New Beginnings

Let me just first start off by saying I have a NEW BABY NIECE. 

Kiana Ariel
Born at St. Boniface General Hospital
October 17 at 2am
7 lbs - 8oz.  

She is too cute for words.  I just cannot wait to play with her.  I am just so excited.  Words cannot express it.  Congrats to my sister Mabelyn & Patrick for bringing us this tiny miracle.

When I held her for the first time, my first thought was "please god, do not let me to drop her."  It's quite scary how fragile they are after birth.  She got a LOT of hair...kind of like me.  I hope to get a chance to visit the hospital with my boyfriend Sam once more before they bring her home.  That's when the fun really begins.  Time to get a transit pass to visit on a regular.  Fun times lay ahead.  
It's amazing - the miracle of life that is.  Everything is fresh and brand-new.  No corruption of what's "really" out there in the world.

This actually strings right along what I have been meaning to blog about.  I recently met up with an friend, whom I had not spoken to in a year or so.  The reason for the fall-out is personal, therefore I will not go into detail.  I have know this friend for more than a decade and over the time span of our friendship, he gradually changed for the worse; losing his grounded personality along the way.  Only thinking about money, power, status and being "Top Dog".  I expressed to him (when we were friends) that ALL OF THAT is not the meaning of life.  One has to be happy.  To be loved and to express your love for others is key.  He never heard me up until now.

We did the whole small talk at first but then dug into the real pressing matter..."why he wanted to meet in the first place".  He said he had come to the realization about what it was I was trying to relay to him years ago.  He claimed his re-building of friendships and any one who had helped him get to where he is today; that he should not hold grudges or shun them out.  He had also mentioned some things in conversation, which were quite flattering (abt a job interview question)...again in which I will not discuss further but know it was quite heart warming.

Although, I felt blessed to hear his new revelations, there were some points where the "old" shone through.  Actions speak louder than word after all.  Is it possible for someone to completely change?  Start fresh again after so much hurt and pain?

At the end of it, I told him to not be a stranger and we went our separate ways.  I suppose time will have to tell in this situation.  Anyone can change.  It's just a matter of how BAD you want to change.

Being happy is the key to life.  Do not let anyone else tell you otherwise. <3

  1. I think it's very possible for a person to completely change... I think it's because of experiences and their perceptions of those perceptions that can lead a person to do it.

    You have proven this yourself, right? =)

    And people can change either way... new beginnings can be good or bad. Pray for good ones all around though, haha. Gotta make this world a better place to be in. <3
