@29 Expanding the Bubble.

I had alot of coffee and thoughts on the mind this morning, I just needed to get out in a creative way, so here it goes.
The goals that most people select for themselves, usually coincide with a large node in their life. Like 18, 25, 30 maybe a decade increment or even by a first child or marriage, or for those more morbidly inclined a death of a parent. whatever your parameters are its what works for you.
For me it was 10 years from the start of my cooking apprenticeship, which just happens to coincide with my Birthday. Today is that day “29” it is actually a marker I have set for a future node 1 year in advance.
I had given my self sort of a wake up timer, 1 year prior to my main goal “reflection, review, change, implementation circuit”. As a last ditch effort to jump start my transmission, off or on to which ever path I might have strayed or fell upon. so today marks the 365 day revolution tell that step.
Its funny in the past few weeks I had a recent epiphany, that no matter how stable my career is. I might want to start taking those urges of yearning for life’s accessories not of my own station, and put them to good use. For example I recently started drawing again, as sad as I am that I had stopped nearly 10 years from this date. I started up a red bubble account and being a big fan of shirts started to design as a hobby at least for now. This hobby might transmute into something else ahead of now. but haven’t quit the day job quite yet. and most likely never will.
There are so many endeavours and adventures to partake in and experience in life that I have yet to. At nearly thirty the window is not quite as open as it once was at 18, but glass does break.
Many of you can relate to this, that sometimes we settle for solidarity happiness and comfort as a means to sustain and survive, as well as to keep a roof over our heads.
Enter Dilemna:
Than an impulse almost beating like the heart in your chest takes hold of you by repetition, slowly entering mind one thought at a time over a period of the chronos. Where could my life go? what have I not done that I am passionate about? What do I love and enjoy and need to still take up? I was good at such and such, what if I try to develop that? where could my life go? What if I meet someone through that, and my life changes its course? the more you listen to this the less you realise you are content at what you’ve worked hard at to make the bubble that you now exist with in.
Never looking upon our selves with a microscope, with the power of a jury prodding you form the outside looking in about the choices made, and the city noise we have settled for. Is our biggest down fall and if you don’t ask these question, or push your self into he dynamo the Bubble will never grow for you.
In conclusion I entice all of you to try something new as often as possible and keep your mind open, with the ability to ask a wide vollied array of questions regardless of the reciprocity involved. and to take those whose bubbles yours has touched with you in your journey. With this in mind, life will flow for you like the morning cream into your coffee.
A toast to expanding a bubble worth pushing. I write this in hopes my bubble will merge with the millions of permutations of the: the, yours, his, hers, theirs, them, we bubbles out there and become the foam like web of Life’s expanse.

-It might be enough to be content, but it will never be enough to grow.

Next entry to this same time next year.
