I am not too sure that I understand what I am supposed to do with the rest of my life. I know that I am supposed to be doing what I am doing, but even that doesn’t seem to be “it.” Is there something that I am missing? If so, than what?
I am writing this after watching the Jerry Seinfield documentary, Comedian. It is a film that follow Jerry as he goes back into stand-up comedy after years of television, etc. He commits to starting with all new material. An interesting idea.
It made me think.
Honestly, I have thought about comedy before, but not really seriously. Now, it isn’t as if the film made comedy seem attainable, but it did inspire me to pursue dreams. At a few, brief points in my life, I have thought about comedy. It isn’t as if I think that I am that funny, but I sure love being up in front of a crowd. I sure love reacting to the ebb and flow of a delivery. I like trying to be funny, but then totally bombing. I love being creative. I love it when people genuinely laugh.
Don’t worry, you are not going to see me in your local bar trying to make a name for myself any time soon. I am secure with where I am.
Last week someone told me that a part of heaven may be just having the time to pursue all the things that God gifted us with. I like that thought. There are many things that I feel like I could do, but don’t have the time to develop them. Maybe someday I will.
