The Constantly Changing Life

I'm not the same person I was when I was 18, 20, or even the same person when I turned 30. I'll be 40 next year and I can say that life is something that is flux all the time. It's rarely static, and always dynamic in the way each life experiance changes you over the years.

Saturday (October 8th 2016) I got married for the 2nd time. Now granted it's been over a decade since I was married the last time. However it is something that feels right to me. My wife Kristi is a wonderful, beautiful woman that makes for a good partner in life. We support each other and we are there for each other.

I never thought I'd get married again, in fact, I was pretty sure I wouldn't get married ever again. After the way my 1st marriage ended. I was pretty sure that marriage wasn't for me. When I got married the first time I was a conservative Republican that voted for President George W. Bush twice. After that marriage I had swung from the right to the left. It's one of the better changes I've made in my life. I voted for Obama twice, and I'll be voting for Clinton come November 8th. Although I did vote for Sanders in the primary.

I have a non-profit that I would like to see get off the ground. The SkyPilot Project, is my non-profit that works to advocate for low-income families and individuals. It's something that once I have the money to really do something I will be putting a lot of time into it. It's a personal project for me as I grew up in a low-income family.

Life is something that happens when you aren't looking or paying attention to it. Jobs change, people come in and out of your life, and you pile up experiences on a daily sometimes hourly basis. It's only constant is that change will happen. It's one of those ironic things in life that you only find out about after you've left school, and started to build your life. Sometimes restarting the building process over and over again because you're looking for that one thing that gives you passion, or that drives you to want to do it day in and day out.

I think that's enough rambling at 2:30 in the morning. Maybe I can get a couple more hours sleep. Insomnia can be a real bitch.
