    Dream House

    I absolutely love this ad. A fun house, a fun life, basically what I am all about. It gets hard sometimes when you are no longer a kid but not yet an adult. There are always a lot of expectation, a lot of waiting and learning how to be patient. Patience is knowing that the best is yet to come and not everything has to happen now. Waiting is something I have never been good at and I have been doing small exercises to help myself understand patience. For example, when I am shopping and waiting to pay – my instincts are to go to the shortest line and look out for the cashier who is just opening up. I shimmy my way over there and pay as soon as possible. The new exercise involved going to a mid size line and waiting patiently. Crazy huh? That is just a small example. In the grand scheme of things, I understand my impatience stems from fear. I am afraid of wasting time, I am afraid of running out of time, I am afraid of being late, being irrelevant and what else? Impatience = belief that time is running out. My mom always says, the time you have on earth has already been allotted. What you have, how much you receive and what your life will be is predestined. She has told me that constantly since I was young. I believe in human agency but I also believe in mistakes. I believe carelessness and rushing causes you more wasted time in the long run. I think being organized is the key of being successful and living an artful, meaningful life will make you happier at the end. I want my dream house, but I don’t want a house if that means it will cost me my dream. Ya dig?

    Live your dream, whatever that may be. Have you seen UP?
