Selfreflection by Pappa Püllï

Hai awesome followers and people, shit is getting serious now
       I want to dive a little deeper. Lets explore our true selves. Lets take all of the minotiny out of life. Take all of the stress of our daily lives out of the picture. Take all of the flood of information coming at us on a daily basis. Lets take all the synical comments, self motivation speeches, positive thinking books, expert advice and so forth. Let's  take all of that out of the equation and look at one simple concept. Take a moment and close your eyes. Think back to when you were a child. What was the happiest moment that you can recall. Think about what you liked to do for fun. Think about what you as a child aspired to become when you grew up. Think about those moments when you would daydream about what you wanted to do when you grew up. Now look at what stands out in your mind the most. For example I have always loved to draw. When I was a child I would get in trouble for drawing on everything. As I got older I noticed that I looked at things a little different. I would basically break pictures down ( separate the shapes, colors, values, tones) as if it were second nature. I was also interested in architecture. I loved to look at buildings, castles,  and bridges. You could say I was fascinated. As I got older those interests never seem to change. Today I still not only draw, but paint as well. You may have simular interests or you may not. I speak of this because even to this day if I close my eyes I know that I was meant to do this. It's what I love.
       Now to return back to that simple concept. What where you truely meant to do in life. At this piont we need to look at what makes you happy. If a person is stuck in a career that they are not happy in they will not be successful. You have to have passion in everything that you do. Now that we have fugured out what makes us happy and what we have always aspired to do in life we need to look at why we are not doing it. Where did we lose ourselves. I can tell you from personal experience it is very easy to get off track , but it's never to late to turn your life around and head down that road to true self fullfilment. Utilizing this one concept opens up so much opportunity in life. It's liked an invisible guide pionting you to the right direction in life and guiding you through each step. Happiness is the golden key.
            Once you have discover this the next step is to set things in motion. Set a goal. Goals are very important. Look at alot of the famous actors. The majority are children and adeloscents. This is because children are dreamers. Something sparks there interest or a talent surfaces and they not only aspire to be great but set goals and work to achieve them. Even at a young age they are basically raw talent and they start to perfect thier talent( classes, drama associations, small theater). If you take an adult and put he or she through an audition and lets just say they have been acting for a few years and you put a child actor who has grown up in the business and basically acted all of thier life the child actor will usually get the part because they are seasoned with experience. The same goes for singers, dancers ,sports. It all developes from childhood. We lose that as we get older. We stop dreaming. Dreams are like visions. They can become reality. We just have to create that reality.

  3. Unfortunately most of us have to go into a field or get a job we're not comfortable with, and as such lead shitty lives.

  9. nice write up, the main reason I don't always achieve what I want is because I am kind of a shy person. It is hard for me to be very social and feel happy at a place.

    Keep up the nice writing!

    Me too! I still do that all the time. I'm a very visual thinker- my thoughts occur as images instead of words much of the time.

  20. I think more than setting defined goals as a youngster (though I'm all for goals), I am of the opinion to set standards for living, not necessarily easy to measure against, but things like making sure I enjoy what I am doing, to push myself and of course have fun have had just as big an impact in my life.
    Great read. Followed.

  34. I'm not sure I agree with you on the whole children and childhood thing. We usually see our childhood as happy, but that's just retrospective idealizing, a trick of memory. Children are often vicious, selfish beings, definitely not a role model. But with that description comes a brighter look - if you're old, but you just found your dream, hobby or love, you're in the perfect age to pursue it.
