Some of you bloggers out there know that awkward moment when you read the first post you ever did (next to your “about me” page,) and its been two years.
Yep, I finally reread the “My passion” post.
I was afraid it’d be really immature sounding, but aside from a few things, and grammar mistakes, I actually am pretty satisfied with it still.
It just goes to show when you set a theme for yourself, you tend to stick to it, subconsciously.
I am one of those fortunate people who can merely think that they need to wake up early tomorrow, and then they’ll do it automatically before the alarm goes off. (I hate being woken by an alarm, so I wake up naturally as a subconscious defense, in my opinion.)
I think a blog theme is kind of like that. Even while yo’re unaware of it, your thoughts are veering in that direction.
I do think it was a smart decision to let go of my today’s truth: ending. It was kind of corny.
Anyway, that’s all in retrospect.
I am just glad that I have no regrets aobut starting this blog after two years and a quarter.
How many things do we start in life and then wish we hadn’t? or we wish we waited longer?
I could name a few off the top of my head.
I can’t write long today because I have to get to the DMV and retake the Written test. Fun I know.
But I really think five years from now I’m going to be glad it took me so many tries to get something as simple as a Driver’s License. It’ll be such an encouragement to my children to hear that their mom flunked something that many times. (I’ll probably be that mom who had all those impressive sounding accomplishments to tell about, but if I’m wise, I’ll make sure to tell them about my failures too.)
I can’t tell you how much better it made me feel to know other adults I know failed the first time…not the second and third I grant you, though my Grandma knew someone once who failed over and over again because of some dumb equipment on the test.
Anyway, like I said, I have to go soon. But those are my thoughts for the day. Trial and Error is my motto at this point.
And parents, please tell your kids the things you used to suck at and got better, it’s super inspirational.
Kids, ask your parents. It’s very enlightening.
And I just have to say the cliche:
“If at first you don’t succeed, blame modern technology–I mean, try, try again.
Tis a lesson we should heed, try, try again.”
