Good morning guys, I hope you all are having a great day! I deeply apologize for not being able to update my blog regularly like I used to. Reason being that my hands and mind is on a tight schedule. I won’t disclose what I’ve been doing since I don’t really like to brag about myself, but I finally decided to at least boost my blog with this mini post and in flow let you know that I am still alive!
Life hasn’t been easy these past couple of days. Sometimes hope rises, sometimes it crashes. Sometimes there are good news, other times, no news (which is also good news, but it only makes the heart restless) We human beings are created with so little patience. It’s pretty hard to suppress your feelings and put on a smiling face but you do it anyway. I kept and keep telling myself that everything will be alright because I do believe that everything WILL turn out alright and that a road without any oil spill or thorny bushes is right ahead of me. All you have to do is keep going, no matter how hard it is for you, or how exhausted you are. You GOTTA keep walking. You HAVE to reach your destination. You can’t book a ticket and not get on the plane, right?
I’ve been staying strong and I’ve been trying to move forward with all my might. Sometimes (most often) I just want to close everything and lay down on my bed and just doze off to another world. But you know what stops me from doing that? Guilt. Yes, the moment I spend ten or twenty minutes doing nothing, I start to feel guilty that I’ve been wasting my time and that I could’ve at-least written three to five hundred words in those ten-twenty precious minutes…
Don’t even ask how I or the other writers are surviving. We’re always the one chasing, and remarkably the ones catching too. We are a game of cat and mouse itself.
Alas, there’s nothing anyone can do to get us out of our messy situation.
But you know what? With Hardship comes Ease.
That’s the beauty of it.
That’s the sole purpose of tiring ourselves. We need that satisfaction. That rare feeling of happiness that seldom blooms. Only those who don’t give up midway can taste that sweetness of success. Only those who don’t stop doing what they are meant to do can at long last sleep continually for days and wake up knowing that “OMG YASS!” They have done it.
Nevertheless, it doesn’t stop there.
No, that merriment, that seventh heaven feeling is only there for a few days because knock knock, another project, another story, another venture is on your door.
Or you could say, that’s the life of a writer.
But I’m pretty sure all those who’re working; be it freelancer or plain 9-5 business individuals, they go through the same emotions and stages as we do.
Perhaps they have more severe episodes, or maybe less, nonetheless, what matters is that we stay strong, we hold on, we don’t drown, and we move on until we see the break of dawn.
Anyhow, I’m sorry for rambling but I also feel good to just spill my feelings and thoughts here. My head and heart feel light and possibly, I can take a nice little power nap and then wake up refreshed and get up to work! (Like a miner)
I want you guys to stay persistent too! Don’t give up! Never!
If you do, I guarantee that you’ll regret it. If not more, at the least an ants weight you’ll regret it.
Do. Not. Give. Up.
May your dreams come true!
That’s all I’ll say for today. Thank you to all those who’ve read this, understood this, pondered upon my words and were glad to see me post again.
I’ll try to be active on my blog! (No promises though, I don’t like making promises that I know I can’t keep)
See you in my next post~
I’M THE WRITER NEXT DOOR!
