A Prose A Day One Year Anniversary

Today marks the one year anniversary of my blog!

I started this project to challenge myself to write one piece of work a day…

And as you can see, I haven’t been doing that. In fact, I haven’t been doing prose works at all and have mostly been sticking to poetry.

Perhaps it is time for a name change?

Either way,

2020 has been challenging. I had many aspirations this year. Some dreams have come true, others haven’t.

I finally graduated with my bachelors in English Education. I spent more time with my family and I miss my friends dearly. There was so much that I planned that I couldn’t do. And I think it’s the same for everybody because this year was challenging.

The lessons I learned this year are to be content with the present and to love those who are with you right now. You see, last year I had so many expectations. I wanted to walk the stage for graduation. I wanted to save money so that I could travel and hold the man I loved.

But these plans went down the drain when COVID hit.

All the planning, the dreaming, the wanting…

But strangely, I’m not sad about it.

As much as I want to control my future I can’t. I can only control the present.

So for now, I will love my friends and family in the present. I will spend time with them while they’re still here. I will do what I need to do right now. Pay attention to who is with me right now.

This doesn’t mean I will stop dreaming. Dreaming will always be a part of me. But, This time I will look less ahead and more at the now.

And I will continue writing. I don’t think I will ever stop.
