  1. We convince ourselves that life will be better after we get married, have a baby, then another. Then we are frustrated that the kids aren't old enough, and we'll be more content when they are. After that, we're frustrated that we have teenagers to deal with. We will certainly be happy when they are out of that stage. We tell ourselves that our life will be complete when our partner gets his or her act together, when we get a nicer car, are able to go on a nice holiday, when we retire.The truth is, there's no better time to be happy than right now. If not now, when?Your life will always be filled with challenges.It's best to admit this to yourself and decide to be happy anyway. A quote comes from Alfred D. Souza. He said, "For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, or a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. "This perspective has helped me to see that there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way.So, treasure every moment that you have and treasure it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time...and remember that time waits for no one.So, stop waiting until you lose ten pounds, until you gain ten pounds, until you have kids, until your kids leave the house, until you start work, until you retire, until you get married, until you get divorced, until Friday night, until Sunday morning, until you get a new car or home, until your car or home is paid off, until spring, until summer, until winter, until your song comes on, until you've had a drink.... there is no better time than right now to be happy. Happiness is a journey, not a destination.Work like you don't need money,Love like you've never been hurt,And dance like no one's watching.
  2. I still miss Shannon
  3. Damn I've been away too long. Losing friend might be the reason I've been away so long... I know it was the reason I quit jumping. When we're in the game the saying is: "At least I died doing something I loved." That is such a selfish way to think. You never stop to think about the hurt, pain and damage you leave behind when you leave this world dying from something that was so easily avoided. Ok off my soap box, I miss the sky. But, it would just decimate my friends and family if I were to have an accident. I know my wife and 10 year old son would never forgive me.
  4. Here is a Dick pic for ya!
  5. I'm still alive and kicking. Quit flinging myself from airplanes in 2005. Hung around DZ.com while things were still super active. Then life happened. Had a kid in 2011 who is now 10 years old... super addicted to flight sims and wants to be a pilot. I guess the apple doesn't drop far from the tree. Good to see some names I remember. :) oldwoman6 no reason to feel like a new comer! You've got as many or more posts than me and I've been registered since 2001. You've one very well!
  6. Been through maybe 3 different formats of Dropzone.com. C'mon us OG postwhores remember the days when no one could keep up. Let alone the mods
  7. Hey girl! I'm still around. Been grounded for awhile. Got a 10yo son now and living in Georgetown TX. Have moved A LOT of the last 4 years. Glad to see some people I remember. :)
  8. Hey guys! Yea it's been awhile... took me a few weeks to get my name back. But, DZ Support was very helpful. The reason I had to come back to the old haunt was, I was talking skydiving with a client. Come to realize they were learning to jump just as I was winding down. Got me to thinking about the DZs, jumping, clouds and well this place. So I had to come see what has become of the old stomping grounds. I have to say it's a shadow of its once super busy rocking forums. But, everything changes. I'll be around, checking in once in awhile. Been thinking of getting back in the air, but then reality reminds me I haven't been up for a very long time. Not since GFDs' accident...
  9. So who is left from the early 2000s when DZ moved to this format? Just curious...

    Trolls

    Remitard, if I remember correctly you were the only MOD who ever banned me. Then while I was banned you had to deal with the ahole I called out. Yet I was still banned... weird. But anyways, I use to be a good troll "Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them."

    Wow! I had this feeling in the back of my mind Remitard was talking about me on Dizzy.com! I WAS RIGHT ! "Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them."
  12. Oh wow! I remember starting the Pub chat years ago! "Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them."
  13. Doing awesome, hope everyone is living the dream! I know I am! "Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them."
  14. I know it's not allowed, but dang it go find my ad and buy my stuff... it's all old but it's in the best condition! I promise! "Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them."
