Life... And love...

Just contemplating life in general - it's something we all do, I just tend to do it more frequently than most.

I'm considering putting photos on both the blog and the profile. Not sure yet, but we've had requests, so this should clear up any questions as to whether the other half and I are real people.

There are a couple of people here in our area who will get a glimpse before we post them, quite simply because they've asked for them for a while, and I haven't had any decent photos of him - I'm taking them in the next couple of days and will be working on them, so keep an eye out!!!

As far as life in general goes, right now it's really, really slow. Still exploring the area, and still think that it's the most beautiful place I've ever lived. Even the busier parts of town have that kind of sleepy-eyed feeling. Feels kind of like a lazy Sunday morning - nothing that has to be done, no-one coming over, just very quiet, very peaceful. I think that's what we've needed for quite some time... Just to be able to relax in an environment that's not full of negative attitudes... Time to take a deep breath and actually think about what we want out of life.

Starting to finally relax, rather than trying to rush into everything headlong. It's taken a long time to get to this place in life, and it's definitely been a hard road, sometimes. Regrets about the journey? Not really. I do wonder, sometimes, what might have been, in other places, with other people... But I can't regret what has happened.

Everything that has happened has happened for a reason, and has led us to where we are now, and has made us who we are, for better or for worse. Are we stronger for it? Definitely. Are we better people for it? We cannot judge that - that is a decision for others to make about us.

I do know that I, myself, have been able to spread my wings here like I have never been able to in the past, and am changing on a daily basis. The unforgettable past is no longer a source of pain, but is rather a wellspring of information and emotions, both good and bad, that I can drink from when I need both encouragement and caution.

It gets hard to remember pain and loss when you remove yourself from the source. It gets hard to remember life (and love) in the past when the future suddenly changes, and a new life, in the form of change, presents itself to you...

Do you welcome change, or do you deny it, and attempt to stay where you are in life, no matter the cost?

I am always looking for new experiences. I am always trying to find something to do that frightens me. Life is nothing without fear.

Personally, I love change and look for it on a regular basis. However, those around me often wish I would slow it down a little. Change is like renewal for me...also, when I get new information, I'm not afraid to change direction....hey, that makes me a flip-flopper...I love flip-floppers, at least they recognize new information and are able to admit mistakes and move on...not like a certain leader we have. LOL Skier

Hmmmm... Kind of depends on the flip-flopping being done. If it's political, it can be frustrating as hell to see the people you elected backing out of promises... In real life (I don't really consider politics real-life any longer, it's more like a Mexican soap opera, lately) flip-flopping is kind of expected as we learn new and different things every day. As long as you're not overturning your values and beliefs on a daily basis - it tends to confuse people!! {=}

Change for the sake of change gets old and really isn't worth the effort - but - to learn new information and decide that what or where you are is not where or who you want to be any longer - that is when I believe change is required - and learning is life. People who have known me for long periods of time tell me that I generally re-invent myself about every 6-7 years - if I look back at old pictures - I can tell you it's true. In the past 5 years - I have re-invented myself 3 times - one just very recently - and I am looking forward to the next time - as the years pass it seems that I feel the need to change much quicker - maybe I am hoping that if I keep re-inventing myself - the grim reaper will have a harder time finding me.

Brightest Blessings regarding your changes !

Time seems like it speeds up for me as I get older!!! Changing for the sake of change - why not? From something as simple as a change in hairstyle and/or color or as complex as a change of residency, it seems to me that it's a part of the learning process to make changes in our lives. Points of view change all the time. I can't see you becoming rigid in your own life, though!!!

May She bless the paths your feet choose to take... {=}
