"love is patient, love is kind. it does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. it is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. it always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. love never fails." 1 Corinthians 13:4–8

So tonight, after having dinner with my family and Angel at Black Angus, Angel and I had a conversation just about life and living and where I am in my life, the struggles that I am currently facing, and the challenges that are about to come my way.
During this conversation, I had come to the realization of one thing, cycles. There are plenty of Cycles that happen in my life, mostly in my relationships with people. Sometimes good, and that I can deal with, and other times they can be vicious and difficult to deal with. I always wonder why these struggles come to me over and over again, when I thought I had conquered them before.
I am feeling that that description is a bit broad, so here it is in more detail I guess,
So I have realized that my entire adult life, okay “adult” life, I realized that the strong relationships that I formed or have kept with me have started this cycle. Each has its own individual way weaving through my life, and each have a beginning middle and end that start at different times and are in different phases periodically throughout the time that I have realized.
Beginning: Serenity, this could be with friendships, relationships, school anything. There always is a time that entices me and wants to draw me in for the long haul, and this is the stage that does so. The serenity of the cycle, of course is my favorite part, because who doesn’t like peace and happiness.. I certainly do. This can last for as short as a day, or as long as a year, who knows it varies, and it always will.
Middle: Conflict, again could happen with any aspect of my life. Let’s face it, shit gets hard, and I’m not one who likes to deal with conflict in any way or form. I have a tendency to give up. To avoid the problem and pretend it doesn’t exist. I don’t DO anything about the specific problem, I avoid the person, I don’t do the work, I try to beg and plead for things to go back to the beginning and pretend it didn’t happen. I try to make things go MY WAY. And you know what, shit doesn’t work that way, and I have realized this, but it is a hard pill to swallow.
End: Resolution, I always end up caving in, sometimes willingly and unwillingly. This part definitely varies, and I think all my different cycles end in different ways. But always, I realized, that after the resolution happens I feel like I am guaranteed to go back to the beginning stage, serenity. I tend to give up, because I know what’s next.
My life has formed these different cycles and the reason why I don’t take risks is because I am, in a way, comfortable in this mentality and it’s honestly really fucked up. I need to go out and make changes and not get so used to this silly routine that I have conjured up with my life. There needs to be variety. Since I am stuck in this rut, there definitely is no growth going on, I know it and those who are close to me can definitely see it.
There is something wrong with the way I am living, it angers me, it frustrates me, and it is a serious block from my mind and the world I live in. Dylan told me to read some buddhist texts, and he’s been trying to get me to read, but I have been really stubborn and stuck in my own materialistic world, that maybe that is what I need, that is what I need to get away from my attachment to the cycles of my life.
Change won’t happen tomorrow, but after realizing this, it’s definitely a start. To whoever read this, thank you, I don’t know if this made any sense or not, but thank you. I just had to get all of this off of my chest.
My world is a shaking and it’s really intimidating yet it is exciting. These upcoming years are going to be huge, and I can’t wait to open doors ( ;) ) and be out in the world, study hard, and grow as a person.
I grew up with her through the Sunday school program and confirmation at my church, and although I lost contact with her, I am so glad she was a part of my life. She was the person who partnered with me, when no one would pick me in Sunday school during a partner activity. Sat next to her a few times my freshmen year in Starfire.
It’s pretty insane how fast life can be taken away, especially from other people who are just selfish and want other peoples possesions. I pray for her family and her friends, because her death has affected me in a way that I can’t explain. I can’t imagine what her friends and family are going through, but this has definitely brought a new light into my life.
I appreciate my friends, near and far, no matter how long since we’ve spoken, if we had a falling out or not, because the impact that everyone has made to my life has moulded me to who I am today, even Kristina.
She nudged me to audition for my first solo in lightshine my 8th grade year, for confirmation. Hope set high. I have a video of me and the rest of Lightshine and Starfire, and I look at myself right before the song starts, and I see myself giving someone a thumbs up, and I remember it was her, she knew how nervous I was.
Without her nudging me on, I wouldn’t have been able to gather the guts to even audition for that solo, and probably many more in the future when I moved on to Starfire. Now, I love to worship while singing.
Everything is a chain reaction, everything and everyone makes an impact, and it saddens me that her opportunity has been cut short.
But today, after the news of her death, I look at all the words that people shared on her wall, and out of that sadness, there is the happiness through the memories that she shared with all these people. I can’t even imagine how many “chain reactions” she has started with everyone. She will truly be missed.
