Looking Back

I have not been able to blog since February. Correction: I have not blogged since February. It wasn’t as though there were distractions, but every time I sat down to write, nothing came out. I am definitely not one of those people who can write every day without an issue, which is as much of a good thing as it is a bad thing. I shouldn’t limit myself to only write when I feel like it. Simply put, I’m learning to not be ruled by the way I feel. 

What?

Does this mean I should completely abandon my emotions? No. I’ve just learned this past year that acting on our heart’s desire in the heat of the moment is an unwise decision. It’s hard to believe that when the world that we live in tells us to “follow your heart”.  I almost don’t want to write about this, because I feel like I don’t know how to put things into words. There I go, again! But really, when I think of all the times (of course, I can’t remember all of them) I acted upon a sudden urge or impulse, the results caused some sort of pain; either to me or somebody else. It’s occurred to me that managing your emotions helps to guard your heart. It’s a way to love people, too. End of thought. I just hope that made sense.

I didn’t know what pictures to post for this, so I went through most of the things that I have taken this past year. They all feel like they happened such a long time ago, which they did. These were all taken in the Fall, probably October. They’re black and white and very raw. I want the people to be the main focus.
