Two days ago, in my “Defining Moments” blog post, I declared my intention to commit to coasting after 70 years of climbing.
What do I mean by coasting? I mean I’m going to stop trying so hard to get everything right and I’m going to enjoy the ride more. It means that I’m going to believe that over my life I’ve built up enough energy and accomplishments to just let go and say “wheeeee! as I go coasting along. Coasting means that I stop worrying about what other people think or anything else, for that matter.
Coasting doesn’t mean that I stop trying; it just means that I really commit in a new way to an old resolution — to lose my investment in the outcome while remaining present and committed to the process.
Coasting sounds like more fun, doesn’t it? Let’s check out a definition of “coasting.”
As Mel Brooks might say, sorry about the word “creep.” Do you see coasting in my images for today?
Sounds like a good day to be coasting, doesn’t it? Here’s what I find when I search for “coasting” on YouTube.
I look forward to your coasting comments, below.
Thanks to all who are coasting together with me, here and now, including YOU.
You most certainly have earned the opportunity to appreciate and enjoy the ride of life, Ann!
