#212. DON’T leave an itch unscratched.

18 Comments 06 February 2013

Everyone’s got something inside them ticking away, something knocking on the back of the brain, tugging at their subconscious for attention. Everybody’s got something they want to do, learn, try or change. Everybody’s go an itch. An itch that won’t go away until it gets scratched.

For some people, that itch might be that round-the-world trip they never did in between finishing high school and starting Uni. For others, it’s a new career path, a sea or tree-change, or maybe picking up that guitar that’s played host to more spiders in the last ten years than it has played songs.

For me, well, let’s just say I’d need another set of arms, hands and fingers to scratch all the itches that wrestle for my attention. Currently though, my itchiest itch is to write and direct a short film. No, hang on, it’s to stop working for the man and start my own ad agency. No, it’s to get fitter and healthier. No, it’s to cook more amazing meals. No it’s to bike around Tasmania. No, it’s to restore an old Holden or Valiant. No it’s to…

Anyway, whatever your itch is, I encourage you to make some time to give it a good old scratch.

    I feel the same way, I would blame it on my kids but I wouldn’t trade them for anything in the world. Guess I will just do the best I can and do what I am able to do. Good stuff and have a great day.

    So true. Timing is everything, though. For years, I’ve been wanting to splurge on a 250-hour yoga teacher training course and get certified to teach, but it’s expensive and very time-consuming — 19 hours every other weekend! The stars aligned, I got a better job, I don’t have to work weekends anymore, I make more money…and in February, I started. It was just the idea in the back of my head that wouldn’t go away…

    I’ve been feeling like that. Except mine is I am trying not to feel bad just for doing little things that make me happy. Maybe they are a little unhealthy, maybe I could be “fit,” but in the end, I’m the one who has to live with myself all day. Haha!
