Shame, regret, confusion… just some of the emotions that run through my head from time to time. In between those moments, life happens. So crazy how times fly, whether you have fun or not. I can’t lie and say I was always sad, depressed, or what have you, but when the wool covers your eyes, it’s hard to see what’s in front of you.
The quiet moments are sometimes the scariest. The calm in between the hectic moments, or mindless ones. It leaves room for the mind to wander, going to strange places, to dark places. I guess the key is not to get lost in those dark places. Some find it, and get stuck.
Time has past, in and out of this wilderness that was my life. Looks like I made it out, for the most part. But was I untouched, unscathed? Absolutely not. I’m just now realizing, or not ignoring any longer, what the real situation is. Filled with regret at times, but life, certain things get pushed to the back. Time… the hourglass empties.
I wish I was a better son. A better friend. A better mate. I try, I really do. Life however waits for no one. Stops for no one. A perpetual spinning of a wheel. We either go with it without stopping, or we become a loose cog falling out.
I guess the point of this is that we need to be more mindful, I need to be more mindful. We need to not look back with the could have or should haves. What’s done is done. Life, as messed up, or as great as it can be, has brought us here to the present. The now.
Time to register the important, become the wheel…

Was just a freight train coming your way”
