““Why am I here?” It’s a useful question to ask often. Either it will re-focus your reasons for being where you are, or it will make you realize your reasons have expired and you should be somewhere else.”

Why am I here? | Derek Sivers

That choice we make to live where we live, is a profoundly critical choice, yet we often get too settled, unable to easily move on, and we avoid that “Why am I here?” question.

Should you be moving on?

P.S. In today’s connected world, “Because my family is here.” may be a cop out…

“If you can walk to work or take your bike on a daily basis, I think that’s just about the coolest thing that there is. Every morning I listen to the traffic on the radio, and they talk about how they are jammed and I just laugh. I love traffic. I love traffic reports because I’m not in any of them.”

Jerry Seinfeld, urbanist.

Pretty much how I feel about working from home (mostly), walking the dogs in the morning or having coffee in the garden, and escaping from the traffic we dealt with living on O’ahu. Love living on a neighbor island and not the busiest ones.

“If I dismiss the ordinary — waiting for the special, the extreme, the extraordinary to happen — I may just miss my life. […] To allow ourselves to spend afternoons watching dancers rehearse, or sit on a stone wall and watch the sunset, or spend the whole weekend rereading Chekhov stories—to know that we are doing what we’re supposed to be doing — is the deepest form of permission in our creative lives. The British author and psychologist Adam Phillips has noted, “When we are inspired, rather like when we are in love, we can feel both unintelligible to ourselves and most truly ourselves.” This is the feeling I think we all yearn for, a kind of hyperreal dream state. We read Emily Dickinson. We watch the dancers. We research a little known piece of history obsessively. We fall in love. We don’t know why, and yet these moments form the source from which all our words will spring.” Read this, your soul will thank you (via explore-blog)
