A journey in progress

Note: My “confessions of the day” are part of an ongoing theme on my entertainment blog, but this one seems more appropriate over here.

Confession of the day:

Many of my (serious) posts are written with my future children in mind. Some of my posts are written for friends. Some are written for strangers I encounter.

And some of my posts are written for me as much as anyone.

Or more so.

Because this is not the story of some guy who went on a journey, faced many hardships, and succeeded.

This is not the telling of a tale after-the-fact when all is good and no matter how bad it gets, you know it’s going to have a happy ending.

This is the story of a guy still very much on a journey and still very much facing hardships and a future shrouded in doubt every day.

This is me trying to live some semblance of a normal life while also dealing with one that is anything but.

And if you sometimes forget that, then I am succeeding. Because it is not my intent to remind people all the time. Although sometimes it’s difficult not to (I’m human).

While I often share what I’ve learned after an event has happened or after I’ve bounced back from feeling a certain way, there are times when I feel raw and just need to think out loud.

There are times when I need to ask myself what I would say or do if I was a better, stronger, and more capable version of myself.

And then I listen and write it down.

As I’ve said before, “Sometimes you have to suck it up and be your own champion when no one else will.”

I wrote that for me a long time ago because it was how I was feeling at the time.

And then after I wrote it, people found it something they could relate to.

Which is good. It still applies.

Don’t quit.
