I tried to think of a actual topic, but sometimes the mind just can't spawn anything worth discussing. So I'm just gonna talk a little. Just about what's running through my mind right now. Take from it what you will.
I'm not content. There is always a battle of sorts going on in my head. There are so many things that I want, but so many things that I need also. And the state of the world isn't helping. You know how the economy is. It's almost like I can feel some of my dreams slipping away. That juvenile game known as Politics rages on. People bicker and argue about things that should not be on a pedestal. Yeah... this all kinda sucks.
But there are so many good things as well. But the best good things are the ones that are simple. I like to watch the sun rise. A new day. It almost feels like a blissful awakening. Smooth breezes and flowing streams of water. Calmness. I also take time to look away from myself and look at the plight of others, and see how lucky I really am. When you can see the beauty in things where there appears to be none, you are a wise individual.
But there are still things I want to improve. I want to decipher the secrets to genuinely good writing. If people read anything I wrote on this blog and felt some kind of connection, then that would be a victory. A piece of writing is a small thing, but the simplest things can make you the happiest. And who doesn't want to be a better person? At least that's something to strive for.
So we are at a uncertain point in time. Many different things can happen, and the paths can branch off into many different futures. But I still think that there are constants no matter what will happen. We still have to take time to enjoy the simple things in life. We should have goals, and try not to let them be dampened by what is happening around us. If it was my time to leave this world tomorrow, would I be content with myself and what I've done? We have the choice to make the answer to that a "yes".
A not very timely note
This was a blog I once wrote during my high school and early college years. I keep it around for nostalgic purposes, but it is quite obviously no longer updated. I am looking to make a more professional blog presence in the future, but I still like to look at where I was mentally at certain points in time.
