Cleaning things up
I worked on the boat some yesterday. I decided to take a couple of days off because of having spent so much time at sea. So I got a scrub brush and started with the hull, scrubbing away to get rid of any mold. It's in amazing shape and already looks very nice and clean.
It's peaceful to work on something and make it look new or nearly new again. I get such satisfaction out of restoring things. And I take great care of those things that I do have. I suppose it's an appreciation of all the hard work that it takes and once I get it where I want it, I don't want to have to go back over it again and again. Just maintain what you've got and not let it go into decline.
That's the way I see my program as well. I want to take action steps to move forward in restoring myself and not slide backwards. I don't mind going back over the steps since they are really what keep me maintained in a state of sanity and serenity. This is a program of action.
