A Bright Shiney New Year to Waste!

Good morning Party People! I thought I'd wait a few days after the New Year to write so as to give everyone a chance to recover from their hangovers.

I spent the new year's eve by working, normally that would be just another depressing facet of working in the restaurant biz but this year I was working for me. This is a big thing, it kind of started the year off right for me, knowing at the drop of the ball I was holding my sweetie in one hand, my camera in the other all the while being on the clock for my own business.

That night I was filming at Club Fulfilled. In case you were wondering, it's a club for larger sized people, a place where you don't have to feel like an outsider just because of your size. I found this place about a year ago and have gone quite a few times to dance. What? Yes to dance! I found out last year that I really love dancing, there's a euphoric feeling that comes over me about 30 seconds after I start moving and shaking, a kind of euphoria that I've yet to find anywhere else in my life. I think performing on stage it the only thing that is more intense for me if that gives you an idea.

I didn't get to dance as much as I'd like to that night as it's hard to hold a camera steady while moving your hips back and forth at un-christian speeds. So I had to divide my time up on the dance floor. Now there are a lot of things I could say about that night, a lot of good things and a lot of bad so I'll just say this Party People.

You get one shot at this life, just one.

When the music is playing and there's a dance floor that's empty why the hell would you be content to sit in the shadows and wait for something good to come your way? If you're at a job you don't like why would you stay there when you know there's something better out there for you? Why would you hold back living your life, getting the most out of it, when you know hat the more you wait the less life you ave to live!

There are a lot of things out there saying that this is the year that it all ends. I see and hear about how there are so many of us that are planning for it all to end, to survive in a post apocalyptic world so their genes can pass on to the next generation. My question is this. If all you can plan for in this life is how it will end, then what makes you think you'll be happy after it all does? It reminds me of an old man who spent all of his time working just so he can retire and be secure, only to find out that he hates not working and retirement is hell for him. It sounds like a waste. He didn't get it, like most of us don't. We get one shot at this life as the person you are right now!

So if this is our last year, let no dream go unrealised! Lets live everyday like it was meant to be lived, like a gift from God that is not to be wasted! If the world ended tonight and I was sent up to the gates of Heaven and they asked me,"Did you make to most of the time you had?"

I'd say," There was a about 10 years where I didn't, where I lost my way, but the last 6 years I made the most out of it.It was those last six where I got it right and I have no regrets about anything I did. Thanks for the time guys, I made sure it wasn't wasted."

It's about 9:15 am at the time of this post, what are you going to do with the rest of your day?

Till next time Party People,
Keep on a Chooglin!
