Hi, I'm Genesis.

I speak about things angrily sometimes. Especially things I strongly believe in. I need to learn to speak about these certain things in a more calm, collected manner. Not only for my own sake, but in order to reach out to others and get a response from them. Sometimes I associate anger with passion, and sometimes I forget that anger can also be associated with a lack of confidence. Being angry isn’t going to help others learn from me. So, I need to learn to be passionate without being angry. Adding “be less angry” to my list of things I need to change.

I need to learn to enjoy the view, the journey, or whatever it is that people who appreciate the present do.

Recalling so many things I have done wrong or could have handled differently. I don’t mean to live in the past, but it just all comes back to me sometimes. I’m not having a pity party or anything (which I am proud of myself for), just simply reflecting on past mistakes and hoping that I do not repeat them.
