Food for the soul

I was sitting in my room last night, bored, on a Friday…and decided to go to the gym.

So I am mid-workout and I see an empty bench under a Smith machine. I grab it and bring it over to the free weights, and the super fit dude on the Smith machine that was next to it comes over, shakes my hand and says “You’re going great brother.”

It was completely out of nowhere. A dude I don’t know. He had no reason to say that to me, and yet he did…and it was awesome. It fed my soul. It boosted my confidence and made me push harder on the rest of my workout.

In a world that has decided
That it’s going to lose its mind
Be more kind, my friends, try to be more kind

Tonight I am going to my best friend’s house to play board games and card games.

I bought myself a new tool/toy as well. I got a small laptop that can turn into a tablet. Why?

I am going to write my novel. I have had an idea that has rattled around for a while now, and I just need to flesh it out. So I got the laptop so I can go out to places and write. Coffee shops, the woods, while babysitting etc. I am not tethered to my home pc.

I am picturing the book published and people reading it and enjoying it. This will happen. I just need to make it happen.

More later.

Remember, there is more to life than paying bills and dying.
