Today, my dear readers, was one of the days where my mind just completely shuts down, and can only do the basic, predefined functions like…existing for example. I tried, and tried to write a blog post this morning (Okay, I’m lying. I didn’t try hard at all. You got me, but wait! I’m gonna explain why I didn’t), but I couldn’t. Don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t feeling bad at all (well, when I woke up I did have a bit of a head ache, but it was gone before I knew it. So it doesn’t count), it’s just that my mind was blank as the TV screen when it’s turned off.
Honestly, it was (too) quiet and peaceful.
Instead of forcing myself to write, I started making music, and minimalist images (since they don’t require me to use my brain), and now, when I’m finally feeling like I can access my brain, I’m writing this post.
But, if I had tried to write a post when I totally didn’t feel like it, things might have been different. It’s true that I can force myself to write, but that totally ruins the whole point of it. I blog because I wanna have fun, so if I ever force myself to write, I don’t think we can call that having fun anymore. And, obviously the quality of the article wouldn’t be that great which in turn would only make me feel worse for not coming up with a better article. So, why even volunteer and make things bad for yourself?
At times like these, going with the flow is the perfectly right thing we can do (imo). Maybe that’s my brain’s way of rejuvenating itself, and if that’s the case, taxing my brain to think something would only make it harder for the brain to heal itself. It might even make things worse.
But, we can take advantage of the situation, and make the most out of it. A calm mind is not that compatible with writing (in my case at least), but it is totally compatible with making music. It’s like having a field spell activated and using the cards that benefit from that spell, you’d know what I’m talking about if you’ve watched yu-gi-oh. For those who aren’t familiar with yu-gi-oh, field spell is something like a stat-booster for specific types of cards.
And that’s what we call living life to the fullest, right? Being grateful for what we have right now, and making the most out of it. At least, that’s what I think that it means.I know there are times when we have to force ourselves, but just remember that it’s not the case all the time. If there is no time restrain, you can procrastinate by doing something that comes later in your to-do list, and when you finally feel like you are up to the task, you can come back and give it a shot. It’s a win-win situation. You know how to make the most out of your situation, you just have to go with the flow, that is all.
So, that’s it. Another beautiful day (it’s been raining all day, and its so amazing), and another new lesson learned.
