Have you ever really focused on something? Giving every fiber of your being for a singular purpose? It’s exhilarating right? Your whole body is working together towards the goal. Eyes look down a tunnel to show you the length left to go. Darkening the bright faces of those around you and missing the simple wonders of life. Ears drown out everything, from the buzzing of a fly to your partner trying to tell you about their day. The need for food and drink becomes unnecessary until you feel your body fight back once you’ve taken a break. Even worse are the disappointed eyes of those who expected you to make food for the family. One’s mind is consumed by the singular thought where you’ll forget people’s birthdays… or you have a blog… So, I encourage you to chase after your aspirations, but remember to stay connected to those around you.
