Since I started writing poems last week, I started looking into them. What I found was this great poem, author unknow. How many times have you wanted to quit something, or maybe did you quit, because it wasn’t working out. I don’t like to quit. Ever. I guess it’s me, being a perfectionist that quiting feels like failing. That attitude helped me tremendous in life.
I would not have ‘survived’ a depression had I quit.
I would not have finished school, had I quit.
We make the decision on a daily basis to cary on. To go for it, again…. We make that decision much more often then we realise.
Read the poem, and share you thoughts in the comments.
For months, the idea has been playing through my mind. Again and again, friends on Facebook keep telling me: ‘You should do something with your writing skills. Your posts are so inspiring!’. I started writing a book, but that will take some time to finish. Should I start a blog in the process? To be honest, I have been thinking longer about starting a blog than about writing a book. Why still be afraid to start? I can think of a million reasons why…. and as I read yesterday: Fear will only keep you away of things, love will bring you towards things.
If I learned one thing in life, it’s the importance of processing what you feel in stead of pushing it away. Writing is my way of doing that, but it wasn’t enough to just write in my dairy. I had to share my stories and experiences. Writing is a way for me to digest my feelings and experiences in life. And I don’t believe in keeping your feelings to yourself and working them out all by yourself.
I believe in sharing, in being there for each other, in knowing you are not alone. If I am dealing with some shit, for sure other people are too! Why not putting our hands together and feel the love and support of others going through the same as we do?
My name is Lotte, I’m 30 years old, live in the Netherlands and single again since about 3 weeks. The past weeks made me realise I want to do more of the stuff I love to do. One of the most important things for me is being an inspiration to other people. Being of value to their lives. That’s what gives me a feeling of fulfilment and makes me get out of bed in the morning.
Life can be messy, overwelming, dark and scary. But with the love of others and ourselfves, we can make this world a much nicer place to be.
