Your Life Is More Than Ordinary

Originally posted on Jeff Coleman Writes:

Everyday life always seems so ordinary. We get up in the morning. We work. We go home. We eat. We sleep. We repeat this cycle five or more days a week. We might stray from the routine when we have time off from our weekly responsibilities, but even in leisure, we often settle into some kind of recurring structure. It’s so monotonous. So regular. So ordinary.

But ordinary is only a minuscule component of the great epic we call life.

For all that the tedious day-to-day grind consumes us, it’s really nothing more than the thinnest of veils, behind which lies a vast and fathomless depth of exotic beauty, of incredible wonders beyond our wildest imaginings. On every level, the ordinary aspect of reality goes only skin-deep, from the daily routine that serves as the framework in which we define ourselves, in which we eventually choose, in the fullness of…

Blessing… in disguise

blessing
“It’s so much darker when a light goes out than it would have been if it had never shone.” – John Steinbeck

They say change is the only true constant in our lives. Defined as the process through which something becomes different. Some of us fight it, others choose to focus their energy on adapting to the new circumstances; to make the most out of whatever it is that has changed.

Change is inevitable.

There’s good and bad in our lives. There’s good and bad in the world around us. How we react to all that is entirely up to us.

But what I really what to write about is the so called “blessing in disguise.” Continue reading

Dreams

“People think dreams 
aren’t
 real just because they 
aren’t
 made of matter, of particles. Dreams are real. But they are made of viewpoints, of images, of memories and puns and lost hopes.”
 – 
Neil Gaiman

There are two types of people in the world: the realists and the idealists. Some realists even go as far as to call themselves cynics. I’d just say they’re idealists who once upon a time got their hearts broken.

What I’m really trying to say is this: we’re all dreamers. We all spend an awful lot of time in a strange land, one that does not exist. A promised land, one we promised ourselves when the world outside our windows seemed evil, threatening, ugly. Whenever we got our hearts broken, whenever someone forgot to keep their promise, whenever we got lied to, betrayed, or forgotten. We created that promised land with our imaginations and our hope and our love.

The land that belongs to a future where all our dreams will come true.

There’s only one problem with that. Most of us don’t act upon those dreams. They just pretend that it’s all a nice fairy tale, which of course makes them bitter and remorseful nonetheless, but they chose to believe that those dreams can never come true.

Yes, they don’t.

Because dreams rarely come true. People have to make them come true. Have to create the promised land, in reality, the same way they did inside their heads.

But that’s just easy to say and almost impossible to achieve.

Why?

Because inside your head things are always going to be beautiful, much more than they could ever be in the real world. Also, inside your head… no one can hurt you there. No one can reach inside and destroy the wonderful world you have created. The promise of a better future that keeps you going, that makes you get out of bed even when you don’t want to, that still puts a smile on your face when all you want to do is scream or cry or even die.

I find that to be sad.

Dreams are real. If they exist inside your mind… they’re not just the product of your imagination. If you imagined them, you can make them come true.

What we take for granted, day after day, didn’t use to exist a thousand years ago. Hell, most of the stuff we use on a day to day basis didn’t use to exist a hundred years ago.

The world changes because people’s dreams come true. Because will power is the only thing that stands between what’s real and what’s not. Between what’s possible and what’s not.

That’s all.

From time to time I contemplate the idea of abandoning my dream of becoming a full time writer. I get all kinds of ideas in my head. I’m just pretending to be a writer, and I’m not really good enough, and that I should simply give up.

A couple years ago, before I started this blog, one of my uncles asked me about my writing. Back then I was uploading stories on Wattpad, and I was having a lot of fun. So I told him that I had talked with a girl from Etiopia, who said that she really enjoyed my stories. So much that she cried.

And, well, he asked me about money. Was I earning enough?

In fact, I wasn’t making money at all. And I told him that, and I told him that when a stranger genuinely appreciates your art, that’s worth more than all the money in the world.

I was happy back then. Continue reading
