Changes are Coming

Have you ever wanted to do something and never do it?  That is where I have been with this site.  Every week I intend to write about something, anything to post on here.  I just haven’t done it.  And I can’t tell you why.  Not because I don’t want to, I really just don’t know myself.  I will figure this out and start writing about things soon.

Now for the changes that are coming.  You know that I am a truck driver and I have been running a lane between my home in Tennessee and St. Louis everyday.  This year has been a tough one because the parts I haul go to a plant that has shut down for a total of 10 weeks off and on so far this year.  They are shut down again this week and are possibly going to shut down for another week in September and one more in October.  Plus, it’s confirmed they are shutting down the whole month of December.  It’s ridiculous!

The big change that’s coming, I am going to get my own authority again and hit the road.  I don’t want to be gone all the time, but I have to make some real money.  I have one daughter in college and another going to start next year.  I have to start saving for retirement too.  There are so many things I have to pay for and I just can’t afford to stay on with this lane anymore.  Plus, there aren’t any unemployment checks for me when they shut down either since I’m self employed.  So change is coming and I plan on writing about it and a whole bunch of other stuff I do right here.

It Has Been Over A Year

I am not doing well at all in writing blog posts.  Not at all.  And I’m not even sure why I can’t get it together to write.  I had lots of ideas and was hoping to write at least twice a week about them, but…..


This will change.  This is the year I get it together and write.  Love the Grind!  It’s all a matter of loving the daily grind.  Making a daily ritual of writing and doing it day after day after day.  Every Day! The same time every day.  I know that’s what I need.  I also know I do things best when I have a habit.  And if I interrupt that habit I just stop doing it and most of the time I never get back into it.

So now it’s time for a change.  A change in habits.

“To Do Lists” and “To Be Lists”

I often make a “To Do List” so I can keep track of what I need to get done.  But a “To Be List”?  That one got me to thinking.  I am almost 50 years old and have never thought of making a “To Be List”,  never.  A “To Do List” for sure, many of them.  That’s an ongoing process throughout life.  Everyone makes them so they can get things done.  And you know why we want to get things done?  So we can do the things we want to do.
