SUNDAY SCRIBBLINGS

The prompt for this week is NEW.


What's NEW in my life? Hmmm.

I've done many things this past year I swore I would never do. Some good, some bad. When I look around, I notice my surroundings haven't changed much but I see everything in a different light. What's new in my life is me.

Trouble is, I don't feel brand new, I often feel old and tired. This new me requires much maintenance and attention or she could slip back into her old ways. At times I want to turn back the clock and return to the safety of the girl I used to know but every action we take changes us and we can never go back. All I can do is move forward and accept the things I have done and the person I have become. Is this a good or a bad thing? Only time will tell.

Moving forward is our only option...one step at a time. And I can relate to the feeling 'old and tired' part! lol. Lovely read.

the new is always scary... A friend of mine once told me to fake confidence until it became a reality :)

You could start walking and driving backwards everywhere. Don't know if it will work but it's worth a try!

KB said...

Nazish - Yes it does :)

KB said...

Don't plan on going backwards Keith...onwards and upwards.

I guess being new has got to have the elastic band attached to the past, otherwise we forget where we came from.

In the words of the old Rod Stewart song- "I wish I knew then what I know now, when I got older..."

change is always hard. the easy way didn't make you happy. don't stop now. My dad had a saying "steady by jerks". sometimes progress is hard to see. god luck

We can never know how are choices will affect our future until the future gets here - stupid paradox if you ask me, but there it is! We just do the best we can and have faith.

Karen, life teaches us we define and redefine who we are with each passing year. Some of use get better at living, like wine gets better with time. You my friend, are like that, you get better and wiser as you take care of you.

KB said...

So many words of wisdom. Thank you.

floreta said...

all we can do is go on.

It's one step at a time. You writing reflects much of what I'm currently feeling and thoughts I'm chewing on. "New" and change is both exhilarating and terrifying lol.
