The 54th Deadline: Wick

Like we all should feel, I have this inkling that my time in my current situation has a finite limit. Rightfully so. I don’t want to live where I am living forever.

That would be thinking too small. I need to think about moving beyond my boundaries and comfort zone.

To pursue what I want most out of life, at least the notion of it, requires me to be daring. Otherwise, I can and will remain stuck where I am.

I don’t want to be ejected out of my current situation abruptly by any means, yet I also know I need to prepare for worst-case scenarios…

I keep imagining my current situation like a wick that is slowly but surely burning out. This won’t last forever.

But in reverse, one could argue that it is necessary for something to light a fire within me to take action.

Time is of the essence. The more I dawdle, the more I lose a chance at making forward progress. I can’t stop now. I have to find the willpower to get this all done and sorted out. Otherwise, it’s game over.


There is always so much to discuss when it comes to the thing that lights my spirit, the element that ignites my real passions and desires in life. However, I admit my flame has been weak over the past few months and beyond.

Fanned down by insecurity, a lack of courage and everything else that I perceive as something else to keep me down…

Is it all in my head, or perhaps I am just that much of a mess? Regardless, I hate making excuses.

I am someone who is currently always thinking about practical solutions.

Problems are meant to be solved. I need to figure out the best way possible for me to this all figured out.

Once and for all.
