Life is looking good. I am optimistic and very lucky about where I live, my room mates, and my business. Many have not faired as well as I have in this economic down turn. I have become very frugal. I am postponing frivolous purchases. I am waiting until I can afford fun and games before I purchase them. I am not buying a new car, another video camera, or more fitness equipment right now. I would love to buy some more workout DVDs from Cathe Friedrich, however, that can wait. I am more than well equipped to continue with my work, my quest for fitness, and I have plenty of inexpensive ways to be entertained. I have a good local library to visit, book shelves full of things to read and a netflix account. What more could I possibly want? I even prefer cooking for myself. I have plenty of painting supplies, more than I could possibly go through in a year. I even have plenty of vitamins in the cupboard, I could go a year before I have to go back to Costco for another installment on that front.
They say that the best things in life are free. For me that is really true, I love hiking and visiting with friends. As mid points go, both in my life and my career, I am loving this one.
