Day 34 Why do we wait

3 02 2013

Watching the Super Bowl that has gotten a lot better since the lights went out. We went to a minor league hockey game last night and saw a bad arse fight they two guys acted like the talked about heir mammas in a horrible way. I laughed and yelled like I just saw a home run in the world series I was so excited. Not a good example for my 4  year old but the rest of the night all he said was fight fight.

I had a surreal experience at church this morning. During one of the worship songs I sat in my chair and prayed. You know when you pray sometimes and you lose your train of thought and wander, well I was there. All of the sudden I felt to hands on my back they were the hands of the women. I never looked up and just kept praying. She left her hands on my back until I was done praying. All I had time to do was get a glance and say thank you. When she put her hands on me I focused and I prayed for exactly what I had been struggling with. After church I ran up to her and told her thank you. She said the spirit told her and good things were coming. The woman was 5 rows behind me and had to ask someone to move over so she could do put her hands on me and pray. All I know is that was God telling me I’m listening now get off your butt and start doing.

I mentioned in my last post about the book called 20,000 days and counting.  The author Mr. Smith mentions about a short video called ” When I die: Lessons from the Death Zone” He talked about a ma called Philip Gould and the last two weeks of his terminal life. Here is the quote that stood out: Its only when they say “Philip Gould  you’re going to die. Get used to it. And this is going to happen in a weeks or months” It’s only when this happens that you’re aware of death. And only when that happens also that suddenly life screams at you with its intensity.

The last part “suddenly life screams at you with its intensity” We all have the amazing ability to overlook the intensity of our everyday lives. We get wrapped up in what we mistakenly call the mundane, the grind, the everydayness of life.

Why do we wait? I have no damn idea. I m waiting too. I m not sure what I am waiting for I guess Tyler Wood you have cancer, or Tyler Wood you’re dying but don’t why. I know I get bogged down in the crap, the everydayness. Maybe I want the answers to my questions. Or maybe I m just afraid that I may wind up having the life I deserve and was carved out for me. I m starting small and I need to be held accountable.

What are you waiting for?

Surviving the affair....the cheaters perspective

I cheated. Yip I did it, I am not proud of it, but that won't change a thing. This is my story of me trying to survive one day at a time. No guarantees....
