Living large

When things are going wrong some people have the tendency to sit down and look for answers in what they are not doing.

You can't define what you should be doing by what you are not doing. That is just negative space. We are not doing it simply because there is no compelling reason to do so.

We need to look for those things that whisper quietly in our ear. The things that we wish for. There is where we will find our inspiration that will carry us through the trials and tribulations of life.

If we are not going for the things that inspire us then we are just getting by; just surviving. If we want to live large then we need to dream large and today is a good day to start.

Can you do one thing today that works towards your dream?

Our only big goal is to boat until we're very, very old. So, we take care of ourselves, eat right, exercise and take extra care of our boat. This is a small thing compared to career or life goals, but we've already done all that. We just make sure that those little things don't take away from our boating. Have a great evening Peter. :)

You are already living large Sandee :)

Comedy + said...

Well, I guess we are. I just never thought of it in those terms. We just feel comfortable. Living large works. See you this evening Peter. Have a great day. :)

We just made a decision to stay where we are for a few months longer. That is actually a step forward, seeing as moving to where we were supposed to be going would definitely be a step backwards!

That's good news Ed things can change for the better in the next few months
