These words keep running through my head.
I’m not sure what this little void inside of me is. When I look at everything from an objective perspective, it looks as though I am doing a lot. But it doesn’t feel that way.
It feels like I have more in me. It feels like I am still scratching the surface.
When I was young, my family used to frequent a neighborhood restaurant called Halligan’s. It was a family owned operation. We would go there maybe once a month and try to have an easy going family dinner. I would always get chicken fingers with honey mustard.
It was a blue collar type place. Full of working class people and every time we went in there we would run into someone we knew.
One of these nights, a family friend stopped by our table to chat. He and my Dad were talking about their work. I don’t remember any of their conversation except for one line. Somewhere in the conversation the man said…
It’s amazing how much you can get done when you decide you’re gonna do it.
That moment always stuck with me. It’s not as though I heard it and thought “there’s advice I need to keep with me.” For some reason I always remembered it. I’m not sure why my subconscious decided to store that memory in the vaults.
I am thinking of that moment now.
I’m thinking that I have a lot more to give.
P.S. – The Eagles lost. It pretty upset about it. But the last two years with my dirty birds have been amazing. Thanks to that team. It sounds stupid and dramatic, but that team has no idea how much this has meant to us. See ya next season. #flyeaglesfly
