Moving Forward

Ah yes…there you are my fellow Wax Porhetoric readers. I know, I know, I’ve been gone for a while. So so sorry for letting you all down but I’ve got my reasons. Some of them good (dog/cat/house-sitting for a friend and working on getting an old computer to work) and some because I’m just plain human (ie, stressed as hell as I try to figure out how to pay bills in this not-so-hot economy). Worry not…I am here!

So what’s on my mind? Well, just the other day I was talking to various people (all at different times) about what is going on in their lives, my life, the world, etc. There is a lot of frustration out there. Frustrations as people work work work and feel as if they’re just spinning their wheels. That’s understandable. I mean, who wants to sit there working working working and then feel as if all that work they didn’t didn’t have any payout? I certainly wouldn’t.

Keep this in mind though…everything you do has an impact. It has an impact on your life and it has an impact on the lives around you. You may not immediately see what that impact is but don’t worry about that. Just know that it does. Once you’re aware of this fact, it’s easier to see the impact anyway. Remember…you aren’t the only one out there. So as you go through your day working away and feeling frustrated, just remember that what you are doing is ultimately moving you forward even if you don’t realize it. It’s that moving forward that is keeping life grand and moving in a positive direction. What are the alternatives? Doing nothing…which can lead you to stand still or worse yet, to move backwards.

Don’t let frustrations get to you. Take a break if you need to and move onto something else on your to-do list and keep moving forward.

Am I that ever-positive guy than never has a down day? Hell no. I have them too. My attitude as a whole is an optimistic fellow who loves life and everything that it has to offer but we all have our down days. It’s ok. It happens. Accept a down day, let it ride, and then move past it. Keep moving forward and ultimately you’ll reap the benefits of all your hard work.

On a side note, as I try to help everyone improve their lives in one fashion or another, I will be partaking in a fundraising ride for the MS Society. I will be riding my bike 150 miles next weekend (June 27-28) up in Rhode Island to help raise money for research and for those in need. If you’d like to make a donation (which I could still use a few to reach my goal), feel free to go to my donation page and donate what you can. Next year I plan on doing a bunch of rides for cancer as I’ve lost a few family members to cancer in the past few years. Down with cancer I say!

Have a great week everyone! Chin up, chest out, and keep moving forward. Remember, a slow crawl forward is still better than standing still or moving backwards.
