Like for Likes

Like for Likes

I get the idea of like for likes,

You like someone’s post and they like yours so you both support each other the same with follow for follow and other stuff like that…

But the issue for me is how do you know someones actually liking your content for the content and just for something in return?

I would rather like someone’s content because I actually liked their stuff and expect nothing in return

and I would prefer someone to do that with my content too.

That way I know I’m actually reaching people and that there work is generally good too.

Now is no time to think of what you do not have

“Now is no time to think of what you do not have.
Think of what you can do with that there is”

-Hemingway

When Musonius Rufus was exiled from Rome, he would use that time to help the others who were also exiled. He found them an underwater spring and stated how man usually turn out better when exiled than they do whilst at home.

He came out with something along the lines of ‘When your at-home how often you see the world, how often do you see all your friends’

(Not an exact quote) but it means that you will never have everything at any one time so make do with what you have.

When we focus on what we don’t have, we lose sight of all we do. We lose sight of all the possibilities that are at hand.

We become blinded to desire.

There is so much at your fingertips.

How many days does a man live

How many days does a man live
Does he spend 75 years alive
Or is he spending those years trying to merely survive

Maybe the media has been lying
Maybe we can’t really spend our time buying life
Maybe we were just complying
Working a 9 till 5 ting
So that we could be retiring when were hardly alive
Spending all our savings on our remaining days

Maybe we only truly lived
For a week or two at most
When we found that love
And time stopped because for a moment
We was in the moment
Taking a chance hoping maybe we could get some romance

But most of the time life is a little chaotic
Even though what we do is robotic
Reapting daily those mindless tasks
Tryna survive
It’s kind of psychotic really

How many days does a man live
Does he spend 75 years alive
Or is he spending those years trying to merely survive

Bad chapters can still create great stories

Bad chapters can still create great stories

  • Cynthia Thurlow

Real life isn’t a movie or a book so that magical ending isn’t going to automatically happen,

But if you keep pushing through your struggles, through the hard times

Then you can turn this bad chapter into a great story but not if you settle this chapter for the ending.

Live until you die

Live until you die

Dan Millman (Sacred Journey of The Peaceful Warrior)

Live until you die, meaning dont just get by but actually live with meaning,

In the book quoted above there is one story where Dan and his mentor at the time are walking down the beach and their is loads of washed up star fish,

Dan’s mentor starts to pick up a starfish and walks it to the sea, then another and another,

Dan says this is pointless we’ll never save them all,

His mentor replies yeah but to this one it makes a difference

The late Chadwick Boseman made 9 movies whilst battling cancer, having surgery and chemo,

Performing his art, inspiring the next generation whilst fighting for his life

That’s living till you die.
