Have you ever thought about living in a van? I don’t mean being homeless but purposefully living in a van that has been converted into living space. This is kind of like my Tiny House idea but with a twist!  With a conversion van, I could travel without ever leaving my home. No need to … Continue reading "Could You Live in a Van?" ...

2018 is winding down and I have a few goals I haven’t yet reached. One of my happiness goals is to complete a 7 Days/7 Gives. Every day for 7 days I plan on doing something for another person, an animal or the environment. One small  step every day for 7 days. I haven’t yet … Continue reading "Sharing a Gratitude Letter" ...

I use this blog as my therapy. There, I said it – my secret is out. I don’t write for you or for my friends or family. I write this blog for me. I write to keep myself sane. I write to figure out how to solve big and small problems. I write to make … Continue reading "Everyone I Know Needs Therapy – Even You!" ...

My local library has a huge book sale twice per year in a warehouse. Wandering the aisles is entertaining and you never know what you will find. I bought and just finished  reading “How Full is Your Bucket?” by Tom Rath and Donald O. Clifton. It is a short, easy to read book that uses … Continue reading "Is Your Bucket Overflowing?" ...

The leaves are changing colors. The seasons are changing. Are you changing? Am I? I sure hope so. Change is necessary for growth but some people resist it like it is the plague. Franklin Roosevelt once said “there are many ways of going forward but only one way of standing still”.  I memorized that quote … Continue reading "Tired of Stinking Thinking?" ...

As a Lake Girl, I see people fishing all of the time. At 5am, I hear the first fishing boats zip by the cottage. Maybe the early bird really does get the worm. By the time, I am drinking my first cup of tea, with my feet perched on the railing overlooking the water, the … Continue reading "Think Like a Fisherman" ...

OMG 2018 is more than half way over. It is amazing how quickly time zips bye and if we don’t pay attention, those goals we set way back in January become forgotten. Goals that are written down in January and never looked at again are simply words on a page. They are like wishes, they … Continue reading "2018 Goal Progress" ...

People spend a lot of time talking about trying to get healthy and the need to take better care of themselves.  Is health something that can be obtained and maintained? Are people in general healthy or unhealthy? Is it simply an illusion? I mean most of us spend our lives thinking about and attempting to … Continue reading "Stop Trying so Hard!" ...

I started working at age 14 and my work ethic is strong. I feel the pull to be productive, to earn money and to pay my own way. By the age of 22, I became a manager at the human service agency that I worked for and by the age of 25, I was running … Continue reading "What’s In Your Boat?" ...

If you are a frequent paddler here at My Little Blue Kayak, you know  I am not a fan of being super busy. I prefer a leisurely paddle to the middle of the lake, followed by 15 minutes of basking in the sunshine to an all out race across the lake. With that in mind, … Continue reading "Tying Up Loose Ends" ...
