“Do you ever worry that you will run out of things to write about?”
When I was asked this question, it sparked a firestorm of emotion. I felt a bit sad that someone would feel that this could happen, elated that I know that it won’t, and grateful that I live a life which revolves around awareness and adrenaline.
The answer is an emphatic,
No, I will not run out of words.
I worry about all sorts of stupid stuff. I worry about every imaginable worst case scenario which I can possibly place myself. I worry about the worst possible things, mostly of which are impossible, that will happen to me. I worry about my present which is based on my past, and I create a scary story about the future. No one has a more ridiculous pattern of worry than I do. However…..
I don’t worry about running out of words.
If I am sober, I have optimism. Where there is optimism, there is awareness. With awareness comes gratitude, and gratitude leaves you with the knowledge that we live in a world of abundance.
Abundance requires no reserve. There is no need to save your best for last, because you are getting better all the time. Use your best right now as tool for finding that which is greater. Even if your best is really bad, which it will most likely be if you have no experience, and keep getting better at your best.
We will never run out of words to write, emotions to feel, music to write, songs to sing, feats to accomplish, fun to be had, experiences to enjoy. We will, however, run out of time. Death eludes no one. It would be a tragedy to save your best because of the delusion that you have a tomorrow.
Saving your “best” for any amount of time is really delaying the better, which will lead to your best….which will only get better.
Have some fun today.
Peace, Love, and all things Beef related,
