Labels and Definitions

Never been one for either really, albeit there was a time when that was wanted, maybe even needed. They can be both a help and hindrance, supposedly, given you a spot in life, a niche or group to fill it or fit with.

Pushed too far tho, you’ll end up the cliche.

Supposing a lot of people have them as a badge of sorts as well, not to just self identify by protect their group/herd/clique/pack/tribe/etc.

There are some of these items that are immovable and won’t change or go away, others that will wear down with time and be replaced by others.

Over the course of an entire lifetime, events will change you, and you end up being someone completely different.

The last day you have on earth, the person you became will meet the person you could have become.” -Anonymous

But times change and so must I. We all change, when you think about it. We are all different people all through our lives and that’s okay, that’s good you’ve got to keep moving so long as you remember all the people that you used to be. I will not forget one line of this, not one day, I swear. – Dr Who (Eleven)

Find a blank book

It doesn’t have to be expensive, fancy or large, but find a blank book.

But find a blank book.

Then find a spot to sit, anywhere is good, but a place none the less to think.

Bring music, bring coffee, bring a friend if you really need that too.

But find a blank book.

Here’s the hard part, you’re not going to write about fiction, or fact.

Truths or Lies.

You’re just going to look at yourself, and this part is going to be oh so difficult.

You need to write down all your hopes, challenges and dreams.

The negatives, the failures, the ugly.

Just make sure the book is blank when you start.

Write it all out, take minutes, hours, days.

But not weeks or months, just keep writing.

Kill a few pens, kill a few more.

And then when you have it all down.

Then, and only then, start making a plan to change what you don’t like.

Because everyone changes, whether you realize it or not, whether you keep track or not.

The only difference is, are you surviving, or thriving.

Growing, or receding.

That’s on you.

Just find a blank book.
