Bark less, Wag more, Be generous

Reflecting on 2020

For the past few months I’ve felt entirely uninspired. My work has become monotonous, my vacations have been cancelled, and everything I have to look forward just isn’t happening. This sucks.

I know that I truly few things that I can complain about. I’m healthy, still working and have a nice network of friends and relatives that have been helping me to navigate the craziness of this year. Overall the future is looking brighter than the present, so why do I feel uninspired and unmotivated?

My unscientific self-diagnosis brings me to a combination of lack of connections with real people and lack of a purpose. Too much time on social media isn’t helping either.

It’s no secret that I love theme parks. I go to Disney World as often as my wife will allow. I also make an annual pilgrimage to Universal Orlando to see the gore at Halloween Horror Nights. Unfortunately that’s not going to happen this year. UGH!

The good news is that in general theme parks are reopening and the economy is starting to recover. However I think that it’s just too risky for me to go back to Orlando anytime soon. Boy do I miss those Florida sunsets.

What’s next for me? I’ve been asking myself “At the end of the Corona lockdown where do I need to be in order to quit my job in 2021, build stronger connections, and prepare for the next few years?”

No clue right now, but those are definitely my where I’m focusing my energy for the next few months.

Also we got a new dog. I figure I’ll be working from home until early next year and have plenty of time to spend to spends with the dogs. Meet Sadie, she’s an 8 weeks old German short haired pointer and has been a handful to deal with for the past two weeks. I hope she settles down soon.
