What’s Been Cool in Your Life?

People like to much to focus on the negative; what chances they didn’t take, jobs they didn’t get, friends they’ve lost, mistakes they’ve made. How about we all try and experiment by seeing how we feel after remember all the cool stuff instead? Here are some examples from my life (and I forgot to mention a lot in the video, I’m sure… like riding a zip line, for example):

  • I’ve traveled to Mexico, Grand Cayman, Jamaica, Bahamas, Colombia, England, and Canada (if Canada counts)
  • I’ve Driven Route 66, all of it, several times
  • I built a hotrod Mustang
  • I have owned two convertibles
  • I recorded three CDs (the first one sucks and the third isn’t in print anymore)
  • I got a college degree from University of Iowa
  • I’ve built several computers, and have REbuilt several MacBooks
  • I’ve camped in Death Valley heat and below freezing winters
  • I once dated a girl who was a former prom and homecoming queen… what a bitch
  • I’ve seen several brain surgeries
  • I’ve watched four babies’ births, including my two daughters
  • I’ve driven a NASCAR style race car (at a driving school)
  • I rode in a sailplane
  • I actually flew a Cessna
  • I’ve run a marathon
  • I’ve done several 100 mile bike rides
  • I’ve ridden a bike to the top of three different mountains
  • I can sail
  • I taught myself HTML, PHP, Javascript, and other web code stuff
  • I toured California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Kansas, Missouri, and Illinois as a singer songwriter
  • Aprendí español
  • I’ve ridden a bike through 20 miles of Bogotá
  • I’ve met Sammy Hagar, Maya Angelou, Julia Child, Dikembe Mutombo, The Tubes, and I saw John Cleese at a restaurant in Santa Barbara but didn’t want to be a pest, so I let the guy eat his lunch without my babbling about how great “A Fish Called Wanda” was
