Like a leaf that falls on lavender, some moments simply happen...
Last night my son came down stairs to where his Dad and I were watching the news and said with his mouth full of tooth paste, "I just don't know what I want to do with my life."
I watch him for a minute and shudder a little as he swallows a mouthful of Crest, and say "Why do you need to decide right now?" I am not ready for a statement like this at this time of night. I may never be ready for this declaration of decisions and duty, but somehow seventeen in the evening seems a little early and far too young.
Why hurry into something that life can dictate on it's own, when we live life fully and courageously each and every day...
Yes, I understand there are and always will be necessary measures to the path of success. But I have learned life is way too short; and answers many times only conjure up more questions.
I realise also my son suddenly felt the weight of the world on his growing, gangling frame shift? Can you blame me for bluffing ?
Life doesn't offer trite answers son. So please forgive me for not replying in black and white. I was too busy noticing the question behind your statement, and trying to catch my breath.
