Get A Hammer

I am convinced that we, in our day and age, are involved with too many things.
By "too many things" I am referring to things we would rather NOT be involved with.
Busyness can subtly come along and steal large and significant portions of who we are.

Hey, how many lifetimes are you going to live?
My cat may have nine of them, but seriously, I'm pretty sure that you and I as human beings only have one. In this sense, perhaps the most appropriately-named soap opera of all time is One Life To Live.
What is the thing you most like doing?
When is the last time you did that thing?
If there is a great gap between the wanting and the doing, why is that gap there?
Is there anything you can do to remove this barrier erected against your greatest desires?
Take some time to consider what size of hammer is required to smash apart that obstacle between you and the reason you're breathing.
Then -- get that hammer. While you can still swing it.

The gap immediately goes to zero when we realize that the concept of wanting something is not needed at all. Want only what you have right now and you will be in bliss.

Easier said than done, of course.

Hahaha. We do our best.
