The 54th Deadline: Bright Side

The 54th Deadline: Bright Side

The 54th Deadline: Regardless of failure or success, you learn. Life grants people so many chances to get it right. For the past few weeks, I have been feeling just awful for a variety of reasons. I have started to eat poorly again. Away with the pseudo-diet entirely at the moment. I am lazy about doing my walk around the block. I embrace days off like they are the most important thing in the world for me. Just what the heck happened?…

The 54th Deadline: Mental Intermission

The 54th Deadline: Mental Intermission

The 54th Deadline: Regardless of failure or success, you learn. Life grants people so many chances to get it right. When you’re tired, you’re tired. No one should deny this fact when we all need to rest at some point. When dealing with the daily grind, I have come to grips that perhaps I am growing weary. I put up a good fight, but I am no machine. I need my time to recharge when necessary. As of late, this struggle has…

The 54th Deadline: Ongoing Journey

The 54th Deadline: Regardless of failure or success, you learn. Life grants people so many chances to get it right. Rock bottom.

I cannot recall a time more devastating for my self-esteem, let alone one as dangerous to fall victim to when everything in your world starts to implode. Being immature and just ill-prepared to face my problems, I succumbed to a lot of…

The 54th Deadline: Drained

Gosh, if I could have a single superpower, it would entail being struck by “lightning” nonstop. “Lightning” is my code name for inspiration. In other words, I would feel inspired always. And in all honesty, this would be an incredible power to have for a variety of reasons. No longer would I need to draw inspiration in a pinch, as the ideas could just pop into my head instantly. The sense of fluctuating motivation would be nonexistent as the mind…

The 54th Deadline: Hope

The 54th Deadline: Hope

“The worst days make me wonder why I keep going. And then, I remember that I believe in hope.” As you can see, I decided to change the tagline again. “Hope is my catalyst.” The previous “Progress is perseverance” tagline was good for me as well. But lately, I just feel like I have been regressing again. I just think I am caught in another slump. It is a weaker slump, but it is a slump nonetheless. I just feel…

The 54th Deadline: Facade

The 54th Deadline: Facade

“Life has to continue regardless, but we all must put up a front that things are OK on the surface.” Do you remember those moments when you were a kid in gym class, you get hurt a little bit and needed a timeout before joining your classmates for the rest of the activity? Lately, I have been feeling like I need a breather of sorts, but one that is a bit longer than usual. Emotionally, I feel drained and unmotivated. I…
