The Weekend Of The Three Pillars Of Excellence

Over this past weekend I was able to spend time with three huge pillars of my life and I came out alive! I came out more than alive! It was three unique, but equally great, experiences in every sense of the word. 

I spent time with part of my core on Thursday. An old buddy of mine came down and it was just us. My buddy, my wife, and me. A huge part of my core in one room. 

The next night I got to spend time with my everyday friends. Great friends and friends I get to see more than other friends which is always a bonus. We hung out, as we do, and had a great time! It’s always an abdominal workout form of laughter type of night! 

And then Saturday I hung out with myself. My wife was out of town and it was me. Well and Ben of course! It was a great night. Maybe the best night of them all. I had real not fake fun with myself and it was awesome. Almost an “about time” kind of moment, but these last few days have taught me to be grateful for what I have. 

It’s good. It’s been good. It will continue to be good. And it will keep being good. Everything along this journey of mine has been a lessen in patience amongst other things. Our mental health takes time to foster. 

It takes time to break it down as well.

And it takes time to build it up. It takes time to maintain it. 

I look for the immediate over and over in my life. These testing moments fly at me on a regular basis and yet I still find myself unable to just let things happen. 

This weekend taught me a lot and also reinforced a lot of what was and always will be there. I feel thankful. It’s great to really feel something and I’m glad it’s a good feeling for a change! I’m gonna hold onto this!

You got this! I got this! We got this! Let’s keep walking this path together.

Have a great day!

Nurse, artist, musician. One I have done professionally and two I have not😉. I enjoy creating art and music as a hobby. I do it mostly because it helps me to feel better or express something that I feel inside. I am a believer in Mental Health Awareness. My goal is to throw myself out there in hopes that someone sees it and can gain the strength to seek help or keep working on themselves. We are an unfinished product! That's OK!
