Where I Want to Be

Last night I apparently posted to Twitter:

I don’t like that I haven’t been where I want to be.

It was a random, late night, verge of sleep tweet, but it spawned a couple of responses essentially asking where is it that I want to be.

I want to be where…

  • I’m employed
  • I’m learning new things
  • I’m appreciated, and I know feel it
  • I finish posts that I start
  • I’m not so self-critical
  • my leg was never hurt
  • I don’t have to worry about how I’m paying bills next month, or this month for that matter
  • I’m back in shape
  • my dog doesn’t shed as much
  • my grass grows
  • I’m taking more photos… like I used to
The universe is funny. Randomly, as I’m writing this, iTunes choose to start playing The Ataris’ “In This Diary”. If you don’t know the song, the line that caught my ear was “I guess when it comes down to it, being grown up isn’t half as fun as growing up”.

Where do I want to be? I want to be 20 years ago…but then I wouldn’t have my kids, so not really.

Where I need to go? I need to go working on growing up, because I’m tired of being grown up.
