"Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things."
Isn't life just like that? So many times I've felt like I was in the middle of a shipwreck, only to discover that without the wreck, I wouldn't have discovered the paradise. Too bad such discoveries usually have to involve getting older.
Randi,It's true in my case. At 40, I was shipwrecked. At 70, I'm looking back on 30 years of paradise. And, hey, I couldn't even swim.smiles,rb
Sorry about that. It was WAY too dramatic.... Something about recognizing when the ship has wrecked and making an effort to swim to shore instead of just floundering in the wreckage.
this is just the inspiration i need. thank you, robert. swimming and trying to breathe,aileen
Aileen,In between swimming and trying to breathe, don't forget to take a few underwater photos.smiles,rb
Liz,Apologies for a belated reply. Another word for "floundering" is "drifting." I have found, in my own experience, that you can simply drift in the wreckage of your life, without goal or purpose or rational thought, until something or someone (usually someone) rescues you. Looking back, you cannot imagine what you were thinking of.smiles,rb
