Someday, This Could All Be Yours

My first recollection of a someday was very disappointing when my 3 year old self never turned into a dog or a horse but I still carried on and got over it.

Fast forward … after years of practice creating experiences for corporate folk, now’s my chance to plan how this looks, again, for real, no backs, no do-overs, no storage lockers, no road trips … really? … as she sat there waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Which would be fine too … size 8.5 please.

Life in the North Woods

There wasn’t a plan for the saucer size spider on the kitchen floor.

I knew that I wouldn’t try anything that had to do with picking it up so I grabbed a mixing bowl, trapped it and stood there hoping that the bowl wouldn’t start moving … if it did I’d grab the dogs and we’re out of here.

Later that day, help arrived and the spider – still under the bowl – was released back into the forest unharmed.

Must be a wake up call to prepare for a face to face with a bear, wolf or a zombie.

Spiders
amen.

hope you’re proud of yourself

For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it.

I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.

– F. Scott Fitzgerald
