Not long ago it was summer, going on autumn. I started writing this blog for the fun of it (I still write for the fun of it 😛 ) and soon it’s been six months since I first started posting. Six months, as in half a year!
When you’re talking about the future it always seems so distant and far away. Like it’ll never appear really. And then, all of a sudden – *poof* and you’re there! I turn twentythree this year. It feels very odd, even though I knew (as everybody does, if you’re not unfortunate enough to die that is..) I was gonna get this old one day, but now that I’m almost there it feels like there must’ve been a miscalculation somewhere.. surely I cannot be 23? I still feel like.. well a kid.
At least in some aspects, I still have a wild imagination, I still love being creative in a childlike way and I love things like playing with lego and so on. But in other ways, of course I have changed a lot since I was a child. I understand things on a different level, I have matured (I’d like to think haha) and am at the doorstep of my lifelong future as an adult. But sometimes it just doesn’t feel like it. Sometimes it feels like you’re still playing in that sandbox. 😛
I wonder what it’ll feel like when I get really old – how much younger than I am will I feel like? How much wiser will I be? I don’t know. I don’t know anything about the future, none of us do. We can think and believe a lot of things about the future but we can never fully have control of how our future will be or what will happen in our lives. I guess that’s why it is so important to mind what you’re doing now. Are you living your life as you want to live it? Do you pay attention to the important things? Everything is fleeting, both material things and the people you love. So what would you rather put most effort into? The things you own or wish to own or the people you love?
I know what I’m striving for. Even though, like everybody else, I want a job that I like, a home to live in and so on – that is not the most important. My friends and my family are. A low paid job, a tiny apartment etc. – these things I can handle – but losing or neglecting my loved ones? I could never live with that. I am blessed with many wonderful people in my life and I intend on keeping them and continue to nurture my relationships. 🙂
Want a music tip guys? Of course you do 🙂 It suits todays topic.
