This is a short post today. I have really been contemplating “happiness” lately. I have the perfect wife and family and I love my jobs, both of them. I live on a beautiful spot of land in the best part of the country. My “wrastlin” keeps me grounded and feeling satisfied with my progress. My days are filled with traveling to and from work and the gym. Yet stupidly, I have once again let money make me feel like a failure. Don’t worry I’m already over it, just a fleeting dip into self doubt. Sometimes I feel that if I was rich with money that I could solve everyone’s problems. There are always at least a million things that I could fix with a million dollars. However, we must stay focused on what we have and not what we don’t have. The struggles that I would spare, should not be. Those struggles that seem so bad at the time, are what make us strong. They are temporary. I have missed a few payments in my day and at the time it seemed like the end of the world, but I can’t even recall one specific one now if I tried. To truly help someone is to help them fight through their own struggles. Teach them to handle anything that comes their way. A pile of money would make some things worse, but don’t get me wrong I will still be playing the lottery. I have already hit the jackpot with life. I think about all the folks around the world and in this country that would trade my life with theirs in a heartbeat, think about those poor people in Houston. So I am going to stay focused on what I have.
P.S. Here are a couple of good flicks on Netflix that helped me snap out of it.
