Week 31 – Thankful Tuesdays
I’ve often looked back at life and wondered if there are some core values that guide me as I go about it. The only principle in life that I try to follow is to be myself. That is hard when the factors around are trying to shape me to what they think I should be. It matters to me that I’m casual, fun-loving, and humorous. It doesn’t mean that I’m not serious about my goals, but just that I like to not let the seriousness of life get in the way of being me. I’m talkative, and I love to chat with friends. I’m more at home with friends than with family at times. I try not to let go of friends, unless there’s no other go. I do understand they need their space, but I don’t know when they need it unless they are as vocal as I am I suppose. (Something I need to work on perhaps). I’m determined, and I work toward my goals at my pace. There are those who tell me I’m not where I’m supposed to be, or that I’ve taken too long to get where I am, but when the little things that matter, really matter, then it’s absolutely the right time for me to be where I am. I’m happy, so I know I’m on the right track. I’m thankful for whatever values have become a part of my character, and I hope whatever lies ahead doesn’t bring down those values.
