Gas prices are at an all time high, which will soon mean that food prices will follow close behind. Rents are already skyrocketing. Our leaders have ridden this flaming zeppelin to the ground, looking at nothing but their own pockets. Things aren’t looking so good right now.
So, I’ve been pretty much homestuck for the last couple weeks. I went on a hike the other day, but even the 20 mile round trip is a little bit of an ouch when it comes to leaving the house, because I know that is gas I should be keeping in the tank.
When you are home all the time, you tend to ruminate. You are in a closed room situation and the only thoughts coming into your head probably came from your head. Garbage in. Garbage out. It’s moments like this that we need to open a window in our psyches and let in some fresh air.
So, today, I took a leap of faith. I did something that scared the hell out of me. For the first time in a long while, I made plans. Now it is just a matter of following through with them. Being resourceful. And hitting that learning curve which looks a lot like a wall right now.
Once I activated that mode again, I felt like this is the kind of stuff I love to do. These sorts of challenges are right up my alley, rather than just sitting in the relative safety of my house. This small change has been what I’ve needed for a while. I see so many different things opening up for me too. New experiences. Feeding my curiosity. Doing and seeing some cool shit.
Sorta like the motto of Life Magazine from The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.
What is this project? More to come later.
I used to daydream more. Now I have something to daydream about. A probability instead of a possibility. It feels really good to daydream again.
