I'm feeling accomplished tonight. It's been a busy day, but I'm feeling good. I let myself sleep in a bit this morning, then headed to Stettler to take pictures for the paper at the drag races being held at the airport. I'm fairly happy with some of the shots I took, and am glad I … Continue reading Accomplished…
It's been a few days since I've written. Things have been busy. Between work picking up, school, and my photography, I have not had much in the way of downtime, but I'm not complaining. With the weather getting nicer, I've been getting out to shoot more, and have been really happy with some of the … Continue reading Working on “downtime.”

I know I haven't been in a great headspace lately. I know I've been struggling and feeling overwhelmed. The support means the world … Continue reading Heroes
This week has definitely been much slower paced than the few weeks previous. This isn't a bad thing. Since I've been home from Saskatchewan I've been acclimating myself to my new routine at home. It has not been without it's challenges. I'm finding that getting up and moving earlier in the morning is helping a … Continue reading Time, effort, and consistency acclimatizing into my new routine.
Inspiration can be found in any number of places. Today I was introduced to the concept of the 3 ft. world, courtesy of all places, the television show SEAL Team. Two of the team members were talking, and staying in your 3 ft. world was mentioned in passing, so I decided to do a deep … Continue reading 3 ft. World…
Today was a nice low-key day. Finished up some work this morning, then went down to our local business centre where they were hosting a fund-raiser barbecue for our local victims services. I met Lynn there, got a few photos, then this afternoon was laid back. I got a workout in. Only 2.25 miles, I … Continue reading The first step
David Goggins is a motivational person that I have managed to connect with more than any other speaker or writer I have followed. He's honest. He's raw. He makes me ask the question "How far can I go?" His book "Can't Hurt Me" is full of challenges, and pitfalls. In it he speaks how he … Continue reading Book Review; “Can’t Hurt Me” by David Goggins
Well, today ended up being an exhausting day. I did get a lot accomplished thought. First up, I had church this morning, followed by lunch with the usual crew. After I got home, I attempted to cut the lawn while it wasn't raining on us. I got a good chunk of it mowed before the … Continue reading “Don’t quit when you’re tired, quit when you’re done.”
After a few days recovery time, I was back in my fitness studio today. My treadmill time today was 75 minutes, good for 3.5 miles. I was definitely Italy feeling my time away though. I maintained a decent pace for the first two miles, but I had to drop back a bit to finish out … Continue reading How far?
"Be uncommon among the common people." -David Goggins. The quote above came up while I was watching a video during my workout this morning. It's a powerful statement. All through life we are taught to go along to get along. We are taught not to stand out. Com bine that with society's propensity to find … Continue reading Being uncommon among the common
It's hard to stay motivated, life so easily gets in the way. Work. School. The latest, greatest movie. Friends in trouble. There always seems to be something coming up that makes it way too easy to say "I'm too busy to workout today," or "I'll workout tomorrow." The thing is life happens, and it comes … Continue reading Time Management
Road trip! Today I'm on the road to Red Deer to meet a friend I haven't seen in at least 10 years, then I have to be back in Stettler for 3 p.m. for an appointment with H. I called the Chapters in Red Deer yesterday, and found that they had one copy of David … Continue reading Work
This is an older post that I started but abandoned before publishing. I finished it today. Today, I find myself in a contemplative mood. I'm contemplating the British Special Air Service motto, "Who dares wins." In a way this motto parallels my life dealing with mental illness. I get stressed easily. I bite off more … Continue reading “Who Dares Wins”
