Regular life, great expectations. Stormy days… help!


 Getting up at 5:00a.m. going to coach the Guelph Marlins Masters swimming program on Mondays, Saturdays and Sundays, trying to swim the other days of the week, picking up Santiago (my son) cooking breakfast, driving him to school, doing some regular life /people house chores, maybe a little free lance job or helping somebody with something (there is always something extra to do no matter what) lately going to Waterloo for a chiropractic visit to fix an injure I got on my right calf, traveling 104 Km. to Toronto and another 104 on the way back Monday to Friday to my regular official full tme job at the Toronto Star Newspaper, coming back to Guelph at night to feed the dog and cat, spend some quality (short) time talking to my family in Mexico, friends here and there before finally at the end of the day I fall asleep after 19 hours days.

That has been my regular daily life for the last few months and my feeling is that there is no time to do all that it is there that I want to do or it is exciting to me. 

It is overwhelming at this point in time.

Very well I know that I am not the only one with this feeling out there and I also know very well that there is no one that is going to change anything of this other than myself.

Have you ever felt like there is a thousand worthy things waiting for you to take on and you just do not seem to find a way to start them?

I would love to hear about it.

Anyway, in an excercise of recalling those things I have done in the last 8 months or so that I meant to write about and never got to it because… (whatever, I am not going to repeat all of the above again). I am making a list of things that has happened that I should write about:

ParaPan American Games Guadalajara 2011. From the other side.

"La casa de los Niños" Learning to swim, the unexpected experience.

Recount of last year's failures that are shaping the future success.

The Big River Man Martin Strel in Guelph

Back to the open water

Swimming long. In fact really really long. The new goal.

Please stay tunned and ask questions! That makes me be on top of this and focus on what really matters.
