Dealing With Setbacks

Journal Entry: Thu Mar 7, 2019, 10:21 AM
(Follow-up to "The Mountain Doesn't Care")  Need a little help.

Trying to keep going, but I just seem to run into new setbacks before I've even dealt with the old ones.  Trying to deal with my health, a few reasonable goals and taking care of my mother.

I keep having doors slammed in my face, new problems crop up and I've hit the wall.

I really feel like giving up completely right now, accepting my fate and turning into a morbidly obese drunken couch potato and dying in twelve years like Dad did.  The hell of it all is, he was an incredible athlete, woodsman and leader as a young man...  I never got to see that person, though.

I don't want to give up, but my body is betraying me no matter what I do.  My mind isn't working right, and recent developments at work make me worry as to my future.

~I really can't be more specific, but I was wondering if anyone can suggest methods to maintain focus on and keep going towards goals... especially when they currently seem, to my tired mind, utterly unattainable or not worth bothering with anymore...

Namaste. :(

Thanks very much for the favorite oh, this really serves to be more of a documentary shot than it does a fine arts shot but it gives you the idea of what is left from the flooding they had last weekend…
