My friend Ahmad and I often find ourselves having conversations with each other about life lessons we’ve had so far (mainly me slating men for being fuck boys lol) But It’s always good to see life from another point of view and also Ahmad follows and loves my blogs and wanted to give writing a shot, his words are always true and inspiring so these are his..
Perspective: What you make it to be!
“If only you could see, the way I see things to be”. Everyone has their own outlook on life, to situations, and to the very moment or event you’re experiencing in this instant, each unique, beautiful and deeply personal to the beholder.
Just to put things in perspective, the same way you are currently sat in front of a laptop or phone reading this blog, not noticing the smaller details around you, keep yourself there and imagine a camera pan out; above and beyond you and now see the image of yourself, sat wherever you are, in front of a laptop or holding a phone, reading a blog, amongst all the other crazy things going on around you.
Now that, is perspective! The ability to see from your viewpoint, but to zoom out and to see your perspective, from another perspective. Wow!
In case you haven’t noticed already, this is kind of a takeover, which has been agreed to after some discussion. Might as well get the ball on my imaginary career in journalism rolling (one of the many imaginary careers I have the ability to visualise myself as lol) but yeah, thought I’d leave ya’ll with some food for thought.
You might be thinking, “a lad writing a blog?”, haha let me take the time to mention that I grew up with 5 sisters so I know the female specimen quite well, and to all the people out there that see this thing as somewhat of a taboo (if that’s the right word), all I can respectfully say is “we’re not the same”. The word taboo reminds me of Tom Hardy who is damn fine and handsome but yeah, that’s a topic for another conversation haha.
The message I have for you today is, and apologies for being blunt but, “do whatever the fuck you wanna do, and then some”. Me personally, I like or rather LOVE photography (Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ahmadravat8/) and the kind of buzz I get from waking up early in the morning, hitting the motorway and taking a shot, yes just a single shot, is indescribable. But remember, with great things come great sacrifices, but that’s only true if you perceive it as a sacrifice. I see it more as an investment.
As I’m sitting here writing this now, I still feel the remnants of the tiring decision I made whilst working on the Saturday. Sat at work while the weather is “hella fine” thinking wow how am I really inside right now, so what did I do? Went home after work, packed my bags and hit the motorway. Within 24 hours, I’d covered 550 miles from 9 hours sleep in the 48 hours prior to that, “fuck it lol” I said. A lack of sleep, but an investment nevertheless, on a personal level, in myself, one which I’ll never have the words to explain.
You only have a day once, so, just do whatever you need to do! We’re all human and we all go through things. What really matters is how you decide to deal with that situation at hand. And yes, how YOU decide to deal with it, because nothing is a reflex, and you have the FULL ability to make a decision in your best interest and
determine the outcome. You just need to be crazy enough to deal with the result either way.
For those who more often than not, get the short end of the stick, don’t stop being who you are and don’t let a situation take over your life. Time passes and one day you’ll look back at how insignificant that moment is to you in the present. As we humans are forgetful, we can easily let go if we really want to, but often, we like experiencing that pain, just because it evokes a different set of emotions. You can sit there and feel sorry for yourself, that “yeah shit the worlds against me and I’m just trying to be good”, but guess what darling, hate to break it to you but NO ONE CARES, so why do you?
So many people hold back from being who they are; or end up being someone who they’re not; worrying about what people think about them and giving them the honour of passing judgment on them. Simply said, why does everyone have to be the same? Is there only one way to live and does everyone have to conform to it? No, quite the opposite, diversity is intriguing and brings about curiosity which is key to a healthy life.
Get out of your mind, stop boxing yourself in because it is devastating and you create problems that don’t even exist, at least not yet, but what’s the point of “preparing” for a totally hypothetical situation. When it comes about, think about and deal with it then.
If you can’t love yourself, how can you expect someone else to?
That ends my stint at becoming Michael Morpurgo (Private Peaceful is a must read by the way). A little note on the usual author, Charls is a brilliantly motivating individual and quite frankly, is inspirational. She made me reflect on myself and for that I’m forever grateful.
Peace out and God Bless
