Several Updates…

The job search is going well.  I have an interview today.  As with any interview, you never really know if it’s the right job, if it’s a good fit, if you will rock the interview, if you will stutter and blunder … Just go in positive and do what you can.  I have to say thank you to all that have grabbed my resume and started networking for me.  The more people that see it, the better chances that I will find a job that will help to improve my life!  I’m quite excited about the future.

Mom commented that I have been slacking on my MaxFit updates – it is going really well.  It’s hard, but after a week, the stiffness and general soreness has faded.  You are sore and stiff, but some light stretching helps a lot.  I did mess a day, but in a short while I will go do my first workout of the day, making up for that.  Tonight I will be back on track.  I do hope they make this plan available to the public.  The short nature makes it a VERY do-able plan.

Finally, I have to share an experience I had last night.  I went to the “Street Reach” program with our church.  I helped to hand out a bunch of coats and stuff and hung out for a while afterwards.  I even had the opportunity to fix a man’s bicycle!  Well – at the “end of the evening prayer”, I was holding a man’s hand.  The guy leading the prayer said “Let us pray that people in need find the jobs they need to improve their lives”.  I felt thankful for that, but the next thing really changed my attitude.  The guy squeezed my hand and said “that’s what I need the most, I need a job”.  Suddenly my situation was not 1/10th as bad as I thought it was.  I have a home, a family, a job, a car, food, clothes… I am thankful for all that I have, today.  I hope that I can maintain the “attitude of gratitude” I used to hear about and talk about in AA and stuff.  Helping people in need if far more gratifying than helping bike racers… I can promise you that!
