Being content is a very good thing. (mobile post)


I’m sitting here in sun enjoying a cold beer after work. I’m clean, for a roughneck. I’m tired, but relaxed. I worked all night and can see the rig from the chair I’m in. I look around at the blue sky, rolling hills and take it all in. And you know what? I’m pretty damn fucking content. Why do people always act like thats a bad thing? Why do we search for excitement in life when we usually find drama. God has blessed me with a great job that I love and that pays my bills. I have a great wife and wonderful kids. And the rest of my family isn’t half bad either. 🙂 I think so often we focus on what we think we should have or the life we think we should lead even though those things are not all that great. Crap ideas put on us by society. I dont think i’m settling. Rather I put forth to you that realizing. Realizing all the wonderful things I do have and it makes me very happy. It makes me very content. What do you see when you look at your life? Hope your view is as good as mine.

The things we do in life (mobile)


I love my job. I’m a derrickhand on a drilling rig. I love my family. I have a wonderful wife who treats me great. Three awesome kids who make me very proud. I’ve always found it easy to leave for work. Not because I want to leave. But because i accept it. I suppose it helps that I really love my job. It makes me happy. I get to come to work, swing sledge hammers, yell, and in general be a guy. That I get to go home and be all domesticated. I miss my wife. I miss my kids. But at the same time when home I miss my job too. So what I want to know is what about everyone else? Am I abnormal or just more accepting of what life demands? Third party, roughneck, whatever.
