Attitude is everything

Yesterday, I found out from a good friend of mine, about a death of a guy I know. I didn't know him that well, but well enough for his passing to make me sad. He lost his life in an avalanche, leaving behind a wife and beautiful baby. But like she said, "He died doing what he loved." It sures makes a person think about life and how short it really is. Make the most of it.

"One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching"

After a nice weekend with a healthy balance of sleep and hard workouts, I feel refreshed and energized for the week. I think I have an all-around better attitude. Sometimes you just need to sit back, reflect, calculate, and you'd be suprised at how wonderful and blessed our lives are!

Attitude is everything, right?

I woke this morning after a glorious 8 hours of sleep and hit the thrillmill for a nice run. The run went well, especially after a not-so-well long run Saturday, so I was pleased. I spent the remainder of the day at work in staff development sessions. Sometimes, days like these make me wish I worked for the government and had the days off, but it was a nice change of pace. Back with the kiddos tomorrow.

I'm doing a study right now called one month to live. The premise is...what would you do differently if you knew you had one month to live. And the next question...which of those things might be good to do TODAY just in case? Really makes you think.

Actually, if I might clarify. Sleep is everything. Attitude comes in second. Nice run. :)
