Not in my dreams

Updated: Jun 6, 2023


Isn't it remarkable the profound effect that youthful memories continue to have on us, even as we conquer other unrelated goals along life's path. To me the thought of posting this blog will be like shedding every piece of clothing and walk down the street stark naked. It seems as if I had put a particular Jumbie in a cupboard and thrown the key but now the thought of blogging has released it. It's quite unnerving to think that I, me, who would normally do a quick assessment of a situation, formulate a plan that would in many cases include the real chance of failure, because I know not every venture would be a success, could be so daunted by putting a few words out for you to read. This is very telling on how we teach, learn, parent, guide and love.


So that being said, to say that this was a dream of mine as I was growing up would be a huge lie. As a matter of fact anything to do with creative writing I felt was out of my realm of possibilities as that would have been my weakest subject in school as a child.

Somehow teachers never found what I wrote worthy of a good mark so it became a stressful part of my schooling. It's not that I didn't try. I had no choice but to try. The subject was mandatory but try as I might, success eluded me. My preference was anything to do with numbers which was my ultimate passion. I chose subjects around Math. Once it involved calculations it would be a definite for me.


But life changes and things keep moving and improving, that is after all the only constant in life, and I do embrace change as I embrace life. So maybe this would become part of my routine to drop you a blog post here 😁😀. My life is so full of change and new happenings, one just never knows. Perhaps as I delve deep into my creative self, exploring, unearthing and enhancing all that I've kept somewhat dormant, the art of communicating through written word would also come alive and flourish.


Hopefully my journey through a career change at this stage of my life can inspire you , or maybe prompt you, or even just assure you that your decision is the best one for you. I must say that in my younger days I would not have felt the need to share my feelings, my experiences, my intentions and definitely if I felt that I had succeeded in any way, as I held and still hold privacy as such an important and integral part of my life, but if nothing else maturing has shown that if we speak about our issues, discuss our concerns and generally communicate more freely on our life experiences it makes better living for all of us.


With so many of us on the planet it is neigh impossible that any experience we have is really unique to us. Although there are quite a few that are extremely uncommon, but just stop and think..., one in a million is really quite a few persons when you put that as part of 8 plus billion.

I myself have learned so much from other persons' posts that I now feel that I am being selfish if I choose not to share my experiences wherever possible to allow others to be able to benefit from them, whether it is in agreement or just to say, "Not me, I'll never do that".

I am now just loving life and living it to the fullest possible so who knows, let's just wait and see!
