Me and The Beatles

The saying goes, "Everything is mind over matter, if you don't mind then it will not matter." Good advice most of the time, but I'm a stresser. I worry about everything including things that are beyond the scope of my control. Lately someone much, much older and wiser than myself told me to "Let it Be". Yeah, yeah...old people and Beatles references, right? But after some thought, it makes much more sense. I contemplated every angle of everything I did and still was no closer to understanding why things were...confusing. I took a step back, and "Let it Be"...then it all was clear to me. Sometimes we just need that moment of "Aha". I'm not so worried right now, I have this brilliant plan to escape until I have that Aha moment every time something bothers me. I had a great weekend with four, read that, FOUR days off consecutively! I go back to work tomorrow, but it's safe to say I go back to work well rested and happy for the first time in a while. Funny how time with my boys, a horror movie marathon, xbox, football, hockey, and loads of sleep will make me a whole new me. I thought I'd post some highlights of my R&R.

Slightly bored, but trying to pay attention

And here come our Tigers!

At the end of a long, exhausting day
 See, I do have tons to be happy about. It just took clearing some of the smoke away to see how lucky my life truly is. I've got great friends and family to lean onto when I need them, but sometimes it just takes a little quiet time to reevaluate what's important in life.

Those old people and their Beatles references are helpful. I'm not sure why it's instinct for us to try and ignore their tips. I'm glad you're doing alright :)

I have never been to a football game but I hope I can some day go to one! :D
