We do the same things all the time, these routines that define us, that label us for all time. If we were to die today they would follow us forever. When was the last time I changed it up? When was the last time I did something different, unique and new just for the sake of saying “I did it”? I know when I was younger I did those kinds of things all the time, because when we’re young we don’t have nearly as many responsibilities, people counting on us, and we stretch more. I admire those who stop doing something successful because it doesn’t fit their definition of success or because it doesn’t fulfill them. I wish I were like them and could stop pushing this same boulder up this same hill and still wish for different results. If I want difference I need to be that change, not just dip my toes in the water but dive in headfirst.
If I still can.
