The Future is a Turtle



As the month flies by for me, changing homes, states. I try to focus, I try to take a step back and reflect on the future that lies ahead. Where do I put my time and effort, to effectively shape my future, and help improve the world around me.

Blogging has been such a great release, and yet in times of stress and without internet access, it is very difficult to make any cyber progress. I am happy to be with Kelsey, and to look into the reflection with her as we try to plan our individual futures and figure out how they will intertwine with each other.

I feel such pressure to learn new things, and take my love for art and creativity and combine it with knowledge of technology and innovation. It can take hours to refocus my energies into the right place, and sometimes I never get that far. I want to read, study, and create all at once. I need to be safe and protected, yet take chances and push my comfort zones. True answers come from the friction of stress and danger, and I want true answers.

I just put a CoExist bumper sticker over my Obama sticker on my car. I like it better, and I do not want a million bumper stickers all over my car. For now, I like the CoExist sticker, and I plan to make sure my actions follow my bumper sticker. I do not want to false advertise. I want to be honest.

The Future is a Turtle, we all need to stick our collective heads out a little and see what we can do.

It's all about balance.

You need to take risks all the while taking care of the loves of your life. Friends and family are what matter at the end of the day.

You are doing great things. Keep being brave.... and kind.
