If you love to scrape barnacles from the underside of a boat, then that is the life path for you. There is much to be said for this.
It could be that you love to knit. Rock it on with your knitting.
So much the better if we can get paid for what we love to do. But even still… even if we just do it for the enjoyment of the experience… so be it.
But with anything, they put stipulations on this. Let’s say you love to eat chocolate fudge brownies… non-stop. Doing this may be detrimental to your physical well being.
Or say, you really enjoy vodka. But drinking fifth after twenty-fifth of vodka might not be some of your best thinking.
So we differentiate.
Of course there is the other spectrum of this. Sometimes people do things… and it makes us wonder… “Why, oh why, oh why?” Take for instance 90% of the candidates vying for the Republican Nomination for President.” The things that make you go… “hmmmmm.”
But. Perhaps we should not judge either. I am sure we all love things to do, that may be totally and completely unique to ourselves.
For me, it is watching reruns of Captain Kangaroo, while hopping around the living room on one foot. But that’s beside the point.
We all march to the beat of a different drummer. Except for those who are in a Marching Band…. and then…. they all pretty much march to the beat of the same drummer. But that isn’t the point either.
Dang it. I have forgotten what the point is.
I think what I was trying to say… is that…
We should all find what is in our hearts… and make sure it has room to grow.
Quite simply, we should just find the love… and give it.
Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.
The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself.
