Reflecting on life…
Since I’ve moved to St. Louis this past October, I have learned a lot about myself. I had foolishly thought that I knew a little bit about what is like to live away from home, since I had attended college out of state. So when I had officially moved to Missouri, I was surprised by the things that happened to my general thought process and attitude towards life.
Looking back now it seems like it was a huge change to my general way of life, but in the moment it didn’t seem that bad, or even that significant—I was just doing what I felt that I needed to do at the time. Perhaps it is because there was so much that I had to figure out about myself that I just wound up exploring everything I could (it also helped that I had a decent amount of money saved up which allowed me to do so).
Now, things seem slower, but in a methodical way rather than a sluggish one. I am still looking for a full time job, but I feel that I am making good progress on that each new day, however, it is difficult doing this while having a serving job, relationship trouble, bills, and all that other nonsense that life seems to toss our way. But I have to say that I am happy with myself. I am still on the path that I set out from just about a year ago, which is to start my professional life, and will not quit until I do.
In the past year, I have met some fantastic people who have been very helpful in keeping my spirits up when I could otherwise been depressed. And at the end of the day, even the bad ones, I still feel like I am doing the right thing, and that I will make it in this world. All I have to do is keep working hard, and not quit.
Anyways, that’s all I have for now. If you’re still reading thanks! I’ll try to write again soon.
