Geocaching Some More :)

Stratton and I once again set out on a mission to go find some geocache today. I had 10 planned for today but we had a detour. We set out around 11:00 this morning. It was a  pretty long drive (20 min there). On the drive there, there was an accident that made all the electricity along the northern side of 61. There was gas leaking as well. I look my time heading back because I didn't want to go back through there while the gas was still leaking. We found the cache pretty easy. Here are some pictures from the trip.

I thought this house was really neat looking on the way home so I had to take a picture.

Day 18 of 30 Day Blog


I have been learning how to live without regrets. I've been reading this book called Loving What Is by a lady named Byron Santo. She teaches you to just accept what has happened in your past because there is no changing it. 
So no, I don't have any regrets. I live with what has happened and I don't look back. 
Here is a little excerpt from her book.
Staying in Your Own Business
I can find only three kinds of business in the universe: mine, yours, and God‟s. (For me, the word God means “reality.” Reality is God, because it rules. Anything that‟s out of my control, your control, and everyone else‟s control, I call that God‟s business.)
Much of our stress comes from mentally living out of our own business. When I think, “You need to get a job, I want you to be happy, you should be on time, you need to take better care of yourself,” I am in your business. When I‟m worried about earthquakes, floods, war, or when I will die, I am in God‟s business. If I am mentally in your business or in God‟s business, the effect is separation. I noticed this early in 1986. When I mentally went into my mother‟s business, for example, with a thought like “My mother should understand me,” I immediately experienced a feeling of loneliness. And I realized that every time in my life that I had felt hurt or lonely, I had been in someone else‟s business.
If you are living your life and I am mentally living your life, who is here living mine? We‟re both over there. Being mentally in your business keeps me from being present in my own. I am separate from myself, wondering why my life doesn‟t work.
To think that I know what‟s best for anyone else is to be out of my business. Even in the name of love, it is pure arrogance, and the result is tension, anxiety, and fear. Do I know what‟s right for me? That is my only business. Let me work with that before I try to solve your problems for you.
If you understand the three kinds of business enough to stay in your own business, it could free your life in a way that you can‟t even imagine. The next time you‟re feeling stress or discomfort, ask yourself whose business you‟re in mentally, and you may burst out laughing! That question can bring you back to yourself. And you may come to see that you‟ve never really been present, that you‟ve been mentally living in other people‟s business all your life. Just to notice that you‟re in someone else‟s business can bring you back to your own wonderful self. And if you practice it for a while, you may come to see that you don‟t have any business either and that your life runs perfectly well on its own.
