Daily Blog #259
*Fair warning, this may turn into a full on rant, but I want to share with you a lot of what has been on my mind lately.*
When I first started sharing my personal life and blogging on a daily basis, there was so much uncertainty that consumed my thoughts. I was uncertain about what others would think of me if I told them that I had a blog, uncertain if writing was even the right way to try and make a difference, uncertain if sharing my story would be a waste of time, and even more uncertain if daily blogging for a full year was something that I could actually accomplish.
I have never really had a good track record when it comes to making commitments, especially commitments that would require me doing them more than once. Everytime that I had always tried something new in the past, I would start, experience one small hiccup, and give up. I used to think of it as God’s way of telling me that I was supposed to be doing whatever it was that I was struggling with.
Somehow, though, I have managed to find the strength and fight off every single one of these uncertainties with writing. It has not always been easy, and in fact, there have been many times where I have wanted to raise the white flag, say screw it, and move onto the next idea that popped into the endless cycle of thoughts that fill my brain.
But in looking back, I am glad that I didn’t quit. I am glad that I never raised the white flag, and that I found the motivation and strength to keep pushing through all of the uncertainties. It helped all of the uncertainty in my life become all too certain. It wasn’t God telling me that I should be on a different path. It was God telling me that I need to work hard for my dreams, and that I need to fight through the adversity.
As I sit here in work today, I can’t help but tell myself that this is exactly what I want to be doing with my life. When I say this, I mean writing, trying to inspire others to live to their true potential, and simply doing what it is that I can to make the world a better place. I want to break free from the chains of this 5×5 cubicle, travel the world, and live my best life. All of this while simultaneously trying to help and improve the lives of others as well.
It may seem like a far fetch for some, but I know that this is what I was meant to do with my life. I know that I am worthy of achieving my dreams, I know that I am capable of greatness, and I know that I deserve to live my best life. With a little more work and a positive mindset, who knows where I will be in the months to come. Honestly, it isn’t for me to decide. What I do know is that I am not stopping, and I will not back down from any obstacle that gets in my way. No matter how many times I get knocked down in life, you better believe that I am going to get right back up even stronger than I was before.
I didn’t write this to show you all that I am doing. I wrote this to show you that if you are uncertain about something, you will never know what could have been or what might be unless you just go for it. Something that I used to fear, and something that used to cause enormous doubt in my mind has now become one of my greatest passions. Because I decided to go for it, not only is it providing me happiness, but I now know that this is what I am meant to do.
Whatever you want to accomplish in life, just go for it. Do whatever it is that you can do in order to turn your dreams into a reality. If you never try to follow your dreams, and if you never take a chance on yourself, then you will never know what you are capable of achieving. You and I, we were born to achieve greatness. We were born to turn all of the uncertainties in life into certainties. So let’s do it!
