Joe surprised me with tulips a few days ago. I’ve been watching as they’ve slowly started leaning towards the light from my window. I had no clue that flowers literally reach for the sun. They reach towards what gives them life.
It’s amazing to watch. They don’t take anything they don’t need. They don’t need anything they don’t take. They are simple and beautiful. If flowers could smile, I think they would.
With two great jobs, a wonderful relationship, being a struggling actor, working to become healthier and more fit, a few side projects and wanting to blog frequently, certain things are bound to slip between the cracks. I’ve been trying to prioritize and seeing what is really important to me and it’s tough sometimes. A few of you have sent me messages about feeling the same way, and I think it’s normal.
In today’s day and age, we’re expected to be able to do everything and then some. We’re being pulled in a million different directions every day, especially now. Being in your twenties (or any age really) is terrifying and exhilerating at the same time because there are so many possibilites. You want to do everything, but you fail because you’re trying to do too much. It can become a hopeless, nervous cycle. But it’s ok.
Look at the things that really, truly mean something to you, and keep them close. Get rid of the rest. Reach for what gives you life.
