half here   Leave a comment

in the movie “Shawshank Redemption”  one of the lines Morgan Freeman says is “Get busy living, or get busy dying”

sometimes that line haunts me.
sometimes I feel like I am living half a life

and it isn’t so much that I am missing out on the good things in life, that isn’t it at all.
I have the good things in life.
I just mean I feel half fulfilled.
like I am not up to my full potential.

I think of going back to school and then I think who would hire a 52-year-old (which is how old I would be after I finished college, providing I got started right away)

I don’t have a lot of confidence in myself, I know.
I have been told before that I am my own worst critic.
And I don’t think it is that as much as I am being realistic.

I might not be the brightest crayon in the box, but I do think I know a thing or two……..

I sometimes feel like this picture

  that I’m here but I blend in so well, that if you aren’t really looking, you won’t see me.

Don’t get me wrong, I am not depressed, I am just feeling thoughtful today…….
