“Life is a competition.” You’ve probably heard this before. So did I. But I never liked the idea.
And this is not just because I don’t like competitions. I actually don’t believe they are that effective.
I hate the pressure of competition. It stresses me out and I don’t give the best of me when I’m stressed.
Each person is so unique and special that it makes no sense to compare or to enter into a competition with each other. Competition implies there are limited places. And this is simply not true in life.
What I believe is that life is a test. A test of compatibility to see if we can harmonize ourselves with God.
Life is made of chances to adjust yourself and become compatible with God. We are free to do whatever we want with the chances we get. But when the line is drawn, we receive the results.
The reward for passing this test is life. Life for the amount of time that the Person you are compatible with has.
We are our thoughts and to share them means letting our presence be felt into the world.
I’ve been thinking of starting a blog for years now.
And I did start a few that I deleted or abandoned after a couple of posts. I thought the posts weren’t good enough, my English was not good enough and that maybe I didn’t have anything interesting to say, after all.
The biggest fear was that people would find what I write stupid or worst, that they’d laugh about it.
I kept writing, publishing, deleting or abandoning. I also kept saving ideas of posts I want to write. There are over a hundred notes tagged “blog post” in my Evernote. I keep saving ideas for some day…
I have no other choice than to do this. The thought of it won’t leave me alone.
Today I had this intense and strong feeling that this is the day my blog should be born.
And here it is. It is birthed. It is born.
I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about what I want to write. It’s been one of the things that stopped me from doing it. I think it’s best to go with what matters the most to me, and here it is:
- what’s behind appearances
- the human mind
- goals, plans and dreams
- personal development
To new beginnings and an end to procrastination!
I hope you’ll enjoy this blog.
Thank you for reading.
