Putting together the puzzle pieces...

"Listen to the clues. The next time you feel real joy, stop and think. Pay attention. Because joy is the universe’s way of knocking on your mind’s door. Hello in there. Is anyone home? Can I leave a message? Yes? Good! The message is that you are happy, and that means that you are in touch with your purpose." ~Steve Chandler

It's Holy Thursday today... It's a week before my birthday. It's a different feeling this year... less excitement... more tired and what's the point really? I took the day off from work today... got some rest (am almost fully healthy!)... did some school work (it will end soon... it will)... continued making puzzle with my mom... tried to find doubles with my dad (failure... apparently all doubles vendors have been replaced by gyro vendors)... it was a good day really. 

I just keep feeling that I'm missing something. What's my purpose really? I look at the quote above and think that he got it wrong... I feel real joy... you can't make a living out of a lot of things that bring real joy (can one make money out of making puzzles? let me know if one can...) ... is it that I'm practical (too much so?) ... is it that I don't have faith (how much is too little?).

Perhaps one day this blog will have a post reflecting my enlightenment... my found purpose... until such time I continue to try putting puzzle pieces together... figuring out life day by day... moment by moment. 

Night all,

Thanks :) I think so as well.. this one's mine (as in going in my room as opposed to some random wall space)...

My dad and brother says it's too busy.. my mom says it's grown on her while we've built it (we're done - it's amazing).. I <3 it
