Pursuing our dreams, not theirs.

Ideas on pursuing our individual dreams, not the dreams of others. Learning to hear our inner voice to guide us toward them while filtering out the noise of modern society’s dream pushers.

I’ve written about the messy middle ground. It’s the idea that a messy and uncomfortable period happens on the road toward positive change.
JRWI has helped me learn how to work with this in difficult times rather than try and numb myself to them.
I feel grateful for this.
I’ve been thinking about another idea over the past 5 months. It’s one I’m referring to as creative destruction or constructive destruction.
This is the idea that something may need to be destroyed before something more beneficial replaces it.
The thing destroyed could be a concept or preconceived notion or idea. It could be a relationship with a person, place, or thing.
The ideas complement each other. For example, the messy middle ground may emerge from an act of construction destruction.
I’m still working through these ideas and their relationships to each other.
In the meantime, please let me know if they resonate with you and how they do.
Catch you next week,

Semi-Random Thoughts
I’m (still!) working to migrate the blog from a paid hosted Wordpress blog to a self-hosted Ghost blog. I hope it will be available again in the next week or so. You can access this newsletter here until the migration is done.
What podcasts do you listen to? Now that I’m riding my bike outside more, I’ll be listening to fewer podcasts. This means the Podcast of the Week won’t be updated as often as during the colder months.
Send me podcasts that connect with you and I’ll share them as well. Let me know if (and how) you’d like to be credited in the newsletter when I share your submission.
