Sometimes there is just too much information. Too many options. Too many opinions to consider. The overload of data sends the synopsis of my brain into a chaotic freeway of sorts. Soon the stimulus becomes overwhelming and I simply swell from the electrical traffic jam occurring inside of me. Would someone just wring me out please?
It's delightful to feel as though you have come to a solid conclusion regarding a new and different career path. You've taken into consideration the economy, your interests, your life's mission and contemplated income and time requirements. Determining the cost for education and the pay off at its completion, you arrive at a decision; an actual decision! Then you step out to gather more data and opinions from the pros. OUCH! The market is flooded with new graduates! What now? Full of enthusiasm to mask my overloaded neuron pathways, I was just about to turn onto the freeway of societal norm; an accepted road to financial security.
Is this the universe telling me to stop? Am I being guided back to my original far-fetched plans? Is someone telling me to quit being practical and stop thinking about the paycheck and tradition? Am I to once again, float off into a creative world of make believe and attempt to entertain others as I carry them along with me?
When in doubt, shift gears and clean house! Squeeze out some of the dirty water and improve your living environment in the process.
Questioning this week's practical conclusions in terms of career, I am once again at square one. Do I want it that bad? Can I compete with a flooded market? Of course I can. I am ingenious, to say the least.
Today I ran into some unexpected road construction. I can sit through it, along with the rest of the commutors, or take the nearest exit off the freeway of tradition and come up with an idea for a detour and once again go about creating my own path. Better yet, set my signal and let my heart guide me the rest of the way.
Somehow there is a discovery I have yet to make. Something new, something I never could have dreamed of. I'm turning off onto a dirt road now; one that no one ever dares to drive on. I wonder what I will find......................
