MY IMAGINATION RUNS WILD

If I had a plane, a helicopter, jet, hell even a boat… I would go to my favorite places around the world… which I’ve never been too….

and live, experience, taste sight-see, breathe in so much richness, exhale my own goodness…I would be free. I would be me.

I feel so lost… even hired help cant help me. It’s funny now, I miss my hustle…my purpose. Is writing my purpose?…so many books is there one more space available for me. One shelf in popular book stores…

I feel it but I don’t know how to reach it. I have to reach it. Was 9 to 5 ever my cup of coffee? lol bored and confine to a desk for 8 hours. I rather watch T.V. lol…at least I would be stimulated, right? What’s right for me… or maybe I already know…maybe everyone knows what they secretly want to do and purposely avoid it.

I feel like I’m destined for greatness. I have stories to tell (We all have stories to tell)… Someone out there needs… needs my inspiration. My love. My support. All this good advice… I’ve been through a lot. I must have a story to tell.
