It surprises me how often I run out of things to say. Because I am a talker. Like the kind of talker who talks non-stop, for hours on end if you will listen, about anything and everything and sometimes even about nothing at all. I very rarely sit in silence…except when I am writing (but that is just another version of talking, isn’t it?).
However, it seems that I often run out of things to talk about in my blog space. Yes, I do have a list of topics I want to address, but right now none of those topics are interesting enough to me. Even as I am attempting to draft this post about having nothing to say, I am finding it immensely difficult to concentrate and focus. It could just be lack of motivation. Or lack of inspiration. Or I have a million other things going on that are occupying my mind and my energy. Or perhaps it is the 3 year old rambling non-stop in my left ear that is making the task at hand near impossible.
So I have decided that when I run out of things to say, I will start recycling some bits from old posts. Last October, I wrote a post about 39 Lessons I Have Learned. You can read the entire post here. Today, I will share the first five.
1. I have learned that people do not fit into neat little packages, including myself. It is okay to be a creative combination of many things, to have many facets to your personality, to have many different and sometimes even conflicting likes and dislikes. And that doesn’t make the package defective, it only makes it a more interesting package.
2. I have learned that it is okay to be wrong. But it is also important to apologize to those affected by your mistakes and try to right yourself the next time.
3. I have learned that it is okay to change your mind, your beliefs, your opinions, your tastes, and your priorities. Human beings are not static creatures. We are ever-evolving based on our experiences. It is supposed to be this way.
4. I have learned that as my mind, beliefs, opinions, tastes, and priorities change so will the nature of my relationships with other people.
5. I have learned that all relationships need to be re-evaluated every now and again. Sometimes that will make the relationship stronger or it may just change the relationship and take it in a different direction. But sometimes, it may lead to the end of a relationship. And that, too, is okay. We are not meant to remain close with every single person we meet in our lives for the rest of time. In fact, that would be quite impossible anyway.
