I have found in life everything falls into two categories. Givers and Takers. Even in the Animal kingdom this exists, and to be honest and transparent, we all can switch. I have found myself in the taker roll far to many times. I know because I always feel guilty and feel the need to give back. That’s a healthy taker. The same can be said for Givers. Givers, can give to much. And don’t feel comfortable taking, that’s not a healthy giver.
I have found that a true taker can suck the life out of a room. Always trying to take advantage of givers and take great pride in that. And a Giver can give so much, that they feel resentment. So as you are reading this, which are you? 99% of us here a givers most of time, it’s one of the wonderful characteristics of our community. After all our passion is all about giving, giving energy with very little physical return. The good is received spiritually. So this begs the question. Is your boat a taker or giver? Does she give you back what you give? Yes this may sound rather deep. But it does get to the root of why we do what we do and who we partner with. And yes your Woody Boat is a Who, not a what!
Now wait a second. What is Matt on this morning? 99% of the things we do are emotionally driven. Even if its something you have to do, chances are fear is a driving force, I go to the dentist because? Fear of rotting teeth and bad breath. Fear of pain. Why do I own a classic boat that needs work. Tons of work? Before you buy your next boat, or think about getting into classic boating. Sit and meditate and search your true inner self. Why do I want this boat? What is it doing for me? What is it giving me? And what can I give it? Life? Purpose? Respect?
If you start your restoration or ownership with your new boat, understand the true relationship you have with her first. And then, and only then you will be a true partner with your boat, and experience true inner peace and joy. Wow that got a little deep way to fast for a Saturday morning. I so need a boat ride with one of my spiritual partners. but first one of them needs a new solenoid. And POOF I am back in the real world! Happy Saturday. Get out there, but not to far, it gets deep!
