Today, is Tuesday. It is out of my control what day of the week it is. Those are the facts. They are unchangeable.
I think this type of concept comes hard to many. I do believe that we all struggle dealing with the fact that there are things in this world that we cannot control. For me, I think that is one of the hardest lessons to learn and probably a fault of mine that I will carry until I take my last breath. I don’t say that proudly… and I wish that I could say good-bye to my constant need to be ‘master and commander’, but at the same time, I know that it is a huge part of who I am.
Sometimes as I consider all of these factors, I realize how different it is processing this concept myself versus hearing it from someone else. Typically, my first thoughts are, “I don’t do that. That is not me.” Why is that always our first reaction? I wish I had the answer to that.
My first blog might sound incredibly morose and maybe a little cliché but I’d like to think that some can still relate. I can confidently say that the content, tone and style of my blogs will never be consistent but I will promise that my words will only serve to speak my truth.
Also, master and commander is pretty catchy. I’m pretty sure it’s also a Russel Crowe movie, but I wouldn’t mind calling myself Master and Commander.
Until next time.
