You're Here On Purpose. (And you can't screw it up.)

You. Me. Everyone and everything... here on purpose. 

That's what I've felt and believed ever since I can remember.

I hear people talk about how you can be "off" purpose or that somehow you can do your life wrong.

And every time I hear it, I know it's not true.

I don't know how I know it. But I know it.

And it's not that I never spin out with worry about whether I'm doing my life "right"... the mind generates worry, and I can be a worrier.

It's that I always come back to that deep touchstone inside that just KNOWS I cannot mess this up, even if my mind likes to spin scary stories.

Just For Fun? YES.


All my deeper interests over the years have been killed off by the push or the implicit pressure to make them into something.

Singing, Making Art, Building Things, Horseback-riding, Playing Piano, Playing Guitar, Writing, Making Jewelry. Probably other expressions I never even approached because I knew I would never find myself to be good enough or it would take too long to get good at it or some other measure I figured it would be either too hard or take too long to meet in order to legitimize even starting it.  

Yuck.

Like, actually just being interested in something meant I had to do something with it. 

Other than enjoy it. Just for its own sake. 

If I was ever "good" at something or naturally talented in a given area, I had to "do" something with it. Otherwise, what's the point of having the talent, right? Riiiiiiight??!
