All is Vanity…


King Solomon got it right. All IS Vanity. We struggle and stress, and fume and fret, and push ourselves or believe in something or give ourselves goals to reach…only to find we were too early or too late or too worked up or not worked up enough. As he noted, all things pass away, the good and the not-so-good.

I’m sitting here realizing that a half-baked pipe-dream is now ashes, and Im trying to decide whether or not I even care. I suppose part of me does, because I’d like to think that if I was willing to entertain the dream in the first place, I must’ve done SOME analyzing right??? Then I realize that, nope, I didn’t analyze enough, I was being spontaneous like I always am, and if there’s a bright side to my latest pipe dream crashing down, its that I discovered it WAS a pipe dream before I invested too much more time or money or emotion or whatever. I guess in that sense, I was pretty lucky. And on the plus side, I am now master of my own destiny once again. Because I am free. Beholden to no one. And thats the way I like it.
