maybe life is just an endless quest without knowing what our quest is ...

I have been advised by hubs

(yes, more than once)

that the cereal dust at the bottom of the box is not a good enough dinner for us.

And I would agree that it probably lacks vitamins and minerals

(unless some of the stuff the cereal company has sprayed onto the raisin bran in the raisin bran factory has managed to dislodge itself from the plastic bag and glob onto the crumbs on their way into our mouths)

But faced with the possibility of face-planting myself on a hot stove - it's all I have the energy for.

I know you are thinking, but Cat, you just had a vacation remember, a beach vacation with sun and fun and a freakin' GOLF CART - you have only been back from vacation for exactly 22 seconds, so why all the whining ...

(and if you are thinking this, you probably do not know me as well as you think you do)

I have no explanation.

I am going to take a catnap and try to put some sensible words together tonight (as well as possibly a dinner that does not include sugar coated raisins).

In the meantime I will admit I stole my title from this insanely intelligent 9 year old boy - if you missed this somehow it is certainly better than anything I could say right now and definitely worth a listen.

This kid had me crying half way in Cat, I don't know how you stumbled across this video, but thank you for sharing. I think sometimes I get so caught up in finding my purpose, (maybe we all do) that it's hard to just step back and do what makes us happy - one day at a time - and... there's nothing wrong with needing a vacation from your vacation. I know I usually do. :) Meditate, breathe, relax, garden, walk, cook, do whatever you feel like doing that restores your balance... and don't stress out about it. Okay?! :D

Yes, Janell! And I know that the only way we are going to create a world where we all get to do what makes us happy is by doing what makes us happy - sigh ... I also want to kidnap this kid (just for an afternoon - I'll even give him ice cream) and get him to explain everything else to me .... xo

Yes! Please do! I would like to sit in on this visit, I'm flying over (in my golf cart with wings!!)

I am just so happy I read this this morning...oh that kid! I'm off to Camp Bravehearts with the meaning of life...and can we ask him about balance? I need the answers to that one. I'll chip in for ice cream.
