This week has been a very eye opening week for me. I recently went to see some members of my family for the first time in over a year. I talk to them all the time, but I forgot that they are living a life also. I have been so consume about what I had going on, that I forgot about them. I used to hang around these people all the time, then I moved away and forgot about them. I did not really forget about them, I just forgot that life still goes on weather you are there or not. It is not all about me, and that some people are doing the best they can and trying to hide you from the pain because you only seem to care about yourself. I must say there is nothing wrong with putting yourself first, but you must not forgot about the people that made you who you are. I have to learn to be more gracious and open and not so close off. You never know what another person is going through. Your problems are not the only problems out there.
I know I have not posted anything in a while. That is because I have been busy writing. At the very beginning of the year, I had a goal of trying to post something everyday, but soon I realize that would be a challenge, and I was up for it. Then covid happen and to be honest life took over. I was not ready for what I was about to be dealt. When everything pretty much shut down, I must admit I did not know what to do I was lost, after a couple of weeks I took advantage of the situation and got back to reading books. I read two or three books doing that time, and they both inspired me to get more creative with my writing again so I did.
Jump to a few weeks into this lockdown I gave myself a goal to have my first screenplay written by the end of the year. I am almost done, thought it might not be good, I am happy to say that I did it, or rather I am doing it. That just goes to show that if you want something bad enough you will get tired of waiting on it to happen, you have to go out and get it. You may fall down a couple times, but you must keep trying until you reach that goal. This lockdown has not been good to me on a mental side, but it showed me ways to cope and how to deal with things that I was afraid of dealing with.
When it comes to my wealth, it has not been great, but the battle is not over and I know I can win, when it comes to my dream that is battle that I am refusing to lose and I am in it for the long haul. If there is anything I can say to people is make sure you are making the right decisions for you, so that tomorrow is better.
