Some times … I can sympathize with animals in captivity.
(Side note – you all should watch Black Fish. It’s a great documentary about Sea World.)
What I mean is that some times I feel caged and trapped.
Since having entered ‘Corporate America’ almost 6 years ago (I couldn't get a teaching job), it’s been a growing energy that increases with each passing week. While I appreciate my ‘day job’ and all that it gives me (especially the paycheck part), it’s just not my cup of tea. I work for a great company, with even GREATER people and if ‘Corporate America’ is your thing, you should come on over here and work...
... but when your spirit is wild, it’s like a cage.
(Another side note - I'm really not that wild, just a little non-conformist-free spirit kind of wild...)
The challenge for me is this: to live in the moment. When your ultimate desire is be home with family, running a business wild and free, it can become consuming.
This year I am trying very hard to focus on being in the moment, no matter where I am. I believe that God has things to show us and teach us in every situation if only we’d listen a little harder.
So as I try to ::patiently:: wait for the day when I’m released from my metaphorical cage, I will also strive to be in the moment.
For now, the view isn't so bad from my 'cage'.
