Just out of reach....

Monday, March 08, 2010

Have you ever had the "That's It, that's how it works" or "Yes, I understand" or any of those other revelations that change your life. The thing that turns on the light bulb and you feel accomplished, directed, orientated, or (insert some other motivational word here).

Well, I have the feeling that, that moment is right in front of me, but I have no idea what it is, or where it will take me, or if it is really there. I have "glimpses" of something, have dreams that I wake up from recharged, and excited, but when I try to remember what it is, I am blank.

I feel like a horse with the apple being dangled in front of me. It is so... what's the word... It is just right there.

So to make this story even longer... Amy and I have started a new budget system (Dave Ramsey), we have started cleaning / selling stuff around the house, working with the kids to help them plan for the future, working on the house, .... so we have lots of projects going all (and all of them are good, and moving forward), so they are all great and positive, and I am excited to see all of them moving forward. I don't feel like there is anything lacking in my life. My job is fun, I like the work, I don't dread going to work. I am so in love with my wife, and kids are wonderful (well most of the time). So I am not looking for anything.

So it confuses me even more why i feel like there is something just right there, something that will make a life changing moment, when I am not looking for or feel like I need anything.

OK, enough rambling, to those who have read this far, thanks for listening to my rambling.

    This isn't rambling. I get it - you have a deep desire to "level up" in life. When you look around all the basics are there and doing well, but there is another inner voice driving. So here are some questions for you:

    When is the last time you have a really good belly laugh?
    When is the last time that you did sometime that wasn't publically acknowledged, but made you feel like "I'm a super person"?
    When is the last time that you took two hours in complete silence to listen to your inner mind sort itself out?
    When is the last time you looked in the mirror at yourself and gave yourself a talk about all the things you like about yourself?

    What does accomplished, directed, orientated and motivated mean to you and when was the last time that you felt you have one of these road bumps?

    Is it time to take up a new hobby, interest, spiritual quest?

    I think within these question you will be able to form some of your own. You are an amazing support person here on Spark - maybe time to turn some of that energy back into yourself!

    Hooray for positive projects! Maybe you are just really excited about the budget and other projects going on and that's causing you to feel like something is "just out of reach." Perhaps you are just really excited to see it all come to fruition. Either way, I'm glad everything is positive for you!

    This is a very interesting blog. Maybe something really great is going to happen. You just never know what life throws at you. You're doing great things and when you do great things, usually great things happen. Wait and see what the surprise is.
