This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle. Do you have a favorite spot? Maybe it’s your favorite restaurant.
Maybe it’s your favorite dive bar. How deep is the water?
Maybe your favorite spot is your couch. Or comfy chair. Or both. Like Digby.
But if you’re living in a house with wheels that moves around a lot, you may have a favorite spot. And then you have to leave that spot.
And you get sad about it. Until you find another favorite spot. But it’s still hard to say goodbye.
Many would disagree with my outlook on favorite spots. They might to tend to think that if I can find another favorite spot so easily, I may not have liked the old one that much to begin with. But that would be wrong.
I like myself and my company. I have learned that each favorite spot teaches me something new about myself, because it is new. If we stayed in one spot forever, what would we be missing out on? What would we not know about ourselves? Who would be missing out on learning something from us?
Today as we leave this Carrabelle, Florida place, I will miss my favorite spot in the sand. Every morning and every night, I sat in that spot because it was just right. It had a view of the water and the trees. And I could see the fishing dock in the distance. And I knew the tree stump there. And it was my spot. But I have to go.
The fact is, my favorite spot here could be changed tomorrow. The tree stump could be washed away. The fishing dock could fall down. But I would still have my company. And my memories. I choose to say goodbye when a place is like I want to remember it.
If you’ve been thinking of making changes, but you are afraid to leave your comfortable spot, think of what you could be missing.
What is comfortable for you today may not feel good tomorrow. Don’t wait until you’re forced to make a change. Have it be because you should. And you want to. And have confidence that your new favorite spot in life is waiting for you to get there. Make the leap.
We are back on the road today! Stay tuned to see where we are going. We don’t know.
