Of all the things I should be writing right now, this blog entry is pretty far down on the list in terms of importance, so I’ll keep it short and simple.
I was re-reading some of my old blog entries circa 2007 – 2008 (ages 18 – 19) a little while ago and they made me some very odd combination of nostalgic for who I used to be and grateful for who I am today. Strolling backwards through my life also made me astutely aware of the fact that future doesn’t always bring improvement in life; moving forward in time isn’t guaranteed to wash away the things one doesn’t like about him or herself. In fact, certain aspects of who and what we are can denigrate if we aren’t constantly putting effort in maintaining and then exceeding our level in any number of areas.
There’s a lot more I could say about this topic, but I have homework calling my name.
