A Lucky Place

If I had to guess, I’d say I’ve spent an extra 2-3 hours facing the screen this month. Between daily writing and trying like mad to keep up with reading posts from the Think Kit community, I’m beginning to feel like I’ve baked my brain with the electromagnetic waves seeping from my laptop.

I’d been thinking off and on throughout the day about this question. If money, time or other commitments were no obstacle, what would I do? I faced a blank screen. For, like, a really long time. Stalled. Empty. Shouldn’t dreaming big be the easiest thing to run with? Think, think, think.

Well, I guess I’d travel more. I’d not get so tired. I’d always have the space for daily making. Is my brain really that taxed that this is all I got?

Maybe it is actually this: as I struggled to choose something big and undoable, I realized that much of what I want out of life is already within my reach. The life I’ve built has grown closer to the one I imagined. I don’t have it all figured out, and I don’t lead some charmed, silver spoon existence. But I’m pretty… content.

This, a lucky place to be.
