I can’t get my thoughts out right now. They just won’t flow. I can see them and they make sense in my mind, but when I sit down to write, a traffic jam of words backs up on the interchange from my thoughts to my fingers. I am going to switch gears from my original topic in order to unclog the flow.
A few months back, I challenged myself to write more. To be straight up, I haven’t executed on that challenge the way I expected myself to. Originally, I thought that I would set aside more time to write here—on my personal blog. I have put up a few things but nothing near the volume I intended.
Mission failed on that front.
However, my volume of writing has increase just about everywhere else (work wise). Maybe that’s a better adaptation of the challenge because I need to execute at a rapid pace if I want to accomplish all that I have set out to do.
I want to build something great.
That’s a big thought. But I am not afraid of it. It’s what I was built to do. I know it. It’s actually a relief to admit it. I’ve known I wanted to do big things since I was a kid. I was on the field at Trinity Christian School when I first believed I could do something big in football. I didn’t set any collegiate records but I proved—to myself—that the things that I desired were attainable. With the recent history of past accomplishments bookmarked in my mind, I’m taking another swing at a dream, but this time I am going to make full contact and knock it into orbit.
This time will be different. Along this road will be ups, downs, failures, successes and everything in between. I want to be sure to experience all of it. To not rush through one bit of it. Because while I am chasing my dreams, life is also taking place. I don’t want to miss out on either.
I’ve been saying Enjoy the Adventure for a while now, but I think it’s finally starting to sink in.
P.S. If you read my blogs, feel free to leave comments. I always wonder if anyone reads these things. If not, it’s cool. I’ll keep rowing along.
