I am am who I am...
I’ll never forget the day that I realized that even the best of intentions is sometimes not enough. Life happens, whether we want it to or not. It is the human condition to make mistakes. How people react when faced with adversity is a great measure of the resilience of a soul. I like to think that with an old poet’s soul I’ve become seasoned at recovering from the inevitable blunders that will find their way to me. Yet as times grow increasingly weary, I find myself reminded of the fact that it takes a robust frame of mind to maintain a positive outlook, especially when there are bound to be plenty of bumps in the road. I may be hopelessly and eternally optimistic, but as I go along my way, with each bump I grudgingly endure I become a little more cynical. How is that possible? I don’t grow less hopeful or less optimistic. The amount of child-like curiosity and wonder that I possess in my core does not diminish. Yet as I gain experience I also gain more of an acrimonious disposition that rears its ugly head whenever I find the path I’m on has become tediously rough to the point where monotony feels like a way of life rather than a temporary condition that is bound to pass. Could it be that as we live and learn that the soul not only evolves, changes, and adapts, but it also grows? When I get that bitter taste of doubt, I find that the only cure is to reconnect with my incessant inner child that never lets me forget that life is not meant to be taken too seriously. Whether I make a daring change, take a humble risk, go on a little adventure, indulge my curiosity, exercise my creativity, or take the time to enjoy the simple things in life, it always does the trick. I find myself remembering that I’ll be just fine and things have a way of working themselves out. That’s the beauty of life. Even when you stumble and fall, it can be a blessing in disguise. Mistakes just might have even more potential than achievements. It is the choice to learn from a mistake that enhances the human condition.
