So, the past year has been pretty crazy. It’s been filled with ups and downs and absolutely everything in between. Sounds like a normal life doesn’t it? That is normal. At least that’s what I think normal is.
In all of this, I’ve come to seriously think about things in my life (and outside of it). What things are these? Everything!
Political views, thoughts on religion, what I’m doing with my spare time. I am definitely not the same man that I was a short twelve months ago. I still relapse back into old ways, but that’s going to be inevitable from time to time.
There are some aspects of me that will never change no matter what. Those are just a part of who I am. I’m not yet where I need to be, but that is a process that can not have a shortcut. It will take time, and it may even take some help along the way.
All of this is just part of our own personal evolution. Nobody is the same as they were one, five, ten, or twenty years ago. People that come into our lives and events that occur shape us along the way. Those individuals could be a new friend or an author whose book you happened to pick up and read. Those events can be personal or ones that affect a larger portion of the population. Things happen for a reason, and I believe that reason is so that we end up becoming who we are meant to be.
Do we ever end up discovering who we are? That’s an excellent question. Maybe, maybe not. The best I can do is just continue sailing my vessel through this life, weather the storms, and make for a port when I absolutely have to.
Part of that is this weird nervousness I’m currently experiencing. I know why this is happening, however. I’ll be going on my first date in I don’t know how long tomorrow night. 😲
Yes, I used an emoji in my post. Deal with it.
Anyway… I can just see myself being really awkward tomorrow night. Seriously awkward. I don’t know anything about dating! Let’s see how many ways that I can screw up. Hey! That could be a drinking game! No. I don’t think that’s a good idea. I wouldn’t want anyone to get alcohol poisoning.
