The CHAngE


The hardest thing about changing the direction you’re headed is that virtually no one wants you to.  Even those you don’t know want to solely define you on where you’ve been.  

I have an assigned box.  
You have an assigned box.  
Exchanging boxes is…
frowned upon.

I stand at the top of the hill. 
It’s a midlife crisis without the fancy car.  
My retreating youth lay behind and an unknown future lies ahead.  
I seriously wonder if I can get there from here. 

‘cause I want a new box.

A very good friend of mine shared this with me. I'm sharing it with you.

There is the true joy of life; to be used by a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; to be thoroughly worn out before being thrown on the scrap heap; to be a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that life will not devote itself to making you happy. --George Bernard Shaw

funny that the word verification on your blog right now is: unoan which sounds like unknown to me, but is far more interesting than what unknown sounds like. to me unoan is far more worth exploring, and has no derivation of the word known. it just is...unoan.

Love the word verification! There's something more to be explored in this newly defined word.
