Day (324) – A New Age

“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.” – Hemingway
Deep deep down within us, we have something that many of us have not addressed. That something may be incredibly different for each person, but we are fighting the same battle. The battle not against what is deep down in the crevasses of our heart, but the fight against denial. I came to this realization a long time ago, but recently the importance of acceptance came back into the front of my mind. It would brought to my mind through the actions of another person.
Around this time last year, I wrote a piece about a few lessons that my teacher taught me before your school break. What he said was that we must accept our current condition before we are able to make lasting and meaningful changes (Post is called Fr. Mc.). He went on to say that our duty as humans is to do good in the world, and if we fail to recognize the weak spots within us, then these links will get exploited by negativity. We fail to realize our true potential because of our ignorance of pure denial of a weak spot in our armor. This causes disaster.
Know your outcome. It doesn’t matter how scary your goal is, you have to know exactly what your outcome is going to look like. What it is going to feel like, who is going to be around you, what you will be doing, how you will be acting…the list goes on. You must aim high and continue to push yourself each and every day. Without this push, we settle just like silt in the bottom of a river. Don’t sink. I know we have all had that feeling before of not doing what we were meant to be doing. It drags us down. Whenever I had this feeling, I asked myself if I was actually doing what I was thinking and preaching. Usually the answer is no. Then, with this realization of my current condition, I know exactly what I have to do. Get in action.
Start each and every new day with an appreciation that you are here and that you have been given the opportunity to do something amazing in the world. I can’t tell you how incredible it feels to be doing what I am doing right now. To be able to sit here and write my heart out on the paper. Even more…I am so grateful for the courage and strength to go forwards with my dream and create an actual book. Something that will I will frame and put on my wall as a testament to the power of dreams. So I challenge you to dream big, and to accept the fact that your dream may take years of hard work, but eventually, you will get there. Nothing worth doing is easy. However, it is in those moments that you power through the hard times that makes you into an unstoppable piece of human momentum.
I have one small request from everyone. If you are interested in the book, please please please like this page or shoot me a comment with your email. I will moderate the comment to secure your privacy and delete it once I have the email. I am trying to get a grip on shipping and how much it will cost and all of the customs issues. So please head over to the Facebook page, or just leave me a comment here. I cannot wait for the day that I send these across the world.
Once again, thank you for all the support.
