Today, I want to commit to something and not someone. Something that brings joy to my heart and pleasure to my fingers. That something is my ambition, to live my dreams.
As I write this, I am thinking of how the year 2013 will unfold, but I cannot come up with a vivid imagination, not yet. I am working on it. And now, my year plan seems to work as the framework of my imagination. At least, for now, I have something to look upon, and I am grateful. In addition to that, I have a new resolve. I am not giving up my thoughts, intentions, opinion and many other things just to let others have their way, as a way of pleasing them. It has not worked in the past decade, and it never works. I gotta stay firm with myself. There is no point of giving charity to people who will not
give a damn care about it one moment later.
I started my new resolve about a week ago. The results are pleasing and somehow I notice most of the things that I had previously taken for granted.
Finally, I want to keep my misery to myself.
In a nutshell, here are the 3 things what I am committing to,
- My Ambition
- My Reputation
- My Personality (the real me, not the mask on my face)
A commitment declaration sounds better than a resolution but it could mean the same thing. What do you think?
Before I leave, let me acknowledge something profound that happened in 2012; I discovered Steven Pressfield. I also read “The War of Art“, and if it passes my small test, I am going to include it in my store (a simple list of things, mostly books, that I recommend to any remotely insane writer like me).
