I took a little break from posting here as I explored a few other options. The weather hasn't cooperated with the fishing part of my world so I have had a lot of time to sit, relax, and think about the future. In short, asking myself "what do I want to be when I grow up?" I don't think any of us can ask this question enough, at least I can't.
I find that life presents a fluid stream of opportunities. Some you jump at, some you wade into and others you walk by.
During some of the days within the past 3 weeks I have walked by the chance to do outdoor tasks due to the relentless rain and snow. Other days I have waded in a bit to test the waters - baking more, cleaning more, a few Harley rides, and fishing video creation to name a few. On the other days I have jumped head into the waters and come out refreshed and ready to swim. A new job, a new opportunity, new book ideas, writing a few chapters throughout the nights, and even more scripting for the fishing videos. Head over heels I have jumped in and checked it out.
What I have found, in my jump, is that there are a lot of people out there, some call them friends, that were and are more than willing to make sure I stay in the water. Working on new projects at work, creative writing and story ideas, help reading through chapters, working on blogs and videos, moral support and at times just making sure I am staying in the deep end.
As I look back on the last 3 weeks I wondered how all of this became possible. How did I get the jump in point without really knowing how to swim? It was today on my drive home from work that it hit me! Had I not told some of my closest friends my dreams and passions I probably would not have taken the jump. It was by their support and words of encouragement that gave me the feeling and strength to live my passion and try something new.
It reminded me that we all need a lot of support surrounding us during our time on earth. They are earths little angels that are placed in our lives to help us along the way. They are daily reminders of who you are and are more than willing to help you become who you want to be -- if only you let them in on your secret passions.
I am definitely relaxed and ready for the next chapter (s) in my life. A great job takes care of a lot of hours, but there are a whole lot of other things besides work I can accomplish as well.
Take the time to think about all that is possible in your day. You have 24 hours every day to make a difference in your life! Don't waste them, don't stop them from happening, rather embrace every second and get ready for the world!
