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 I keep it around for nostalgic purposes, but it is quite obviously no longer updated.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.

"What Keeps Us Going?" By G.

It's hard to say. The times are getting harder than ever. I've never been one to be a gloomy worrywart, but maybe this world is forcing me to have a metamorphosis. I think everyone's true worst fear is of the unknown. And what is unknown? Hell, many things. I don't know where I'm going, where I'm going to get the money to pay for the things I need, and I wonder what to do next. But I'm still here, and I think there's something that keeps our finger pressed on the play button of our lives. It seems that no matter how bad things get, there is always this tiny, but powerful glmmer of hope, Hope that this country can pull itself out of these rough times. Hope that I'll actually find my calling. Hope that one day I can truly discover myself. But hope is just that; hope. Thoughts have no force behind them unless the keepers of those thoughts choose to act upon them. As long as I continue to believe that I have the power to change something in my life or in the life of someone else, then it's worth it to carry on. To really succeed in anything, you need that combination of brains, motivation, and determination. Most people have one or two of these things, but its that missing piece that eludes them that prevents us from reaching higher. So we trudge onward. Imagine what it would be like to have all our dreams fufilled. It's these things that fuel the need to go on. And I say to you, the path to reaching anything is just one foot after another. One of these days, your going to wake up, rub the sleep out of your eyes, glance in the mirrior and see your most precious dreams be a reality. Until then, keep that fire alive.

I haven't been keeping up with Thoughts of G as much as I should be, but I'm on break for the next few weeks, and I will definitely write up some posts that are worthy of your attention. The past few I've written are disappointing to me, and were probably originated from the guilt of not writing more often... heh. Thank you for visiting this blog, and comment once in while so I know what you think of this stuff! Adios.

I'm looking forward to more posts.

I do enjoy your writing and generally read each post a couple times to more fully appreciate them.

G, great article. You have a very mindful style about your writing of thoughts, I like it!

You seem to have a good grasp of what it takes to hold on during tough times and to also keep enough of that hope to carry through and keep looking ahead. You've clearly got what it takes. Just keep on building that!
