Food for Thought

We recently received a forwarded email with "6 Principles of Life" that struck a cord with us both. The more we think about them, the more motivated we are to finish this project, start unraveling our ties to land life, and really start our cruising adventure.

So with that, here are the principles that may hopefully inspire you in some way as well:
  1. There is no point using limited life to chase unlimited money.
  2. There is no point earning so much money you cannot live to spend it.
  3. Money is not yours until you spend it.
  4. When you are young, you use your health to chase wealth. When you are old, you use your wealth to buy back your health. The difference is that, by then, it is too late.
  5. Happiness is not determined by how much one has, but how little he needs.
  6. There is no point working so hard to provide for the people you care about that you have no time to spend with them
It's so easy to daydream about cruising from the comfort of your office; the hard part is actually pulling the plug and embarking upon the adventure. Psychologically, we're both ready; now we just need Phoenix to be...

  1. This is fantastic! We will anxiously look forward to your updates and follow along. May Phoenix bring you wonderful adventures as Eager Dreamer did for us. We are looking forward to the Andromeda party this summer.
