This is a follow up to my previous blog post, Goals & dreams. If you haven’t read that I recommend reading it before reading this one.
Now, to the point. This is a drawing I drew last week. I can’t draw humans though. Or that’s what I told myself. Why? I have no idea. But this is one of the big problems I’ve had related to my goals and dreams. If I keep giving myself limitations for no reason, how can I ever reach my goals?
I want to do something about my life. It might sound very clique, but please keep reading.
I’ve never had any plans to do something great or try for anything amazing. From I was very young I’ve sort of settled with that I will never be famous or anything, and that was fine. I have no obvious talents, nor have I practised anything from a very young age. I’ve done pretty good at school, though my grades have went gradually down the last few years of school because of laziness. When I was 16 I remember my Norwegian writing teacher told me to never stop writing. In a way I have failed her so far, because I don’t normally write any texts anymore. Maybe I should take her advice, and start writing again. I love writing, but I often have a hard time starting with something. And having the time to write. The closest to a talent except for my decent grades must be drawing, but as you all know that’s not really great either. Sure, I’ve learned a bit. I just don’t have the motivation or skills to take this as far as I would like; and even if I did, where would it take me?
