What are we up to?

What are you up to?

Do you ever stop to ask yourself this question?

We go through our days so quickly – we’re always so busy - preoccupied with the tiny pieces around the edges of our puzzles.

Do you ever take a step back and look at what you’re creating? Is it a scene you’re happy with? Are the pieces you’re putting together getting you to the big picture?

I do myself a favor and never really know what I’m up to. This allows me to be open and listen to my surroundings.

What’s next?

I have an idea, but I’m not in the daily business of finding out.

I toss out the pieces of the puzzle and gauge my days based on their own merit. I let the clues each day lead me to who I’m going to be and am becoming.

Is the next step you take the one that glides you into the warm embrace of your destiny? Probably not, so don't treat every little thing you do with such tediousness that you forget to have some damn fun. 

Like the faint smell of a cherry pie on a window ledge, I’m following the scent of where the future will take me, instead of toiling with fitting all the little pieces together.
