I can’t believe I’m eating carrots for a snack at 10:30 at night. Like an asshole.

2 Liter of Coca-Cola

2 Liter of Coca-Cola

For someone who likes to drink, having over 67 fluid ounces of Coca-Cola in one bottle only causes problems.

The only thing I had to do was ask

Afternoon sunbeams in the trees
Afternoon sunbeams in the trees, April 2008

So on Monday night I was up past 1am, way beyond when I should’ve been asleep. Way beyond. I’m old and really shouldn’t be pretending that I’m still in my teens. Every now and then though something magical grabs hold of me though and I’m up for all hours.

Anyways on Tuesday (yesterday) morning I’m driving to work sleepy as hell1 and I started my morning directional prayer. I always ask for guidance when I’m driving to work, that’s when I first pray.

The prayer was something humbly along the lines of…

God, me staying up way past my bedtime and feeling cranky right now is totally my fault. It’s all my doing. I wasn’t stressed, can’t blame staying up late on some childhood issue or anybody else. It’s all on me. But if ya got a little help to spare in me making it through this day without being an asshole, I’d appreciate it. Whatever your will is, please just help me accept it.

I had an email waiting for me at work that I wasn’t all too eager to deal with. I was sure something had blown up, that I was going to have to respond with some bad news to the client. After I investigated the email and related issue though, I found out that there was no issue. It was a mistaken date range on the report and that was the end of it.

The rest of my workday was pretty much stress free as well and that rarely happens. I put my headphones on, listened to my favorite #musicvideos and just did mind-numbing, uneventful work all day.

That my friends is another example of grace pure and simple. Sometimes I’m let off the hook even when I shouldn’t be, even when I put myself on that hook — the only thing I had to do was ask. That doesn’t always happen but when it does, it’s profoundly meaningful in ways I cannot describe.

So much of my spiritual beliefs are built on personal experience. After I had a handful of encounters with grace, I really started feeling it was something real.

When I was drinking it was an endless cycle of me drinking irresponsibly, screwing up, and then drinking some more.

In the here-and-now I try really hard to make it an endless cycle of me screwing up, asking for God’s help, and accepting whatever outcome comes my way. Most days I’m grateful, too.

1 I wanted to say “fuck” because that’s what you do when you’re me but I’m trying to clean up my act.

EFF on how to protect your privacy online

tcr! · Apr 4, 2017 at 10:54 pm

heres how to protect your privacy from your internet service provider

Here’s How to Protect Your Privacy From Your Internet Service Provider

We pay our monthly Internet bill to be able to access the Internet. We don’t pay it to give our Internet service provider (ISP) a chance to collect and sell our private data to make more money. This was apparently lost on congressional Republicans as they voted to strip their constituents of their privacy. Even though our elected representatives have failed us, there are technical measures we can take to protect our privacy from ISPs.

Bear in mind that these measures aren’t a replacement for the privacy rules that were repealed or would protect our privacy completely, but they will certainly help.

I’ve been using PureVPN as of late on my Mac and iPhone and so far it’s pretty good.
