I’m on my way, I’m taking my time and I don’t know where

I have to be honest it hasn’t been the greatest last few days. In addition to that (or because of that), I ran into an absolute dearth of ideas for a post. It’s odd; I’ve been busy before, but it’s the first time in a while where I couldn’t write at all for days. Perhaps the way this post reads still reflects that state of mind, but I have to get back to it, or I’ll lose my habit of writing on a regular basis.

Anyway, with a little bump in med dosage and some exercise, I feel a little better. But what lifted my spirits up a little more this morning as I drove around to do some errands? Paul Simon. I sang along to his classics, like “You can call me Al,” “Graceland,” and my favorite “me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard.” The line “I’m on my way, I don’t know where I’m going” always makes me pause and think for a second. Where am I? Do I know where I’m going? Do I need to know where I’m going? To me, the song reminds us that as long as you’re moving in life, it’s okay to not be so clear about the goal. By the way, it also reminds me why I named my cat Simon in the first place (I play this CD every time he’s in the car).

So, maybe I haven’t felt good recently. But even if I don’t know exactly where I’m going in life,  I know I’m still on my way to getting better. I’m just taking my time…

  1. I love this post. It is such an important reminder to us all to pause and to also remember it’s okay not to know all the answers. We can still be “on our way”. Great song, too!
