Welcome To My Island
Mention the words "paradise" or "tropical" and most people tend to immediately think of some deserted island, with powdery white sand and crystal blue water, and nothing on the horizon but a giant orange sun and the reflection of waves as they bounce off in the distance.
I imagine myself in a beach chair made of native wood, sipping a Corona or a margarita under the cool shade of a giant palm tree and a coconut falling on my head.
(maybe not the coconut part....)
Back to reality!!
I've found myself lacking a lot of motivation as of late.
Besides working out and going to the gym, and maybe my writing, I've come to realize that I don't have much motivation when it comes to any other aspect of my life - especially my career.
Don't get me wrong, I'm very fortunate and thankful for my current position, but does it bring me a sense of accomplishment?
Do I have any passion for what I do?
Unfortunately, yet again, no.
I don't despise it, but I can't deny the urge to start, well, LIVING a little more of the life I envision in my mind.
For a guy with such an active imagination, this may be a challenge, but I can't help it! Be it a selfish notion or not, I see myself doing something remarkable and admirable. Whether it's something that makes me famous, or rich, or loved the world over, there's just something ELSE I need to do some day...............so why not make that day come sooner rather than later????
Having said that, I have decided to apply for the best job in the world.
I can't quite explain the new sense of excitement I've had since Flor sent me that link this morning.
It's not just an escape - I LOVE nature and the ocean!
Anyone who knows anything about me knows I love fishing and camping and hiking and bugs and being outdoors for any an all reasons. Boating, crabbing, lobstering, kayaking, rock-climbing, trail-running, snorkeling................I'm there!
Could this be something I was meant to do???
I'll be accepting any ideas for the video application I have to send in.
Can you think of something I should say or show?
Let me know!!
..............and if I by some chance make it, you're invited for a drink and a naked romp around my island!
