At 43 I reconnect this time to my youth…………..It's been ages since I last wrote something. There are a few excuses that I can think of to justify not writing but instead I decided to go by the truth and say I got lazy. I was swept away by new media (video), I discovered that standing in front of my camera and say what I want the world to hear coming straight to my mouth. Was better, was more me and it was, and it still is, But here I am on a Friday night Infront of my laptop and looking at my old site who I haven’t visit for a very long minute. I guess it’s best to first do a quick what’s up? and what’s happening? before I go forward to what this is and what its going to be.
I turned 43 after a year of being 42, my wife still wears the pants but I’m still the man of the house, when she is out. �� Kidding aside, I have made huge changes in my life. First planned to change my work, new work unfamiliar territory. Started reconnecting to my roots (friends, classmates, people etc.), Taal volcano exploded, shocking by the way. But the biggest one Covid-19 came, still here and I wish it would just go away.
There you go all caught up. Moving on. I was reading some of my old work, some are cringe, some I wanted to look for the delete button, some I ask myself what got into me? But for the most part I realize, that was my thoughts, my ideas, my feelings transformed into words. I read some more, and I realize that when I made these blogs, I was not writing for the world, or anybody, I was writing for me. Though the articles were silly the time I was writing them, they were the ones that matter to me. The words maybe grammatically hideous and foolish, but they were my voice, my youth.
At 43 I reconnect this time to my youth, to my writing. I’m not saying I’m back, but I can say I want to start writing again and maybe a little bit better than how I use to, Better word choices, way better content. If there’s something that will stay is that I will still be writing what matter to me, it will still be my voice.
