So the last post was all about perhaps going the easy road in this life. Rolling with the punches. As Pocahontas’s father said, “Be steady as the beating drum”
To read it, check out the link:
And I think thats important, and I agree I shouldn’t let problems get into my head so much and perhaps Im high strung….ugh….ok yeah I’m super high strung.
But here’s the deal:
I was never really like Pocahontas’s dad. I was always more like Pocahontas. My compass never pointed in one direction. I never had the same dreams and interests as other people. My river was always running over rapids, never still and calm like Lake Placid.
I want adventure.
I want love.
I want happiness.
I want my voice to be heard in this world.
I want to tell people the need to be better because society is going down the shithole and fast!
AND MOST IMPORTANTLY…. NO. THAT PATH DEFINITELY WILL NOT BE THE EASY OR STEADY ONE. NOR THE ONE THAT PEOPLE WILL UNDERSTAND OR SUPPORT.
So what to do?
Should we sail steady and smooth? Treading lightly and going for the lighter side of life like Pocahontas’s father?
Or should we be like Pocahontas? And jump?
Jump for what though? That is the scary part isn’t it? For adventure? For a better life? Or to our death?
Thats the risk with jumping I suppose…. but can you really live a life without ever taking a risk?
I’d hate to put ideas in your mind….but I think I like jumping
