The recurrent thread, which has been running through my blog over the last few days, has been how precious life is. Today I feel the need to reiterate this. It was brought home all the more when I heard about the sad demise of an old school mate. He wasn’t old, the same age as I am. None of us know what is around the corner for us so we owe it to ourselves to make sure we live the life we want or at least be working towards it.
As a child, we have dreams and aspirations that we allow to fade as we get older and get bogged down by the daily grudge. We can’t all give up our 9-5 jobs, to chase the dream. We still need to eat, pay the mortgage/rent and bills, but we can use the downtime we have to our advantage. That is what I am doing now…I am eating, sleeping & breathing social media, #serious #social #media #overload. Let me clarify, social media isn’t my dream…but it is a necessary part of promoting my dreams. I have already achieved stage one of my dreams, seeing one of my stories published. What I am working towards now is trying to make it a success in terms of sales. I would also like to squeeze a bit more time out of my day in order to get back the part I love most…writing.
I know that it isn’t going to be an easy journey, I shall probably be the walking dead as I try to juggle all the balls in the air. Despite the exhaustion, I do feel more alive than I have in a long time.
