“There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.” –Buddha
“When I grow up, I’m going to be a rockstar.” How many times did I say that? I think a billion, at least. And last month, I gave up.
It was because I realized that my health at that moment didn’t really line up with “good for performances,” but with an additional 75mg of Topamax in my system daily, I’m having far fewer seizures. It leads me to wondering if I took that road to truth all the way, or if I did just give myself the hard look in the mirror that said, “You don’t have what it takes right now.”
There’s another quote I considered using today.
“I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.” ― F. Scott Fitzgerald
I’m in a weird place in life right now. It’s the first time I’m directionless. I’m still practicing instruments because it brings me joy. I’m still housewifing because, well, I’m home, and I’m a wife. But I have no immediate goals other than to be healthy and happy.
And for me, I guess that is starting over.
