Everyday I read about extraordinary things people do and things being accomplished and I wonder what is wrong with me. Why can't I do what they are doing? Sometimes it very clear what I want in life, but when the pressure comes I don't know what I want any more. I know I want to be different things, I know I want to be a writer, but as it stands now my back aches so badly, I haven't even had my first salary as a writer, the contract I was hoping for doesn't seem to be forth coming. I say to myself is it worth it. I want to be very rich, travel the world, make an impact in the world, but as it stands, I am not even sure what I have in my bank account. How then can I travel the world? Make an impact in the world? I see a blogger and then I hear, oh she has 20,000 followers daily and then I say to myself what does she write that I cannot write. People who are at the very top, what do they do that I do not? How many heads do they have? How many cells do they have in their brains?
Often times we get so discouraged that we don't want to continue again. We are so frustrated that life just doesn't seem fair. Someone said that sometimes reality is to painful to bare, sometimes illusion is the way forward. Yes we can have choose to live in a fantasy world or we can chose to see reality as it is and try to make the most of it.
After my hours of self pity, I have risen to tell you that no matter what I am not giving up. I have a passion for what I am doing and I will continue to do it. I know nothing good comes easy, but I will develop the patience to wait.
Everybody has one life time to live, make sure you achieve all that you set out to do, before it is to late.
P.s: this week do something extraordinary. Pick up that book and read, enroll for that course, start that business, learn how to drive a car or ride a power bike. Whatever you have a passion for do it now before it is too late.

  1. ...sometimes illusion is the way forward.
    THAT was a very remarkable statement you made, and if looked deeply holds a whole lot of truth.
    in fact Joseph Jacob the 11th son of Jacob in the bible would surety your statement, he lived in his fantasy/dream world till he began living his fantasy.
    i am glad to know that you know that you can do it no matter the odds, i am sure glad that you are one of those who say thorns have roses instead of saying roses have thorns.
    keep going on, one day you may be the beam of light that will break my darkness of the fear of the uncertainty.
