Reflections on the last year
I am going to write a few words today about me and this blog as things have changed quite a lot since I originally started it and I am quite sure you will of noticed I haven't been blogging as much on it as I had.
I have a different focus running in my life than a good number people, some of which has been touched on in posts here, others perhaps on other sites and social media and it is fair to say that side of me is very much the prevailing one which has it's full expression elsewhere.
When in some ways you are "younger than your years" and that's a central part of you in reality there is only limited scope for much else and I had found in so many ways there was little really different to post on this blog to really justify the amount of time a decent blogging cycle for it.
I was finding generally the only stuff that was unique to this blog was some of my observations around social trends and odd political comment as most of my other interests were and are connected more to that younger, more child-like side of me which I can now see is where I always was.
There's a certain irony in some respects that aspects of that with the love and support of people who respect how that makes me, is helping me a good deal more in learning to be more independent and more mature by working with it where before I had felt I had to pretend to be more like others and struggling with life.
For the first time in my life I feel happy content even being more able to handle what life my throw at me because I feel so much more in control of 'the real me' and that's what this years been all about.
