*I love to hear what you guys think of every post.
Everyone has a dream, an aspiration, a passion. We have something to say, a story to share. There’s the need to ve noticed and admired for a thing we do. The thought to be more than average creeps into our sub conscious.
I don’t speak about the ambitions of being of being a lawyer, an accountant, a doctor. No, I talk about gifts, simple talents that we have been specially endowed with.
You see a young lady play the piano so beautifully and then the feeling comes, ‘I want to play like that ‘. You watch people in the television, in the church as they move their fingers on the keys playing melodies that fills your heart and you can’t help but wonder how it would feel to play like that.
So that thought gnaws at you. Often you imagine yourselves in that spot, a place where you are able to fill people hearts and lifts their spirits.
It’s the same feeling for people like us. People like us who wants our voice to be heard, our songs to be played, our books to be read and our talents to be appreciated.
The time is now! Though we live in a world where we are easily misunderstood, we have easier means to express ourselves. #social media. There are apps available where you can do all kinds of wacky crazy fun and creative stuffs and share it to as much persons as possible.
Where do I start from? You will ask. Personally, I understand. The thing is, just start. Stop saying things like ‘when I get older’. People our age are doing great things and getting appreciated by the world.
No one says you have to be a big shot at the first try. There’s no rule that says you have to be a full blown hit, with videos that goes viral at the first try and trust me, those that do, that definitely wasn’t the first attempt.
Try first by talking to people about it. A word of encouragement goes a long way – it helped me, for one. We get these these feelings that our parents won’t understand ( who said anything about them), or our friends (you might not be keeping the right one) or our siblings won’t understand but sneer at us. Then go online. There are people like you with similar talents, with desire to share to as much people as possible. You want to write, there’s a community of aspiring writers like you on wattpad. There are communities on social networks. Groups on facebook, whatsapp, for people like like us. Search for them. I am called #book freak at home but I joined a group on facebook; “I’m not obsessed I just to read”, “I love YA series and I cannot lie”. Its amazing to find people who feels the same way about what you love.
Then there’s starting small. Practice and practice. To my aspiring singers, dancers, writers, models, instrumentalist, the list goes on. Learn and practise and grow and work towards it. One step at a time.
And again stop PROCASTINATING. you will never get anything achieve if you keep telling yourselves “I’ll do it later.” It’s total bad vibes. SHAKE IT OFF.
Just start, the time is Now!
This is the post excerpt.
When I decided to open a blog, it was a spur in the moment kind of decision. I entering the university soon, so I have a really long holiday. Then I thought “I should do something creative while at home’ so ta-da, I did.
Of course, I didn’t know what exactly a blog was all about but am learning every day. Am discovering that it requires a lot of dedication to keep it up and running. I think the coolest part about it, is been able to interact with different persons from all over the world.
First of all, justbeingnessa is about expressing myself. I would be writing on topics that we can relate to such as (#friendship, #happiness, #family, #art #literature, #teens stuffs…) and I would love to hear you think about each posts.
I would also be blogging inspirational and motivational notes, things that would help us build our inner persons.
I would also be blogging about books, social issues, happenings around our society, fashion and fun. We would be seeing most of them from my point of view. But your perspective to every one of them is totally welcome.
