Amidst the many political posts, a couple of which I’ve posted myself. It’s time to recognize that life does still in fact go on. As shaken up as we’ve become and as crazy as things have gotten, I still go through the motions of everything I did before. The only difference now, where I stand on it all. Ready to make real change in this world as a different type of person before this election is simplifying things at best. With that being said…
I like many, am still in a phase of life in which I’ve yet to accomplish what I want. Whether it be that life is just hard most times or that maybe I’m missing the boat on the chances I need to take, I’m a work in progress slowly and surely moving forward.
Spending the majority of the last decade in love with the wrong person, I’ve finally gotten enough space and time away and that’s an understatement. I’ve finally left a life I never truly wanted for myself and have made a stand to change. I’ve been changing surely for months looking back from time to time thinking, “what the hell am I doing,” but also remembering, “oh yeah going after the life and the future you want.” Leaving everything you know in hopes that something will work out is a huge risk to say the least. However, it’s a risk I’ve personally taken multiple times. Why? Because try, try again. That being said, I still haven’t “made it.” But for the first time in a very long time, I am totally and completely content with who I am, what I believe and where I stand on almost everything in my life, my world.
Having to admit there are a lot of moving pieces to life, I have to say all of us are figuring things out bit by bit. The thing about life is it’s very much a puzzle and until the puzzle is seemingly finished the picture doesn’t reveal itself. This can be said in so many ways. On so many things. We are people. We are individuals. No two stories totally the same. No one less important than the other for the sheer fact that we effect each other. Life goes on.
We may all believe different things, we may all want different things, but our goals tend to stem from the same place. Whether you’re black, white, Asian, Mexican, Latino/a, European, Indian, etc I can’t believe the things we want branch off too much further than having a chance at life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
