When I was a young I dreamed of getting to travel and see some of the world. Coming from a small town in Wyoming, I didn't think that would be very likely. So I settled for dreaming and letting my mind take me on adventures to new and wonderful places future and past, even to worlds I could create.
I enjoy the worlds I create, but I have been blessed to be able to travel. My first adventure was still when I was in High school to Mexico with the Spanish club. I thought that was going to be a once in a life time opportunity. Well, I've been back to Mexico several times and to different locations. So far, for Mexico, it is hard to pick my favorite spot. I've found interesting and enjoyable things in every place I went.
It has led me to believe a lot of our experience, I'm not saying all but a lot, is affected by our attitude. Like this in our lives, it is our attitude that flavors our life experiences. We can be happy and content, work and change, forgive and move on, or we can complain, be disappointed and miserable. When life gives us bumps and major problems it's up to us how we handle it.
A very wise man that I respected said,
"Life is to be enjoyed not just endured."
This blog took a different direction than I'd planned, but I'm leaving it this way with the hope that you will enjoy life. That you will dream of where you'd like to go and what you'd like to accomplish in life then work to make it happen. I'll leave you with another quote I read somewhere and really like,
"The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary."
