:: ON BEING GEOGRAPHICALLY CHALLENGED ::
I never use the term 'geographically challenged'. It was my friend Aileen who often use it and actually believes that she is indeed geographically challenged (we both live down south) especially on friendships and relationships. As for me, I always believe that 'if there's a will, there's a way'. Cliche but true. People can complain how far or near I am but I will nonetheless NOT be bothered by it. What for? It's a choice, anyway. Either you live with it or you leave it. However, I do believe in the effects of "change in disposition and distance" since I've been victimized with it a lot of times in the past. If you are an ardent reader of my blog, you would know that I'm very OC and uncomfortable about sudden changes in my life. Especially if those changes has something to do with distance and geographics. I am used to changes and is pretty flexible on things BUT I just don't want to be caught off-guard. Changes for me have to be studied and prepared for before I can swallow it. Slowly BUT surely. I have dealt with a lot of changes in my adult life. Most of them were actually 'needed' changes for the betterment of good ole me. Sadly, some of it also has a lot of trade-offs. Somehow I've learned to accept that along with moving on are left behinds. Along with parting of ways are forgotten promises. Along with goodbyes are new hellos.
I am not making any sense. I don't even know what my point is.
But for the first time in months, the ghosts are back again and I am actually...scared.
Am I also geographically challenged? Argh!
I blame the above thoughts on having so many idle time on my hands!
