Living each day much muchier
I don’t write what I know.
It breaks a cardinal rule of writing, but I couldn’t possibly know all the things I’ve supposed here in this blog.
I’ve lived it and meant it and, after nearly six years, hopefully reflect it… but I don’t write from knowing. I write because it’s hard and I’m learning.
This week I’ve been challenged again to open my heart up to magic, hope and providence.
I’m looking for a new place to live and need the right place to become available at the right time for the right price. I want to believe in providence, but it’s hard.
I deleted all my dating profiles because I’m tired of being one more in an oversupplied market. I want to believe in hope, but it’s hard.
I’ve managed my expectations because I’m realistic but I’m also shutting out life’s meaningful beauty as well as opportunity. I want to believe in magic, but it’s hard.
Anyone who claims to have found 42 (the meaning of life, the universe and everything) and presents themselves as having it all figured out, is suspicious.
Life is messy and the point is savouring it, not sorting it out.
So I write about magic, hope, providence because, like you, I’m learning. This is what I know.
Very nice post! Life’s a mystery and it’s great to see you embrace it. I doubt we’ll ever find the true “42” as you say and we should just ride the tide while we explore the greater aspects of our journey 🙂
The only thing I can add to this….
My brother once told me that if you ever meet someone who is “perfect” and never makes mistakes – it’s because they never try anything; they never attempt anything; and therefore never fail at anything.
As long as you never quit on yourself, you will get fulfilment in the end. It may not be the kind you want or planned for – but it will come.
