Writing a blog…take one.
If you are reading this, what I set out to do is either in motion, in place, or I failed. Before you start to critique my writing, cringe at my grammar, or laugh at my punctuations; just know, I don’t care. I am not doing this to eventually be a writer, or whatever. I respect those that do this as a hobby or a living, so I don’t want to consider myself to be one.
What made me start this blog is that I hear success stories from those that have been successful. What I rarely hear or read are the stories as they happen—whether it be, success or failure. This blog will tell the story of whether I succeed or fail in the goal I have set. To make this interesting, this blog will be written in real-time, and posted at a later date. You will have to stay tuned to find out what happens. As I am writing this, I have no idea what’s going to happen. So, in a way, we are all clueless and at the edge of our seats.
–That last line was lame
The plan is to write about two months of posts, and start posting them once or twice a month. I don’t want to write, just to write. You will eventually get bored, and I’ll bore the sh*t out of myself If I do so.
If you see the “–” symbol, that is going on in my head. I get off topic often.
Before I begin with this blog (or series or whatever this is), I want to explain the purpose of writing this, just so you know what you are reading.
–Oh, and by the way, I am writing this how I speak, and I curse a lot. If it offends you, I am sorry that I am not sorry. Just kidding (am I?).
My end goal is to live now, not when I am retired. I am not one to wait until I am broken and limited to what my mind and body can do.
–I just re-read that sentence to see if I ended in a preposition, and yes, I was doing that to piss someone off—but I failed, I didn’t end in a preposition. There you go, I just ended in a preposition. Who am I kidding? I have no idea what a preposition is—what does medical cream have to do with grammar?
–Get that joke? Neither do I.
I want to do something that helps me live life without the worry of money or time.
Just the other day, my spouse and I were driving around the area and we saw a bunch of nice houses. What surprised me was how we were reacting. We weren’t saying, “Wow, these houses are nice”. We were wondering, “what do these people do to afford these houses?”.
–I said “houses” way too much there.
I asked myself, what are we doing different than these people? We work harder than most, if not all of the people we work with, and we are driven to be the best at what we do. Like always, my spouse brought up a good point. We should feel fortunate because we are not struggling, so he/she killed the spark that I had to come up with the plan to be these people.
This situation is what brought me here to today, I want to be those people. I want you to pass by my house and ask yourself, “what does that family do for a living to have that lifestyle?”.
Also, I want to mention, I am not doing this to get rich or whatever. I am doing this so my family has stability and we could do things without worrying about time or money.
–You said that already…dumba$$.
I have always talked sh*t about what I am going to do, but I never follow through with my plan. So, the first step I decided to take is to start this blog, or at least write down what I am doing. This is my story of how I succeeded or failed. I will be documenting my attempt to be those people.
–I just thought of the title of this blog, “How to be those people”. If I somehow get this started and get that name as a website, people will call bullsh*t. I know I would.
–Writing this makes me feel weird because I am not even sure if I will actually do the work to get this blog going.
Now for the inspiration
I know that I am not the only one in the situation, so I hope that I inspire you to work toward a goal in life, without thinking of failure. You have the opportunity to follow my attempt at reaching my end goal…or witness me fail miserably. Either way, sh*t is going to happen.
To give you an idea of my current situation, I do not have startup money or a huge savings in the bank. I am literally starting from scratch. I don’t have a website for this blog, who knows when I’ll post this. I do not have experience in business, marketing, or social media. Basically, I should fail at this. But, what I do have is plan (I’ll explain later), as well as some other side things in mind. Hopefully this works out, so you, the reader, can witness and be inspired to do what I did.
Anyways, if you enjoyed reading my first post and the non-sense that goes on in my head, please stayed tuned. If you want to follow this blog, I will be posting on Facebook when these come out. I have no clue how to @ or #, or even what they do. I will figure that sh*t out and it will be posted here (wherever “here” is). Speaking of that, I should at least get a Facebook account for this blog. The end.
Thank you very much, for taking time out to read this post. Whether you root for me or not, let’s make this an experience for all of us.
–I just thought of something, I never introduced myself. Never mind, I’ll do that in the next post. Peace!
