Dear Self,

For some reason you thought it was a good idea to wake me up at 3:30am.

Thanks for that.

So, what is it?

What was so important you wanted me up and thinking so early in the morning?

Nothing to say, huh?


Well, I’m here…so take your time…



I’m worried I don’t deserve the good things that I have in my life…and that means something bad is going to happen to balance the happiness out.

That’s not very healthy.

Good and bad things happen all the time. Some of it is through my choices, some of it is through luck…but one thing I am certain of, there is no unnamed force out there that looks at me and says…

“Well, you’re just too damned happy and content, here’s a few bad things to bring you back down to earth…”

The happiness and contentment in my life are a result of the way I view things, both the good and the bad things.

I’d like to see all the decisions and choices I have to make as fun, an adventure. I might get something wrong…take the wrong turn, but in the long run it’s going to be ok.

And if its working…maybe I could enjoy that, hey?

The alternative is to be stressed when it’s ‘not working’ and then to be stressed when it ‘is working’.

And that’s a whole lot of boring right there.

Each moment is what it is.

It’s an adventure.
