note to self: i’ll be there for you, always

written june 6, 2021. Photo by Kristine Cinate on Unsplash I have always looked for myself in other people. I think the idea was that they would somehow hold the pieces of me that I felt were missing. That maybe, if I wrapped my identity up in theirs enough, we would somehow make a whole person. It's not healthy to live like this, but I did it anyway — burning through relationships and searching for something I couldn't quite name. It was never enough, not to be myself, but it was never enough to latch my identity to other people, either. I got close, several times — I thought I had reached the pinnacle of self discovery. I thought I had completed myself. But in the end, relying on other people to help build yourself is never a viable way to do things. It's only recently that I've started to become comfortable with the idea of being enough, as I am, on my own. Several years ago, in this same position, I would have searched for another person to attach my identity onto,

The End of All Things

I got a Tumblr.

Yes, you can blame Georgie Penn for this. No, actually, maybe you should blame Fin. They both got me started... and I am hooked.
That feeling when your best friend’s best friend convinces her to try out Tumblr, and therefore, you jump on the bandwagon and get that gut feeling that you like it. Yeah… {via}
When I was going to sign up, I couldn't come up with anything. Then this quote entered my mind...
"I’m glad you’re here with me, Sam… here, at the end of all things."
-Frodo Baggins

Thus, my Tumblr blog was titled, The End of All Things.

At first it was named that on a whim. Then, I got to thinking. Isn't it really profound? I love random bursts of profundity. That's where the name for this blog came from, and I love it still to this day, 5 years later. I seriously think God names my blogs for me. ;)
My tumblr blog is called The End of All Things. Yes, I know… it’s morbid. When I was naming my tumblr blog, this quote popped into my head as random as could be…

“I’m glad you’re here with me, Sam… here, at the end of all things.”
-Frodo Baggins

It seems really morbid. Until I got to thinking… the end of all things. Frodo says they’re at the end, but they’re not really. After that, they go on to live happy lives. So it’s not the end.

It’s only the beginning.

And if hobbits find the end of all things, can’t we? {via}
And with that, I leave you with a relevant post, also from my tumblr, regarding a certain Mr. Gavin Gray.

Dear Gavin Gray,

First off, I love how you’re turning out. You’re an awesome character and you totally rock. I can’t believe you even came from my own brain. Which brings up a question… did you really come from my brain? If not, I must ask, because I’ve been wondering…

Where the heck did you come from??

  1. YAY for Tumblr! For once Fin managed to get something right. ;)

  2. Oh sheesh. How incredibly supportive you are!

  3. Hahaha! I love the letter to Gavin. :)

  4. Awesome title! Love the letter to Gavin Gray.

  5. WAIT, this doesn't mean you are going to stop posting on your REAL blogs, does it? Well, it really is the end of all things. **sobs**

    Just kidding. Anyway, have fun with it!

  6. Yay, great name choice, Sky! I love LOTR references. ;) Have fun with "The End of All Things"!

    Out of curiosity - does this mean you're leaving Blogger? And if so, will you still host Beautiful People here, or on Tumblr?

    PS I agree with everyone... your letter to Gavin Gray is fantastic. ;)
