Sometimes the best way to “uncomplicate” your life is by looking at it from the outside-in. Taking the third person approach and becoming the omniscient narrator of your own life will give you a different kind of clarity. If you take yourself out of the moment, you are able to analyze it a little better. This weekend I was able to do just that. I discovered what has been bothering me, I’ve noticed how I’ve been acting towards other people, and I’ve been able to understand exactly what I want out of life.
I have also learnt a very important lesson, anything worth keeping, is worth working hard for. You need to work at every relationship, every friendship, every project, every assignment. When things come too easily you don’t appreciate them as much, and if everything is hunky-dory all of the time, it might not be real. People are meant to challenge you, to push your buttons, and to make you the best person you can be, but you have to let them. You must understand all of your faults and work hard at making them disappear.
On Sunday I went to a graduation party for one of my best friends:
|The Three Stooges (I just gave us that name)
Graduate/Buddy in the middle <3
|Me and Biancs … Friends since GRADE 3!
I forgot how funny she is
|Bianca only LOOKS so tanned because she is standing next to us..
|I love you both!|
|Inside joke .. oh Bianca|
I spent the day laughing, talking, and enjoying some great conversation with really fantastic people. I even ran into a few friends from high school, and was able to talk to them as if it had been just yesterday that we were in school. It’s amazing how great it feels to talk to so many unique, funny, caring, and REAL people. That party was the perfect ending to an intense and over analytical weekend.
The best part about this weekend is the sense of hope it left me with. I feel like good things are around the corner. I don’t know what they are but I plan on enjoying this feeling as much as I can, for as long as it lasts.
