Life Reflections

As I meander along in the boat, I watch
the scenery and contemplate life. Long ago, I did some soul
searching, and it paid off. I found a fulfilling career. I also did
some spiritual soul searching and have been comfortable with my
personal beliefs and myself for most of my adult life. Now I’m
searching for something else, something beyond all that. I’m trying
to figure out what I want with the rest of my life.
I made some choices early on that I’ll
always have to live with. Haven’t we all? My early choices have
finally come full circle. This has allowed one chapter of my life to
end. Now, I find myself at a new beginning, wondering what it is I
want for the next chapter. I don’t want to make the same mistakes,
that’s for sure! But I also don’t have to worry about that because
that’s one of the wonderful things about life: experience and
introspection allow us to change, hopefully for the better.
After spending four days with family in
the deep north woods and after much reflection, I think I can put
into words what it is I want. I want to be surrounded by family and
friends, by people I enjoy spending time with and who enjoy spending
time with me. If you’re one of the people I’ve expressed an interest
in wanting to spend time with, or if you’re someone who has spent
time with me around a campfire, sharing a meal, going for long walks,
hanging out with our children, or just getting out in the community
and participating in whatever event happens to be the choice of the
day, then you are one of the people I am thankful to have in my life.
