Where do I go from here? I am wondering and watching and waiting. I have ideas that stick in my brain about what could be or should be or might be. How do they become a reality? Do not focus on the obstacles. Focus on the end goal so that you don't notice the obstacles.
When you are in a race do you look at each hurdle and think how can I get over that next hurdle? Or do you look forward to the finish line and let your knowledge and practice get you over each hurdle without stopping and thinking about it?
So, what is the finish line? Or are there arbitrary finish lines to keep moving? I have had many finish lines, but currently don't have one which is why I feel like I'm floating.
Ok, so it's been a while and probably no one reads this or will see this. But, I'm going to use it as my journal. I've been creating the idea in my head for a while of building shoezanium.com. I am going to push for this year to make it happen. I am committing to 5 hours a week of building it.

I am moving on from starting an online store until such time that I can start with actual inventory. I have learned a lot of how to set up a store, but I don't have capital to purchase inventory for the store. So, I will put this all aside until I decide to do something with it again.
This has brought me to another interesting point. Finding joy in the moment! Instead of living for the "when this happens" or "when that happens" I will enjoy the moment I have now. I have been blessed with a wonderful wife to share my life with and amazing children to grow with and go on adventures. It would be a shame to miss those moments because I was chasing something else.
