I have been asking myself what I am all about lately.
I mean the really thought-provoking, deep and interpersonal look-inside-your soul kind of “about.”
I had a friend on Facebook throw out the question this past week, “What did you learn in 2013?”
I am sad to say that I have yet to come up with an answer.
I know I learned “stuff,” like how to write a blog post and post html-affiliate links, etc., but I haven’t come up with the deep, meaningful, life-changing new learned thing. I know it doesn’t have to be that. I KNOW. But it’s there. I HAD TO LEARN SOMETHING LAST YEAR, right?
Explore. Dream. Discover.
There’s a page on this blog called “About Me.” It gives an overview of me, and asks that if you want to know more, check out my first post. Ya, ya, ya, but what I am about? Really?
When I thought of writing this post, it started out being about dreaming about the future. Looking up a “dream quote” on the internet, I chose one that was highly rated and meant something to me. The photo attached to the quote is a picture I took of a ground squirrel, who literally looked like he was day-dreaming while sitting on a post on a heavily used walkway overlooking a piece of the California coast. He was sitting there, not afraid, not making any noises, not trying to be noticed in any way. It seems silly, but it was like the squirrel was dreaming. (I know you might be smiling right about now, but go with me on it.)
I AM sitting at a computer staring at a photo of a squirrel on a post overlooking the coast, not trying to be noticed, not afraid, not making any noises (except the obvious typing,) trying to explore my inner self. Dreaming of what this blog could be and what I can do next. I need to discover my priorities, even now!
Seriously, the analogies could be endless.
That’s what I’m thinking right now. I hope it got you thinking too.
