I’m dedicating my blog to all the service men and women who gave their lives for my freedom. I also want to dedicate and thank all the men and women who risk their lives every day and for those who save them. I salute all of you.
Balance has gotten tougher now that my eyes are open even more, although it brings more pain than prior to enlisting in the military, it’s worth every tear. I did close to 10 years, I spent 4 years deployed in the combat zone. The time I wasn’t deployed I was training for the next one. My life spun into automatic chaos. The human body under stressful conditions. When my time in the military ends, what mode will I be? Did I start bringing chaos where ever I went? Short answer, yes. The life I knew was gone, and I didn’t even know, until that illusion I thought was the ground fell out. When this growing pain revealed itself, I was left with one question. Who am I? A very broad question and I plan on narrowing my topics in my later blogs. I use writings of all genre to express myself, using different styles to challenge myself. The question of who I am was a good start. I was at the same crossroads prior to my enlistment. Life has a way of throwing smoke screens and obstacles in the path of progress, which is expected. There’s no order for the obstacles, they all play an equal part in change.
I’m a tree split by a company whose running cables straight through the middle. Branches pruned around the cable. My branches continued to grow around the cable, forming a half wreath intertwined with budding flowers of the unknown. A perfect split from the cables, leaving just enough room on the sides to not touch. I’m not sure if any of my writing will help anyone, I hope that it does. Thank you for taking a look at my blog and hope you find what you’re looking for in life.
