Switchfoot

I've been living a pretty crazy lifestyle for a while now.  It hasn't been very long, but long enough to give me a little perspective on things.  It's not that I'm unhappy, because that isn't the case at all.  But as a career perfectionist, splitting my focus four different ways has not been good for me.  I haven't felt like I've been giving 100% of myself to any one of my jobs... and that is hard for me to handle.  I am the type of person that is NOT OKAY with giving anything less than everything I've got.  My Type-A personality cannot appreciate the scattered schedule and constant worry that I'm going to forget something; while My Type-B personality is completely grateful that I have the means to support myself... and appreciates the randomness of an artist-like lifestyle.  As you can see, I'm a little conflicted.

I have been taking life day by day, and trying to appreciate each day for what it offers... and yet, the days seem to be flying by completely out of my control.  Is that how life is supposed to be?  For some reason, I have this romantic notion that life, in it's day to day passing, should be more memorable than it is right now.

I always thought I knew what I wanted to do with my life.  Since I was about 17 years old, I knew that a part of me was always going to have gymnastics.  But there is an itch, deep inside my soul, that keeps telling me I'm meant for something different.  Maybe it is intuition... and maybe it's completely wrong... but there is a little voice that is nagging me to take a chance and try something completely new.

I guess I'm just looking for a little guidance.

This is a great song... and some good advice.  I might take it.

"Dare You To Move"

"Welcome to the planet
Welcome to existence
Everyone's here
Everyone's here
Everybody's watching you now
Everybody waits for you now
What happens next
What happens next


I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened before

Welcome to the fallout
Welcome to resistance
The tension is here
Tension is here
Between who you are and who you could be
Between how it is and how it should be
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened before


Maybe redemption has stories to tell
Maybe forgiveness is right where you fell
Where can you run to escape from yourself?
Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna go?
Salvation is here

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened
Today never happened
Today never happened before"



"Dare You to Move" - Switchfoot


Day 18: I dare you to move.  Make a move towards something you've dreamed about, something you need in your life, or a change that would better you.  I dare you to move... and I dare myself.  


Love True-
Allison
