I keep looking at life in general and this trip/concept in particular and trying to get it to look like what is in my head. Dovid had the Emuna and the dream to sail around the world. I came with the Endeavor to “be the change you want to see in the world” and to meet people in places I have never been. I am the one who dreams of finding the people who don’t hate those who are different and adding them to a global network.
Being the change?
I made all these internet spaces to hold the idea of being more than just a selfish goal of what I did and how. Then there is the tiny day by day. Right now I am trying to figure out how to actually DO SOMETHING that is an action that aligns with my ideal. I have been so focused on the boat and how to get from here to the world that my mind feels like it has inadvertently narrowed. What am I actually doing to fulfill the ENDEAVOR part of this journey?
I’m not there yet. I have to find a way to fit in doing good in between working and boat maintenance and sailing lessons and blogging. I’ll do it. I’m going to look into volunteer opportunities here in Astoria. There are many. I want to find the ones that are about tolerance in addition to helping those in need. Stay tuned for my results on that.
All the other things…
Speaking of working and boat maintenance and sailing lessons and blogging, I still have all that to do. I’m finding that I have to write things down and see them on paper instead of putting it into my online or phone notes. We have our budget up on our wall now. I have to write out all my organization of the blog and video outlets and get on that so that the online spaces are more consistent. I’ll be rebooting this blog and starting over soon. Not today, but soon.
We have a lot to do on land before we can head out to sea. It’s all doable as long as we remember that each individual thing on the list is small and don’t focus on how long the list is. I keep reminding myself: WE CAN DO THIS! Because we can.
What are your plans or goals that you are working on? How do you keep focused in the face of day to day challenges? Please let us know in the comments. :-)
Thanks for keeping up with our goings on,
