72: Build Your Own

Every person is the master in their own home

Would you accept being bossed around in your own home by a stranger?

Would you even accept it from a close friend or family relative? I hope the answer is no, I mean why would you allow yourself to be bosses around, not in your own home!

We all may not be able to rule or control many things in life but we can definitely rule, control what happens in our own home

That is our domain, regardless of how big or small it is

That is our home – we should treat our lives in the same way. Why would we allow anyone to determine, decide or define any aspect of our lives that contradicts who we are or who we desire to become

We have to build our own

Our own homes, businesses, opportunities and ultimately lives

If we don’t build it then guess what? We will ask someone else to rent a room in the house they built which means they will determine everything for us, the cost of rent, curfew, whether we can bring guests or not etc

Understand that everything I’m writing should be taken metaphorically

Building your own house means taking charge of your situation and building a house that is large enough to serve as a home for the many facets of things you want to do

Build your own and nobody can take it from you and if they did you have gained the skills required to build another one

Be well


65: Early To Rise

I love it when I feel like I’ve already won the day and my day hasn’t even started yet

I woke up early today without planning to do so the night before and just sat down and wrote more of my screenplay

I’m really struggling with this one so the more time I can dedicate to it, the better

The action of waking up early and attending to something that I declared as important to me had such a positive effect on what I think and feel about myself

It was almost like a declaration that I am the type of person that will do whatever it takes to make sure my goals are achieved

That feeling won’t last, I know but it’s still nice to know it deep down inside and to see it demonstrated in real time

I’m 11 pages in and still grappling with doubt and confusion about what I’m writing, whether it’s any good or not

‘CHRISTMAS BLUES’ centre’s around a newly divorced young couple feeling forced to spend Christmas day with each other for the sake of their friends and families who are unaware that they recently parted ways

That’s kind of the storyline at the moment and the plan is to film in in December, right before Christmas this year – so it’s not that long to go, there’s a lot to do between now and then to make sure that the project sees the light of day

So rising early to make a dent towards it is encouraging for me because it means I am slowly but surely starting to fully commit to it

Hope you all have a great day

Take chances

Take risks

Smile and know that today is a day you will never get back again so why not make the most of it?

Be well
