What Is /Isnt Important

Trying to figure out what I think is important in life.

Ok. My kids. I have three boys. And although  they drive me nuts at times, I love them dearly, would die for them, kill for them, without a second thought.

My wife. My Mom and Dad. The few friends that I have. Loyal friends who do not judge a damn thing. They listen. Family.

Those folks that really tell the truth . Not a half truth. The whole truth. You mess up? They tell you. And then you work on it. You get better.

My Dogs.

Pride in your heritage. Pride in where you came from.

Hunting and fishing.

Lifting weights. It is a release beyond a release. Something beyond special.

A great book.

A great movie.

Music that moves you.

What isn't important?

Worrying about what other people think about you. I have been around the most disloyal, backstabbingest people in the world in my life.

They should never take a space up in your head. Why? Because you can not change them no matter what you do. They are too dumb. And they only care about themselves. They all get it in the end, anyway.

Scared people and cowards.  Those living life kissing butt because they are so scared of losing their job. How can they live with themselves? They are gonna be on their death bed one day and they will have nothing to show for it but lipstick marks on someone else's rear end. Awful, just awful.  They should take their nervous ticks and move the hell on.

Politicians and taxes.

Suits and ties and all that is fake to impress. It ain't what you wear, man. It's actions or nothing.

Money that you haven't earned.

Those that think they are better than someone else because of their job or because of their  social status.  And you are on a power trip because.....? You are NOTHING. We all end up in a pine box or ashes in an urn. You are just a bug on the windshield of life.

And to conclude,  here is an awesome song by Danzig, posted on Facebook by Paul Waggener

All About Being a Lifer

What's a Lifer? Someone who isn't in to something for just a day, a month, a's for life. Whether its training or your family or your doesn't matter. You work at it, you build on it, you see the big picture . You don't miss workouts because it means something to you. You are like a Shakespearean actor- no matter what is going on in your life, you block it out when it's time to train. You walk into the weight room and all else disappears. Worry about it later.
