I Swear I’m Not Crazy

I’m not sure who’s more unstable: the clients I work with or me. 

Internal conflict was/is/will be the source of my demise.

Anyway, remember when power ballads were a thing? Neither do I, but I had a seriously 80’s kick for several years during late junior high and early high school.

That’s a terrible way for me to transition to this song; it’s the closest thing to the modern power ballad. 

Lyrics included with the video. 

 

This is a poor excuse for a blog post, but I’ve had a long day. Which is a worse excuse for a cop-out. 

Ah well.

Fly High

I’m re-organizing and re-prioritizing my life. I’m trying to make changes and hoping for success.

I’ve made in-roads into neglected aspects of my person, and I’m excited for the future.

I’m flying high, carried on the wings of music and friendships.

Fire in My Chest

Too often, I find myself buried in a wave of false excuses and burdensome emotions. These turn into shackles that drag behind me. As they increase, each step grows more labored until I collapse. In these moments, I find the resolve to cut loose and walk free.

Only to repeat the same pattern again. And again.

And again.

I promise each time, this will be the last time. And it never is. I stopped promising and started hoping. Here’s to another moment of re-dedication. Here’s to hoping next time will be better, shorter, easier. I’m done assuming that this will be the last time, but I simply wish for progress. One day at a time.

I have fire in my chest; I have dreams to complete; I wont let myself stop me forever. It’s a vicious cycle, a cliché, if you will, and I’m ready to break it. One chain at a time.

I’ll be here again soon, but maybe next time I’ll find some new ember added to the fire.

Man on fire, hoping to avoid the rain.
