Be you, always?

Be you, always.

Never try to be someone else, even for a moment.

But, here begs the question of what does it mean to be yourself?

Aren’t we all just the product of our environment and nurture?

Aren’t we all just a bunch of thoughts, ideologies and a few scraps here and there mashed up together?

How can we not be someone else if the only thing we know how to act is from someone else?

Babies and toddlers have the same disgusted reaction to things that their parents are known to be disgusted at. It is a learned reaction.

Thus, how do we separate who we are and who we aren’t?

I don’t know. I guess, just go with what’s natural to you.

Oh well, ultimately, I’m just a person with a thought and a blog.

I don’t really know the answer to it.

Maybe you can help me out.

A Different Set of Clockwork

We are all genetically different, each of us having our own set of clockwork that runs us.

All of us have our own strengths and weaknesses and it is up to us to discover what they are.

Once we are able to come to terms with them, to understand what they are and why they are, we’ll be self-aware enough to build up from there.

Many of us are not aware of our own strengths and weaknesses thus, making it hard to know what we need to nurture.

One thing is for certain, to achieve what we truly want, we need to work on our strengths. We need to nurture our strengths to reach new heights because that is what we are innately good at, our talent.

No matter how hard we work on our weaknesses, it’ll never reach the level of the Greats because we lack a key ingredient, talent.

I have always been an advocate of finding, discovering and understanding oneself. Today is not any different. Therefore, I urge all of you to take the time to think, ponder and evaluate yourself. Understand your strengths and weaknesses.

Be self-aware.

Ponder the Nature of Our Existence

Let’s ponder about our purpose on this planet.

Let’s ponder the meaning of life.

Let’s ponder the nature of our existence.

Why are we here?

Do we serve a higher purpose?

Are we here just to exist and die off?

How about the atheistic idea of propagating future generations?

I’m sure all of us have pondered about it,

The meaning of our own existence.

But most of the time,

We pushed the thought away,

“Too complicated, too pointless,” we say.

But maybe,

Just maybe,

There is a meaning to all of these seeming randomness,

Be it God,

Or some other idea.

But keep in mind,

For something,

Can never come out of nothing.
