Day 138: Life As We Know It

I think that we’ve become so used to living our current lives that we can’t fully comprehend a different type of life….the life that we actually long for deep within ourselves.  So, if you’re like me, sometimes you subconsciously sabotage yourself because there’s some fear of the unknown.  Our life is on a path that we’re comfortable walking down and the life that lies off of that path is difficult to conceive.  Maybe there’s a fear of failure or maybe even success.  I tend to procrastinate and even though I want to be a published author more than I can even express, I find one thing after another with which to waste my time.  I still, to this day, don’t know why that is.  I wonder if they have therapists that deal with conflicted creatives?  I have wondered over the years if this is a common problem amongst us and, if it is…why?  Unlike so many people, we know what our life’s dream is but we won’t let ourselves reach it.  We put other things, other people, other interests, etc…, ahead of that dream.  I think that we really need to do some soul searching and find out why that is.  And we can’t stop until we get the answer because it’s standing in the way of us becoming what we truly desire to be.  Just some random thoughts.
