I have not been posting lately because I have been busy exploring different options in life. Every so often I find it necessary to take a break from any regular routine I have developed and to try out different thought processes and really meditate on how I should live my life.
If there is one thing I have learned over my life it is to fully embrace change and to fully embrace new experiences. I also love to continue on with what I have already learned in my earlier years.
My wife is opening up a new business and I volunteered to do all of the construction and that type of work needed to get it open. I have been painting, building the new counter, installing the new sinks, and just fixing everything which needs to be fixed. I love this type of work! The funniest moment was when I had to haul four very large pieces of wood on the top of my little Fiat 500! Oh the looks I got from the people in town. I call it my little work truck. I love this car! I had to park next to the other work trucks.
Once this business is open I have a plan of making several little adventures with this car. I will be traveling to the beach and back to the desert a lot this summer as I am helping friends remodel their new home, so why not document some of these adventures?
My goal is to help people when I can, motivate them when I can, stay motivated for my own projects and to just enjoy everything I can possibly enjoy. I saw a very interesting video recently and one thing said in it really stuck with me. Life is short when you have a routine. Time goes by slower when you are young because every day is a day of exploration and stimulation. As we get older we tend to fall into a routine which makes the days seem to fly by because we do not have this sense of exploration or stimulation of something new.
I am choosing to freeze time as much as possible by continuing to explore and to seek out as many new adventures as possible. Even if it means swinging a hammer, cooking a new meal, learning how to brew the perfect cup of coffee or teaching my dogs new tricks! I refuse to fall into a routine and this will be my summer of adventure…. again. 😉
