I met a woman at a conference last week who told me that I was compelling and had an “aura” about me. “But you need to focus,” she qualified. A series of wildly diverse thoughts swirled through my awareness. She was right, of course, and I was stunned that she was able to make so acute an observation within moments of meeting me. I considered that she may have read my mind.⠀
🔮⠀
Then I fretted, streamline what? Focus in which regard? I do feel overwhelmed, like my attention is constantly pulled in too many directions. But what to eliminate? How to simplify? There are so many competing forces for our time: family, friends, learning, reading, exercise, art, music, nature, volunteering...what could be cut out?⠀
🔮⠀
Isabella was right, though. In order to be truly “good” at anything, you must devote yourself to it. At some point, there needs to be a decision: what is worth the time you spend on it? What are you willing to sacrifice in mediocrity, to pursue in greatness? What do you truly value? What is just a strain on your energy?⠀
🔮⠀
I don’t have the answers yet, but this is my meditation for the time being. How do I become my best self? Where do I focus?

When you make some friends at the climbing gym and are just like, “yup. You’re my people now.”

They are writhing and dying and burning.

Even when this is your backyard, sometimes you forget how magical it is. ✨🌄 Thanks for helping me remember, @kyla_morton and @mandypand. Let’s do it again soon!!

Yesterday was the day I seriously wondered whether a bovine creature would be interested in being best friends. I tried to ask but his mom shooed me away with some adamant mooing. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ if you don’t want people to talk to your calf, don’t let him stand on the trail, Ms. Cow!

(I think he did want to be friends. Look at that smile! Doesn’t he look like a Henry?)
