This whole year has been an emotional roller coaster ride with so many ups and downs. If it wasn’t for Kaelen in my life, there’d be a lot more downs. But I am one of those people that tries not to worry about things, and knows that life works itself out. It’s still tough though when every day it seems like something depressing happens. My birthday is coming up in about 10 days and I’m looking forward to that, I had a shitty year. We’ll be having the usual parties and taking some time to just relax for once. And maybe during that time, life will turn back around to being happy all the time again. Then I could get back in that boat that just sails along to freedom. And once I’m in that boat, don’t rock it, I just wanna chill for a while.
With Kaelen turning 3 years old next week I know this next year is going to be so much fun. He’s already a pretty grown up kid for a 3 year old, like we can already just straight hang out together all the time and stuff, but watching him grow up and learn new things just makes me so happy. I love kids anyway, most people know that. And one of my favourite things to do in life is to teach. But with Kaelen I just watch hm learn on his own, and give him the proper advise when he needs it. Those moments are what I live for right now, and no one can change that.
Bob Marley says in the song: Don’t Rock My Boat
“When we bend them new corners, we feel like Sweepstakes Winners”
A simple line that means so much. The most exciting times in life are new experiences. And with children, every day is a new experience – for both them and us. No one knows what that child is going to do that day until he does it. It could be a new song, a new funny joke, a new word, or just a special moment between the two of you that has never happened before. But it all makes you happy, it all makes you proud, and for a second you forget all your troubles and just sit on top of the world in your glory, and it feels good.
This is what I’m going to focus on for the next year – new experiences. And I’m going to continue to create more and more for the children of tomorrow to enjoy so that we all can feel like big time winners every day…
