Can somebody call me a plumber.

I still got a little shit in my life that I can’t get out.  Haha

All joking aside, Smokey’s been working hard on Smokey.  Weeding through the junk in my head and trying to get and stay focused on what matters in life.  I don’t know how it got so overgrown in my head.  But what matters now is that I see it and I’m getting it cleared out.   Everyday is a new day and a new opportunity, full of it own challenges and sometimes struggles.  No need to worry about yesterday, its gone with the wind and tomorrow; well, lets just say joy comes in the morning, if you get up and receive it.  Smokey out.… Read more

Not much new to report.  Still searching I guess.

Iv’e always heard that admitting there’s a problem is the first step to changing it.  Not really sure I’ve done that yet, maybe I’ve just admitted that I need to admit the problem.  I guess I don’t know how to put words to it, even in my own head.

So basically I’m in my own way……again.

Everything is my fault.  I could blame a lot of things and a lot of people but at the end of the day you gotta take a hard look at yourself.   And you have to take ownership of your own life and all the shit that’s in it and all that’s not in it.

I don’t have what I want because I’m not going for it with all got.  I let myself get distracted by anything and everything that comes my way.  I cut the … Read more

I’m done with this dumb ass dance. It’s time to start solving problems,  If I can’t climb the the tree,  its time for re-enforcements.  They say when life gives you lemons make lemonade.  If what you want is stuck up a tree, call a tree service and cut that mother down and get your damn cat.  Now,  how do I apply that to what I want ?………………….I’ll get back to you guys on that, Smokey’s got some heart searching to do now.  Time to make this happen.  Its 7-12 now, so I’m gonna sleep on it.… Read more

Sometimes life just has more to do than time to do it all in.  I don’t think that if I had the time to be here in the last two months that I’d would of been able to process any thoughts that I would of liked to put down.  Smokey’s Take On It is a blur lately,  like a race car zooming around a track at 200 MPH.  Day in and day out and then months are gone, then years.  Life is starting to feel to short these days to be flying by so quickly.  Its a bit depressing at this moment to think about….All the things to do (that don’t matter), things you want to (the ones that really matter but life never lets you do), changes you to make, the person you want to become but never seem to be.  It started this journey inside myself and I … Read more

Me too.

So where is Prissy?

At the moment she’s actually in the next room asleep; over worked, over stressed, under paid, and way under appreciated.  I’m not taking the blame for all those, but I’m not an easy person to live with most of the time.  I get caught up in my own stress and my over sized, never ending to do list way to often.  I’m constantly  getting upset with her because my hands are so full and it seems like I can’t get a hand.   But the truth is hers are just as full as mine.

She’ll be here when she can.  This place was actually her idea, work has just been overwhelming lately and hasn’t allowed her the time to stop by let it all out.  She should have a bunch saved up (repressed) when she finally gets here.  Then things outta really get interesting around … Read more

So I was wasting time on the internet today (Facebook is such a distraction) and came across an article on the value of our time.  Struck me really hard; 1. because I was wasting time when I should of been working, and for 2. see my post Frustrated.  I’ll sum it up for you guys, gals too(uhhum Prissy).

Time is the strongest currency we have.  Every week we are given 10, 080 minutes to use how we see fit.

How do you use yours?  Do you waste it looking at what everyone else is doing, or not doing on Facebook, do you zone out watching dumb videos on YouTube? Maybe you sit in front of the tv for 3 hours melting you brain, there’s a 180 minutes.

What are you investing your time in?  Are these investments bringing you a return or is that time gone forever?

Do you … Read more

Life’s been crazy the last couple weeks.  If anybody out there has found their way here and read what little is here, I’d bet the feel pretty teased at this point, all that set up and nothing for 11 days. That’s lame.  The tease was definitely on purpose, me just having fun.  Eleven days and no post, most definitely not on purpose.

Been up for nearly 24 hours at this point with only 3 hours of sleep the night before.  Got a call at 3:30am  yesterday morning, buddy broke down on the side of the road.  I love that I’m the friend that get this call, being that I’m hundreds of miles away from him.  See now, not only is Joe the friend that will call at any hour for almost any reason, he’s also the friend that refuses to move into this century and get a smart phone.   So while the rest of the world can look up a tow truck on their phone when they’re miles away from home, Joe has to call me in the middle of the night to find him a local tow company.
