“Anything is possible when you have right friends to support you”
A true friend knows what will make you truly happy and he/she will go to any extent to get it for you. That’s what a buddy of mine did to me this birthday (Sep 6). We gift each other something on our birthdays. But this time, he just gave me a real bad ass pep talk to get some dead juices flowing back again. And here I am — embarking on my writing journey one more time.
Writing has always been a dream that I wanted to pursue. Every new year I resolve to write at least one page every week but it never lasted beyond that first week. Every other task somehow got better of my time and this dream has died many deaths so far. You may argue that I never wanted to write so badly — Well, yes and no. Yes I always wanted to pursue writing (seriously) but just kept on procrastinating to a time when I will have all the free time in the world. I would always tell my friends — “I will start writing after I retire”. (as ridiculous as it as can get, right?)
All said and done, this is another restart attempt :). Am sure I am not the only one who has been through these cycles for something you want to achieve. My 5 year old girl always tells me “Papa, if you fail, you have to try again”. So let’s see how far this one goes.
I believe you just need to have that fire sizzling in your tummy and keep stoking it somehow every now and then. If you can do that, one day, the volcano will erupt out and your dream will come alive. Much easier said than done! But isn’t that what perseverance is all about? Just keeping at it?
Well, for me, for now — I’ll try to keep at getting one piece of writing out every week. This one is to you — Thanks JM :)
