The Good Life

In my previous post I talk about family that rejected me and my life in which everything a did was belittled and insulted. These are the families from my childhood, and not from my adult life.

I did have the good life once. I was married at twenty and was very happy with a loyal wife (now ex-wife) I would still trust with my life. I had two kids who are adults now. Nobody could ask for a better son and daughter. I could fill volumes with stories from the incredible life, adventures we had. And recently I have gained two grandaughters. Yes I had the good life, I had it all, a life others would envy. But I lost it all, because I thought there had to be something more. I went off to search for a land over the rainbow. I didn't find it, it doesn't exist. I was naive. I now have to learn how to live again.

Anyway, enough of this damn emotional stuff. Check this out: The Purple Planet.

Aww shucks– thanks for the link.

I bet your granddaughters are beautiful, and you'll do just fine. :)

Okay Pal, buck up. Sure you had a good life, but there still must have been something lacking or you wouldn't have moved on.

Hang in there, wait for it to show up, when one door closes another one opens.

You may get a lot of wrong doors for a while, but the prize you seek is behind some door.

Just don't stand around looking at the closed ones, move on, keep seeking, it is there somewhere.

Don't hang on to the past, go seek new doors and experiences, it is there, she is there, looking for you also.

It's a journey to a higher enlightenment.

And last but not least, don't frigging give up. Promise me that you won't give up.

Don't make me come to Alabama and kick your ass. We all love you man. :-)
