"It all started with a girl (haha).
I was infatuated with this girl that lived in another city. I hardly ever got the chance to speak to her, but when we did we always clicked. And when we actually met for the first time, the same feeling came to me again. I spoke to her here and there, and even though it was months in between each conversation, she never left my mind. This actually continued for more than a year. Anyway, I don’t want to this EP to seem like it was based on some failed pursuit of love, so I’ll just cut to the chase.
On her last visit, I decided to tell her how I felt and she told me that she didn’t and never did feel the same. As you can imagine, I didn’t feel to good for a while. But as a result of this negative state, this led me to think about things and evaluate myself. I ended up realising a few things.
Even if things did go the way I hoped, would I have been able to give her as much of my time as she deserved? Would I be able to slow the pursuit of my dreams to make time for her? Let’s face it; I’m a university student, I work in a warehouse making just enough money to get me by and I am also pursuing my dreams of being a musician. And on top of all of this, I was struggling to grasp the idea of managing my time between everything.
So in all realness, it was definitely not the right time to have a girlfriend, regardless of whether it happened or not.
Fast forward a few months and I began to learn a little more about myself. I did some serious soul-searching and through it all, it brought me to the point where I had decided to give my perspective a good ol’ 180. Instead of dwelling on all the things that I didn’t have, I begun to look at everything I’ve accomplished in my life thus far.
This brought me back to an old blog entry that I had written a few years back. It was such an emotional moment, because after all this time of doubting myself, I had read back on this list of goals that 18 year old me had written and I had achieved every single one of them. It may have taken time, but I am exactly where I wanted to be.
Since that day, I’ve learnt never to run with negative feelings because I know that my problems are only temporary. Why would they matter if I’m going to end up where I want to be anyway? I’ve been through tough phases before and here I still stand.
I’ll get to wherever I’m going, because everything happens In Time."
