Don't Quit!

Don't Quit!

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and its turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When they might have won, had they stuck it out.
Don't give up though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than,
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor's cup; 
And he learned too late when the night came down, 
How close he was to the golden crown. 

Success is failure turned inside out 
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt 
And you never can tell how close you are, 
It may be near when it seems so far; 
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit,
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit!

June Baby!

Holy crap its June already! Shheeesshhhh! Where did the time go.

Still hovering at 240. Stupid really, I know what I need to do.

I am going to be 49 years old on the 21st (Holy Shit!) I would like to at least be in Onderland by my 50th. That is a very attainable goal if I actually got off my ass. If I shot for the moon, I'd like to get to goal and then get skin removal surgery but we will see how it goes.

One thing I will say is I have been doing a lot of emotional work and it is downright draining. Healing from loss does take time and I am glad to be able to have the resources to help me. I know they would want me to be happy and not wallowing in sorrow.

Otherwise, things are getting better. I am almost finished unpacking boxes and I have actually had someone helping me so that makes a big difference.

Until next time...
