If I’ve learned anything in my 26 years on this pale blue dot it’s that I am a big dreamer. The problem with that though is that I am a dreamer but not really a doer. To be fair that statement is only half true because there have definitely been things I’ve wanted to do and I’ve made them happen but I think in the grand scheme of my life I’m a dreamer all the way. There are a lot of times that I find myself thinking “wouldn’t this be cool?” or “I should do that” and then I never do.
There’s a line in a song called The Adventure by Angels and Airwaves (AvA) that says, “Life’s waiting to begin.” I have a long, long history with AvA but that’s a story for another day. That song in particular though came out in 2006 as their first single so obviously I’ve been on quite the ride with that song over the past 10 years. It’s always meant different things to me at different points.
That one line though has always been one I struggle with knowing how to perceive it. In so many ways I know that life isn’t waiting to begin. It’s already happening no matter if I’m dreaming or if I’m going out and doing the things I’ve been dreaming about. There is not pause button, there’s no waiting. On the other hand though maybe there is. Life in the scientific term of it obviously doesn’t have a pause button and it’s still happening but when you look at life, your life, in the big picture maybe it is waiting. Because there is so much out there just waiting for you. You have to be the one to start somewhere though. The life you want, the life that’s waiting, it won’t just happen and that I know for a fact.
So here we go, welcome to my little corner of the Internet. I don’t even know exactly what I want this to be or how I am going to get there but I’m just going to wing it and hope for the best. It’s yet to be determined if it will just be population: me or if maybe a few other people will pass through along the way but I hope you might find something you like.
