My intentions often get lost in translation. I apologize if I come off as rude or negative - that’s not who I am nor how I like to be. I do have a tendency to call things as I see them. This doesn’t mean that I am right, it just means that my interpretation/observation is put on the table. If you disagree with me I will gladly listen and change my mind even. If you follow me on any of my social networks I feel that you should already know that the intentions behind my verbiage is not to offend but rather to share. Opinions make for great conversations.
In order to achieve greatness we must first believe that we are not great - in doing this, we leave ourselves room to grow into the greatness we are destined for.
Some people like to preach about their past and claim that it doesn’t define them. Excuse the cynicism, but I think that’s completely untrue. What you do every day helps pave the road you travel in life. If you choose to involve yourself in pointless activities you begin to reap what you sow. You should not start doing something knowing that one day it’ll all be in the past. We cannot continually write off every dumb moment to a “young mistake.” I do, however, believe that you cannot hold someone’s past against them if they are genuinely trying to change - but that’s a different story. Most people dismiss their past as a way of refusing to acknowledge who they truly are….um, denial. If you don’t confront your past, your patterns will continue to haunt you and define you even when you try to resist. There’s my two cents. Make sure you take control of the things you can control in your life so that your past will define you in a positive way. Just my two cents thought.
I’ve taken more control over my life and those that I surround myself with. I am happier and more motivated than I have ever been. I notice that my mental health has improved - I am less stressed and more positive. I graduated from a 4-year college. I beat out my competition and landed one of two openings for my position at work. I am on my way to co-founding my own entertainment services business. I am pretty damn proud of myself. I’ve come a long way from who I was and I’m still learning every day. Excuse the cheesy, cliche sound of everything but it really is all true.
Lately I’ve been able to laugh even in the most stressful situations. Life is good.
90% of these movies just came out in the last 3 years. how did we GROW up with these? I appreciate the message. But….what? okay. I’m done.
Every image of you is a glimpse in my peripheral.
Every memory of you is all kept in digital.
Thoughts of you are best kept at a minimal.
Because the thought of you locks me up like a criminal.
You can’t see me now because you’ve made me invisible.
Am I the ONLY one that noticed the grammatical error in the 7th sentence? “Than” should read “then”…as in “then it dawned on me.”
The best way to really tell if you are “over” a situation is by seeing the person you had the “issue” with after a long period of not seeing them. If you get feelings of anger or hurt all over again, then you haven’t let go of the issue.
For example - you break up with someone over a horrible fight/incident (cheating, etc.) and stop speaking to them all together. When you walk past them 6 months later you may get angry/sad all over again and…well you’re not over it.
This blog probably to makes no sense to anyone reading it but oh well…it’s just me dumping out my thoughts.
I saw you this weekend and I felt nothing, no anger, no hate…I’ve completely forgiven you…and it feels great to know that.
