Well my birthday is coming up again at the time I begin this writing it is 3 days away.
Time again to sit in retrospection and recap my year. Take stock of how I have developed.
Well since last year. I have quit two jobs, lost one,moved twice and lost my furry life partner. Battled my depression over Christmas and New Years. That all happened over the course of 9 months.
In March. I chose to leave a bad living situation and relocate over a thousand miles away. I may still be having trouble finding steady work but the positives outweigh the negatives.
- I’ve lost weight.
- I’ve become physically healthier than I have been in a long time.
- Found my spiritual connection to the world.
- Enrolled in school
- Determined my values
- Determined my short and long-term goals.
- Became a Dudeist Preist.
- I’m seeing someone,she’s pretty cool.
- I’m off my meds.
- Dealing with my anxiety better.
- Had 4 pretty bad anxiety attacks.
- Still don’t have a steady job.
That’s all just off the top of my head.
I’m in a transitory phase in my life.
Becoming Reverend Hersh and discovering who this dude is.
Taking it easy. The Dudeist Way is the best change for me. Now I just tell myself this and it helps my anxiety attacks go away.
I’ve had so many positive experiences.
Made new friends CJ an older (black) man who’s a veteran resembles Danny Glover but reminds me of Morgan Freeman, Roswell my friend of Spaniard descent who looks Mexican even though he isn’t,the girl I am seeing with her dark ebony skin and lively attitude she helps keep me grounded and my success coach without that leadership class I would still have no idea where I am headed with my life. And a host of other people have contributed to my growth as a man in this world. All the people online who I may never get to meet in person from those that have been around for awhile to my newly added fellow Dudeists.
My personal development into a better person than I even thought possible. None of it would have happened if I hadn’t taken the risk and left town. The best short notice decision I have ever made.
Next year is the year of 42.
Don’t Panic,Take It Easy,Yes-I know where my towel is and Life Is Just a Ride.
So thank you all for being a part of this journey that is my life.
We are currently in the prologue of a new book for me. So not only am I defining who I am. I am also deciding who gets to stay and who gets unfortunately left behind.
Come abide with me.
Namaste my brothers and sisters Namaste.
The Madman Without A Cat.
