I need some good perspective here. Steve, this should be right up your alley. So lately I'm trying to figure what the hell is going on. I have a decent career, a great gf, a motorcycle, car is kinda shitty and a nice townhome i rent. But I'm still having issues. I barely sleep at night. I'm lucky if I can sleep for 2 hours before I wake up. I feel like I am a prisoner to the debt that I owe (school, motorcycle, minor credit cards). Every paycheck is spent before I get it. I don't have money to go on vacation, nor the time off to do it. I don't want kids, not any time soon anyways, so that's out. I don't have time to workout anymore or work with my music. On the weekends I hang out with the girlfriend, eat food, and try to get drunk at night. I don't drink during the week. Every day I get out of bed, go to work, go home, cook dinner, watch tv and go to bed. As Chris Rock says it best, "I'm bored as FUCK". I'm not crazy, or suicidal, just braindead and lost my reasons to smile. maybe it's the seattle weather or something. So my questions. 1)what makes you wake up every day? 2)how do you cure a case of the "blahs"? 3)what do you see in the future that makes you smile?
