Find the Joy in Life...

Make the hard decisions when they need to be made like living more frugally so you get out of debt then avoid debt, then invest in your future.  This can be literally money, but it is also building skills or building network.  It can be being healthy inside and out.  Struggles and overcoming a deficit make some of the sweetest or at least memorable moments in life.  In the context of death you will see life blossoming around you.  And if something or someone is truly crushing your soul then fight back.  Be engaged but nurture yourself too.

Find A Way is about enjoying today. Not wishing for some mythical future life stage (retirement, dream job, child rearing, empty nest, ideal weight, etc) when everything will be easier. It’s about experimenting to find what works and what’s fun and it’s about trying new experiences and answering some of life’s weird questions: Just how many different mushrooms could there possibly be on a one-mile hike in the Smokies? Just how close to the top of the crock can I pile this ferment before it blows the lid off?  We’ve said many times “I can’t wait to retire” and one day I challenged myself to list the things I can’t do now and the list wasn’t long, basically things that are required to be done during my working hours and would take longer than my available paid time off.  Great! One less barrier to living life fully.  This is a journey of figuring out what works for us, now, to find the time, energy, and inspiration to learn, create, and enjoy.

Midwesterner politeness can drive people to curse.  I was on a trip in Cinque Terra, Italy trying to get a coffee during the morning rush.  I stepped to the side to let all the Italian speaking people who knew what they wanted go ahead, but in the process I broke...
