“I will…”: 2 months late”

journey111th of an 11 part series

This is the final part in a series. I should have written it two months ago and have already violated the commitment I made to write daily. That said, better late than never, right?

We’ve all heard the question before. “If money were no object and you knew you couldn’t fail what would you do?” The idea is that however we answer that question will give some insight into what you dream about doing. I would take it a step further and say that how you answer that question might give you a clue as to why you were put on earth. Who wouldn’t want to commit their life to pursuing what they were created for?

I’m a dreamer. There are a lot of things I think about doing and wonder what it would life would look like if I were able to them with abandon. Whether or not I achieve those things or not isn’t not nearly as important to me as the effort spent trying. Too often I obsess about my endgame and forget about what it will take to get there.

Ralph Waldo Emerson said “life is a journey, not a destination.” If that’s true, then life is something to savored, every moment taken in fully. Life is an unending, never static, sensory-driven experience.

At heart I’m a nomad trekking through life as though it were a long-term endeavor, experiencing what I can and taking in the sights and sounds as I go.

Life can only be as big as your dreams. Think about that.
