FulLife Crisis? Or not...

FulLife crisis?

I am not going through a midlife crisis.

I’m going through a FulLIfe crisis.

My life is so full of stuff.

My life is so full of people.

My life is so full of projects and plans for even more projects.

My life is full of work and chores.

My life is full of loved ones and friends…


My life is about to explode if it gets any fuller… and yet….

I like a full life…

I chose a full life…

Perhaps this crisis…

Is not about my life being full…

But rather what it is filled with…

And therefore

I won’t pretend I’ll be a minimalist

Even through I’m tempted to

But that would just be another project

And I have enough of those


I’ll just focus on removing one thing/person/project/idea a day/week/month

That doesn’t serve me

Knowing my life will quickly fill the space

Left behind

But this time

I’ll be careful

To fill it

With more of what I want to have in it.

A FulLIfe

What could be better?

It doesn't need to be perfect

Nearly a year and a half since I've posted and I might still not be posting had a great friend (thanks Kira) not reminded me that I needn't wait until I figure out exactly what this blog will be about, or what I will write in the next 100 or so posts... and it struck me... it doesn't need to be perfect.

So, I will write this post and hope it reminds me as I move forward, to post when I have something to share, to write because I love to, and most of all, not to wait until I have it all figured out ('cause we'll all be waiting for a while then!:o)

So here it is in all it's imperfect glory... making it rather hard to avoid the question ' what else have I been avoiding doing becuase I haven't quite figured it all out?' I'm sure the list will be long enough to spark some more ideas for posts... I mean posts!
