The Single Step

“The journey of a million miles begins with a single step”

I’m sure we’ve all heard this phrase or have seen it hanging on our 3rd grade teacher’s door on some cheesy cliche motivational poster. It’s one of those types of phrases that sticks with you, you run it through your head a few times and it sticks into your consciousness. I’ve had several teachers who had this hanging up and loved it, and it took until now that I’m older to see what that phrase truly means.

How to be Yourself

I’m not sure if any of you have ever had the kind of friends who basically have the attitude of “everyone is dying, we’re just living and maintaining until we die” but I’ve had quite a few, and let me tell you just how depressing of a person that is to be around. It’s not just the fact that they use that as an excuse to feel like be a perpetual victim and to not want to excel in any part of life, but the fact that they feel comfortable with this mindset of being a perpetual victim.

Beat Yourself Up

I’ve been told plenty of times in my life not to beat myself up, that I’m too hard on myself & many other similar things. People usually don’t understand why i’m so hard on myself, but honestly it’s sort of a prevention mechanism if anything.

Detachment

People often commend me on the fact that it’s so easy for me to ignore attacks and not take them seriously, a trait I still find it confusing that many people lack. The scope of my political and social views leave me open to being the enemy of many people, as anyone who follows me on twitter knows, but people often wonder how it’s so easy for me to just brush everything off and stick to doing what I do.
