Every lesson I learn in life always ends up having the same general theme to it… When I do what I want, things turn out much better for me.
Now this works I think because I’m mostly a decent person. I don’t really think that deep down, anyone’s version of “doing what they want” would start out by them wanting to do bad things. The world is a fucked up place, full of judgmental and insecure people trying to fit us into one box or another. Each time our unique shapes are forced into a certain mold, it wears us down, dissolves our natural instincts, and stifles our spirits.
I think most people want to be successful, have good intentions, be strong and help others be strong, follow their spirit instead of others’ judgements, and most importantly – be happy.
I’m no happiness guru. I am pretty cynical, I suffer from occasional bouts of depression, I’m emotionally high maintainence, and have a few suitcases full of PTSD. Years of therapy has allowed me to become high functioning although still definitely mentally ill.
But what I can say is that I do work every day to be myself and be happy.
So that is what this blog is about. It’s evolved from two other blogs where I was worried about catering to my audience too much. I was putting myself in a box. I like to provide useful information – part of what makes me happy is inspiring others. However I realized, in another lesson learned, that I inspire best when I’m showing the world they can do anything they want regardless of popular belief.
