living without goals.....


i just read a post
over on Zen Habits
(http://zenhabits.net/no-goal/#more-6667)
about living a life
without goals

i love this philosophy
and realize
when looking over
the days of my life
that this is how i live

i have always
thought of it as
flying by the seat of my pants
(not a very grown up way to live)
and maybe for years i was
wandering somewhat aimlessly
with no clear direction

but today i am feeling
like my life has become
more and more about
doing what i love
doing what is important to me

regardless of the outcome
or where it gets me
and eventually goals
(or dreams rather)
will be achieved

and ultimately
isn't that a life
well lived...

the night before.....

it's
the night before
the next chapter begins

i am
looking forward
but also
looking back

already missing
the freedom
the familiar pattern
of my days
at the same time
anticipating
the challenge
of new adventures

remembering
the old saying
it's
the first day
of the rest
of my life
enjoy.....

celebrating my birth and rebirth...

so much going on...

image found via Google Images

in the midst
of making
a tough decision
one that will
cause my path
to make a little
S-curve

weighing
the pros and cons
looking
for as many positives
as possible

scared
(but trying to remember
fear is just a fantasy)
of the chaos
coming back into
my life

seeking
guidance and wisdom
from my higher power

opening
my heart
in anticipation of answers

knowing
nothing is forever
it's the next chapter
starting to unfold...
