Is all I can say after reading a bunch of posts on here. It completely blows my mind the person I have become from 10 years ago. I am the “same” person in a sense, but have yet changed so so much. And I believe for the better.
I finally figured out how to import all these old posts into wordpress and am extremely glad to still have these posts to be able to reflect on the person I was, am currently, and am striving to be.
Now onto my current life. I am a stay at home dad and extremely glad I am fortunate enough to be able to spend time with my little boy, Tristan. He turned 5 months old yesterday! It seems as if the time has just flown by. I am approaching 5 years of marital bliss. I know I have an incredible marriage, and am able to do things and experience freedom most married men can only dream about. My wife has stood by me through all my extreme changes too; I truly believe I would not be the person I am today without her support. I have several rental houses and will continue to buy more. They hold the key to my financial future, and I have not had a traditional job in 5 years or so. With the birth of my son, I have tackled some of the major “issues” that had been affecting my life, for his sake. I have made a huge improvement in my anger issues and hope it will continue to improve until I have complete emotional mastery. I have also pretty much quit all video games, I really do not have the strong desire to play like I used to, although I’m sure I will play in extreme moderation with Tristan as he grows up. I have also lost all the weight I had “recently” gained in the last year. I think I blew up to 160 but am now only a few pounds shy of my high school weight of 135.
I feel I have greatly matured too, after reading a lot of my older posts. I guess that’s just me getting old! Don’t get me wrong, I still know how to party and have actually become heavily involved in the rave scene.
I recently read an amazing book called The Slight Edge. I feel I have been practicing its techniques all these years, which has helped culminate into my current life. After reading so many personal development books over the years, it’s amazing to me that I can still get a lot out of a book when they often say the things I already know, they just say them in a way that I can relate to better.
Anyway, life is going extremely well for me currently, and very soon I want to be able to give back to other people. I want to help others reach their greatest potential and find their bliss. I’m not entirely sure how I will do this whether through a blog or coaching type thing, etc, but I do know I want to help other people. Everyone deserves to be happy in their own way, and I really want to help people find what will make them truly happy.
Anyway that’s all for now. I am so glad I was able to import all my old posts on here and hope to be able to update on here personal updates at least semi-regularly.
Here’s to taking the steps to become the people we truly want to be.
