Another Day, Another Few Dollars

Well, I can already tell that the new outlook is changing more than just my thoughts. I actually am happier at work because I changed the way I was thinking about certain situations. You may not understand how important that is specifically, but the process is there. Change the way you think, and the rest will follow. Let your vision for the future lead the actions and decisions you make every day. Perhaps you will be moving toward the desired outcome if you are thinking about what you would like that outcome to look like.

Enough philosophy for today - I'm just staying cool at home in the AC and writing a little.

By the way, the inspiration for this blog started by reading Wil Wheaton's book last year and from time to time finding his blog online (WWdN) and reading it. I found out that a few of my favorite blogs (one is DogBlog) are written using this host and was very impressed. It was inspiring to find that there were things I wanted to share and now had an easy to use forum to do it with.

After reading John Grogan's book Marley & Me, I was also inspired to do a little creative writing. I'm not saying it's always been a dream or anything - just that his voice in that novel made it seem possible to let people who don't know me into my life and have some fun reading some of the experiences that I've had along the way. It made me feel connected to him and his family, if only through the common love of dogs. I missed my beloved beagle Sadie so much while reading that book it made me want to tell her stories. I think she may have her own area here on the blog.
