When Good Enough Becomes Never Enough

When Good Enough Becomes Never Enough

Ah, very wise words; ones which I should embrace as deeply as I can. Often, I’m absorbed into the trap of comparison, and lose sight of “enough”. Losing sight of MY goals and dreams.

This also reinforces the importance of having your own goals and dreams. Vision gives you something to focus on, pulling you forward. That’s critical to avoiding a self-pitying spiral of misery.

Summer Approaches

School breaks close upon me, causing me to wonder: what shall we do with this gift? Trails to bike and hike, beaches to gaze out from, museums, festivals…so very much to consider.

This year I plan to, well, plan better. Instead of, in September, wondering about all the stuff undone. I’m starting a list, but am not sure what shall end up on it just yet. Here’s where my brain is now:

The Hibulb Cultural Center on the Tulalip reservation. Nearby, yet I’ve never visited there.

Seattle Center cultural events. Always something interesting going on.

More hikes! Just some day hikes. More fleshing out needs to be done.

Mountain bike trails. More research needed, but I’d like to include Steven’s Pass’ Bike Park and the Burlington indoor park.

The basics of a start. We’ll have fun enriching this list. Let me know your ideas.

Site News

Recently, I decided to host this site on my own servers. In that process, I thought I ported the whole thing over to NotJustSeattle.com. However, something broke in that process and I see this site remains, and is independent of my main site. With that, going forward, I’ll update NotJustSeattle.com, and these pages will be left to languish. At some point, I will either find a way to port the wordpress url over to my site, or I’ll simply kill this.

 

Anyway, see you on the internets!

Oh, the Joys of Spam

I constantly get spam messages regarding how to get REO (bank owned properties) contracts. Lately, with HUD changing their listing broker structure, I’ve seen a battery of “act now! HUD’s reassessing their contracts…” missives. The sad/funniest part of the whole thing is that it really is, now, too late. BLB (the company that has received the HUD contract for Washington) has closed applications and is in the process of reviewing. Scammers can’t quit, I guess.
