Over the last few months I’ve worked really hard to change the way I think. And I have to be honest with you, it’s worked. I’m not sure I’ve ever been happier. Ever been more sure of myself. What I want. Who I am.
When I took my hiatus (the most recent one), it was because I was putting all of my creative “bursts” into something else. Something slightly more private that I was sharing with only one person. I wrote about a vast majority of topics and through all of this I changed. Drastically. I began thinking about things. Concepts. Abstractions that I had always wanted to have meaning. And the truth is I was able to give them meaning.
Which leads me to my real point of this post: Two days ago, I found myself oddly wanting to sit under my desk.
Now, one of these abstractions (so to speak) was my own curiosity. I’ve accepted that I am a curious person and it has taken me to some interesting places lately.
Point: Yesterday morning I sat under my desk.
And while I literally sat under my desk, I want us to think about this as a metaphor. That’s right. That was a metaphor. If you don’t know what a metaphor is, just quit reading.
I’ve been sitting in a lot of places that I didn’t used to. Like at the foot of my bed instead of leaning on my headboard. Like on the floor instead of the couch. Like under my desk. Like the opposite end of the couch.
You might be asking, “how is any of this a metaphor? And what could it possibly mean if it were a metaphor?”
I don’t have a straight answer for you. Maybe there is no such thing. But, maybe you should try sitting somewhere new. Sitting somewhere unexpected. You might just find a new perspective (if you are looking for clues to answer your questions, this is the best one).
I guess really what I’m saying is explore your curiosities. Maybe that’s the metaphorical riddle’s answer. Maybe that’s just my perspective (oops I did it again).
