The Underdog Triumphs

Tuesday, August 23, 2005


Someone wrote me an email today that totally made me feel guilty about something; truth is I forgot to mention my grandfather died from the cancer I am doing a charity run/walk for. I was tired, and needed to get the letter out as the date is growing closer--I'm not good at asking for money, even if it is for a good cause. And I don't know how, but I forgot. I wrote a bad letter. I made a mistake. I make a mistake (or four) everyday.

Someone told me I beat myself up too much about things. Today that person supported me and told me how proud they are of me.

Someone who had known me for a long time reminded me recently that I've crossed a lot of shit off my "Self-Improvement-To-Do list," and I should give myself a break.

Another someone bought me big, baby blue Underdog T-shirt and today I got to thank him for it(he had to call me...But...)

I met two other someone's for dinner tonight and it was fun.

My dad always told me to focus more on the positive then the negative. I have to remind myself that while some "someone's" let me down or make me feel bad, other, more positive "someone's" are there to pick me up. And that makes life good.

Amen! Yes it does. And I don't think the letter thing is that big of a deal.
