Just Keep Going

I’m looking at bettering myself professionally. I’ve been trying to put in a few applications in to a few paces and see where it takes me. After all, I didn’t get that promotion at work, and it might just have been a way of saying that I should put in and see where life wants to take me. This is something that takes precedence with my motivation as of late.

It’s not that I dislike my job, it’s just I need to make some moves that can get me more money than I’m getting right now. Yes, there are things that I don’t agree with, but there are more pluses about this job than not. It’s been something that I had to figure out, but I do enjoy the interaction at work. There’s just things that make it all frustrating, and I’m trying to address those things.

I have a hurdle to overcome and I feel that it’s something that’s been holding me back in many aspects of my life. Wanna know what it is? I think that it’s marketing; plain and simple. I know that resume’s are supposed to be a way to market yourself unto employers. Let’s face facts, I think I could learn a thing of two about marketing my brands.

I think that with confidence, I’m better at talking doubt my brands because I can sell the passion that I have. Being told that I’m “an inspiration” by people might be the way I have to market myself. My charisma has always been something that I knew I would have to have, because my looks were always considered “undesirable” by the one’s I was attracted too.

Maybe my own condense and low-self-esteem is what has prevented me from being better at marketing myself? I think that I need to take the time to contemplate it, because I’m not the same person that I was. I feel better, and I’m more motivated to do things, even when things seem to be piling on. That’s life, and it doesn’t bother me as much as would be thought. At the same time, I’ve gotten better at reacting to the circumstances surrounding the various situations.

So, I want to ask the reader a few questions: let’s start with this, what would you like to see from me? I’ve gotten into designing shirts, and stickers, plus a few other items, but I’m sure there is something people would like to see, what is it that you would like to see the CK Project, offer?

Even better, for those who do read on Facebook, Tumblr, what is it that you think I should offer? What do you see are my strengths? Part of the reason I ask, is because I want to get more interaction from my readers. I want to start a conversation, and not just have people lurking. I want this to feel like something that starts a conversation and keeps going. I believe in you.

That goes for being humbled by the people I see in my life. I get many people saying that they keep up with my stuff, even if they don’t comment, and they are inspired and excited to see the progress, but I want this to be a discussion. How do we better ourselves? What kinds of things would be of great benefit for me to talk about?  How can I get you to join in the conversation?

I think this would help me better market myself, and improve the things that I’m already doing.  Here is my new merchandise store: https://teespring.com/stores/the-ck-project

This is the latest podcast on Bullying: https://anchor.fm/CkProject/episodes/Bullying-Ep–1-e4tkig/a-abgq9b.

I think that’s about it for this blog. This is the director and that’s a wrap.

 

Eleven Months, You’ve Been Good

My check- up was yesterday, and it was nice to see another pound gone since Tuesday. I’m glad that things are no longer stagnate with my weight. It really gives me the motivation to keep pushing myself to get better.

One of the things I’ve done is get ten thousand or more steps in everyday for the last six days. I’m shooting for making this day seven, and hopefully day eight tomorrow. There are times that I don’t always get them in but then, I do need to have a break.

More and more confidence comes my way as I get closer to the goals I’ve set for myself. I’m even looking at nicer clothes to wear. Sarah says that she likes seeing this new side of me. The weight goes down and the confidence just pours in. That’s one of the perks that I’ve gotten to enjoy in the last year.

So my weight is currently at 290.3, and the last time I saw this was in the year 2000. It blows my mind that I’m in better condition than I have been most of my adult life. That’s legally an adult now, crazy. With 139.6 down, I’m feeling that getting another 10.4 pounds will be gone be the new year.

The rest of this month is going to keep me fairly busy. At least one day during the weekend, we’ve got something going on, next weekend will be our Society of Creative Anachronism’s local event Frost Dragon. I’m excited because I get to share this hobby with a friend who’s never been, and I hope that she finds a passion in it, as I’ve had, hopefully even more so. I’ve also heard that a couple of other friends who I don’t normally see except at out of town events might be showing up. That’s even more exciting because they are geeky individuals as well.

The weekend after is going to a mini-comic book convention, so that’s going to be fun. Especially since I’ve got a geek media that I’m working on getting off the ground. So much is put into getting things really going so that I can enjoy my passions, and make some money to support the family. It also helps that they show the same kind of passion.

The weekend after is Thanksgiving weekend. I’m going to enjoy a four-day weekend, as the plan for Black Friday is going to the theater to see Creed II(2018). It’s exciting that I get to sit and watch it with my son. When he said he was into boxing, I thought why not share my love of the boxing movies of the Rocky series. He really got into it, and when we were watching those movies, it was giving me the chance to watch Creed(2015).  One of the problems being a movie connoisseur is that I don’t always get the time to watch everything that I have, and it takes quite a bit of time to get through when I can.

We’re in the works for filming the documentary based on my weight loss journey soon. The biggest part is getting something that call B-roll footage, I’ve got to borrow some photos from my parents to add to the film, so it’ll both be amazing and a crazy trip through time as I gather those things together. The biggest thing I hope that this documentary helps inspire more people than this blog, and the various social medias already have. Helping other’s is what I think my purpose in life is. I enjoy it, and it inspires my children to do greater things too.

I have a second blog on Tumblr, follow me there as I get out more content and pictures on my adventures for my weight loss journey, and I also share posts about exercises and other types of content besides what goes on this blog. I’m going to get that blog to show more than just weight loss and mental health. https://www.tumblr.com/blog/ckproject.
