Ill-Timed Update (or “But Seriously, I Didn’t Have Time for This…”)

Posted on June 10, 2015 by Slim

Oh, what’s up friends?!

It’s been some time, I suppose! As most of you know, a couple months ago we posted an update letting our fans, friends, and followers know that we would be hitting the pause button on The Next Forty Days project. While we believe so much in our fun little idea (mostly, y’know, because our lives have taken a full 180-degree turn for the better), the reality is that we’re both so tied up at the moment to give this project the attention it needs.

We also made a promise to update all of you when we had time or something to say. While I admit there’s been moments of down time when I COULD have penned a little note, I just didn’t really have anything to say. Odd, I know, for a guy that *seems* to have much to say.

Recently though, I broke a small milestone for me. I had plans to share the news this weekend. I got a message though that sidetracked those plans a bit.

I’ll be the first to admit that my sarcastic response wasn’t likely the best course of action, but it’s the best I could do without being a megadouchenozzle. Sadly, this isn’t the first of these messages I’ve received in the last couple weeks.

I figured that since I spent the time to respond, I would share in hopes to update everyone and of course avoid more emails like this. ;-)


While I wasn’t personally affected by this (I don’t actually know the sender, nor have I had any sort of interaction with him, that I can recall… so… y’know… I don’t really care… lol), I was saddened that a message like this could be sent to other people like me: someone struggling with a very serious issue that is incredibly hard to overcome. I can see how a message like this could crush someone, and it hurts my heart to think and be reminded that even when trying to do something great, there will always be others that aim to tear you down.

I can’t help but echo the close to my response below to each of you reading this: “I hope that in all things, when given the option, you would seek to choose love and perhaps focus less on paths of judgement and self-righteousness.”

Life is beautiful. Help others see that beauty instead of displaying that which is ugly.

I love you all and I thank you all in advance for excusing the spelling and grammar issues in this post!!

Peace, snugs, and MEGA love,
