Greetings Barbarians! Long days and pleasant nights!
If you ever told me two years ago that I would be blogging, I’d straight up laugh at your face. While I do have my sporadic streak of creativity, I never imagined writing on a steady basis. But the truth is, I was making an excuse for myself back then.
For a man, there are three important roles that he must play – a provider, a protector, and a creator. I love writing as it allows me to be a creator. It allows me to create something entertaining and at the same time useful. And it all started when I stopped making excuses and spend a very little amount of time to pursue writing.
Stop hoping for any completion in life because nothing is ever going to be over. Get off your butt and start making it happen right here, right now. Stop making excuses for yourself and be free to do what you wanted to do. Find your heart’s true desire and start doing something about it right now. Start now, even in little steps or little time; do not postpone. The important thing is for you to start now so that you will have no regrets in the future. A man is defined by his mission and a man who has an unfulfilled mission is unhappy.
Focus on your mission in life above all, regardless if it will succeed or not. If a man can’t be faithful to his mission, how can you expect him to be faithful to his woman? An unfulfilled mission leaves a gaping void in a man’s heart, that neither a woman nor any other vices can fill.
Speaking of women, stop hoping that someday your woman will be fundamentally different. You cannot change her because you wanted to. If you find your woman to be intolerable, you should let her go and don’t look back. Her disappointment and resentment would grow with your intolerance. While you would become even more intolerant as she becomes more wary of your capacity for love. Let her go, you would do more harm in staying.
Yet, if you find her to be merely distasteful or a hassle; understand that she will always be this way. Remind yourself that you can’t change her; instead, relax and give her love. Think of her complexities that made you choose her in the first place. Do not attempt to fix her, do not bring an end to her chaos – because her chaos is her. To end it is to end the very essence of her. Touch her, embrace her, wrestle her, scream back and forth, but do not try to end what irritates you. Your love may restore her but your attempts to fix her as well as your frustrations never will.
Following a dream may not bring you happiness, but it sure will give you meaning. Nothing is worse than going through life thinking of what-ifs. Instead, aim to live a life free of it… A meaningful life is a life lived with fulfillment and free from regrets, doubts, and what-ifs. You, your woman, and your children deserve the best man that you can be.
If you already know your heart’s desire, follow it right now. In case you don’t, then find it now. Stop wasting time drifting in and out of consciousness, be aware that your time is limited. Find your treasure, much like the shepherd boy in The Alchemist. Start small and start now, don’t wait for life to happen – you’ve got to make it happen. Don’t be the old crystal merchant in the story who waited and waited until it’s too late.
Never wait for things to get better. I hate to break it to you but stop believing the bullshit that is “someday”. Someday would not happen if you don’t do something now, it won’t magically happen because you want it. Act now, even in little steps; don’t allow yourself to get lost in your obligations. Don’t allow yourself to be trapped in existential dread. Be bold, be daring, be smart, be who you always wanted to be.
To courage, freedom and the virtue of not waiting!
