The same goes with family. I'm just as close to my moms side as ever before. Other than my dad, stepmom and bro's I don't really see or speak to his side of the family much. I think of them often, but with my grandmother and aunt gone, it's like effort isn't made on either side of the aisle. It's weird, because as I sit here typing this i'm becoming even more aware of how things stay the same. Surroundings may change, faces may change and feelings may change but its ever so slightly and at the end of the day it's actually the same. Does that make sense?
Realizing that things are the same is easy. Breaking out of that cycle is where the true test lies. I suppose, you have to figure out if you actually want to break out. There are times where I'm content with the same ole. It's easier in that zone. Don't get me wrong, I have goals, dreams and aspirations but sometimes I want to skip the work in order to reach them. We all know that's not possible and according to the many who reached their goals without the work you don't feel rewarded.
Anyway, traveling on this hamster wheel has been quite interesting and although I know that life is a cycle that never ends, I'd like to maybe choose to divert a bit and take a jagged edge turn every once in a while. Life isn't worth living if you're not willing to slow down the cycle and choose a path that makes you smile. Just saying. Enjoy today!!
