Things Happen for A Reason

Share There’s been some strange things that have happened since I arrived in San Diego a little over a month ago. And so many things, too! First, my kids and I arrived after leaving Elkhart together on March 15th around 2 p.m. It was a Monday. It had only been the prior Tuesday when I left work that day for the final time. I had a lot to do; sorting through “stuff”, pitching loads and loads of things into the

Group Dynamics

ShareI was thinking earlier today about this one. There’s over 30 of you on the “Gusto” facebook page in just two days now and 7 “followers” here on “Ramblings.” Here’s something I do often and I know this is weird but I’ll share it anyway. Here’s how it goes…. I said to myself, “Self? You’ve done a boat load of rambling, gushing, and spewing since this started. And almost ENTIRELY about you, other than the story with your daughter, don’t

Freedom

ShareOne of my friends on facebook who follows my “Gusto” page sent me a private message saying she has family members whose husbands are abusive alcoholics and that she would suggest they take a look at this site. She also mentioned she was sure it wasn’t the only thing to be discussed among us and she’s absolutely right. That’s my hope and intent as well, very much so. That’s why I’m encouraging you to share of yourselves. Having said that

Expectations & Serenity

Share One of the best things anyone should remember is that your serenity is inversely proportional to your expectations. The higher your expectations of other people are, chances are that your serenity will be lower. You can watch your serenity rise when you discard your expectations. But then “rights” try to move in, and they too can force your serenity level down. You have to discard your “rights”, as well as your expectations, by asking yourself, How important is it,

Acceptance is The Answer

Acceptance is The Answer

ShareThis is what I do. This is what I mean by “ramblings”. It’s 4:30 a.m. PDT and I’ve just had a dream. I awaken and something “happens.” A word, a phrase, an event, something that triggers me to pull my sorry ass out of bed even though I know my body and mind needs more rest. But I don’t. I get up. And here I am. Recently, my daughter got into trouble back home in Tribune over a weekend when

“That Date”

ShareBlog. What the hell is that anyway? Big Load of Gossip? I’ve been thinking about that one since I created this bad boy on April 9th. “Googled it” in fact. There’s one. Google it. Ever notice how, sometimes when someone asks you a question in this day and age of the internet you don’t know the answer? What do you say? Easy. GOOGLE IT! LMAO! Funny thing is, or frightening when you think about it, you can google just about

The beginning

ShareFirst, let’s clear up this “gusto” thing. Many of my facebook friends call me that.For whatever reason, one day someone called me Gusto on facebook and people took off with it. Oddly enough, they don’t know the real story behind it. When I was a young boy growing up on a poor Western Kansas farm my Dad called me that from time to time. I’m not sure when he started to or why but it stuck. Today, at age 51,
