Hello everyone, it’s me R.S. Noel here with another post. I hope you’re having a good day so far, and if not, I can only hope the best for you.
Today’s post will be a bit more personal.
Today marks the very beginning of my 365-day online journal on my blog. I want to share with all of you what I’ve been working on, and moreover, I want to give you an insight into what it’s like experiencing the writing process for different books/stories that I’m working on.
I want share with the world what I’ve spent the last 14 years of my life on.
It’ll be a long road, I know it will, but in the end no matter what happens I know that I’ve tried my best with what little I have.
I just turned 24 this year, but these last couple of years, I feel as though my age no longer matters to me. Everything in life is an experience; and I’ve come to really enjoy the newfound freedoms that can come with being an adult. We really shouldn’t confine ourselves to our ages any longer once we become adults. What constitutes someone to be an adult? Their mentality? The legal age set by different governments throughout the world? In my book (pun intended), if they act mature and are professional in their actions, I would even consider a teenager to be treated as an adult. I don’t like to coddle and sugar-coat things to people, especially those who are already legal adults.
Anyways, these last couple of years have been really interesting. I’ve experienced so much, I’ve met some incredible people, and moreover, I’ve gained incredible insight from countless people on their blogs and also in the real world. These last couple of years have prepared me to face almost anything in the real world (of course, I say almost because no one in the world is ever truly prepared for every single situation in their life). I’ve also come to find what truly matters in life.
I’m sure if you’re reading this now, you understand just what I mean.
Life is a ride. It’s crazy, turbulent, and wild at times. But that’s what makes it interesting. Our lives were never meant to be “perfect”. It was meant to take unexpected turns and twists. To be experienced in a sometimes messy nature, and moreover, to grow and evolve as a naturally faulty society in the world we live in. Take a hold of your life in this moment, and you won’t be disappointed. This is probably the best advice I’ve ever received in my life. You can’t wait for life to just happen to you, you have to actively work at just enjoying life and also actively working at what you want out of it. That’s the age-old question people have been asking themselves since the very beginning of time. What is the meaning of life? Well everything I just stated above could be one form of a never-ending answer.
In that same way, life is also not meant to be taken seriously. The better sense of humor you have, the higher chance you’ll have at enjoying the experiences you go through, all without losing your mind (completely). Life is about make sure you make memories in the small free time we may have in our daily lives.
Over the course of the last 14 years of my life, I have dedicated and sacrificed my own personal time to work on an extensive legacy which will one day go out into the world. It may be a while longer before the first book comes out, but I’m in no hurry at all. I know that this book series will be the legacy I live behind for the world even long after my death. It will set an example to future generations and societies to not only learn from our modern-day mistakes, but it will also remind people how to enjoy their lives and how to experience amazing and unforgettable adventures throughout their existence. Because at the end of the day, what truly matters, are the countless memories and experiences we have and share with one another.
Even through all of the hardships, cruelty, and obstacles that we may face throughout our lives; the experience should feel like you’re enjoying a nice campfire with your closest friends, family, and acquaintances. We should remember that our lives, after all the mess we go through during our workdays and such, is much more real, intimate and genuine – and no single person can ever take that away from you. Freedom is our choice alone. We can live in fear, we can live in constant worriment, or we can live with the constant nagging feeling that we’re not living up to the expectations of those around us. No matter what you tell yourself, every once in a while, remind yourself that you must forgive all that has happened in your life and you must go forward with a genuine sense of curiosity and an adventurous spirit that is unwavering and unyielding to anything in this entire world. You are unique. You are human.
I want to end my first entry by using the following quote:
