What if I fall?

“What if I fall?” 
“Oh my darling, what if you fly?”

Do you ever ask yourself if you like the person you are? If you are who you’ve always wanted to be? Do you know who you want to be?

To be honest, it wasn’t until a few weeks ago that I realized who I really wanted to be. I want to be that guy who tells people they can fly. I want to see the magic they have stored up in their hearts for so long. And I want to make them see it, I want to make them use it. Because, truth be told, falling is just another way to fly.

Hard work vs. talent

“Successful and unsuccessful people do not vary greatly in their abilities. They vary in their desires to reach their potential.” - John C. Maxwell

They say hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard. And I do agree. After all, talent is never just an innate ability. It’s a lot more than just that.

It’s hard work, perseverance, discipline, vision, courage, faith, and a bunch of others all mixed up into one.

But can hard work alone make you a good artist? Continue reading

The next five days

Hi everyone,

Five days. A lot of funds to raise in order to reach our goal. As usual, every contribution counts. Any amount matters.

Why?

Because little by little we get to achieve a lot. Step by step.

The funds will go towards acquiring a new computer, which I urgently need, since I’m working on borrowed gear, which I’ll have to return by the end of the month. A computer which will help me keep on writing, blogging, and releasing my future novels, short stories, etc.

Also, any of you who contribute at least $50 will be rewarded with a spot on the “Blogs we love” section of irevuo.

Those of you who contribute at least $100 will get a blog post reblogged on this blog, and will get featured as sponsors for the rest of the year on this blog and on story-a-week.

If you want to help me out, you can do so here.

Once again, thank you all for your help, support, and encouraging comments. I would have given up a long time ago if it weren’t for you guys,

Cristian

Life’s not fair

life2

The truth is that it doesn’t matter what you believe in, because some things will always be out of your control. Living cautiously has nothing to do with the things that happen to you. Or at least that’s how I chose to see life a long time ago.

And I do my best not to regret stuff. Or feel sorry for myself. It doesn’t work all the time. Continue reading

Hope. Pain. Strength

hope“I’m not saying that everything is survivable. Just that everything except the last thing is.” John Green

Most of us don’t realize how strong we are. It seems as if we start off as being invincible. Or at least feeling as if we are. And life starts to happen, and we fail, time and time again, and suddenly we grow afraid of failure, oftentimes afraid of success just as much.

The trick is not to hide your pain behind a smile. Continue reading

To whom it may concern

letterI’m twenty three years old, and in that short time frame I’ve learned that life is rarely fair. But it goes on. Whether we like it or not, life goes on.

Maybe we live in a dangerous world. Maybe this world has always been “unsafe” for those who weren’t sure what to do.

And I’d like to tell you there’s nothing to be afraid of, I’d like to tell you that failures build a man, that every fall is also a step forward. That what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger…

But the truth is that, most times, what doesn’t kill you makes you wish it did. Continue reading

How to write a great blog post

First, I’d like to say that there is no how-to guide or recipe for writing a brilliant post. That being said, I’d also like to point out the fact that some posts seem to perform better than others, but there’s no norm here. Lists and guides usually receive more comments and likes than “normal” blogs.
