Ahem….hi…yo….. hello? Ah screw it, welcome to OR. This is my FIRST post on my FIRST blog, and for me, it really is a dive into the unknown. I’ve never been an avid follower of blogs; Vlogs were always more to my fancy. But as copy writing demand dries up over the Christmas break, I’ve been looking for an outlet to sooth my creative itch.
Quick note to website owners: The world doesn’t stop turning because Santa's fat ass is coming down a chimney. Let’s get back to work people!
I’ll be documenting aspects of my life, travels, interests and hobbies, as I close on the end of my studies, and look to establish my next few steps and ultimately a career path. However, flourishing my literary paint brush isn’t my only motivation in creating this blog. Check out this statement and see what you think.
‘At the age of 18, you’ve now progressed to a worker bee, and you’ll see out your days as such until your retirement. At which age, sickness will swiftly take you whilst life has already passed you by”.
This isn’t the life that most people want to lead, far from it. Ideally, most of us would like to pursue our passions whilst striving for self-actualisation, to learn to accept ourselves 'as is', rather than strive for the standards set by others . It would take several lifetimes to achieve a total sense of fulfilment, going through life on a hit and miss basis, trying to learn from the pain of each mistake. However, I believe there’s another solution, one that allows us to gain that knowledge without ever partaking in the journey, and that’s through sharing.
"Wise men learn from their own mistakes, but wiser men learn from the mistakes of others."
Everyone has their own story. No two life experiences are ever the same. That breeds a wisdom that is unique to each individual, a slice of wisdom that no one else has. In short, we all have something to share AND something to learn from one another. Through 6 billion individual wisdom's and truths, we CAN learn to achieve self-actualisation, to even turn that into a career. We CAN strive to reach self-acceptance through the tribulations faced by an individual half-way around the world.
THAT, is the point of this blog.
I want to encourage the sharing of that wisdom, to stimulate discussion and the meeting of minds. I want to teach what I’ve learnt, to share what I’m currently learning, and to hopefully find out what I’m still to learn, with the help of you guys.
So stay tuned for posts every Tuesday and Friday, possibly more in the near future as I get used to this posting malarky. I'll see you all on my next post, ciao :)
