Well, you might have been wondering where I have been for the last week or so. I took a break from posting as I was gathering my thoughts about what has changed over the last few months. If you ever wondered, I would like to let you know that taking this job in wonderland was not an easy decision to make. It was a world of unkowns and it did not come with a lot of guarantees on what would come next. At the time, I looked at how my life and career were heading and I had realized that I had hit a dead end. I do not think that I was having mid-life crisis or anything like that; I think that I looked around at myself and could not imagine how a lot of things had gotten to where they were. Most of what I saw was of my own doing whether I realized it or not. I was too fat, I had too much debt, and I was not being the type of father or husband I wanted to be. It is not a great place to be when you look around at all that you have and realize that you have not given your all to those that love you and who think that you are their Superman.
I think it was that thought that led me in this direction. Superman wouldn’t just tinker with stuff and try to fix it. He would grab up the world and spin it around in order to save the day. While I can’t spin the world around, I can certainly fix things in big ways. So, has it worked? I think that it has. A lot of stuff is just going to take time as you can only make money so fast. Other things I can see more clearly and I like where they are going. I am rebuilding the relationships with my wife and my kids and enjoy every moment we get to Skype. It is not always perfect, but I know that we are now truly working as husband and wife and as a family on building our future.
Yes, a lot has changed over the last 100 days and I would have to say that it is all for the better.
