Re: What's your philosophy on life? What's most important?
Well, My favorite uncle, my God Father, was having difficulties battling his cancer and as of a few hours ago died at his house with my family at his side.
The struggle of just the simple things such as moving from his lazy boy to his bed was extremely painful to eventually my helping to get him to or from.
Now that he's past and I helped load him from his lazy boy to the carriage to the final stages it is very humbling to say the least.
Now, calling off all plans on this Saturday night I'm just reflecting on life.
It's tough as hell and with the normal everyday hustle and bustle of life but then, out of nowhere, something complicates it.
Watching my great grandparents go, then my grandparents except 1 grandmother, a few uncles, etc it can create a bit of mayhem in the mind.
Life is short, I'm technically next in line, have been thinking have I obtained and achieved all that I desire?
So as I sit alone with a few beers away from people by myself on the beach just thinking about life.
Just out of curiosity whats your outlook on life?
What drives you?
Where in life expectancy are you? 25%? 50% 75%?
How has your mission in life changed?

Well I lost another family member end of march. My aunt was like my mother and helped raise me. Seeing her go at 57 was an eye opener. But then again every year a family member dies. Bad luck? My sister of 27 died in 05 and grandpa in
06 and all the rest after that.My only blood relatives is my real mother and one disabled aunt that I care for so my motivation is work which is hard as I'm flying abroad but money has tempted me into living my life like this so that I can support my aunt and family financially. And now that the wifey is pregnant I have to work extra hard to feed the extra mouth but I'm never home so it sucks but I consider myself lucky as many would kill for my job. So in a nutshell my family drives me to being a better aviator and to keep my job or else the whole house comes tumbling down. Actually a lot of pressure when so many are counting on me.
I think I'm at 1/4 way through life as I have my health under control. Flying is all I think about and talk about as its my passion. It's all I want to do.However, when someone relies on your hard worked money it takes some convincing especially for me to work my ass off as many count on me but what am I gaining financially? Well nothing , however my family makes it all worth it when I take care of things and they can work without the thought of their paycheck being hammered to handle my aunts estate and care money for my aunt. It's a heavy load but then again there is always someone is a worse situation
