I sometimes feel bad that my indoor cats don’t get to go beyond the deck. Their world is so small.
Then I think how relatively small my own world is. I’ve been to a number of states in the US, but I’ve never been abroad. I’m not a socialite who has a hundred friends or so. I don’t go to a lot of different area eateries or places of note. There’s a lot of things I haven’t done, places I haven’t been, people I don’t know.
But it’s okay. I’m branching out more as I go. I’m making more friends, trying new places and things. Unlike the cats, I have the internet, so I can at least virtually explore the world and its varying people and nature. I can always explore the world around me through the people I see everyday. They all have stories to share. That’s pretty exciting.
I will not stop believing that I’ll get to do the things I want to do, as long as I stay determined and motivated. And as for the cats, well, they have me and my brother, and each other, and the deck and windows. They seem content.
Am I content? Hmmm. Have to say not entirely. I’m trying to be happy with where I’m at, while staying hopeful about the future. I do pretty well at that. That’s good enough for now.
