Go Big Or Go Home In 2018!

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle. I have heard it has been said…go big or go home. Well, we are driving around in a Big Blue Treat Wagon RV, but we don’t have a home to go to. Yet. However, we did go to Big Bend National Park last week in Texas. And it was big. Real big. Bigger than my attitude, however, not bigger than my handsome. By any means. We got a map at the front, but I don’t need a map to my handsome. It is not accessible. Even with a cactus injury to my nose.

We may think that the world we live on is so big. And I guess in some ways it is…but in most ways, it is not. And as we have been across the United States many times now, we realize how small the world really is, yet how much we don’t know about it.  We never even knew about Big Bend National Park.  And we cannot imagine if we had never seen it.

You should know
Everywhere I go
Always on my mind
In my heart
In my soul

It makes us wonder…what else do we need to see?  What do we need to keep being inspired and to keep growing? Inspiration is so important.  Why? Because without it, we begin to think that the world is only what is immediately around us.

You’re the meaning in my life
You’re the inspiration
You bring feeling to my life
You’re the inspiration

We become too self absorbed.  We begin to think that we are more important than what we are.  The truth is, even I know that I am only a small part of the world.  There are people and animals and plants and stars and so much more all around me that are living too.  And I want to see more.

Even for those that cannot travel, inspiration can be gained by learning about other places.  Sometimes, we may be scared of other countries or people because we don’t have knowledge about them.  And maybe they are scared of us too.  They actually should be scared of me on most mornings before I have had a chance to look at myself in the mirror.  My reflection is like coffee.  It wakes me up.

And I know (And I know)
Yes I know that it’s plain to see
So in love when we’re together

Inspiration is needed to get things accomplished, to make the world a better place for all of us on it.  We also have to be inspired to BE inspiring.

If we only cared about what was around us with prejudice to things and people that we don’t even know about, what a waste that would be.  Imagine if no one ever saw Big Bend National Park.  Or the Rio Grande.  Or me for that matter.  What. A. Waste.

You should know (Yes, you need to know )
Everywhere I go
You’re always on my mind
You’re in my heart
In my soul

All of us have to find out what inspires us.  And a new year is a great time to start. Let the inspiration begin. But this time? I can’t tell you where to find it.  It is up to you.

Whatever, wherever and whoever inspires YOU to make a difference.  Look for it.  Learn about it.  Visit it.  Go for it.  Go big or go home.  But if home is what inspires you too, just make sure that you respect others and their home.  The world may be small, but there is room for us all.  Except I would like to have less cactus pricking my handsome nose.

You’re the meaning in my life
You’re the inspiration
You bring feeling to my life
You’re the inspiration
Want to have you near me
I want to have you hear me saying
“No one needs you more than I need you”

Today, we have a very long drive to Palmetto State Park in Texas…if we can make it. The RV is not doing good.  Keep an eye on our Facebook page for realtime updates.
