On being the captain of your own destiny.

I have been giving a great deal of thought to the idea of how much I do or don't feel in charge of where I am going in life, or where I will be able to go. I have been feeling greatly uncertain and distressed at the idea that I am sailing on the turbulent seas of life with no idea how long the current storm will last or where the waves will take me.

Today I realised that it's okay. Being a captain of the seas does not mean you are a captain of the waves themselves. I sail my ship and chart a course as I see fit, but I have no control over the wild sea I travel on. The winds may blow in the wrong direction, and the waves may sweep me away to places I did not intend to go, but being the captain of my ship, my destiny, does not mean that I can control the sea. Being the captain of my destiny means I control how I move with the wind and the waves.

I am the captain of my own destiny, and I shall rule my sea someday. For now, however, I will simply move along with it, and see where it takes me, and that's just fine.

Keep on sailing, fellow captains.

Ding dong, the witch is dead.

The witch being Facebook. I've murdered Facebook. Or left it, whichever. Why did I do this? Well, it's simply a mixture of my weird head, and Facebook being a bit of a toxic hole. Not much more than the rest of the internet, but I dunno... there's just something that's worse about it when it's people you know. This came to a head recently with the referendum and what not. Boy, I'll be glad when that's over.

So what does this mean for you? Nothing because no one is reading this, but on the off chance that someone is here's the plan:

1) - Post more.

2) - Post more.

3) - Post to a regular schedule

4) - Post more.

So hopefully that will be a thing. I'm going to try and post a variety of stuff, from my miniatures painting, life news and general writings. I'm still mulling over what I'll do. Maybe I'll do "Mini Mondays" and nonsense like that. 

In the meantime, I've got house unpacking to procrastinate on. :P

Keep being awesome
