Howdy all,

In the nearly seventeen years I’ve been blogging from free blogs with Blogger and WordPress to paid, hosted WordPress sites that focussed on my interests in political science & analysis, current affairs, as well as the odd military blog here and there due to further interest I have had since my teens in military studies. I decided it was time to focus on less of that and more on me and who I wanted to become. It took a lot of pain and uncertainty to eventually get to where I currently am and where I want to go.

My interest in political science & analysis, unfortunately, changed me. Not that I wasn’t always constantly trying to find myself and find where I belonged anyway. It made me very self-opinionated, I think I might even go as far as to say I became an a**hole because that is what I veritably became, to the extent where even I ended up not liking myself very much. I was continuously angry as I overextended myself and ended up drifting into some very dangerous, unchartered waters in the politics of a country that I might have grown up in but was never really a country that I considered or felt was truly my home, not even the country of my birth, as highlighted in my blog,Β The Need for Belonging

I never truly found my belonging and felt out of place for the majority of my life there, I got involved in issues that could have put me in an even more perilous situation than I was already in.

Then, not too long ago a few things happened in my life from losing my mother at the end of 2018 from a long, recurring illness and then my own health issues that started with a severe gallbladder issue that had complications of its own and one ramped on top of the other.

Everything that happened in a sense forced me to reconsider who I really was and the value of life in its entirety and how it can quite easily be snuffed out through its fragility. It made me start searching my soul as to what really is important and what isn’t and who I wanted to become.

In short after all that happened in my life I put myself on a personal development journey, a journey of rediscovering myself, what I really wanted out of life, where I was and where I wanted to go and what I want to do with it.

This is a journey I am still on and I don’t think any personal development journey is ever truly over once you start because every single day is a learning curve with ups and downs and sometimes more downs than ups but generally more ups than downs once you figure out your path.

The thing is that I have learned throughout my journey is there are always going to be stumbling blocks but the most important thing is that we get up, dust ourselves off and keep moving forward. We just gotta get up and dust ourselves off because laying in the dust never did anyone any good.

So this is what this blog is going to be primarily about my journey, where I’m at right now and where I want to go with the odd piece that is close to my heart. And once I get to where I want to be I will be sharing every step of that next chapter of my life with you as this chapter closes.

I hope you will like what you read and that you stay. Thanks for coming along.
