They say that Spring is the time of changes. Well, they don’t kid around very much I guess. I returned home from SXSW full of inspiration, and I had no idea how much I had let my life and myself get off of the track I meant for it to be on. I had somehow lost track of who I wanted to be. The wakeup call that it took to get me to realize this was the most bitter pill I have ever swallowed. My girlfriend of almost six years left me. I’m heartbroken, because I’m still very much in love with her.
My life is about to change in some major ways. My priorities are much clearer to me than they were only a few weeks ago, and I recognize that there is much work to do if I’m ever going to be the person I truly want to become. If you are reading this, ask yourself if you are an active participant in your life. Ask yourself if you are telling those around you how you feel about them. Ask yourself what you could do to make things better in your relationships. I sure wish I had been asking myself those questions a few weeks ago.
