We’ve created a culture that fetishizes the new(s), and we forget the wealth of human knowledge, wisdom, and transcendence that lives in the annals of what we call “history” – art, literature, philosophy, and so many things that are both timeless and incredibly timely. Our presentism bias – anchored in the belief that if it isn’t at the top of Google, it doesn’t matter, and if it isn’t Googleable at all, it doesn’t exist – perpetuates our arrogance that no one has ever grappled with the issues we’re grappling with. Which of course is tragically untrue.

I told a close friend of mine that 2014 will be a year of good changes for me. I know I am a late bloomer - although it feels like I will never bloom or I have missed my train, but I am not losing hope. If it takes another 10 years to discover what I am good at, so be it. At least I am working at it. I am in the process of changing my environment.
Quote Benjamin Franklin: If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.
I have a plan already, taking baby steps, making necessary arrangements and so on. Preparing myself - mentally and emotionally.
Even this, writing my thoughts down in this manner, is a change for me. One baby step at a time.
I am willing to try new things. Go to new places. I want to and am planning to dive into the world of craft making once I get out of where I am now. Making new friends is going to be hard and tiresome for me because of my personality but let’s see who will I cross paths with.
