Starting the New Year Right
Often we start the new year slowly, sleeping in for the first day. But a few days later, it’s time to get into the full swing of things and get to work on life! Enjoy each new year as much as possible, because you never know what destiny has in store for you or your friends!
This leads me into the segue about my barber! My barber was a thin man who liked sports and was always golfed with buddies when he wasn’t working. Although he appeared fairly healthy overall, I believe that he smoked. The problems with my barber is that he died this year a few months ago from a stroke (he was in his early 50s)! I found out when I went to get my haircut, and as I drove up to the front windows of the barbershop, I noticed that it was empty inside the barbershop and there was a black wreath on a chair beside the door.
I asked the business owners beside the barbershop if she knew what happened, and she said he had a stroke. She claimed that she heard he was watching a football game, smoking a cigarette and drinking a beer when he died so he went out doing what he loved (watching sports). I believe his wife discovered something was wrong when she called him and he didn’t answer (she lives in a different state).
Gradual Carpe Diem
I know we all hear the Carpe Diem spill over and over (carpe diem is latin and means seize the day), but how does one start? It’s very difficult and short-lived if one tried to go hog-wild one day trying to live the Carpe Diem philosophy. So that’s why I’m going something different this year, I’m going to try to phase it into my life slowly!
This is what my New Year’s Resolution is really about!
