It could be said that everyone in some senses walks their own path. The problem is that many paths we walk have been walked by others we are just walking them anew for ourselves. It takes a rare individual to truly trail blaze a new trail where no one has been before. I think however many of us strive to be this unique but in truth we find ourselves walking places where other have been and only when we have walked all the ones in our field that we get that moment to build on the work of others and find ourselves truly doing something unique. most of us however never quite make it that far.
Recently I have been asking myself the soulful questions about the things that are closest to me. I guess I get reflective a lot in my life and often wonder if I am making progress on the things that matter to me or I am just standing still. That is probably why I write about these things and try to find some perspective as to what I am doing that is truly unique but being mindful that there really is nothing new under the sun. So the rundown for my soul:
Family – things are pretty stable these days as everyone seems to be going well for everyone. Today is my granddaughter’s first birthday and that is kind of milestone even for me. The Girl Named Jane is one and she is fast becoming a person who thinks for herself and I pray her parents as they move forward.
Finances – The one thing that worries me now is the simple fact that I have not been accepted at college yet and it is because my transcripts have not arrived from my other colleges which I asked for in early December is frustrating. It is holding everything up right now and that is bothersome.
Reading – Been looking at how to get more fiction in my reading cycle and not coming up with good answers other than to create another blog post to be a fiction book review once a week to make sure I read fiction more but that has not always been successful. Non-fiction reading gets done in large part in relation to a lot of things I write on this blog and it has caused me to read more. Fiction however is less cerebral and more emotional so I have to find something that works for that.
Writing – Blogging every day and for the most part on time. I will be short today by one post because I am still reading for the next post and it probably won’t be done until tomorrow. My book needs some plan of action and I have been poking at it but I think my outline needs to be polished. That of course leads to me looking down the road to publication which I need very desperately.
All in all it is waiting on some things or writing to keep busy. However, I really want to get going on the school thing but it might be already sabotaged because of bureaucrats and I really hate that. At the same time I am hoping that school with my transcripts will mean only couple years in school. Time to see if there is a unique path to blaze regardless.
Blessings and Cheers!!!
