Always a Christmas Post
With much consistency as a good pancake batter, I always find myself writing here especially during Christmas. I believe it’s got a lot to do with looking forward to the new year.
And like every year, I like counting my blessings, the things I’ve lost and the things I’ve learned. This year I’ve met some really interesting people, have gone through rather “interesting” situations, a couple of disappointing predicaments but all in all if you realize that at the end of the year you can always try to be the better version of yourself, you’ll feel much better.
I’d like to thank everybody for being part of this journey the past year and even before that. It remains that the people who indeed prefer to stay as part of our lives (no matter how lousy you think it is and it’s genuinely affecting how it really is), just remain part of it because they want to.
No declarations, no strong goals, except to open up to what’s already there, explore greater heights and not find limits within rules that won’t hurt anyone anyway. Life is too short for regrets, that I can say. Being aware of the frailty of human character will always help determine how far we’ve come learning some things that took others never to learn.
Lets all be grateful and let’s live freely. Never let anybody tell you you will never fit in a certain social circle, and what not. If your emotional makeup and genetic code is toxic to others then don’t squeeze yourself in. Sometimes good company diffuses that. This dictation of where you best belong is not for anybody to judge. You leave where you’re not wanted and that is that. There are more forgiving people as well as people who will take advantage of you. There will always be 2 sides of the coin and it’s up to you to choose which one is more appealing to look at. For as long as your conscience is clear and you’re not hurting anyone, go right ahead.
No time to be self-righteous. I’m not perfect, none of us are. I’ve done a bunch of things I should regret, but I’ve realized how hard it is to move forward and it affects those who want to be part of my life. It’s not an easy exercise, mind you, but it’s doable.
I wish everyone all that they need. As well as the things they want.
