Day 2 of 2018 and here’s what’s come to me and written itself.
Need I remind you (and me for that matter) that we only have today in which to live? Sometimes I find that time flies by and I realize that I have let days go by without living. What does that mean exactly? Well, it probably means different things to each of us, but for me, it means that my days sometimes are filled with mundane routine and there’s not even a small spark of newness to them.
I wonder if when the watch the reel of our lives when we get to the other side, if we will feel like that time was wasted or if we will realize that there was something important about days that feel spark-less?
Will we run through the Rolodex of days gone by that seemingly had no spark and berate ourselves? Or will be understand that those days had meaning because they were when we were experiencing, accepting and processing life in a quieter way?
I have friends who live life to the fullest all the time. They are busy, busy, busy – running here and there with their party lights on full tilt. It amazes me how they can be on so much of the time. Perhaps it is my chronic fatigue that plagues me that I don’t have that type of energy all the time. Perhaps it is because I can become introspective and often need to go within to process life experiences so that I can come out with enthusiasm for life again after I’ve been hurt. How do you live your life?
I love to hear how people deal with life experiences differently. I love how relationships change. I am an avid people-watcher and I enjoy learning about how people think and what leads them to their actions. Connecting with others makes me happy and gives me a feeling of divine purpose. Most of us by this age have experienced many different life experiences, good and bad. To connect with someone who understands what you are going through because they have had a similar experience is like finding a golden nugget, especially when you are both open to share freely.
So what’s my point? Obviously, I don’t know. This is just another post which has written itself and I allowed the words to flow from my fingers to the keyboard. If any of this resonates with you, please let me know.
