Keep Calm and Cache On

Monday, June 10, 2013

Since I have decided not to let work bother me (much) anymore and since I have 2 other jobs that I enjoy the world is a brighter place. Had an absolute blast geocaching this past Saturday. Mike puts on on awesome event...and we got to connect with old friends and make new ones. Looking forward to exploring the area more in the future....

Life's too short...

Finding out yet another of my nursing home ladies has passed away and finding out that one of our Moose members passed away as well as one of the stamp club members I used to know makes me again realize how precious life is. My stitches are out but my energy is still lacking.

Trying to be thankful for my BF, my 3 PT jobs and my critters.

Been meeting some awesome people lately...letterboxers and geocachers....

Have fun PLEASE...don't end up like the guy in Billy Ray's song "Busy Man".

Ain't No Mountain High Enough...

Thursday, January 26, 2012

When you're up on a mountain in the moonlight surrounded by stars, snow and the cold night air hoping that you can get to the bottom and have your fiancée waiting for you, you have a lot of time to think and pray. I wasn't lost....I just had to find my way with no flashlight and no cell phone. Well after midnite I finally came out on the road and within 10 minutes was picked up by search and rescue. Cold, thirsty, hungry and bruised, I was alive. I am a survivor and I am sorry I scared every one but I wasn't giving up. I had the stars to guide me....and God to watch over me.
Will I make those mistakes again? No. Will I climb that mountain again? Yes. There are days I'd much rather be on that mountain than at work....I am finding it easy to feel depressed about not really being retired. I'd rather be sightseeing and hiking and playing with my cats. I try not to waste my time off, but I never seem to have enough of it. A week from now it will have been a year since we closed on this house and I still haven't touched anything in the garage. How do you get your motivation back? I used to be really active in a couple organizations but now I just want to run the car club and be left alone to geocache in peace. Just needed to vent....

    There are highs and lows in life just like the breath goes in and out I prefer to accept the lows.
Really accepting what is, means you don't think about it anymore. Dwelling on something means you want it to be different.
Wanting something to be different than it is causes us to suffer.
I also prefer not to suffer.
You can clear the mind by concentrating on the breath.

    Geeez glad you are okay. Think you had visitors to the garden the other day ;)
Sometimes you just need to take little detours.Maybe commit to do one box a week. then go hiking climbing and playing which in my world are WAY more interesting,Another way to face this dilemma is to admit you have lived with out the stuff in the garage for a year so you may not really need it LOL. Hang in there pretty lady xo

Well I finally turned the old place over to my caretaker and now the job will be to unpack & organize the rest of the stuff in the new place. Did a lot of thinking while I was cleaning. Good memories and bad. I know that all of our experiences make us who we are...but I still feel disrespected and used at times. Trying to balance the positives with the fact that I am constantly reminded of at least 2 years of wasted time. Trying to hold onto the thought that I am a better person than certain people deserve and trying to appreciate what I have. Wishing I had more time to just have fun and see the world...or even my state for that matter. But wishing doesn't pay the bills. I'll be OK...I just need a hug every now and then.

Nietzsche says:
We should consider every day lost in which we have not danced at least once.

Made it through the line dance jamboree and even did a couple two steps last night after the WOTM Installation. Trying to keep up my energy to get things done for the move. Not easy. Seems like there is a neverending list of things I HAVE to do and I don't have time to do what I want to do. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

    Seems everything today is about dancing-maybe it's time to get out there and do some!

    Life is not about waiting for the sun to shine, It's about learning to dance in the rain!
