|Living your dreams now.|
But however simply stated it was, it just illuminated me. He realized that if he wanted to be a writer, he should write. That's it.Sometimes in life we see ourselves wanting to be someone yet we don't know how to be that person. We feel powerless, frustrated thinking that it's just another dream, just another desire, a wonderful thing that comes and goes just like the morning. But just like the morning it always goes back. It shows up and we either wallow in frustration or we take it, embrace it, and be one with it; be in the moment with it.
I've been wanting to do something for quite a long time now but I always go back to square one. Somehow I don't know how to get there. But in my journey on finding some answers, I came across Paolo Coehlo's interview with Oprah. There he told his journey of becoming a magnificent writer. He said he'd always wanted to be a writer, and so whenever he was asked what he does, he would always say, a writer. But however simply stated it was, it just illuminated me. He realized that if he wanted to be a writer, he should write. That's it. He should start somewhere and start now. No wonder gurus have been telling us to start today, no matter how unprepared we are, we need to start now. Start small, start awful, start well. It doesn't matter how we start it, the important thing is to start it NOW.
And so here I am, writing. from what started as a paragraph full of sentences filled with I ams. Here I am writing spontaneously. I'm not bragging that I'm great, in fact I know I'm not, though I can't say that I am bad either. But at least I can say that I write, whenever people ask me what I do for fun. I'm not yet there but I'm happy I wasn't where I was before.
You see once you start, you'd see hope that your dream would in time be a reality. I'd take that than settle for nothing.
