In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Long Exposure.”
As soon as I saw the words Long Exposure I thought this was going to be one of those prompts about photography. And I am no expert at all the technical talk when it comes to photography. I just take a few good pictures.
But then the prompt is about a person I am supposed to know for the longest period of time and how that person changed over time.
I always get this thought as how people change with time. Most of the time it will be about me. Honestly I am the only person whom I have known the longest. And I can say with a confidence that I do know myself better than anyone else. Although I would say that I have changed a lot over the years I don’t think I have changed for the worse.
I am getting stronger by the day. I am able to say no when I don’t want something. And I am able to do it in a way that does not hurt anyone. I am able to smile even when I am hurt. I am able to see the starlight on the darkest of nights. I do live in a dream world filled with beautiful gardens, beaches and cottages. I am happy in my own little bubble.
And most of all I am proud of the person I am today.
A long way to go by and still a lot to learn about myself. More confidence to gain. A lot to do. So many places that I need to visit. So many experiences to achieve. And no more regrets.
