There is a lot that could be said about this year. A lot has happened, but it feels like I’m back in the same place where I started. It’s just, I’m not too sure which “starting place” I’m speaking of.
Am I back where I was at this time last year? I don’t think so! I just can’t exactly remember where I even was at this time a year ago. I’m pretty sure I was too disoriented to make it a memorable occasion. I’m pretty sure things weren’t too great. I started blogging shortly after that time.
It was a last-ditch effort.
I guess sometimes last-ditch efforts are worth the effort.
I’m always hoping to make my life worth the effort it takes from everyone involved in keeping me afloat.
Maybe afloat isn’t too great a descriptor. It doesn’t really specify whether I am floating face up or down and in the case that I might just be staying afloat face down, my condition might not actually be so great.
Same with grounded.
Maybe I should just make it clear about my condition as I stand today and say my thank you’s to the world that I’m ALIVE.
I’m happy to be alive. Even on the bad days (95% of myself agrees with me.)
The other 5% is just a tantrum within me speaking of worthlessness, and I know it’s not really true.
I’m really 100% (at least!) happy to be alive. But I am always striving toward living my life better, purposefully.
I’d really rather never die. Not even ever.
But I’m ok with it whenever it comes….I just hope it doesn’t for a long time.
Wow, this isn’t really going where I was trying to go.
Such is living life as me.
My life takes me places I never could have imagined or planned.
I do make choices, I know, but sometimes me staying alive requires a whole lot of me letting go and trusting things I’m doing, even when I have no idea what I’m doing.
Like now, writing.
I wanted to say some words. But there will never be enough words, or efficient or sufficient enough ones. I guess that’s why I like making things that don’t rely on words so much.
I probably should get back into poetry. Where words are words but not words at all.
It seems to sum up where I am and where I have been this year, all that has happened on the private, personal and public level, there is just no way to do it.
No other way than to keep living since I am still here…Where I started.
Making note of it because a lot can change so fast.
