Growing and Changing

Posted on

I’m like Dr. Who… I tend to regenerate every few years. Last time it happened must have been about six years ago when I decided on a career change and gave up pretty much everything to study animal management full-time. I had time by myself to think and I know at that time in my life I made the right decision even though I didn’t end up pursuing an animal care career. It was great personal development and opened up a whole lot of new opportunities for me. I saw a change in myself during that time, I was more determined and care free and I proved to myself that I could work harder than I had ever worked before. I was happy.

Recently… I would say 3 or 4 months ago, I have been showing signs of growing up. This is something that I had refused point-blank to do in the past, but at the age of 33 I seemed to have given in and accepted that there are some things I need to face. My thoughts have mainly been leaning towards planning for my future, something that I wouldn’t have considered at all earlier on in the year.

I suppose there comes a time when you haven’t got a choice and that then aggravating voice of one of your parents telling you to ‘grow up’ actually starts to make sense. With my new sensible head on my shoulders we shall see what 2014 brings. After all, it’s not very far away now is it!

What Matters Most

Posted on

On much consideration I’ve realised the reason I find it so difficult to open up is purely because I have nothing to open up about. It’s true! I literally have no quarms with life and I am usually pretty happy and laid back. Yes, there are things that annoy and irritate me on occasions but those things are trivial and I feel that moaning about such things will in a way be mocking the people who do have serious problems in their lives.

Of course there are moments from my past that have deeply effected me but I don’t see the point in dragging up the past when I should be looking towards the future, or more importantly the present where the here and now matters more than anything. I now feel better for coming to this conclusion, so personal ramblings may become general chit-chat… and poetry… well poetry stays as poetry and that is what I’m going to be working on today. So hopefully tomorrow will bring my first poetry post that I won’t be using for an e-zine.
