I have learned a lot in the last few years. I learned that people you thought would always be in your life tend to fade out. But not in a bad way, they just are there one minute and gone the next. They taught you what you needed to know and served their purpose. I learned that raw emotion is good when you’re young, but doesn’t fit when you have a toddler. Toddlers don’t care that you want to do your art.
The biggest thing I have learned, is that in life, things happen in increments.
1.an increase or addition, especially one of a series on a fixed scale.“the inmates’ pay can escalate in five-cent increments to a maximum of 90 cents an hour”
synonyms: increase, addition, supplement, gain, augmentation, accretion,addendum; More
Or very small increments, and this is as it should be. The reason being, if I had the kind of life I had now when I was in my twenties I would not have been able to handle it. I would have screwed up my life and the lives of others. Everything has a balance, a flow you might say. The life you are living now may not be what you think you should be living, but it is! It is the one you are suppose to be living because any other life would not work at this moment in your time. You are not ready yet for what comes next. You have to live a little, experience this life right now, to become ready, and willing, for the things that life has in store for you. Your ideal life is coming, it is a slow process for a reason. If you need an example of people who did not live there life in increments, check out any tabloid the next time you are buying groceries.
It needs to happen in increments to make it right. Take it slow, learn, and make it right.
