Day 61 Buck up

22 10 2012

Had an amazing weekend. It started Friday with one of the best football games I have ever seen. I went back for my high school homecoming and got to see a bunch of people who it had been years since I had seen. I also watched my high school being down by 18 points at halftime and to score in the final seconds to win 61-59. The resolve and belief in a high school kid is great.

Saturday I got tot do a little morning training, and got to see my kids at my daughters soccer game. She did amazing. She is one heck of a player. If I could get her to be a little more mean then she would be the complete package. I spent the majority with my Rugby buddies and had  few drinks. It was great to talk stories and laugh about some inappropriate things as well. Also met a great group of ladies that I got to entertain with my stupid jokes. It was great to get a different perspective on life as well from them.

My family spent the majority of today celebrating my mom’s 70th birthday. I got to get my kids which was great and they got to celebrate with my mom, sister, her boyfriend and my nephew. Through my divorce my family has become closer and I missed it for so long. I m going to see an evening movie and get back to the grind tomorrow.

The term buck up means quit being a wuss, weenie, and some other choice words. I got called out by my buddy Jim yesterday and I needed it. See when a friend that has put into  your life and knows you gives you advice or a kick in the ass listen to it. for the first time I didn’t get mad I needed to hear what he said. Buck up, get off your ass, stop feeling sorry for yourself. I have truly been feeling sorry for myself the past two weeks. There are stages in divorce like in death. You better make sure you don’t try to skip a step because if you do you fail. I m  man and I think I can shove pain or hurt under a rug and it will go away. I had some legitimate excuses but excuses are like aholes we all have them. I want to be on of the 2% right now I m one of the 98%. I have to buck up and that I will. I need accountability and I will get if I ask.

I read a lot from this website called the Art of Manliness. A lot of the articles are from the greatest generation. It the men who fought in WW2 and Vietnam. This article is about Getting Tough with Your Self. Getting Tough with Yourself

Heard a great message at Cross timbers Church this morning about faith. Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

Faith does hard things in life ‘s victories, Faith endures even in life’s disappointments. The worst is never the worst.

I know we all struggle with Faith. When we can see it we believe it. I can’t remember the last time though that when I worried about something it got better, but I still do it. God’s right!

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....
