Re: Initial Offer Question

The first question is, do I really want to own a boat, or do I just like the idea of owning a boat? I don't see where you've actually answered that question yet. Especially to yourself. And a cost/benefit analysis won't really give you the answer. Because that choice is actually more an emotional one, than a pragmatic one (if the boat is to be anything more than a toy).

Is owning a boat a passion that must be sated, or a desire that would be nice to fill? Is owning a boat a need for happiness, or just an item on a bucket list of things that are suppose to make you happy?

Once you decide, if you do, that you really want to own a boat, you'll find a way to buy one ... not reasons not to.

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.
