Deep Stuff #298
While on my path toward self-discovery (my god that sounds deep...), I've found a few things. My hardback copy of TREASURE ISLAND, for one. And that rebellious little blue ink pen that always seems to disappear exactly when I need a blue pen...
Oh, but I also found some stuff you'll care about. Unless you like TREASURE ISLAND. And let's face it, who doesn't?
So, whilst one is journeying toward self-discovery, I've found one of the most important things to do is to set your sights on who/what you want to be, and weed out any actions/activities that do not further your ultimate vision. Such as not doing things you want to/have the impulse to do if they do not put a brick in your soon-to-be-fully-constructed House of a Better You.
Ooo, I'm on a deep-streak tonight.
What does this have to do with writing? Well, lately I've been forcing myself to write. And read. And write some more. Because the Sara I want to end up as is a Sara who writes and reads and writes some more, even if the current Sara doesn't really want to or doesn't really have the motivation. I do these things because I want the vision I have in my head to become who I am, not merely a vision. And sitting around, hoping that vision magically pops into existence, didn't work for me. At all. In fact, I spent about a year hoping it would only to end up as the exact same person I was at the beginning of the year.
Basically, be who you want to be. Even if who you want to be isn't who you feel like at that moment. Some days it will be. And those days will be worth it.
