For about a year now, I have been what you call a full-blown, without a doubt, adult; was I an adult before? Yes, in a milder sense but the difference is that now I no longer have my parents looking over me, taking care of me…showing me love and affection which I have grown so accustomed to for past 20+ years of my life.
But trust me it’s not as bad as I’m making it out to be, of course, there was a bit of a learning curve; first learning to survive on my own, by reawakening my latent Home Economic skills; then there’s the fact that I must take care of an entire house all on my own, it’s not easy but I am getting the hang of it.
Which leads me into my topic of discussion: Change. I know pretty cliche, right?
But as much as people talk about change all the time, we never really seem to accept it very well or in some cases not accept it when we shouldn’t. We’re all different people and we all see things and deal with change differently. This past year taught me that life is full of change and the reluctance to accept or not to is what keeps us from moving forward. I know what you’re thinking:
“If you don’t accept change isn’t it the same as not moving forward?”
Not exactly, if you choose not to accept the change, at least you’re doing something about it, it really depends on the kind of change and it all stems from that choice and how it affects you. (Confusing?)
Change is inevitable, and if you don’t take an active approach to change, life will just leave you behind…
I had to learn that the hard way, and now I’m at a point where I don’t know if it makes sense to even move on…but I know the answer, I know what I must do, and knowing the kind of person I am, I WILL procrastinate, but I WILL make my move, sooner than you think.
At this point, you’re probably wondering what was the point of all of this? Well to tell you the truth, there was no point to this passage, I just felt like writing…talking to someone out there who may be reading this; I take comfort in the fact that I can put my thoughts down and someone, somewhere in the not so distant or distant future will pick this up and read it for God knows what reason.
Well hats off to you good sir or madam because you’ve completely wasted your time reading the rantings of a restless young mind craving the answers to life’s social mysteries, maybe the answer is much simpler than I thought?
*UGHH!* I’m going to stop here for now, so in closing, Change is inevitable, (yadayadayada) if you don’t accept it you’ll be left behind (yadayadayada) OK I think I’ve covered most of what I’ve been trying to say, *insert clever inspirational tag line here*.
(I might be a bit drunk).
Oh! Almost forgot! First of all I’d like to thank you all for reading my blogs; you didn’t have to, but the fact that you took the time out your busy schedule to read this means the world to me! Thank you so much!
Now with that out of the way; with all this talk about change, this time is as good as any to let you know that you may be seeing some changes with the blog, and hopefully you’ll like them. Nothing too major; you might notice my writing style changing a bit and the topics i’ll be tackling will cover a wider variety, also there’s another project in the works, so keep an eye out for that. I’ll also be posting at least twice a week now instead of everyday; I know, I know, kind of disappointing but with this schedule it’ll give me breathing room to write more. And in case you haven’t noticed this entry also serves as a platform to launch the new Logo for the blog, designed by the one and only ShaeZonna! You can check out her awesome designs as well, she does it all T-shirts, Posters, Business Cards, Brochures, you name it and she does it her links will be provided below.
I guess that’s it, once again thank you all for following me on this journey so far but this is only the beginning and I hope you all will continue with me every step of the way.
