I haven’t been on here in a long long time.  I’m trying to get back in the swing of things.  Updates to come…

I will be embarking on a bachelor party to Vegas tomorrow with a crew of 20 dudes.  I am excited, but nervous.  Any trip I’ve taken to LV with my brother and poker friends has been more than enjoyable everytime.  Trips I take with friends that want the “Vegas experience” are closer to a 50% success rate.  By success, I don’t mean winning money. 

I’ve gotten carried away by alcohol and/or gambling on past trips.  However, I am determined to enjoy my weekend.  If this means bringing $50 to a table at one time or paying attention to my drinking levels, so be it.  My brother told me the other day, “You’re pretty damn fun without alcohol”.  I disagree.  I’m awesome without alcohol.  I’m a little more awesome with a little alcohol and much less awesome with a lot of alcohol.  Point taken, Chris.  I’ll behave this weekend.

I’ve felt this song countless times throughout my life.  I felt it 3.5 weeks ago.  Amazing song.  I’m looking forward to posting more often, and writing about the great things I’ve experienced as of late.  Enjoy…

Just went through a break up.  I never want to feel the way I have since yesterday morning.  I have so many mixed emotions right now ranging from a broken heart to relief.  Out of respect of my now ex-girlfriend, I won’t comment on what happened.  I had some of the best times of my life with her and I wouldn’t trade the terrible feeling in my gut right now for the times that were great.  I am sickened and wish I could say I am looking forward to what the future holds for me, but I’m in a weird state of mind and feel I can’t see through the clouds right now…

Mumford & Sons (again)

My girlfriend bought me this cd last week and I must say it is one of my favorites.  There’s not a bad song on it.  This song is amazing.  It speaks for me and how I feel on this very day that I will never forget.

I’ve been so up and down lately with my moods.  Trying to change and challenge myself to become a better person so I can do greater things in life is very frustrating.  I feel change will inevitably fail unless determination and routine change.  Change will fail unless someone is so sick of the way he has lived, that he is unwilling to live like that anymore.  And, even after change has happened, the “comfort zone” of the past will always be hanging around waiting for opportunities to enter your life again.

I don’t mean to be dismal with this post.  It just seems like every time I do something good with my life or make some momentous stride, I always seem to fall backward into a state of unhappiness.  I always fail to continually challenge myself.  It seems like once I make one improvement in my life, I give myself permission to let other aspects of my life to falter.  I feel I constantly have to be on guard to keep myself moving forward, because I don’t want to fall into any traps or habits of the past.

I can say I have done better lately than I had a month, 6 months, and a year ago.  I’ve worked out 3 times a week and, most importantly, working out when I don’t feel like it.  I’ve eaten well for the first time in years.  Things with Melanie are so great.  She is a true blessing and it’s nice having someone in my life that makes me want to be a better person.  I know she deserves the best.  I’ve hung out with friends more and I feel more social.  One aspect of my life is very hit and miss.  I really feel I need to start busting ass at work.  Anytime I put my mind to something, I get it done.  Expect some big news with my business over the next few months.  Things are changing and evolving.  I am becoming the man I always wanted to be.  It’s taken a long time, but a few wake-up calls needed to happen before I realized what I need to do and where I need to be.  Overall, I am happy with my efforts recently and I am starting to enjoy life again.
