I am often instructed that friends are the family you make. Though this is true I always feel like reminding the instructor that relationships you build with friends are based on the building skills you learned with your family. Most of the time I don’t bother. I am resolved to work with what I have rather than what could have been and isn’t that an ideal workplace for all of us. I have good friends, though I may not be the best person at being friends, and I love my life, though I can say love can be difficult. I can say I have fought to be the man I am though fighting is about knowing when not to. I write not for affirmation nor confirmation but fundamentally tt’s firmation. I was here now. I tweet and I update on facebook and it’s neither heavy nor light. It is what it is, as am I. I is what I is and that’s what time it is.
I’m by no means saying blogs replace family. I am not saying saying kill your family and blog. Blogging is certainly not therapy. Mine may have spelling mistique or grammatical terror at some points. For that I’m sorry. I’m not precious about it – call it what you want – but it is precious to me. When I say writing means the world to me I mean writing means the world to me. These four blogs should’ve been three don’t cha think this was one too far. Cheers to you and yours.
