It’s rather pessimistic to think that our lives have already been designed. We are, consciously or not, affected by our past experiences and various stimuli to act the way we do, is it still possible for us to change our habits? How do we motivate ourselves to change when the rewards are delayed or may never occur?
While it is all too easy to indulge ourselves, I remember reading somewhere that our minds is just like our body, we need to constantly exercise to keep it fit, I believe our lifestyle is the same. Once we set our minds to it, we ought to act as our own patient supporter, have more grit, and become our own benevolent dictator in doing what is right and not what’s the easiest.
A snow jar with with a light switch! Right before our holiday trip, P & I finished all 4 snow jars. This is the last jar I made. It shows a scene with a German Shepherd and a hare staring at a bluebird, set against a snow covered pine tree and a dimly lit lamp post.
For 2 days, P and I took residence in Miller’s houseboat #8, in the middle of Suwannee river, FL. On day 1, we drove from Miller’s marina to Manatee Springs Park, docked there and canoed to the park for a hike. Next day we drove to east pass to Gulf of Mexico and docked next to a small island in the center of the pass.
Driving, experiencing life in a serene river right next to the sea is so special. Had the original Bahamas cruise worked out, we’d have never went on houseboat, and probably never will. Life works in mysterious ways!
Our first snow jar of the year! On Sunday, P & I went to a special Ace Hardware in Berkeley with a basement full of model train supplies. We got small model birds, animals, trees, and even lamp posts with a switch! After last a few nights of experimentation, we refined the process of making the perfect snow far. Here it is!
