...and Focusing Is Better than Letting Life Just Happen

Just got back from my 20th high school reunion and figured something out - I need to whittle my interests down and FOCUS!

So many of my high school buddies went on to do EXACTLY what they said they were going to do at our graduation. Me? I, uh, did a few things - not following through with anything to a huge success.

It's true, I had some lofty ideas that don't really come to fruition for a lot of people, but come on!! As I sat there pondering (well, I was dancing and drinking domestic beer, actually, but I was pondering while I did it) on the success of my friends, I realized I dabble too much. I'm like my daughter in the toy aisle - "Oooh, this looks fun! But this looks better....hmmmm....what about this?" I'm not going to do this anymore and you are my witnesses! Remind me when I get off track that I need to focus, please.

(Also, my rental car was a Ford Focus, so maybe something subliminal was going on, as well. Maybe the Universe is trying to tell me something.)

  1. I figure as long as I'm happy I've succeed. I was much happier in Santa Rosa, but I'm not unhappy here in Yreka... I'm catchin' what your throwin', but also think you could be a little too hard on yourself if you dwell(dabble) on THIS too much.
