Continuance

Personal

I’ve decided that instead of posting long posts that take a while to arrive, I’ll make an effort to post more frequently with shorter posts. An example of this is yesterdays post, “A walk through tomorrows future.”

By posting more frequently I am hoping it allows me to communicate with my audience at a quicker pace and allows more content to flow more often.

I have noticed that my posting of content is incredibly infrequent. with some posts coming daily while others taking weeks to formulate. I will try to remedy that and post either every day or every few days at least.

I hope every single one of you has a great day and if you haven’t already, please don’t forget to follow me so you can be sure to get all my content as soon as it posts! (Click the little box on the bottom right side of the screen!!)

Cruising

Personal

Honestly, late at night thinking is the best. You are free from distractions, under no pressure to act and can just do whatever you wish; heck, staring at a wall for 3 hours straight has no consequences even. While I am writing this, I am listening to some nice relaxing music (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ENIN6UgD9pI) and just jotting down thoughts upon a piece of paper; who knows, perhaps it may become a story?

A few of the books I hold closest to my heart// 1984// The Book Thief// The Great War Diaries//

 

My coffee went cold hours ago, and the occasional car can be heard in the distance. The ambience of the room is that of silence, with only my pen upon paper disrupting the calm.

These past few days I have been thinking more often than not about my future. I feel that most people my age are beginning to realise the power we have with choosing our future but also the insignificance of our position upon this earth. I guess, we fear to be forgotten which is why we engage in actions that otherwise we would choose not to do if we were not so worried. We must try to move forward and focus on everything that matters.

Our future can be whatever we want it to be. That’s the beauty of life; it is in our own hands where we go.

If you have not tried to do late night thinking, perhaps try it. I promise you, once you try it; you will not regret it for there is no going back.

Why we need voices.

A thousand years from now, you wish you had done it.

A hundred years from now, you wish you had said it.

Ten years from now, you will tear yourself up over why you never had the courage.

One year from now, it will keep you up at night.

Today, you are questioning why it should ever happen and how someone else will do it or has done it already.

Stop that thought immediately.

I often am questioned as to why I continue to pursue a career path that is incredibly competitive and also diminishing in desirability. With funding and job cuts occurring quite regularly in one (Journalism) and the other being a battlefield with a free-for-all tournament commencing every day, with each combatant wishing to beat the others, and be the loudest voice heard (Writing).

However rather than let myself become disheartened, I approach the question differently. I flip the question to the person asking and pose the question, “If you could change the world forever with your actions, even though there were many trying to pull you back, would you?”

By placing the question in this manner, it allows the individual to understand that their actions can and do hold value. There may be others wishing to stop you from achieving your desired conclusion, but if you were able to make a change, you would, and we both know it.

We need to get out of the thought pattern of believing that others will achieve what we are too lazy or nervous to do because odds are, they are thinking the exact same way. Every day is a new chance to get closer to the goal that we want and envision for ourselves.

If we can acknowledge that our actions are powerful and we must use them in accordance to becoming closer to our vision, hopefully, we can break this negative aura that plagues our mind. The thought of- “It doesn’t matter, someone else will do it.”

If I have not given up, so shouldn’t you. Every step is a place closer to the world in which you wish to live within.

Make sure it happens.
