“Every day I discover more and more beautiful things. It’s enough to drive one mad. I have such a desire to do everything, my head is bursting with it.” ― Claude Monet —
Do you ever feel like you love so many things that you couldn’t possibly choose something to pursue wholeheartedly? I have such a desire to do everything, I feel I might burst!

I find this to be a hindrance and simultaneously consider myself one of the lucky ones. On the one hand, loving so many things leaves me in a state of crippling indecisiveness. On the other hand, I am constantly incorporating all of my interests into my daily life—art, history, language, fitness, healthy living, television, film, fashion; I might be directionless but I’m definitely not passionless.

It’s overwhelming at times—evening maddening! How can I find direction with all these wonderful pursuits in front of me? Do you just pick something and let everything else fall by the wayside? What about wanting to gain new skills or take on new challenges? Where does one find the time?

I don’t have any answers today. And I think that’s okay. I'd love to hear your thoughts if you have a few seconds to spare! — (I took this photo at the Santa Monica City Clerk building yesterday—of course it reminded me of Monet’s waterlilies.) #monet #waterlillies #santamonica #musing #direction #passion #pursuits #whatsayyou

I have so much love in my heart for the man who taught me everything. He is so generous and selfless. His compassion for others is unparalleled. He walks in the room and everyone's faces instantly light up. My dad is such a wonderful partner to my mom; it's a joy to witness their relationship and I've definitely learned so much from watching the way he treats her and how she cares for him. My dad is also the perfect grandad to Forrest--that little boy is so loved and cherished by him. I'm eternally grateful to my dad for providing my sister and me with a strong male role model who is also sensitive. He took our family on the most incredible trips, which have shaped who I am to this day. I'm so grateful that he encouraged me to pursue a career in the arts without hesitation. I'll never forget all the hours spent together on the soccer field and in the car driving to and from games and tournaments. He made such a sacrifice to be there for me all the time, even while he was running his own company! Now that I'm an adult, I realize how mind boggling it is that he managed to do that! He has always welcomed in all of my friends, acting like a second father to them. I know they love him so much, too! I honestly can say without a doubt he is one of the most incredible humans I've ever met. Happy birthday, Dad! I love you! @colinandrewmcneill #mydad #hbd #happybirthday #rolemodel #iloveyoudad #myheart

If you know me, you know I love friendship. It's probably one of my all-time favorite things about life. I think it's really important that we share what we love about our friends. So today I want to give a shout-out to my best friend Sarah! 🖤 I'm so excited to watch her sing with the super talented @bellsaintmusic tonight at the @thepeppermintclub 🎤 I really am just so proud of her. She's out there pursuing her singing career, writing songs and collaborating with other musicians. How exciting! I know the world will be a better place with her lyrics and voice in it. At a time in my life where I don't know if what I'm doing is right or which direction I should go next, it's encouraging to witness Sarah follow her dreams with such tenacity and passion. #inspiration #bff #singersongwriter #saemusic #proudofyousister #mybff #santamonica #westhollywood @saepappas (📷 by me actually! 😛)
I won my first bet at the races, and then proceeded to lose for the rest of the day. 😬 At least I looked like Carmen Sandiego! ✌🏼 #santaanitaracetrack #bettingontheponies #whereintheworldiscarmensandiego #redcoatsarecoming
"It is a miracle if you can find true friends, and it is a miracle if you have enough food to eat, and it is a miracle if you get to spend your days and evenings doing whatever it is you like to do, and the holiday season—like all the other seasons—is a good time not only to tell stories of miracles, but to think about the miracles in your own life, and to be grateful for them." —Lemony Snicket, The Lump of Coal

“Whatever creates or increases happiness or some part of happiness, we ought to do; whatever destroys or hampers happiness, or gives rise to its opposite, we ought not to do.” Aristotle, Rhetoric --- Last night that meant buying a Christmas tree with Katie and Shane and running over to Rite Aid to get the trimmings to make our dreams a reality. Tonight that means hanging with friends in Echo Park, drinking beer, recording music, shooting the shit, and seeing Travis perform a Bowie/Elvis show in Pasadena. Sometimes happiness is quiet and intimate. Sometimes it's loud and rambunctious. But it's happiness either way. #happiness #friendship #lovemylife #lovemyfriends #sappy #treesap #disap

Sometimes when I'm sitting at work, I think, "Man, I wish I could hang out with Forrest!" He's just the sweetest gift. #daydreaming #santamonica #nephew #auntie #love #forrestandrewmcneill
