Happy Birthday Little Whale

Eight years ago I watched a humpback whale breach in my backyard over and over.  It inspired me to go to the garage, get a shovel and start digging a hole in my front yard.  I had no idea that this action would lead to creating the greatest passion in my life, The Westport Whale.

Lots of people want to find that "thing" that makes them spring out of bed every morning.  I'm no expert in this area.  I still have lots of things to figure out, but here is what's working for me in creating a life I love..

1. Be Curious
2. Have Fun
3. Work Hard
4. Have Confidence
5. Be Patient (I'm terrible at this)
6. Have Compassion (the world needs more of this)
7. Cultivate Inspirational Friendships
8. Listen
9. Most Importantly, Love Yourself

I am only one person but I really have faith that this concrete creation is going to generate something truly amazing that I can give back to the Ocean and keep it healthy.  I couldn't have done this alone.  I am so lucky to have all of you in my life.  Now who would like some birthday cake?
