Blog Every Day in May: Day 26

Almost done with May! What a crazy month! Surprisingly!

Blog Every Day in May: Day 26 and the prompt is…Something you read online.

I love me some blogs. I have a billion saved in my reader that I need to catch up on!  There are so many things in the news just in the last few days that I could have commented on…but I decided to go a different route.  I was very behind in reading this particular blog…I was glad that I picked this one to catch up on first…

Text for Tired Eyes:
At this exact instant on this exact planetthere are more people than you, or I, or anyone elsewould ever care to admit, that are buried beneaththe weight of wasted time. The shoulds and supposed tos and becauses and jobsand money and requirements and responsibilitiesadd up and pile up and entomb us.How many miles separate how many peoplefrom the lives they should be leading,the people they should be loving and the momentsthey will never get back?The justification of this frustrationpaints a glossy veneer of happiness over the rustof the truth hiding below it.It’s the realization of our encapsulationthat cracks the paint and lets the color fade.When do we forget the value of what we holdand when do we forget to care about the buryingwe submit ourselves to?Somewhere a much younger version of ourselves is staring into the futureraising tiny fists,  clenched into the airand screaming a wordless warning that falls ondeaf ears that age has stolen sound from.We see ourselves and we see the meaning we’ve assignedto meaningless things;we see the imagination running off the pages we painted,watercolors evaporating and leaving behind only blankcanvas, only dry brushes. Hasn’t the time come to stop this, to put waterto the burning of our futures by the flames of ourpast restrictions?  Has not the time arrived tomix the color in the water and dip the brush,dried an atrophied and lonely from the waiting it toohas endured?Live life like you love to live and make that lifethe one you’ve been waiting for.At this exact instant you and only youcan rise from the layers of wasted time,drive your hand through the sediment andfeel the sunlight on your fingers.

I don’t know about you, but I waste a lot of time. There are so many other things I wish to be doing. Most of those things I can’t do because of random circumstances, but I know I could do MORE… There are only a couple people that I know personally that truly live…and I am amazed all of the time at all that they do.

I hope one day to rise from the layers of wasted time myself. It should be easy…right?

    I would love to join in and not waste time either, my body just won’t cooperate. Love you.

    I waste so much time just trying to figure out how to best spend my time! Does that make sense?

    I am ready to dip my brush back in the paint again. After this final commitment I have for the next two weeks, I am taking some very much “me” time. Great post.

      Awesome!!! I was doing that mixed media stuff for a while. I miss that even though I didn’t do it for very long. Are you going to post anything that you make? 🙂
