A Day in the Life of a Work Camper

A Day in the Life of a Workamper …. Not working

I think I mentioned in my last post that the camp job we came back to Milton to work in did not work out for us.  The job was miles apart from what we agreed upon and we couldn’t come to an agreement so we pulled out. My understanding is that this doesn’t happen very often. I’m counting on that being true or it takes the joy out of work camping. In the meantime, we’re staying at another campground in Milton Florida. We decided to stay around here as long as we can but it turns out this location is completely booked from December until April. We’re staying through November but will be moving after that. Right now I have another location booked for December only. .One of our sons, our grandson, and daughter in law are here as well as some good friends and a church we like very well. We were counting on spending time with them. So far, It doesn’t seem like there’s another work camping position in this area, so we’re looking outside of work camping for something part time here until we move on to the next work camping location.  We should have that determined by January or February.

While we’re here we’ve had time to rearrange some things in our storage unit and sell off more stuff that we no longer need. And I ran across some motivational material I’ve saved over the years I thought you may enjoy this.

Here’s one.   It’s called…The Company You Keep

It’s better to be alone than in the wrong company.

Tell me who your best friends are and I will tell you who you are.

If you run with wolves, you will learn to howl. But if you associate with eagles you will learn how to soar to great heights

A mirror reflects a person’s face, but what they’re really like is shown by the kind of friends they choose.

The simple but true fact of life is that you become like those with whom you closely associate for the good and the bad.

The less you associate with some people, the more your life will improve

Anytime, you tolerate mediocrity in others, it increases your mediocrity.

An important attribute in successful people is their impatience with negative thinking and negative thinking people

As you grow, your associates will change

Some of your friends will not want you to go on. They will want you to stay where you are.

Friends that don’t help you climb will want you to crawl

Your friends will stretch your vision or choke your dream

Those that don’t increase you will eventually decrease  you

 Consider this:

Never receive counsel from unproductive people

Never discuss your problems with someone incapable of contributing to the solution, because those who never succeed themselves are always first to tell you how

Not everyone has a right to speak into your life

You are certain to get the worst bargain when you exchange ideas with the wrong person

Don’t follow anyone who’s not going anywhere

With some people you spend an evening, with others you invest it

Wise is the person who fortifies his life with the right friendships

If you see people without a smile today, give them one of yours.
