But looking over the map
I can be a deep thinker, but I don’t know if I would consider myself a “deep person” – it’s really all about being over analytical and always trying to find an answer. Sometimes I feel like I am a little misguided or wondering blind trying to figure out where I am going…let alone finding the right road to drive down.
That situation helps bring out my rants when I am in a state of “WTF?!?!” [What The F**k – for the uninitiated].
So the question(s) this weekend were about destiny and fate. Do you write your own book of life or is it written for you? Maybe there are just chapters with subject or topic headings, but we fill in the white space. Is it possible to write your own future? Maybe, but only if you skip a few details and focus on the concept of your future. It seems that the more specific we are about wanting something in life the more frustrated we can get when our dream becomes reality, but there is just one or two things missing…almost as if “well that was great!! However, it was a little better in my dream.” No one needs a let down when a dream becomes reality; we should embrace the moment.
So how do you choose (remember it always comes back to choice!) what dreams to follow and what ones to let go? After all there is much to be gained from the quote “Be careful what you wish for.” Many might say that you don’t have to be as careful in what you dream of; but why? Dreams and wishes can intertwine and mold one another. Don’t get me wrong I think we should all dream big and follow our dreams; I am just asking when it’s okay to throw caution to the wind and where we need to ground ourselves. Is it subjective? Meaning either on a case by case dream/wish or even on a case by case deal with a person…some people can handle just going for the gold and others need to be more grounded.
What power can be gained or lost by following our hearts, dreams and wishes?
