“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”- 2 Timothy 2:15 #MyBestVerses
I was so sure I was writing my Book, then I realised I was trying to write a perfect script to fit into the pages I have read all my life. Been speaking a lot, thinking exhaustively, laughing tirelessly, reading sporadically, but then I refused to write ceaselessly.
If anything has ever encouraged me at this stage, it would be the beautiful quotes that have been birthed from my journey so far. I guess all my days spent in Libraries, looking up great Authors, collecting awesome quotes and acting out what I learnt, have been worthwhile in the end.
“We do not have the time and place to be depressed.”
I lost my writing style at some point, yes I did…Sometimes, I may not be able to bring myself to write a Poem, or write a nostalgic piece, or understand what to write at some point. In between living an experience filled life, taking chances, acting out plans, innovating my strategies, and taking a break every now and then, I forgot to write about every single moment…The miraculously good, the seemingly bad and the forgettable ugly.
Although, in between the unwritten posts and write-ups, I eternally keep a healthy mind.
“Be inspired. It is a state of the mind.”
What was I going to write about? Yes! The inability to read anymore. I tried, so bad, to read some more. I just couldn’t. I bought books, would still do, but I don’t read them anymore…Yes, I am growing my Library, and I love giving out books a lot, but I can’t read them exhaustively again. There are so many awesome reads, I pick the first Chapters, and some other Chapters, absorb the full picture and move on. A little here and a little there and I get it, I may not exhaust the reading. I’d rather play the pages out in my mind or act them out for myself in real life.
Maybe I grew to ‘read short’, analogous to ‘think smart’, I guess? Basically, I keep the inspiration coming.
“Laugh and live.”
When I say, I learnt to laugh, I really do not remember my story. Maybe it’s because it was more of an escape than a choice. You see I just couldn’t anymore…I needed to just start laughing and stick with the happy life. No, I wasn’t a sad teenager…pretty much an introspective one. The only issue was, ‘my thinking abilities showed all over my face’. So, it was during those years I stumbled on the reality of life…To live in a seriously amused way.
“The hour has come to get brilliant again.”
Oh well, my days of experiencing a ‘plateau’ state are running out. It’s time to get back into the books for a season! Yes, no burnouts needed…If I would write, I should read. I should not be disconnected from reading even in this state, I sure read a lot of quotes, short write-ups, short poems, and experiential writings. I read not just to understand but to relate, commend, stay relevant, et al.
Pretty much, to stay brilliant always…Spiritually, mentally and otherwise.
“When you have a chance to escape or stay unexcited…I hope you escape.”
…In Books this time around, in Books.
Most important of all…
