We’re just a couple of weeks away from taking off for South America again. When I heard that American Airlines is now offering WiFi, my first elated thought was: “Wouldn’t it be great if we had it on our flight. That’s 15 hours away from work.” Don’t worry, the devil on my other shoulder quickly said “Are you turning into one of those jerks?!” I quickly gave myself a large-scale smack down / reality check. It got us talking, though, about how much life has changed over the last year. Wait, make that 2+ years. Anyhow, after returning from our first volunteer / exploring trek to South America, we were lucky to have more - but not much more - than the proverbial “pot to piss in and window to throw it out.” Wanting to live an even more authentic life, we had the novel idea of doing what we actually want to do in this world. Living deliberately - imagine that.
So, we master-minded our virtual business, got it off the ground and kept our focus on being the people we want to be. Flash forward to now, and we’re worried about an airline’s promise of an Internet connection. Does that make sense? No cause for alarm; we’re not all caught up for all of the wrong reasons. We’re in the thick of it because we love what we’re doing. Intention + a heavy dose of positivity - what a combo. However, balance does remain key.
It’s been an outstanding couple of years navigating the zig-zagging road we’ve been on. Last April, we never would have guessed that this is how things might have unfolded. Early in ’08 we had actually wanted to sell our place in order to relocate internationally. The economy got in the way of that big idea. We didn’t fret, though, because we’re now embracers of uncertainty who try to allow things to unfold just the way they are supposed to.
As we are drawn to say continually.... Who knows what will pop up next.
