Letting Yourself Down and Overcoming Failure to Find Redemption

I failed. My goal of posting every day in August went to shit over the weekend. We had friends down to the ranch, and…yeah, shit happens. I wasn’t too drunk, the time just seemed to get away from me. I looked at one point Saturday night and it was…already Sunday morning. Oops. Shit. Fuck. Whatever. I’m doing this for myself, so the only person that I really failed was…myself. Committing to posting every day wasn’t something that I really planned to do. It just…started happening. I didn’t want to say anything about it at first because I was afraid I’d jinx myself. Turns out…I did.

So now I have the chance for redemption. Maybe it’s just in my head, and I’m the only one who cares…but it’s still a feeling. Back in the glory days when we used to play beer pong and had the attention span to actually finish a game, redemption was something you never wanted to be doing but the amazing comebacks seemed to happen with regularity. The feeling of being in that moment and absolutely fucking catching fire was…amazing. Maybe that’s where I’m headed with the daily posts here. Probably not, but it would be fun!

I’ve got tons more photos to share and hopefully I don’t run out of things to say…it’s just random bullshit so far but maybe we’ll find a theme at some point. By the end of the year I’ll bring back some version of the Friday Standdown (it’ll be on LandmanLife this time), start the YouTube channel, and sell $100,000 worth of swag. At least one of those things is going to happen. Honestly, with the LandmanLife store…I don’t think I’m going to bring back any of the old products. They had a time and a place, I hope anybody that supported us by buying swag is still enjoying it. We’ll start working on some limited production runs each year so that I can offer some really high quality items without worrying about having tons of inventory. Let me know in the comments what you’d like to see along those lines in the future!
