If you felt what I felt, saw how I saw and lived how I lived, you'd be bursting at the seams, too.
I really don't know where to put all my joy each day. Facebook is one outlet but I feel like I need thousands of outlets. I wish I could pour my energy into a container that would light up the world somehow. Facebook is not enough. Connecting in person is not enough. Pouring my soul into my work is not enough.
I HAVE SO MUCH MORE TO SHARE THAN I'LL EVER BE ABLE TO!!!
What I share online isn't even 1% of all that goes on inside me and around me each day.
Most moments contain whole lifetimes for me. I only share the overflow. Mere snippets and slivers of a life deeply and well lived and thoroughly enjoyed.
To you, it's a lot. To me, it's barely a taste.
Does that irritate you? Inspire you?
It makes no difference to me.
At the end of my beautiful life (or even this day) I won't be wishing I lived or expressed more fully. I won't regret being too much for others. I won't be condemning myself for being far less than I could have been. I won't kick myself for not celebrating the countless moments that really matter.
