August 22 prompt from Putting My Feet in the Dirt – Fighting for a forever
Do you ever get tired of trying? A lot of effort goes into being alive. Once you have food and shelter taken care of, the world asks you to do more—be more. Now that I believe in reincarnation, I’m faced with making something out of myself in this life and preparing for the next thousand.
I believe that I’m here for a reason, maybe more than one reason. My parents needed me, but they are gone now. I used to be convinced that after my parents died, I would no longer have a purpose. That seems a little crazy, but it felt like my job, being a daughter, was done. Now I have a husband who enjoys my company. Do I have a new job?
Perhaps I’m part of an elaborate scheme that I can never understand.
Life will likely not reveal all of its mysteries to me while I’m here on earth. So I’ll keep trying. When I get tired, I’ll take a nap.
What I really want is to do is travel in the TARDIS with The Doctor.
