Utopia Next Stop!

7 Feb

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!

Seeing the Big Picture, by Standing Still!

10 Jan

Sometimes we all get so wrapped up into what is immediately in front of us all that we lose sight that there is a much bigger picture.

The drama of what another person says, which seems to important at the moment really has no importance at all in a few days.

Just when you think everything is crumbling around you, it always seems to work itself out if you just stand still.

Sometimes we all have to realize that no matter how hard we try to jam that square peg into a round hole, if we’d just take a deep breath, and do nothing for a bit, then suddenly that peg does fit. Perhaps not the exact way you wanted it to, or the time frame you tried to force, but it does fit.

Standing still has never been one of my strong suits. I’m the type who is banging that peg into the hole and by golly is going to make it fit! Afterall, this is my will, this something I have carefully thought out and for sure it is the right fit!

But, what we sometimes don’t understand in life, is that by standing still, and accepting the fact that what we perceive as the correct fit of that moment, just might not be what is meant to be or the time for it to be.
