What’s Next in Your Life

What’s Next in Your Life

what's next quote

So recently I wrote a post talking about the fact that I feel happier than I ever have and it’s a great place to be in life.  After taking some time to enjoy that realization I’ve turned to questions of what’s next?

Well if you have been reading this blog or know me personally you know at least part of the question of what’s next, involves where to next?  That question I already have answered, in the short-term my next adventure will be playing guide for a couple of friends in New Orleans at Mardi Gras in February.  I love New Orleans and love Mardi Gras, specifically I love Mardi Gras parades.  So I’m looking forward to five days in the Crescent City, eating, walking and photographing my way across one of the best cities in America.

I’m hoping my next big adventure will be a trip in December 2020, I’m planning on taking a trip to Antarctica.  A flight to Chili and a cruise to my sixth continent, hoping to do a trip where I can actually spend one night actually camping on the continent of Antarctica.

But, the question that I haven’t answered is what’s next?  I have started a new and good job, I’m six or seven years from retirement but that’s a little too far out to be my only goal.  And we all know that setting and achieving goals help us stay happy.  So what’s my next life goal?  I have some things in mind, some work goals, several books that I’m interested in writing, and I think I can do all those things.  I’m about to finish my third book so I’ll have the space to work on my fourth.  There are health goals that I need to achieve, I haven’t been very good about my diet over the last year.  I need to lose another twenty pounds.

What I’m looking now for is impact, I think when you hit a certain age and you see that there are certainly less years coming than have gone, you look to make an impact.  Generally in these posts I try to provide answers, examples of what you can do, but you know, sometimes it’s really important to take a little time to just focus on the question.

So tonight friends, ask yourself a question, something that you need to answer, something that might lead to improving your happiness.  Feel free to share those questions out in the comments and as always, have a happy day my friends. ~ Rev Kane

    This summer I spent a week on the coast in Newport, Oregon near Portland and while there visiting a former Sierra College student, she had on two short documentaries on our food. I found them both to be facinating. I know people hate getting diet advice from skinny people, right? Like, you are 80% what you eat and 20% movement (my favorite) and shop the outer walls of the grocery store, where the whole foods mostly are:
    “The Magic Pill” on Netflix studies the diets of Argentinian aborigines over several decades.
    “The Fish on my Plate” airs on PBS and is about the world’s fisheries and how to rebuild them. Both are worth a watch in my opinion. ~ Dianne
