Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! It’s not a blog fired by the coals of discontent or stoked by the bellows of hot air. This is going to be a blog about a personal challenge met and conquered. Wow! Now that sounds impressive, doesn’t it? Remember I said a personal challenge?
I went on vacation. What? What’s the big deal? It was a bucket list item, too. I went on a cruise for vacation. My biggest memory of the ocean was deep sea fishing with my dad. I should say, he fished and I…um…chummed the waters. I tried again in the my early adult years. Several times. No change. I wished I could die! No remedy, neither pharmaceutical nor holistic, could cure my ills on the deep briny.
So it was with great trepidation and a new found resolve brought about by my faulty memory and a stubbornness inherited from my father that I looked forward to The Cruise! How bad could it possibly be, right?
I survived. I not only survived, I thrived. This was one of the best vacations I’ve had! The food, the movies, the stage productions, whale sightings and did I mention the food were out of this world. The crew made each of us feel as if we were their only concern even though there were close to 1800 passengers.
I encourage all of you to NOT put the bucket list off too long. Start checking things off now. If your bucket starts to empty, fill it back up!
