Holy cow. I cannot tell you how badly I want this:
I often find myself sitting in class thinking, "What's the point?" I'm certainly not a slacker and I wouldn't just check out and get D's just to scrape by and graduate already, but I'd be lying if I didn't admit that I am often tempted!
And it's not school that is the problem, but it's the knowledge that something is out there... something big. No, I don't have a job nailed down yet, but even in the search I've learned something about myself.
I've been offered several positions around Nashville and, surprisingly, I've turned several of them down--not because they weren't good jobs, but for some reason I feel like I was meant for more than they offered. I'm learning that, for me a least, taking the "easy" path just really isn't an option. For me a least, sitting behind a desk working for a company I couldn't care less about just isn't an option.
I want to write, I want to love, and I want to make a difference in this world: both is my personal AND in my professional life. Unfortunately, I'm finding that that isn't as easy to do as I would have liked (well, maybe it's easy, but it's not easy to do those and pay for your rent...) but the more I search and the more I live, the more I'm starting to agree with Ms. Keller when she said:
"Security is mostly a superstition... Life is either a daring adventure or nothing" -Helen Keller
Take care friends. Don't let today be ordinary in the name of "security." Take a chance today. Be daring. Have an adventure. Be everything you were created to be.
