“THE HEALTH OF THE EYE SEEMS TO DEMAND A HORIZON. WE ARE NEVER TIRED AS LONG AS WE SEE FAR ENOUGH.”–– Ralph Waldo Emerson
This last week was filled with several new opportunities and several ones that I have already experienced. We started the week with a new one. I needed a new roof, and for the last few weeks I have worked with insurance, gotten bids, faxed and made more phone calls than I would have liked to have filled my time but I learned a few things that made it worth it. The newness of it was in itself a learning process since I didn’t know what ice and water shield is, how much dumpsters cost, and how they measure the amount of shingles needed. By the end I was speaking “roofer”. I think in 20 years when I need a new roof I will be able to say what the dumpster said, “Bin there, dump that.” It may be a pun on words but it at least made me laugh and I had to take a picture. But I learned a lesson with all the added work. I learned that learning can never get old and it is never a waste of time.
But no matter what, we need to push our horizons and see further than our minds feel comfortable. We need to see the second in the minute, and the minute in the hour, and the hour in the day. Each step, no matter how often we have “been there, done that”, is priceless and fulfilling. It is our job to make sure it never gets old. Finding joy in the moment is where true happiness comes from.
