Namesake

I wanted to start a blog. I did start a blog.  Even though it happens every time you register, I always feel like I didn’t study for the big exam when I get to the page that asks you to pick a user name.   I thought for a bit and then chose “itacube” because it embodies the way that I feel about life.

I find, sadly, that when most people see a person or scenario, they are quick to categorize it and stuff it away. At first they will say, “Oh, that…that’s a square” and move on.  But if they would just take the time to peek around, they would see, it is a cube with 6 sides, not just the one they saw at first.  And so it is with people.  Your mother is more than just your mother.  She is someone’s sister, someone’s friend, someone’s co-worker, someone’s enemy and so on.  She is not the same person to all the others that she is to you.  This is fascinating to me because, it means that you can never really know or predict a person’s behavior.  You could probably never fully know or predict even your own.  I often hear, “I surprised myself  with that”.   If this is the case, then we really can pursue to be the best version of ourselves.  We can aspire to overcome, because the possibilties are endless.

And so it is with this blog, that I begin my journey of the many facets of the human heart and mind.  I hope that I can gain some followers to tell me how they feel.  I hope to learn more and more everyday.

It begins here…
