    dotsToo much dots

    They say I want too much,
    be content with "just right",
    otherwise it is a sin;
    and I sit here wondering when did I go from wanting enough
    to too much?
    "Just settle down" they say
    and to me that's such an ugly way
    to explain adulthood.
    To me, that means that I just give up.
    I don't expect more but to let life
    happen to me.
    It means to see others blossom and dream,
    while I lay in a 6 by 6 square with just enough.
    Who would I be if I just let the waves wash over me?
    I want to chase the sea's foam endlessly,
    discover each day new entities,
    embark each day with me adventures,
    always learning never quite finished yet.
    Life like a circle always growing exponentially,
    we must always explore the same thing with new eyes each new time.
    The butterfly does not see the sky the same way the caterpillar did,
    so why should we?
    I don't want them to say I just "settle down"
    because no one should be told to so,
    dreams should always be chased,
    life should be lived to the fullest,
    and I will constantly grow more in love with you,
    because to fall in love means that one day I will have to get up,
    so I rather learn each day different ways to be in love with you,
    to be perpetually mesmerized,
    to always want more.

      i think settling down looks different to different people. i will always remember my step brother, who got his gf pregnant 6 weeks after they'd met, asking me when i was going to make my father proud and give him grandchildren to which i replied i liked to think i made him proud in other ways...

    to my step brother having kids made him a grown up.

    now 10 years later (despite us being the same age) i am ready to start a family with my husband. hes not so ready but fingers and toes crossed he comes around to the idea haha!

    dont live you life how others think you should live it because they do not have to live with the regrets of a misdirected life at the end of the day. (well not your misdirection anyways)

    if youve got dreams go for them. with all youve got. i firmly believe we have these dreams for a reason so why not persue them and see how they turn out? its better than wondering what if when youre 87yrs old...

    i really like your caterpillar/butterfly vs the sky image.

    in some ways the idea behind this piece reminds me of Audrey Hepburn at the end of breakfast at tiffanys where she talks about not wanting to be put in a cage and he says to her that shes putting herself in that cage and no matter where she runs to she will always run into herself... i think if thats true we may as well make ourselves the best version possible if we a) cant escape ourselves or b) will always keep running into ourselves... you know?

    so why be the self everyone else wants you to be? if you cant stand that self dont be it!

    easier said than done but your convictions seem strong enough to get you through.

    good luck.
    go well.

      It's been a long time, but I had this self same argument with the status quo when I was young. Let me say this, there is some wisdom to "Just settle down". With age comes responsibility and the need for consistency. People must be able to count on you. You can't allow that wild hare to side track you when you've got a job to do. Other than that I totally agree "that's such an ugly way to explain adulthood". As our knowledge expands it opens new vistas of perception. We literally see the world through different eyes. A wise man once told me "the more I know, the more I know I don't know." Granted he was my physics professor but I find this a much better way to explain the adult attitude.
