We all go through life searching for that special place where we fit in. This is a place where decisions come easily, people are happy to see you, life unfolds in a way in that no effort is required. This place is called Utopia.
I moved to my current “home” thinking it might be this magical place. I came with wide eyes, a spring in my step, and open arms and mind to everything and everyone that might cross my path. Well, it is not.
Living here has not been a train wreck by any means but it certainly hasn’t lived up to all the hopes either!
As the saying goes, ‘A Rolling Stone Shall Gather No Moss’. Well, I’ve lived a pretty interesting life thus far, as I have “rolled” from one adventure to another and maybe a little moss wouldn’t be so bad. The difficult thing about moss is there are so many kinds. A guy has to be careful and take his time choosing the right moss that is best suited to grow on him.
I know Utopia exists. I know there is a moss patch that is all that I dream it will be. I know kindness, friendship, love, exists on my awaiting moss patch. I know I will find it. Perhaps it is time to set aside all the fears of what I potentially have to lose, and grasp firmly all that I have to offer and can be. There comes a time in everyone’s life when they spread their wings and fly.
Being your future, being all that you dream you can be, being “YOU” is Utopia. It is time for me to be me! Time to roll!
