Don’t Kick the Bucket


Good morning everyone. Have you ever had one of those days? I had one yesterday. I, literally, kicked the bucket, of deck oil. Thank goodness for Jen and the crew and their quick actions to help spread the oil before it ran away from us. No harm done in the end, except to my fragile ego. I kicked myself from one end of the boat to the other. As I told the crew later, that was some helping of “humble pie.” And a lesson in teamwork.

Humbleness… seems like an easy concept but not when you discover it the way I did yesterday. As I reflect upon my own imperfection I am always lured in to that delicate balance (and sometimes trap) between “human being” and “human doing.” Humility, for me, seems to come when the “doing” doesn’t work out the way I wanted despite the “being’s” best intentions.

So today I get back on the horse and ride like the wind “doing” my best as a “being” cause we got a boat to sail in a little more than 2 weeks. Yikes! Let’s hope for a little tail wind.

Hope you have a great day. Be well. Do good.
