Every person out at sea count the days…
Days until they return…
Days they will be onboard…
Days until the next port…
“Travel brings power and love back into your life.” Rumi
Meanwhile back at home there is family and friends missing their presence too.
Here are a few thoughts for the family and the seaman to think about in their loneliness…
We chose this. We live this. We can do this.
When I’m with you, hours feel like seconds…when we’re are apart, days feel like years.
Distance means nothing when someone means everything.
The ritual is either first thing in the morning to place the X on the day before on the wall calendar or to place the X on the date at the end of that day before hitting the sack. The most difficult part is missing family.
Here are a few more things to think about when away.
Family isn’t always blood. It’s the people in your life who want you in theirs; the ones who accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile & who love you no matter what.
Having somewhere to go is home. Having someone to love is family. Having both is a blessing.
There are two gifts we should give our children. One is roots, the other is wings.
Most of us have been on shore and have been with and shared space with our families more than ever before. The pandemic has been draining and you may be looking forward to “just getting through it”. How can you shift your mindset? What will you do with the rest of your year? What is your plan?
If you have a business – a career – a job – what is your plan?
How are you going to finish this year strong? What do you have planned for the next 77 days?
Being intentional and setting a plan will help you to achieve your goals. It is more than a just big X through a date on the wall calendar or counting down to “start fresh” next year. You still have 77 days left…will you make the most of them?
Share your intentions in the comments.
Would you like to review your thinking on this? In essence have a ‘thinking partner’ conversation for twenty minutes? No cost. No pitch. All for you.
Here’s the thing – in 77 days you can make your year or at the very least set yourself up for the next year. Let’s connect and have a chat.
