What I Think

25 05 2010

We sometimes worry so much about what other people think, we ask and wonder, but is it really that important? I believe that the most important thing is what we think, about ourselves, about our choices, about our present circumstances. Instead of looking outside of us to find where should we go or what should be do we should look within. What is it that help us feel come and content, what provides happiness and gladden our hearts? We use to be like that and then little by little we started looking outside more than within. Instinct, we need to get in touch with it. There is always something that let us know what to do or not but we need to be in tune to ourselves, not others.

I noticed how what I wanted ten years ago is not what I want now, but there is a big struggle to untangle myself of everything that conveys my life right now. It takes time to make changes, to make adjustments, to let others know that you are no longer the same person they got so accustomed to. I guess in that regard we are always evolving and we should not assume that everything and everyone will remain the same. It is work, dedication, an innate interest to continue to grow and nurture the other or to be content to be by yourself. I wish it would be easy, I wish it would not be this painful but it is the way it is. I’m not sure if you can understand this reflection today, all I know is that this is the way I think today, the emotions that well out of my soul at this moment in time.

How do you think? What do you feel? Is there something nagging at you for some reason?

You have hit the nail on the head here Clary. It is a part of growing. Though there are exceptions as always, our priorities change as we go through life. Things that were important to us at age 5 don’t seem so important at age 25; and those things that are important at 25 don’t always seem so important at age 40; and so on.

It seems with each traumatic event our priorities become more focussed on another direction. That trauma could be surgery or an accident/injury; it could be the loss of a loved one; the loss of a job held for many years; a divorce. All of these “Life events” cause us to question where we are, and what we wish to achieve as we move ahead.
