I think about a lot of things. Also thought just maybe somebody else would like to think about some of those thoughts...... So I "tweeted" this thought.
what if? what if we could treat success and failure, both the same? what if win/lose didn't matter? Hmmmm - a very different way to live!
It IS a totally different way to live. No more riding the mountaintop of triumph... nor wallowing in the despair of the latest valley of tragedy. I cannot tell you how refreshing it is to begin to live in this place... each day... the same wonderful, enjoyable experience... whether it's a win day... a lose day....or a draw day... doesn't matter.
A very good friend once explained to me how I could tell what made people tick... what motivated them... what were they interested in...? He said.... "You can tell what people are occupied with... by seeing what they are occupied with"... :) So... let it be known that one of the things Ellen and Philip are "occupied with" is innkeeping... the idea being that we want our guests to just relax and enjoy their time here... and... well.. be part of the family... we call it "the older tradition of Bed & Breakfasts... :)
