This is not a life update.

Saturday, May 22, 2021


It’s already past the middle. We’re approaching the other half of this year that has become the less shocking twin of 2020. 2021, “the more normal child”, as adults would say when comparing siblings, as if unaware of how rude it is to even do so. But yes, it felt a lot more “normal”, there’s a feeling of being accustomed to it not being normal.

So, how are you all doing?

I hope, that unlike me, you already took the time to look back on the first half of the year. You know, to see how you’re doing on the goals you’ve decided to move towards. Figuring out what needs to be done versus what needs reassessment and the likes.

It’s good practice. For self-awareness, grounding, and motivation. I’ve been told and I think so too. And right now, I’m thinking of why I haven’t taken the time to do my own reflection of how the past 6 months panned out.

I won’t list them down here though. This is not a life update.

What this is, I believe, is me coming clean...
About wanting to but feeling afraid 
of finding out that I didn’t do my best 
when I said I would. For the nth time.

But I will look back. Identify the spot where I left off 
Or maybe pick up the pace from where I am now. 
Maybe I’m still just unaware of my progress 
because I haven’t checked yet.

Still a few weeks of this middle approaching the second half. I still have time. So do you, if we’re in the same situation. 

But even if I, you, we, get passed this middle, there will always be time for it.
The question really is, “how will we use it?”
