I feel like I'm constantly aiming at a million things at once, and I'm effectively missing each target.
I really don't think all of us are meant to be singularly focused, or are even capable of it. I do wish I could be though.
I think it would be wonderful to want one thing more than other things, but I want so many things equally and simultaneously. I don't want to have to choose.
So I dabble in this and I dabble in that and then forget about both when the next treasure comes.
And here's my confession: I find more fulfillment in the idea and the possibility of these things than in the actual follow through and reality of them. Please tell me I'm not the only one.
Has reality EVER surpassed your dream? Mine has not. Not ever.
My self-created version of reality has always been so much grander than actual reality - which is fairly boring and highly disappointing by comparison.
So I make my own world.
And I live in my head a lot. And I dream a lot. I don't plan a lot. But I express a lot. And I sure as hell shoot a lot of well-intentioned arrows out into the ethers with the hopes they might land somewhere close to my ultimate vision.
That ever-elusive North Star.
And it's the arrows (my inspired actions) that help me to feel like I'm doing my part to make magic happen. Because I really love when magic happens.
And anything that feels like magic gets my undivided attention until something even more magical appears. Which happens often, so I never stay put.
How am I to choose when there is even more awaiting me right around the corner? And there's ALWAYS more waiting right around the corner.
So I just follow the sparkles because the path lights itself up.
And I hope for the best.
Who knows where I'll end up.
