The 54th Deadline: Chump

The 54th Deadline: Chump

At this point, I can admit it – I have been nothing but a huge chump throughout my life. Always following the rules. Still trying to stay in my lane. Always trying to play it safe. But what does it get me? Where does it take me? Nowhere. I just feel so trapped at times. Nothing ventured, right? If I do not show some kind of courage, some notion, even a smidge, of gumption… Where else would I be? That’s…

The 54th Deadline: Wick

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….

The 54th Deadline: Getting Past Obstacles

The 54th Deadline: Getting Past Obstacles

One particular mentality I really want to adopt to the maximum degree is the notion of always looking for a solution. A way in. A means to get past a wall. A way to get over it. A way to break right through if necessary. This notion is fundamental when you think about how many of us can let stupid problems stop us in our tracks. In plenty of cases, something blocking your way is only as bad as you…

The 54th Deadline: Soul

The 54th Deadline: Soul

Do you believe in the notion of “enriching” one’s soul? I do. Otherwise, what is the point of living then? If people didn’t enrich their soul, nourish it with things that make it all more meaningful and significant, we all would just be out diggin’ in some quarry. We might as well be some mindless zombies working in some factory. It is quite the luxury to me for anyone to be able to learn, grow, understand and then some. But…

The 54th Deadline: Sprout

The 54th Deadline: Sprout

There are days where I do question what I have done up to this point. Whether positive or negative, life requires you to learn plenty of lessons. With that said, everything you do leaves your mark in this world (even if the perception of it may seem insignificant from afar). I like to think that everything I have acquired, every random person I have met, every interaction, every skill or ambition is going to sprout into something spectacular at some…

The 54th Deadline: Monotony

The 54th Deadline: Monotony

I don’t get excited for days that much at the moment, and this is something that scares me. I feel like I have trapped myself in some kind of loop. It’s such a constant feeling of going through the motions. The monotony¬†is real. Very real. There are moments where I feel frustrated with myself because I can pinpoint what needs to change to shake things up. It’s the thing that frightens me more than anything else about it all. I…

The 54th Deadline: Trial

The 54th Deadline: Trial

Over the past few years, I have felt like life has been taking me along this ongoing, neverending trial of sorts. This journey has challenged me in all sorts of ways. It brought me to the brink of personal ruin. I hit my lowest points many times, and yet I still manage to stumble forward. Albeit slowly. Albeit pathetically at times. There is something about me that wants to keep going forward no matter what. Resilience? Stubbornness? Stupidity? All I…
