Ever since I was little I’ve always become complacent very quickly, ready to move on, usually before my time.
At the age of 9, I was ready to move From First to Middle School, then at the age of 13 I was ready to move from Middle to High School, then at 16 I was more than ready to move on from High to College, and now at 18, I was ready to move on from College to the next chapter of my life a year before I left.
I get fed up quickly, staying in one place bores me.
I want to be constantly mentally stimulated, I want fresh surroundings and new vibes. This restlessness can become a pain, being constantly eager to switch things up and experience something new – somewhere new, isn’t always ideal.
I crave more.
I’m curious, and maybe that’s where my restlessness derives from.
But curiosity is a precious quality, maybe it doesn’t seem so desirable to parents when constant often unanswerable questions from their children, or when you end up falling out of trees to see how much weight one branch could hold or what castles you can see from the top of the oak tree, but it is, I promise you that.
My Mum’s always taught me to see the good in everything, to turn everything back on itself until you find a positive. This applies to characteristics and traits too, my unwillingness to settle will get me places, I’ll experience, I’ll find new interests, passions, loves, I’ll learn and I’ll live, and if that’s what being restless gives me, then I’ll take that, I’ll take that and more.
