Day 713 An adventure seeking peace

9 01 2015

My best friend Jim bought me a trip to go to The Sequoia National Forest in California for birthday back in October. On Wednesday we left by car it a 23 hr drive. We decided to make a stop in Vegas For me this is something that is great for my soul. Driving is  soothing for the soul but 19 straight hours driving or riding is rough on the aging old man. BTW if you have never been to Vegas. Just go there are so many things to see here but also so many things you don’t know need to see but you need the experience. I’ll share our experiences in another blog there worth the wait.

I’ve always loved to drive and the drive. My mind clears enough for me to dump the junk and get down to what matters. On I drive like this I’ve talked to God, I’ve reflected on where I’ve been in the last two years, I talked to my dad today, I prayed for many people and let’s be honest I thought a lot about my fear, what i haven’t done, why I did something that I knew wasn’t good for me, I questioned many things and people, I looked at the magnificent creations in our world, the mountains, the desert, how they built roads through it all, the rows and rows orange trees, Hoover dam, vineyards, what it will be like to be in love again and be ready to do anything for that person. Um sure your like well that’s great and! Well I honestly went to find peace. A deep seeded peace that you can only find when you know that your okay. that the people who matter most love you, and God is smiling at who you have become. Sure I have just as many problems as anyone, maybe more difference now is that I don’t concentrate on all the bad anymore. We have two choices it’s a 50/50 split. Look for the good or look for the bad. Only 2 people know the real me and that’s okay. I’ve reserved the deep and best places for someone and it will come. I look for the good I spent 37 years always finding the bad and it got me to Rock bottom. Rock Bottom got me here and I wouldn’t change it. What is here?

For the first time in 39 years I’m at peace in my soul. My soul used to be a dirty, filthy place that everybody always wanted to be in because it was comfortable. Now very few understand me or want to be in my soul. They want what I have but wont try to do what it takes to get there and that’s okay. Your time is coming and all I ask is when you can find peace run towards not away from it. Embrace the good, embrace those want you for who you are, not what you give them and please help and give  yourself to others. When I gave up me and decided helping others is what it was about, now I’m here. My adventure trip of peace has finally come. Until later and just think we have 24 hours to drive back!!!!!

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....

There is a better place than this silence
