« Part 3: where do we go from here Part 4 of just the way I see things.. series Part 5: crap getting deeper, hills getting steeper! »

I needed to do something to try and work my way out of the funk I was in..I was in a dark and scary place for a while..I did what every red blooded wood worker would do.. I made something.. Yes sir, I made a nice Coffin plane.. took me a few days to complete, gave me some much needed tool time, time for reflection, and direction, and sanding..and more sanding… quiet time, and sanding..
Through all this time of dust and dispare, I came to realize that most of what was bothering me was beyond my control, there is nothing I can do to change how or what they do. I’m allowing them to ruin my life even more by letting them control my actions even now.
I am completely disgusted with the entire system, and think that it is now so pro management, that no matter what your condition, or injury.. its set up to lessen the liability.
So hey from here on out, I am only going to concentrate on those things that I can control, and one of them is my attitude. which has of late been less then stellar.
I still think things are in the crapper, and getting worse all the time, but I am not going to let it run me down. Listen, whatever happens, I can only react to it, I have no say in it, not really, no matter what they say.. unless your name starts with Sen. or Congressman. SO and SO…
I am convinced that they are heading us straight into a major collapse, I just hope to be gone before it starts. things can not keep going the way they are, you can only rob peter to pay paul for so long before paul comes looking for whats his..
Anyhow, more things that I can not control, or that I will not allow to control me.. all I can do is protect whats mine, treat my neighbor as myself, and Love the Lord with all my heart..
The world didn’t start with a big bang, but most likely with end with one.. ..........just me saying….Papa

A golden rule for good health, lower blood pressure and less stress – don’t ever worry about things beyond your control. Hang in there and let the woodworking projects help take the stress away.
