Only On The Outside

I feel like Benjamin Button, watching as friends and family do everything I did a decade ago, whilst I'm going back to school. I have thought many times recently about whether I have made the right decision. Life is defined by it's opportunities.. even the ones you miss! I could have attended university when I was a teenager, I didn't though because higher education didn't receive the exposure then and because I couldn't be told anything. I'm not about to imply that I had a difficult childhood, everyone experiences adolescence, peer pressure and challenging situations that contribute to character building. Some people, were born to sit by a river. Some get struck by lightning. Some have an ear for music. Some are artists. Some swim. Some know buttons. Some know Shakespeare. Some are mothers. And some people, dance. I'm all of the above, with the exception of being a mother. Alan Garner: "It would be so cool if I could breast-feed." Our great war may be a spiritual war but I'm closer to understanding what I'm supposed to be doing! I'm not going to take anything for granted, I don't know where I will be in three years but I'm sure I will still be writing this blog. My biggest fear at the moment is losing those that are most important. Apparently; we're meant to lose the people we love. How else would we know how important they are to us?
