Life as a Maze

Posted on October 28, 2009 at 3:14 PM

 

As an actor you are able to see the future. You get a script and you know what will be said and what will happen in the scenes you are in. As a writer you can create the future. You write what you want to happen and it does. Life however is not so straight forward and you rarely have the control to dictate every outcome. There are twists and turns that are not always seen until they are staring you right in the face. Sometimes you don't see them until after you have passed them by completely. Life is often less straight ahead highway and more of a maze which we all enter and eventually exit, but everything in-between is a bit of a quandary. Hamlet once asked the famous question, "To be or not to be? That is the question."

 

 

Not to put down Mr. Ham or Shakes the Spear himself, but I don't think that is the question. In fact, I think there a million questions, but none of them have to do with to be or not to be. I am already, therefore I "be". Meaning, I am already here, so that is not something I wonder about. To be is already answered in my eyes. Being was out of my control, so I don't waste much time trying to figure that out.

 

 

I guess we all have our own questions. My brother Josh has been visiting Erica and me in LA and he has his questions. Erica also has a lot of her own questions. For the past few weeks we have all gone back and forth talking about each of our questions. Sure there are some basic answers like, how am I supposed to live? You live by inhaling and exhaling. If you cease to do either than you will not stay living for long. But what if you want to do more than just survive? If you are like me and are a bit of a dreamer than just surviving does not even come close to cutting it.

 

 

Other times it’s not that there are no answers, but WAY too many answers to choose from. It's like being hungry and going into a 5,022 piece buffet. You want to try everything, but there's no chance of that being possible (trust me I've tried).

 

I can't speak to anyone else's questions, but I can speak to mine. Currently there are numerous opportunities in front of me and I am unsure which to choose. I love acting, writing, travelling, directing, producing, ministering, meeting new people, connecting with old friends, and making a difference in life. There's a lot of room in there to do a lot of different things.

 

 

My questions are not based in what I believe or my value system. Those I have a decent grasp on. My questions are not in the meaning of life or why are we here at all, because some questions are so big that even if we have a clue I doubt anyone completely understands it ALL. My questions right now have more to do with "what's next" and "when".

 

If you will keep us in your thoughts and prayers we would greatly appreciate it. We would like some insight as to which way to go. As much as we like options and possibilities we would like a bit of a nudge or even a push in the right direction.

Thanks for reading!

Perhaps you should clone yourself? Sometimes it would be appealing to be able to travel down different paths simultaneously. A life full of possibilities is definitely a blessing. Many out there feel they have no choices. Know this--whatever your decision, it will be the one right for you.

You and your family are in my prayers, Jayce. May the Good Lord slam the doors shut, where you are not meant to go, and open the door where He wants you to be. I excited to see what He has planned for you. As always, keep us posted.
God bless,
Susan
