Yacht: No Regrets

Share Your World – 2016 Week 36


If you were given a boat or yacht today, what would you name it? (You can always sell the yacht later)

Aren’t boats traditionally named after women—something like Mary Jane or Lucky Lady?

But I like to buck tradition. I’d name my boat No Regrets because that’s the attitude I’ve adopted after studying life stories and thinking about my own life for several years. Of course I’ve made mistakes, done some things I shouldn’t have done, and failed to do some things I should have done, but instead of regretting them I’ve chosen to embrace them as learning opportunities along my life journey. Instead of regretting parts of my life, I own them as part of my experience, and therefore part of me, who I am and who I’m still becoming.

Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you best? (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey) Plus what would the 8th dwarf’s name be?

Definitely Sleepy. And the 8th dwarf’s name would be Casually Dressed.

Name a song or two which are included on the soundtrack to your life?

  1. All You Need is Love
  2. Till There Was You

Complete this sentence: I like watching…

… sports, at least right now: the U.S. Open Tennis tournament and the Seattle Mariners making a frantic run for the second wild-card playoff spot. In fact, this afternoon I’ll be switching back and forth between tennis and baseball.

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

This past week I’ve watched a lot of televised tennis and baseball, which I have enjoyed but which has also not left me much time for all the blogging I want to do. Next week I hope to get caught up on some of that blogging, but we have a couple of events scheduled that may get in the way. Thank goodness WordPress allows backdating.

I hope everyone will have a week filled with discoveries, laughs, and enjoyments!
