Remember the song lyrics? Something like, “should I stay or should I go now? If I stay there will be trouble, if I go there will be double.” Well isn’t that the truth! You know, not everyone is going to agree with you if you decide that you want to do something ‘out of the box’. My conclusion is that as we share our passion to bigger and larger things than we have experienced in the past, as we desire to expand our boundaries, it makes some people uncomfortable. For some the unknown is a scary place to be. For others they reside in the unknown. We have come to appreciate a bit of the middle ground!
Some people look at the dreams you share with them through a lens of ‘how does this affect me?’ others ‘what if my loved one gets hurt (physically or emotionally)’ and still others just can’t get on board because they don’t understand the desire the fuels your dream and may even feel a bit jealous that they aren’t as “brave” as you.
All I know is that making small steps towards Living Life More is causing a little commotion and only a handful of people ‘get it’ and are cheering us on. We are excited for what we are referring to as the NEXT in our lives. What’s next? We aren’t sure yet, but here’s what's on the agenda for the coming few months: more downsizing of our stuff, more resumes being sent out, a long weekend to the gulf coast of FL, and a little jaunt out to California. We are going to check out some cities, some shore lines, and enjoy exploring and making memories. The hope is these little steps will bring us closer to the edge where we get to JUMP into the NEXT and continue to Live Life More! We would love to hear about your NEXT!! Drop us a line!
