Heart Center, where I was diagnosed in two visits with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy with a large obstruction on the septum of my heart, a genetic condition. Unusually, I have clear arteries or zero plaque. I delayed the surgery because I was afraid? Now I can walk three miles per day if I wish. You cannot imagine how grateful I am. Heart Center is so smart and caring. And while I was running, I was doing all kinds of other destructive things to my life. I started smoking and drinking, and I was partying all the time. I was running around with women even though I had an on-again, off-again girlfriend I'd met when I was with the Colts. I didn't care about life.

I was living reckless. I was doing anything and everything to fill me up inside, because I was feeling awfully empty in there. Living reckless meant that I didn't have to face up to what was really happening. And I thought I could keep this going indefinitely. Then I got a woman who wasn't my girlfriend pregnant. I wasn't ready in any way to have a kid, and I made this very, very clear. You'll make smart decisions.

I am grateful for him and other physicians on my health team Now we have a pandemic. Dear Lord, what's next! Well, let's make another list--a warm home, food, clothing, water, lots of articles and music, a sweet cat, great neighbors, loving friends, intelligence, and a wacky sense of humor? My life's rule is, Don't hurt any human being, any animal, or the earth. care, forgive, love, and laugh. Experience joy because it's all around you. Be patient, and don't let fear in. We can get through this together, giving each other courage and hope. Maybe I will write that article I've been planning since 1970 (a calendar entry). Maria made it equally clear that she was keeping the baby, which freaked me out. Meanwhile, I had to tell my girlfriend (we were on again, sort of) that I'd gotten another woman pregnant. You can imagine how that went. Complicating the fact was that my mother and my girlfriend's mother were close friends, and this had created a huge amount of friction between them.

I was a jerk at the time because I didn't want to be a man, but I was blaming everyone else. I just wanted to keep running. And then I couldn't run any longer. I got a call telling me that my college roommate, Anthony Arline, had committed suicide. He had made the Chargers but then had to leave for personal reasons, and the loss of his football dreams had a big effect on him, ultimately causing him to take his own life. I was devastated, because Anthony was one of my closest friends. Robbins describes the fire walk as a symbolic experience that proves if you can make it through the fire, you can make it through anything. In fact, it doesn't. Fire-walking is a one-off event.

No wonder why most women would rather date a man who has good personality even if the guy is not good looking or he does not have a car. It's true to say that many younger men, on reaching the age in their lives when pubescence has taken control of their lateral thinking, find themselves fantasising about older females, often twice their own age and upwards.

For example, it's quite common for a young man, still at school age, testosterone flying everywhere, to have the 'hots' for one or more of his female teachers, a neighbour's wife or even a pal's mother. The consensus of opinion reached by many is that the attraction by a young male to a more mature woman is based on the fact that not only does she have experience. Although there are exceptions to the rule, in the majority of cases, his secret lusting remains just that, and goes unnoticed by the older female who still regards him as a young student or friend of her son. However, as the young male grows older, and gains his own level of experience, so his desire for the maturer female wanes, and on reaching middle age, he will frequently have his head 'turned' by a much younger woman. All this is in stark contrast to the attraction patterns noted in the life of the female of the species. Whereas the young girl, on first becoming sexually aware, will hone her intimacy skills on the younger male, yet she will often be less interested in him as she gets older, turning her attention to the more mature men that cross her path.

Knowing I'm not in the best of shape, I was confident that this type of activity, deep in the heart of the forest, would be beneficial to my body, mind, and soul. I started at a slow, easy pace, taking the time to look up and admire the different shades of green radiating from the trees, the lake's deep blue water, and the pale blue cloudless sky. I inhaled deeply, grateful for the moment, taking in all the beauty. And I was even more devastated because I hadn't been paying enough attention to see what he was going through. Maybe if I had, I could have convinced him to keep going. Maybe I could have helped him see a way out. That was rock bottom for me.
