I greeted the New Year with all the positivity I could find in me and planned the heck out of it. It’s only been a week and I have already read a book and have watched five movies. The New Year always brings a great promise, a promise that the dreams will come true and things will be exactly the way I wish them to be. I know it isn’t true or even healthy to believe, nevertheless, this is my reflex. I am one of those people who hardly stay awake after ten O’clock, but, there is something glamorous about the New Year’s Eve.
So, this year, for the very first time, I experienced the cliched moment of striking the clock twelve and feeling Utopia can very well be earth, with my friends. We weren’t in a club, soaked in liquor but in bed, discussing the spiritual realm.
The possibility of souls being trapped in purgatory or possibly they don’t or can’t leave because there is no afterlife, everything is here and now, no there and later. The possession of the human body and the extent of its destruction. There are so many strands being tied around our neck, I don’t understand why we choose to add to it. Anyway, there were a lot more to our skull session than just, spiritual realm.
And soon the yackety-yak turned into yawning and, the New Year was here.
Humans, even the predictable ones do not love the idea of monotony. We all crave change, a clean slate, a fresh start that a NEW YEAR brings. Another chance to try for things we want, we need, we wish.
But, is it enough? Just having a New Year. Making a resolutions’ list, only to disregard it. Isn’t it so much comfortable to just go back to the old habits, feeling somewhat accomplished because we tried.
I watched a TED TALK the other day where the speaker said that the major problem with current living Humans is that we are okay with just trying. We do not strive to accomplish or to be the best. We believe it is healthier to be easy on ourselves but in this process, we forget to give our everything, to try with every ounce of energy we have, only because trying is enough.
At first, I thought that he is being unreasonable because the thought of accepting that I am also one of these Humans was not something I wanted to entertain but as I kept on watching and he kept on explaining, I was in the category he wanted me. It didn’t lead to an epiphany, but it was definitely a pinch from reality.
A pinch to wake me enough to start making changes, slowly. Today I start blogging again, I do not remember why I stopped, but It doesn’t matter anymore.
So, this year I am not just going to make resolutions, I am going to make a life I want. Because I don’t want life to be a ‘Moo Point.’
March was a month full of an empty feeling and somehow fulfilling at the same time.
I went on a road trip with one of my closest friends which was really amazing and something we’ve been planning for months.
I finished my creative writing course and now I feel a little bit professional. The class was an amazing and enlightening experience. In the class, I met so many intellectually developed and mentally skilled people. It was really hard to say goodbye and to accept that we won’t be discussing topics in the class every day.
I saw the Beauty and the Beast (La Beaut et la Beast) with my sister and it was amazing. I mean Emma Watson and a Disney production, it had to be amazing.
There was a lot more activity in the month but above events were a little more significant.
Mentally- I feel refreshed and ready to try writing in a different way.
Physically- I think it was the best month yet.
Conclusion- There’s always tomorrow (I hope).
Let’s experience this world in its raw form and let the adrenaline make us mad.
Humans have opinions and what doesn’t match theirs is abnormal.
Try, it’s the least we all can do,
Outcome, it’s the most we all can expect.
We call Nature our mother,
And we do treat her like one,
After we are all grown up.
It’s never about where you are,
It’s always about who you are.
I don’t have a crazy busy schedule so I get a lot of time to just be at home and write. Even though I am taking three courses simultaneously I easily get 3 to 4 days in a week to just unwind, work on this blog and do the things I love.
I am a morning person, I don’t like to sleep in so my days are usually pretty long and I get more than 12 hours to get my work done which is a satisfying amount of time.
But sometimes I have zero motivation to do anything and since I am going to be at home the whole day I just want to stay in my comfortable bed and watch youtube videos or read blogs. But it is not the most productive activity and after a while, it adds to my boredom. So I have jotted down 3 things that make my day as fruitful as possible and I am pretty sure it is going to help you too if you have similar problems. Let’s take a look.
As I’ve mentioned above I love watching creative videos and reading blogs. So what I do is instead of just reading the blogs and watching the videos I make notes while I do it. I write whatever I find interesting or anything that will help me grow. So this way I am not just entertaining myself but I am also learning something new which is the ultimate goal isn’t it.
I am a person who overthinks everything, overanalyzes everything which is a huge problem. So to overcome that instead of just being sad after judging everything I really like to dig up a solution. The best way to do it is to go on internet and type in whatever you want to know because there is an 110 percent chance that somebody has already found a solution to what you think is an unanswerable question. Or just talk to somebody because no two people usually have the same opinion on something and they can end up providing you a whole new perspective.
And the last thing that helps me be creative or constructive is when I make something. It can be as simple as making a cup of coffee or making a poster or just doodling. Because you need to start somewhere, you cannot come up with a world-changing concept on the first attempt or maybe you can and if you can I respect you a lot. But for people like me, it takes a few tries so what I do is I will make that cup of coffee so amazing that it is Instagram-worthy and it usually ends up giving me an idea to write something or learn something new.
So you see inspiration can come from anywhere and anytime, you just need to welcome it with open arms. These are the few things that have helped me be whatever I am today *a very small blogger and someone who is way too obsessed with her Instagram*. And I hope they help you too to be creative and passionate and hope they make you try something new.
Until next time keep on exploring and stay awesome.
