Piece #59 - Indecisive

I have to admit that I've been rather indecisive lately. I'm trying to remember a time in the past when I was so unaware in my life! I think the bad part is that by a certain point you should have reached were you wanted to be. Sadly that is not my case, because I always thought I'd be writing comic books, manga, novel or short stories. So far the only things I've "published" have been these blogs about my life with Asperger's. I don't know if it's the age or autism, but I'm at a point right now where I have no idea what to do. Honestly, I never thought at this point I'd still be high school no less! Maybe college, but not in the public school system I can tell you that for sure.

Don't get me wrong, I still love to write, but I feel like I've lost a little of my passion. I guess when you fight for so many years on stories and working with artists then the company either doesn't like your stuff or they go belly up it really broke me down. Being indecisive can be dangerous because when you don't do anything, the only thing that gets done is TIME going by. That is the thing that gets wasted of all...time; with having Asperger's time is one thing I tend to keep an eye on, but it still slides past me faster than I think. I really want to continue writing my stories, but I haven't found that 'magic' spark I use to have. I really believe I can get it back, but until then I'll keep writing these blogs and my personal journals I guess.

Probably one of the most difficult indecisive moments I've had has to be college...I mean as a student this time. I already have my Master’s degree, but I originally went back again for another degree and this one would deal with History. The plan was it would start out as a Masters in History and then move right into the Doctoral program for History, but I've hit a bump in the road. I really want to finish this out, I'm actually rather close to being done, right now I have too many distractions and lack of motivation that have gotten in the way. I have to admit it’s been a really struggle. I still had hoped for a PhD.

Some would think that through all of this, I'm just having a 'mid-life crisis'; but I think this goes further than that. I believe in the 'crisis' a person evaluates they're life and feels like they've missed something so they go and try to live a completely different life; even at the risk of cheating on their spouse. As you've read so far, that isn't my issue. I'm just having hard time making a sound decision on anything! I don't feel like I need to live a different life, I just need to decide on how to live the one I have now. All I can say is that I hope I can get over this funk soon. Having this Asperger's, it's really bugging me. I use to have a clear focus and direction and right now that seems to have gotten away from me. Like always, I need to lean on my family and my Lord because I know they have my best interest at heart.

Song of Inspiration [Check it out on iTunes or Android!]:

Song: "Only Human"

Artist: 12 Stones

Here's the lyric video for the selected song. This is a great example of all of our short falls and indecisiveness.

I think this just about says it all...

Lost Piece #1 - The Gospel Truth

"I know my Jesus, I love Him, and I think if he needed me to believe that homosexuality was a sin, He would have mentioned it. He didn’t. When Jesus said that marriage was between a man and a woman, he was responding to a question about divorce, not sexuality.* And even the Gospels... well, even though they are gospel to me, I accept that they are also interpretations of what Jesus said and did and meant -we don’t have a single written word directly from Jesus. He could have left us something - he could have left another list of rights and wrongs when He came to Earth, but he chose not to." Glennon Doyle Melton - Aug 25, 2013
These words were penned by Ms. Glennon Doyle Melton who is an author and Christian blogger. Back in February of 2017 she announced that she was engaged to Abby Wambach a former Women's Soccer Champion. Glennon had been married to her husband (Craig Melton) for over 14 years before she divorced him due to his extramarital affairs.  Glennon had also o…

Piece #110 - My Complex Discernment of Concrete versus Abstract

I very rarely start off any of my blog entries with a picture but, this photo will illustrate a rather compelling discussion about my Asperger brain. I can't think of a better example of just how complicated a small part of concrete versus abstract is processed in my mind. I will do my best to sort out the complete meaning behind this picture. There will be several odd turns but, stick with me because this will actually make sense in the if my wife gets it then we're good!
Defining Terms:
Completeness - The state or condition of having all the necessary or appropriate parts. Uniform - Identical or consistent, as from example to example, place to place or moment to moment. Commonality - The state of sharing features or attributes.
The first area I want to address is uniform. Of course, I'm not talking about an outfit; I'm talking about consistency; the idea that flows smoothly from the top to the bottom. I guess a good example is like looking at a baseball card, a…
