In a conversation with Gary a while back, we talked of what life is all about. He said that life is all about your journey from point A to point B. And I believe that’s true to an extent. We’ve all heard that bit about life being a journey. But there’s more to it than that. I’ve got a different slant.
You can get from point A to point B in any number of ways. Sometimes you can do it according to spec and you can feel good about that. You’ve crossed your t’s and dotted your i’s and your ducks are properly lined up in a nice neat row. But then other times your journey takes the scenic route. You do something that’s magical and everything sparkles. I think that we have an important choice in life, in the way we travel the journey from point A to point B. Our choice boils down to this. Does your journey sparkle or is according to spec? I want more sparkles.
That’s it in a nutshell. I want more sparkles. I’ve endeavored for a life according to spec, and although it feels good knowing you got everything put in the nice little boxes and checked it twice before hitting enter, it really doesn’t seem to correlate with how good you feel about it. There’s a level beyond “according to spec”. And it sparkles. I want it.
What does your life look like when it’s sparkling? How do you know when you need to light a few sparklers?
