June 2, 2014 If Not For An Escapist TV Show….


I started this blog to help me put more positive back in my life.  I thought that if I could recognize a great moment every day, then that moment would dwarf the other crappy moments of the day.  So far this experiment has been a pretty good success.  I knew that there would be some tough days, but I was hoping the perfect moment would help me get past those.

Today has been one of those days.  It hasn’t been a miserable day, but it hasn’t cracked the top one hundred of this year either.  I was pretty sure that I wouldn’t be able to write anything for today’s perfect moment.  Thankfully Jack Bauer saved my blog.

While I shouldn’t rely on television as part of my perfect moment, it was in fact what the doctor ordered.  Rather than stress and let the days events get me down, I decided just to relax and immerse myself in the world of 24.  I let Jack Bauer, super intense agent and 24 give me the escape I needed to wash the crap of the day away.  Most people wouldn’t call this a perfect moment, but since I feel much better than I did when I got home from work, it seems perfect to me.
