#oneaday 68: Limitless possibilities

9 Mar

Just saw a trailer for the film Limitless.

Just read Pete’s blog about having a bit of a crisis about what to do with his life.

Just replied to Ian’s tweet about having an existential crisis.

Just finished reading a book about positivity and reaching for the stars.

Just had a conversation about what we’d do if money wasn’t an issue.

I don’t know if I believe in co-incidences or if it’s something in the air, but everyone seems to be in a bit of an end-of-winter slump at the moment and people seem to be questioning a lot of things. Why are we here? What should we do? Why should we do it? What’s the point in anything?

I’m afraid I don’t have the answer to any of these things, but I think if people are questioning life in general, then there’s still hope. I’d hate to think I ever got to the point where I had nothing to strive for or where everything was perfect. It’s good to have a challenge. It’s healthy to wonder about what’s around the corner and to dream about what might happen when it gets here.

Keep questioning, keep challenging, keep dreaming.

When you stop doing that, then’s the time to start worrying.

    Thanks, Gem, for this and your comment. I think you’re right. I’ve had my fill of “paying my dues” and want to get what I deserve. I just feel guilty and frustrated that it’s happening slower than I want it to.

    I have made some steps forward, as I said in my post. I’m doing some writing, which I get paid for, and I love it. There’s the possibility there may be more work to come from that, too, which is good as although I am getting paid for it at the moment it’s not enough to be able to support myself on.

    We shall see. I’m of the attitude you suggest — it’s been a year, what’s a little longer? I just feel guilty being a drain on my parents, and annoyed I can’t just “make it happen”.

    Ah well. These things take time, I guess.

      It’ll happen, just believe in yourself, be responsible for your own success and just think how great it’ll be to treat your parents when you’re doing what you want to do and earning a wedge for it. You deserve to do what you love, everyone does. Keep on keeping on, kiddo!

    I was going to do a blog about the trailer for that film and how much it annoyed me. We don’t use 20 per cent of our brains or whatever, that was proven to be complete balderdash ages ago.

    Ah, first world problems.

      But look how amazing it looks! Regardless of the percentage, the idea is still the same: no one fulfills their potential and potential is nothing until it’s realised. Everyone has a reason or an excuse not to make the most of themselves. I say no more excuses!
