      Never knew why I read so much. She nailed it for me.

      All of this resonates so deeply.

      I don't just want one thing. I want it all. This is why I read so much. I want to know it all. I want to hear every story. I want to feel everything that can be felt. I want to live a thousand lives. I read and I read and I read, and I love every word and every hurt and every dream and every failure.

      The way I related to this. Sigh.

        Thank you for resurrecting this.

        OMG. this,too:

        Sometimes I look at this list. Then I look at people who have singular destinies, and I'm in awe and I'm jealous. It hurts a little. I want a singular passion. I want to be driven by only one goal, not ten thousand goals. Because having ten thousand goals is paralyzing sometimes, and you can never truly dedicate yourself to something the way that that something deserves. Because having ten thousand goals means you always feel like you're searching for the one.

        Perfectly encapsulates a bit of personal lostness and paralysis past weeks when the previous chapter was all about vision boarding and such. A lot of my current issue lately is literal paralysis from cold which has interrupted morning schedule a bit. Having to re-structure mornings innovatively.

      The woman who wrote about Uber is still writing and still extremely relatable.
