I’m gonna be an award winning animator and body builder (not a competitive one) .
- finish the script and storyboard
- rehab my ankle
- get back to being able to bench press 3 sets at 50 pounds
- lose an inch around my waist
These are things under my control. In this way, one fights entropy.
I was starting think and feel that I was old and broken.
I am neither.
I guess that at the time I was probably by the standards of beauty, actually beautiful – that whole 32-24-32 youthful thing, was when I was in my teens through early twenties. But I was absolutely certain of my ugliness at the time. Confidence is not the domain of the young. Perhaps, it isn’t really the domain of any age, but I am more certain of who I am now. And most days I feel I look alright, and I dress to please myself.
Perhaps beauty and strength is a state of mind rather than an objective reality.
