When Does This Ship Leave Port

I have spent my whole life waiting for something to happen to me.

When I was in rock bands I waited to be discovered.

When I was in design school I waited for a professor to have to have me work for him.

When I started working I waited to move quickly up the ranks and be taken under the wing of a superior to be groomed into a leading position.

None of those things happened, of course. Life isn’t a movie, and even if it was, I was never the one talented enough to be lavished with attention. Not the lead role. I’m more supporting cast type.

I realized recently that I can start my own webpage and write a blog for cheap. And it is possible that people will read it and I will gain some notoriety from it. But most likely not. Most likely it will work as a living journal to get out some of my ideas and make me feel better about the fact that I’m living on a five star cruise ship stuck at port.

I haven’t decided yet if that is okay or not, but I have decided there isn’t much I can do about it.

Some days this blog will be dark and some days hopefully amusing and some days uplifting but always honest.

  • People make things happen in their lives. They don’t wait around for things to happen. They plan, work toward their goals and show flexibility when things don’t go as expected or or as they hoped. Every successful person I know worked hard for their success.
