On the verge

Do you ever feel like you are on the verge of greatness? Do you ever feel like in the next moment you are going to have the BEST idea ever?

I must say that I feel this way very often. It often comes to me when I am driving. I feel wonderful feelings and happiness. I feel like my ideas could really help someone or change something. I feel that my ideas could be the answer to what people are searching for. It really is a strange thing to think, because honestly I am just an average person.

So, I never actually get to that point where I think "this IS it." But I feel like I am constantly or should I say quite frequently, "on the verge" of an idea that could potentially change the world. Wow!

I'll let you know if I ever get to THE idea. And please let me know in the comments if you ever feel that way or if you think I'm crazy or if you just want to say something.

Hope you have a fantastic day!

As that Byrds song goes, to everything there is a season.

I believe that everything has a purpose. I believe that out of every bad situation, at least one good thing comes out of it. I believe that faith and hope do carry you through. I believe that talking about how it should be and how it really is when you are going through it are two different things. I believe that envisioning your dreams and believing in them will help them to come true. I believe that honesty with yourself and others helps to build bridges of understanding. I believe that we are all connected; every living and non-living thing. I believe the world is mostly beautiful. I believe in the power of love.

Lately, I've been feeling chaotic in my head. I've felt on edge and emotional. I've been short with people and just not feeling myself. I have felt disgusted, like I am being someone that isn't me. I've tried to figure it out but keep running circles. Then last night when I was at work, taking care of brave, young, courageous patients...I thought...."dang, I've been having a "poor me" kind of attitude. Immediately when I pinpointed it, I started to make sense of many things. I feel that something is awakening in me. I am going through a change. Change can often be uncomfortable. For now, I am living with the questions themselves. What's next? Who am I? Where am I going? What do I really want?
