So, I’ve been out writing articles for a magazine after just a few blog entries. I would like to tell you how much my life has changed in the last few months since I started blogging. It’s been one hell of a journey, and quite fragrantly, i still feel like I’m screaming at the top of my lungs in this roller coaster of changes.
Firstly, I would like to apologize that I’ve been so quiet. Life is ultra hectic at the moment. I’m juggling between writing articles and doing my honorers in biokenetics, together with a research proposal that I’m working on and an attempt at writing a novel (keep in mind, I have no education or experience in writing novels, yet, I am really proud to say that it is coming along really well. I’ve posted it on Wattpad for everyone to read for free. Its title is “POWERFUL”.) Time is something I rarely have. And when I eventually have time to rest, I love to spend it with the newest edition to my life. The most beautiful and wonderful girl I’ve ever met, my girlfriend.
I started blogging at the end of last year, with a total of about 14 blog entries by now I think. But, my life would never have changed if I haven’t attempted to try something new. A fellow wordpress blogger came upon one of my blogs about physical exercise and fitness (which is another one of my passions in life to which I’ve dedicated myself to) and I quote, “Fell absolutely in love with my way of writing”. She asked me if I would be interested in writing for her magazine, and without any hesitation and a smile not even the joker could beat, I was in. I am now writing full time for her, and I’ve never been better.
I enjoyed it so much that I decided to further my studies in physical exercise and human movement even more, that I enrolled to do my Honorers in Biokenetics (better understood as physical therapy). Then, after I felt like I still had a hole to squeeze in another project, I decided to write a story. Inspiration struck more than twice, and I found myself with a handbook full of ideas. So I didn’t wait for the gunshot, I started faster than Usain Bolt when he accelerates out of his blocks.
Together with all this madness, I still had time for leisure and socializing. This is when I met probably the most outstanding girl ever. She then became my girlfriend, and we couldn’t be any happier.
Life is great for me at this moment. I wouldn’t change anything if I could. But… Yes, there is a but… There are still people out there who would like just a little more. I want to share with you a life lesson as well. If someone doesn’t smile at you, or doesn’t treat you with the respect you think you deserve, do not be the same. Give what you want to receive despite what you get from the other person.
Do not fight evil with evil, but fight evil with good. Many people are so busy to survive, busy dealing with things on their tables that they forget how they sometimes behave towards others. We are then quick to judge. We act on them right there and then, but we do not always know what their life is like. Not everyone’s life is sunshine and roses like if just shared my life is like. People are not just rude, they aren’t rude for no reason… It comes from somewhere, and it’s so easy to be rude in reply. It doesn’t fix the situation, in fact, it only grows the distance between people.
Try to treat each person with the most grace and compassion as possible, especially if the other person does not act nice. Who knows, maybe they are the ones who need your grace and compassion the most.
I’ll end here for now, But my story is far from over…
