Topic for today: Experience
I was nominated for this fun challenge by the one and only Rory at A guy called bloke and K9 Doodlepip
I’ve said this before, but if you haven’t visited his site, it is a must. He amazes me always by the amount of content he can write each and every day. Every topic you can imagine, he writes about. He is also extremely generous in recognizing other bloggers.
Per our creator of this challenge:
Everyone loves quotes right?
So l figured to introduce a bit of light hearted and simple fun with this game.
Every day l will pick a topic, post 2 quotes and nominate 3 bloggers, who in turn will post 2 quotes on that topic and nominate 3 bloggers of their own and let’s see how far we can take that topic for the day.

My 2 Quotes:
“No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.” – Heraclitus
“Wealth is the ability to fully experience life” – Henry David Thoreau
These two quotes really spoke to my character and my beliefs. I was talking to French Charming this week about the fishing trips I used to take with my friend Miami L. He commented that I seem so happy talking about those memories and wanted me to go fishing again to have the same experiences again. I told him it wouldn’t matter if I went to the same place, even with the same people because it was a moment in time and everything has changed since then. The value is that they were great memories. You can never have exactly the same experience, it is a moment that can never be duplicated.
I recently had a discussion with a boss who commented how much more money I could make if I worked as hard as I do but without taking time to go to France every month. I told him no amount of money could make up for the experiences I would give up, never mind giving up time with my true love. I don’t work for the money itself, I work to have money to pay for the things that enhance my life – experiences.
As always, this is just for fun. There is no obligation to participate. At least, just know I was thinking of you.
