wrapping up the holiday weekend

Long holiday weekends are nice, aren’t they?  No work responsibilities (if you’re lucky), nothing but friends and family and free time.  I find these weekends – more than the normal too-short two-day weekends, remind me of what my ideal life is and will be – the freedom to pursue my interests independent of worries about commuting or corporate politics or buying "work clothes" just to keep up with the corporate co-worker Joneses.

I thought I would add to the earlier post today and mention that a month ago I was thankful for 10,000 visitors and 20,000 page views.  Today, just three weeks later, I’m approaching 35,000 and 70,000, with almost 300 subscribers.   

To everyone who reads, I’m grateful that you find what I’m writing interesting enough to spend your valuable time reading it!

Love him or hate him, Anthony Robbins has many inspirational thoughts, including this one:  “When you are grateful fear disappears and abundance appears."  That’s how I feel today – so thanks to you for that!

    Re: Thanksgiving – you guys do this holiday right! This is the one time of year when I wish I had dual citizenship.

  • Thanks guys! @Mike – I wish I had triple citizenship in Canada, the US and Mexico and could take ALL of the holidays. I’m definitely not going to win “most dedicated worker” with that attitude but I sure do enjoy the time off, and especially the “family/friends/food” aspect of some of the big holidays!

  • You really have a great site. Since I’ve been reading it, it has grown by leaps and bounds. It looks to me like you’re actually pushing almost 400 subscribers now…
