When Fate Seems Absurd ~ SPC

I never wanted to be a rock star
but I always wanted to be cool
not(everyone else)cool
my own kind of cool.
I was willing to take a chance.
You know what? That's really hard to do?
You have to shuck some family expectations
and blaze a few trails, do something different,
maybe even, strange in the eyes of others.
It's a song that only you can hear.
You may find others who's song uses the same notes,
but yours is still different and special only to you.
When we get older, we realize that being different
comes and goes. There is a time and a place for it.
So, in the meantime, continue to love the serious You.
If she is encouraged...she'll come out and play :)

I'm actually a nerd at heart...does it show that bad?

Frankly, I knew you were a nerd at heart if you mean a serious and sort of other worldly person. I think the thing that surprises me most about anyone is how little they realize how wonderful they are. And that includes you and me. Sigh!

Oh Grand Cool one, I hold you in very high esteem. Frankly, I would never consider you a nerd. To me, you are more of a free spirit. You are learning to live in the now, and that is something I am struggling with. I do believe the struggle is getting easier.

Whenever I want the playful part of me to emerge, I find like spirits, they are usually children. What a joy.

Giving up the ego is most difficult, but I do believe it will be better for me in the long run.

I am sure you will enjoy Tolle's book, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose. I have it in front of me now and plan to begin making notes for future postings.

"Nerd" is not a word I would ever use to describe you. Loved the stream of conciousness.

As always, you rock.

Yes, I saw those shoes a couple weeks ago and totally love them.
I haven't seen any other new shoe designs from a new designer that have intrigued me like those.
