Should I Say, Or Should I Go? – A Covid Moment

Hey all,
So, I was at out the other day doing a supply run. I have a section of the city which has a Walmart, a grocery store, a pet store, a drug store, and a gas station with a coffee drive thru. Boom!

A cold beer ran down my lips, to my chin
in a moment I knew would last a lifetime

all night we competed
best in banter,
best in billards,
best in brew,
but
never best in friends
that belonged to you

When you doubt yourself, you contradict the value you already possess. You’ve come this far, you’ve made it halfway. So, why stop? You got this! Remember, you can achieve anything for no other reason than because it’s you and you will. – Ash

Journal Entry # 169 – Focus On Your Happiness!

When we lose focus on what makes us happy, we wind up fading into the background. The true meaning of life gets obscured. When it does, take a step back, look past all the blur, and the bigger picture will soon become much clearer. – Ash
