I realized today, even if I don't get everything I want to done, or even looked at, it is the little things that make me happy now. Just taking care of little things during my day, will help put a smile on my face. I know, not so long ago, I would look at all that I did not get done and add stress to my thoughts. Now, it's more, of a "Hey, cool, I just knocked that little task off the list... yeah it's been there a while, but it's done now!". That puts a smile on my face.
I completed a few 'little things' today, and am smiling because of it. Tomorrow, more will be accomplished. That also makes me happy. The fact that I look forward to tomorrow and making plans for the future. It wasn't so long ago, I was failing to look past my disease to the future, because of all the things I couldn't do, as I once did. Now, that isn't the case.
I do look forward to things, and I will do all I once did, not necessarily the same way, but I will get my things done!
Health-wise: Today was a good breathing day once the coffee kicked in. Sleep was erratic again, and an afternoon nap was needed. Hopefully a good night of sleep is in the cards for me tonight.
This blog post is dual purpose. Firstly, I am testing being able to post a blog from my iPhone. Secondly, it is to continue with my regular blog posts.
Today was productive. I made sure the forms for dealing with the IRS were completed and put in the mail. Also, I RSVP'd to my cousin's wedding in May. I'm looking forward to going and celebrating with family.
I also picked up a stock pot. I've been needing one for a while, and with plans to do up Fisherman's Brewis (another traditional meal from home) it was a great time to get one.
No distinct plans for tomorrow, but I am looking forward to another good day.
Health-wise: Today was a slow start to the breathing, but all was good after my morning coffee. Sleep has been haphazard lately, short sleep periods at night and an afternoon/evening nap.
It was a great weekend. I got together with friends, enjoyed their company. We saw the movie Shutter Island, interesting flick... still thinking about the ending. Then the next day, photos while getting together with friends and shooting many many different types of guns... Photos may show up this Photo Friday.
Today, after a full day of fresh air and sunshine, this vampire is achey and tired. Dumped the photos to the computer and liked a lot of what I saw. Early to bed tonight and a good day to come tomorrow.
Health-wise: Doing great, good moving around yesterday outside and maneuvering for photos. A little slow, but that will improve with more moving. Breathing doing good, minus the couple of gunsmoke clouds.
I am retired from the corporate world and cube farms (thanks to developing COPD as a non-smoker). These days I play with cameras and websites.
I am a photographer, website designer and developer by love and passion. I am now taking it to the next level with StephenCoombsStudios.com.
More specifically, I am a live music photographer, club/performance/event photographer and travel photographer. I do theme portraits of an alternative nature (fetish, pin-up, burlesque, etc.) This is mostly because I shoot what I love. As Steve Jobs said, "The only way to do great work is to love what you do." I am very passionate about live music (all genres), club/performance/events and traveling. While portraits engage me, as long as I find the theme/concept intriguing.
Over the last nine of years, I have met and learned a lot about photography by some wonderful photographers who were willing to share their trade and secrets. Thank-you, because of you my photography has improved drastically.
