Contradictions

Maybe the contradictions make life interesting?

Needy

I don’t know about the rest of the world, but I do know about me. (Well, I’m still learning about me. I can’t say I’m an expert yet.) I need to learn new things. I need to feel like I’m growing as a person. If I go a bit without, I get antsy, maybe even anxious. I’ve got a busy mind that needs to be focused in a good direction. Learning is a good direction for me. What about you all? What do you do to help improve yourselves?

The Writer’s Life for Me

I don’t want to be famous. That thought terrifies me. The idea of a multitude of people knowing me?! I have trouble functioning around the few I already know! No. I don’t write in hopes of becoming famous. Nor do I think that’s even a possibility. I DO write in the hope that I might be able to change someone’s life in some tiny way. If I can inspire someone to go on, believe in themselves or realize that there are others in the world that feel what they feel, then I will have achieved what I desire. I hope all is well with you, friends. Take care!

Be in the now

I met this girl awhile back, and she reminded me a lot of myself when I was her age. She was quiet, reserved, perhaps a bit anxious. She had a way about her that seemed so familiar. A way that one can only understand if they have lived it themselves. I wanted to tell her that everything turns out OK, and that she could let some of her worries go. I couldn’t bring myself to say these words. I often wonder why I didn’t. Perhaps I didn’t want to deny her the experiences. Perhaps I was too timid to say something so out of the blue and bold. In any event, I put pen to paper what I wish I would have said. Maybe today someone will hear what they need to hear.

First Draft

I make lots of mistakes. Sometimes I place to much importance on how others view my mistakes. I strive everyday to act with kindness and love. I hope that’s how I come across even when I falter. I wrote this to remind myself that this is indeed my life so it’s up to me to choose how to be. At the end of the day, if I can say I was a kind person, then I need to learn to forget what anyone else might think. I did my best. I hope that all of you can reach this conclusion as well. I wish you all the best!
