Ahoy! All Gains?

Last Update: February 08, 2022

Ahoy! Ahoy! Hark to all wonderful Wealthy Affiliate sailors, boaters, mariners, and even swashbuckling pirates of the sea . . . how are you all doing today?

Well, a funny thing came to mind today for me as I looked at the o' keyboard on my laptop ...

a vision of a sweaty, swashbuckling pirate came into view as it brought back a memory of a time when i worked with a group of informatics computer guys who prided themselves as a band of pirates! ... literally, they had 'pirate stuff' that decorated their offices ...

could you envision yourself as a dashing, swashbuckler? . . . a young dasher? . . . lol . . .

and what's the definition of a swashbuckler? = swashbucklers = daring adventurers. . .


OR:

OR:


I digress:

i think i've mixed up a dream about sailing away out to sea to know no bounds to Freedom!

Isn't that a lovely sight to behold? . . . sailing forth in life with the ocean breezes aboard deck?

Anyway, the dream continues --


in reality for today -- I came across some words of interest by William Shakespeare that i now share with you -- in the hopes that it just might help someone, somewhere, someplace in this big wide ocean of an earthly planet --

" . . . a reason people resist change is because they focus on what they have to give up, instead of what they have to Gain. "

"The meaning of life is to find your Gift. The purpose of life is to give it away!"

by William Shakespeare.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Yes, think of the Gains as change is upon us all.

If you've ever dreamed of going around the world on a ship -- go for it!

I'm really giving it some thought -- just imagine all the different ports of call that would be possible to visit.

I'm there.

Are you?


Just Imagine!

ok, wonderful WA swashbucklers -- all aboard the Success ship . . . > > >

Do some of those ports include Alaska? or Antartica, Keisha? I know the high seas can be rough in these areas! 🌊🚢

I'm only asking because I've always wanted to see the northern lights. 🌟⭐ and photograph a few penguins too! 🐧🐧

Hi, Keisha

The longest I have ever been at sea was on a 10 day cruise ship about 6 years ago, which we thoroughly enjoyed. I even brought a guitar with me that I played for an hour a day in our luxurious "penthouse" cabin before breakfast, but by the last day I was very happy to disembark and go home.

I don't know if I could do an around-the-world trip or even a 1 month voyage. However, I do like your Captain Jack Sparrow photo and the baby is adorable!

The Shakespeare quote is fabulous, no one has ever said it better!

Even on a big ship like that, there were times when you could really feel it rocking.

I got a little whoosy one night at the martini bar, but I think it was the alcohol. I'm not a big drinker and I hadn't even finished one full glass.

Stacy got a little seasick but then got used to it. I brought a whole supply of drugs on board, just in case. 😊

I use to be a sea scout, not quite the pirate. Lol. Although we did throw our scout master out of the boat one day, only to find out he couldn’t swim. Hahaha. We saved him, lol.
That’s when I gave up sea scouting and started scouting for other things.. arrgghh Maybe a bit of a 🏴‍☠️.lol.

I have dreamt of many things, a ship isn't one of them. I'd love to explore the Kimberley's in North West Australia, the Canadian Wilderness. Check out the Grand Canyon or the Chilean Mountains. There are so many places I'd like to see and explore, but not on a boat. Jim

This is about a dream for us. This is in our minds. If boats are not your thing, maybe lying
On the beach is a better image
for you. You don't have to get
on a boat literally. We are using
That image to help us picture
in our minds what we want in
life by using visualization. So welcome to our group of motivators and good luck!

you're such a treasure ... jolly good! ... lol ... cheerio ... :))

Yes I am, but my manifestation comes from above. my gift is giving it back and showing others how to reduce the stress in life. My gift is in writing so I
thought blogging was a better platform for me but I'm not sure if I can make money blogging?

Can you make money blogging? ...

it's generally about one's mind-set -- you can make money on anything if that is your goal ...

suggest you might want to re-visit your goals and you will then find your answer ...

I have friends who are hooked (not as in Cap'n Hook) on going on cruises in cruise ships.

Never really appealed to me but maybe... as I get older.

And I would think, as an industry hit hard by Covid-19, there might be some bargains coming up as they get back into it.

Aye, matey.

As they say "to err is human; to arghh is pirate."

That's a delightful statement -- must remember that one for 'pirate' friends!
. . . lol . . .

yes, the cruise industry is pretty much gone -- maybe barely on life support?

where there's a will -- there's a way!

used to hear about 'pirate ship' stories in certain parts of the world . . . wonder if they're still sailing about? . . . dunno . . .

good to see you -- aye, matey! . . . chuckles! . . .
