After days and months of procrastination, I have finally mustered some will power to begin my new blog. A blog which I do not have to be embarrassed to show to anyone who would want to check my blog.
Writing, fiction, daydreaming, these are a few things which I am quite good at and showcasing the only talent I’ve got is something which I should have done a long time ago. Although it was never done, mainly because when I was small and had all the time in the world, there weren’t any blogs. What are we talking about blogs, I haven’t even heard of Internet at that time.
And when blogs were all the rage, I did not have the time or the necessity to maintain one. A serious one. But now I have decided. I WILL manage this blog. Yes, this one right over here. And pen down my restless thoughts. After all if fighters fight we writers should write (oh well, just wrote it down for the sake of rhyming). I know , I know.. calling myself a writer seems a bit too overconfident. But some great personality has told that self-confidence can literally take you to your destination. Don’t ask me which great personality, cuz I don’t remember. Oh well, now even I`m curious. Let me Google it;
“Believe you can and you’re halfway there.”
― Theodore Roosevelt
So yeah, I guess I was referring to him.
That quote seems to be pretty hypothetical to me. Does really “Believing in yourself” help people in achieving them. Maybe there is some scientific truth to that. After all mind power is told to be amazing and real as in really real that there are people who has practiced to read other people’s minds and to move things . I am not sure whether any of you have heard that there is actually an institute in Australia which trains the mind to move things. This is supposedly called as “Psychokinesis”. Anyhow talking about mind power reminds me of a book I’ve read when I was a kid. “Matilda” by Roald Dahl. He was a great writer. He is the author of the much famous Charlie and the chocolate factory and its sequel Charlie and the great glass elevator. This is him down here:
(1916 – 1990)
Back to Matilda, that was a book which I enjoyed thoroughly as a kid. And also the fact that it was showcasing the unbelievable intelligence of girl and being a girl myself sort of made me fall in love with the character. (Yeah I used to do that since I was a kid) . This Matilda was a girl who was blessed with utmost intelligence and almost magical mind power where she could move objects from her mind, (As far as I remember she used this power to drop objects on a teacher, to sort of scare her: I don’t actually remember all the details) But I remember liking it and wishing that I had such superpowers. But alas I was grown up to find that I had none. None in the sense totally nothing, zero, zilch .Not even the superpower called as “optimism” which most normal human beings are blessed with. So yeah I’m a pessimist. A born pessimist. Hah! so that`s me.
A pessimist. sadly. (Well..I’m also not that sure whether I’m actually sad because my pessimism has been a blessing at times)
A wannabe writer
A day dreamer
And I guess I have jabbered enough for the day.So I take my bow (for the day of course, remember I`m gonna take care of this blog.. I swear to myself. I`d even write nonsense if I do not have anything to write – oh well actually that seems to be exactly what I`v done today. have written nonsense. But something is always better than nothing =) )
