Since I stumbled upon “The Everyday Inspiration” course by random these past few days,I decided that it is an ideal opportunity for myself to increase my writing skills and build up my confidence by sharing my stories and seeing where my imagination is going to take me throughout this quite interesting challenge.So,what better way to discover more of myself than to join and give the best that I’ve got?
Day 1 comes with a pretty classic,yet still unconventional question that I find quite essential in our inner development as bloggers,because it is the kind of question that have endless answers,countless stories to relate to,thus different perspectives for each and every one of us.Seems easy to say it out loud,yet difficult to actually think about it in its complicated entirety.The way we perceive the act itself of writing and we set our goals for what is to come next in the future say a lot about our capacities,as well as the abilities to organize our blogs and to evolve,because I see writing as a way to connect spiritually and emotionally with yourself,as well as with other fellow bloggers.
Hitherto,I’ve been dancing with the words and ideas wrapped up in my head throughout my several posts,which managed to give me so much pride,joy and satisfaction to my own self since the very first one I’ve published,in such a short time.But do you want to know why? Because of you.My readers.The ones who,through such a mere appreciation,good wish or kind thought brought me so many wonderful feelings,a too enthusiastic heart and an incredible trust in my gift.That is still mind-blowing to me and I am forever grateful for doing what I love and constantly evolving into a better and happier person.
Thefore,to be able to answer thruthfully to the main question “Why do I write?” ,I would say it is because I strive to make a difference.I strive to be that positive thought that could make someone’s day a little better and smile larger,merely because we ought to help,encourage and spread our lessons,bright ideas,kindness and guilty pleasures to those around us every single day.
Fact is,my greatest purpose by expressing and opening up my soul here is and will always remain the one which tells me that I could make somebody happy.I could make someone cry.Hell,I could be someone’s source of inspiration.I could make a difference in someone’s daily thoughts,feelings or brighten up their days.I could have the power to evoke some pure,authentic feelings through my words.My own pieces could have a positive impact over someone’s mind and soul.These thoughts literally make my heart warm,steady,excited and keep me going on the right track,because I am a believer in the good of everything.I believe in people,especially,and the raw way of healing one another by sticking together,loving and empowering each other through it all.
I reach after to inspire,to learn,to discover,to grow and to believe in what it is mine,while being inspired and touched by the ones around me.
If is one essential thing I have learned and have counted on it faithfully by now,is that change is so damn good and such a bold move for those who dare to live.Be it about a change in your daily behaviour,thoughts,feelings,a change of background,a change of places ,of work,of plans or even a major change in your self development process,there is always something benefic,inspirational and merely refreshing in making a difference.
With or without our will,we are faced with changes all the time.Life puts us on edge countlessly,in order to bring out what is the best within us,as well as to be a quick challenge for ourselves,whether or not we will lose our authenticity along the road. Regardless its nature,the way we cope with the effects that a change produces in our lives on a daily basis is the main difficulty here.While some may have a clear and healthy perspective of life,thinking with excitement and purely opening their hearts in front of a new opportunity to learn,grow and evolve,others may not have the same attitude of dealing with the insecurities and risks that a change might include.
Nevertheless,what is right on this matter?
First of all,change means SACRIFICE.Either we’re speaking about a relationship between two people,a family,a friendship situation or even getting a job or a place in a whole new city/country/state,you have to consider that along the countless hours of hardwork that had finally paid off,there has to be some sort of compromise that you need to overcome and that may or may not stand in the way of your utter happiness.Now,in order to do this,you have to prioritize your feelings,as well as your desires for your own self.You need to stand your ground and truly reflect on what does this new change will mean to you and your loved ones as well.You could answer yourself the following questions:
Is this change going to be a step closer in fulfilling my dreams?
Will it make me truly happy and content with myself,regardless how many people I may left behind?
In 5 years from now,is my decision still going to make me proud?
What will I gain is better from what will I have to lose in the process?
Reaching this point,I tend to believe that no amount of questions could compete with your determined heart to achieve what you’ve got on your mind.There’s nothing stronger than what your soul tells you to do.So,just follow it.Follow your heart.Believe in your intuition.They can do no wrong.They would certainly lead you into the best place you could be at that certain stage in your life.
Secondly,change expects TRUST.To have such a belief and confidence in yourself as to know that the differences and challenges that appear on your journey serve the main purpose of shaping you into a better,wiser,more experienced,as well as a happier human being is something not many people entirely own.Why not? This should all of us be asking.Why should we let fear or doubt dominate our hearts instead of joyful emotions that could actually do us some good,like faith,hope or elation for what is to come next? The world itself is made of changes.
I guess that what a lot of us fail to realize at times is that believing in your own self is the best thing you could always do,regardless anything that may interfere unexpectedly in our lives.Thruth is,most of the changes that happen in life come in the most unexpected shapes,perhaps at the most uncertain times.You cannot control what your life is going to bring to you,but you do have a say in what can or can not control you.It is all up to you,from how you look at your own person to how you interpret whatever it is purposely given to you.Easy as that.
Lastly,change involves BOLDNESS.As beneficial as change indeed is,it doesn’t always pay an easy price thus it takes a lot of courage to actually go for it and take a step forward towards living your dreams.It may seem unsure,unpredictable,scary at some times,but everything that matters is how you are going to take charge of your life and the decisions,along with the sacrifices you are willing or not to make.
Personally,I love to embrace every change that comes my way and associate it with an ideal chance to develop myself,to expand my horizons of feeling and thinking,to discover,to learn,to become richer in knowledge and memories,as well as to evolve into the best person I could be.
How do you perceive the changes you come across in life?
