A Random Chat About Anniversaries
Hey there, fancy meeting you here. Can I let you in on something? There’s two important days coming up this week for me, anniversaries in fact. Characters at Large turns 3 years old this Wednesday (06/01/2022) AND Katie and I are celebrating 5 years together the day before that. It’s difficult for me to put into words my thoughts on both at the moment, mostly because I haven’t thought about them too much. What I can say is that they’ve enabled me to grow in ways I didn’t know possible. Tested me to the point of collapse and was there when I reached some of my highest achievements afterwards. They’ve helped guide me towards becoming who I am now and most importantly, they’re part of the end goal. What is that goal? Life with contentment and love, it’s that simple.
I mean I think it is. I sure hope it is at least. Anniversaries are odd to think about. If we compare them to say birthdays, they’re basically the same thing just with different names for I guess helping with the contextual using of the word? I don’t know man, I just decided to type this on this webpage. What about this: what about when they’re tied to something that we don’t actively think about? Let’s take our friendships with the people in our life. Relationships in all forms are wonderful part of the human experience, one I believe many take for granted. Is celebrating the length of your friendship with someone worth doing? Is it worth brining attention to? The answer to me is absolutely yes. Yes it is and I’ll tell you why, it’s very similar to my thoughts on the two anniversaries I mentioned earlier. The passage of time and our actions should be remembered so that we may reflect upon them, to help us reaffirm our understanding that things have changed and/or are changing. It happens constantly and we don’t notice all the time. Some things don’t change completely though, they instead evolve and hopefully for the better. That shouldn’t be forgotten and should be celebrated when appropriate.
I mean in all honestly, if you’re going to go through the effort of acknowledging that time is indeed passing and that’s it, why not take the opportunity to reaffirm your important relationships? You owe it to yourself, trust me.
Thanks for stopping in!
