Wandering through life

I’ve been wandering through life for some 36 1/2 years now. I think I had blinders on between 6th grade and age 31. As I have been maturing and growing, meeting new people who open new avenues of life up to me, I have been starting to get to know myself a little better.

I feel so sad that I went through life so narrowly focused for so long. I am now experiencing new things that are really opening my eyes, and meeting new people who I would normally avoid and opening myself to their beliefs and trying to understand, while still holding onto my own beliefs. It is a tricky wire to walk, but I am starting to learn how to balance myself.

I am meeting new people more and more often, and I am so appreciative of that. I appreciate my friends greatly and I hope they know that. My friends help me grow and I hope in some small way, I help them grow as well.

I pray that as I continue to wander through life, I notice more of the scenery nature has to offer while keeping a trained sense on the path I am taking.
