Looking at myself. Still looking at myself. Still trying to figure out how this blog will roll. It has been quite a battle of wit in getting the right design for this site. I actually had another theme but now I’ve switched to different theme, something that has a better image and fit for the type of writing I want to share with my readers. Such changes as I’ve realized are a necessary evil in figuring out your place in the world. Wait? Changing themes means changes in the world? Well, I don’t mean to be over dramatic but there is a purpose behind it. I remembered Steve Job’s words that are echoing in every empty unfulfilled crevices in my mind, most of you know it as:
Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle
It’s powerful. Do what you love but keep finding it until it fulfills you completely. It does seem selfish, almost callous. It’s a necessary path one must take to truly find inspiration. The kind of energy that gets you up in the morning without an alarm. The energy that drives you without artificial stimulants, nor perturbed by the negative bickering of your non-constructive critics. How do you know if you found it? That’s a tough question, and every human being is trying to answer this question in some form or another throughout their lives. This, however, means many will never find it due to reasons within or without their control. It doesn’t stop me from trying. Just keep biting and chewing and eventually, the sweet-spot will be found. Disregard failure as an indication to stop, only use it as stepping stone that tells you where you should be going. Be open-minded to the fact that things may fall in your path and they won’t necessarily be a hump in the journey but may even turn out to be an option that you can try. Unexpected results are inevitable but the desire will still remain, so don’t focus on the destinations and just absorb what you experience.
The common denominator in the search of fulfilment starts with questions and not answers. Answers are unique to specific people and it may be temporary. Questions on the other hand are timeless and anyone can ask it. So ask the questions, even the hard ones and the right answers will follow. You will know it’s right. Trust your instincts, follow your energy…
