Being Your Best Self Is Part of The ‘Good Life’

Feeling is an important part of a reaction.

Feeling ‘down’, at your best, will produce a small reaction.

If you have excellent experience, mental health and can navigate through life with care, you probably live the ‘good life’.

Feeling ‘up’, at your best, will produce a small reaction.

Learning to decide what to do with your reaction will improve your’s and other’s well being.

The Challenge

Read, write, learn…

It is hard to study.

To find enough energy after a day’s work.

To balance a load that will make it easier to lift.

Read what you need rather than things that only make you feel good.

This can be extended to things I do.

I am not in school.

I am living ‘the good life’

To use this body is a good experience and to balance the work, exercise and play will help me reach this goal.

Much experience will complete this job.

Always to learn to be a better person.

I am as grumpy as hell, Mike

Sometimes, a true statement acts as a reminder as to a true state of mind.

We all do it, ‘fake it till we make it’.

It helps short term, to stay aware of a bad mood and behave like normal to prevent creating a mess. For example, yelling at someone who deserves it, but we need to tolerate (like a troublemaker co-human).

Long term the ‘grumpy Mike’, may need more serious action like 8 hours sleep.

Myth: the manly life

Growing up strong, among good young men.

Getting an education with pride and good standing.

Meeting and marrying the woman of your dreams , to build a family with children and a career to pay off all the expenses.

To retire in comfort and good health and see your children follow in your footsteps.

If and when you fail, compromise, try your damnedest to live ‘the good life’.

Drew Hayden Taylor (no relation), “400 KILOMETRES”

Excellent play, slice of life, modern Shakespeare…

Proper impression or expression,

Does no harm, but tells the truth,

Seems to be genuine about living,

Life Isn’t Too Complicated, I Am

The pain of my life is hard to define.

One day it is a combination of new ideas, old information and people.

The next it is my take on working out my problems with people places and things.

In today’s fast paced environment, I am loosing my ability to change and adapt.

I’ve listened to the minimalist, the spiritual guru and the rest.

I am doing good with my factors: aging, disease and overall health.

I am working on work, exercise and good orderly direction.

I am still trying to accept whomever or whatever.

I can’t always be on top of it all.

There will always be some ups and downs.
