The Next Best Thing

The greatest thing about life is that there always seems to be something coming up for each one of us that gets us excited! It's that one thing that immediately puts a smile on your face and makes you forget about dragging your ass to work at 6am after a less than glamorous night of sleep. Maybe it's that vacation to paradise or a trip to the ballpark with all your close buddies or a surprise party you're about to throw for a friend. Either way, life for a moment is blissful :)

I happen to have two items of sinful exhilaration that get my juices flowing. The first of course is every man's weakness - NFL Fantasy Football! Ooooooohhhhhh yeaaaaaahhhhhh!! Another season begins in just over a month and I can't help but want to jump out of my skin when I think about the upcoming Sunday afternoons. I have a feeling The Wedgie Mafia (that's my team) is gonna have a special recipe for delivering a second championship trophy this year to it's mantle of fame.

For those of you who could care less about football ***don't think I didn't see you want to click off of this web page and onto another more exciting porn site or something*** I'll tell you a little about my second item of interest. That item is quickly becoming the volunteer work that I'm doing through Hands On Tampa Bay.

I've gone to about a half a dozen events so far all over the Tampa Bay area. I can honestly say that I've never felt better in my entire life for participating in something that goes well beyond myself and into the lives of those around me. I've done everything from cleaning up the grounds of a local museum to working in the kitchen of a homeless shelter to preparing individual meals for those who are shut ins. I've tried to make it a point to average at least one event per week and more if my schedule permits. And not only do I get to make someone else's day by my good deeds but I've also had the pleasure of working right alongside some incredibly dedicated and giving individuals that prove to me there's so many positive things happening in this world of pessimistic media.

Now that you're day dreaming of the next best thing in your life I hope I've brought a smile to your face by sharing my latest experiences. Remember there's nothing more rewarding in life than making a positive impact on somebody else :) And of course winning your fantasy football league!
