Good morrow peeps!
Well it has been a while since I’ve written something decent hasn’t it? I feel terrible not living up to my own goals and promises to you lot. Some form of guilt and it doesn’t feel right. But things are past doing and have gone by, the only thing I can do now is keep working forward and try to improve.
In all honesty I was caught up in the whole idea of vlogging and youtube, that has kept me busy for a long time. It’s no excuse, but when you find something new and interesting, sometimes it’s easy to lose focus on the things you did before. I’m the kind of person that will go full throttle and in that proces I sometimes lose perspective or in this scenario: I only had eyes for my newest idea.
I think I’ve had some many new ideas lately that I got a big caught up in everything. There was this blog, what my first ‘invention’ and after that came the podcast, youtube and god knows I want to post everything everywhere. Combined with school and all the things going on my local footballclub, I started to lose the plot basically. Add that to the factor I haven’t been feeling well for weeks now, well yeah. It’s only logical I had to take some kind of break. In no way an excuse, but I just wanted to clarify a few things for you guys.
Having said that, it’s time to focus on the present and the future. The immediate future, making goals and list that are realistic for my own person. That’s what it’s all about in my opinion. Some many people have the same goals or tend to listen to some kind of ‘guru’ saying ; THIS SHOULD BE YOUR GOAL AND IF YOU DON’T ACCOMPLISH THIS YOU ARE A LOSER. Well I get allergic reactions from that kind of manipulation. Every person is different and you should keep that in mind. Every step you take is important, how small or large it is, doesn’t matter my dear friends. It’s the fact that you want to set goals and to reach them, that’s the real victory and don’t let people tell you otherwise. Even me 😉
Normally I want to get my readers motivated on Monday and that still my primary objective, but once in a while I need the motivation as well. That’s nothing strange is it? Sure I was a bit lost before christmas, but after christmas everyone needs a bit motivation. 3 days of doing nothing gets to you one way or another. It’s great talking to relatives and eating loads of food. The mentality of christmas eating is caught brilliantly by the american comedian Louis CK:
I don’t stop eating when I’m full. The meal isn’t over when I’m full. It’s over when I hate myself.
Searching for inspiration is maybe one of the most beautiful things in live in my opinion. For me that means reading or listening to speeches from my idols. They can be serious, funny or typical, I don’t care. So long as it makes me comfortable with myself and gets me going on the beginning of the week. As you have read my earlier blogposts, you will know I find great inspiration in Shakespeare or Churchill. But other role models in my life have certainly had their impact and this morning it had to be the Oasis brothers Noel en Liam Gallagher. They are a crazy bunch of lads, but have such a great influence on my life and they gave me something to think: stay positive!
“I can’t write songs about being young and unemployed, because I’m not”
That really got to me, you have be positive realistic. Why should you bring yourself down? Why look at the side where there’s less light? Always push yourself to look away from the dark and live in the light people. That is my merry message today and I will get productive. I will promise you that. In my own pace ofcourse, but still you have to do things that feel right and that is what I intend to do.
