I Love To Do More Than One Thing!!

Published on 3/14/2013
For additional information  Click Here

That probably got your attention and wonder what I am talking about.  I love to do more than one thing in life but can't get to them all.

What I mean is my love for my family and my love for network marketing. I can actually say I have many more loves. I do have alot to do and I never believe I will get it all done.

I sometimes have to walk away from the computer shut it down and forget about the internet for awhile to get something important done.

I have noticed that my hobbies are getting scarce. I had many and when I had children they were just about gone. One love I have has not gone away because it is actually a part of my entire family. Gaming. Yes I am a Gamer and a long time one too.

Lots of people think gaming is bad and a waste of time. Now a days it has become more than what people think it is.

I believe I may go in another direction here. I sometimes start to write about one thing and then come up with with another idea. I just like to write what comes from my mind at the time. Just like not knowing what to do next in life I am always thinking of things to write about. I often see something and say now that would make a great blog but I never get to write about it. Rarely ever.

But I will say that I enjoy writing when I can. It helps me feel a little better. When it comes to things in my life that are unfinished I call them open chapters that need to be closed. Everytime I complete a task in life thats a chapter closed. You have no idea what that does to me to see all those open chapters in front of me.

When it all starts to overwhelm me I just say it is time for a Game. I will sit for a couple hours and enjoy a game alone or with other people in the world. It is a social outlet and no one there really judges you. We are all there for the same reason. To have a good time. But occasionally you will get a really mean player who hates their life and wants to take it out on others.

I hope this blog is making some sense. You might start to see the open chapters that I have. Just from reading this.

Seriously though I raise a child with Autism and one without. And yes they are both very challenging. I often wonder while I am on here writing a blog am I not doing right by my kids. Shouldn't I be spending time with them instead.

But then I think when I make it one day I will not be so stressed and my time can be more evenly distributed. I want to help my sons more. I want to make sure my boy with Autism is living a comfortable life. I want to make sure that his brother never has to worry about a thing in life so he can better take care of his brother when we are gone. I also want to build a strong relationship with them both and show them how important family is.

I also want to teach my boy with Autism how to live a normal life but then that is hard on both of us so we do it just one step at a time. But I feel frustrated that time for him may be running out. Not die or anything like that but I mean how will he learn to live in society. How will he let people know what he needs help with. Will he ever stop getting frustrated and not whack a stranger that don't understand him. Will he ever learn to eat the right foods. Will he ever learn to wipe himself. He is 12.

What I will usually do when I get so frustrated is go play a game. It helps to calm me and puts me in a whole new world. I know I am doing all I can and I am always downing myself for believing I am not doing enough. So I remove myself from this world.

I do socialize with others and on Xbox Live I have the maximum friends allowed. I talk to some of them when I am playing and other times I like to be all by myself and get into what I am playing just like I was there. You can really lose yourself in a game.

XBox 360 has become more than just gaming. It is now an entire entertainment and workout system. It is also a social network. It was around before FaceBook. Xbox has become very popular and with kids it's a no brainer. Almost every kid loves video games but the argument in the world today is should they play them.

I have always been a gamer since the video system PONG with just a ball and two little lines on each side of the screen. It was table tennis basically. Then onto Atari. Not to mention the mall arcade and the pinball machines. PacMan ,Qbert, Tron and Tetris just to name a few. But when I finally got to play those games at home it was heaven. 

Video games have progressed through time and systems were introduced that made your game play so real. I have over 2000 Xbox games alone not to mention all the other old systems laying in my pile of junk. Atari, Nintendo, Genisis, Playstation, WII. XBOX WINS.

You can play a game and get a workout cause they have games that just don't make you sit on the couch. I find this great for the whole family. It gets us all up and moving. We have had Kinect for XBox for about 4 years now and although I am not as skinny as I should be I am sure it has helped my figure quite a bit. You are having so much fun playing you have no idea you are even exercising.  

Lately my Autistic boy has taken an interest even though we had bought almost every game that he could Kinect with. The funny thing is he is playing a game now that was free on Xbox. It's called Kinect Party and there is not much to it to play but it is getting him aware of what is going on and he interacts with it. He can see himself in every game mode on the screen doing what he should on it. It is incredible to watch. He has even taken an interest in Racing Games. He even sits and watches me play poker.

You have no idea how fun it really is unless you are a gamer. As to whether I believe a child should play games. I would say yes. For me it's simple. You teach your child what is real and what is not and reinforce the rules of online gaming. Keep an eye on what they are doing and they will grow up responsible when it comes to gaming.

I have been lucky that I have a child that is interested in gaming and don't care if he runs the streets. People say it is not good because he is not socializing. I say he is. He talks to up to 16 people at a time while he is playing if he chooses to. He is not running the streets and in any kind of danger. I know where he is at all times and he is having fun and learning lots. His hand eye cordination is incredible and he can solve puzzles and problems. I just wish they had a few more educational games like Halo the Math Edition. LOL. But only time will tell if they will ever do something like that.

I have wrote quite alot would say my main love here sounds like the XBOX. Although I don't get to play it like I used to. We were so into it we had even opened an XBOX center where you could come game with your friends after school and have your Birthday Party there too. It was a hit but unfortunate for us the bad economy hit and kids stopped coming cause a loaf of bread on the table was more important than your kid playing games with their friends. So we had to close which was very sad and the debt we have left is just incredible.

But I just push forward and take THRIVE daily. It really helps to ease the worry of all that's in front of me. It also helps with the aches and pains that depression puts on your body. It really helps me carry on with my day. It's the miracle pill of the century. It does everything for you except maybe wipe your but. LOL. Sorry thought it was funny. If you haven't ever heard of Thrive then click on my link at the top of this blog and see what I mean. I decided that I liked THRIVE so much I wanted to share it with others.

Weight Management•Cognitive Performance•Joint Support•Pain Management•Anti-Aging & Antioxidant Blend•Lean Muscle Support•Digestive & Immune Support.

That is what Thrive does for me not to mention making me money. I love it too just like my Family, Network Marketing and my XBOX 360.

Well I think I will wrap it up here. Wrote a lot but I had fun. Look forward to your comments and hope to see some of you will take the 8 weeks THRIVE experience.
