funny now days i have new cars, a house, toys, a boat etc and yet I still find myself longing for the days when a meal was questionable and the work was hard but honest if it came along. a man came to me once and asked if I REALLY wanted a job. I said yes, and so began my comeback thanks to a foreman on a pipeline. he wasn't kidding when he said you better want to work but I can't say I didn't enjoy it.
I'm glad to have regained financial stability but I sure wish I could keep the "no worries" attitude with it.
funny thing revisiting this post. that was two years ago. today I am back in a camper, making money, and starting my sailing lessons in florida. my goal is to someday liveaboard a boat. I guess this time I'm a number 1, I have to admit it makes the experience much more enjoyable.
