Brio, our new-to-us boat, is a 1981 Nor’West 33. Not the best-known boat, but a wonderful one nonetheless!! She was designed by Chuck Burns, built in California, and has had 2 previous owners (we are the 3rd). She has already covered a lot of miles (her first owners sailed her across the Pacific, up to Hawaii, and back to California), and we are so excited to see where she will now carry us!
Stop what you are doing entirely.
Are you sitting still?
Good — Now Listen.
Every moment is precious, passing, and fleeting.
Give up the petty, the worries, the lack, the stress.
Stop thinking about money, weight, fights, breakdowns, nasty comments or self-misery. Give up the pity party.
Leah? Embrace that you are ALIVE.
Overflow with wonder at this moment, this place you are in, this life you are living even as you are reading this.
Because Leah? This too shall pass. Time is a limited commodity, and it’s not a renewable resource.
Put your fears aside. Be full with gratitude. Smile. Laugh. Love. Dream. Hope. Build. Act.
Live with Brio.
Leah of Today
I want to be on a sailboat.
A flipping gorgeous sailboat.
I want to be taking that sailboat on all sorts of adventures — but I want to be in North America enough that I can afford those adventures, visit the ones I love and have left behind, and be reminded of the gory 9-5 details in such a face-smacking way that my heart races with the need to return to my corner of heaven.
Dream Leah — A dream has no boundaries. A dream says buy a boat — get a boat — and take your man and go experience life in the first-hand, 80 pictures / day way. Go feel the spray and smell the pungeance of life and stop stressing and planning and just start doing. The plan’s the first thing to go anyways. So stop planning and start crushing.
