What keeps me going? My girlfriend/soon to be wife, my two dogs and the possibility of having children soon, and frankly....my job.
I fucking LOVE my job. It's stressful, tiring and sometimes infuriating, but it's REALLY fun and I get a real joy out of seeing the "hamster hop on the wheel."
Not so long ago I was a pretty angry and frustrated person regarding just about everything....but I think since starting with my company I've started to really dial in and say "Ya know what? I'm almost 30, I gotta fucking man up and make this happen, otherwise I'm going to lose the best girl on the planet, I'm going to go back to the bar or into retail and I dont want to start stepping backwards when I should be moving forward."
Shit, reading through this thread......one more thing really keeps me going. If people like Kim and Grim and are dealing with conditions like theirs and THEY'RE still going? Then I should be "going" too. Call me sappy, but that's inspiration if it's anything.
