Fragments of Time
Posted on October 16, 2013
That moment when you feel so alive. Incredible right? Probably the best feeling in the world – when you truly lose yourself in a moment. Could you do that for more than a moment – you sure could. You could lost in a day, in a week, in a year…and the only way to get there is to create that for yourself. Of course its possible – I am doing it right now. Sitting here at the end of the day writing down my thoughts and doing what I am doing during the daytime is my dream. And soon enough, that dream is going to take off even more. Full speed ahead!
Now, what I want to write about is what happens when these crazy things that you dreamed about start happening in your life. It is really easy to settle and sit back on what you have done. But you can’t stop there, you have to ride that wave. You have to keep pushing yourself to see just how far you can really go. Because only those who test their boundaries and sail to the edges of their mind get to figure out just how far one can travel. And the thing is, that is an experience you will have for the rest of your life – one that you can build on for years and years to come.
“Remember that time you really really pushed yourself and what you got out of it?” Yes I do Evan
So the question really is “How are you going to define your future?” Many will argue that the future belongs to no one. I respectfully disagree. And how am I going to disagree? I am going to disagree by showing you the route I am going and showing you how I am building my dream. Because anyone can say they are going to do something, but there are few who actually do it. I respect the big dreamers – I am one. But I respect the doers a little bit more primarily because I know how hard it is to grind it out every single day. It is almost impossible at times to do what you said you were going to do, especially when you are tired and worn out. But you just keep doing what you have to do. Day in and day out. Then, when you finally put your head up and see what you have done…you can smile.
What type of life will you create for yourself?
The Better Man Project
I agree. I have been working hard daily on what many would deem an ‘impossible dream,’ becoming a working professional musician. It’s amazing what regular daily effort can achieve. Good luck in your endeavors! (Though it doesn’t sound like you need luck!)
Live, be, and do. I aim to live an inspired life. I want to really live, not just survive. Thank you Evan for your insights! I am smiling today.
daft punk has always been amazing.. even back when I was in middle school lol
My dad is always quoting “Yoda” to me lol – “Do or do not. There is no try.” Drives me absolutely crazy, but he’s right, as are you. Things don’t take care of themselves. You have to be the one to do it. I have to be the one to do it. 🙂
