Introductions can be awkward right? Can we pretend that I’ve been on this site for years? 😋 So, I’m going to jump right into it, over time I’ll get used to this.
It’s the end of June and summer has officially started as I write this. Unlike last year with COVID in play which really is something for the history books, its getting better but for me this has made me appreciate this small little world that I live in, and care about the people I love. This year I’ve been traveling for bit and although some of it was for work, some of it was for pleasure, it’s been nice for a change.
When I went to Austin for work, I found this spot by the Barton Springs during my spare time and I just sat there for most of the day, enjoying the water, the weather was good. I was just thinking about my life, my priorities which seem to be changing often. I’m thinking about long-term goals, like where do I want to be, what does my future career look like, and who do I want to be with? Maybe I’m in the clouds when it comes to relationships but one thing I keep thinking about is the eventuality of being with someone I love. I feel like I’ll rediscover life in whole new perspective and I’m ready for that, I’ve just got to find that one of kind “someone”.
After a weekend in Austin and a couple of plane flights later to Twin Falls, I planned a little trip up the snake river to see Shoshone Falls with my brothers. I wanted to celebrate my youngest brother’s birthday and who recently graduated with a Doctor of Pharmacy. He’s already got a job lined up, and he’ll be moving! He’ll be a full day’s drive away, So while we where in the snake river kayaking I was thinking about his life, and how he really is just getting started at it. Living on his own and working into a career that he studied for, its just really interesting seeing him being an “adult” and leaving the area to be on his own.
Thinking about what I’ve done for ten years of working and living on my own, its made me reflect on me, am I doing everything I want to do? I remember when I left the comfort of my childhood home I started to discover, explore, grow on my own, and sometimes the “I know everything” attitude would show up too…but what 20 something year old doesn’t do that?
So I wish for my brother, explore, discover, get out of your comfort zone and find what you are looking for, years later its perfectly fine to change your mind or start thinking about your next move in this game of life. I’m in that situation today but that’s the point of living in this changing world of ours.
The whole “coming out” in my late 20s, kind of had me reinvent myself, or more rather be myself. I’ll never forget that moment and people who have had an impact on me and I guess its those moments that I enjoy the most in my life, the type that change your life forever, the people that make you question, and make you change the status quo. So welcome year thirty let’s see where this goes… and welcome you, to this site, my life!
