When should Eagle leave Miami @ CodeWOW! :)

Submitted by eagle on Wed, 04/20/2016 - 23:53

Update to this question... I'm still wondering when or whether to go. All of your thoughts are very welcome!!! :)

Currently I feel like I'll probably go in a week or two. Still have LOTS of stuff I want to do here, and I love Miami. However, I also still very much want to get up and around some of the more northeastern parts of the country this year. It's tempting to stay, but it's a temptation I think I should refuse, in favor of having an awesome summer adventure, with great opportunities ahead! :)

Rock & Roll!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Live gratefully! :)

Live gratefully! :)
Yeah, things don't always go your way. However, you get to live an amazing life, and a lot of it is thanks to other people. In spite of the challenges, focus on the good things, and express thanks! :)
Also, gratitude improves health, and improves society, and has many other positive effects! :)

Guidance for Youth in Tough Places

What should a youth who has been kicked out of the house do?

What should the youth do immediately, and in the medium and long terms?

A youth who has been kicked out of the house should first secure the basics of life, then decide on a new course, and go forth.

The first step is to get to a safe place. This could include a library, a fire station, a trusted friend's house, or a community organization.

Start!!!!!!!! :)

Start! @ CodeWOW!!! :)

Get going now!
If you lack motivation, it can help to start doing an activity. Once you get going, make sure you finish! Also, if you're unsure what to do, try something new.
Motivation is personal, it depends on you. What do you care about? Why? How does it make you feel?
Sometimes you have to go out there even before you feel ready, in order to discover and create your motivation.
So instead of being jealous, just go out there and start! :)

Rock & Roll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Derek is a cool bike rider. We met in the Florida Keys, and spent some time together in Key West, along with Mike, another cool bike rider. Here is video Derek shot, which includes a few segments with yours truly, as well as many of the gorgeous routes we each rode through the Florida Keys:

Some of the source video also appears in my celebration post Year Three in Key West!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

The more I experience Miami, the more I love it. This place is fantastic, in all the best senses!!! :) There are so many cool people with a variety of cultural attitudes, such gorgeous scenery, and so many exciting developments! :)
It's really inspiring to spend some time here. It's also really difficult to decide what to do! :) Doing anything, or everything, or nothing, all seem like good options in Miami!!!!!!! :)
I've been doing a lot of writing. It can be a really wonderful location for writing. So big and busy yet simultaneously with such lovely places of quiet and tranquility and natural beauty. Every kind of thought or emotion or action to uplift and inspire. What a wonderful city!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Rock & Roll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
