This is one really struck home for me.
Over the years I have had several dreams that I didn't pursue for any number of reasons. I've put off dreams and desires for so long that I'm not sure I can get really get passionate about anything anymore. After a few TED Talks I was ready to start exploring again.
I went to Stamp Camp with a friend. It was the usual casual fun. My cards, of course, look nothing like they were intended to, but I didn't care. I really do have my own drummer and he does his own thing.
On the way home we got to talking. I both love and hate talking to her. She easy to talk to. Too easy. And I end up spilling more than I mean too. By the end of the conversation I remembered the very real reasons that don't pursue my passions. Maybe one day it will sort itself out, as it's not something I can sort out on my own. Not without making some major changes that I'm not comfortable making.
Some days life sucks.
