Nothing in moderation


95 degrees and humid!

When I do something, I go all out or I don’t do it all. That’s the story of my life. When I decide to do something, anything, I go all out and dedicate all my energy to doing it, whatever “it” is. I do everything in excess. And I only do nothing in moderation. Wait, now that I think of it, I do nothing in excess, too. I can fully indulge in doing nothing for hours, days, nay, months at a time. Moderation is only an entry in the dictionary to me. If I do so something, I must do it in excess. When I trained to run a marathon, I ended up running thirteen. If something is worth doing in moderation, it’s even more fun to do it in excess. I think Nietsche was on to something when he said, “What does not destroy me, makes me stronger.”
