Flip a coin

Choices.  Yes/No. Here/There. Right/Left. To Be or Not To Be. This/That. These days I have to measure and judge almost everything.  What happened to spontaneity?  When I did things on impulse and figured it out on my way.  I watch my young niece zipping through life and shake my head and I realize it is not so much that she doesn't approach life with caution but more like I have become so overly cautious in my life I wonder how did I get so old? I hear my Mother in my head saying you can't keep burning the candle at both ends!

I need to play more.  Quit trying to balance it all and figure it out before doing anything.  And just do it.  Set aside my worries and concerns and have some fun.  Looks like my ships will still come in.  And if the ships don't come in I will swim out there and get them.

"There are two main drivers in the World.  Love and Fear."

  1. and anger. Which is said to be fear, disguised. I had a hateful dream last night, and have awoken so angry...As soon as it is daylight I need to go for a walk, blow all that hate out of my life.

  2. My perfectionistic side wants to get things sorted and balanced too, before doing anything. Luckily my practical side has gotten more muscular over the years and can shove it aside in order to get some things done (including time for fun!). :)
