Stop trying to compete with everyone else!! Sorry to be blunt, but sometimes I have to be blunt. Competing with everyone else does not make sense! Your destiny belongs to you and you alone, and their destiny belongs to them. If you spend all of your time trying to be someone else, when will you ever achieve the things that you were destined to do?
We may make assumptions on where our paths are going to end up going, with our own crayon colored imaginary pictures of what we will be, what we will do and where we will be. But I have learned that I don’t really know jack, especially when it comes to assuming where my path is going. I am sure if I drew a map of where I started and drew [stick figures as everyone knows that I can’t really draw] my imaginary accomplishments and moments where I thought I would be at ….. It would resemble a nicely laid out Life game. But the joke was and has been on…
The idea for this blog entry started out as just ramblings about sometimes feeling out of place. It however took a whole other direction and went somewhere I did not expect it to. I have learnt not to force my words and to just let them flow out my head and sometimes even my heart without much filtering. As such this post has now changed from one entry …into a few [will post the others throughout the week]. As always I will hope that it is as honest as it can be, there may be moments of diversion; but if you are not new to this blog, you already know…
We should be able to wake up from what should have been a long rested night, with the ability to tell the people who we were destined to interact with, that today is not the day. There should be a Hallmark card for this, I would volunteer to help them create and deliver these cards. .....These days are essentially my way of screaming for an emotional flush…..
Forgive me, it has been a while since I have written and I am still retraining my thoughts to bounce around my brain in some sequential order; clearly it is a work in progress.
I started thinking about the roles/characters that we play in our lives and tried to compare them to what we play for others. Somehow there always appears to be some disconnect between the two and the discrepancy didn’t seem to reconcile as we grow older, but instead grow wider.
what I can appreciate is that we all play so many different roles throughout each day to achieve different tasks and for different people, many of our roles require different skill sets and sometimes we have to pull on various emotions and inner voices, to master each role (we don’t have magical capes or the ability to move at the speed of light).
I wonder how many of us live similar lives to this character. How many of us are surrounded by people who have accepted the roles that society have dished out and who try to break us into the pre described molds. Are we haunted with dreams/nightmares where we keep reaching out to a hidden image of ourselves, slightly out of reached, but blocked by negative energy, limitations and our own fears? I think that the path to self-discovery is not always paved with roses, sometimes there are boulders and detours along the way.
