Learning the fundamentals.
Today’s task is to answer the above questions.
A very interesting task, as I am not so clear on why I am here, you will notice from my About page that I am all but a little confused at the moment.
I first started the blog with the hope to travel around and promote a sustainable lifestyle while spreading beautiful messages from people i meet along the way.
I hoped for a positive blog page, where people would come to laugh, feel inspired and realise that anything is possible!
Due to a lack of financials My trip was cut so short that it never even really started. I had so much going on and planning ahead that I was always missing out on the most important time of all, the present!
Who am I and why am I here?
I spent 2 nights in Amsterdam last week where I had hoped to begin my adventure. It was never going to work.
Their is a number of reasons that my masterplan crumbled before I could even begin but a great place t starto in my preparation would have been to sit and ask myself, “who am I and why am I here?” before getting to the Netherlands.
I arrived their and than began asking myself questions like this, I thought I was prepared but i could not have been any more wrong.
Wandering around the canals and weaving through the red light district I had many thoughts float swiftly across my mind.
The one thought that floated abit less than swift than others “who am I?”
I am an over active optimist who has absolutely no value on money, I want everything to happen yesterday and feel that nothing is impossible. So much so that I feel like anyone can achieve anything. And I still believe they can. But what I have learned is in order to achieve any success, wether it lies within your talents or not, Preparation is key. Wether its hitting the books and studying, researching and doing some organisation or contacting people who have once succeeded in the area you hope to dominate, It is the corner stone to all success.
Yes, this may be blatantly obvious, but with the attitude that anyone can do anything it just took me bit longer to notice the massive elephant in the room.
So now, why am I here?
I guess thats a question we all ask ourselves and very few of us can answer.
Some can and they seem to be the happiest most care free people on the planet.
I have asked myself that question many a time and always can come up with one answer.
“To make people happy”
And I feel most of the time thats what I do. But in order for me to make people happy I must be truly happy in myself. And I am. For the most part.
I am truly grateful for all the magical people in my life and amazing opportunities that I’ve had so far.
I cannot say I am truly happy though. Yes i am happy. But until I am contributing socially and spreading positivity and happiness on a large scale I will never be truly happy.
But That day will come. I know it.I have many big dreams, But no idea how to snooze off in order to make these dreams a reality.
I would love to own my own self sufficient centre where people come to learn about themselves, further themselves and live a full quality life. “Gather,Grow,Develop”
I would love to own my own production company “endless opportunity productions” giving the working class person a platform to follow their dreams.A production company where the opportunities truly are endless!
I hope to some day open a chain of coffee shops “cuppa cafa!” where convicts, homeless and those with alcohol and drug problems have an opportunity to gain work experience, have a place to stay and earn some money to get back on their feet and re renter the ridiculously fast paced world.
I hope to travel around In 1960’s sky blue and white VW cooking free food for homeless,hungry and refugees and allow them give a message to the world, in which i would call this project “Food for all”
But for now All I have is a pocket full of dreams.
You’re definitely thinking wow this guy is a dreamer, But Hey, Im not the only one! 🙂
One day I hope to fill those pockets with more than dreams, I hope to fill them with happiness, joy and an abundance of wealth.
So my blog will be a platform for short stories and poetry, developing my writing and getting the creative juices flowing a couple of times a week. Aswell as the diary of an optimistic unorganised young man with a pocket thats so full of dreams theirs no room for anything else.
If you would like to follow me and see if I can make more space in my pockets to make my dreams become a reality, than dive on in to the always entertaining and sometimes downright ridiculous life of Dalian Roche! 🙂
Have you had a great day, a long day or a tough day?
