That was not the shocking part. The shocking part was that a little voice in the back of my head was whispering, “At least they did something.” Sure it was something stupid, selfish, and illegal, but still it was something. They acted. They were bold. They make great movie characters because they took a risk. Instead of sitting on Facebook whining about their entry-level jobs, or the economy, or increasing the dent in their sofa cushions, they went out and lived their lives.
Still, there’s something about the Summer… the extra daylight, the warm heat radiating off of the sidewalk, that makes me feel like there’s more energy in the world to be harnessed. More possibility. More time. I honestly don’t know what I should be doing. Maybe that’s 95% of the battle. You hear about all of these successful people and it all started with an idea they were passionate about. A nagging voice they couldn’t ignore. My nagging voice tells me to eat chocolate. My nagging voice tells me that I have something to contribute, I just don’t know what it is yet.
