Mid Life Crisis
So I quit my job today. I have no other job lined up but it feels kind of good. I think Kat was right when she said "Good It was killing you". I have never really liked corporate America type jobs.. I usually end up taking that kind of job because it is where the money is. Working for this company though was bad. I swear you could feel the little workers souls being sucked out of them day by day. So hopefully I can get my act together and find something I can enjoy a little more.
I decided to go for a walk today. Get the energy up and try and get my life moving in a better direction. My wife suggested that I go walk in the woods surrounding our town. Now I have lived in this town for over seven years but have never walked in the woods. I had some concern that I would become lost and they would find my bloated body somewhere during the spring thaw. The walk was great and very invigorating. I was a little spooked at first being in the woods.. all alone.. where bears and wild dogs could get at me. I then remembered that bears hibernate during the winter so I felt a little safer.
Until I came across the pond.. dead bloated body.. that kind of freaked me out a little. I did a look around for any packs of wild dogs or serial killers and kept walking.
The path finally opened up into a little picnic grounds with a little pond.. dead bloated body .. and I walked around to the other side. It was a nice little place. There was a dam on the other end and I looked over the side and saw a two story drop to the bottom with water flowing down.. dead bloated body .. and was able to successfully navigate this.
I then took an uphill route that branched off my route. I climbed and I climbed with my heart pounding in my chest.. hoping I would not have a heart attack.. and crossed over a little stream.. dead bloated body.. until I climbed to the top of this mountain. On the very top was the most perfect Christmas tree you could ever see. It was bright green and healthy and full of nature. I looked around from my vantage at the top of this huge mountain and the only sign of civilization I could see was Boston to my left. The rest of the world was a sea of tree's and mountains. It was very stunning. I sat down on a rock and just soaked it all in as I caught my breath and tried to get my heart running again. I was seated Indian style and just relaxed and enjoyed the chilly winter air. I finally got my body in some condition to move again and found my way back to my house somehow. I then promptly passed out on the couch and awoke a few hours later. All in all a great way to spend the morning.
