Sometimes in our daily lives we are have the “pedal to the metal” with a specific purpose, on target goal, and clear direction in all that we do. These moments are the best as you know what you have to do and can see the prize!
But then, there are the other moments which seams to be where I am at, at the moment. Granted these moments might last an hour, a day, or a year. You just never know. I will hope for the hour long stint version!
If you’re one of the several hundred who follow this blog (ut um), religiously, then you know I just moved to a new city, a new home, with pretty much just the skin on my back, a nickel, and 1 smoke. Ok, I don’t smoke but that is how they would have done it in the movies! 🙂
The first 2 weeks in my new home were full of all the new amazement of discovery that comes with moving to a new place. Figuring out where you put the coffee mugs, and how to get to the grocery store proved to be enough to keep me engaged and the adrenaline flowing. Now 2 weeks in, I’ve settled in, I’ve been to the grocery store several times and know where the peanut butter is in the store.
Now what seems to be the question rattling around my cavernous head. Why am I here? What am I suppose to do? What is life suppose to be and where is that darn purpose that I need to keep a fine balance in my daily pursuit of happiness?
All questions, and no answers! Darn, I hate when that happens!
I suppose in times of void, you count your blessings, look at the wonderful new things in front of you, simplify, build a good foundation one brick at a time, and just float for a bit…..the light off in the distance will show itself in time.
