Positive Thinking is Awesome

This is me in 2  years if I continue to make posts like this.  I'm the one on the left.

Recently I’ve been feeling pretty good about myself in a way that only a man can… In my pants. Ok just kidding, I always feel pretty good about myself there. But seriously, I made up my mind to focus on the positive things in my life instead of dwelling on the negative.

Despite the undertow of self-doubt I’ve made a decision to continue to feel good about my life. Fundamentally that’s really all there is to it. It comes down to making a simple decision: Am I going to be happy or not? And so my mind is made up. I am.

I insist on feeling good about what I’m doing with my life and to be okay with where I am at. I will no longer beat myself up for not doing the things I think I should be doing, or want to be doing. Like blogging. (Or not blogging.)

Getting to this point hasn’t been easy and this seems really gay now that I’ve posted it. I am grossly oversimplifying the whole process but whatever, just go with it.

That is all. Been here a week and while I’ve had fun, it feels like it’s been a month.

I miss my friends and my family that are in this area, but that’s still not enough for me to want to stay here for any meaningful length of time.  But hey, it’s been like 13 months since last time, so it’s not all bad.  I have a gracious host, fun coworkers, and also the internet.

But despite that, when I’m here it feels like I’m not living my own life. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I couldn’t wait to leave when I moved away over two years ago, and now every time I come back that feeling quickly returns.

Blah… Whatever, bitches.

Actually, I think it’s your fault. Yes, you!

Here enjoy this: Someone ported mkdong to Perl. Not sure how I feel about that. Bittersweet?

Taking over the internet, one dong at a time.
