Are You Inspired or Influenced?
To achieve most of our goals, we look for several things. Some of them are knowledge, learning, guidance, wisdom, motivation, and inspiration. In the process, we look up to few individuals around us to receive one or more of the above-said things.
My Day of Fortune
My Day of Fortune Let me tell you the story how I became 20,000 dollars richer. Now, let me warn you, this is not one of those stories when someone calls my phone threatening me, I’m running for my life, and my family is up for ransom. No, it’s not one of those, sorry to disappoint, and if you are disappointed this probably isn’t the story for you. But let me tell the story before the rest of you leave.
A Rebel or a Crab?
I used to love my star sign. I'm an Aquarius. We're creative and empathetic and true rebels at heart. According to Allure magazine, we Aquarians are unconventional and radical thinkers. We have unusual hobbies and a quirky dress sense. We are great humanitarians. We value our freedom, and can be stubborn in the pursuit of higher ideals.
The Secret to Success
Twenty-one years old. I watch her tirelessly from the dusty floorboards beneath her bed. I hear her vacant cries about the unknown; will she find love, will her poetry ever take off, will she graduate and find a job in a city far away, will all of her twenties be spent in a global pandemic? She sits in the mirror every morning, painting her face with makeup to mask the natural beauty that beams from her aura alone. She gives herself pep-talks that she finishes with a smile at herself, but as soon as that bit is over, the emotion on her face tells you all you need to know. Life is hard and some days our mental health struggles win the battle, but I wish she knew how easily I could help her find the peace of herself she’s been lacking- confidence.
Only the Aries.
I'm to blame by country singer Kip Moore perfectly sums up the Aries' personality," where there is a do not touch my fingertips done stained it," the country singer croons. An Aries is the life of the party, everybody's best friend and sometimes a wild child. Aries are also known to have a moody side where they may become impatient, irritable, or even aggressive. However, like the statement made in Moores's song, an Aries will also jump straight out of the pan directly into the fire without stopping to think. Aries is large and in charge and always comes first. So, when the season's change and March begins, it's time for Aries to shine and you better be ready for a wild ride.
I want to start off by saying I’m not a comedian; I’m a writer. And this is a fiction piece, so please read it as such. Our tale begins on a normal day as most unordinary stories do. School was the number one priority because unlike the tower of Babel, I’m not going to just start speaking in fluent Spanish. Yes; “I” or me. I’m your protangonist. You may be thinking, the audacity of her to think of herself intriguing enough to play the lead! To that I say, do remember, dear reader, this is a work of fiction. For all you know, the character I’m portraying is nothing like myself! ( But for your sake, I’ll let you know that that isn’t the case.) I’m me and me is the same as “I” as I always am. And the day of our beginning has now begun, so let's continue.
One night. One night I forgot this. One night I forgot all about this and never returned to the thought again. Grains of rice or dried beans or sand. The one in the many. One drop in an ocean. I read somewhere recently that morality is the we being present in the actions of the I. Change yourself to change the world. Make your bed if you want to change the world.
The consequences of loving others before loving yourself
I usually fight back when I see someone coming at me. I'm going to stop shielding myself and just let the stones hit me.
The Good and The Bad and The Virgo
Controlling, critical, uptight and let us not forget know-it-all; Virgos get a bad rap, I am the first to admit that I can be “hard to get along with” as my family may have told me on occasion.
If You Only Knew
The day started like any other. I woke up starring at the ceiling, lying in bed waiting for my alarm to go off. I didn’t know it then, but this day wasn’t going to be just like all the rest. I began getting ready for the day and headed down to get my morning coffee. As I was heading down, I realized I hadn’t checked my mailbox in a few days. This was very unlike me, as checking for mail was one of the more exciting parts of my day. I had a ritual that before I open the mailbox and see what’s inside, I’d say “today is the day I get rich.” I’d always thought I was destined for a life of winning the lottery and doing whatever I wanted. I had this feeling my life was going to be greatly changed by a large sum of money one day. Obviously, this was a fantasy, and in the 27 years I had been alive nothing like this had ever happened. Nevertheless, I kept the dream alive when opening the mail… you just never know what might be inside.
Who Do I Feel I Am Meant To Be In This Life?
This is the eternal dilemma of every ambitious person on earth. And not only ambitious people. Each and every one of us ponders the ubiquitous questions as to why are we here, what are we supposed to be doing, and how do we do it… It is complicated because nobody has a manual to living your best life, and the ones that I am trying to spit out through Vocal Media, are mere directions and advice, but nobody, and I say nobody, can ever answer the question for you unless it is coming from yourself. So now that I have this out of the way, let’s help you narrow down your vision and your most feasible ways of getting there.
Awaken to full Purpose
Welcome! Another pleasant day's invited our journey awaits . So let's greet it kindly and start today's warm-up with an honest thought of purpose. So let's set our minds in motion to form creative actions and desires with the majestic insight of inspiration. How do we get inspired? Better yet, how do we motivate ourselves? And how do we use inspiration to fulfill a purpose? We awaken each morning as if on autopilot to perform a set of duties in a non-specified order, a regimen to begin our day. These tasks include collecting different functions/chores, hygiene, and food preparation, picking out an ensemble for work, leisure, or physical fitness. At what level are we making our base decisions?
