Day 3479 – Justin Timberlake Wrote A Really Cool Book

I have to say, I am absolutely loving Justin Timberlake’s book, Hindsight, & All the Things I Can’t See in Front of Me. The design work of each page alone is worth the read, or at the very least, a flip through.

This morning, I came across this quote:

That’s what I love about my job. I love the spaces that are not about the win but the practice.

As I’ve been working with Bret to build our business, I’ve had to grow in a number of ways. While it’s exciting to have a closing and get paid, the more exciting part is the growth and change in myself through the process.

I love this idea of “practice.” With my running, it’s about having a practice, not a finish line. With reading, it’s about enjoying the book I’m reading, not about hitting a number read.

What we practice adds up to some incredible things, so what are you practicing today?

Day 3478 – You Never Know How People See You

I was chatting with someone yesterday and they made an observation about me based on my blog posts. What was so surprising was that I see myself the direct opposite way than they were perceiving….and this person knows me better than most.

But I’m super glad they pointed it out because I was obviously blind to it. Haha, yet another reminder that now is the time to quit this blog. 🙂

So I guess the moral of the story is to be careful what you put on the internet…or….be prepared to not come across as you intended. 😀

Day 3477 – A Further Reason I’m Stopping The Blog

I first want to say thanks to y’all that have reached out about my decision to stop blogging.

I think this morning is a great example of why “it’s time.”

I’m working “out of the office” today and have a very short amount of time to do my morning stuff. I sat down to write a post and had no idea what to write about. I feel like I’ve been phoning it in on here for longer than I should have been.

To put work out into the world that you’re not proud of, or just slapped together, just isn’t how I want to live anymore. I’m not sure what will fill my time once blogging and Facebook (oh yea, quitting that too) aren’t in my life, but I have a strong suspicion I’ll start writing again.

So maybe bookmark my Amazon Author page for when I publish my next book, which will hopefully be my alcoholism memoir. I am sorry to leave y’all seemingly so suddenly, but the stars have aligned and the timing is just right.

Again, lemme know what things you want me to blog about in our time left. 🙂

Day 3476 – Countdown To The End Of This Blog

For many reasons, I made a decision yesterday – I will stop posting on this blog on Day 3500, February 9th. I always thought I would stop posting when either myself or Bret died. When it hit me yesterday, I thought, well, I’m almost to Day 3500, and that is a nice round number.

I’ve posted daily since April 16th, 2011, which is almost 8 years of creating content every day. Friends, I’m tired, maybe a little burnt out, and ready to let this go. I do have to say, when I started this post and added the tag “end of an era” I got a little choked up. This blog has been a wonderful experience and I’m so thankful for everything that has come out of it.

I hope in the free time I’m giving myself, I can actually start writing books again. My poor alcoholism memoir has been sitting on a shelf for far too long. I can’t say where you can follow along with me because I’m not really planning on posting anywhere (which is a really big relief).

It’s been a great ride and I’ll miss connecting with y’all. If you have any questions or requests for posts in the next few weeks, let me know.

Day 3475 – A Fun Marriage Website

I knew we were sneaking up on 300,000,000 seconds married, so I did some Googling to find out when we would. In my searching, I found a really fun website. It will tell you things like:

– What the next anniversary “gift” is.
– How many times you’ve farted since your wedding.
– How long you’ve been married on Saturn.

Have you looked up your wedding date?
