I feel something coming. I think it’s adulthood. WOW! What a reality check for me lately. I really, really, really (X3) realized that I’m not a kid anymore. I have some real responsibilities, commitments, and obligations to myself, my family, and friends. I’m rediscovering what I went back to school for, and now I’m growing the-fuck up.
This break has been truly outstanding for me! It’s giving me time to reassess my goals, plan for the future, and really think about how I want to spent the rest of my life. School now just seems more or less like a wrap up and after all this school business is done, it’s seriously “GO” time. It’s created a very positive change in me.
Looking back and realizing that I should have done this a long time ago isn’t regret, it’s progress. I blame reading a lot of personal-power books and articles for this sudden shift of ideals and attitude. I have conceived a new-found honesty and humility; a mantra of singing glory. I just finished How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie, Never Eat Alone by Keith Ferrazi, and chewed up Mike Zimmerman’s Man piece in Men’s Health March entitled Why Men Fail. I’ve been feeling the same hypersuccessfulness that Zimmerman reports on, and because of this, also a feeling of resurgence of youth.
Surely, I know this is just a high for now and this too shall pass, but that’s the greatest thing–I get to see it for the first time through the eyes of experience. I’m a young soul, so for me, this had to happen in order for me to learn much.
I’m so free and I’m on fire! Boomshakalaka!
