Have you “made it”?
Maybe you’ve “arrived”.
I haven’t. I don’t think I ever will.
This used to trouble me. It doesn’t trouble me that much anymore.
The shift feels liberating. I feel grateful for it.
The dream pushers push the dream
. The dream has an end-state. You reach it when you’ve “made it” or “arrived”.
Just rolling with it has no end-state. There’s no making anything or arriving anywhere. We just keep rolling along.
The past 6+ months felt hopeful. I found myself starting to become comfortable. I started feeling like I “arrived”, at least a little bit.
I began catching myself. On one hand, I’ve learned it’s OK for things to feel OK
. At the same time, I’ve also learned that suffering happens when I start grasping for that OK feeling and trying to make it solid
I’m writing this as a reminder to myself. I hope you find it beneficial too.
It’s been said many, many times, that “life’s the destination” or something like that ;) While I usually recoil at the statement’s overuse, I believe it’s also true.
That’s why I’m reminding myself that there’s no end to Just Rolling with It. Just rolling with it’s the journey. I feel grateful to be rolling on it. I actually don’t want to arrive anymore. The journey’s where it’s at.
My gratitude to each of you for joining me on it _/|\_
