Literally Stopping to Smell the Flowers

Lately has been somewhat crazy. I'm working on some freelance stuff while trying to build a portfolio, cool stuff is coming down the pipeline. Its just a strange place to be. I'm doing quite okay with most things right now, yesterday was somewhat different. After the Lent service, I started thinking about my work, and what I've done with my life so far. I asked myself a few questions like, "am I proud of the work I've done?"

I mean, existential crisis are somewhat of a normal thing for me nowadays. I contemplated a few more things as I worked from the park yesterday. I feel busy at times, and sometimes, not busy enough. I don't really know how I will make ends meet at times, and sometimes I have great ideas that I do want to purse. Money is a horrible issue. Then I just continued to work.

On my way back to my car, I stopped. I knelt near these flowers just to touch them, smell them. They didn't smell like anything, I took a deep breath... everything is going to be okay.


Its time to keep working.
