The Red Light


Now, I have the perfect answer to “What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?”. I won’t have to go digging deep to look for something that would sound crazy. It’s part of growing up and I am just thankful that it wasn’t as bad, it could have been worse. Now, I can laugh about it, but that was a scary move I made. Getting involved in a party brawl that I have no idea how it started or what ensued. So don’t joke with me or I’ll punch you in the face *just kidding*.

That was my red light. Looks like I’m having a phase of *experience, learn and decide*. If that’s what growing up is about, then clearly I have done much of it lately. If it’s not this then it’s that. I would love to complain and think all this is too much, but I take it in stride and I’m like, if I didn’t go through this then I wouldn’t know. Actually, I’m very thankful that the experiences have come in moderation,  you know getting that opportunity of thinking about what’s going on or what it is I’m doing, how it’s impacting my life. I’m glad I able to do that, it’s like a 2nd chance of sorts and it’s for me to decide whether to take that up or not. What I got that from this experience in particular was,

Growing up is never easy. You hold on to things that were, you wonder what’s to come. However,  it comes a time, you just know it’s time to let go of what had been, and look ahead to what would be. Other days. New days. Days to come. The thing is, we don’t have to hate each other for getting older. We just had to forgive ourselves for growing up.

“When you’re growing up your mother says, ‘Wear rubbers or you’ll catch cold.’ When you become an adult you discover that you have the right not to wear rubbers and to see if you catch cold or not. It’s something like that.” ~ Diane Arbus

Thankful Thursdays, don’t forget to say a small thank you today. Apparently, they say gratitude is the essence of good mental health and spirituality. Now you have every reason to … yah. Have an awesome day my people’s.

  • They say a fool is one who ignores advice from experienced people who went through these things before. I say it’s better to experience it yourself. Get rid of that curiosity… what if, maybe I, but then… its all part of learning.

    • Sure thing Di, I think so too. Of course we get advice from left, right and center and we take them all in or rather I do. But the ones I have actually experienced on my own … definitely gets rid of that curiosity bit and the learning is more intense. Thanks for passing by 🙂

    • Haha the day you see me ask me the story it wasn’t a fight really, just a brawl with people I don’t even know (don’t go to parties of people you don’t know, a spark can cause a fire). Got a bruise on my hand, fighter kweli kweli…funny one that was.
