Lead - Follow - or get out of the way!

The Roman Gate in Trier Germany
Time keeps moving forward, life goes on, things change, work needs to be done, pleasure and play lay before us.  The past is gone, impossible to change.  I am impatient and I see that as a good thing.  I want to get started, to move forward, lead, or to follow, but not to sit idly by. I am prone to say yes, then try to figure out how after I am already in motion.  It works for me, I seem to find a way to go and do, to move onward.

So here we are at the time of the year when we tend to look back at what we have done.  For me life is about experiences, and my past is full of experiences that I love to talk about, but the future is spreads out far and wide in front of us.  Where will I go next year?  What will I experience?  Who will I meet?  Who will enter my life?  Who will leave it?

So get out there and do it, go experience life, write the ramble to tell the world about it and share it with your fellow bloggers, leave that comment, ask others intriguing questions, find your unique path in the world, take a step forward, followed by another, followed by another and lead the way, or follow a leader.

And so I finish a year of blogging.  My regular readers know I write and schedule most postings ahead of time, this one happens to be the last one to finish out 2015, though if something inspires me I can always add an extra posting.  I have posted over 400 times this year, missing only one day back in February (sorry about that) of posting at least once per day. I have set my goals for 2016.  I look forward to leading or following.  If I don't do that, I will at least try to get out of the way.


  1. if people don't get outta MY way, I run them over! :)

    I think too many humans just sit on their fat asses waiting for things to happen TO them; nope, you gotta MAKE things happen FOR you!

    and you no longer need that cane up there; keep making yourself strong and flexible. love your sweet bear often. say NO once in a while.

  2. Ths year you have survived a potentailly life changing disability...
    You are allowed to be thoughtful x

  3. Happy new year; may the next one be your best one yet!

  4. Happy New Year to you! I wish you safe travels and good health. And, I hope I can have some travels too this coming year! I'm ready for 2016! (Glad to see 2015 on it's way out.)

  5. Very good advice.
    I hope this new year will bring you many wonderfully positive adventures.
