Coming To TermsThis single thought has plagued my mind for so many years now.
And to it I say: so what.
I am tired of all the expectations, of what I "should have been", or what I might have been. It's depressing and keeping me in a steel cage of sadness.
I am here and now. I live and breathe. Sure, I am absolutely wasting away years of education, certifications and training.
But... I can still stand out in the sun in the morning and let its warmth bathe my face and realize: I am not facing the intense pain of heartache or a lost loved one or child or abuse or any of the other things that the brave people in this world often face.
I might not be moving through life as I thought I would ... but I am alive and I should be thankful for that, and I should try to enjoy what it has to offer.
