The month of walks down memory lane is over, and I’ve made more than a few interesting notions. Not really sure what to do with most of them yet, but I guess I will figure it out eventually.
It’s been fairly interesting, to say the least, to meet and greet people from various parts of your past. I’ve found it to be extremely true that there usually is a reason why some from your past won’t make it to your future, but also, as I’ve stated earlier, that if the friendship is sincere, it doesn’t matter how long ago you saw each other last. I’ve absolutely loved fooling around like a maniac with people I once knew well, but hardly ever see these days, due to life taking us in opposite directions. And I’ve felt extremely good walking away from situations I can finally say I’ve left behind.
But then of course, there’s been the odd epiphanies. You all know these. The ones that for some reason are so damned hard for you to see yourself, even though they seem crystal clear to everyone else. Even though people keep hinting it (or telling you bluntly for that matter), you just cannot see the forest for the trees.
Until one day you open your eyes and realise what’s been hiding in plain sight right in front of you. And you have absolutely no idea what to do with your new-found knowledge. Some insights are reasonably easy to address, others so complicated you decide to go completely Scarlet O’Hara on them, and think about them tomorrow. After all, tomorrow’s another day.
People change. Circumstances change. And most importantly, the way you look at the world changes.
I can’t but wonder what next…
