In The Moment – Sailing, Service & Fear

In The Moment – Sailing, Service & Fear

We’re all about living in the moment.  Sadly, we live a lot faster than we can film, edit and publish.  Which means there is so much more we would like to share than we actually have the ability to make happen.

Right this minute it’s bananas around here!  We’re docked up at the marina for service and we have a laundry list of boat projects going on (and plenty of actual laundry too).  Tools are spread out everywhere, sweat is on everyone’s brow and dirty is our current normal.

In a shake things up effort, I decided to pick up the camera and challenge myself to shoot, edit and post an in-the-moment video before the end of the day (even if it is midnight).

Now before you ask, this was not a form of procrastination on my end of the boat projects. Or, maybe it was? Either way I accomplished something today we haven’t done before, so I’ll call this a win.

So, if you’re up late with me and feel like joining in on our crazy for a bit, hit the play button.  Jason gives a shout out to our helpful commenters and I address some of the “easy” and “fear” questions we keep getting.

Thanks for watching!!!

Ok, I know I said no negative comments but that was really for the random YouTube trolls out there.  You guys are constructive.  So, what did you think?  Should I hang up my proverbial mic and stay off the soap box?  Or, did I start a conversation you want to jump in on?  Let me know, we could incorporate a little more of this in-the-moment style between our more polished pieces.

Oh, and I want to leave you with one last thing, my all-time favorite “fear” quote from Hellen Keller.  For a woman that was deaf and blind her voice is still heard and she manged to see the world.  She blows my mind.

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. God himself is not secure, having given man dominion over his works! Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold. Faith alone defends. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.

I filmed this video all on my own but Jason helped with the editing…because he is the man with the skills.
