Well, congratulations everyone! We managed to survive the apocalypse, most of us anyway. Cockroaches are still here but, the twinkies didn’t make it…
So, new year new website. This is just a base model. I really haven’t found the time to work on it much yet, but I wanted to go ahead and change over now to hopefully encourage myself to keep working on it. It’s not like I don’t have the time, I’m just really that lazy
Honestly, I feel this past year has been one extreemly long vacation. I still get up and go to work everyday, but work is easy and stress free, and I come home to enjoy myself like never before. It honestly feels like I’m living on auto-pilot and this entire year is just a blur of sunsets and inaction. Maybe I needed the break? maybe I’m failing my duties as a human? Not really sure on that one….
I’ve learned a lot this year, more than I can ever say here. It’s really been an incredible time to be alive and I’m extremely grateful for everything. Fortunately, this laziness translated itself into countless hours of contemplation and education. Observing the world from new perspectives and finding more of myself in it. But alas, all that is lost without action. So for this new year, I’m all about ACTION!
I’m finally working on the boat again. You know, all that work I never got to last year… Yeah, that stuff. I decided to rent a storage unit and empty the boat completely. Nothing but some food and a backpack of clothes for a while until I get these projects finished. This has been the best decision I’ve made so far. It’s like a fresh start and gives me the same feeling I had when I first bought the boat. A clean slate to work with… Of course, it wouldn’t be necessary if I was organized enough to begin with, but I wasn’t. So here we are, lessons learned.
Anyway, just a quick update. I know I haven’t had much to say lately, but I haven’t given up on anything. Some things just take time. I’m still unsure whether to take the money and run after tax season, or put the money into the boat and save up the rest of the year. I know I semi-committed to finishing the boat here, and that still makes the most sense. But, there’s always that tug in the back of my mind that drives me to leave as soon as possible. Obviously it’s not a very strong tug or I would have been gone already. But, it’s enough to consistently give me pause and reconsider my goals every so often. I think that’s pretty healthy as long as I’m actually working towards things. It’s when I become sedentary that those urges become a problem. I know when I’m not working on the boat, I’m not accomplishing any goal. Getting this work done is the key to the future for me. And so it shall be!
Here’s to a New year. New Love, New Hope, New Goals.
Every day is a new day.
