    Indiana Jones And The Crystal Skull

    Around 10:00 tonight, my youngest son asked me to watch Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull with him. Over the years, I have always been so absorbed with work or pleasing my wife that I would not have done this. With my change, I took the time to watch it. I didn't work on my...

    Having Fun

    So, I am taking a week off from work. It has been great so far. I have been relaxing, reading, and working on some writing. I am not pressuring myself to get anything done. Usually, I would psyche myself up when I took time off. I worked like a mad man to get everything done...

    Losing The Type A

    A few years back, I was really forced to examine my life. I was in my late 30's and began suffering from anxiety attacks and chest pains. I am not one to go to a doctor unless I am dying, so I really took a look at my life. I had a family, but I was lonely. I worked my *** off...

    The Root Of The Problem

    I have been reviewing and analyzing my life enough to uncover the root of my driving personality. I understand that I have made good and faithful efforts to be a good husband, provider, father, and child to my parents. But, the people in my lives have caused me enormous...

    Recovery

    I have been researching the Type A subject in my free time. It is really scary seeing all of the damage stress can do to your heart, brain, and your general health. I am feeling a great deal of regret over my life choices. I see that most type A become that way in reaction to...

    Feeling So Much Better

    Well, I have been exercising regularly, sleeping a bit more, and finding time to relax. I have found that I am actually a better listener now. I enjoy myself when I am doing nothing. My outlook on life is much better. I always had a constant fear that everything would fall...

    Hurriedness

    One of the aspects that is so hard to shake in being a type A personality is being hurried. It is an internal "hurry" in which one doesn't allow oneself to sit back and enjoy the finer things in life. I notice when I shoot basketball with my son, I keep having a feeling that...

    Strife

    Since I am the only member of this group, I will just make a new story every so often. I guess type A's have trouble admitting that they have a problem, like most people. I know from my reading of the Bible that Jesus covers the subject of strife. I think type A personalities...
