I’d Like To Say I Took A Ton Of Amazing Pictures The Whole Time I’ve Been Away… I Haven’t.

Well holy crap.  Who would have thought I would be leaving my blog again once I was finally back in the habit of writing a bit more frequently?  Definitely not me.  However, sometimes things happen and that’s just the way it is.  At least I’m not dead and could get back to it eventually right?

Truth is, it was my last computer that died and me, being the picky person that I am, couldn’t handle blogging from my phone.  Needless to say, I couldn’t bring myself to blog from it at all.  Hell, I can barely even reply to text messages these days.  Plus, there is something about the way one chooses to go about writing something.  It’s a whole experience you know? Or maybe you don’t, and that’s okay too.  Not saying I am a mastermind, genius of a writer or anything, but there is something to the whole experience.  Honestly, my favourite way to write is by hand but keyboard would be second best.  Typing is satisfying and also a good way to get the mind flowing, with the clackety-clacking of the buttons and such.  Plus you can type and edit faster this way, which is a bonus in my books.

Why did it take me so long to get a new computer you ask?  It’s silly really.  I probably could have taken care of this issue much sooner but I just wasn’t ready.  I’d like to think I am a person of ‘timing’ but I’m not so sure I can go as far to say that, though I am quite particular in the time I choose to do things; especially when it comes to making a purchase.

The other day, things lined up.  I found a nice little laptop that I wasn’t compromising with.  It has everything that I was after and a nice price tag too, so I took the jump and brought it home.

As far as pictures go (I think the title for this piece says something about them, does it not?), I wasn’t as motivated to take pictures with nowhere to upload to… which I am kicking myself over now.  Sure I took pictures here and there on my phone but those don’t really count as far as I am concerned.  My camera was brought out a couple of times but it spent most of its time, during the last couple years, collecting dust.  I’ll see what I’ve got though and I may make a little album dedicated to my time of “Lost Ideas”… yeah, that’s what we’ll call this gap haha.  Not that ALL of my ideas were lost, but most of them were.

I can’t wait to write more again and see what crazy things my mind decides to create.  It’s been a while and who knows what’s stored away up there. Anyways, here’s to ‘timing’ and getting back into writing again!

 

And oh yeah, I got a dog somewhere along the way.  This is Sampson.

Something Made Me Feel Inspired Today

Over half a century later and this is still so very relevant to what is going on today. I fear that our mistakes have continued to repeat themselves as we shut our ears to the truth that refuses to be heard and somehow we have found ourselves tolerant to the ways things are, and forgetting the way that things should be.

I would like to hope that soon, enough will be enough so that we can all come together and make the changes we wish to see in our world.

It is nice to be comfortable, but to thrive in life is fulfilling and wonderful.

Reminiscing

It’s chilly out, and all I wish is to be knee-deep in the grass again.

Thankfully, spring is right around the corner.  Which means that there will be a ton of pictures to be taken and inspiration to be found!  I am so excited to see what this summer has in store.

Thankful #12

I am thankful for my birthday.  I don’t like birthdays much but I do still believe that they are worth being thankful for.  This day makes me thankful to be alive and reminds me to look back on all that I have been through in the years prior, and take those lessons with me into my next year of life.

Happy birthday to me 🙂

Rambling Nonsense on a Friday Night

DSCN5509

Sometimes it can feel like you are floating through life; the expectations that others have for you, weighing heavy on your thoughts.  You don’t know where you are going, and maybe only have a faint idea of where you would like to go but that isn’t good enough.  It’s not good enough for the hungry questions they keep asking you.  It’s not enough for the questioning and sometimes disappointed looks in their eyes.  According to them, you never made it and they feel responsible.  They feel responsible for some sick and selfish reason, that honestly has nothing to do with them.

Honesty aside, it possibly does have something to do with them.  If they weren’t always trying to steer you in the “right” direction and their expectations weren’t burning holes into you at night, then maybe you would have had a better idea of what YOU actually want.  Maybe, you might actually already be where you want to be (or maybe it would be easier to realize that you are there already).  It doesn’t matter if you have some big title, fancy house, and/or a wife and three kids.  No, it doesn’t matter if you have all your money organized, and put away into pretty little accounts, so you can go away on weekends.  It doesn’t matter if you fit into this nice little box of what it means to be an adult. None of that matters, unless it truly matters to YOU and you alone.

If you’re happy working odd jobs, travelling the world and living in your car…  being colourful or quiet or weird. If you dropped out of college because it just didn’t feel right… or if you never went at all, because you just couldn’t seem to fathom it, though everyone kept telling you that’s where you ought to be… If you’re happy with how you have chosen to move forward in life, then stop being unhappy because other people think that you should be.

Stop wasting time, waiting for the future that others have planned for you.  Go out there and just be you.  You don’t owe anyone a single thing.  There’s only one person you owe, and that person is yourself.  You owe yourself the motivation to do what is right for you, and the strength to stand by that.  You owe yourself kind words of support and optimism.  You owe yourself the chance to get off of the hamster wheel and to go to where you feel the most yourself.  You don’t really owe yourself much, but it’s worth a lifetime.
