I didn’t think it was possible to learn a lesson from today,
because most of it was spent under the covers of my bed watching television episodes that I missed four weeks ago.
But while lying around today, it did allow me to just… think for a little bit.
And by think, I mean freak out.
If I told you that I have perfected the fine art of relaxing, that would be a lie.
For a busy body like me, laying around is all I want to do…
…but it’s impossible once I’m doing it.
I had a smug grin on my face for the first two hours, then I started getting anxiety thinking of all the things I wasn’t doing.
While flipping through the mess that is my brain—rummaging through all the things I “need” to do, “have” to do, and want to do—I realized this.
I am never not moving. Even if I am physically still, my mind is still going. I don’t know whether this is a good or bad thing, but I do know this—that it keeps me inspired. I am always onto the next big thing; the newest project. I am always flipping through magazines, scrolling through sites, conjuring up ideas of what I’ll do next. What I want to do in the future, what I want build or make or do or accomplish or where I want to go. I take what I see and I make notes and lists and keep journals in my drawers and folders on my desktop.
While I sometimes get overwhelmed by all of the wonder in this world—I have learned that this is what will keep you going.
Staying inspired is the essence of life. Realize that not all of it will get done, and not all of it will get done right away. That’s lesson one, and maybe the most important lesson. But lesson two, is to keep striving towards that wonder, and never stop.
Never stop plotting, or scheming.
Never stop creating your future.
Scheme your life away. Keep taking steps into your future, and never stop dreaming. That’s how we survive. That’s how we survive with a smile on our face, and fire in our hearts.
