Here’s why I started writing my own blog publicly:
For the past couple years, I’ve had a hard time trying to figure out where I belong in life. Broken down a few times – you know – the usual stuff. And then at the end of 2015, I decided I’d really had enough.
I used my resolutions wisely – like writing a list for a genie in a lamp that I might meet during 2016. I decided I want to – first and foremost – beme. I want to stop trying to be something I’m not, and start trying to be something that Ican be.
All the optimistic/positive/way-too-happy people that say ‘you have no limits’, ‘you can do anything’, ‘reach for the skies’? Do you think that’s really true?It might be. But this is for sure – you have qualities and shortcomings that only you have. You have to build on your qualities, and forget your shortcomings.
For instance, some of my positives – I have a silly amount of random knowledge about cars. I can write anything. I’ve got an abundance of common-sense and patience.
And some of my negatives – I don’t communicate well. I’m not mechanically-minded. I waste a lot of time doing things that don’t benefit me whatsoever i.e. an hour on Google, accidentally researching bears.*
Maybe I can change the former negatives I listed. But as my positives state – I can write anything, so I’m putting that skill to good use and improving it.
Moral – Stop trying to be something you aren’t. Be something you canreally be.
*Bears are pretty cool though huh?
