My World

Why my life is good.

Today I:

  • slept in until I woke up
  • opened the curtains and looked out at a panorama of downtown Yellowknife, Frame Lake and lots of rocks and trees
  • enjoyed a bike ride around town in absolutely perfect weather
  • ate a huge mouthwatering slab of grilled arctic char
  • went for a scenic flight over the untracked wilderness northwest of town
  • watched the sunset
  • landed back at Yellowknife and went to bed, again without setting an alarm clock

Okay, not every day is like this, but anyone, anywhere, anytime who catches my whining about not achieving my intended career goals should kick my butt.

Very well said. I had a similar thought today, looking around at what joys I've grown accustomed to. Not to say that goals and dreams don't have their place, but they shouldn't prevent us from enjoying the day. That sounded like a nice one.

The pictures of Yellowknife in your previous post were gorgeous. Especially the sunset/sunrise, ( how late do you have to stay up to see that? ) but experiencing that arctic lake wilderness would be wonderful. In the summer, I should add.

At the risk of repeating myself, Vonnegut again:

I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, 'If this isn't nice, I don't know what is.'

I think this short little post put a warm fuzzy smile on a lot of people's faces. I know it did mine. Thank you.
