Happy Post Easter Monday.
Today, I’m not sure what to write about. I could write about the fact that I’m finally under 300 lbs (@ 297.6) for the first time since I was 16. I could write about how my half marathon training is going and that I finally reached 300 miles for the year so far with 1717 to go before December 31 at 23:59. But I’m not sure I want to write about those other than to say that I’ve reached those milestones like I just did.
Since I don’t have much to write about today, I think I’ll make it a question day:
#50: What’s the most valuable thing you own?
Materially, my computer and my flash drive hands down. I can take losing almost everything else, but losing those two things would cause massive panic attacks.
Non-materially, there are two things that I value a lot:
Number one is the family I married into. I don’t know where I would be without Ray and our kids, and her family. Even with us going through our ups and downs right now with both of us having had weight-loss surgery, she’s part of the reason I’m doing really well right now. She and our kids are the reasons I’m doing a lot of what I’m doing with the weight-loss, the walking, and the driving… because at the end of the day, I couldn’t see my life without them there. I know that’s very sentimental but they are the best things in my life.
Number two is my friends. Sure they drive me nuts sometimes. Sometimes, they walk out of my life and I don’t know if they’re coming back or even if I want them back, and sometimes they carry more baggage than I do, but they’re my friends. Most of them have graduated to being family and those that haven’t know why. Either way, those are relationships I value. Do I own my friends? No, but I value them though.
What are some things that you value in your life right now? Have you told them lately how you feel?
Enjoy your Monday!
