4 Years in the Blog Game

Happy anny to my little bloggy-blog!  Four years is like double my longest relationship!  So cheers to that!

Usually I pen posts in the AM; with the coffee flowing and my mind fresh.  But not this time around; it’s 10pm on a Sunday night and the IPAs are goin’ down smooooth.  Perhaps this will be my most insightful, entertaining, and eye-popping post to date; a synergistic fusion of words and photos.  Or maybe my foggy mind will produce nothing but ego-driven, drivel.  Whatever.

Alright, so the phrase: Less is More…yay or nay?  I’ve been on a ‘More Kick’ lately.  I’ve been expanding, and buying, and doing…. A LOT!  And it’s great…I feel like I’m growing.  I’m striving.  But I’m also concerned about taking on too much; about losing my compass….and burning out.  It’s hard to know when to take a big step forward and when retreat a little bit; for the sake of health.  Perhaps the Less is More phrase doesn’t have to be a daily credo, but a long-term goal:  “I’m taking on more right now, to have less in the future.”  I mean, that’s kind of what retirement is all about, right?  …work now, play later.  In any case, I say Yay.  I still maintain it’s healthy to appreciate the little things, take inventory of what really matters, be happy with what you already have, and get off the merry-go-round mindset of, “If I just had this….or if I just did that…THEN, I’d be happy”  Be happy now…right this instant…with less.  No excuses.

Still stoked on the creative outlet blogging gives me; 224 posts would indicate something about it is clicking for me.  If you enjoy it whatsoever, I’m pumped!  Take lots of pics…soak it up…enjoy the ride.

So the gang went to Kauai the other week!  Beauty around every corner and every palm tree.  Quality time with friends on a sick island!?…doesn’t get much better.
