Life After Release-8

Big Springs Park

I love a walk in the Park! My life after release has not been one. That hasn’t deterred me from continuing to pursue a better life. I’ll clarify.

The World refuses to work According to Wayne’s plans but I continue to feel Blessed by the Best and to maintain an Attitude of Gratitude.

Relationships

Last week I thought I found a woman I wished to have a serious relationship with, even though she was about twice the age of the woman I imagined when writing this:

“Before my release, I joked with my peers that I was going to get a fat butt girl with a pecan tan and a Mercedes Benz, but maybe I need to revise that, because thatโ€™s being too picky. What I would like is that special lady who loves me the way I will love her and then perhaps I will perceive my life as great.” Year One of New Life by Wayne T. Dowdy | STRAIGHT FROM THE PEN

Well, me and a Fat Butt Girl with a Pecan Tan and a Mercedes Benz had a date planned last week. It only took three times for her to prove that words flowing from her lips were unreliable for me to let her know our relationship would not be going further. Darn it!

Life Goes On and I am okay with the life I have, though not how I imagined it would be by this time. I am fortunate to be alive and in as good of health as I am to complain about anything that happens in relationships. When and if the time comes for me to be in a serious (or a not-so-serious) relationship with a woman, it will happen and my being more celibate than some priest will end as another junction in life begins.

I am okay either way: A fighter and survivor I am!

Finances

My investment plans went great for a few months but then just as for thousands of others, my account values over recent months have essentially gone downhill; however, I am still in the Green in most areas and am grateful to not have been as impacted by the stock market corrections as severely as thousands of investors and traders.

In the rapid changing and volatile Crypto market, devastating is one word to describe activities over the last few weeks, with over 500 billion lost within a couple of day by people and institutions. Fortunate for me, I didn’t have that much to lose and maintained most of my balance, and since the massive decline in Bitcoin value, some losses have been recovered.

To let people know about some of the things I do as a successfully-reintegrated individual, I wrote about the Trading Apps I Use. Last weekend, over the three previous days I had lost between $450-600.00 in Crypto-Trading, a small sum in comparison to typical traders. By Monday at Noon, I recouped the losses. That’s Crypto, up and down, with some swings as drastic as 25-75%.

This weekend I went to a birthday party and swam in a pool alone after the children went back inside with the adults. It was nice having the privilege to get some sun and enjoy being alive and well after all these years.

In the meantime, I will continue to do my normal things to avoid becoming a recidivist, going to Twelve Step meetings to share my experience, strength and hope, remembering where I came from and where I can return if I decide to return to old behaviors.

Though overworked and underpaid by my employer; I remain grateful for my job because it helps to keep me healthy and provides an opportunity for me to meet a lot of lovely ladies I would not otherwise see. One of whom may just be my next wife, whether she drives a Mercedes or not. ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Easter from Wayne T. Dowdy

Happy Easter to those who celebrate!

What surprised me was to learn that the Stock Market is closed on Good Friday every year, since Easter is a large marketing opportunity for retailers.

Thousands of Easter Sales are going on as I type, which will now turn to After-Easter Sales to attract more customers looking to save on left-over products on the shelves. Sale prices will continue with many companies after Easter passes over.

One business I promote is Rexing that now has a sale on several great items relating to dash cams and other visual monitoring devices. Visit WonderfulThingsDone for a promotion I wrote as a Rexing Affiliate.

In reference to affiliate marketing, my most popular blog on this website is PriceWaiter Affiliate in which I wrote about another company I promote, PriceWaiter. That blog blessed me with several new followers and the most likes ever for any single blog post. I am grateful for each!

As for Easter, I commented to a customer at Goodwill about Good Friday celebrating the execution of Jesus Christ, and it not seeming to be so good to me for Him to have been killed. Of course she explained that it is celebrated because Jesus died on the cross for our sins. Now that is one thing, but I still cannot figure out what little chickens and rabbits have to do with Easter?

Beside that, I don’t know of any rabbits that lay eggs either but Easter Eggs and milk chocolate rabbits have been around for decades, long before the stock market began trading for profits. I am hoping to find After-Easter Sale Prices on Stocks. ๐Ÿ™‚
