a car everyday or watching other people work (security).

While changing my job situation will go a long way toward helping my happiness, there are still many other things that have to be done before I can be fully happy.  Several things I have started to do since quitting to help me on this journey are: I started to workout every day again, I started to focus more on my writing, and while I haven’t quit altogether, I have stepped away from playing so many video games.  That last one has been hard to do as video games have been my release for sometime now, but I want to start getting out and doing a lot more, and once you turn on the video games time flies.

Now as I said there are still more things that need to happen, but i’ll keep everyone filled in as major events occur.  Until next time…

    Completely understand on the video game front. I (we) used to put so much time into gaming. You don’t realize how much free time you actually have until you step away from it. It’s always tempting to go back, especially when new games come out, but I’ve found things to be much better since giving them up. Let me know how it goes, bud. Hope all is well with April and the kids!

    I wish you the best of luck. We will still be here for you if you need us. Love you brother.
