Sunshine is not in the forecast

Sunshine is not in the forecast for the entire week.

In Florida.

The sunshine state.

What the?

Every situation, properly perceived, is an opportunity.

Duly noted.

Pack light for island time

Swiftcurrent Glacier from Swiftcurrent fire tower. Love going from 9,200’ to sea level.

Pack light for island time.

Pack light for everything.

Lose the weight and burden from non-essentials.

A multi-night backpacking trip illustrates this well. Everything you carry adds weight and takes up space in your pack.

Freedom comes at the far end of your comfort zone.

Wealth is learning what you can do without.

Island time is discovering the joy from being unencumbered.

No clock, no shirt, no problem.

Mother Teresa & Jimmy Buffett

Mother Teresa & Jimmy Buffett hold very special places in my heart.  They seem to have nothing in common, right?

And yet I have aspirations to be like both.

Everyday I wake up with the grandiose goal to save the world – you know, to serve the poorest of the poor.

And each day I also want to savior the world – you know, Carpe Diem, seize the day.  Enjoy life for all it’s worth.

This makes it hard to plan the day.

Life’s A Beach?

“Life’s a beach”.

Ever heard that one?

I think it’s a spin-off of, “Life’s a bitch, and then you die”.

I look at those two phrases and am reminded that we have a choice.  We always have a choice.

Over our attitude.  Maybe nothing else, but certainly our attitude.

And no one ever said choosing was easy.  It can be extremely difficult.  But we do get to choose.

And I believe I must choose the positive attitude versus the negative attitude.

If this bores you or seems too elementary, go look in the mirror and ask yourself, “Am I a mountain of positivity or a molehill”?

What?  You do have a mirror, right?

I just looked.  Looks like I’m an antagonist this morning.

I chose it on purpose.  Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂
