I’m coming to grips with the fact that I’m an interesting person. It sounds strange when I say it. I’ve always been different, hard to pin down. People didn’t understand me, and that made me interesting.
This is different. The things I’ve done and the things I’m doing are starting to accumulate into something else. I knew they would. That’s why I did them. But now my vision is starting to become more tangible for others. They’re interested. They ask me questions. They actually listen to the answers. Then, they want to know more.
This seems strange to me. In part, because I’ve been building for so long that I’ve gotten rather used to my construction being invisible to others. Sure, some people have gotten the big picture all along. I like those people! I appreciate those people!
But most people just couldn’t see it. They’d ask me questions, but they couldn’t quite appreciate the answers. Now, they can. They can see what I’ve been seeing and they can see how what I’ve done fits into the bigger picture I can paint for them.
Each of these moments represents the opportunity to plant a seed. Some seeds will take. Others will be forgotten. A few will flourish.
Share your dreams. Plant your seeds. Nurture those you can.
