Ya know, we don't usually do things without having a reason behind them. We eat to satisfy our hunger. We work to get the money we need to survive. We have certain hobbies because we enjoy doing them. So I suppose you could say that most of the things we do are guided by some kind of a reason; maybe even a mission. But fulfilling dreams is a bigger thing altogether, it isn't as black and white as like, eating to survive. I think that to get what we want more effectively, we need some kind of guide. A guide of our own creation. A "Mission".
I mean, most of the time we have the gist of what we want to do. But unfortunately, those dreams just sit in our head, and they never surface and shine like they should. Why? Well, life today is more complicated than it used to be. People have to work even harder to keep what they have, and time has turned into more of a scarce resource than is healthy. Our dreams lay dormant inside our heads, inspiring us for a few brief moments. But the stress and demands of life overpower this inspiration, and hence we never get that trigger to begin bringing our dreams to life. The only way we can reclaim time is to carve it out yourself.
But what if you had an external guide? Your dreams personified into a single sentence that you can look at everyday. If we choose to give ourselves a mission, instead of living life aimlessly, we have something to look up to that is all our own. Dreams can lose their way in the rush hour traffic of deadlines and worries driving around your mind at 90 miles an hour. So take them out of there and turn it into something that you can see everyday. Write it down and hang it on your wall. Make it the screen saver on your computer. Whatever it takes to get you to be constantly reminded of what you really want to do and be in life. You will find that soon enough, you will no longer need this mission on paper, because it is now a true part of you after seeing it for so long.
On a side note, I'm terribly sorry for not updating in so long, and I thank any readers who actually check my blog :D So a grand thank you to y'all.
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 I keep it around for nostalgic purposes, but it is quite obviously no longer updated.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.
