There are times when ignorance is truly bliss. ___=^..^=___Kittie
Hhhmm that's an interesting question. I'd probably answer it differently on different days.
that is truly an excellent question...maybe as "kattytrick" said, ignorance is bliss at least that way you don't know what you are sorely missing! I know what I love, it is just hard to "get there" sometimes.
AAAAAAAH! Oh dear. Just when I thought I was done thinking.Good thoughts...here I go again...:)))
The latter. . . definitely.Lovely photo by the way. :D
Maybe you just think you know what you want and it is more appealing because you can't obtain it. Grass is greener.
Six of one, half dozen of the other... guess it depends on the person.DI
ugh. both situations are pretty lousy... i'd settle for a bit of both as a compromise...
Hmm...I vote the not knowing, because how can you work toward it if you don't know what it is?
Ugh...that would suck!
Oh my goodness... I wonder that EVERY day. Still have no real answer.
I can be passionate about a lot of things. For me, it is allowing myself to focus on my art, and not be too pulled in other directions. Although I find most everything can feed my art. What I juggle is making a living with my day job, when I would rather be in the studio.
It's all about enjoying the journey.That's a beautiful photo.
Hmm, ... maybe the first one as there is still hope that one day you'll find your passion.
the first...because the second gives you a goal and tests your dedication and stamina!
I think not finding it is worse. . . because if you are exploring your passion, your destiny, and haven't achieved what you think of as success, perhaps you're 1. about to be taught that success isn't what you've always thought it to be; 2. you are in a position to rethink how to make things work better, more congruent with your purpose; or 3. you'll perfect things in your next life.
I think it's better to knowand long and wish but never arrive.Because at least the ache in the longinglets you know you're alive.To not be awake and aware and aliveto the passionleaves a soul, well, zombie-like.-Jennifer
I don't know but both lead to eventual acceptance, you'd hope.
I can tell you truthfully that the latter really bites.
i would say the second .. love the stems and blooms . like they are floating
Sounds like the chicken vs. egg predicament. No good answer. If I had to choose, I would choose the ignorance is bliss route. Then again, that's the way I feel a lot and it sucks! Perhaps knowing and not being able to reach it at least gives you the option of acceptance and moving on. Ugh! Now I can't decide! ha ha ha ha!!!
Ugh. I ponder this too often, and what does that say about me. Don't answer that.
Funny, I think the second would be my preference, I say funny because it's exactly my predicament I know what I am passionate about but I am very scared to venture out to do it... A total chicken is what I am :-(
I feel frustrated either way. I would hope we could all find our passion and have it fulfilled.
I was late discovering my passion, and that was frustrating, but now I'm caught in #2, and that's pretty damn frustrating as well. I think either way you have to take life a day at a time and find some kind of fulfillment in each one.
I think it's better to know your passion, even if you can't accomplish it...trying is half the fun. I HAVE to know my passion. (And, right now my brain is so full, I think I might explode.)PS. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this photo, beth. Incredible! hugs, Kath
...i just HAD to come by..i saw your comment at Kate's (Country Girl...one of my favorite people) anyway... i am sitting here in shorts and FLIP FLOPS !!!! 92 degrees here today...BUT rain is on the way...strangebut i enjoyed gardening all day :-)sending warm Springtime SunshineKary and teddy
I think that's hell anyway you look at it. And I'm there now.
it's hard to want to do and not be able to ...
Either would suck for sure!!! I guess I would like to be actively searching for it...I am sure I would be blessed along the way!! For the journey and the process is better than the final outcome. Usually!!!HugsSueAnn
the first is far worse.as long as you choosethe road you're onthere is alwaysthe possibilityof arriving at yourdestinationgenius question, by the way.like a zen koan.
Hi there Beth, good day to you my friend, just been trough your last couple of post and loved them...wonderful pictures those b&w...and the sea shore.Happy spring to you and don't be unprotected in that gorgeous sun my dearest.Hugs D
As long as you are passionately seeking or passionately trying, I think both people will end up realizing that maybe it was about the journey, and not necessarily the destination... At least that would be my hope for them.
Oh Beth...I have been WORRYING about this for several months....I think I have found it but I cant get it organized or get it to fit in the pretty package that I want it to fit in :-/ but at least I have found it and that I am SO grateful for
You ask hard question. :)I found mine. Sometimes I loose it and loose sight of what I love to do and do think we all do. Love your Image. Beautiful
I think the first is probably worse .You ?and the photo is gorgeous.
The first is the worst. It's an unbearable longing for something you cannot name nor would you recognize if it were in front of you. It's what fuels my blog posts :)
have you been peeking into my mind? if you find any answers in there, let me know.
the question stirred up my struggle which is different than the two offered... i find it a challenge to shift as my passions change, especially when they change fast... i think i'll just meditate on your beautiful photo for now :)
i think both are really bad. and a lot of people never find it, or they find their passion and don't dare to pursue it. i struggle.
**I love reading the comments you leave, as they make me feel like we're sitting in my kitchen, having a cup of tea, discussing life and wondering where all the time has gone ...beth
