It Only Gets Better From Here

I kind of feel like ever since my 29th birthday, I've been in this weird accelerated learning process when it comes to life and especially relationships (I don't mean romantic ones but just relationships in general). I've learned more in the past 6 months than I have learned in my entire life... and I finally have a sense of closure, a sense of knowing exactly what it is I want out of my life and exactly what is acceptable/unacceptable when it comes to my relationships with others. I just kind of wish this process had hit me sooner so I would have had a lot more time to spend on going the "right way" instead of spending 10 years of my adult life wasting everything I had to give on people that didn't deserve it and were never going to pay it back or pay it forward.

Lessons in 11

When you live near the beach, you learn at a very early age that when caught in an undertow, you never swim against the current, but with it. You ride that bitch out until it ends instead of trying to struggle against it. Life is a lot like that. Karma is a lot like that. I feel there are too many people in the world that think that through metaphysical understanding they can change the flow of the current... or gain the strength to swim against it... and you can't. Nature always wins. All you can do is swim with it... ride it out... see where you land... and go from there. There's an old saying my grandma used to tell me: "don't count your chickens before they hatch." No matter how many numbers you crunch... no matter how much you follow the paths of the stars and planets... you can't change their course or their effect in the end. All you can do is take what they give you and go with the flow.... it's like being handed a limited number of paint colors and brush sizes with a canvas... everyone's colors and brush sizes are different... making it impossible for someone to change the outcome of their painting, much less to copy the painting of another person... yet, everyone has the ability to create a masterpiece with what they are given...
