Legs, Schools & Other Broken Things (Part I)

Legs, Schools & Other Broken Things (Part I)

BonesAfter months of absence… many, many months… finally, my first post of 2013. There is no real excuse, although in my defense… there were a lot of ups and downs and a major website resign which I can proudly say that I am proud of, although it took me a while to do.

The truth is we all become fractured. At one point in our lives we lose focus. In some cases it is allegorical, in other like in mine, it was a little more literal.

It all began more or less around a broken leg that occurred way back in late 2011. Long time ago… As it is no surprise, it is normally in moments of strife where one tends to find out who our real friends are and who can, wants or will stick around when you can’t walk due to a fractured fibula.

Not to say that I did not need a kick in the arse to get me to change some bad habits I had developed. Nothing better than a meta moment of despair to get to you to think about where your long-term goals lie and who you would like to spend those years with and how.

Also, I have to say, you will be really surprised just how you and I, how most of us take walking for granted. Not just for a few days but for weeks or what-the-heck, maybe a month and change. How ridiculously limiting it is. A little scary too, as you stare at the walls of limitations that suddenly rise up just in front of you. Like going down a long flight of stairs without tripping and breaking the other leg, or your neck, whichever comes first. You know, everyday stuff.

Cast-offIt was not all that bad. I knew that it was only a matter of time before I was back on my feet. I was in a relationship in which things needed to change, from both sides to say the least. Went back to school to study to get me some Marketing Management which I think I have always been keen on and in the end and more importantly, got sometime to think things through. About the mistakes I had made, the dire need to move forward and cast off all my wrongdoings, although it is never as easy as a cast removal. Nope. Takes time but it is something we all have to do and you not going to find the answer in a $23.99 copy of the Law Attraction. We are talking some serious introspective-seeking here.

These days, I have had the chance to do what I enjoy for a living with more coming down the pipe! Although as we all know, change is the one constant in life. I will be 36 this year and there are some places I would like to at  before my 40’s — life flies, man.

Will be going to Thailand and Cambodia this year for both fun and photography and I look forward to make those people around me happier than when I first meet them. That’s a good thing to strife for, I think. Alright, let’s get cracking! Just not bones.
