It’s been a long time since I’ve written a blog and I feel like I should at least come and say hello and let you know that I haven’t stopped my journey of self-awakening and discovery. I’m still here. The last 12 months have been a difficult yet enlightening experience for me and it has kind of derailed me a little, but I feel as if I’m now on my way to getting back on track. Change is difficult and so is accepting that you need to change in more ways than you expected or wanted. When we go on a new journey, it’s good to prepare ourselves for what’s ahead of us and this is hard, because how can we prepare for the unknown? I knew that there would be bumps in the road but I hadn’t really thought about how I’d react when I came across them. I’ll be honest; I genuinely thought that I’d approach at a steady speed and I’d glide over them with ease, but I hadn’t figured how big these bumps could get and how much damage they could cause if hit too fast. So after going in to the garage and having a service and some repairs to the body work, I feel as If it’s time I got back on the road again – but this time it’s with lessons learned and a better understanding of not only myself, but of the world we live in. When I first started, I was full of excitement and hope of what was ahead of me, and I still am, but this time around I’m approaching it with more respect than before – and when I say respect, I really mean respect. The one thing I’ve learned is that I’m not always right and that being honest is the only way to truly be, because nobody knows everything – in fact, we all know very little, yet we hold on to our opinions and beliefs as though they were gospel. My friends, let me enlighten you: they are not! And that can be a tough pill to swallow, even for the most open-minded of us, and if you are honest with yourself then you’ll agree. Anyway, onwards and upwards from this day forward, know when to slow down and recharge the batteries and be willing to compromise if the road ahead is blocked or impassable. Thanks for taking time out and reading my rambling, please come back and keep in touch with my growth.
