I think that I found this quote so incredibly profound because I have developed this habit of over dramatizing things that I’m going through. In reality, when we step back and look at what we are doing in our lives, it’s all just an experience to enhance our own existence. No one is making us do the things that we are doing; we choose to do them. And then, at least in my case, I choose to stress out and be miserable while I am doing the things that I say I WANT to do in the first place.
Am I making any sense? Sometimes I feel like I am talking in circles.
THERE I GO AGAIN… over dramatizing and over-complicating things so that I am confused, stressed out and overwhelmed. I even do it with this blog. I spin around in circles trying to say things that are interesting and profound, when really the whole point of this thing is just to express my ideas and hear what you all think as well. Maybe some of you are laughing at the silliness of my pontification right now!
I’ll laugh with you. HA HA HA
Ok… So, I need to remind myself that everything is a comedy and, if I want, I can cut out the time I spend freaking out and make all “tragedy” comedy now. I just need to pull my head out of my bum and stop bringing the drama home from work.
Tom Welling said something beautifully enlightening to me the other day at work. He said, “In the end, Allison, it is everything and it is nothing. It is all just for the experience,” and at that moment, on the Kent Farm, with a man dressed in a silver body-suit flying behind us, I really understood what he was saying to me. And… started laughing! Every moment is about *that* moment, not about the next one I am going to live and not about the ones I just finished living. So I just need to enjoy the ride!
Like they always say “life is a journey”, I want my to be a fuckin’ fun one!
Ciao for this week and thanks for you patience!
