Jan 10th – Friends

This excerpt says it all about me.  My inability to small talk has mad it very difficult for me to make large quantities of friends in my life.   And that’s OK.
Growing up I always had only a couple close friends at a time.   It wasn’t until high school where I because part of a large core group of friends.  But in my adult years it’s was back to the old format.   One or two close friends in addition to my significant other.

I guess friendship or lack thereof is one of the reasons I found myself so unhappy.

My two most close adult friends have both moved on and gotten married.  While I talk to and see them occasionally we are far from well-connected.  Becoming the GM of restaurant put me in contact with a lot of interesting people but sadly…I’m the boss so becoming friends with them is out of the question.

Which leaves me with my wife.  While we have a close connection we have been drifting apart.  Her new job is left us with close to zero face time and the little time we do have is spent catching up on parenting issues, house issues, and anything but romance.

Among the things I want to accomplish this year… Make a friend and or reconnect with Patti.

On a positive note.

Perfect day once again.  I listed more and more items to be sold as I feel my junk get smaller and smaller

I was near the end of 2017 when I realized that my life was totally out of balance. I was 30 and I was working my life away. I did not have strong relationships with my wife, family, or friends. It was around this time that I came across THE HAPPINESS PROJECT by Gretchen Rubin. It was then that I decided to launch my own year long project towards personal happiness for the entire year of 2017.
