Let me tell you a secret.
It doesn’t matter how bad you think you are at something. There’s always going to be someone who loves what you create. In the same breath, it doesn’t matter how good you think you at something.
There’s always going to be someone who hates what you create. You don’t need to be everyone’s cup of tea. Everytime you pick up that pen or that brush or whatever it is, you’re improving. There’s no way for you to get worse.
So there’s no absolute point in quitting.
If you’re in it to please everyone.
You might be doing something wrong.
I write to an audience that doesn’t reply (but I always keep receiving reviews which is really overwhelming). I don’t get much shares or reblogs. But I like the idea that people read them regardless.
It’s okay if you don’t post that button, but I hope my writings give impact to someone, whether good or bad, it’s good to know that someone out there was moved by my words.
I just want to make you feel the spectrum of emotions.
If I could wish upon a star
I’d wish to be taken somewhere far
Away from people who pretend to care
Away from people who want to love but don’t care
If I were to find a four leaf clover
I’d wish to start this life all over
Rewrite my mistakes of the past
Rewrite mistakes I learned to regret so fast
But all I have are broken mirrors
and innocent black cats
A mind full of antique memories and old acts
An empty space with no love to share
People who pretend to care
one is made of letters
in an order
to be able to deliver its meaning.
layered with tissue,
capable of breaking
and while a heart that can beat,
and still be empty
at the same time,
there are words that sprouted
that are nothing less than
“The happiest is the person who suffers the least pain; the most miserable who enjoys the least pleasure.”
-Jean Jacques Rousseau, Emile (1762)
We all suffer something in our lives and sometimes, we becomes miserable to the point of thinking that living this life isn’t worth it anymore.
When we speak of “the good life”, what we mean by that is a life where the ordinary becomes extraordinary, the natural becomes miraculous, and the everyday becomes unique.
The everyday may seem to be made up only of small things, but let us believe in details. Every time we choose to embrace life, we are putting our best and truest face forward.
Have a nice day! 🙂
